This is more of a Ginger than ‘merryann’… 😉 The gold glitter Enzo Angiolini ‘Merryann’ Pump w/ 3.75 heel is gorgeous, definitely a stand out piece that catches anyone’s attention without it looking too gaudy. It maintains a classy feel, with a very seductive, albeit, simple shape. I wore it for a wedding and paired it with a beautiful black dress, and despite such an attention getting dress, a lot of people caught eye on these shoes! They are even more gorgeous in person, because they definitely sparkle and shine. I got a lot of compliments that night, and I would wear these at any dressy function. store: nordstrom price: $70
For a couple of years now, they’ve totally renovated the T-strap into something more feminine and complex with different shapes. Seen here is the ruffle. The white is my first ever Badgley Mischka sandals with more rounded ruffles, imitating petals. The one to the right, the black Nina t-strap ruffle is more angular, with straight definitions. I’m REALLY into t-straps, as much as I’ve been a fan of my ever devotion to Mary Janes. But they just keep getting better, as the floral shapes address the forefront of fashion. Best thing???? The price. The Badgley Mischkas, which I’ve been drooling over since 4 years ago, retails $219. I got them for $60. The Ninas, which still retails at Macy’s for $99, I found at a treasure trove for $24. Everyone always asks me where I get my shoes, and I just say you just have to really look at bargain places.
It’s been a while since a new fashion blog right? Well, this one I couldn’t quite let go of…it was too crazy to pass. Well, I’m one to spot sales, or even “knock offs” similar to very expensive clothing, but way cheaper. Generally, if I really love something, I’ll try to buy the originals on sale, or on ebay, but if I can do without, if it costs over $150, I’ll try to find something along the lines of… Well, here’s an example: I love these pair of booties but can never really get myself to buy it, being worth $198 at my favorite store. Even on sale, those suckers (on left) will probably run between $99-$135. But the one on the right is only $60, which I found on a competing online store. They’re cut exactly the same, and both made out of leather. With the slight difference in color contrast, there’s the obvious difference in price. These are also a great pair of booties, versatile for spring, all through summer, and making its appearance even in fall. Adding a bit of height, there’s an organic twist on the gladiator look, fresh with lacing and pleating, giving it a […]
Tattered Cosmos Sandals Tiny leather metallic blossoms with frayed, fringy petals gleam atop slim straps, with an adjustable buckle. By Miss Albright. In person, it’s not as pink as in the picture, but more like pinkish-copper. The detail is beautiful though, taking a feminine spin on the gladiator style. It’s a great eye stopper flat sandal. And if you know me, I have a fetish for flowers and pink. Click on the pictures to enlarge the image. I’ve been waiting for them to go on sale, and when they finally did, I was one of the first to buy them. They’re now completely out of stock. Source: – Retail $$: $119 Bought: on sale Status: own
Lela Rose: Brinley Ribbon Pump I loved this when I saw it online, so I though in store, it would lose its charm w/ the material…but luckily, I was definitely smitten when I slipped it on my feet. I felt very feminine wearing it, with it’s thin heel and Parisian, almost nautical, look. Love it. Love it. Definitely one of my picks this summer. Store’s Description: “This multi-media designer pump by Lela Rose has retro Parisian charm. It features a luxurious faille upper with grosgrain ribbon accents, a contrasting topline and a 3.5" stiletto heel with a stacked wood look for a natural touch. Padded insole for comfort.
