The Gales of November
Well I did
not get these only in November, but I felt for the time of year it is, it was a
good fit for the title.
Here in Minnesota, the great lake, Lake Superior
can have some brutal storms. I personally have never seen one, but then again
from what I have heard I am not sure I really want to.
We visit the north shore every year at the end
of October. We do some sightseeing, have some fun relaxing in a very nice hotel
room, misbehave a little and just enjoy the sights. Most of the time, the
weather is enjoyable too. Only once have we had bad weather and that was not
even all bad; just some drizzle and clouds a bit of wind. All that will just keep
you closer to the room with a fire going.
My last purchases from DSW had several returns.
I tried a few new brands and found not to have a lot of luck with the fit. I
did however find some great deals.
As the cold weather approaches, I get lucky enough to have some of the styles I
am less interested in get discounted and find that the price now reflects what
I would pay to have something I would find myself less likely to wear. Ok, in
all reality we all do not wear every item we have very often and in my case
probably even less.
So on with the shoes:
Steve Madden Purple and Grey Mary Jane:
I love this pump. The material they used is rather stiff and it was just a little snug in the toe box area. They have different color combinations as well. These went back.
Cork look open toe sling back sandal by Fioni:
I will say I do not care for the brand. Most of the time they do not fit well and are cheap. These I got from eBay this summer and it has taken awhile for me to phtograph them. They are comfortable but they are made from cheap material. They will serve as a good running around
heel. I do not expect them to last long.
Jessica Simpson open toe suede pump:
You have seen variations of this particular shoe. I have three to be exact. I just love these so I often get the colors I like the most. Nothing more to say about that.
Steve Madden sparkly open toe chunk heel:
These were the most spontaneous buy yet. I walked in to exchange a pair that did not fit, saw these and grabbed my size. In and out in about four minutes. The perfect holiday shoe. I hope to be daring enough to wear these out around the holidays.
Steve Madden chunky open toe pump:
Just another color variation of the ones above. I love dark maroon.
Steve Madden covered wedge:
I have these in two color variations. The other I am saving for another post. Very sleek and sexy looking wedge.
SE Boutique open toe pump with embellished heel:
I have these in a pewter color as well. From the day these first came out, I have wanted the black ones. I only was fortunate enough to get these nude pair and the pewter pair. They are great looking heels!
Steven Madden suede chunky heel ankle strap pump:
These have a double stitched semi-squared toe. I have them in the black and a taupe. They are extremely comfortable and a must for the fall winter season.
I have made a bunch of acquisitions since my last post, as you can see. I am still working on the requests I have received. Along those lines, I am looking for suggestions on my shoe selecting for my next outing. That might be this coming Saturday so I would love to get some feedback to plan.
Thank you all again for the time you take to follow and comment on my blog. I am very appreciative.
