Who doesn’t love a beautiful shoe?! If you can’t appreciate a well-crafted shoe, then we can’t be friends, sorry. Ha! Anyway, one of my favorite shoe companies always has been and still will continue to be Aldo. I had to check out their website to see their newest styles for the winter/holiday season; not to mention I had to sneak a peak at their UNBELIEVABLE sale! Selected styles are 50% off! Yes, fifty. I found a pair that I am in L-O-V-E with and coincidentally the name of the shoe happens to be pretty reminiscent of my last name. It’s called Gagner and it’s adorable and marked down from its original price of $90 to $44.98! I love the sloped cross-crossing of the straps in the front.
I came across two others that are unfortunately full price because they’re newer styles but these shoes are AMAZING, at least in my opinion. The first one is called Basinski and the structure and shape of it oozes high fashion all over the place. Now normally I’m a bigger fan of a more narrow, stiletto heel, but this kind of shoe really works for a big, chunky block heel. I particularly LOVE the powdery gray color, the peep-toe, and sling-back style. This shoe is gorgeous although its price tag of $110 is not 😦 But just think, in a few months when spring peeks its nose around the corner, this too will be 50% off! 🙂 This last shoe is like a perfect little present with a pretty bow on top- literally. The Carthon shoe in bone is a traditional peep-toe matte leather heel with the cutest addition that makes the shoe so lovable; a cute little neatly tied bow at the back of the shoe. HOW adorable would these shoes be with an A-line holiday dress or leggings? TO DIE. They also come in black for all of you non-risk takers but they don’t have the same effect as the bone ones. They sit pretty at $125 but I bet the bow feature on this shoe will generate a trend (or it already has) and you’ll see similar styles from different brands at different stores for a much more affordable price. It’s a guilt trip to spend that much on a pair of shoes for yourself but remember that Santa can always deliver them to you!
