I’m currently blogging about the 5 shoes that every woman/girl must have in their closet, on their shoe rack, or on their feet. Every Monday and Thursday, I will talk about one of the five shoes that are a necessity. Right now, we’re onto shoe number two! The perfect little number for you to get started at work.

Black (Patent) Pumps

Black pumps are a necessity for the working woman. Professional workplaces require closed-toe shoes, so black pumps are the perfect solution. If you prefer to be a little bit more flashy, get them in patent. Like Rachel Zoe said, patent is something that is timeless. It will never go out of fashion! Or if you are willing to spend a little bit more money, you can buy them in leather.

Don’t think you can only wear these pumps to work though.. You can wear them with a pair of jeans or on a girl’s night out. Pumps are a staple in a woman’s closet and black gives them the ability to match with any type of outfit that you have on. You just have to make sure that you get a pair of comfortable ones that can be worn for a long period of time. Because black pumps are so easily found on the market, you can decide which type you want to invest in. There are makes ranging from Payless, Aldo, to Christian Loubutin. It also depends on the type of heel that you are interested in as well. If you prefer to stand steady on your feet, a shorter and thicker heel would be more suitable for you like the Ecco Coventry above. Or if you prefer to have height and stilettos, the Charles by Charles David Pompadour would be a great pick.

Starting this week, I’m going to blog about the 5 shoes that every woman/girl must have in their closet, on their shoe rack, or on their feet. Every Monday and Thursday, I will talk about one of the five shoes that are a necessity. Trust me, if you’re the kind of girl who doesn’t like to have a lot of shoes, then you would definitely be satisfied with and see my reasoning behind the need of at least five. So here we go, shoe number one!

Ornamented/Metallic Thong Sandals

A pair of flip-flops is something that everyone likes to have in their closet, they’re easy to put on and comfortable. But if you only want to have five shoes in your closet, that pair of flip flops needs to become a pair of “thong sandals.” Personally, I think that “thong sandals” are a fancy version of flip-flops… after all if Louboutin came out with a pair of thong sandals and called them flip-flops, that wouldn’t sound too chic would it? So thong sandals, flip-flops, whatever you want to call them, are those shoes that you can easily slip on and form a V on the top of your foot. The thong sandals that I consider one of the five necessary shoes are made of a different material than your typical Old Navy or Haviana flip flops.

So why are these thong sandals necessary? Because they are just oh so versatile and are the perfect alternative to those cheap-looking rubber flip flops. With a pair of ornamented thong sandals, you can go to the beach with them in your swimming suit, and see how the ornaments glitter in the sun against the brown sand. Or you can slip them on with a cute flowy dress and look perfectly suited for summer weather. And last but not least, you can wear them just like you would wear a pair of rubber flip flops–on a quick trip to the supermarket in a pair of jeans. The main difference is that nobody would think you’re under dressed or too casual because they’re metallic and beautifully adorned with jewels, shells, etc.
