Super Shoes-day!!!

I have to say June was the "Month of Shoes" for me from different brands and price points. I think there's a little something in here for everyone (including your boys and hubby's). This is picture and link heavy so I apologize if the post takes a little longer to load.

I teased you with my new TOMS that are the prettiest color of sunshine yellow with that Sperry Topsider accent.

Size 7 1/2

Nike® for J.Crew Vintage Collection Cortez® Sneakers

Size 5 1/2 (Men's), Chalk- To determine your size go down 1 and a half sizes from your normal size. I am a 7 in Women's. These come complete with the exposed foam tongue, just like back-in-the-day. The Boy saw these on the back of the catalog I had laying around and FREAKED OUT! He proceeded to beg beg BEG for these in the Anthracite (Blue/Green). He is a HUGE fan of the Nike Cortez and has several pairs in various colors. He has some all white leather and is very careful to not scuff them or get them dirty. He now asks every week or so if any new colors have come out on the J Crew site. I'll have him drinking the "crewlade" soon. Muah-ha-ha... 


Size 37
I have some Corso Como Espadrilles in red but I couldn't pass up Louboutin's on sale, in my size! I bought these at Neiman's and they had some lovely blue Gingham flats, but sadly not in my size.

Tory Burch Tevray Huarache Wedge Sandal
Size 7
Again, another Neiman's sale find, plus an additional 20% off! You may also be able to find them in black and white.

LANVIN!!! My first pair. Had I known it would come in this lovely box I would have looked for some sooner. It will be a present every time I open the box to wear the shoes.

Lanvin Black Patent Espadrille Wedge
Size 37
Loving Neiman's as these were on sale, plus the additional 20% off. I love that the jute is a darker brown, which will easily transition to fall. I've seen these floating around in a Coral/Peach color too.

Prada Pointed Toe Sling-back Pump
Size 36 1/2
Sweet baby pink Prada's!!! The pictures do not do this shoe justice regarding the color. I am not a "ballerina pink" girl but these were too beautiful to pass up. The link is to a different color on Polyvore. I'm thinking skinny jeans, a white tee and fitted motorcycle jacket with these.


Talbots times two!
Patent Leather Lucite-Heel City Sandals
Size 7
Black & Plaster - Now on sale for $44.39! The Suede in Bordeaux and Leather in Golden Haze/Yellow are just as pretty if you are put off by the "dancer-ish clear heels" and on sale too! See them on Gigi.


Size 7
Black & Warm Taupe
I didn't get the black but took this picture of them when I was in the store. I tried on the 6 1/2 and found them tight around the widest part of my foot, around the ball. The 7's were a better fit when I tried them on and 7 is my normal J Crew shoe size. I haven't worn these yet as it's just too hot for anything but sandals. They also come in Pale Peacock, Dusty Clay and Brick Red.

Warm Taupe

Here is the color comparison with my Ann Taylor Perfect Pump in Porcini. Those are patent and a little more on the gray side.

J Crew Mona Suede Pumps
Size 7
Wild Berry
Y'all know I love me some J Crew Wild Berry so I had to see these IRL, EVEN THOUGH I also have the Cece Suede Ballet Flats in the same color. They also come in Black, Burnt Sienna, and Slate. I won't be purchasing the other colors and here's why. I am not a fan of Black suede. I prefer Black in patent. The Burnt Sienna is about the same color as the Julienne's I found on ebay. And I have the Coddington in Cobblestone.

Cece Suede Ballet Flats
Size 7
Wild Berry
I have seen the Sapphire & Tropical Green IRL and they are true to the color online.

Now, do I keep the Mona and exchange the Cece for another color like the Sapphire or Tropical Green? Or do I keep both in the same color? I will certainly wear the flats more but the heels will be great for that little POP for Girls Night Out or Date Night. I'm still debating that one.

OK...so that's "Super Shoes-day". I hope you enjoyed it.

Have a great evening!

  3. Gorgeous!! Those Lanvins...drool. I say keep both heels and flats, if that's the color you love. You'll wear them both so differently. ;)

  4. Oh the Lanvins and the Louboutins ... drool ... and I am a sucker for a good espadrille!

    As for the Toms, do you find the flats fit larger than the wedges? I went up 1/2 size in the wedges for comfort but haven't tried the flats yet, but there are a few pairs I am eyeballing ...

  5. Keep the wild berry heels and exchange the flats. That wild berry is so pretty on you. Great Lanvin box and I love the shoes.
