"Look at this guy...shoes..." - Dane Cook
If you don't know who Dane Cook is (and you're not easily offended), you should Google some of his stand-up comedy clips. Just sayin'.

This week's topic is much more light-hearted than some of the previous questions. Yay fun!
1.What is your go-to pair of shoes?
I would have to say my black Mary Janes from Target. Sometimes at work I have errands to run at the main medical plaza and since our office is a couple of blocks away, it requires some walking and those heels are enormously comfortable! Then there's the fact that most of my clothes are black-based (rather than brown or navy) so those shoes go with most everything.
2. What goes into your shoe buying decisions?
A lot of the time I've been focused on whether or not they meet dress code. Now that we have permission to wear some open-toe shoes around our little office, that's less of a concern (I just have to keep some closed-toe shoes at my desk for quick changes if we have meetings or visitors). I do try to look for heels most of the time, ones that are comfortable and have some kind of flair to them (plain pumps are not my cup of tea) such as a texture or bow or something. I refuse to wear shoes that are especially uncomfortable. Sure, some heels aren't that comfy simply due to the nature of wearing heels, but I won't wear shoes that are truly painful. Fashion should be fun, not torture.
3. The majority of the shoes in your closet are what color?
Some form of black. I have gray, silver, zebra flats, black/gray leopard flats, tweed, and plain black.
4. When it comes to designer shoes what are your favorite brands and why?
Er...I'm not a "designer" kind of girl. (Fashion Blogger: FAIL) I'm really not familiar with designers (for the most part) and don't have any type of preference. I look for shoes mostly at Target and Payless, and have recently branched into DSW and Beall's. I look for the style I want, comfort level, and the price I need. Otherwise, I don't really care what the label says.
5. If price wasn’t an issue, you’d own which shoe?
Okay so forget everything I just said in number four. Heh. If price wasn't an issue, I'd want some yellow Christian Louboutin pumps like these. Please and amen. Honestly I just really want more brightly colored pumps, specifically yellow, less specifically pink, turquoise, green, orange...(such lofty goals, I know...)
What do YOU think? What are some shoes that every girl should have in her closet?
