Show Stoppers.

When I was at Shoeffle with Corina in NOLA, we gawked at these shoes. They did not come in my size so I had to order them online! They are SO comfortable and SO cute. In the store they were nearly $100 but online at they were half the price! The flower is made of grosgrain and the heel is also similarly wrapped. Allover taupe satin.
I will look over my budget and seriously consider purchasing the wellies I posted about yesterday...thank you for your opinions!!! :D Happy Friday!!!!

Justified Purchase?

So all night long the storms woke me up because lightning would light up my entire bedroom...

Regardless, I eventually got out of bed and got dressed for work. I drove my small SUV through the storm and this is what I saw when approaching downtown...

Does this weather justify these? Probably not but I sure love Hunter Wellies....

Sigh...I guess I'll hold off on purchasing...

Out on the town sans boo boos.

Alright, who here is sick and tired of being in pain throughout the evening while wearing your "evening shoes"?! I can't stand it!! While you look fabulous standing still, everyone can't help but notice (especially if you blurt it out..) that you are in pain. Solution? Evening wedges! I will put them to the test during my summer weddings.

Lift me up, wedges.

Yes, by now I have purchased new shoes. After the big purge I even had empty space on my shelves! I went to DSW last week (typicaland spent $0. I'm serious. I went through the aisles and a few shoes caught my attention but I thought back to my challenge, and to those shoes that did not make the cut, and it made me re-think my shoe buying habits. In my head, I thought "would these be voted off?" and ended up walking out empty-handed.

About a week ago I visited Corina in N'Awlins and visited a cute boutique called Shoeffle in Covington, LA where I've been known to purchased a pair or two. I settled on two pairs in the store, one dressier wedge for Shellie's upcoming nuptials, and one summer wedge that will go with just about anything.
Here are the summer wedges:

The wedge is a little glossy, and I think made of cork, which makes them uber light and airy. The shoe is made of a shiny linen, studded to the wedge. I took the picture atop my new rug from my Ikea outting yesterday. It lives in my vanity/sink area between my closet and bathroom.

What do you think of the shoes? Has my challenge worked to only choose worthy shoes for my closet?
