Ugh with these fashions! I'm so over it! I'm over floral print! I HATE tribal print! Who cares about a body con and my black and white obsession was over before everyone else's even started. If you don't believe me, just (watch. WHOO! Sorry guys, I couldn't resist lol) go back a few post and you will see, I was on black and white ("monochrome" as the "fashionable" calls it.) overload! As a fatshionista I know first hand that we (plus size) are the last to get the trends. So while, it may be new to us, its outdated in straight sizes and on the runway. Personally, I could care less about being trendy. I despise looking like everyone else. I just wear what I like, "in style" or not. But one thing I can't deny is a bangin' shoe! No mater what size you are, you can always wear the hottest in footwear.
Here are the hottest styles for Spring/Summer 2013. This list is compiled of my favorite brands in footwear. They are just my personal preferences. I find that being heavier, I have to invest in my shoes for a better fit/comfort/durability. Use these styles as inspiration and find a shoe that fits your personal style/budget.
This is by far my favorite trend! I will definitely have a couple pairs of metallics in my closet. From a formal outing to dinner with the girls, this will be a summer staple for sure. I have seen metallics on the red carpet and all of the celebs are rocking this trend. This trend is a must have!

Kitten heels are making a comeback this year. These are not your grandmother's heels. The once "frowned upon" heel is now chic, sophisticated, and updated. Whether it's the classic stiletto or the chunky square heel, you will be seeing a lot of this style.

This classic design is here to stay. Pointy toe heels are one word, SEXY! But they are not for the faint of hearts. You know what they say, "beauty is pain" and that statement holds true when describing the comfort level of these shoes. The avid heel addict would admit that a pointy toe, high heel is a "valet shoe" (meant to be seen while sitting.. not standing or walking lol) I would suggest sizing up for extra room in the toe box.
Think like a Man

Menswear have made it to women's footwear. This is a super cute style that can be dressed up or dressed down. The styling possibilities are endless!
The trasluant trend has come a long way from the "jellybeans" we used to wear. This is definatly a high fashion trend that has been all over the runway. Trendy divas, this one's for you.
