Looking for something to dazzle up your special night? This shoe may be the right one for you – Tamra by Bakers. This snake embossed leather sandal is highlighted with charming multi-colored jewels. The jewels also are cut in different sizes so that they give extra spark. Although this sandal comes only in silver, the style and color will match many evening dresses – from that little black dress to that shimmery cocktail dress.

It is available from sizes 5 1/2 – 7 1/2 but it surprisingly comes small so even those who wear small sizes may find this sandal a perfect fit for them. Most importantly, the price has been reduced to just $29.99.

I had been eying on this for months and almost lost hope on it. I did not want to buy it then since the price was a bit too much for me. I was so thrilled when it finally went on sale!


Red Shoes to Rave About November 3, 2009

BAKERSAfter raving about those red shoes made by top designers to re-create Dorothy’s iconic red slippers, I could not help searching the Internet to find red shoes that are as attractive yet, reasonably affordable. Since BAKERS is one of my favorite stores to browse footwear, I checked their website and found these equally adorable shoes but for so much less.

These enticing satin peep-toe pumps will give every woman that alluring, feminine look for special occasions and formal events.  The wrapped ruffle decor accentuates the overall look of the shoes giving the feet an extra arch while the four-and-a-half inch heels give every woman the extra lift. This minimal yet sophisticated design reminds us that there is so much beauty in simple elegance.Plus, fashion doesn’t have to be expensive.

Dorothy’s flashy red slippers may be iconic but these shoes are a reason enough to make Dorothy wish she lived in the 21st century!


Slither Boot by Christian Siriano for Payless October 28, 2009

PaylessWhen I went to the mall a few days ago, I was amazed to find eye-catching shoes at Payless Shoe Source.  I found out that Christian Siriano, winner of Project Runway’s fourth season has collaborated with Payless to market his shoes and bags. Although, I found all of his shoes trendy,  a pair of ankle boots in printed satin stood out. I  like teal and gold together but I never thought teal and bronze looked good as well. Until now.

This pair promises comfort with its satin lining and padded insole. However,  if you are like me who prefer cuteness over comfort, this pair will certainly give you the look you want. Round toe, with its cone heels and bronze zipper accentuated with a bronze cone pull, what else could you ask for? Not only will these ankle boots be a good show off this fall but also give a flashy color to dull winter. Pair with dark skinny jeans, black leggings, or a nice dress, these boots will surely catch some attention.

Personally, I like the shoes. Would I buy them? Sure. Selling at $49.99, they may cost more than most shoes at Payless but with Christian Siriano’s promising career – working with top designers like Alexander McQueen, his designs are bound to get more expensive. He could be the next Michael Kors for all we know. Plus, this is a good and cheaper way of having that top fashion experience.
