Vegan What??

Yesterday I was digging around to see what vegan shoe options I could find (before you ask, no I'm not a vegan). I was quickly discouraged by the vast amount of fugly options I found floating around the interwebs.  Everything I found was either a crock-looking flat or a big clunky old-lady styled heel.  Those options weren't going to work for me.

Somehow I stumbled upon LuLus (you can also find them on twitter) and was pleased to see that they had a large selection of super cute vegan shoes & boots. Then I realized how reasonably priced their shoes are - BONUS!

I decided on the Bamboo Recap 01 Taupe Faux Suede Platform Wedge and then I left work thinking I'd just order them today...well they no longer have my size :( However, if you were an 8 or 9 hurry up and scoop these beauties up!

 See...aren't they pretty???

Not one to be stopped by my number one choice in footwear being unavailable, I kept looking and found the Mixx Laura 08x Gray Suede Studded Stiletto Heel - and they had them in a 10. Done!!


They're also available in Blue and Black. The black was really tempting but I have approximately 67 pairs of black heels in my closet so I went with the gray. Don't they kinds of remind you of these pumps that I was lusting over this summer? 
I was bummed to find that LuLus blocked all of their coupons on RetailMeNot, but fear not I kept digging and found a 25% off code on CouponFollow.  "StyleWatch" was the code that I found worked and offered the biggest discount -it took $7.80 off of my new shoes! 

I can't attest to the quality of LuLus products just yet, but as soon as my new beauties arrive, I'll be sure to let you know.

A Girl Can Dream

Don't worry, I'm not going to be blogging about outrageously expensive shoes everyday, but to kick things off I've decided to blog about the #1 pair of shoes on my wish list, Christian Louboutin's Rolando Hidden-Platform Pump. 

At $695, they're actually "reasonably" priced for a classic Louboutin.  They're available in a beautiful red as well as black, but if I were going to be adding them to my collection, I'd go with black. Just look at the beautiful crescent toe, the stunning black patent leather, and the 5 inch heel.  Oh and let's not forget the signature red sole. What's not to love?
