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


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?


This is Why I Love!

I always find the most unique and unusual shoes at, and I love them!!! And they have a $5 flat rate for shipping! Here’s some of my faves:


Banana Split Heels, $39.99

This peep toe has some great detailing and one hell of a pop of color.

Heavy Metal Sandals in Black Sunday, $27.99

A nice bit of hardware on the ever-popular Gladiator sandal.

And last but most certainly not least…

These are definitely above my price range, but aren’t they AWESOME!? Yes, a little weird, and a bit quirky, but I would wear the hell out of these!!!

Love these picks? Hate them? Let me know!!

What do you think?

A Few of My Favorites at Target

Just browsing through Target’s website and I found a few nice shoes under this season’s trends section. It seems that the gladiator style is still very much in, as well as animal textures and hardware.

These are my top three right now:


Mossimo Pavla Flat Sandal, Grey patent, $24.99

This is a nice refreshed version of the very prominent gladiator sandal for this coming summer. I love the grey, and the studs really give it a nice touch.


Xhilaration Tameka Flat Sandals, Bronze Snake, $19.99

I’m pretty sure this is my favorite. I mean look at the embellishment on this sandal! The beading detail is just fantastic, and so is the price!


Mossimo Vida Peep-Toe Pumps, Copper Snake $26.99

The first thing I notice on these pumps is the great copper color. And then I notice the cutout details and the adorable peep-toe. I really love this pump.

I have already found about 15 pairs that I want and I’ve only been through the first few pages….So I decided to share some of my favorites, and will probably add more later.

New Arrivals at Guess

I really love Guess shoes, they always seem to surprise me again and again, and I get tons of compliments on my Guess shoes every time I wear a pair. So it brings me a lot of pleasure to post some of the highlights from their new arrivals!

Carrielee, $99

Surprise them… embrace your sassier side wearing these heels. Pointed toe with stiletto heel. Inspired by wild designs.

Oh. My. God. These shoes are NUTS. I SOOOOOOO wish they were cheaper because they would be mine NOW. I would wear these killer shoes on a night out on the town, or even just out to eat. I don’t know, I love them so much I think I would wear them everywhere!


Delicacy, $99

Our take on the gladiator style is crazy sexy. Adjustable harness buckles with hidden elastic at the toe, bridge and ankle. Leather lined foot bed and insole.

Guess really REALLY knows how to make a sexy shoe. Seriously, this shoe just screams sexy and in control. I want…

These wonderfully strappy bronze heels would make a great statement with a deep colored dress like a darker red or a blue.

Stripes add a sophisticated edge to these sassy stilettos. Oversized buckle at peep toe.

These definitely seem to be picking up a bit of that nautical inspiration that’s slowly creeping into our Spring 09 fashion line-up. A nice casual shoe, great with jeans or sun dresses.

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.

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.

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 1/4″ heel. Material/Faux Leather.

LENNA, Bakers

LENNA, Bakers
