early Valentine’s dinner outfit

No manic monday shoe post today. Although I did wear an awesome pair of heels over the weekend that I wanted to share.

Hubby and I went out to an early Valentine’s dinner with my wonderful in-laws and we had a blast. Us girls got dressed up. I even straightened my hair!

Here’s what I wore:

review: justfabulous makeeda

So my latest JustFab purchased happened when I forgot to ‘skip the month’ in December and wound up with a credit. Shoe clubs such as JustFab are great, you just have to be sure and ‘skip’ if you don’t want to make a monthly purchase.

Oh well, that’s no one’s fault but my own and the good news is I wound up with a great pair of edgy high heels, Makeeda. Plus these beauties are a Christian Louboutin Clou Noeud look-alike at a much better price- only $39.95. I would normally not even give shoes with studs a second glance (normally not my thing) but I saw a blog post about them that my friend Chee at the Shoe Doctor, PhD wrote. I really liked the way Makeeda looked on her. Plus the fact that I LOVE red heels, peep toes, and bows helped too ;-P

here’s my in depth review:

Style: I really love the peep toe, the red faux leather and the studs. But the whole style is elevated a couple of levels (for me) because of the cool modern bow. I love the bow. And the fact that it’s a slingback pump helps too. 5/5.

Fit: I have wide feet and I usually wear a size 9. I ordered the 9 and it fits pretty well. You can tell that I have wide feet in the pictures but oh well, that’s expected with wide feet. There are is some very minor rubbing of my second to smallest toe but it’s not bad enough to blister. I wore them all day at work and they were pretty  comfortable! I do sit at a desk all day but the little walking around I did, I didn’t want to take them off for relief. 4/5.

Color: Love the red:-) 5/5.

Quality: I would say for the price [39.95], the quality is not bad. Makeeda is made of faux leather. The insoles are peeling a little but but nothing that a little glue can’t fix. Not sure about the quality right now because I’ve only worn her a few times but I think if you take care of these heels, they could last. 3.5/5.

Price: not bad at under $40. 5/5.

Overall: I got so many complements wearing these today! They are cute and fairly comfortable – 4.5/5.

november sole society pick

Sole Society’s November shoes are out and unlike last month, I don’t have a buzzilion shoes that I like {which is for the best. I don’t need too many distractions and temptations}. This month, only one shoe has caught my eye. And she is the Marco Santi Mina Mary Jane Platform. And what a beauty she is. Most Sole Society shoes are $49.95, as is Mina.

As you most likely already gathered, I am a shoe-a-holic that’s obsessed with red shoes and mary jane heels. These Mina heels both but also come in black and navy. They are made of fabric {with gold accents} and it appears that the mary jane strap can be moved back toward the heel of the shoe so you can wear them like platform pumps instead of just  mary janes.


Thoughts on these babies?

Another budget find…

My friend The Shoe Doctor pointed the Kelsi Dagger Tildia out and instantly I was smitten (the bow, the color blocking, the t-strap, I drooool). The price tag, however, did not impress me. At $129, these adorable t-strap pumps were out of my price range.

Enter the Penny Loves Kenny Malha red bow t-strap pump. Almost identical, same look but different colors…and most importantly, available in RED (you know how I feel about red shoes)! DSW.com has the Malha for under $70! Plus get on their email list and become a rewards member for even bigger savings.

Another post about shoes? Hello, my name is Nout, and I’m a shoe-a-holic.

I recently started browsing JC Penney’s online shoe selection and came upon these cute red peep toe bow pumps…

If you’re a Sole Society fan, these Cupcake pumps should look familiar…

Uncanny resemblance. The Olsenboye Cupcake from JC Penney is $40 right now (if you like them, get on the jcpenney.com email list, they’ll send you coupons!). $40 for this Sole Society look-alike which is normally $50? Not too bad!

What do you think of these sole sisters?
