Affordable Fashion -- Shoes and Purses
Our trip to affordable fashion world in Toronto continues with shoes and purses. There are so many nice shoe stores out there, with such an elegant and stylish offer! All you have to do to find them and style up, is to go to your nearest mall.
This is my favorite shoe store. Every time I go there, I get so excited to see so many nice shoes and purses, and all them at good prices! Last time when I went to Aldo for shoe shopping, I bought a nice pair of red flats, for only $23; and a gorgeous blue clutch for an upcoming party, for only $25.
This is my favorite place to buy stilettos. Almost all my stilettos are from Spring! I discovered this shop for the first time about 3 years ago, when I bought from there a gorgeous pair of black stilettos for only $40, perfect for an evening outfit. Since then, I also bought from Spring a pair of purple stilettos, a pair of white stiletto sandals, a pair of black stiletto boots, but also a pair of black heelless shoes, for more comfort. All the prices were in the same range, not to mention that you can buy lots of great shoes from this store at really low prices during sale season.
THE SHOE COMPANY
The Shoe Company is the perfect place to go shoe shopping by brand. It’s the place where some of the most popular brands are gathered. If you want designer shoes but can’t really afford designer prices, The Shoe Company is the right place for you. You can find in there Adidas, Anne Klein, BCBG, Blowfish, Cause & Effect, Columbia, Converse, David Dixon, DKNY, Gossip, Guess, Kenneth Cole, Lacoste, Steve Madden, Nike, Nine West, Point Zero, Puma, Reebok, The North Face, to mention just a few of them. Last time when I went shoe shopping at The Shoe Company, I selected some comfortable shoes – a pair of Steve Madden fuschia flats, a pair of Cause & Effect black flats, a pair of Gossip pink sandals and a pair of Blowfish black flip-flops. There is no need to mention that the prices for each of them were very attractive.
Steve Madden, $89.95
David Dixon, $125
Kenneth Cole, $109.99
Nine West, $49.99

PAYLESS SHOE SOURCE
The least expensive shoe store chain is no doubt Payless Shoe Source, as the title itself suggests. This was the first store where I started shoe shopping 4 years ago, when I first moved to Toronto. And I bought here some really nice shoes, both casual and occasion.
