    I agree with most of the College Candy basics except the pumps vs. flats. Apparently they have never been to a large college campus! I have realized that I have a supreme lack of really comfortable/supportive flats. I also have extremely sensitive feet, so I definitely think it is more reasonable to spend the money on a really good pair of go-with-everything/cute/comfortable flats than a pair of heels you'll wear maybe once a month.
