Payless has some really great wide calf boots this year. I saw a few options that were either flat, heeled, or wedged. I think that is great because it adds variety to a woman’s wardrobe. My favorite boot is the Tasha Tall Boot. It comes in cognac and black. It is a simple flat boot with a wide calf. It comes in regular sizes too, but I need the boot to be wide calf for it to fit. With the extended calf sizes that Payless has, these boots just might be the ones that I buy. Boot shoe sizes go up to a size 13 for women at Payless, and the calf sizes range from 16.4 inches to 19 inches. Measure the full circumference of your foot to see what you need.
I’m currently craving these sick shoes from Boohoo. They come in black and mocha, so you can wear them with pretty much anything. I also like that they are a pretty transitional shoe. The Layla Caged Peeptoe Platforms should be easy to style in the summer and the fall. They look great in the summer with light wash jeans, short dresses, maxi dresses, and shorts. They also look great in the fall with light sweaters and your jeans rolled up or cuffed. I can also see people wearing these shoes to the club or out to brunch with friends.
The Layla Caged Peeptoe Platforms are really cute. I almost want to get both pairs. I do love a good platform! They instantly make you look taller, and they are easier to walk in. These shoes also fit into the huge 70s and 90s trends that are going in fashion right now. If you want to wear them 70s style, try the mocha pair with either some flared bell bottom jeans, or a boho chic dress. If you want to try the 90s trend, find a classic babydoll dress à la Courtney Love of Lisa Loeb, and then add some white knee high tights…because why not?!?! Fashion should be fun. Get these shoes for $52.00 from Boohoo Night. Photos from Boohoo.
A week ago I celebrated my mother’s birthday by taking her to the mall. One of the stores we spent a lot of time in was Vince Camuto. My mother left that store with about four pairs of heels. Since I injured my knee, I only left the Vince Camuto Store with one pair of ballet flats that had a memory foam like insole. The shoes are very comfortable. Actually Vince Camuto is known for having very comfortable, yet super stylish shoes.
Do you want the Mansur Gavriel look for less? I hope the answer is yes. I know I do. Mansur Gavriel is one of the hottest accessory brands out there. Remember those bucket bags that had the super long wait list? That was Mansur Gavriel. They are a cult favorite, and all the stores are now copying their styles. The brand’s aesthetic goes great with the 70s trend that is in right now. Look below to check out and brand that is doing a similar style for less.
The Kristi from boohoo is the perfect strappy high heeled sandal. It is hot and very sexy. It looks really uncomfortable, but who cares because you are going to look so cute in them. I can see people rocking these shoes in jeans, with a cute dress, or even an evening dress. For $44 at boohoo, you can’t beat that. How would you rock these?
Pointy toe flats are everywhere this spring. I first saw them gaining some traction last spring. Now they are out in stores in different colorways and textures. I love these flats because you can wear them to work, out on the town, or casually throughout the day. You know how I love items that bring longevity to my wardrobe. The sad thing about pointy toe shoes is that they don’t usually fit the wider foot. #flatfootstruggles. The struggle is real y’all. So if you can flaunt it, go right on ahead. Do you like this trend? It is easy on the eyes or a pain in the butt? Photo from Target.
Single soled shoes have been making a comeback for some time, and they still are trendy, but….. with the 90s and 70s fashion trends coming back, you know the super high platform had to make a comeback too. They are everywhere. You can find them at Topshop, Nordstrom, Forever 21. Every store has there own versions of the shoe.
That 70s trend isn’t going away anytime soon. I’ve been trying to tell you. Are you listening? If you haven’t seen it yet, you will see it soon in hair, beauty, and clothes. The Boho look is back in stores for spring. Flare jeans are coming back, and skinny jeans were few and far between on the runways lately.
I loved the details and embellishments shown on the clothes and the accessories at the Dolce & Gabbana show at Milan Fashion Week. While everyone was talking about the pregnant models and the babies going down the runway, for me the shoes were my favorite part. Some were velvet, some were furry, and some had all of these sequins and things on them. I love the basic black pumps, and the slingbacks too, but who can resist a Mary Jane pump. I love Mary Janes. I just might have to incorporate them into my fall wardrobe. I have months to plan. Photo from here.
90s style shoes are all the rage at Topshop this spring. They have many shoes that were popular in the 90s, and I am not mad at that. I love chunky platforms, espadrilles, and mules. A lot of these shoes are under $100, so they won’t break your style budget. Get in on the trend before it is too late. Footwear is one area you can have fun in this spring! Check out all the latest styles below.
A lot of you all love to budget and save. Why not save early by shopping sales early? I wanted to bring you some great spring shoes that are already on sale. I love to save, and you do too. The shoes below range from flats to platforms and everything in between. Prepare to see some white and brown shoes. Also look for some colorful flats to help brighten up everyday outfits.

Tell me what you are thinking of wearing or doing for New Years below in the comments. Shop the post below so you can get your party on! Photo from Missguided.
Winter boots are no longer ugly. Many brands make some cute and fashionable winter boots. Most of the boots featured below don’t even look like the regular chunky looking winter boots, and most of them are either winterproof, weatherproof, or waterproof. That is really great considering winter has come early and strong, and you know you need to get yourself a pair of boots before the next snow.
FTC: I paid for the L’Oreal Collection Privee The Perfect Nudes lipsticks myself. This is an honest review.
I recently found the L’Oreal Collection Privee The Perfect Nudes lipsticks at my local Walmart. Finally some nude lipsticks for women of color. I was so happy I found them because I had been looking for a nude lipstick. I saw this collection advertised either on tv or a magazine, but I couldn’t find them in stores. SO far, I have only seen them in Walmart and Ulta.
Everybody needs that pair of shoes to take you from day to night. Especially this time of year, you may be hopping from one holiday party to the next right after work. The Jenya shoe from Sole Society can do just that. It comes in a black and a cream colored leather, but I think the third option is the best.
Just like the little black dress, the classic black pump or a cute pair of black heels have a classic appeal to them. You can wear them with everything and wear them just about anywhere. Few shoes will get you as much mileage as the classic black pump. While looking on ASOS, I saw a slew of black pumps that instantly caught my eye. Some are available in half and wide sizes. All of the ones that I picked are under $100, but the ones below are just a sliver of what you will find on the website. Photo from ASOS.
