Louboutins . Worth the red sole?

October 18, 2010

It wasn’t until about 3 years about that I really started to notice the Christin Louboutin trend. Yes, I agree that these are elegant and probably very comfortable shoes (I can only make a guess since I don’t own any), but is the red sole really worth the price tag? These pastel pumps are pretty darn cute… and knowing they come with the brand name makes them just that much better. Though, if I did get a pair of Loubs, you bet they’d be the patent leather black Very Prive. One day…. just one day….

The Ultimate Heel

September 16, 2010

Need a classic heel to wear to work? On a date? To a wedding? This is the perfect elegant heel.. and quite affordable too. What’s great about this shoe is the high backs that give a classic, unique touch to the heel. The color also is nude enough to not take away from an outfit, yet it will go with any color. That’s why is a great staple shoe for many occasions. And get this.. it’s under $100 from Aldo!

Western Inspired Boots in the 21st Century. Love 'em.

August 17, 2010

I have to say that I am thoroughly obsessed with this boot. I spotted them in Nordstrom and it was if a lightbulb went off in my head and I had to get them. What I really love about these boots is the lace detail. It gives the old timey – Western look, but they’re still casual enough to wear to work. And the heel is great. They are so comfy. I didn’t get them because once I saw the price tag of over $200, I started thinking of all the stuff that I could buy with $200. Like car registration. Anyway, I am still pining for these shoes. Maybe they’ll be a birthday present to myself? My birthday is on Saturday…. hmm…

ShoeDazzle by Kim Kardashian

May 3, 2010

If you’re a shoe-holic and can’t get enough heels, boots, flats, sandals, then you may just need to join Kim Kardashian’s ShoeDazzle. Usually I wouldn’t endorse anything by her and her sisters, but this is actually a pretty good deal. You sign up for $39.95 per month (think of it like a magazine subscription) and are guaranteed a selection of shoes to fit your style handpicked by one of the 5 stylists. If you don’t like any, you can get a new batch to choose from or skip that month without being charged. The stylists pick your style based on a questionnaire that you fill out. If you do like one of the shoes suggested by them and you pick it, you score ’em for only 39.95 including shipping! What a deal!

Anyone out there who’s tried ShoeDazzle and have some reviews? Leave them in the comment section. Thanks!

Is the shoe really worth the name?

April 29, 2010

That is the million dollar question tonight. Is the shoe really worth the name? Hmmm… I can’t decide, or else I wouldn’t be posing this question. Take, for example the classic black peep toe – Would you take the ‘Loubs or the generic pair (Members Only)?

So you probably noticed the differences already. The Christian Louboutin “Very Prive” heels have the elegant curve on the side, the hidden platform and the signature red sole. But is it worth the $795? Verses the other brand for $70?

Tell me what you think! Post your answers in the comments!

Sequined Glamourous Stilettos

January 27, 2010

I absolutely LOVE these shoes (Litten by Aldo). They are the quintessential “going out” heel.. that I must have. They were $80 just a few days ago and now they’re down to $40. Wow, Aldo… you are making this really hard for me to not just take out my credit card and purchase these sparkling stilettos RIGHT NOW!

Does the heel really matter?

January 25, 2010

How much does a heel influence the kind of shoe that you buy? Do you only buy wedges? Stilettos? Flats? I am having a tough time deciding if I like the heel. No actually, I like them, but I have friends that hate both of these heels. What do you think? These are super comfy, but are they terrible looking?

Chained To Boots… Ankle Boots, that is!

January 24, 2010

I know I have been slightly obsessive about posting boots lately. It’s pretty much my latest obsession – yeah. Shoes. I feel like I’ve turned into Carrie Bradshaw or something. I’d actually rather prefer a nice pair of heels or boots than a fancy dinner. And these are my latest craze… they are on sale, of course. But, here’s to hoping they’ll go on sale even more.

They are called Melokonian by Aldo.

$44 Motorcycle Boots!

January 8, 2010


I am a big fan of these motorcycle-esque boots. No, they’re not girly at all, yet they still have a bit of a heel. The buckles are awesome – in my opinion. And the best price is they’re only $44 bucks. Hmm.. too good to be true? Maybe, because I’m pretty sure they’re not made of leather, and I’m kind of a snob when it comes to pleather boots. But these are a pretty darn good bargain, if you can get past that. Sold at DELias!

Dillard’s Has Some Great Shoes!

January 4, 2010

The first time I ever visited my boyfriend’s family in Missouri, I headed to a Dillard’s store. Now for many of you, Dillard’s is nothing special. For me, it was like heaven! I’d never been in one before and I found one of my favorite shoe brands to date: Antonio Melani! I own a few pairs of them (because I keep heading back everytime I visit.) On my last trip, I fell in love with these beauties! P.S. If you keep checking the Dillards website, these shoes always go on sale. The boots below went from $169 to $99 in only a week! Score!

