Amber Wilkerson of Every Once in a Style talks trends, style and date-night wear in today's Style File.

You're on a first date, what shoe do you wear? It really depends on where we are going but I would most likely wear a cute black leather bootie with a stacked heel. I'm short and always feel more confident in heels but they can look too dressy, or like you are trying too hard. A sleek bootie looks casual but still pulled together.

What's one fashion rule you always break? I think when it comes to fashion, the rules are made to be broken. Everyone is different and should make their own set of rules. I'm big on white year round, forget the Labor Day rule and I also like to mix my metals, gold, silver, rose gold, just layer 'em all together.

When it comes to shoes, how much is too much to pay? It depends on my budget at the time. I obviously have shoes that I lust after and think one day I'll splurge. Currently I don't spend much more than $250.

Who is your favorite shoe designer? Stuart Weitzman.

If you were a shoe, what shoe would you be? If I were a shoe, I would be Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandal in black. It's minimalist and classic but at the same time sassy and probably a tad overdressed wherever it goes.
