Salvatore Ferragamo Guenda Raffia Loafers

These loafers are sitting pretty next to a piña colada. Of course, this photo wasn't taken recently outside my dwelling. We're getting snow and rain as we speak... Instead, this is another of my Black Friday bounties from my trip to Orlando!

Though it may seem like the raffia material would be scratchy, it is surprisingly comfortable and definitely airy. The brown, Nubuck leather is smooth and a beautiful complement to the lighter raffia.

Definitely a summer shoe, these woven Salvatore Ferragamo Guenda Raffia loafers are perfect for summer sailing or a boardwalk lunch. I can just imagine the sweet smell of saltiness in the air, the clear blue skies, the ebb and flow of the wind and the water, the breeze whipping my hair... Okay. Can summer just be here now? I'm ready.

Beauties in Blue: Kelsi Dagger Erna Pumps

Happy New Year! I hope everyone has had a great holiday season and are settling into beautiful, new 2013.

These beautiful Kelsi Dagger Erna pumps were found on a Gilt sale a few weeks ago. Sadly, I couldn't get them in time for New Years Eve, but they will prove to be lovely shoes for a party or other special occasion.

Though my feet are currently ailing from blisters via other new shoes worn during NYE (ladies, how do you get past the awful blister stage with new shoes?? I need all the help I can get.), I cannot wait to get my newly healed feet back in these beauties. Recommended to size a half down, the Erna pumps are the perfect height for a novice heel wearer like myself. The midsize heel is perfect for parties because not only are they stunning but they are comfortable and easy to get around in. Perfect for your next color-block outfit, these are going to be timeless yet trendy pumps.

Black Friday Bounty: Prada Ballerina Flats in Pink Leather

Black Friday Bounty: Prada Ballerina Flats in Pink Leather

What's more luscious than these pink leather flats? These delicate beauties are from my Black Friday bounty! For those of you who live close to great outlet malls, like here in Orlando, you may have the opportunity to hit up stores like Prada, Escada, Burberry, and Fendi--but the outlet version (i.e. Great products and great deals!). I'm not a super-fan of pink, but light hues like this are perfect.

Prada Ballerina Flats

These Prada ballerina flats are comfy and chic, while being discreet. Perhaps you can't tell from these photos, but looking straight-on at these shoes, it actually takes effort to see the "Prada" label. I particularly love this since it's first-rate premiere designer quality but one can only recognize it if they know the aesthetic of the shoe or if they happen to see the "Prada" poking out from the side.

Prada's ballerina flats are made out of supple Italian leather, and feel like a bedroom slipper, rather than something you'd wear outside. They're extremely comfortable and with care, will age well.

Prada Scrunchy Driving Moccasin

When I saw these shoes, they immediately reminded me of my aunt. Ever since I was a little girl, my aunt's style has really inspired me. She always has the cutest shoes, to-die-for handbags, and most appropriate taste in putting together an outfit. Her love for designers like Prada and Chanel, and her low-key but high class taste continues to inspire my own fashion sense. So, I had to take a picture when I saw these!

Loafers...moccasins...whatever you like to call them--are my favorite kind of shoe! They are comfortable but also exude a classy, casual elegance to an outfit, especially when paired with demure clothing and handbag. Perfect for the office, no doubt. These are beautiful Prada driving moccasins in nude. The colors available are diverse--from a forest green to metallic gold, a bright pink, metallic silver, a cognac-looking brown, and black. There might be more colors, but having seen those in person, the nude and forest green were my favorites! I had to try them on, and they are extremely comfortable, providing good support. I'd recommend these without a doubt!

Stuart Weitzman Elastic-Trim Nude Pumps

I'm not a heels person. Not even these tame lovelies intrigued me.

Being so used to flats, I was hesitant to go on a search for heels for my cousin's wedding. With one of my heels being pretty narrow, I am reluctant to buy higher than 3 inch shoes or even wedges, as sturdy as they are. And the smaller the heel, the worse it is for me. Let's not consider the trips and falls I've embarked on throughout my life... Some people just can't do heels!

Despite all of this, I still went on a shoe-adventure! My friend and I managed to find these comfy Stuart Weitzman pumps. I've always wanted a pair of nude heels that wouldn't slip off, and doesn't hurt me as soon as start to walk in them. The wedding came and went--and let me tell you, these shoes carried me through the entire day! I only got some seriously understandable foot pain after running (well as fast as you can in heels) and dancing for four hours. Simply amazing. And my smaller heel never slipped out of the shoe. This is such a win for me. I had to share!

What are your best shoe moments?
