I only collect two things: shoes and good times. Living in cramped New York City quarters, you don’t have room for much else. I was so excited when ALDO asked me to be a part of their #PerfectPair campaign for the holidays, perfectly pairing me with my West Coast gal Kim Pesch.
ALDO has been a staple-maker for my wardrobe since middle school. I remember when they opened their first store at my local mall and it was like entering the best walk-in shoe closet ever. I may have cried… who knows. What I do know is that I was in love right then and there. ALDO has literally hundreds of trendy and classic styles to fit any personality or budget. As part of my #PerfectPair duties, I was asked to create three distinct looks around some of my favorite ALDO styles.
My first look is what we’ve dubbed “House Party.” This look is all about being ‘dressed down dressy’… it’s casual but still has an edge to it. These black boots are so comfortable, which means impromptu dance parties are pain-free. Honestly, every guy should own one really versatile pair of black boots… Haven’t found yours yet? Now you have.
Head on over to the #PerfectPair microsite to check out some more of my picks and sneak peek what ALDO has got coming to a store near you!
