Steve Madden-Revenu, another shot at glory?

29 01 2009

Remember my first post when I was gushing over the Shayne boot @ Bakers (https://shoestalkersandaddicts.wordpress.com/2009/01/16/my-current-object-of-affection/) and got all upset because I knew it’d be gone before I could get it? Well looky here at what I found! A close reincarnation of the Shayne called Revenu and available for pre-order at Steve Madden for $129.95. Is this my second chance at obtaining this shoe? Probably not. Reason one being I like the fact that the Shayne boot was pretty plain. It was the style of the heel and that little bow in the back that attracted me. Now Steve Madden went and added all these studs to it , which made it even more fly, but I would’ve rather had it plain. Second, I never found a heel pad that keeps my foot from slipping out the darn thing! Such a tease.

 





An ugly shoe and its better looking, more expensive cousin.

 CUTIEWhen I first saw this shoe on Bakersshoes.com for $79 and change, I thought “what the hell is this? who in the world would wear these?” They’re now on sale for $29 and I still feel exactly the same. In my opinion it looks like a unfinished witch boot.

Then I saw this next shoe and realized the difference a little bit of quality can make. Worn here by La La , the Givenchy lace front wedge boots dont look half bad…

Prices for the boot range from $695 to $795 depending on where you purchase and even though this shoe is definately NOT one of my favorites, I wouldn’t call it “ugly”. If I had to judge based off that first shoe, I wouldnt have even given this style a chance.





Rihanna in a SICK pair of studded pumps

I hate her dress in this picture but her shoes seem to make the whole darn outfit look fantastic. I guess thats all you need is a great pair of shoes. If I saw Rihanna on the street wearing these pumps, I’d beat her up and steal them….spl74776_015.jpg

Now Im not sure if the pumps she’s wearing in the picture are the same make as the bootie below but it damn well looks pretty close.

This crystal studded suede shoe orgasm is by Giuseppe Zanotti. Available @ couture.zappos.com for $767.47 (originally $1024.95) , I wonder who decided it was ok to charge mortgage rates for shoes??? Why cant I afford to have these shoes?????? I would rock the $hit out of them and the universe knows this. That’s why it is keeping us apart!! lol

xoxox lovely boots and pumps. I guess I’ll see you next lifetime…





My current object of affection…

16 01 2009

I have been following this shoe all season and honestly I would have owned them by now. I’ve had plenty of chances to purchase it at a cost lower than the regular retail price of  $99.95 at Bakers Shoes. The only reason I do not own them right now is because I have one of the narrowest pairs of feet on the planet. I went to a Bakers store in Cherry Hill Mall, NJ to try on these beautiful peep toe booties. Even though they look absolutely fabulous on me, I couldn’t ignore the fact that  my heels slip out of the back of the shoe when I walk. The part of the shoe that ties around the ankle prevents it from flying off  but it was not enough to keep me from tripping over the shoe while its dangling from my foot. I’ve always had this issue when it comes to pumps and I am currently researching every shoe insert available that is supposed to assist with this kind of problem, but I’ve had no success.

They are now on clearance for $79.99. I have to find a solution to buy them before they are gone forever!!!
