Stay Strappy

This summer saw the 90’s back like they never left, and with that some uhmmm “not so pretty” shoes gained popularity. Birkenstock-esque slip-ons, chunky lug soles and kitten heels traipsing the streets and man, oh man, the way seeing a pair would just rub me up the wrong way. I mean, I get their comfort appeal and agree that some of those styles bring a tomboy casual chic look together nicely, but they just aren’t my taste. Enter one strappy saviour… bringing sunshine and rainbows to my summer shoe closet.

Also resurrected from a bygone age of the nineties, the minimalist heeled sandals have proven to be quite easy to wear with just about any look. I’m not really a buy the same thing in different colours kind of girl, but finding styles of this shoe in different variations was a piece of cake, it’s deciding which pair to wear that has me stuck between a rock and a hard place, just minutes before walking out the house.

Needless to say these babies have my heart strapped in for the long haul.

Through Shaded Eyes (TSE) is the brainchild of Tokelo Motsepe. A retail buyer and digital strategist with an addiction to blogging, this blog is a platform for my style, life and love for fashion to be shared. What started as an escape from the hustle and bustle of the world, has now become a place to let out my passion for fashion & writing, in-between time spent at work, traveling, or doing everything else life throws at me… it has become a form of expression and I hope it can inspire and encourage you to also share!
