What’s On My List: Comfy Shoes For Spring

There comes a time every few months when a girl needs to revamp her shoe wardrobe, and my favorite season for this is spring.  As the days get longer and the temperatures climb, it’s time to bring out those sun-loving wedges, strappy heels and flat sandals.  I have a few go-to warm weather shoes, notably my piping-hot pink Fendi strappy heels and my Michael Kors platform wedges.  And while I have countless peep toe pumps and high heels that are great for work and nights out, I’m currently searching to add a few good pairs of everyday comfy shoes to (read more)

Best Websites To Shop For Designer Shoe Deals

When it comes to buying designer shoes, I absolutely refuse to pay full-price. Part of it is the principle of the thing, and the other is that I simply cannot afford the price tags. I don’t see any justification for buying anything full-price when fashions are changing so fast.  Why buy those new Manolo Blahnik shoes hot off the shelf when you know that in a few months the price will be cut in half?  Does anyone really care if you’re wearing shoes from last summer?  If they still look amazing and you know how to work them, I think (read more)

Pet Peeves When it Comes to Shoe Shopping

Today I asked my Twitter friends to answer one question: What is your #1 pet peeve when it comes to shoe shopping? They were all great answers, and I think any retail store could benefit from taking these pet peeves into consideration.  @JetSetGirls‘s answer stood out to me the most: “I always like to test drive my shoes on carpet & hard wood floors.  Bugs me when stores don’t have both!”  How true.  We need to walk on carpet to make sure the shoes aren’t wobbly or off-center, and walking on hard wood floors reveals whether a pair of shoes (read more)

How Much is Too Much When Shoe Shopping?

When I buy shoes, I don’t look at the price immediately.  I look at the shoe, and if I can’t take my eyes off of it, then I look at the price.  Being a college student and working part-time, I don’t have a ton of extra income to spend on fashion, and I’ve never spent more than $200 on a pair of shoes.  I believe that $300 is too much for a pair of shoes (for me). If I buy a pair of $300 shoes, that’s a chunk out of my paycheck, and I simply can’t rationalize spending that on (read more)
