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. 😉
