Alba, the shoe enabler.

My dear, dear, friend Alba sent me a picture the other day of a fabulous little pair of flats that caught her eye.  Check these little beauties out.  So adorable and so very Alba.  When I clicked on the link it brought me to a wonderful little website called shoes.com  So today I did some browsing of my own and you guessed it!  I'm going to show you a few of my favorite finds.  As if I need another shoe buying website to tempt me with all of it's gorgeous offerings.

These mary jane inspired shoes by Dollhouse will keep you hot to trot all season.  I am really digging the tie front detail and the cut outs on the sides.  This would work with so many different looks for Fall.  Sweet and sexy and for only $70 how can you resist?






Belle by Sigerson Morrison calls this the cape pump.  Well, Batman better watch out because I think this shoe could give him a run for his money.  There is something incredibly chic about this bootie/pump.  Oh wouldn't they be so hot with your favorite pair of skinny jeans?  I could seriously rock some looks with these.  So HOT!!!



  I have a confession to make.  I have been having a love affair with elastic straps since the spring. You see, earlier this year I found this GORGEOUS pair of blue sandals that had an elastic strap across the instep and I bought them.  Well much to my disappointment when I received this lovely pair of shoes they were HUGE.  The designer only sold the shoe is whole sizes I took a risk, I thought, and ordered a 1/2 size down.  I wear a 6.5.  I ordered a 6.  HUGE, I tell you!  I was so sad.  Anyway, long story short ever since then my love affair began.  So I bring you this pretty, pretty peep toe by BCBG Max Azria.  I adore all of the details in this sassy little heel.  The shiny patent leather, the wool trim, and oh yes - the elastic strap on the instep.  My love affair continues...


Oh Steve Madden... there are times when you can be so wrong AND THEN there are times you can be so right.  And honey, you have it right here.  I absolutely love the architectural heel, the two tones of material and color, the shape... everything!  I don't just want these.  I NEED these.

As you can imagine. I'm trolling for shoes again. Hence why I was checking your site... Wondering what to get next. The enabler at work. hehe!
