Shoes, Glorious Shoes! 18 & 19

I decided to do these two together because they have the same story, and are too new to have developed additional stories of their own.

All in good time, my pretty. All in good time.

So I have been a member of ShoeDazzle's VIP program for several months now, and have to say, I really like it. $9.95 a month goes into your account, and you can either spend it, or let it roll over and accumulate - and standard shipping is always free. Given that Spring's big trend are wedges, and I think wedges are hideous, my VIP total began to build quite nicely. Then I had a store credit for a pair of shoes that I received damaged - they were the last pair in my size, and I am STILL devastated - and also had a coupon for $10 off. Seemed the perfect time to lunge on both of these without having to spend a lot of money. 

At some point, I need to quit being lazy and get my closets organized so all of these can be displayed beautifully, as they deserve to be. Right now they are just in a jumbled mess on the shelves/floor of my closet. But that's a project/story for another day. Back to the shoes.

Review: 6" heel. Fits... well oddly. I'd say big is the easiest way to describe it, though there are areas that feel small, too. Maybe it's the open sides. I don't know. I don't see this being a pair I wear very often, though I DO love the look of them!

It's hard to see the heel in the pic I took above, but I bought these SPECIFICALLY because they match this skirt perfectly I mean, it is the EXACT same pattern. They'll look super cute with plenty else in my closet, but for the first wear, had to go with matchy-matchy.

Review: 6" heel. Fits true to size, but again - I have established that the ShoeDazzle pumps do not really allow for long toes like mine. I wasn't uncomfortable in them, but they DID rub a blister on the top of one of my toe by the end of the day. I didn't know it until I took them off. Which I guess isn't a bad way to get a blister. Haha But I ADORE the look of them. You can never go wrong with black lace.

Just stuck with the colors of the shoes for the outfit, and kept it simple. 

I'm going to brainstorm a way to make these pictures better where you can see the shoes and it's not so dark on the bottom. 

'Til next time...
