Shoe Shopping Adventures

I will be the first to admit, I've never been much of a shoe girl.  I have realized that no matter how many pairs of shoes I have, I will gravitate toward the same few pairs all season.  In the summer, I wear my Jacks out.  I have really been trying to look more professional at work, and I broke down and started wearing heels at least three times a week.  This became an issue because I only had two pairs of heels I was wearing - a black Jessica Simpson wedge that I bought when I was 17 & a taupe, peep-toe Jessica Simpson wedge.  

This weekend, I went to Dillard's hell bent on purchasing these adorable Antonio Melani heels.  However, they looked HORRIBLE on my skin.  And I felt like I looked like an ostrich in them.

After prowling around the store for over an hour, I ended up leaving with these Isola beauties.  I love the tortoise shell-esque pattern, and I think the chunky heel is kind of fun.

My next purchase?  These Vince Camuto sling backs!   If it had been in my budget, I would have purchased them the day of.  Sadly, I will have to wait until next pay check, but I am already dreaming up all of the ways that I can wear them.

Also, I just want to give a big shout out to Pierson in the shoe department of the Dillard's in Knoxville's West Towne Mall.  I have honestly been wearing the wrong shoe size for my entire life, and I didn't know that until he explained that to me and what I should look for in a shoe.  He is amazing at what he does.

What about y'all - are you a shoe girl?  What shoes are at the top of your list for fall?

Happy Wednesday!

  1. You'd be wearing the wrong size?? Tell me more about how they re-sized you! I own so many shoes but I tend to gravitate towards the same colors over and over again. I'm trying to branch out because there are only so many pairs of black shoes one can own.

    1. Apparently I've been wearing a size too big! I have a narrow foot and a high arch, I guess the arch of the shoes I've been wearing wasn't in the proper spot because of the incorrect size. My toes were definitely pinched in the pair that I bought, but I'm hoping it will loosen up a bit once I get them broken in. If not, I'm just going to return them.

  2. I am a heel girl ever since I got my first pair of heels. Those Isola are gorgeous SS. Love the complete look, the heel, the tortoise thingy, everything. Gorgeous. I also love the sling backs. Great buy SS.

    1. I wish I had it in me, Lenya! I just don't work the heels like you do!!

  3. Love the sling backs - perfect for fall!

    1. thank you! Can't wait until they're mine!

  4. loving all of these shoe picks! that tortoise shell print will go with so much & those sling backs are precious!
