Introducing: Project Accessory

So who watched Project Accessory last week?

Following the Project Runway finale, Lifetime premiered this new show, all about creating accessories.

Obviously, this show peaked my interest.

Hosted by Molly Sims and mentor Eva Jeanbart-Lorenzotti, It was definitely missing some of the Project Runway charm, mainly Tim Gunn’s quirky support and Heidi Klum’s “Al Vida Zein.” But, it’s still new and needs to gain it’s own identity a bit. If it’s given the chance, of course. Alongside Molly Sims are judges Kenneth Cole and Ariel Foxman, and last week’s guest judge was Debra Messing. I was a bit surprised at some of the judging, and I’m thinking Kenneth Cole might be the voice of reason in the group. But, only time will tell.

On the bright side, it looks like next week, there’s some shoe-making involved! Can’t wait to see what they make.

Click here for last week’s episode, and check out the next episode at 10pm EST on Lifetime.

Fall Boots and Shoes from Old Navy

This weekend I headed over to Old Navy to check out all of their changes and improvements, and I must say, I was definitely impressed. The store itself was much easier to navigate, and I was happy to see them add quick change stations for those of us who don’t want to wait in those long fitting room lines. While browsing, I got to catch a glimpse of their Fall shoe selection, and found some nice shoes.

Check ’em out!

New Boots at Charlotte Russe

Browsing through the Charlotte Russe website and found some interesting boots. Some I like, some, I could live without.

Here’s some of the highlights:

The best thing being their deal for all shoes:

Buy One, Get One for $15.50

Sueded Thigh-High Wedge Boot

$45.50

Super cute faux suede wedge thigh-high boots.

Belted Low-Heel Riding Boot

$45.50

Faux Leather, 16″ Tall.

Cuffed Faux-Suede Heel Boot

$40.00

Very cute ruched boot, especially loving the blue!

Tall Topstitch Riding Boot

$42.50

Cute faux-leather riding boot with buckle accents.

Flat Mid-Calf Slouch Boot

$30.00

A great deal on what’s quickly becoming a staple in everyone’s boot collection.

And, last but not least, the monstrosity of the Charlotte Russe boot collection:

Belt-Wrap Sueded Heel Boot

$40.00

I have to be honest, I wouldn’t wear these if someone gave them to me for free. There’s just so many buckles and accents. Too overdone. Sadly, this is on my WORST list. Sorry Charlotte Russe, I guess you can’t win them all…

Happy New Year, Shoe Lovers!

Well, I’m back! Turns out I’ve got a whole lot of viewers, and I just can’t let you guys down! So prepare to see lots more shoes for not a lot of money.

Recent Purchase from Bakers

Yesterday I took a trip to the mall, and of course had to stop by Bakers. I absolutely love their shoes, but normally don’t buy any because they’re a bit above my price range. On my way out, I walked past the clearance section and found a pair of shoes I’ve had my eye on for quite some time.
