Fab Fall Finds under $100

Moving + a pending New York trip = budget time for me! Even if you're on a budget there are always great shoe finds out there.  So of course, I found some fabulous Fall finds under $100 to share:

GUESS at ShopStyle

Guess Booties for $88 @ Yoox

These look very high-end and expensive. Not sure if it's the texture combo or the classic bootie shape, but for $88 these are definitely a catch.  The mushroom color makes them a perfect fall staple!

Victoria's Secret at ShopStyle

Colin Stuart Side Buckle Sandal for $88 @ Victoria Secret

Victoria Secret often has hidden shoe gems. You can find very on trend shoes at reasonable prices which I love! These "sandals" would be perfect for a fall night out or to dress up some jeans and a tee. The delicate stud detail is just right!

Jessica Simpson at ShopStyle

 Jessica Simpson Waleo Pump for $89 @ Dillard's

Every girl needs the perfect platform. J. Simpson has proven platform worthy with the 'Waleo.' You can find them in a variety of different colors too! 

Mango at ShopStyle

Leopard Print Flexi for $96 @ Asos
Leopard, cheetah, giraffe and zebras... oh my! We all need some animal print in our shoe closets- that's for sure. These cap toe flats will add the perfect "umph" to your fall wardrobe.


Steve Madden Peep Toe Bootie for $80 @ DSW

Peep Toe Booties are definitely trending this fall. I love the platform and zipper details. Can't go wrong with the the color either.

Skechers at ShopStyle

Skechers OTK Boots for $99 @ Victoria Secret

OTK! Someone at work the other day asked me about OTK boots: "Should I buy real leather or faux"? My advice was go faux if you don't have much money to invest because they are very trendy. BUT if you have the $$ to spend then why not go all out, right? 

Happy Thursday. Maybe it will start feeling like Fall soon? A girl can hope!!

Weekend Pics

This weekend was busy busy busy! My best friend and I moved to our new place and boy was it hectic. We also had our friend's annual Birthday Bash combined with a going away party for our other close friends. Here are a few pics of my fun filled weekend:

I was playing around with some heels as I was packing. Packing up the shoe closet was so so sad. Our new place doesn't have as much closet space, but I have a fabulous idea of how I want to store my shoes. Can't wait until it's complete! 

Tried counting but lost track. I will re-count when I organize.

It was a "flats can be fun" night on Saturday night. Metallic, glitter and leopard are all so lovely!

Took a pic of an awesome pair of Creative Recs I spotted on my good friend. Isn't the color so perfect for fall?

Found a yellow floral pillow at Target and decided to change my room's color scheme just so I could incorporate it! I'm sticking with black and white but now with hints of grey and yellow. Love it!

Detailed pillow shot!

How was your weekend?

I'm telling you, the wedge boots are growing on me!

Great Finds at TOPSHOP

Every once in awhile I like to browse the online pages of TOPSHOP for apparel and shoes. They have very on-trend and unique styles that you really can't find anywhere else. Also, the price point is fabulous. Here are a few pairs of shoes that caught my eye recently: 

Topshop at ShopStyle

It's all about boots this fall! Great grey hue and love the buckle details.

Topshop at ShopStyle

I am a HUGE fan of gold flats. You can seriously wear them with ANYTHING and the outfit looks extremely polished. Definitely feeling the laser cut on these flats!

Topshop at ShopStyle

Absolutely love the V throat. SO perfect for Holiday and available in a few other colors too!

Topshop at ShopStyle

For some reason I'm getting an Elizabeth and James vibe from the back cut-out heels. I see them as a fall staple for sure.

Topshop at ShopStyle

Always looking for an awesome pair of flats. The different textures and pop of gold will add the perfect "umph" to any casual outfit.

Bootie Love

Recently, someone on Facebook asked what store I would recommend for Fall's hottest boots and of course I said  Piperlime. Piperlime is my go-to place for the season's newest shoes that are reasonably priced. Plus, I love checking out the Rachel Zoe picks! Spotted some fabulous booties this weekend when I was doing a little online shopping and wanted to share a few of my favs:

Steve Madden at ShopStyle

These look surprisingly luxe for Steve Madden! Peep toe booties are so "in" right now and the pleated vamp gives them a sophisticated look. 

Rock & Republic at ShopStyle

Can you tell I'm loving peep-toe booties? The different textures are spot on for Fall and you know I love an exterior platform!

Chinese Laundry at ShopStyle

Fab price for such sexy booties and they are perfect for girl's night out!

Happy Monday!!


As if your inbox isn't already bombarded with e-mails from multiple online flash sale sites, it's time to make room for one more- Shoe Aficionado. Yes, that's right, a solely shoe sale site!!

Shoe Aficionado launched last Thursday with their first sale of Ce Ce Chin and 80%20. The site promises to offer fabulous designer shoes at up to 75%. Just sign-up and you have access! The next sale, STEVEN by Steve Madden, is scheduled to start on 9/30.

Although this looks promising, it will be interesting to see how a shoe only site can compete with the bigger sites like Gilt, Hautelook, Rue Lala and Ideeli. All four of these have had amazing shoe sales in the past and I doubt they plan to stop anytime soon.

We'll have to keep an eye out!

Friday Eye Candy


Jean-Michel Cazabat at ShopStyle

Jean Michel Cazabat 'Penny' for $425 @ Barneys

I spotted these in Lucky Magazine the other day, but in a glorious red and black zebra-esque combo. Seriously cannot find the red color ANYWHERE online but they are available at select Barneys stores. The color is absolutely yummy and I wish I could show you. I'm still warming up to wedges in general, but these are just too pretty.

If you are in L.A. don't forget to enter my Simply Stylish Giveaway- $75 value and priceless insider info from amazing stylists and fashion gurus.

Christian Siriano for Payless- Spring '11

I was in awe when I spotted photos of Christian Siriano's new Spring '11 collection for Payless

The geometric heels, the textures, the colors... all are fabulous and so high fashion. Could these really be at Payless in a few months? 

If so, you can count on all of them finding their way to my closet!

Architectural shoes are the way of the future and Christian Siriano is seriously spot on.

I think the orange and black zip-back platforms are my favorite. 

I'll be sure to let you know when they are expected in stores. LOVE IT!!

New Charlotte Olympia

I just fall in love over and over again: 

Charlotte Olympia at ShopStyle
Charlotte Olympia 'Paloma' for $840 at Net-A-Porter

These lovely satin beauties feature an amazing 6 inch heel with 1.5 inch platform. They are also available in a couple different colors. Love this image below too:
