My longgggg journey to capture a pair these suede wedges is finally over! I’ve stalked them for months, went from location to location to find them, only to leave empty handed every time. Which over the years because of my large mules I’ve grown accustomed to. Doesn’t suck any less though, so on a whim I thought I’d try my luck one more time in my small neighborhood mall while out picking up something, what I’ve no idea anymore because the sight of these shoes…in my size…blurs my memory from conjuring up anything before I lay my eyes on these. You all know a girl with big feet has some struggles, finding shoes that not only fit…but look good. These shoes fit both qualifications perfectly and I couldn’t be happier! They were a steal at 39.99 plus 20% off thanks to my subscription to payless’ promotional mailing list, came to $36 after tax!
I haven’t worn them out yet, but the next night out with the girls is probably when they’ll make their debut! Until then I’m on the hunt for a pretty dress or sweater to match!
Even though the weather maybe better suited to boots, and UGG’s I’m fantasizing of bearing my toes in something like these Alexander Wang Chloe sandals Rihanna is wearing. The way she’s paired them is genius by the way; the shorts and Tee let the focus fall solely on the heels.
I wouldn’t be able to pull that look off but the shoes I could definitely work with. On Net-a-Porter for $525 these are clearly just a dream. Even if I could deciding which one to take home would be near impossible; I love all 3 color options I truly can’t pick a favorite!
- CO-OP Barneys New York high heel shoes, $199
- Rodarte ruffle shoes, $244
- London Rebel platform shoes, $84
- Miu Miu jeweled sandals, $990
- Christian Louboutin platform pumps, $1,395
- Linda champagne glitter fabric sandalNEW SEASON Jimmy Choo – Designer…, $695
- Steve Madden glitter platform heels, $130
- Hunter wellington rubber boots, $145
- Zara brogue shoes, $30
- Kate Spade slingback pumps, $325
Who says glitter is only for special occasions? I think it’s perfectly appropriate to work in a bit of sparkle in bewteen the holidays, and a pair of gleaming kicks is one great way to do it. The key is not going overboard; pair anyone of these shoes with a simple plain shirt and pants for maximum impact.
I love the flats #9 from Zara with the leopard print, they make it easy to stand out from the crowd in a subtle and informal way.
Goodbye 2011. This year as every year that passes seems to have gone by faster than the last. Sitting here reflecting on all that has happened this year both in my personal life and my blog, there’s been a lot of highs and lows, all of which I am thankful for.
Not to get to philosophical on you guys while most of us are preparing on the eve of the biggest party of the year, but I’ve learned as great deal about myself this year. I’ve learned how important it is to live. And truly live, not just consume air. Life is incredible delicate, and I’m thankful for all the connections I’ve made and for the ones that continue to grow stronger.
For 2012 I not only resolve, but also am committed to uncovering me. Happiness starts from within and radiates outwards. That means I need to spend a lot more time getting to know the real me, and doing things and being with the people that I love. That’s one thing I’ve neglected in the years past that must end.
To cast away the regrets of the past year and move towards a better and brighter one I thought I’d just share everything that has touched and inspired me from 2011 and bring that positive energy on with me in the next.
11 trends/things I loved about 2011 that I’ll draw inspiration from for my wardrobe in 2012:
- Pattern on pattern
- Layering color
- Blush tones
- Structured satchels
- Buckle details
- Rooney Mara
- Tortoise print
- Polka dots
- Red lips
Happy New Year everyone!!
