New Year’s Discounts

For anyone who lives on the East Coast, you guys have an idea of what the weather has been like here. Living in an area that’s not used to snow, getting 14 inches is quite an accomplishment. Add on the 400+ accidents on the road and suddenly the snow isn’t nearly as enjoyable.

So…I decided to finally join AAA.

Why didn’t I do this sooner!?!? Here are some of the discounts I’ll be getting with my membership:

Banana Republic Factory Stores, Gap Outlets, New York & Company, Payless, Shoes.com, and Target.com!

So on top of being covered behind the wheel, I now have even more discounts to add to my shoe purchases!

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!

Emma Stone’s Boots in Zombieland

Hi everyone!! It’s been awhile but I just HAD to talk about how amazing Emma Stone’s boots are in Zombieland!! I just saw the movie yesterday and loved it, and all day today all I can think about is how much I WANT THOSE BOOTS!!!

Zombieland-boots

Sooo….here’s the hunt for an afforable pair for myself 🙂

pCHIC1-6335586t220x350

Crinkle Flat Boots

found at Charlotte Russe for $34.99

I think I like these the best!!

What do you think? Let me know!!

UPDATE

So I was just informed by a reader that Charlotte Russe has sold out of the Crinkle Flat Boots as of today. Fortunately I ordered my pair last night (my size was the only one left) and I am anxiously waiting their arrival at my doorstep!!! But for those of you who are still looking for that great ‘Wichita’ boot, I’ve got some more additions…

I’ll start off with the more expensive ones and work my way down to a more affordable price range…

Unisa Riri Boot

found at Piperlime.com for $99

It’s ok…but I’m not excited.

pl605650-00vliv01

Aerosoles Ride Line
found at Piperlime.com for $89
I must say I’m very impressed with Aerosoles…didn’t think they had it in them to make a boot like this! It definitely has more hardware than Emma Stone’s but they’re still a very close match.

Chaps Caleigh Tall Boots, Kohls
originally $99.99, ON SALE FOR $69.99
Now these are a good match! A litte more expensive than the ones at Charlotte Russe, but I think it’s still a pretty good deal!!
So now I start the hunt for a great jacket….

I think my Halloween costume is covered this year 🙂

A Few of My Favorites at Target

Just browsing through Target’s website and I found a few nice shoes under this season’s trends section. It seems that the gladiator style is still very much in, as well as animal textures and hardware.

These are my top three right now:

41zwmfgekl_aa260_

Mossimo Pavla Flat Sandal, Grey patent, $24.99

This is a nice refreshed version of the very prominent gladiator sandal for this coming summer. I love the grey, and the studs really give it a nice touch.

41osrzng2cl_aa260_

Xhilaration Tameka Flat Sandals, Bronze Snake, $19.99

I’m pretty sure this is my favorite. I mean look at the embellishment on this sandal! The beading detail is just fantastic, and so is the price!

51q4lhhjg4l_aa260_

Mossimo Vida Peep-Toe Pumps, Copper Snake $26.99

The first thing I notice on these pumps is the great copper color. And then I notice the cutout details and the adorable peep-toe. I really love this pump.

The Shoe Rack Dilemma…

I think it’s safe to say that I’ve accumulated quite a bit of shoes over the years, and my closet is getting smaller and smaller, so it seems. I have an over-the-door shoe rack which holds some of my shoes, but I still have shoes piled (as neatly as possible) in my closet, using up my shelf space and all of my floor space, and it really is time that I do something about it. At first I found this 50 pair shoe rack at Target, but it got mixed reviews and honestly it seems like it would be a bit of an eye sore in my small room. I did, however, come across this interesting shoe organizer by Rakku, and I’ve been debating whether or not it’s something I might want to invest in.

Here’s some pictures to get a better idea…

silverwheelcloset

dimension

This really does seem like a great space saver, and it’s definitely a unique way to store your shoes! Now I’m just wondering how it is on the shoes. I found it on Target’s website, but unfortunately there were only a couple reviews but they both complained about how hard it was to put together. My question is: Is it worth it?

Anyone have any shoe storage tips?

And now for a poll….

What are your special Valentine’s Day plans??

My Target.com Order!!