Collette:

This shoe is so fun! I love the pattern, yet the flat style is easy on your feet if you have to walk around all day. Great to dress up some jeans and a T or to wear with a little black dress!

Magy:

The Magy is suprisingly comfortable even with the slight heel. Very professional looking for work or play and the emblem on the toe gives it a fun flare.

Pyper:

These slouchy leather boots really pull together an outfit. It comes in 3 colors, beige, black and brown. I love the beige – it goes with an array of outfits! (Plus I already own black and brown boots!)

H&M Holiday Sale!

December 9, 2009

I love H&M because their clothes are so affordable and I am so stoked that they have a Holiday Sale with tons of new clothing and accessories perfect for Holiday parties. Just let me warn you, if you go to their site, and click on Holiday, it’s a mess. It’s so hard to look through their stuff with clothing and shoes flying everywhere you move your mouse, so I do suggest hitting up a store.

However, I did manage to find these on the site and man… I need them… now!

1. Golden Holiday Shoes

For $14.95, you really can’t beat this price. Plus these shoes are the shiznit! Even if you only wear them once!

2. Fabulous Cardigan

$34.95. For Holiday parties and regular parties, you’ll definitely get good use out of this cardigan. The high neck will keep you extra warm and the cable pattern adds the perfect amount of detail without looking too overdone. Hot damn!

Rain Boots Are A Must Have

December 4, 2009

Just like the title suggests, rain boots are a must have. Whether you live in CA where it rains about 20 times a year or Seattle where it rains every other day, you gotta get yourself a pair of rain boots. Why? Well, rainboots aren’t JUST for the rain. Mary Kate Olsen wears them when she goes to Starbusks. And Rachel Bilson owns a pair for running errands. I like to wear mine when I’m gardening after a rainy day, when I go to the snow (paired with some thick socks) or just because.

If you don’t want to splurge on the celeb-must-have Wellington Hunter boots (though Wellie’s are so cute), then you should check out the awesome selection at Target for …. $24.99! This is perfect for those of you who live in Cali and may not be venturing out in the rain anytime soon.

I Heart Jeweled Heart Flats

November 4, 2009

Picture 1These flats by YesStyle are too adorable not to have and something that I am definitely adding to my wish list. Why must you have them now? Well that’s an easy question.

  • Closed Toed – Work appropriate
  • Flat Shoe – Comfortable to wear all day long
  • Sequined – Dressy for parties or dress up jeans and a T-shirt
  • Brown Leather – Classic and good quality

A versatile shoe like this always lasts a long time! It also comes in 2 other colors (black and wine).

Christian Louboutin Pink Glittery Goddess Shoes

October 28, 2009

If Christian Louboutin, Dorothy and Barbie all had a magical shoe child, this is exactly what it would look like. It’s Christian Louboutin’s Declic Glitter Pumps are they are beautiful, magical and everything in between. Not sure I can justify the $675 price tag, but one day I will have these – you’ll see. They are completely and utterly over-the-top and 250% girly but that are fabulous and they are me.

Corso Como “Val”- New Favorite Shoe!

October 27, 2009

shoes_iaec1173209

I went shopping this weekend and lo and behold! I spotted these beauties! Corso Como “Val” heels. They are super cute with the silver snakeskin and leopard print. Now usually I don’t go for mixed animal print, but I could not resist these. Fashionable, stylish and flirty. They make a great shoe to dress it up at work or to go out in, not to mention the comfortability factor. And if you act quick, you can get them for 30% off at Bloomies! Score!

What do you think of them?

Race For The Cure! Pink Running Shoes

October 23, 2009

Though, this month is almost over, let’s not forget that it’s Breast Cancer Awareness month! Not only am I a huge supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness and the search for the cure, I love pink. Don’t believe me? Check out the Lindsey Chen Loves Pink video. Anyway, back to the point. If you are in need of running shoes, these are definitely ones that you should have! They are super cute and support Breast Cancer Awareness. I am actually thinking about buying these as having alternate training shoes for when i run the Rock n’ Roll Marathon! Also, why not add some cute pink clothing to go with it? After all, who wouldn’t want to work out in style?

Best Shoe For Running A Marathon! – Asics Kayano 15

October 20, 2009

I just purchased the pair of shoes that I’m going to be running the Las Vegas Rock N’ Roll 1/2 Marathon (13.1 miles) in. Asics – Kayano 15 – in Pink (in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month!) I am super stoked because the shoes are cute and not only very lightweight and comfortable. I ran 5 miles with them this morning – no problem!

Part of the main reason why I bought these is because my feet slighly turn into the arches (I am pronate) so these provide extra support. Also, because of the gel soles, they are really easy on the knees and joints. It’s not worth screwing up your knees. I love these shoes and if you are running a marathon, half marathon or even 10/5k, then I urge you to check them out!
