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.

Super Comfy Flats from Target

Yesterday, while shopping in Target, I of course had to make a pit stop in the shoe section. I came across these flats and was immediately drawn to the purple ones. I’m typically pretty skeptical about flats because they’re not normally as comfortable as one would hope, but these fit surprisingly well. I liked them so much that I bought a pair in purple (or berry) and black. I wore the purple ones ALL day today and I didn’t have any comfort issues. No pain, no blisters, just happy, comfy feet 🙂

Merona Madalena Suede Ballet Flats

Berry-$19.99

Merona Madalena Suede Ballet Flats

Black-$19.99

These flats also come in yellow, teal, red, gray, brown, and taupe.

As a sidenote, I would like to once again recommend that if you don’t already have some, INVEST IN BAND AID BRAND BLISTER BLOCK!

I don’t always remember to put it on, but I ALWAYS make sure to wear it when I have new shoes on. You always have to break them in, and the Blister Block helps to take away the friction from the shoe to your foot.

I’ve only seen Blister Block at drug stores like Walgreens and CVS, so make sure to pick some up!

Lots of Cute New Shoes at Payless!

Every once in awhile I like to visit the Payless website to see if anything new is going on with the Christian Siriano and Lela Rose lines. To be honest, I’m a little disappointed with Siriano’s line, but I did find some cute stuff from Lela Rose. Check it out!

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 🙂

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?

Great Deals at Old Navy

Every girl needs some basic but stylish flip flops. Don’t get me wrong, I love my heels and wear them every day. But, there are the occasional moments where you’ll be walking a lot or you just need to run out of the house, and high heels just aren’t the best idea. For those cases, here are some fantastic deals from Old Navy. They’re super cute too!!

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!

Enjoy!!

Antigua

Antigua, $70

Rosettes add instant romance to your outfit. Strap on these sandals for a lovely feminine touch. T-strap design. Adjustable ankle strap.

How cute are these!?!? I just love that little bit of detailing, it isn’t over the top or overly girly so I abolutely love it.

Carrielee

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

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…

Drifter

Drifter, ON SALE FOR $40 (originally $79.99)

Classic. Clean. Timeless. Get it all in this chic pump that brings natural style to any outfit.

This really is a great wear with everything pump. The round toe makes for better comfort as well as an over all friendlier appearance, and the 4 in. heel will REALLY boost those legs!

Nevel

Nevel, $120

This trendy peep toe pump will knock their socks off… making it this season’s must-have shoe. Stiletto heel. Silver-tone buckle.

This shoe immediately makes me think of the chainmail type armor used in medieval times. All you need is a sword and a horse and your good to go!!  🙂

Nisadora

Nisadora, ON SALE FOR $50 (originally $99.99)

Colors collide for a fashion-forward, lovely high heel. Silk rosette detail at peep toe. Sling back and stiletto heel.

Once again I have to say how much I love that purple is so in right now. With the combination of the colors on the fabric and the ever so bold rosette, you will not go unnoticed with this shoe. Pair it with a great little black dress to impress.

Nolana

Nolana, $99

The ultimate in strappy heels, these intricately designed shoes add a twist of glam to any look.

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

Teach

Teach, $110

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.

Vino

Vino, $110

These gorgeous gladiator sandals are designed to keep you looking dramatic and daring. Patent leather and open toe. Jewels adorn the vamp. Adjustable ankle strap.

These are wonderfully glamorous and just the right amount of flashy with the jewels along the vamp. Would be great with a lighter colored dress.

Which one is your favorite??

New Arrivals at Spiegel

I always go through the sale shoes first, but after that I check out the new arrivals, and I was quite pleased with some of the styles I saw here today.

Suede Peep-Toe Wedge Pump

Suede Peep-Toe Wedge Pump, ON SALE FOR $69.00 (Orig. $99.00)

Suede-covered, sculpted 3 1/2″ wedge heel and 1/2″ platform. Rounded peep toe. Imported.

Look at these. Just look at them. First off, the color is FABULOUS. Second, I am loving the wedge/heel of this SUPER CUTE shoe!!! I just put this shoe up to the top of my ‘most wanted’ list!

Patent T-Strap Wedge

Patent T-Strap Wedge, $49.00

Glossy oval-toe shoe with covered 2¾” heel. Patent-look. Imported.

I don’t know how I feel about these. I honestly don’t know if I love them or hate them…I think I need to see them on.

Cut-Out Leather Pump

Cut-Out Leather Pump, $69.00

Open-toe leather pump with intricate cutout detailing. 4″ covered, boulevard heel. Imported.

I really love unique detailing on shoes, and I think these cutouts give the shoe a nice effect. These would look great with some dark skinny jeans.

Suede Ruffle Pump

Suede Ruffle Pump, $59.00

Suede covered 2½” kitten heel. Imported.

I normally steer clear from anything that’s bubblegum pink, but I have to say I really like these shoes. I’m pretty sure the ruffle is what does it for me…but with a nice little kitten heel, these would be the cutest accent to a nice biz cas work outfit.

Leather Tie-Back Pump

Leather Tie-Back Pump, $59.00

Peep-toe with cut-outs and tie-back at the heel. Stacked 3 1/2″ lacquered wood heel. Imported.

I really love shoes with cutouts, and this one has plenty. The tie in the back is also a really nice detail.

Shoe for Thought

Once again my shoe for thought is by Oh Deer! Shoes. They are yet again a little above my price range, but I absolutely love these! I present to you the Strata…
