Flats!

The other day I worked out at the gym after my last class. I had the small locker room to myself and was almost fully dressed after taking a shower when another student walked in. Naturally, I looked up at her from putting on my shoe and said hi to her. She smiled back and told me that she really liked my shoes. “Shoedazzle,” I stated with a smile.

I have blogged about Shoedazzle before and I really like that they have a variety of different styles. There is a good mixture of unique and practical merchandise and almost every time I get a compliment on my shoes, it is when I am wearing a pair from this online store. However, I am not here to talk about Shoedazzle again, but about flats. Let me tell you something, I love flats. I think they are stylish and comfortable for daily use and can be both dressed up or down. The student I spoke to in the locker room told me that it was kind of hard to find some cute flats. If I run into her again, I am going to have her check out this blog so she can see some cute styles! Here are some cute flats I found while internet shopping.

First one is from Shoedazzle and they are called Cathleen Flats. These also come in a pink blush color and a dark blue with floral print. The flats I wore the other day were black flats with some jeweled detail in the front.

The second pair of flats is from Dillards and it is by Betsey Johnson who is one of my favorite designers of all time. This is her Ann Floral Bow Detail Laceback flats.

I know this shoe says spring, but the reds and yellows still make this shoe doable for fall as well. The bow that is tied in the back adds a girly touch and is opened in the heel area.

Flats #3 are also from Dillards and are the Volatile Lumina Velvet Mary Jane Flats.

These have a unique look to them and are velvet which is a great trend for the colder weather upon us. These also come in a taupe color as well. When it comes to flats that hit you above your ankle like these, I would highly recommend that you either wear cropped pants or a skirt so that the hem of your clothes do not interfere with the detail of the shoe.

Flats #4 are from the store Iron Fist Clothing and are called Into The Deep

These have a unique print to them with hearts, small ocean waves and a leather bow in the front. Iron Fist is known to have unique designs such as this. If you want something that does not have an over-the-top print, I would recommend something cute like these next flats from Iron Fist which are called, Mother of Pearl.

I love the peep toe these have and the clam detail on them. These also come in black for those of you who may not be feeling the pink color. Iron Fist’s products are also vegan friendly!

That’s all I have for you all today. I hope these flats help you realize that flats can be fun and very useful in your closet. Stay stylish everyone! Thank you for reading!

Work, Work, Work, Work, Work

Before I got my current job, I was working retail. I was working at the store WetSeal and pretty much had the ability to wear whatever I wanted as long as it was an appropriate length and cut that would represent the store and myself well. WetSeal merchandise was always encouraged to wear, so you can imagine just how much I would spend on clothes there on pay day. Plus who doesn’t like a great employee discount?

Now that I am in an office environment, there had to be some changes to my wardrobe. I am the person who sits at the front desk. I answer phone calls, I work on documents, I greet visitors and try to help them with general questions about certain services and because I sit in the front desk, I am the first face people see which puts the need to represent my department well. This put some pressure on me about what I can’t wear anymore. No more ripped jeans. No more spaghetti strapped tops. No more shorts, even if they were dressy shorts. No more shirts that say words like “Tacos & Tequila” or “Beach Please” or “no makeup, no problem” or “all I need is coffee and wifi”…you get the picture. I went into the job interview wearing a high neck black dress and black closed toe flats. I kept the makeup natural looking and straightened my hair. You have no idea how much I researched on what to wear for an interview. Maybe I can blog on some tips soon?

Anyways, my style has transformed since being at my current job and today I am going to show you 3 different looks that I have gotten compliments on at work. This first one is a bit fierce, but it is not over the top. In my personal opinion, mixing two different animal prints is pretty daring and can make any outfit look more trendy. This outfit is under $75 and has started a lot of conversations from visitors to the office.

This second outfit was under $50! The colors in this outfit made me think of Daphnie from Scooby-Doo! Pretty sophisticated and girly at the same time.

Last look is one that plays with flawless black and white with a pop of color! This outfit was also under $75 and the skirt was only $4!

Which one of these outfits is your favorite? Do you want to know details on these outfits? Tomorrow I will be posting more details on these three outfits and am currently working on a video for you guys! I hope you guys enjoyed these looks. Do not be afraid to allow your style to grow up with you! Stay stylish my friends.

 

 

Shoedazzle Obsession

It’s another hot day in Texas, but that is nothing new. Especially in the month of July! What’s also nothing new is my Shoedazzle addiction. It doesn’t matter what month out of the year it is, I have a shopping problem with this online store.

I have been a Shoedazzle member since 2011! I used to also be a member of their sister store JustFab, but I ended up canceling the account because I was getting involved in too much online shopping for my bank account’s comfort. I am going to keep this blog short and straight to the point when I say that I really love Shoedazzle. They have a lot of nice styles that come in different colors and my membership guarantees me the VIP price of their products versus the original price. I love that I can scroll through all types of styles and even look at bags, clothing and accessories. Although I love clothes, I really come shop here for their shoes. I buy mostly flats and boots and have gotten compliments on every single pair I’ve purchased from here. Coincidence? I doubt it.

If you love shoes and shop for shoes very often, then I recommend creating a membership with Shoedazzle. The only catch is that your card will be charged $39.99 if you do not ‘Skip the Month’ by the 5th day of each new month that comes up. Although I think this rule sucks, I have personally managed to remember to skip the month if buying shoes is not in the budget. If you know you may forget to do this each month, you can set a reminder on your phone to skip or you can shop the site without becoming a member. Members have the benefit of purchasing anything at a discounted price, so really think about what would be the best thing to do for yourself.

This blog is short for today, but before I go, here are the new pair of shoes that I bought that came in yesterday! These shoes are called Kayna and they also come in black!
