Meet Vickie Laliotis, a fashionable female who loves to mix and match pieces and does it with flair, turning even the most unexpected pairings into oh-so chic ensembles.

Perhaps another thing to note about this chic blogger is her take on shoes. She believes in comfort and wearability first, which is not usually the case for most shoe lovers. In a way, she is one proof that you CAN look absolutely gorgeous without having to sacrifice those two.

5 Questions to Vickie Laliotis of “Adventures in Fashion”
Can you tell us a little about your blog and its focus?
I started Adventures In Fashion in 2009 as a creative outlet. I was working a less-than-inspiring job at the time, and blogging about fashion became my escape. I couldn’t believe how many like-minded people I connected with, and some even become close personal friends! I’ve narrowed my focus a lot since those early days, and now I mainly blog about my personal style. It’s unbelievable how fun and satisfying it is to document something as simple as daily outfits!

What kind of shoes do you like (boots, pumps, etc) and do you have a favorite pair?
Comfort is super important to me, so I’m a big fan of wearing flats. Even though I wear my share of heels, they have to be super comfy and wearable… My favourite footwear are either loafers or boots, and I tend to wear a lot of oxfords as well. My Forever 21 leopard print loafers were by far my favourite (and cheapest!) purchase this fall, with my black Michael Kors riding boots coming in at a close second… I’m all about the high-low range!

What shoes are you planning to buy next?
Michael Kors has a great studded holiday boot coming out that has my name on it, and every time I pop into Zara my heart pitter patters over their incredible heel selection… I might have to break down and buy a new pair (and some insoles!) for New Years.
If we were to take a look at all your shoes, what do you think will it say about you?
If my shoes could talk, I think they would say that I like to play with colour and shape but that I pride comfort… I own more flats than I can count!
5. When it comes to shoes, what advice can you give our readers?
I think a lot of girls get caught up in a certain “look,” sacrificing fit and comfort in order to look cute. Although trends are fun, I think it’s important to focus on comfort and wearability above all else… No one wants to watch a girl teetering awkwardly on a pair of heels, so only buy shoes you can actually walk in, ladies!
