Target 50% BOGO

The other day I saw each pair of these shoes on women. I thought the leopard pair might be from Forever 21, so I had to ask and learned they were from Target. One thing I love about the Target about the website is being able to check store availability. I confirmed the shoes were available near me and like a good shopping blogger, went over as soon as I could to check them out.

Buy One Get one 50% off shoes, no code needed. I'm not sure when the promo will end. The new promos roll out on Sundays, so it could end as early as tonite, Sat.

Mossimo Supply Co. Dedra - quilted ($24.99) runs in half sizes from 5.5 - 10 & 11. They're black.

Size 7.5 - I'm 7.5 with a medium foot width. Sometimes I take 8 in pumps or wedges. I like to make sure that there's enough room in man made shoes since they usually don't expand or bend much. I thought it was possible that I might take an 8, but the 7.5 fit very well. TTS, imo.

The quilting looks good. I like the size of the diamonds. The faux leather looks good. Not too shiny.

So cute.

Mossimo Supply Co. - animal print ($24.99)

Size 7.5 - These are cute, too. The paw print leopard is a little cartoony compared to other leopard prints. I usually don't like it, but I do in this case.

A close-up. I thought they might be more hair-y, but they're not. There's a little bit of texture to them. Similar to a chamois, but not as soft. The faux leather trim looked pretty good.

An even closer shot of the print. Maybe it's closer to a thin, faux-suede than chamois. Here's evidence of gluing. It doesn't bother me. No one will see it and geez, the shoes are only $25. I'm not expecting them to last forever.

One concern is the insert that was freely moving around. I'm not sure you want it glued down, though. As I said, for the price, I wouldn't analyze them too much.

These are higher in price, except for the Forever 21 slip ons. I wouldn't be surprised if they're by the same manufacturer.

The Feeling
Thumbsup on both pairs of shoes.
Rhinestone medallion necklace - I like.

Are you into the slip-on trend? I can totally use shoes like these when I take Mini to the park.

EXTRA40 at Madewell

I've been waiting for this one.

Save 40% off promo & sale items at Madewell. I needed to re-order the piazza maxidress in a 4 and got that. One of the other things I'd order is a scarf. I absolutely don't need another, so I won't. But I like to look. In this set is the medina clutch, which impressed when I saw it irl.

Let me know if you found any goodies.

J Crew collection dulci calf hair kitten heels review

Collection dulci calf hair kitten heels (A9771, $345) run 5.5 - 11. Color choices are hazelnut leopard & white black stripe.
  • 2 1/4" heel.
  • Calf hair upper.
  • Leather lining and sole.
  • Made in Italy.

Size 8 - hazelnut leopard - I usually wear 7.5 in most shoes. In J Crew I usually take an 8 in umps & wedges. I thought that might be the case for these pumps. They were actually too big. I'd get a size 7.5. I have a medium width foot.

Lovely, pointy silhouette. Not cartoony or  costume-y.

The grainy cell phone pics aren't capturing all their glory.

Too big in size 8. I'd get the 7.5, which is tts for me. Pass for me because I own the collection Martina calf hair wedges (review).

The Feeling

Here's a irl pic of the Chelsea leopard rain boots . They were too high up for me to reach & try on. They look a little too long in the front for my taste. Love the print & colors, though and I hope to try them on.

J Crew embellished chambray scarf review

J Crew's embellished chambray scarf (A1940, $125) is 82"l x 26"w. The color is called heather navy (HNA). It's currently $88.99 online. It was the same in-store as of a week or so ago.

It's long. It would make a beautiful table runner.

The embroidery is beautiful and the tassels are lush. It draped nicely. It would look great for a victory lap after winning a crafting contest. Or something. It also made me think of drapes.

I wanted to love it. And I do love the scarf. The fabric is heavy, though. It had a wintery feel, even though it's linen, yet the style says summer. Didn't work.

I played with the scarf some more. I was really trying to make it work. It wasn't working.

My shoes are the skinny washed twill utility pants (sz 29, tts for me & love them) and shoes are the Martinas in soft desert (review).

Still fooling around with it, but now it's starting to look like I had an extra 2 glasses of wine, got up from the table and pulled the tablecloth with me to the dance floor.

The Feeling
I really wanted it to work, but the weight didn't make sense and neither did the size. It's so beautiful. 

This one by Sperry Top-Sider is available at Zappos for $25.99. Free shipping both ways and a 365-day return policy. It's available for a few dollars cheaper thru the sister company, 6pm with free outbound shipping and 30-day return. However, the cost is out of your pocket. It's not as intricate as the embellished chambray, but I like this one a lot.

SmACkDowN: SJP strappy pumps

Bella-Vita Claudette II - Free shipping at 6pm. Costs to return.

The Bella-Vita Claudette II is also available at...

* Macy's - Free shipping on $99+. Can return to a Macy's store.

* Zappos - Free shipping both ways.

I have the SJP shoes and haven't worn them. They feel so dainty and cute. I will probably only wear them for dress-up occasions and not with a jeans/blazer/pumps look. Of the two contenders, I liek the Nine West option. The platform on the Claudette is going to make the shoe sturdy and easy to walk it. I like the color of both.

Thanks for stopping by...
