New Shoes at Victoria’s Secret!

It’s that time again…time to get your feet all pretty so you can wear those cute strappy sandals in the back of your closet. But for those of you who, like me, feel you need new ones (or just really really want them), Victoria’s Secret is definitely ready for spring to get here.

Let me just add that, while I do love all of these styles below, some of them are definitely more than what I would spend. Either way, they are still great styles to see for inspiration. You will definitely be seeing similar styles from less expensive brands.

Keep an eye out for these at Payless

I love how often I am happily surprised now by Payless. These designer collaborations are really bringing their name back, and let’s face it, their new shoes are great. I remember when I was in middle school I had a pair of shoes from Payless, and I was so embarrassed about it that I wouldn’t admit it to anyone. Now I can’t wait to tell people that the stylish shoes I’m rockin’ are from Payless. The looks on their faces are always so great!

I think now more than ever we should all be proud of keeping a budget and choosing to spend less money. It’s responsible, it’s smart, and it’s really a rewarding feeling to know that you were able to put together a super trendy outfit on a super small budget. These notions were the only thing that got me through college, and even my first-job-straight-out-of-college-not-making-nearly-enough-money rough patch.

My theory is, no matter how much or how little money you make, you need to reward yourself. Learning how to do that without going overboard is what makes you a smarter shopper. Sure, you spend a little extra time doing more research and finding those great deals, but you are MUCH less likely to have buyer’s remorse from a $30 pair of shoes as opposed to a $300 pair. And you’ll make all your friends jealous when they find out how LITTLE you spent.

And here’s a few options for your personal reward to yourself…if you so choose πŸ™‚

Lela Rose for Payless

Ashland Mary Jane Wedge

$34.99

Available in solid blue as well

Lela Rose for Payless

Satin Platform Dress Sandal

$34.99

Also available in black

American Eagle

Diana Jewel Flat

$22.99

Also available in black

American Eagle

Kendal Canvas Knot Wedge

$24.99

ON SALE FOR $19.99

Also available in white

And I saved the best for last…

Fioni

Lavish Ruffle Pump

$24.99

Also available in black

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT

And just think…for the same price as one night’s dinner (for 2) you could be purchasing a pair of shoes to wear all season, if not more! Something to think about…

Highlights from Spring 2010 Couture

The 2010 Couture Show has come and gone, and once again there are quite a few looks that have caused some excitement (and not just for me!) Here are some really fantastic (and some not so great) trends to look out for in the next few months from the 2010 Couture Show!!

First up…

ARMANI PRIVE

These are pretty nice. Nothing that really wows me, but I do like them all.

Next on the list:

CHANEL

When I look at the first photo, I immediately think 1950’s Barbie meets Lady Gaga. It’s an interesting combination. As for the shoes, I really love the heel detail but I can’t help but think that overall the shoes look kind of cheap. I am really hoping that one of these days the super ornate heel trend will catch on in the affordable shoe market!

Onto one of my favorites:

CHRISTIAN DIOR

I absolutely love the equestrian influences here! And I always love a good ballgown. This was the showstopper in my book.

GIVENCHY

I am loving the t-strap bootie and desperately want a pair for myself!

JOHN PAUL GAULTIER

I’m surprised to say that I actually really enjoy the Avatar inspired collection here.

Those shoes with that purse on the top are definitely on my outfit wish list πŸ™‚

And lastly…

VALENTINO

The first shoe is a little too mummy-ish to me, but the other two are pretty awesome. The cut-out and pieced together look is a lot of fun.

What are your thoughts?
