review: sole society accent pumps

I love my new Sole Society/Marco Santi Accent peep toe pumps! At about 5″ high (with about an 1″ of platform), these gorgeous lipstick red heels are super sexy and high.
Here are my extra special shoe ratings:
Style: LOVE IT! the peep toe is my absolute favorite. I love the super high heel and the Mary Jane and sling back strap! 5/5
Fit: I ordered the 9.5 even though I normally wear a 9. They are somewhat narrow in the toe box but long in the footbed. Not terribly comfortable if you’re running around but I wouldn’t hesitate to wear them all day at work (I work in an office). 4/5
Color: LOVE LOVE LOVE the red patent leather! 5/5
Quality: I’ve worn them for a combined 24 hours so far and I think they’re Ok… the patent already has some scuffs so I don’t know how they will hold up but I would guess 3.5/5
Price: Sole Society shoes are $49.95 each but I had bought a Groupon which brought the price down to $25. Great Deal! 5/5
Overall: 4.5/5!! I can see wearing these to work, out to dinner, or to a party. They work with dresses, pants, or skirts… very versatile and sexy!

sartorial debauchery: kate spade

Dear Kate Spade designers,

Please stop making pretty clothes and shoes.

I cannot afford your clothes. They sure are pretty though. I love jackets and trench coats. Your Watercolor Rose Lauren Trench coat is gorgeous but it’s over $600. Boo.

Also, I’d like to add that this color palate is what I wore for my wedding. I am a huge black, white, pink fan. See below! Don’t get too excited through. This awesome black and white trench (from Nordstrom) belongs to my mother and she won’t let me have it. But I still have my fuchsia Tadashi dress.

I also love the tromp l’oeil valerie jacket. It is simply stunning and clever with the “deceptive” print that looks like stitching. But unless I get a huge raise at work–which is unlikely–I cannot afford you either, dear jacket.

Le sigh. the white jacket with the black blouse, dark jeans, red lipstick, and yellow necklace makes my heart flutter. I am a huge fan of the vintage/retro look. Too bad it’s so expensive… Kate Spade, please make a more affordable line and I will buy it!!! Promise!

shoedazzle wishlist

It seems that my last dozen or so posts have been about shoes. Well, I’m still on this shoe kick. I can’t get shoes off my mind…crazy me. Even though I haven’t actually made a ShoeDazzle purchase (I have bought from JustFabulous), There are many dazzling heels that I’ve been drooling over.

Here they are:

ShoeDazzle Eavan, Vogue, Iris, Dara, Cecilia

Whoo. That was a lot. I definitely have shoes on the brain and you’ll also notice a few central themes: pumps, peep toes, and all heels. At $39.95, the prices aren’t bad but ShoeDazzle is a shoe club where you basically have to make a purchase every month. Similar to JustFabulous, Sole Society, and JewelMint.

What do you think of my shoe wishlist? Have you ever tried ShoeDazzle?

plum district + sole society deal

My friend Chee from Shoe Doctor, PhD just introduced me to Plum District, a coupon site a la Groupon but marketed toward mothers. Although I am not a mother nor expecting to be anytime soon, I went ahead and made my first purchase because…drum roll please… they were offering a Sole Society deal. A pair of awesome shoes for only $25 (a $49.95 value), so obviously I had to jump on it. HURRY if you’re interested. this deal expires midnight 8/16 [tonight]!

I had blogged a little while ago about wanting the Sole Society Accent – a patent leather lipstick red peep toe stunner. Then it sold out and I was bummed. But now it’s baaaack! and IT WILL BE MINE (at a discounted price thanks to Chee. (I am a bargain shopper after all. There is no sartorial debauchery here).
