Recent Purchase from Bakers

Yesterday I took a trip to the mall, and of course had to stop by Bakers. I absolutely love their shoes, but normally don’t buy any because they’re a bit above my price range. On my way out, I walked past the clearance section and found a pair of shoes I’ve had my eye on for quite some time.

Bakers Isis

Birdcage Ankle Bootie

Originally $89.95, ON SALE FOR $49.95!

Now I just have to wait for it to warm up a bit so I can wear them!!!

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?

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?

This is Why I Love ModCloth.com!

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

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

And last but most certainly not least…

5829_1

Unicorn Princess Heels, $119.99 (SOLD OUT)

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!!

My Shoes From Target

Alright so I FINALLY got my Sigerson Morrison for Target shoes yesterday and I LOVE them! I got sooooo many compliments about them today and they really are super hot! For those of you who remember my older post, I received both the Mossimo Verla and the Sigerson Morrison shoes last week, but they sent me a size 10 instead of a size 7…Don’t get me started. So after sending it back I was able to get a refund and purchase the right size for a few dollars cheaper ($5 and change!) because of the mishap.

So I was extremely excited when I received the CORRECT size of the Sigerson Morrison shoes and was fairly happy with the shape of them. I will say that a couple of the purple studs had fallen off and I had to superglue them back on (that kinda bummed me out, but I got them at the end of the sale (due to their error) so I think I got one of the pairs that kept getting pushed back because of the loose pieces). But I fixed those up and they still looked super cute, so I’m happy. How could I complain for that price!!?!?

So, like I promised before, here are the pictures:

blkprplesig

Sigerson Morrison Divya, $5.23

greyverla

Mossimo Verla, $7.49

I do apologize about the picture quality, but I haven’t quite found a good set up to photograph my shoes yet, but I want to!!

These babies have gotten me SO MANY COMPLIMENTS, and no one can believe the price I paid!!! I highly reccomend Target shoes, they have never dissapointed me!

A Recent Discovery!!

Somehow, until just a few days ago, I had never heard of http://www.shiekhshoes.com. And I am so glad I found out about this site, because IT IS AWESOME! The prices are amazing and they have all the popular styles. 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.

Enjoy!

Michael Antonio Chai

Michael Antonio Chai, $41.97

I love these shoes. I actually saw them in blue in People Magazine, which is what directed me to the site. The banded straps and the bold colors make for quite a head turning change to the gladiator sandal!

Shiekh Flare10X

Shiekh Flare10X, $44.97

So this style also comes in black and white as well as a multicolored, and it took me awhile to decide that this color theme was my favorite. This cute little satin peep toe looks great with that bold pattern, which is a nice change.

Shiekh Fortune

Shiekh Fortune, $44.97

The metal studs in this make this such a rebellious shoe…I just love it. It’s like rocker meets biker meets sophisticated hottie 🙂

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.
