I’ll never forget the day I bought these beauties (and I’m super sad this picture is blurry, because these shoes are perfection; the small picture in the collage is a little clearer).  I was shopping with a friend and when I found these on clearance at Forever 21 (this was right before I decided I could no longer wear cheap shoes), they were a no-brainer.  I mean, really, who doesn’t need black and white lattice shoes with white flowers and red cherries on them? Plus, I love their vintage vibe.

Do you ever buy shoes first, and then build the outfit around them?
