Open Toe Booties Under $100

Shoe Trend Alert

For the past week or so I’ve been on the hunt for a perfect pair of shoes. I wanted an open toe bootie to welcome in the warmer weather that has been approaching. I was looking for something specific, nothing too high, comfortable, something I can dress up for a night out on the town, or dress down with a pair of jeans. As I was window shopping online I fell in love with Madden Girl Platform Booties on the DSW website. I love the slouchy front, the thicker heal and the platform front.maddenbootie

After going to all the DSWs (the store didn’t carry this shoe), Marshalls and TJ Max in my area looking for something similar, I didn’t really find anything that suited me. DSW has some great shoes on sale though, I found a pair of Michael Kors heels that were marked down 70%! Although they were so fierce, it was still not what I was looking for.

In the end I decided to just order directly from the DSW website the Madden pair that initially caught my eye.

But, while on this mission for the perfect shoe I noticed Continue reading

Cute little number I would wear as a birthday outfit.  Still kind of cold here in Chicago so all this would be required.

We Gonna Party Like It’s Your Birthday

One of my best friend’s and lush360 counterparts birthday is coming up! What does this mean? An excuse to go out and party like it’s 1999! For those of us who have little ones at home and going out is a rare occasion, can really understand my excitement! So while the event is still about 2 weeks away, the online window shopping and the “what are you going to wear” discussions begin. You all know what I’m talking about ladies!

While I tell myself I am not going to buy anything new and just wear what I have in my closet… I can’t help but browse!
Out On The Town

Save Your Shoes & $$$

I know that after spending the amount of money that I do on shoes, I want to keep them nice and new forever.  I got a great pair of boots from Macy’s in December. When I was in Vegas this past February, the Bellagio escalator ate the rubber part at the bottom of my heel (I guess these are technically called heel taps?).  If I was an impulse buyer with money to blow, I would’ve bought a new pair of boots; however  I don’t have the mula to do that, so I called on Phil the Shoe Repairman!

With the economy right now, the shoe repair business is BOOMING and why wouldn’t it be?  Many of the shoes you wear to work are classic styles that you continue to wear for a good amount of time.  Its really unnecessary to buy NEW shoes when your old/current ones can be fixed at a WAY lower rate.

It will cost about $12.00 to have my shoes fixed versus the $85.00-$90.00 I would have to pay for NEW knee high boots.    You can find shoe repairmen/women in your area by searching the index in your local phone book or of course by googling it here on the web.

Take a look in your closet to see what shoes you can revive.  It is worth it!

BOOTIE CALL!

NO, NO, NO, not that kind of bootie call, put your cell phone away! Finally our obsession with stylish boots for the winter season can be transitioned into the spring and fall months. With the unveiling of the bootie in spring of 2008, this year’s fashion week reveals the cutout bootie is here to stay for yet another year. So if you missed out last year get your pair for your spring wardrobe today.

Cutout booties are high-coverage booties but with the freedom of a sandal. Whether revealing the heel, open toe, cutout sides it’s a multi-seasonal bootie to instantly sexify your outfit!

Here are my favorites that I’d pair with skinny jeans, shorts or a cute dress. Even though I have Don Périon taste I can really only afford a case of Coronas. 🙂 bootie_call
