Hey there, Shoes-day Tuesday does exist!
Today I’m featuring a shoe every woman needs: the red pump. I was without this much-needed shoe for several months since I went on a shoe purging spree and threw these red pumps away (they lost the rubber heel stop). So when Zach and I visited the Gilroy Outlets after Thanksgiving, I honed in on Nine West for some classic, easy, every day type red heels. Seek and you shall find:
These are a 7.5 and run true to size (as do most Nine West shoes, I’ve found). The 3.5″ heel makes them quite comfortable for a 9+ hour day as well. As for cost, because of the sales, I don’t quite remember, but I want to say I got them for about $50. This style goes on sale quite a bit, so it’s pretty easy to avoid the $89 price tag if you keep your eyes peeled.
This is a way I’ve worn the shoes to work (black Limited pants, striped Gap sweater):
And on another note, I picked up a new scent. I really wanted to get the Hanae Mori again (I’m nearly out), but Zach convinced me to get something new. So I returned to Burberry Brit, though this time I got Sheer. It’s slightly more floral than I’d normal get, but it’s fun and good for daily wear.
Favorite color for a heel? I have to say red or nude
Favorite scent? Vanilla, without a doubt
How long has it been since I’ve done a Shoes-day Tuesday post? Too long. Pretty sure I said that the last time I did one too. Apparently I need some new writing material so I’m not repeating myself.
Anyway, Tuesdays are a rather ho-hum day so it’s always fun to spice it up with a new pair of shoes, right?
It’s also fun to spice up an otherwise boring outfit with a patterned shoe, right?
Case in point
Black Limited pants, pink BCBG cap-sleeve sweater, NY&Co long necklace. Basic. Work appropriate. And dare I say, boring!
Enter in fun shoes:
Thanks to Shop It To Me, these popped up in one of my Sunday personal shopping emails. The $39 price tag made them a must buy (on sale from $79). Nine West has been having fantastic sales on many of their shoe styles including this one, the Rocha. I just got rid of my nude Nine West that were also Rocha and wore them into the ground.
And the added bonus is that these remind me a lot of a patterned pair of blue/grey/purple Nine West pumps I had about 8 years ago that I still miss!
Now I just need a new pair of shoes to jazz up my Wednesday…ha!
Are you a fan of the patterned or multi-color shoe?
What would make your Tuesday (or soon to be Wednesday) better? I’d like a big ol’ piece of vanilla cake with a light layer of vanilla frosting and sprinkles. Random I know. But I want it.
PS Thank you for your kind words on my blonde hair. I’m getting more used to it each day
