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.

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…


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

Next on the list:


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:


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


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


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 ๐Ÿ™‚

And lastly…


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.

Do you have a favorite/least favorite?

Let me know!


Last week at T.J. Maxx I came across the GREATEST pair of Via Spiga’s but I didn’t buy them. I thought about them all week, and today on my lunch break I went back, and they still had them. They were clearanced for $30 down from $200 which is an amazing deal for the brand, but I was trying to be good! That was until I tried them on and a couple cute little old ladies asked me for fashion advice and continued to tell me that I definitely needed to buy those shoes. That’s all I needed to hear, and SOLD.

Soooo….tonight as I’m doing my weekend online browsing, what do I find?

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!



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, $99

Surprise themโ€ฆ 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…


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, $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!!ย  ๐Ÿ™‚


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, $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, $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, $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.
