Similar to Zara Shoes

So if you’re like everyone else who loves to shop at Zara the favorite high-street fashion chain for shoes. And sometimes you wait until a shoe goes on sale or it just becomes so popular that it sells out quickly. But the only way to find it is to search on Ebay for it, but quickly realize that the price is outrageous, because the seller is aware of how high in demand the shoe is. Its also crazy how sellers have tried to sell the shoes previously worn for what they paid retail for, I guess we can call it supply and demand. Well that has happened to me a couple of times & I just cannot see myself spending double what the actual shoe was worth, because I slacked off. Well I have been searching for similar shoes for a while now & to my surprise I was able to find very similar look-a-likes that are less expensive.

SJP Shoe Line

So it seemed like I was waiting forever to see the shoe collaboration between Sara Jessica Parker & her business partner George Malkemus (CEO of Manolo Blahnik collection). But the time has finally come they are now available at the department store & online as off February 28 2014. The shoe collection is said to be available exclusively at Nordstrom. The shoes, which are made in Italy, start at $195 and go to $485. A shoe collection that to me is a little pricey not my average purchase. I went to see the shoes at Nordstrom & they are very nice, but for me it’s not worth spending $195 for some flip-flops, which are the least expensive ones in the collection. Her Signature detail is that each shoe has a grosgrain ribbon along the back. Sarah Jessica Parker is best known for playing Carrie Bradshaw of Sex and the City where we know how much she loved her shoes. So its no surprise that one of her shoes in the collection is named the “Carrie” that is a T-strap, which comes in black, purple, nude and green. Here are some of the shoes in the collection, which I just loved:

Spring Booties under $150

So in a couple of days we will be getting our spring wardrobe ready. But what exactly do we need?  It seems that the ankle boots are a major spring trend.  So its time to break out your booties or start shopping for some new ones. Once the temperature starts to drop it seem our boots start to get shorter. There are so many options out there so here are a few of my favorites all under $150. This is a trend that can be worn with practically anything.  I have seen them worn with summer dresses, short & of course jeans. Later I will post pictures of some of my favorite looks.

Metal Studded Heels

If you are looking for metal studded heels you’re in luck, cause now you can find them everywhere, from expensive designer ones to very affordable ones. It seems like these shoes have been very popular for some time & they continue to be my go-to shoes. Especially when wearing a simple outfit or a little black dress, I let my shoes be the focal point of my outfit. I have a few in my collection, it seems I cannot resist the metal details so I keep buying them in different styles.

Metal Studded Heels

Zara Basic F/W 12 Black Sandal. When I saw these from Zara I was extremely happy, (not to mention its from one of my favorite stores) they have studs along the back & heel & comes with an ankle strap in a 4 ½ “ Heel & are pretty comfortable considering the heel height

Zara Basic Black Sandal

Vince Camuto Jamma. These shoes I liked as soon as I saw the bow in the front, but had originally wanted the black suede ones, I  decided to rather go with this nude color, in either case the studs do really stand out. The pumps have studs on the front & along the back with a 4 ½ “ heel. The only negative I have for this shoe is that the studs fall off easily, I’ve only worn these twice and as you can see in the picture it is missing one, (luckily I was able to find it). And know to figure out how to put it back on.

BCBGeneration Oahu. These pointy toe pumps have studs all over. The ones I went with are the tan snakeskin with a 4” heel. These shoes are a real beauty to look at because let me just say that these are not at all comfortable.
