Golden Greek Goddess

Style: Palace
Color: Gold Met Pu
Size: 8
Purchase Location: online
Purchase Price: under $50

Greek-inspired, flirty and fascinating.

Before I rave over these cute heels, please proceed with caution.  While the heel height isn't more than 3.5 inches, the tied rope is all that keeps your feet secure. I do like these shoes.  I have not worn them yet, but I do have a few outfits in mind.  My sister actually purchased these shoes for a costume as a Greek goddess- perfect. When she was done with them, she gave them to me because as we all know, I "collect" cute shoes.

I do not recommend these shoes to just any and every woman.  These heels could be great for costuming, parties and lingerie.  If you are a shoe-addict like me, then you can find a fabulous way to wear these golden goddess heels.


The Tale of Mystery Mystique

Style: Mystique 003 #2091
Color: 31-Turqs
Size: 7.5 M
Purchase Location: Bakers
Purchase Price: under $90

Fun, Unexpected and Flirty.

A classic shape meets a funky twist of color and textures in these adorable turquoise peep-toe, sling-back heels.  I tried these shoes on and wanted them in my wardrobe asap.  These are obviously NOT staple heels.  These are for the woman who has her staple shoes already and wants to expand and have a little fun.

These fabulously fun heels would be perfect for a girls' lunch, worn with jeans or a dress.  These shoes can also add an amazing pop of color with a more neutral outfit.    

I recommend these heels but should point out, these heels feel a little different to walk in so make sure you practice in them before stepping out.  I wear heels often and am not downplaying your heel-walking ability, just letting you know my observations.  I would guess the heel height at 5 inches, but that's just a guess.


More Sugar, Please.

Style: Z-Bellevue 
Color: Sugar Brown
Size: 7.5 M
Purchase Location: DSW
Purchase Price: under $60

Really cool, almost funky, definitely summer-perfect.

I saw these sandals in a magazine and showed my husband, obviously gushing with enthusiasm.  A few days after I showed him, my husband took me on a surprise trip to DSW to find them.  Not only are these shoes pretty awesome, I now have a neat story to tell as well. (My husband is really sweet.  Thank you, Derrick.)

These sandal-heels are perfect for spring and summer days.  They are surprisingly more comfortable than I would have thought.  I absolutely love them.  I must warn though that they are a tiny bit tricky to wear.  They aren't your average "throw-on-and-go" pair.  An outfit with these heels will require a little more preparation.  Make sure they complement your skintone and work well with your ensemble.  Treat them like booties.

I recommend these shoes, but beware, a more advanced stylista attitude is required.


Hot, Hot, Hot in Every Way

Chinese Laundry
Style: Hot Hot
Color: Glitter Blush
Size: 7.5 M
Purchase Location: Dillard's
Purchase Price: under $90

Feminine, Lovely, Chic.

These fabulously glamorous and glitzy golden peep-toe heels are AMAZING.  I am in love with what these heels do for my legs.  These heels may not be entirely appropriate for every office position, but if you can, do wear these shoes when you need a pick-me-up.  I must say that the golden tones work very well with my skintone, light to medium-light, so they act as a nudish shoe with a little more va-va-voom.

With slight cushion, I recommend adding a show insert for your comfort.  I would say, without measuring, that the heel is 4.5-5 inches.  You know how I love to touch the sky...  Actually, my husband is very tall so I have a lot of room to play with for height.

These golden goddess heels are perfect for a night out with the girls or with your significant other.  I wear these heels during the day too, but this is coming from someone who is never afraid of black eye liner.  So wear what makes you feel fabulous, and always be confident in what you wear.  I highly recommend these stunning and glittery heels for the woman who wants a little sparkle in her life.
