Shoesday Tuesday – Summer Sale

Image

Shoesday Tuesday was on summer vacation last week. But we’re back with excellent news.

As summer dwindles down and fall creeps in and pokes his head around the corner – there’s one amazing thing going on. Sales. If you aren’t on ideeli.com yet – get on it quick.

You might think that summer shoe sales consist of a whole lot of flip flops – and you’d be right – but they also hold wedges and heeled sandals that are perfect for that transition weather.

I’ve picked out my favorite 5 below. Check out these markdowns! Amazing.

Shoesday Tuesday – Walk in My Shoes

As I’ve stated too many times to count – I wear heels often. Not always, but often.

I also live in NYC. Some people see this as a disconnect – I do not. While I may have on flats today, yesterday I wore 4 inch heels from 8 am to 2 am. And last week a coworker asked me if I changed into heels when I got to work – astonished to find that I do not.

Wearing heels can be practical. You just have to wear the right heels. So let me help you out, sister. Here are some tips.

Choose a chunky heel. Not only does this make walking over subway grates easier – but it helps you balance. See some options below:

Get it: (left to right, top to bottom) Navy and Yellow Chunky Pump – $60 solesociety.com, Metallic and Lucite Chunkly Heel – $120 nastygal.com, Two Tone Toe Cap Pump – $200 jcrew.com, Cross Strap Two Tone Sandal – $80 clubcouture.cc, Metallic Pink Sandal – $81 asos.com, Floral Platform Sandal – $65 zappos.com

Choose quality brands. And by quality I don’t mean thousand dollar Louboutins. I mean affordable, well made shoes. See the below options all for under $100 by some of my favorite, comfortable brands.

Keep your feet locked in with lace up heels. The more the shoe surrounds your foot – the more stability and control you will have. Trust me. See the beauties below.

Get it: (top to bottom, right to left)  Two Tone Oxfords – $272 simplysoles.com, Cut Out Lace Up Ankle Bootie – $136 asos.com, Black Lace Up Sandal – $129 zara.com, Ankle Laced Stiletto – $88 express.com, Two Tone Suede Oxford Cut Outs – $60 solesociety.com

And finally, throw on a platform. Putting a platform at the front of your shoe lessens the actual height your heel is off the ground, keeping your instep less severe. They also happen to be “in” at the moment so you’ll have no trouble finding them.

Take it from me though – give your feet a break from time to time. All too often do I wear shoes a bit past my limit and definitely pay for it – in my knees. If you are wearing heels to work and then out at night – try switching pairs. It’ll give your feet (and knees and back) a break.

Enjoy!

Shoesday Tuesday – Teach An Old Dog New Tricks

Image

I’ve never really had too much of a prejudice against a specific type of shoe – except maybe sneakers – but, I must say that I’ve always been a little luke warm about mules.

Recently, my best friend purchased a pair for her new burlesque venture and I thought to myself – cute, pin up inspired little shoe – am I missing out?

Fast forward a couple weeks to a day of online window shopping when I stumbled upon these beauties – I had to have them.
