Choose me some shoes

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

Fashionistas, help me out here, will ya? I have been into boots this year, for some reason. I always steer away from them before, due to the crazy high heels they come with. I guess I have grown a passion with leggings, and then that linked to boots, lol.

Coming back from vacation, seeing whatever left after Boxing Week, I didn't see anything that sparked my interest. Browsing the web though, I found something. These cuties are from Spring, on sale, in my size.

The first pair is Kommer (yes, their shoes all have interesting names instead of just numbers), and the other pair is Madie, CAD60 on for CAD31.50 each. They are quite unique, in my opinion. Didn't see them in store, so the only place I could get them is online. Hate that shipping is only free with CAD49 orders though.

And this one is Lesidi, CAD70 down to CAD35. Nothing particularly amazing about it, just the suede look and the fold over that got me. What do you think about the style?

I'm not really excited about the discount though, shouldn't these shoes be on for at least 50% off. I remember Spring always has half off sale for Boxing week. Should I wait then?

The fact is I have bought some boots this winter (from Sirens, Suzy Shier and Winners), my guts tell me I wouldn't need any more. The problem is my mind though :-) I guess you guys can relate to that, exact same thing we experience with makeup.

We are already at midweek, can you believe that? Have you got used to writing "2010" instead of 2009 yet? :-) Anyway, come and share you favorite place to shop for shoes or your favorite style with me.


  1. I like the slouch look of the first pair.

    Hate to add to the dilemma, but FYI Globo shoes is having a free shipping and super half-price sale on right now, too...!

  2. I would say pass on the Spring Shoes deal. They used to have AWESOME deals for their shoes. Heres the thing about them, at least I found. Its a major hit or a miss with their shoes :T
    I have a bunch of sandals from them, and 2 boots. But one of the boots, after a months wear, started wearing down and looked so much older than they were :T and it wasn't like I was treading through the mountains in them!
    I would suggest refraining this time around (cause even with the sale, seems a tad expensive) and check out other places, feet first, browns? their free shipping is higher but...meh if you find something good XD

  3. I would so hold back! Especially since you mentioned you already bought boots.

    But! If you must.. (hehe) I like the last pair!

  4. 2nd Arezu - If you can't hold out til spring, I'd go with pair #3. I don't like the high heel tennis shoe look of the 2nd.

  5. You're prob right, I'll hold on to my money this time :-)

    Emily, I'm scared to look around, as if I saw something, I would spend money, lol

    rasilla, that's odd that their shoes don't have quality consistency.

    Arezu, Shop N' Chomp, Kiradris, you all like the last pair :-) Thanks for the advice, seriously. I need it. xoxo

  6. Yeah, I know what you mean. I almost have the opposite problem, I look at loads of stuff online but really have to talk myself into buying anything. Right now I'm considering the makeup brushes I posted about here

    but I'm not sure about them. Actually you might be the perfect person to ask about brush recommendations. Do you think these would be good, or should I look around more?

    I was kind of eyeballing the Quo angled kabuki brush, too, but I really do want a set since it seems cheaper to buy in bulk, as it were, and I have no brushes.

  7. Emily, I'll do up a post to answer your question :-)
