For this installment of "Getting to Know the Beauty Chick," I'm going to introduce you to some of the shoes/sandals I am seriously digging for these warm spring and summer months. Being only 5'4" (and some change lol), I love wearing heels to give me some added height. It is great to have some shoe options in practical shades like black, brown, and tan, but punching things up with some color is always fun and can brighten up any look. I always look for wedge heels and platforms to help lessen the painful effects higher heels can have on the feet (but, hey, sometimes beauty is pain, right?) I love going to places like DSW and Marshall's to find great deals on cute shoes. Department stores and online sites like http://www.zappos.com/, http://www.piperlime.com/, and http://www.endless.com/ are also great resources (they even carry great accessories)!
Here are a few of the shoes and sandals that have become my favorites (with a good pedicure, of course!):
AK Anne Klein Foxie Pump in Pink/Orange
(Approx. $60 on sale at Macy's last year)
For a better look at the color:Gladiator-style sandals are very "in" now. Love these for their sturdy heel and nice-size platform!
Nine West Balboa Gladiator Sandal in Black
($89 at Nine West and http://www.ninewest.com/)
Everyone needs a great neutral wedge:
Bandolino Live Free Sandal in Natural
($49.95 at DSW Shoe Warehouse)
And for a pair that is not only cute, but very comfy:
Aerosoles Peek a Bow Wedge in Coffee
(Purchased at Marshall's last year)
