I've always contended that a lady can never own too many shoes. They can literally take an outfit from "meh" to "Wow! I love your style" in mere seconds. And get this: a study released by the University of Kansas in June found that the shoes you wear actually reflect your personality.
In fact, according to the study, you can judge 90 percent of a stranger's personal characteristics simply by checking out their kicks. Characteristics like your political affiliation, emotional traits, age and even annual income. Kooky, huh?
Interesting facts aside, shoes are just plain fun to buy, own and wear. Today I'm highlighting pumps that are on trend for fall 2012. Each pair is under $50 for your wallet's maximum pleasure. Featured at top left is Michael Antonio's Louie Faux Suede Closed Pump ($49) in black and blue. FYI - Black and blue is one of the season's hottest color combos.
