T-strap peep-toe pumps

T-strap pump

Now I don’t have to gawk at these unattainable Giuseppe Zanotti pumps anymore.  Thanks to Steve Madden’s Angels pumps in a similar gorgeous style, on a budget – just the right shoes to dress up jeans and a basic top!  Also available in blush, magenta and teal.


If you adore the look of T-strap heels, how about this fancy pair with gold accent?

The essential spring boots

Posted by Sophie on March 26, 2012

Caroline from carolinesm ode.com was recently photographed wearing the Chloe Studded Booties in cream.  Definitely spring-worthy boots.  Marvelous!

I can never say no to a chic pair of studded booties, but these studded booties are well out of my price range, $1295.  Sigh.

Well, check this out!  Nasty Gal has a fantastic pair, Starburst Stud Boot for much less at $185.  A perfect complement to denim or dresses.

lace-up booties

Elongate your legs like Miranda Kerr did by teaming up skinny pants with matching high heeled booties.  She is wearing the ultra-chic Proenza Schouler lace-up booties.


I also adore these Rockport Janae Buckled Booties below.  The croco print gives this boot a rich and luxe appeal for only $160.  LOVE! Comes in a beautiful gray hue as well.

Party go-tos

satin pumps

An elegant satin pump embellished with sparkly rhinestones – Steve Madden Partyy-R.  Must-have party heels to go with your LBD or jeans. Swoon.  I’m begging for the Champagne that is versatile as a nude hue.  Get all four colors on sale here!  These are a fab, cheaper alternative to this high-end pair.

Look for Less dolce vita Koko flats

I missed out on the chance to get these pink snake-print Dolce Vita Koko flats when ideeli had them on sale few weeks back.  Bummer.  You can check out other colors here.

I was happy to see that Target has almost identical Mossimo Vilda Smoker flats in pink.  And they are only $19.99!  Can’t wait to wear them in the coming spring!  The turquoise pair will be perfect in summer.
