The Choo Investment

Jimmy Choo Abel pumps

It is with much excitement that I introduce the newest member of the BethAnimalPrint shoe closet. Not only are they a new addition, but they are my first pair of Jimmy Choos and one of my first investment pieces (here is my first).

I’ve thought about buying these for two years. Yep, you read that right… TWO YEARS.  I love luxury items, but rarely buy them unless they are 1)  extremely versatile (hello, black pumps!) or 2) on sale/purchased second-hand. Even the Louboutins I wore on my wedding day were pre-loved (see them in the Blogger Love Stories series by Shabby Loves Chic.)

Jimmy Choos as timeless as these are unlikely to go on sale, and even more unlikely to pop up on Poshmark.  They are an asset that can be worn whether I’m headed to work, date night, dinner parties, conferences, church…you get the picture. It was a sizable investment for me, but as The Banker would say, one which will yield a high return.

Would you pull the trigger on luxury shoes?

    Ummmm those little babies are gorgeous!! Woohoo for new shoes, you lucky lady!! I never wear heels anymore (stay at home moms rarely have reason LOL), so my investment shoes are always flats. How lame am I! :-(

    Great choice! I have a few investment pieces and they are all classics as well. I’d never spend a lot on trendy things. I change my mind too much.

    These are beautiful! I very much approve of this new addition to your closet. I did pull the trigger on some Choos but unfortunately, they’re not half as versatile as these beauties. They were my “wedding Choos” (think lots of sparkle), so they’re not exactly a wear-around-the-office or even date-night pair, but they make an appearance every anniversary! And they’re SO comfy! Choos are the comfiest! xo

    Congratulations on your new baby! :) These shoes are a great investment and worth the two year wait. So I have a bday coming up and the hubs wants to buy me shoes or a bag. So I told him some designers I like and he looked on ShopStyle and was like, “Say what?” He was very surprised by the cost of designer shoes and bags, lol.
