Hi-ho, hi-ho…

November 28, 2007

It’s off to work we go!

It’s winter here in America and if you live in any type of urban or metropolitan area, chances are good that you, or someone you know, use public transportation. I have a very good friend who buses to the middle of Seattle, then walks blocks and blocks to her high-rise office building. It all sounds well and good until you hear her ultimate downfall: she’s obsessed with hot shoes.

Why is this a problem? Well, no one in their self-loving right mind would feel comfortable (literally!) with walking 6 blocks in 3.5″ heels… So what’s a shoe-phile to do? The ultimate goal is either to a) find cute flats that are just as walkable as the are adorable, or b) wear sneakers with a skirt (EW!) and store your cute shoes in your bag until you hit the office.

No one who reads this blog should think B is a good option. If you do, you just learned something! 😉
American Eagle Mary Jane Flat

The American Eagle Mary Jane Flat would easily take you from the bus, to the streets, to the office. Especially since they’ll only set you back Stick them at the bottoms of grey tights and a cotton dress – it might sound like you’ll feel four years old, but trust me – it’s better! They’d also be just as cute beneath some slim trousers or straight leg jeans!

Lela Rose for Payless Addle Hill Flat

Are you into the menswear craze sweeping the world? Check out the Lela Rose for Payless Addle Hill Flat
which, with it’s pointed toe and patent ribbon, add some charm to these unique flats. Unless you’re daring, or some kind of genius – I’d just stick to wearing these with full-length pants… But the cut/color/style is up to you! God a wild streak? These come in fire-engine red, too! Why not grab both – they’re only $25! If you catch ’em on sale, you only pay $17!

There are some ideas to get you started. Also, if you are the heels-in-the-bag type of girl… Maybe you can get a pair of those flats for a steal, then hide these in your bag!:

Runner Up – Black Bootie

So many options, so little feet!



The Joys of a Tuesday!

November 28, 2007

These are Hot Kiss “Cameron” boots from Famous Footwear. Also – since I bought my boyfriend some hot shoes, too… Mine were half off because of their “BOGO”-style sale, weighing in at $22!

Beautiful payday was yesterday, providing me with enough money for Christmas gifts… As well as my annual Christmas gift – for myself. I’m donning these beauties today:

They’re Hot Kiss’ “Cameron” Boot from Famous Footwear. The best part? They were only about $22!! I know! Famous Footwear is having a delicious post-Turkey-day sale where, after you buy one pair of [well priced…] shoes at full price, you get the second pair half off! I suppose they call that “BOGO” or something, yes? I bought my boyfriend a pair of hot Sketchers’ Urban Cleats (I was impressed, since I wore Sketchers in Jr. High!) and so I got my little babies for cheap!

I’m extremely happy with my purchase. I’ve worn them since approximately 10am (it’s now 6pm) and I’m not dying, my feet aren’t screaming… They’re wonderful!

Everyone ought to buy themselves a Christmas present, I think… We spend the most time with ourselves, and it’s important to appreciate the things we do. Here are some reasons to celebrate yourself this Christmas:

  • Eating healthy, indulging every so often…
  • Going to school, work, or whatever it is that you do to sustain yourself.
  • Hitting the hottest concert and treating your ears to something you love.
  • Appreciating the environment and recycling, eating organic, or using sustainable products in your home.
  • Donating some green, time, or energy to a non-profit organization.

These are all great ways that you take care of yourself every year, so you ought to be treated well by the most important person… Yourself!

Enjoy, my lovelies!


"Oh, this ol’ thing? It’s just Vera Wang…"

November 25, 2007

That’s the line that runs through my head every time I think about Simply Vera, the namesake’s clothing line for Kohl’s. Now we can all have a little Vera in our lives for a fraction of the cost! Check out some of the sweet deals I found:

Simply Vera Vera Wang Tie-Waist Floral Brocade Skirt. How cute is this? And for only $34, who could resist? Brocade is becoming super-hot lately in fashion, this piece is definitely a pick-up must!

Simply Vera Vera Wang Self Belt Top. Love the color, love the belt, love the sleeves… Love the price at $24.

Simply Vera Vera Wang Framed Hobo. I don’t really understand “framed hobo” (seems like an oxymoron) but this bag is adorable. It clocks in at a bit more ($55.20) but at 11″ x 10″, it’s worth it.

Snatch ’em up before they’re all gone!
