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!)

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!

This morning, in my inbox, I had a lovely email from Shop It To Me. I was very pleased to find that all these shoes and more were on sale from Steve Madden. What a great morning! I hadn’t been to Steve Madden for a while so I headed over to their site and wow… they have a ton of great shoes. What’s your best Steve Madden shoe find?

Victoria Beckham’s gravity defying shoes

November 7, 2008

I’m not sure what to make of Victoria Beckham in these Antonio Berardi gravity defying boots that she showed off in Macy’s Herald Square. The practical part of me says they are totally unpractical and one one never really ever wear them, plus they must be a pain to take off.

The fashion side of me says, wow, interesting. I am speechless.

heels heels heels….

One word: OUCH!

Ahh, shoes!

April 25, 2008

I just bought an awesome wedged brown leather heel, with a slingback strap from Navid o Nadia. I went online to find other shoes by this company because they are really comfortable and I found this pair. AHHH, on sale for $19.95 from $60 bucks. I’m not going to tell you where but I’m sure you can find them. What color do you like best?

If you had all the money in the world…..

April 24, 2008

… what would you do? Ok, so I don’t mean all the money in the world.. but maybe 20 million. Hmm.. I often think that I’d live my life pretty much the same way, but I wouldn’t be forced to buy the small coffee instead of the large, or hem my own pants, just to realize they come undone 3 weeks later.

I mean, don’t get me wrong… I love to shop, but I really can’t afford much right now. I would love a pair of Manolo Blahniks, but truth be told, I’d probably feel awkward and selfish wearing such a high priced shoe… that really can’t be THAT much better than the $50 shoes that I bought 5 years ago on sale at Steve Madden, is it?

A girl can look, right? I just love those Christian Louboutin shoes also!!! So fancy!! Yup, I guess I’m just a normal city girl.

Ever heard of Top Shop?

April 15, 2008

Top Shop is a really cute, affordable and trendy store. Unfortunately, you won’t be stepping foot into one of these unless you visit the U.K. anytime soon. Everytime I used to go visit family in London, I’d head down to Piccadilly Circus and check out the latest fashions at Top Shop, like these adorable shoes!!! Anyone live in London and want to mail me a pair? Size 6!!!
