The Continuing Adventures of Shoe Girl


Spring is trying to make a move!

In between polar vortexes, there have been a few days of gorgeous weather and much needed sunshine. A commercial advertising an “Anniversary Sale” caught my attention; and this month I ventured into Payless Shoes to see what I could score.

I waltzed in and discovered a huge focus on black and white color blocking ~ and these Montego Bay Club “Sadie Raffia” wedges.

The pattern on the wedge is so fun you’ll hardly need accessories! The gold metal detail is nicely subtle. Pair these with a simple sundress or some capris or skinny jeans. Regular $34.99, these are currently on sale for $24.99.

Christian Siriano's "Hashtag"

Christian Siriano’s “Hashtag”

These super sexy “Hashtag” peep-toe shooties by Christian Siriano are amazing. There is a slit down the front of the shoe that adds even more “ooh-la-la” to this already awesome silhouette.

These would pair well with an LBD for a night out on the town, or with dress pants for work. They are also available in wide width. Available in blue or black, they are regularly $39.99, but on sale for $26.99.

Looking for a casual, comfy pair of flats? Airwalk’s “Dream” comes in a variety of colors and is perfect for springtime. There is something for everyone with these ~ from crocheted to camp designs. They are super lightweight and a great casual addition to any wardrobe.

Available in black, gray, silver glitter, cream crochet, antique flag, black crochet, black/white, brown camo, and pink. Regular $22.99; now on sale for $19.99.

The two bonus picks (double bonus!) for the spring are both oxford styles by American Eagle.

“Justify” is a cute shoe style I’ve never seen before. It’s perfect for spring with lots of cutouts, but still classy.

I don’t know what these shoes won’t go with! The heel is a sturdy 3″.  Available in black and cognac, and regularly priced at $39.99, they are on sale now for $29.99.

I bought these “Javelin” oxfords and cannot stop wearing them. They are great with skinny jeans or bootcut ~ and I can’t wait to pair them with a dress!

There is a ribbon lace for additional flexibility. They are super comfy ~ great for the office or a party!  The 3.5″ heel is not too much, and makes them wearable all day long. They are also available in wide width.

In cognac. Regular $34.99, clearance-priced at $14.00.
