Summer’s Trendiest Sandals: Problem solved for the vertically challenged! (Options for tall gals too)

June 23, 2009

It’s times like these that I really wish I was of model stature. I love the gladiator sandals and I am especially loving the ones with the ankle strap. I finally tried on a pair this weekend and I was so disappointed. These shoes are NOT made for someone who is 5’1”. I obviously should have known better. They literally cut my entire body in half!! How do you keep up on the latest sandal trend when they just don’t do anything for you? Anyone else struggle with this? I’ll just have to live vicariously through the tall people out there…

If you’re short like me…stick to options like these!
They still have the ankle strap but it rests lower on your ankle which makes them more flattering to those of us who don’t have the height.

Uba – $59.99 and take an additional 30% off

Heli – $69

Gabriella – $49.99 from $69.99

Apricot – $29.99 from $69

Here are a few that I just love! Make me happy…buy them (because I can’t)!!!!

Pippa, Boutique 9 – $89.99 from $120

Pristine, Boutique 9 – $69.99 from $130

Odolf – $69 and take 30% off

Pictureit, Boutique 9 – $69.99 from $99

Moselle – $89 (wait until these go on sale, they will)

All shoes are from NineWest.com

The Ped Egg: I’m a believer!

June 17, 2009


I work in advertising, so whenever I hear about a new gadget that’s a miracle worker I chock it up to great marketing and let it go. But every summer I have the same problem…my heels get all dry and callused (I know it’s gross, but I’m hoping you can relate). I’ve gone to the podiatrist who has performed some tricks that only had temporary results, I’ve scrubbed with a pumice stone, but NOTHING has the effect I’m looking for. Since the Ped Egg has been non-stop in my face for months now, I decided to spend the $13 and take a chance…I was sure I’d be throwing that $13 in the garbage, but that was not the case at all. My heels have not been this smooth since I’m 7 years old! Seriously…smooth as a baby’s bottom!! I am no longer embarrassed to wear my sandals, in fear that someone will see the nastiness going on down there. I’m a believer now…and trust me…you should be too!!

You should get the one with the handle like I did, so much easier to maneuver!

If you want the hand one, you’ll save $3, it’s only $10!

Also, check out this copy of Ped Egg from CVS for $10. Works just as well as the real thing and they throw in some extras like a pumice attachment!

Try it out and let me know what you think!


Shocking Style Steals: The perfect summer outfits for under $50!

June 9, 2009


I decided to take a look in Old Navy yesterday and to my surprise there were tons of really cute dresses, shorts and sandals. I haven’t shopped in Old Navy in ages, so I figured…why not experiment. I got an arm full of clothes and headed to the dressing room, figuring nothing would look cute at all, but to be honest, everything was great! It was hard to choose just 1 item, so, I allowed myself to purchase 1 outfit (dress, sunglasses and sandals)…all for a whopping $48.50! There were so many cute outfits I could have come up with for under $50 as well…take a look!

Would you step foot in Old Navy? Which under $50 outfit do you like best?




One Shoulder Ruffle Tops: What makes you feel sexy?

May 22, 2009


I made a quick stop at Target the other day and passed by the cutest shirt. $15 later I had the greatest addition to my wardrobe! I put it on that night with a pair of skinny jeans and tall sandals and I’ve honestly never felt more sexy…and classy. I’m loving this new one-shoulder look. It’s such an easy way to spice up an outfit while showing just enough skin…simply flattering for every body type (Target also has this shirt in plus sizes). Definitely pick one or two or three up, there are so many different color choices, you will NOT regret it.
