I Fell in Love with Steve Madden at Goodwill

The transition from summer to fall is always a tough one. But these sassy Steve Madden shoes, found this week at a Manhattan Goodwill shop, would certainly help ease you into autumn in style.

This is the perfect fall shoe – a closed-toe, flat, oxford-style pair that looks equally suited to the classroom or the office, these darling shoes may be practical, but they still have plenty of panache. The rich cognac-colored and sweet scalloped detail takes the best from both masculine and feminine footwear styles, and you’ll be able to run around in them comfortably during the busy days of fall, all day long.

With feminine charm and a masculine edge, these pretty, practical, and totally polished shoes will carry you through day after day, no matter how much is on your plate this season.

Lovely in lavender…or any other color. The buttery brown leather these shoes are made of is totally classic, and will look divine with a multitude of much-loved wardrobe pieces. And just because they’re brown doesn’t mean it’s impossible to wear them with all of that black you have stashed in your closet. Both are neutral hues, and the warm, reddish tint to the leather is actually a nice contrast and complement to starker black pieces. Here, I’ve chosen to pair my find with a comfy pair of pants in a soft lavender color, with a bolder top in a black-and-white print. The simple cuts of these items, as well as the varying colors and textures in this outfit, make these ideal pieces with which to show off these adorable shoes, with their own elements of contradictory masculine and feminine styles. But what’s wonderful about a pair of totally sensible but stylish shoes like these is that they’ll look fantastic with anything you pair them with – try some lace-up oxfords like these with a flowing, patterned skirt and simple tee-shirt, or with a pair of looser-fitting trousers in a lighter, dressier fabric and a brightly colored silk blouse.

The possibilities are truly endless with a pair of timelessly chic leather flats like the pair I found at a nearby Goodwill shop this week. Try dressing them up or down, with everything from elegant work wear to casual everyday looks, like the colored jeans and black-and-white sweater pictured here.
