Ankles In Straps | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Girl-Pink-Green-1aWelcome to a new episode of Friday Fashion.
The rage of this fall 2016 are the ankle strap shoes. I agree they are cute, adorable and everyone loves them in any versions, totally flat, or with low square heels or even stiletto type. Some shoe models come in rounded toes and some in pointed toes, some have the straps going up the calves as Romans’ slave shoes and some stop around the ankles.

I am so tempted to get a pair this year, but knowing what to do and what not to do with my body, I don’t think I will ever have a pair in my collection. You see, I am a walker, my calves have become the same as a soccer player: large, muscular and hard as a rock. I don’t mind the shape at all, but this type of legs requires shoes that elongate and visually make them slender. The straps would cut the ankles and chop the legs making them appear even larger and squatted like a prosciutto leg.

That’s exactly the sort of things women should know when getting dressed. The secret of making fashion work for us is to emphasize parts of the body that are beautiful and hide certain others that are not so perfect. Doing this anyone would feel comfortable in her own body and self-esteem would be certainly higher.

The legs of the models in my photos look very nice with strap shoes because they are very slim, not everyone out there has those types of legs. Be aware.

Keep pairing that powdery blue for added feminine mystery. Those tassels are so playful. Ciao,
