I love quirky prints. I’ve been seeing some citrus or lemon printed clothes that I really loved. Well I was ordering some underwear online from Victoria’s Secret, saw this lemon print blouse, and couldn’t resist. (Plus I had a coupon!). I was going for an easy breezy outfit so I paired my loose blouse with a pair of flared jeans and heels.

What do you think of quirky prints like this one?

I felt very retro 70s wearing this outfit. Except my hair. My hair will always scream 80s no matter what I do. BTW I got my hair “did” last week – I had it dyed a shade or 2 darker plus a trim. I love having dark hair, it always seems shinier.

HAPPY FRIDAY – hope you all have a fantastic weekend! We’ll be celebrating hubby’s 32nd birthday this Saturday with beer, pizza, and ice cream cake (cheat day, obviously:-P).

I am so excited that I FINALLY thrifted a chambray shirt (I have a denim one too but I was looking for a lighter weight shirt). I decided to wear it for the first time yesterday with my green skinny jeans + a tank top.

Ever wanted to change up your heels without buying a whole new pair? Me too. That’s why I was excited to try High Pheels when I was approached by one of the company founders. He was very nice and open to ideas and recommendations.

The idea behind High Pheels (pronounced Peels) is that you can take one pair of platform pumps and change them up with these multi-colors, multi-print shoe covers.

I liked the newsprint pattern, and I LOVED the idea so I though I’d give it a try. here are some of my opinions on High Pheels:

Pros:
-inexpensive way to chance up your heels ($19.99/pair)
-many different colors and prints
-easy to use
-hand washable
-can make the inside of your shoes more comfortable

Cons:
-didn’t fit my heels perfectly
-might not be great for wide feet
-only works with platform pumps (I only have 1 pair that meet this criterion)

My Recommendations:
Design:
-I’d like to see more prints such as nautical stripes, large polka dots, small polka dots, and others
-I’d like to see add-ons such as bows and flowers
Functionality:
-I’d like the High Pheels to fit my shoe better by having more black fabric and more side fabric.
-I’d possibly like the fabric to be more opaque

The Bottom Line on High Pheels:
-Anthony from High Pheels mentioned they are working on a proprietary pump that would fit the High Pheels perfectly, which makes me more likely to recommend their product since you’d have a guarantee that they would fit
-worth a try if you have narrow, small feet. Even though they sent me the size that should have fit my feet, the High Pheels seemed too tight and narrow.
-I wasn’t able to get them to work on my pumps but a) I only have 1 pair that would work with the Pheels and b) I have wide, large feet
-I really like the idea of High Pheels!

***I received a complimentary pair of High Pheels but all opinions are my own. Other than the complimentary product, I was not compensated for this post.
