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.

Browsing through Steve Madden’s Clearance Section

I was browsing through Steve Madden’s website and saw some pretty awesome shoes on their clearance section. Now I am all about finding super cute shoes for super cheap prices, so you’ll normally see most of my top picks in the $30-$50 range (which as a recent college grad is my current budget for shoes, that way I can still get a bunch of them!) so these aren’t all necessarily super cheap, but the prices are definitely still great!

Check out some of my faves below.
