The Gales of November

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. πŸ˜‰

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. πŸ˜‰

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:

Β 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

Β heel. I do not expect them to last long. πŸ˜‰

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. πŸ˜‰

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. πŸ˜‰

Steve Madden chunky open toe pump:

Just another color variation of the ones above. I love dark maroon. πŸ˜‰

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. πŸ˜‰

  1. Good selections. I like quite a few pair of those! Looking at your Steve Madden’s made me think about my new purchase. I took your advice on the leopard booties and purchased a cute Steve Madden bootie. I don’t usually buy Steve Madden because for what ever reason they don’t fit me right and luckily this pair did. They are super high though and I feel about 6’2 in them…lol not that I mind! Thanks for the advice and always stopping by.

    • I am glad to hear I have been able to offer a good piece of advice. I am excited to see your purchase and wonderful you make them look.
      Thank you for stopping by again. πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your wonderful comment.
      I am with you on the sparkly Steve Maddens. I am really trying to pull my confidence together and wear these out soon. They are also available in a light gold. πŸ˜‰
      Stop by again soon. πŸ˜‰

  2. Again, wonderful shoe collection. I really liked the Steve Madden covered wedge – they are very simple but very sexy. And of course I love the nude spiked ones! =D It’s been awhile, nice to see you back!

    • Roxanne,
      Thank you for stopping by. I have been preoccupied with.., life. πŸ˜‰
      I always appreciate your visits. Thank you for the wonderful comments. I hope you enjoy your weekend and see you again soon. πŸ˜‰

  3. I’m looooving the Steve Madden’s at the end, the suede pumps! My only issue is the ankle strap. That chops my petite legs right down! Other than that, I feel like I need them in my life πŸ™‚

    • Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. Those SM heels are fantastic. The ankle strap is removable so they would work out for you without a problem. πŸ˜‰
      Please come back again. πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you for the comments and for stopping by. I have mentioned this before, but I really hope I get up the nerve to wear the glitter ones. I have some other glittery heels and want to be able to show them all off.
      Always a pleasure to see your visits. See you again soon. πŸ˜‰

    • I agree, I think it has to do with the holidays and the approach of the New Year. In any event, these heels are awesome!
      Thank you again for stopping by. You are always welcome. πŸ˜‰

  4. …and I thought I had a killer collection of shoes. Just took a walk through your blog and I am loving some of the shoes you showcased. I am definitely coming back to see what else you add to your collection.

    • Thank you for stopping by and viewing my blog. You are most welcome to do so often.
      I try to stay as fashionable as I can. I am always willing to hear some tips / ideas on keeping up on it.

      See you again soon. πŸ˜‰

    • Edita,
      Thank you for the nice words. Your wish will come true. At one point you will have more and better shoes than I. πŸ˜‰
      I look forward to seeing you again soon. πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you for stopping by my blog.
      I do really like the first “Colourful ones” as well. They were just a little tight for me.
      I would love to win a dress but I do not think I would fit in a dress that fits you. πŸ˜‰
      Hope to see you again soon. πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you for the visit and the wonderful comment. They are on clearance at DSW right now. Real leather uppers; very nice shoe.
      I look forward to seeing you show them off.
      See you again soon. πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you for stopping by my blog. I checked yours out for a brief moment and it looks wonderful. I will be checking it out in more depth soon.
      Thank you for the kind words on my selections.
      Please visit again soon. πŸ˜‰

    • These are new. I have these in another color as well. They are a pewter snake skin. They had them in a black but did not have the in my size.
      Thank you for checking back. I am working on my next post so keep checking.
      I appreciate your visits. πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you for the awesome kind words. It does not sound weird. I am appreciative of your praise.
      I go to a nail shop every two weeks. I get my hands done as well as my feet with every visit. In the winter months I let the gals at the shop pick the color.
      Please visit again and often. πŸ˜‰

  5. OMG! When I found your blog I was like so happy! Have never seen a blog like this, I have to say that I’m such a shoe person my self! I just LOVE them, you can’t get enough of shoes right? haha Thank you for blogging about shoes ! Now I know where to read if I’m empty for shoe inspiration!

    • Kristine,
      That is one heck of a greeting. Thank you so much for your appreciation. I think it gives me a lot to live up to. πŸ˜‰
      I agree, one can never have to many shoes, and in this case.., heels!!! The higher the better I always say.
      I am currently working on my next post. With that being said, I always encourage my visitors to give feedback on my selections and to offer advice on what to wear when I go out.
      I am pleased you stopped by and hope to see you often. πŸ˜‰
