Wonder Wedges and Fabulous Flats


I totally forgot I had a shoe obsession.

How did I forget, you ask??

Well for 2 years, my husband and I lived in an awesome downtown condo. As amazing as the condo was, it had tiny closets. And I mean T-I-N-Y. After moving from a condo with a walk-in closet large enough to fit a bike, this was terrifying to me. Not only did I have to get rid of a lot before we moved in but I had to limit my shopping. There was just no room for new items.

Since not shopping was virtually impossible, I made a deal with myself. If I bought something,  I had to give something else away. It actually worked. I never ran out of room and I did a great job of cleaning out my closet more often.

Then we moved...to this.


Not only do we have a huge walk-in in the master with a built-in shoe shelf (above), but each of the two guest rooms also have walk-ins with shoe shelfs. So needless to say, I am back to shopping and NOT giving anything away.

Which brings me to today...meet my new shoes.

Steve Madden Beachy (you have already heard me talk about these and seen me wear them but they need a formal intro because I love them so much)


So a while back, I bought a similar pair at Steve Madden but once I got them, I didn't love them on. They were too narrow and they had weird studs. When I saw these online, I knew I had to have them. I'd been searching for black wedges that were not too black - I have a thing for sandals that have too much black - they look too harsh. These were perfect because the top strap across the toe was narrow so there was not a lot of black. Anyway, since I got them, I have been living in them! I love them so much I might even order some of the other colors. I have been eyeing the cognac!

Steve Madden Bouncerr


I got these in the Fawn patent because my old SM fawn wedges are started to look old and dirty. I wore the other ones like crazy last year so I am hoping to do the same with these. These come in other colors too...a black leather, black suede, green suede and white leather (I think it's leather). These are really comfy because the platform is so high. Love them!!

Urban Outfitters Daisy Cut Out Sandals


These were an impulse buy over the weekend. They are cheap, cute and come in so many fun colors. I had a hard time choosing between these gold ones and the white ones. I haven't worn them yet so I cannot talk about the comfort level but they look cute so that's all that matters. Reviews online say they rip easily...they seem sturdy to me so I'll let you know if anything happens!

Sparkle Flats from Target


I actually got these when I got my cobalt blue flats. They are kids but large enough for my feet (yay). They are super comfortable. I got in a whole days worth of wear with no blisters! They are really cute on and my only issue with them is the glitter fall off. It does...a lot. I noticed our dogs were a bit more sparkly the day I had them on! :) But that's nothing a little mod podge can't do. I mod podged my sparkle flats from F21 and it totally worked. Problem solved!

Lucky for me and my excess closet space, I didn't have to give anything away to keep any of these!


Are you a shoe addict too? What great shoe finds have you found recently?

  11. Ooooo I love your walk-in closet with the built-in shoe shelves! Genius!! And those Steve Madden wedges are amazing! I love them. :) Lately I've been on a shoe kick and my husband has been noticing me more and more bringing new shoe purchases in.. haha.. And we have literally no room for new stuff anymore until we move into our new house which will give me MORE room! I'll be the same as you and be able to fill it all up. ;)

    I found some cute shoes at H&M and Target lately! I have been also wanting more Sam Edelman sandals... I'm stalking them at Nordies. Sigh..
