Dressing up your shoes – in spats

Yes thats right, I’m putting it out there that a good way to dress up shoes would be by wearing spats, a la Scrooge McDuck. I’ve got two pairs of shoes that I wear constantly, the silver winklepicker boots mentioned in previous posts, and a pair of plain black winklepicker boots. Now sometimes the silver boots can be a bit overpowering depending on how much I want to dress up, while the black boots can be a bit plain. I need something that falls in the middle, something a bit more interesting than plain black boots but less full on than silver boots. So I figured that spats could be a way to do that. And this is a fashion statement that hasn’t even be done yet, its not an emerging trend (unless somehow I bring it in, but that’s unlikely), and isn’t a style that is going to become stale anytime soon because as I said it’s not a trend at all. I’m planning to buy a pair soon, I’ll make sure to post pictures, thoughts and reactions when I get them. You saw it here first!

    This is an awesome idea. Where can one get spats though?
