Without starting with all that talk about how important shoes and handbags are and what good investments one can make with them, because you will wear them for ages and how they will always be classics, i will deny it straight forward. Actually there are no good investments with designer shoes.
No shoe can be worth 900$. I know it. It does not make any sense. Not to humankind.
Still, though. I do not write this stuff to be rational or reasonable.
The only reasonable thing is, buying them when they’re on sale.
Which is officially not the case right now, buuuut some shops started, so why wait and why talk more, just look at what i found. All under 500$.

We are waiting for it the whole year. Since i am living in the northern hemisphere, we approximately calculate somewhat like 2-3 good weeks of summer. Well real summer i mean. The rest is usually a moody cocktail of cloudy, rainy, but sometimes also shiny weather, which makes you loose all of your optimism concerning wearing those satin leather slides you just got on a discount, but were still too expensive to tell your mum.
Of course going on holiday exists, but seriously, how long are you going to stay at that pool? Since there is no „i love to travel“ on my bio, this means 1-2 weeks.
Long story short. Go buy some stuff you can wear in summer, but ALSO in colder times.
1. Such as: a good midi skirt. Its a skirt right? So its providing you with air between your legs. That should be enough. Otherwise just wear some jeans beneath it, to make it weather appropriate. Some examples will follow.
2. Slides, you can also wear with socks. This does not suit to every kind of slide or mule in my opinion, but to most of them. Clash the styles, use thick wintery socks for your embroidered Dries Van Noten mules, wear shiny nylon socks with classic Slippers.
3. Sleeveless Tops. Even turtlenecks are in fact. And hey they would look great with that midi skirt and mules you just bought.
Wear an off-shoulder longsleeve top beneath it, when you’re scared of goose bumps.Or even a thick turtleneck, whatever you wear, it will look cool.
