Wearing red is not something I feel like I can do easily.  About a year ago, I shared my red hesitation in this blog post, and a year later, quite frankly, I still feel the same way.

Red screams,”LOOK AT ME! I AM SEXY! ALL EYES ON ME!”…And I’m not saying that type of attention is always negative, but sometimes wearing red lacks a chic-ness…it lacks a quality of class and can appear like you are trying too hard. But being someone that loves red, I have been trying to find other ways to add it into my wardrobe…and these Sole Society shoes have fit the bill perfectly.

When paired with the right outfit and accessories, a red shoe can change the whole dynamic of an entire outfit: An outfit can be simple and understated…take a basic black dress for example, but then when the eyes scroll to your feet….BAM…a new level of chic has arrived! And if trying new colors, like red, or new trends, like lace up booties, makes your pocketbook a little bit nervous, well, Sole Society’s $70 price tag certainly won’t!

Saving a buck AND turning heads with a showstopping red shoe?!

That’s the chicest combination, like, ever.

    Hi Courtney…I agree with you on wearing red but this is an ideal way to incorporate it subtly. I just started wearing red lipstick (Mac’s Viva Glam Rihanna lipstick) and I love it! What lipstick are you sporting in these pics? Looks great… inspire! Hugs.

    Ahhhh those shoes! I actually love red, but mostly as an accent color too, as you wore it on this outfit. Red shoes/purse/accessories with an outfit in subdued colors– perfect!
