Kick Push and Coast…


Like I told S yesterday on the phone.  These were justified purchases because the sneakers were pretty.


I have an issue, I know.

Honestly I will rock these shoes.  I needed a good pair of walking shoes in the morning going into work so the Superga’s are going to be my everyday shoes… I don’t give an eff if they are orange.

Now the Adidas are going to be my go to concert sneakers.

When going out to concerts I always  have the HARDEST time choosing what I’m going to wear because I don’t have enough cool fashion sneakers.  With this bombass Adidas hightops I can’t imagine finding an outfit to be an issue.

How often do you guys rock sneakers?

I Heart Shoes

Shoe Dazzle boots and white ankle boots

Last week I went on ShoeDazzle because I received an email about the fall preview sale.  I found a couple of pair of shoes that I loved and so I picked them up.  I ordered the shoes on Wednesday (07/17/2013) and I got them by Saturday (07/20/2013).

Here we go!!!!!

Black Yemay  tall boots, White Myona White Ankle Boots Black Yemay  tall boots, White Myona White Ankle Boots

How did you like the shoes reveal?

The white ankle boots are called Myona and while the black ones are Yemay.  I haven’t tried them on yet, but trust that I will when the fall rolls around!

What do you guys think of these shoes?

Have you purchased any boots from ShoeDazzle recently?

Corina from Shoedazzle

Since I have a bit of discretionary income I thought  I should reward myself.  So I spurged and buy some new shoes… and by spurged I mean I spent $13.02 for these new kicks.

Yes, I’m a super shopper!

So I’m going to take a page out of Lisa’s book and doing a shoe reveal. I LOVE when Lisa does shoe reveals on her blog, but her shoes typically cost about a billion times more than mine would.

Okay… here we go!



I love the color of Shoedazzle boxes!


Yes!  I have super big feet.  Which is good cuz NO ONE can borrow shoes from me!


I love how Shoedazzle glams their products up with these dust bags.  I have countless amounts of them and have never used them.  DSC_0740

There she is!  Corina!  This is a heeless wedge shoe.  I wasn’t going to rock this trend, but when I I found I could cop them for $13.02 (including shipping) then I was all aboard the heeless wedge express!  CHOO!  CHOO!DSC_0742

There they go!DSC_0744 DSC_0748 DSC_0750 DSC_0752 DSC_0753


They are actually VERY easy to walk in.  I wanted to rock them last night at a pub crawl, but it has been raining like cats and dogs in Dallas recently and I resisted the urge to do so… because I didn’t want to fall on my face and look like an ass.  However, I will probably be rocking them around July 04th weekend.  I will be heading home to Austin for an extended stay and will have plenty of time to showcase the hell outta them.

I hope you guys liked this reveal! If so I will try and do more when/if I buy anymore shoes. My shoe closet is at full capacity right now.

What do you guys think about the heelless wedge trend?

Happy Sunday Funday!

Shoe Porn in Motion

Yes, I agree… spending $400 on shoe (not matter if on sale or not) seems like a bit much.  However, one does have to appreciate living vicariously through one who can.  One day I hope I will have the ability to casually be able to drop $400 on a pair of shoes.

Now the questions is will I, even if I had the money?


Happy Monday!

“…but it’s better to be known for your soul.” Famous words of Kenneth Cole (appropriate, no?) I am known far and wide for my shoes, and this is one lesson that I am desperately trying to learn. There have been a lot of changes for me this year, and I’m trying to come out of it as a better person – physically, mentally, and emotionally. So for this month’s links, along with the usual fun fashiony tidbits, I am going to throw out some of the posts/sites that have been helping me along. Because working on yourself is like filling your closet – a never ending job!

Bonus Haul!!!

As some of you know, I work for a state agency, which means a few things – I get to wear almost anything I want; we’re having major budget concerns, so raises are hard to come by; and, every now and then, we get merit bonuses when there is a little extra money. I got this bonus on Friday, and it was AWESOME!!!! So of course, I went straight to the mall to spend my hard-earned money, and you know what?? It was hard! I went into Sephora TWICE and nobody would help me – not that they were all too busy, they were just standing around gossiping. But every time I approached someone, they walked off. So then I went to Express. But the one dress that I really wanted was not available in my size. So then I went to American Eagle – and then I remembered that I am not 22 anymore, and that nothing there is appropriate for the office. Then I went to Nine West. And while they were having a BOGO 50% off sale, I could only find TWO pairs of shoes that I liked (pictured below). Seriously, I thought I might be getting sick! But it got better on Saturday – I went to Marshall’s and found some cute things, and a pair of Nine West wedge mary janes on sale for $22 (pictured above). Then I went to Ulta, and had the most amazing help ever. Then it was off to Aveda, and again, had awesome assistance. So my money was able to spend itself 🙂

All shoe photos by ME!!!

