It’s that time of the year. Spring is here and you’re off to the races! Party that is! If you have a line up of parties and spring events to attend and you’re on budget- but do not want to compromise your fashion in public or wear the same thing you wore last year, then keep reading. Be realistic and be smart this season because it’s not just your outfit you’ll be spending money on.
Find a dress that suit your style and fit, then find the right shoes to pair it with. Here are different styles of trending shoes that you can buy at FSW Shoes BELOW $70.
The Elegant Floral Look
Try nude or taupe heel, it matches well with natural and light coloured dresses. Dress it up with smaller jewellery and try a feathered hair pin rather than a full fascinator- maintaining a minimal approach but with the hint of elegance.
*note: Wearing nude/tan heels will make your legs look longer with a short dress.

According to the latest fashion in Melbourne, plenty of white dresses walked the runway this SS2015, particularly short white dresses.
Short white dresses are great for this time around, keeping the look fresh for spring. Add some texture on the white dress and keep it short than long. Pair your outfit with a pair of champagne coloured heels with a nice tiny ankle strap with bit of glitter on your shoes to give it some ‘bling’.
