My Favorite Five: Investment Shoes on Sale

Investment Shoes worth every penny

Today, My Favorite Five features 5 of the most often worn shoes in my closet.  Not all of these are terribly expensive but I still consider them investment shoes because they have been worth every penny.  These are the ones I gravitate to and you will continue to see!

Jeans // Boots (Sold Out, Similar Here)

This block heel (similar) bootie is so comfortable I bought them in both colors during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  They immediately sold out but are back in stock a third time in all sizes.  They are marked down to only $99.  That’s less than the Anniversary Sale!

Wrap // Top (Similar) // Jeans // Clutch // Boots (Sold Out, Similar Here)

I have received so many compliments on these boots (similar).  No one believes they are by UGG.  They are waterproof suede which I put to the test at a hot chocolate party.  I over-poured the pot and splashed hot chocolate all over them.  They wiped up perfectly….my white skirt…not so much…They are becoming scarce but look here, here and here for your size.

Top (Sold Out, Similar Here) // Clutch // Jeans (Sold Out, Similar Here) // Shoes (Sold Out, Some Sizes Here)

These Aquazzura beauties (similar) have made many appearances on the blog.  They are so comfortable and surprisingly durable given they are suede.  I also have the black leather version.  The inside of the box says, “If the shoe fits, buy it in every color!” so I’m just following directions!

Sweater (Sold Out, Similar Here) // Jeans // Shoes 

This simple shoe is so versatile.  The Stuart Weitzman Nudistsong is easily worn with jeans above or this dress (sold out, similar here).  I originally bought the less expensive version and they were so uncomfortable I only wore them once…wasted money!  These aren’t technically on “sale” but they are a part of the Neiman Marcus January Gift Card Event.  Get those details here.

Jeans // Shoes

You’ve seen these YSL Tribute in nude and black numerous times.  They are also part of the Neiman Marcus event.  This new version with the stacked wood heel are gorgeous! I’ve only seen a the seasonal colors (sold out) go on sale when I snagged the camo version for 60% off.  This black moc croc is on sale in most sizes. The are truly the most comfortable heel I own.  I’ve worn them to cocktail parties and black-tie galas and stood for hours in comfort.  That’s saying something!

Happy Sale Shoe Shopping!

Color Crush: Coral

Color Crush: Coral

Lately, I’ve found myself having a color crush on coral! It is such a flattering color on all skin tones. I love that coral comes in so many shades! It can lean more pink, orange or red depending upon the fabric. You can shop all of my coral picks in my boutique!