ALSO… I am stealing a page from K’s book, and setting some June goals for myself. 

I have about $1500 in savings – I want to end the month with that same amount there or more. No more dipping!

Walk (I can’t run yet) at least 2 miles, five days a week.

Bring my lunch to work at least 3 days per week.

Go out at least once a week to happy hour or dinner with some friends.

Post at least 2 “extra” posts here (so on Saturday or Sunday)

Finally get off my lazy butt and go see The Avengers (and also Snow White and the Huntsman. Oh, and also Magic Mike – love me some Channing Tatum!!)


My favorite painting on a cake?? I better see this on my birthday!!

I need one of my exs to text me so that I can send this message.

Absolutely beautiful, but what are they all used for?

As I have been trying to eat healthier, I have been learning how to cook with the seasons, and this has been so helpful.

Perfect for getting clean after a night on the town.

I have literally been eating this 3-4 nights per week for the past month. I’ve just been substituting feta cheese for the mozzarella. Love tomato season!!!

To make up for a trip that I abandoned for my ex, I will be taking this vacation next February.

Of course, this wouldn’t be a bad place to go either!!!

I so need to brush up on my spy skills!!!

I think I could pull off making this

The two lessons I am focusing on right now.

Do yourself a favor. After you purchase something online (like, for instance, shoes from Ami Club Wear) DO NOT go back and look at the site again later. You will only find things (like more shoes) that you want to buy, and then you lose out on the discounted shipping, and you begin to wonder if you made the right choice before, and then you’re wondering if the company will be open at 9:15 on a Sunday night… and it is all down hill from there. But in the meantime, check out two of the four awesome shoes I DID get!! 



Monday links (and not “linx” which is a cat and not a route to something cool and awesome, which is what a “link” is):

I could not just put this into a link and not show you how freaking awesome this cake looks. Find instructions and additional awesomeness here.

This is exactly what I think a dinner party should look like – everyone’s hands in the picture, reaching for more goodness:

There is nothing that I hate more than animal print ANYTHING! I think it’s so tacky… HOWEVER I went against the grain and purchased some lovely cheetah print pumps from Aldo!

I will admit that lately I have been on the search for great animal print shoes because I think all the pictures of my favorite stylistas rocking the scarves and shoes finally seeped into my brain.

Therefore I went on my search to find my gold goose of heels.  There are a lot of wild cat print shoes out there, but none of them fit my motif. That’s until I went to the Aldo Outlet this weekend in San Marcos, Texas and found the Holy Grail of kitty cat print shoes!

I got these heels for less than $30 (including the tax)! The original cost was $90 (67% off y’all)! These are a 5 inch heel with an 1 ½ platform. I will admit, they are tight at the toes so I’m going to have to stretch them out. I can’t wait to rock these pumps in some feature outfit of the day looks!

What do you guys think of animal print clothing?

The Midas Touch

So I purchased these gold shoes from Ross this weekend.  As the tag clearly indicates the show is a size 10 from Joey.  I have to say that Joe really knows how to create a shoe.  Most of my favorite shoes have been Joey by way of Ross.

Now I have been wanting a pair of gold sequin five inch heels for a minute.  Last year I wanted to rock a Halle Berry gold New Years Eve dress, but I could never locate a dynamic shoe for it.    Now this year I may buy the sequin materialt and make my own dress for NYE with a bad ass bandage dress.

Okay so check out the pics below… this shoe should help you get your morning started right!

Outfit of the Day: Dallas Does San Francisco

So this is my third screen t-shirt pull for this weekend. This is one of my favorite looks because I LOVE that shirt. The shirt is a cheap child’s large that I got when I went to San Francisco back in 2006 for $3. San Francisco is one my FAVORITE cities in the world. The area is so beautiful. I LOVE the Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge. The city is full of so much culture and so easy to navigate around. I would suggest that EVERYONE go visit the city!

As you can tell that I have a bit of a wardrobe change. I was wearing my Reeboks because I wanted to stay true to form. I don’t jazz my photos up in an attempt to look more “high fashioned”. I really going out in everything I wear. I was wearing the Reeboks for functionality, but I went back in car to pull something out and found my Adidas! These are truly for style! The shoes describe my personal style to a T, Americana.

San Francisco

Levi’s  American

Aviators are classic Americana style

I hope you guys like this post and enjoyed your weekend as much as I enjoyed mine! Monday I will have a work outfit for you guys to review. I know a lot of people have been requesting that type of style. I will also be going shopping with my girl for her birthday, so hopefully I have another cool outfit for you guys to post.
