I’m currently stranded in the third world where signs of seasons are as clear as mud, and therefore my only way of experiencing the transitions of seasons is to live vicariously through real-time update that is Instagram. That might sound quite melodramatic and pathetic, but it’s the cold damn truth. Based on what is documented on an hourly basis there, spring is in full swing on the other side of the world. Supposed that I weren’t stuck in this bottomless abyss of overpopulation and pollution and had the financial wherewithal to do what other first-world fashion lovers are meant to do at this time of the year, I’d do a roundup of spring shoes wish-list and then spend my hard-earned money from brand collaborations, affiliated advertising or appearance fees on one or several pairs. Then, I’d sashay down the streets and have them pictured for a blog post. Only in the utopian world of fashion bloggers. HAHA. Below are the most swoon-worthy kicks for spring.
