Shoe and Handbag Intervention

Oprah teamed up with 3 professional Fashionistas for a Shoe and Handbag intervention on her show yesterday and here is what you need to know!

Shoe 411

  • Keep Animal Prints Contemporary, they're classic and go with everything

  • A pointed toe slims the foot

  • Darker colors make your foot look slimmer

  • Shoe boots or booties make the leg look longer (just make sure they hit at ankle or below)

  • Match darker clothing to dark shoes to elongate the leg

  • Tall boots make your legs look longer

  • Peep toe shoes hide foot flaws aka ugly toes

The 6 pairs of Shoes everyone needs

  • Little Black Pump

  • Comfortable flat that works for work and weekend

  • Show stopping gorgeous show

  • Cute sleek sneaker

  • Tall Boot- Heel or Flat

  • All weather boot

Handbag 411

  • Multiple bags are a violation

  • Patterns for everyday use are a violation

  • Novelty bags for every day use are a violation

  • Utilitarian Backpacks, again, violation

  • Your bag should contrast your body shape

Hottest Boots of the Season

  • Over the Knee Boot-Make sure to where them in a Flat, a heel cries Pretty Woman

  • Boot with Buckles-adds edge

  • Slouchy Boot

  • Peep toe lace up
