The past few years, shoes have been slowly replacing the handbag — becoming the “it” accessories. It’s no longer about the logo-a-gogo purses nor ever so popular large, hobo bag. No, it’s all about the shoes: designer shoes, statement shoes, quirky shoes, simple shoes, shoes! Who can blame you? It’s the ultimate outfit pick-me-up. Bloggers and fashionista in particular have been expressing their obsession with shoes, and it definitely shows in wearing today’s and in personal cases, the monthly credit bill — ouch.
That in mind, a wonderful representative, Danielle, from the online shoe boutique store Solestruck.com offered myself and That’s Chic readers a whopping 20% discount off anything on their website and it’s free shipping and handling. I’m normally not the type of blogger who gets into these types of deals, namely because the selection is poor or it doesn’t meet my standards, but Solestruck has tons of cute shoes and knowing that you get free shipping and handling and 20% off is awesome.
Keep in mind, all shoes shown in this post is from the website and you can click on each shoe for pricing and such.
As you may notice in the first picture of this post, I am wearing these awesome ankle boots for my friend's New Years Eve party (pics here) and a few people asked me where I bought them. Unfortunately, I snagged them from the Macy's sales rack last year, but here's your opportunity at another chance to purchase them! After Danielle showed the website, I immediately fell head-over-heels for the second pair of ankle boots and got them right on the spot. How could you not? It's the perfect transition to Fall. I'm also considering the very last pair of boots shown: the perfect combination of color, the play on modern chic and western, the serious buttery look, the temptation.
Having a great pair of heels that can be worn as casual and formal is like the ultimate staple. Every single pair shown here has its own distinct style -- which I admire. The first pick is by Betsey Johnson, and I'm not a stickler for her quirky taste in shoes and generous usage of colors. However, I love these wedges as they somewhat remind me of a Burberry shoe, not to mention how potentially great those wedges would look with socks. Cutout wedges are definitely a nice demeanor to the average heel, and sometimes -- just sometimes -- a low-key heel with a low-key design is just absolutely perfect.
