Surprising New Looks at Gap

I’m so surprised by what I’m seeing at Gap’s website. They now have Design Editions for shoes, and these are very different from the simple Gap style. Now, these are still out of my price range, but I think they’re worth seeing. Take a look…

Suede Wedge Gladiator

$89.50

Design Editions Peep-toe Wedge Booties

Originally $195, ON SALE FOR $169.99

 

Design Editions Lace-up Boots

Originally $195, ON SALE FOR $169.99

 

Kind of surprising for Gap, huh?

Do You ShoeDazzle?

So I just found out about ShoeDazzle at work yesterday. Basically, you subscribe through their website and describe your style to them. It costs $40 a month and they send you a pair of shoes each month TO KEEP according to your specifications. If you don’t see any shoes you like, you can skip a month and get two for the following month. I’m just now about to try it out, so I’ll be sure to update when I get my first pair!

Here’s the website:

http://www.shoedazzle.com/

These are some of the shoes you can get. All for $40!

What are your thoughts?

FREAKIN FIERCE SHOES FROM CHRISTIAN SIRIANO!

Anyone who is a fan of Project Runway knows exactly what I’m talking about with this post! Even if you weren’t too happy about Christian Siriano becoming the winner of season 4 (personally I wanted Jillian to win) you have to admit that Christian was indeed ‘fierce.’ And now, his line of shoes for Payless are finally being debuted for all of us to see, and they are exactly what he always says: FIERCE!

Take a look

(thanks to NYMag for the pics!)

sirianoshoes

Yes…these babies are for PAYLESS. I couldn’t believe it either, and let me tell you I will be buying some of these when they hit the stores. Apparently Christian’s line will be in the $25-$45 range which is CRAZY AFFORDABLE for us not-so-rich people!!!

This line is inspired by the ancient Egyptians, and the blue print is actually supposed to resemble heiroglyphics. I have to admit I absolutely love those blue shoes too!!! So keep an eye on these, as they will be out this coming fall!!!!

What’s New at Bakers

There are some interesting new shoes on the Bakers website, some of which very closely resemble much more expensive designer brands, so I thought they were definitely worth mentioning! As you know this website is all about being on a fashion budget!!

PAXTON A, Bakers

PAXTON A, Bakers

PAXTON A, Bakers,$39.99

I love the heel height on this with the hidden platform, and that print is great–it doesn’t scream animal print, it just smoothly states it. I’m also enjoying the round toe as it makes it a more approachable shoe.

4 1/2″ heel. Material/Fur.

CAYLEE, Bakers

CAYLEE, Bakers

CAYLEE, Bakers, $79.95

As you may know I’m still not at all tired of the gladiator-inspired platform sandals, and the blues on this shoe make it really intriguing. Also loving the zipper.

4 1/4″ heel. Material/Snake Leather.

RUFFLES, Bakers

RUFFLES, Bakers

RUFFLES, Bakers, ON SALE FOR $69.99 (originally $79.95)

This looks oddly familiar!! With the exception of the color, this shoe is pretty much the same as the one by L.A.M.B. (which is known for its yellow color.) This is a much cheaper option, and who can complain about that!! The ruffles have a nice, almost aquatic flair, and it also has a back zip closure.

4 1/2″ heel. Material/Faux Leather.

MOROCCO, Bakers

MOROCCO, Bakers

MOROCCO, Bakers, $59.95

The title is Oh So Appropriate!! This gladiator sandal has so much detailing and embellishments, what’s not to love!?

By Dollhouse.

CHLEO, Bakers

CHLEO, Bakers

CHLEO, Bakers, $79.95

Another very similar style to one of L.A.M.B.’s shoes, this peep toe bootie has enough straps to keep your foot quite secure, and make you look like a total bad ass in the mean time!

4 1/4″ heel. Material/Faux Leather.

CORI, Bakers

CORI, Bakers

CORI, Bakers, $89.95

For some reason the side of the vamp reminds me of sun rays and makes me think of a Mayan temple. Not quite sure, but I love it just the same! This woven gladiator sandal has a lot of unique detailing which makes it a great buy!

4 1/4″ heel. Material/Faux Leather.

LENNA, Bakers

LENNA, Bakers

LENNA, Bakers, $79.95

In my opinion I saved the best for last. I do tend to have a thing for black and white, but these gladiators are very unexpected and for that I love them.

4 1/2″ heel. Material/Leather.

How to look chic for cheap

Being a recent college graduate, I have always been very aware of how much money I should spend. And while I do own a lot of shoes and am always buying more, I haven’t spent nearly as much as most women. I say, if you can find the same look for less, then why not? Amazingly, most women just don’t realize the quality of some of the shoes out there today.

One of my favorite places to look for surprisingly trendy AND comfortable shoes is Target. Just see for yourself!
