Splurge vs. Steal: The Top 10 Shoes Trends for Spring 2015

If you want to update your wardrobe with the latest trends, I always think accessories are the best place to start. After all, if you can only buy one item (or a few), shouldn't it be something you can really get some mileage out of? If you wore the same dress 3-4 days a week, your friends might stage an intervention, but your shoes? No one even bats an eye at that. So I say love them, buy them, and style them as many ways you can. And while we're looking toward the Spring season, there are so many shoe trends on my radar right now. Invest in the designer or score the look for less!
