Adventures In On-Line Shoe Shopping

I've decided that it was time for me to buy some new shoes. Inspired by Material Girl, and much to the annoyance of my husband, I spend a couple of hours on-line browsing through shoe websites. I've made some very interesting discoveries, created a few wish lists, and bought a pair I've had my eyes on for a long time at an amazingly discounted price.

Here are the shoes I bought, Hush Puppies Silhouette in light brown.

I am on my feet most of the time at work, and so I'm always looking for comfortable yet feminine shoes. I've tried these on in a store a while ago and they perfectly meet my requirements. The cool thing about them is that they're made to look like flats, but inside there's 1 and 1/4 raised wedge. The original price was $69.95. I got these at for $29.99. Boy, do I feel good! These shoes are also available in, silver, gold, black, ivory and beet, however light brown is the only color on sale.

My next exciting discovery in shoe browsing are these Nina Dolls Button Up Shoes from

Nina Dolls Button Up (Women's) - Erba Green Leather

They look very Anthropologie without the Anthropologie price tag. I love the retro feel of these shoes and the inside lining that looks like wallpaper. Here is the description from Shoebuy: "Delightfully demure yet with plenty of style, the Nina Dolls Button Up accessorizes any with flair. Stacked wood offers modest height to the heel, and buttery soft leather adds sophistication throughout. Topped with a dainty double-strapped bow, and you've got a winning look for any workday or weekend event. Padded foot bed. Leather upper. Nonskid outsole. 1" stacked heel. Available Colors: Cream Leather, Erba Green Leather, Black Leather." The price of these dolls is $49.95. Shoebuy also takes $20 off of $50 orders if you pay with paypal. These shoes are just 5 cents short of the promotion so you'd have to get another pair to be eligible for the discount.

I went to check out
Nina's web site and lo and behold I found the shoes bellow that Anthropologie calls Dashwood Wedges and sells for $88. Nina's price? $79.95 + FREE shipping.

Here is another shoe I was taken with, Women's Life Stride Jan II for $38.95. A steal!
