Cosmosis Monaco Mary-Jane Shoes

I received this cute pair of Cosmosis Monaco mary-janes in maroon leather to review.  The Monaco features leather criss cross straps and nickel hardware.  While they aren’t my usual style, I thought I’d give them a try. The first thing I noticed when I took them out of the box was how supple the leather felt.  I knew at that point that they’d be a dream on my feet!  The Monaco is very comfortable, thanks to the five point reflex system in the insole, which adds cushioning and shock absorption. Don’t be alarmed if the insole slips out – it (read more)

Sorel “Pakua” Boot Review

I’ve gotta gush about my newest shearling boots : The Sorel “Pakua”.  This is Sorel’s spin on shearling. The comfortable, breathable construction is perfect for strolling the streets of any city.  I loved wearing them to class this past winter, when I was finishing my final Strategic Communications project.  They are warm, comfortable and have great traction – perfect for hiking the snowy/icy hill to reach the library and walking around all day on campus.  You can purchase a pair of your own from NorthWestOutlet for $105.88. The Sorel “Pakua” features: • Shearling and waterproof suede upper. • Removable molded (read more)

Kamik “Bohemia” Rain Boots Review

Review Saturday, just as the temperature dropped and the likelihood of rain was on the horizon, I received a pair of rain boots from Kamik in the mail.  Now, when you normally think of rain boots, you may have visions of (ugly) duck boots or unflattering plain-jane rubber boots in your head.  But Kamik’s boots are a far cry from those gag-inducing styles.  I received Kamik Bohemia rain boots, which have a playful hippie floral design all over them.  And the colors are enough to brighten any rainy day!  Not only are they cute; they are functional in inclimate weather.  The boot is waterproof (read more)

What I Bought: Corso Como ‘Posy’ & Marciano ‘Tana’

Well, I finally did it – I bought the two shoe styles I’ve been wanting for some time – silver flats and black peep-toe booties.  I’m going to have to adjust my budget for a while to compensate, but the purchase was totally worth it. I couldn’t wait to try out the Marciano ‘Tana’ booties, so I wore them to work today.  All I can say is, wow.  They look amazing, and (believe me or not) they are the most comfortable heeled shoe I own!  The 4 1/2″ stiletto heel, coupled with the zipper detail and peep-toe gives this shoe (read more)

Bernardo Leopard ‘Biker’ Flats

These shoes may be the first pair of flats I’ve owned and LOVED!  They are produced by Bernardo, a shoe company that has been around for more than 60 years and has adapted its classic styles to the times.  Sophisticated and comfortable, these pretty leopard ‘Biker’ flats are part of Bernardo’s Fall ’08 Collection.  I love how the leopard print, red bows and roses contrast with the little metal studs on the toe.  They are perfect for wearing with a black or brown pencil skirt or capris.  How do they look? About Bernardo Footwear: Bernardo is a maker of better (read more)

Review of Bonnie Marcus’ “Day at the Beach” Flip-flops

I received a pair of these “Day at the Beach” flip-flops from Joanna at Bonnie Marcus, and I must say that I was instantly taken by how cute they are!  In addition to the sandals, I also received a beautiful media kit in a hot pink and animal print folder.  Needless to say, I was impressed.  Since I got them, I’ve worn them to and from my pedicure appointments, to the grocery store, and for a nice stroll around the block.  They never once hurt my feet in any way, and I even got a compliment from my pedicurist!

Donald J. Pliner ‘Gisa’ Review

I got these stunning Donald J Pliner – Gisa heels from, and I couldn’t have been more blown away!  I love the contrasting reptile embossed leather upper and suede-covered heel. When I first tried the shoes on, I found them a bit snug for an 8.5, so if you buy these I would recommend going a half-size up.  Nonetheless, once I got my feet strapped into place, I was amazed at how comfortable they were to wear.  The 4 1/2″ covered heel would make you think that they would kill your feet, but the small platform, cushioned insole, and (read more)

A Belated Birthday Gift…From White Mountain Footwear!

This is what I first saw when I opened the door after hearing the doorbell ring this afternoon. I had no idea what it was. I opened the box… …and low and behold, there were FIVE boxes of shoes from White Mountain Footwear!!! How, you might ask, did I inherit five free pairs of shoes this afternoon?! Well, I spoke with David of White Mountain Footwear a few weeks ago, and he had asked to discuss some of the company’s interpretations of high-end designer fashions that retail for $30-50. Being the poor but fashion-hungry college student that I am, I (read more)