As some of you may know, last week I ordered two pairs of shoes from Target’s INSANELY cheap sale. These are the two I ordered:

Mossimo Verla Mary Jane Pumps, $7.49

Mossimo Verla Mary Jane Pumps, $7.49

Sigerson Morrison Divya Crystal Pumps

Sigerson Morrison Divya Crystal Pumps

Well yesterday I finally got the package I had been waiting for all week and, as you can imagine, I was SOOOOO EXCITED when I saw that little Target box! SO I opened it up, and ripped open the first box, which was the Sigerson Morrison shoes (the ones I was REALLY anticipating) and I almost cried when I did…they gave me the wrong size by THREE SIZES! I even checked my order and receipt again, where it clearly said size 7 for both….but somehow they sent me a size 10. TEN. Meaning the actual box size was bigger too. It’s not like a half size accident or anything that could go unnoticed. This was a major difference, I mean the size 10 box is like 3 inches longer than the 7!!! So I seriously almost cried…but went ahead and checked out the Mossimo Verla pumps, which fortunately WERE the right size, and to my happy surprise, way cuter than the picture. Unfortunately though, at the time I was so upset about the Sigerson Morrison shoes that I couldn’t pay the other ones much mind. So I printed out the ticket to take it to the local Target store and return the shoes…and when I got there they told me they couldn’t put the order in for me there, and that in order to have them sent to me without me having to pay the price+shipping all over again that I would have to call their Target.com customer service number. I groaned a little on the inside, but went ahead and made the call…

I want to start off by saying that the Target.com reps are soooo nice, and the guy I talked to was really helpful and made me feel a lot better. Fortunately they still have some size 7’s left in stock (I was so worried they wouldn’t seeing that these shoes were on sale for $9.24) and so he put the order through for me. I tried to get the shipping expedited seeing that it was their error, but he told me if I did that I would have to pay $16.00, even after a $9.00 credit. So then he told me that he would still be able to give me the $9.00 credit to put towards a 3-5 day shipping, which made the amount come to $5.23 after tax. Which means I got these shoes half off the sale price because of their error. So…even though $9.24 was insanely cheap, I still managed to get them even cheaper! So hopefully I’ll have those sometime next week, and then I can give a review about them. After all of that, I was able to go back home and enjoy the gray Mossimo Verla’s…

And I have been enjoying them. The Verla is soooo nice. The picture above (from Target.com) is really washed out, but in real life it’s like a taupe color and the canvas part is a light beige, not white. I will add some pictures later, but right now I’ll just give my review. After trying them on I was so pleased with the fit, and once I walked around I was amazed at how comfortable they are. So I wore them to work today (I work Tuesday through Saturday) and I got SO MANY compliments. I’m known as the ‘shoe girl’ at work so the girls are always looking to see what shoes I’m wearing, and today I did not dissapoint! Everyone loved them, and no one could believe I bought these for $7.49 from TARGET! So I gave them the ultimate test while at work, mostly sitting, but I did walk around quite a bit as well (and I walk fast, which can sometimes be painful if the shoe doesn’t fit right.) The 8 hours went by and my feet are STILL comfortable, and as a matter of fact I’m still wearing them…I don’t even want to take them off!! The hidden platform really helps to make them super comfortable, and the adjustable strap keeps my foot from sliding at all. I could seriously wear these all day, and I think I just might!!!

FOOTWEAR CLEARANCE AT TARGET!!

So I found some awesome deals and steals while browsing through target.com, and even though they are so cheap, I might just break the bank because I want to buy them ALL!!!! I have put up a bunch of my favorites that I think shouldn’t be passed up. And believe me, at these prices, they won’t be available much longer!!

I’ve been keeping my eye on these Sigerson Morrison shoes for some time now. I love these shoes, they’re so glam and bad ass,  and to top it off, they’re purple (my favorite color, even before it became the IT color-which has become very useful for me now that you can find everything in purple). Sooo once I saw that price I went ahead and ordered them IMMEDIATELY!! I’ll be sure to let you know how these babies are when I get them!

How to look chic for cheap

Being a recent college graduate, I have always been very aware of how much money I should spend. And while I do own a lot of shoes and am always buying more, I haven’t spent nearly as much as most women. I say, if you can find the same look for less, then why not? Amazingly, most women just don’t realize the quality of some of the shoes out there today.

One of my favorite places to look for surprisingly trendy AND comfortable shoes is Target. Just see for yourself!
