Kuzak's Closet

Dear Kuzak’s Closet-

I am in need of some new shoes.  What are you top 3 picks?  Hint–I desperately need a pair of black flats but have not found the right pair yet. Help!

P.S.-I love your fashion posts!

Thanks again!

Dear Midwest Mom,

Thank you so much for writing in!  Instead of sharing my top 3 picks I thought I would give you some great options in three categories of shoes that every girl should have in their closet.  I used a site called Polyvore to collect my favorites and all of the options are between $25-$100 per pair.


First I started with the black flats that you are looking for.  I would suggest having at least two pairs in your collection, one pair that is very classic and simple and another pair with some embellishments or design.  I really love the patent Nine West flats with the little bow and the Cole Haan pair in the top left corner are super comfy, I’ve tried them on myself.

Black Flats

Next you need neutral flats that will go with all of your colorful tops and prints.  I suggest a nude, silver, or gold depending on your style.  I love the nude pair with the gold toe, so cute for work or to dress up dark jeans.  I also want to order the DKNY pair on the bottom left ASAP, I love the detail on the toe!

Neutral Flats

And last you need FUN shoes that will make all of your basic tops and bottoms pop.  I am huge fan of adding color with flats, a little stripe or floral pattern goes a long way.  All of these options would look nice with slacks and skirts to work and jeans and basic tees on the weekends.

Fun Flats
I hope this advice helps!  If there is a pair that you love you can click on the shoe and it will show you where you can buy them.  Each pair is under $100 so have fun shopping!
