According to Chictopia, here are the top 5 shoes to thrift…lets see what we can find on Artfire

I always find it interesting to see what the people at Chictopia are seeing as up and coming and current trends.  Since the site is centered around street style all over the world I feel that they would be the place to find out this information. I was excited today when I spotted a vintage focused article in their newsletter and had to explore their findings on Artfire.  The Chictopia article offers 5 shoes that are universal styles that are usually found in thrift stores to help the ladies out there that dream of the designer shoe, but only have a minimal budget.  These aren’t bad options to choose from: 1.  Oxfords/Loafers:  This style has recently become trendy in the last five years.  But, has been around forever.  I’d say you can get away with a style like this for a while.  It’s always exciting to find something unique and the pair I found on Artfire are just that!

2.  Mod Ankle Boots: I think the suede western boot sounds the most fun out of all the styles that Chictopia recommended and I like the idea of just wearing it with a jeans and a tee and letting the boots do the talking.  I couldn’t find suede cowboy boots, but thought that fringe cowboy boots would be so on trend right now:)  As you can see you work with what you can find as well:) Fringe Western Boot, $125 3.  Knee High Boots: High or low heel works and is a staple in any girls wardrobe. The lace up the back of the style I found make these boots soo amazing!  Such a great find! Vintage Boots Knee High Leather Excellent Condition Back Laceup Re Enactor SCA Theatre LARP Steam Punk Retro BoHo, $54.69 4.  Classic Pumps: There are always exciting styles to find for pumps in a  thrift store like none you’ll find in the store.  Let me just share first of all that this is the first style that I’ve found 2 pages of results for pumps.  Just something to consider.  This style is the easiest to find in vintage for sure.  The style I found reminds me of Roger Vivier…but, with a twist.

5.  Platforms: They say all from 60’s to 90’s just have fun trying them all out…These remind me of something that Miu Miu or Marc Jacobs would design.
