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.
Finding great fitting wide calf bootsis hard. Very, very hard. Luckily for us gals with wide calves, there are a lot more options out there than years before. Stores like Eloquii, Avenue, Ashley Stewart, and Lane Bryant are giving us options to two step in. Literally! I have never seen so many options for wide calves every! Another thing that I like about all of these options is that a lot of these boots are now coming in wide calf, wide feet or extra wide calf, extra wide feet. I had a hard time finding wide calf boots that would fit my equally wide foot. The fact that companies are making that kind of option now is amazing!
ASOS has plenty of wide width shoes available for wide feet girls like myself. Even though the offerings are few, the ones that they do have are very cute and very trendy. You can even find some basic black pumps there in a wide width. That is so rare.
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. (more…)
I always talk about flatforms to anyone that will listen. This style shoe isn’t for everyone, however those that wear them look very cool. They look like they don’t care what people think. I wear them because I like the minimal look that they have. I also like them because they are comfortable.
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.
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.
New York Fashion Week is in full swing right now and some of the shows have been a bit lackluster for me. Usually I post my favorite shows, but I have only been interested in a few. Maybe I will post those. Anyway. I have been dying to show what I thought should be my shoe of the week. (more…)
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. (more…)
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.

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.
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. (more…)
I recently got some wide calf boots from DSW that actually fit my calf muscles. Color me surprised. When I see a boot labeled wide calf in the store, they don’t usually fit. I get really skeptical when I see the label on boots because of that. However… When I went to DSW there were a ton of boots to pick from. Some fit and some didn’t, but the ones I bought look fantastic. (more…)
The nude slingback pump is the outfit game changer. Why? Because you can wear it just like you wear your favorite pair of nude pumps. The open nature of the shoe allows you to show more of you stockings or fancy printed or fishnet tights. They are also a neutral colored shoe which means they will go with most everything. Say yes to a multitasking shoe. This faux suede pair from Forever 21 are the perfect way to try this trend without breaking the bank. I think $29.80 is the perfect price. The picture comes from Forever 21.
The mule is fall’s new shoe. Every brand and every store is sending out their options for fall. Some mules are platforms and some or single soles. Some have that 90s chunky heel that came back last spring. There are even a ton of wedge options available as well. I like the slingback versions with the strap too. Shoedazzle has a ton of mules out right now. Other stores like Forever 21, Topshop, and others are chock full of this type of shoe. Some people think they look awkward on the foot, but I love them. They started gaining traction last spring. You know how trends need an introduction phase. I wrote about it here, but now they will be out in full force this fall. Are you going to try this trend? Check out a few options below. Photo from ASOS.
August is here and now is the time to stock up on pre-fall booties. I have to go to the mall every week as a homework assignment to observe things for class- such a difficult assignment I know- and I have been noticing all of the new fall merchandise.
Light sweaters, dressy sweatpants, wool blazers, and light coats have been posted up in stores since most summer sales ended last week. When I move over to the shoe section, I can see the first few pairs of pre-fall booties. These booties are great because they can be worn late summer and all the way through winter and low key through early spring and summer too.
This pair from Solestruck is great because you can get a black pair, a white pair, or a pair with both colors. Black and white can go with most anything in your wardrobe, and the platform should make them easier to walk in and wear. Also ignore that haters that say you can’t wear white after Labor Day. Every year I say that, and every year someone gets in a tizzy over that. Bah I say! Bah!
Anyway the booties are selling for $64.95, but you can get 30% if you sign up to their website. You also get 40% sale shoes for their 10th anniversary sale. You must be signed in to get both sales and it ends Thursday at noon. Happy pre-fall shopping!
