Fantastic Finds: Shoes under Fifteen Dollars

Don't you wish you had a closet full of fun, flirty designer shoes? I definitely do. Wearing the right pair of pumps can not only alter your outfit, but your outlook as well. There's just something about strolling down the street or sashaying into a soiree wearing eye-catching soles. Unfortunately, not all of us can afford a new pair of Louboutins or Blahnik's every few months a la Hollywood celebrities. Luckily, over the past year I've discovered that it's not as hard to fake as you'd think. The next time you're on the hunt, why not try venturing into your local discount shoe store -- you'll be surprised at what you find. Here are some of the gems I picked up recently, all for under $15:

Now, I personally adore each pair shown above, and am constantly getting compliments on my shoe style from fashionable friends working in the industry. Until I can realize my dream-closet of Prada and Jimmy Choo, fashionable local finds are great supplements. Plus, at $10-15 a pair its easy to stock up on different styles, as well as replace those that get scuffed or worn. Here are some tips on finding flats and heels that look like they came straight from Barney's: 

1. Stick to solid colors. This will also help you pair your shoes with multiple outfits.          
2. Avoid embellishments. These often look quite tacky, and more often than not fall off anyways.
3. Avoid toe cleavage. Let's keep them covered, ladies.
