Shopping Tips

I know I’ve told you that I’m a big supporter of colorful shoes and while that may be true, I acknowledge that we all need a basic black shoe collection to get us through all events of life that require the wearing of shoes. Type Z‘s “I Can” ankle boots would be my ideal candidates for the universally stylish black ankle boot. I mentioned yesterday that one of the most important factors for me when buying shoes is the shape of a shoe. I love stiletto heels and sleek silhouettes and these booties have both! The 4 3/4″ stiletto heel will make your legs look a mile long while the hidden 1″ platform helps you to get maximum comfort. L.O.V.E.

Today’s Heel of the Day is Chinese Laundry’s “Hoity Toity” sexy stiletto pump. One of the most important things about shoes for me – and probably one of the many reasons why I love designer shoes so much – is the shape of a shoe. Unfortunately, it is the shape where most budget-fashion retailers compromise when trying to redo a designer inspired heel. And this is what ruins many, many budget-friendly shoes for me. No matter how cheap they might be; if I don’t like the shape, I won’t buy them. Period.

Imagine my excitement when I stumble upon those rare precious gems where both shape AND price are just right! The shape of these darlings is absolutely to-die-for and I really love the high arch not to mention the sky-high 4 3/4″ stiletto heel. If I didn’t know they’re only $109, I would’ve easily labeled them as designer shoes. I’m not going to lie to you; they will pain the hell out of you, but it will be oh-so worth it. Now what are you waiting for? Head over to Chinese Laundry, grab your pair & feel like sex on heels. (Hurry, most sizes are down to low quantities already!)

Running this blog involves spending a lot of time shoe browsing which is something I thoroughly LOVE to do since my heart is that of a true shoe addict. And since I see hundreds of new shoes daily with a few of them being delicately beautiful and exceptionally amazing I thought it’d be a waste if I don’t share my precious little finds with you, our readers. So, from today on you’ll find this new daily feature showcasing the best shoes you’ll ever find online. I promise I’ll try my best to stay under $150.

And we start with a BANG! I’m like a moth to the flame when it comes to colorful shoes. I know many people are hesitant to buy shoes in bright, loud colors and deem them impractical since they don’t match with everything like your standard black, beige and brown, but I’ll choose a yellow pump over a boring black shoe ANYTIME! And these strappy ALDO sandals are as gorgeous as it can get. The shape looks very Dior-esque and I just love the exotic snakeskin texture and the subtle platform. But those colors are where it’s really at! They’re the best thing about these heels. I feel like a kid in a candy store. Now if you please excuse me – I’m off to order a pair in each color.
