I have a true passion for shoes. I definitely have a collection. They are wonderful pieces of architecture as well as fashionable staples. A shoe can make or break an outfit, without a doubt.
Last week all the stars must have aligned because in 7 days, I wound up with 3 new pairs. I know my mom reads my blog, so I say this for her and for concerned readers everywhere who might assume I have lost my mind or won the lottery and failed to mention it: These shoes were all fantastic bargains. I love bargain hunting just as much if not more than I love my shoes. So with that being said, let me walk you through these new additions to my collection:
Green Zara Lined Wedge : these beauties are a lovely shade of green and oh so comfy. Plus, I think Zara is very affordable. Bought these full price and am wearing them now (worth every penny!).
I've had a shoe crush on Charlotte Olympia for a while now. It has been a dream to own a pair of her gorgeous, luxury shoes. Well on Friday, a trip to Nordstrom Rack and some gift cards from the Easter bunny helped make this dream a reality. These pumps are 6 inches high, emerald green, velvet, dotted, and just my size. The web detail on the shoe bottom is too cute. These are stunners that are a worthy investment at a fraction of the cost. These shoes retailed for $895 and boy do they look it!
I had seen these Sam Edelman shoes at Nordstrom but then saw the price and decided to wait for them to go on sale. Well I never saw them on sale at Nordstrom and completely forgot about them until I saw these replicas at Kohl's. I almost bought them, but something inside of me just couldn't. I still had hope that I would find Sam's version out there. And yesterday I grabbed up the last pair at another Nordstrom Rack. They were $100 cheaper than the original sticker price. I couldn't pass them up. The description on the Sam Edelman website reads that these shoes will help "keep him in line." I love shoes with a sense of humor.
And speaking of sense of humor, my boyfriend's wonderful, sweet parents got me this Scotch tape dispenser shaped like a shoe. It's the perfect gift! It's on my desk right now and I don't know how my office survived without it.
Here's to a week of walking in style! Happy shopping/bargain hunting : )
