You Choose the Shoes – Week 22

Shop For Jewelry, Clothing And More To Support Autism Research!

Hello friends,

welcome to week 22 of “You Choose the Shoes“.  Next Saturday I begin the dreaded task of cleaning out closets, donating items that I no longer want or fit and of course changing out the summer shoes for fall and winter ones.  I have already started wearing a few pairs as evidenced by today’s contest, but before we begin, let’s see who last week’s winner was:

Ladies and Gentlemen, for the 2nd time this season, the DSW Polka Dot Peep Toes Win!!!!

WINNER WEEK 22

Thank you all for your votes and of course your comments, I always love reading what you have to say.  Now for this week the contest is between Suede and Snakeskin pumps, two of my favorite fall shoes.

suede vs snakeskin pumps

The Chinese Laundry Suede pumps are another purchase from DSW, and the faux Snakeskin pumps are from Target.  The leopard print insoles are from Dollar Tree. Chinese Laundry pumps

 

I purchased these Chinese Laundry pumps several years ago, I love the tie accent in the back.

This skirt is from Spiegel and top was purchased from Marshall’s also several years ago.

Pattern mixing with these faux Snakeskin pumps which were part of a major shoe haul from Target.

Okay, so which pair do you like better with the top, because the skirt is so neutral, any shoe would work with it.

Will it be the Snakeskin, OR

you choose the shoes

Will it be the suede?

This is an interchangeable Miche’ purse which I ordered from a rep at a holiday Open House a few years ago, as a matter of fact  most of my outfit is at least 2 years old.  I haven’t bought too many new items this year thanks to Malik’s High School graduation party and college tuitions!

Have you made a decision yet?

You Choose the Shoes | OOTD

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

I love the Spring and Summer seasons, not only because of the warmer weather but because of the shoes!  Sandals and open-toes are my favorites, but wedges, platforms, kitten heels, high heels, pumps, flats, it doesn’t matter, I wear them all.  

I know that I’m not alone when I say, “I LOVE Shoes“.  I’ve been known to purchase 3 different pairs all at the same time…all on the same day… AND all at the same store ~ I LOVE Shoes! Unfortunately, having only one pair of feet can cause a dilemma, the decision on which pair to wear for a particular outfit can be frustrating.  

This new blog feature, “You Choose the Shoes” is helping me by giving you an opportunity to choose the pair of shoes that I’ll wear with a particular outfit of the day.  

Okay, for this outfit which pair should I wear?

The Polka Dot sleeveless tank was thrifted from Goodwill and red Capri pants were on clearance at JC Penney?

So which one did you choose?

OOTD – Fall Back Monday

Hello Friends and Happy Monday

After a wonderfully warm weekend the temperatures have reversed course and fallen back into Autumn, dropping down into the 30’s and 40’s!  Yesterday I was in shorts preparing for the pool opening and today I am wearing fall clothing – this is crazy.  The forecast calls for 80 degrees by Thursday so  we will be going from sweaters to sleeveless tanks in less than a week, I don’t remember Spring temps being up and down like this – do you?

Hubby's DSW Deal

Hubby needed a new pair of shoes which he doesn’t buy on a regular but when he does he needs them to be comfortable vs stylish. Today he was able to find both a DSW, he purchased two pairs of Cole Hann for $99.00 each. Hopefully this purchase will generate another $10.00 Rewards coupon for me to use!

Cole Haan Zeno Lace II – Black

Cole Haan Zeno Slipon – Tortoise

Hubby styling and profiling his new kicks!

St. Patty's Day Shopping

Today is St. Patrick’s Day and the last weekend of Winter 2012. The weather was gorgeous and it was a perfectly lucky Saturday to be out walking and spending a little green. My first stop was at DSW where there are aisles and aisles of beautiful shoes, I tried on several pairs before settling on the Polka Dot Madden Girl heels. I used my DSW $100 Gift Card and with my $10.00 off coupon they were $29.99. Along the front wall there are several tables of clearance purses, hats and cosmetic bags and I got the poppie jones clutch for $14.00.

I walked next door to Old Navy a store that I don’t normally shop and even though they had a nice selection of maxi dresses and colorful tops I didn’t see anything until I was on the way out. There are several clearance racks throughout the store and I saw one that had this wrap dress for $14.99, it also came in black.

Last stop was to Joann Fabric, as usual they were having a sale, 30% off lawn and garden items and 25% off handbag supplies and fabric swatches. I also had a 20% off coupon so I saved over $10.00 on my Clutch Purse supplies.

Department Store Deals

Today’s “staycation” day was spent shopping with my sons. Our first stop was Burlington Coat Factory, my son found a few vests on sale for $15.99, he is attending a Sweet 16 party tonight. I found yet another pair of black heels for $9.99, two dresses for under $20 and two tops under $10.00.

Our next stop was to DSW, I got a $100. gift card from hubby on Valentine’s Day. I saw a few pair that I really liked but am waiting on the Spring styles, however, I did find these on clearance for $20.00.

Last stop was to Boscov’s where I purchased several “As seen on TV” products including the new Lint Lizard, I have a fear of the dryer catching on fire. I also found nail decals similar to Sally Hansen’s on sale for .99cent, regularly $2.99.
