Shoes, Glorious Shoes! 30

Two blogs in one day? What is going on? Who is this girl?!

I almost considered just putting them in the same blog, given they essentially have the same story. This was the other half of the buy one, get one mentioned here. Except this was the pair I was excited about. You'll notice almost all of the shoes I buy are black & white or black & hot pink. While that might seem repetitive, that's most of my wardrobe, too. So it allows me to change the same old, same old outfits up just by switching up the shoes depending on mood.

These bad boys don't play around. I have compared them to the pink & black masterpiece you met here, but they might just have taken the prize for tallest heel. And they are DANGEROUS right now. I need to scuff the bottoms up some to give them more grip. I almost slipped and fell several times the day I wore them. Luckily, given I stay on 5"+ heels 90% of the time, I have become very skilled at regaining my balance when hitting a slick spot on the floor, uneven surface, etc. I'm sure one day that luck will run out, but until then, I am claiming it as a valuable skill. May even put it on my resume. I'd be sure to get a promotion to the top of the company simply with that change.

Review: 7" heel. Fits true to size, maybe a smidge small *insert standard long-toed ShoeDazzle disclaimer here*. This, as has become standard for me with closed-toed ShoeDazzle shoes, requires skill to get them on just right. But once I do, they're not uncomfortable.

You can pretty much tell just from this picture how tall these heels are, given my legs look 5 miles long. I *do* have long legs. But not that long. Haha

Alright kids, that does it for today. I have one more coming soon, for the pair I have on today. And then two new pair that haven't been worn yet. YAY, SHOES!

Shoes, Glorious Shoes! 29

Is it bad that you are buying shoes so often, they don't really have a story? I say, with how little I'm actually spending out of pocket each time, NO IT'S NOT! 4 pairs of shoes over two orders for under $40 is not too shabby, if you ask me.

I got this pair mainly because I needed a second pair in a buy one, get one situation. They didn't necessarily blow me away, but they were super cute, and part of Gwen Stefani's new line for ShoeDazzle, which I had been anxious to try. So into the cart they went. Now having worn them, can't really say I'll be buying any more from that line. Shoes, anyway. Maybe some purses, if I strike a deal on them.

A lot has changed in my life over the last two months. Actually, mainly just one big thing, that I might feel up to blogging about at some point, the time for that isn't right just yet. With that being said, though - I anticipate my next few posts will be fairly succinct. My brain is having a hard time maintaining focus, and being exhausted on top of that isn't helping matters. But, far be it for me to keep that from sharing my lovelies, so here you go!

Review: 4" heel. Fits... weird. Small in the toes (like pretty much ALL ShoeDazzle shoes), and the ankle straps almost made me wonder if I got a botched pair. I have pretty slender ankles, and I could barely get the ankle strap buckled. At first I thought I wasn't going to be able to get it buckled at all, but after adjusting where it hit on my ankle, managed to get it fastened on the last hole. As you can see in the above and below pictures, they're really cute. But the quality was just not there for the price (luckily I didn't pay full price).

A side view for better reference on the ankle strap. I think it's because it's cut so far in front of the heel. Think about a foot/leg actually being in there, that is extra strap that isn't accommodated for.

Yeah, you can't really see the shoes all the way, but you get the idea.

On to the next! :-D
