You Choose the Shoes – Week 20

Hello friends,


I hope all is well in your world.  I am slowly but surely getting adjusted to having only one son at home with Malik now away at college.  He seems to be doing well, last week I received a few text messages and 1 phone call!  I can now fully appreciate the “call your mom” statement.


Thank you all for the votes last week, it was a close race but the winner squeaked by and it was the NO Bow Dollhouse beige wedges.



This week you will be choosing between high and low, as in flats versus heels.

Heels vs Flats

These gorgeous heels were actually given to me from fellow blogger, Nout over at SandpaperKisses and when I saw them I was blown away in love!  If you get a chance go over to her place and show her some bloggy love – she is just too adorable!

Not only were these shoes a perfect fit, but the platform in the front made them uber comfortable.  Now they may not seem as comfortable as a their contenders, these well-worn pair of color block flats purchased from CitiTrends.

These ballerina flats are also very comfy, but for only a short period of time.  I need arch support so I find wearing flats for long period of time uncomfortable.  

How about you, can you wear flats without discomfort?

Ultimate Outlet

*This post was written by me on behalf of the Ultimate Outlet.  I did not receive compensation nor a product to review.  All opinions are 100% mine.


Have you seen that television commercial that shows several office workers “oohing” and “aahing” while looking at shoes on their computer screen? Well my co-worker and I had a similar reaction while checking out clothing at the online store Ultimate Outlet.

Ultimate Outlet is Spiegel’s online website that features clothing and accessories from Newport News and ShapeFX, a brand often worn by talk show hostess Wendy Williams.  The Ultimate Outlethas clothing, swimwear, lingerie, and accessories some priced as low as $5.00!

Many of the items are limited in their availability of sizes but I was able to find two Pencil Skirts for $8.00 each and after receiving a ‘first time shopper’ discount of $10.40, my total was only $5.60! #winning



The shipping of $6.94, was more than the total purchase price but I still got a bargain at $12.54.  I can’t wait to receive the skirts and then do an OOTD review post.  If you get a chance check them out and let me know what you think.
