I've Got Sole.

After months of sole searching for a good pair to wear at my friend’s wedding, I’ve decided on a pair of the KORS Michael Kors peep toe pump. It was a hard decision considering how much I was set on a pair of Sergio Rossi and fell in love with a pair of Brian Atwood, but in the end I based my decision on a good heel no higher than 5″ and with a solid black heel that wouldn’t stand out in comparison to the other girls shoes.

I purchased the Sadie peep toe pump by KORS Michael Kors from Zappos. The shoe is made out of a gorgeous calf leather with a 4 1/4″ heel. They gave me a good height, without seeming “too tall” and I felt instant comfort. Zappos is a great website to get shoes, handbags, and accesories at a good price. Shipping is free and it’s fast! I ordered my shoes Saturday morning and received them by Monday afternoon. I’ve been obsessively looking at the Alexander McQueen accessories since re-discovering Zappos though and may have to spoil myself again pretty soon!

Now I begin my search for a brand new handbag!

Various from Vegas

We spend President’s Day weekend in Las Vegas for Kathryn’s bachelorette party. We stayed two nights at the gorgeous Aria Hotel, saw Cirque Du Soleil – Zumanity at New York, New York and dined at STK in the Cosmopolitan. I never carry my camera at night, so here are some various pictures I took during the day!

Sole Searchin'.

For months now I’ve been searching for an amazing pair of peep toe pumps to wear to my friend, Kathryn’s wedding. I’ve had my heart set on a pair of Sergio Rossi mini peep toe pump, but this week I finally made my way to Nordstrom and didn’t fall “in love” with them. My next go to shoes were these pair of Brian Atwood suede and ostrich leather pumps. They are 5″ with a 1 1/2″ platform, so they’re comparable to a 3 1/2″ heel.

The ones that I were able to try on were too big, so I’m awaiting the new shipment at Nordstrom to decide if I want them! They felt amazing on, very comfortable and because of the platform, they aren’t super high, which I always say ‘The higher the heel, the better’, but I don’t want to tower the rest of the bridesmaids.

The reason why I didn’t go ahead and order them is because as much as I love these heels and I love Brian Atwood shoes, the gold on the back of the heel looks better in picture than it does in person. The gold metallic heel almost cheapens what is a great pair of Brian Atwood pumps and they are far from that.
So my sole searchin’ continues, but very well may end up back here. My go to designer is always Michael Kors and I already saw a black peep toe pump by Michael Kors I might end up with if I come to a dead end.
