The older I get, the more calculated my wardrobe investments become. I assess the pieces that have lasted the longest in my wardrobe and I use them as a benchmark for buying new pieces. One of the things I spend the most money on, that last the longest, are shoes. I have friends who swear by one shoe style and continue to re-buy the same shoes when the originals wear out. I continue to resole and repair my favorite shoes until my cobbler tells me they aren’t worth the cost of the repair. Currently, I am wearing out these black boots.
Whatever shoe shopping style you choose, you can always appreciate a beautifully made shoe. Which brings me to today’s subject… The Row shoes. Made in Italy, the Resort 2017 collection is comprised of paired down, classic shapes that women of every age can appreciate and wear. Investing in shoes from The Row is something I’ve been considering for my upcoming birthday. Above you’ll find my selects. There is something for every occasion. If only this Resort collection was available before I got married last October, I would have worn the sandals throughout our entire wedding week in Mexico. Instead, I am dreaming of the winter boots with treads, a minimal, classic winter boot that doesn’t make you want to vomit, and is sure to help you navigate the icy streets of the city.
