I haven’t been loyal to any daily readers out there b/c I failed to post a blog for the day, but it’s still Wednesday & I’ve got a little time left & a little something to dish on. See these shoes here? I wore them all day today, from 8:30am until 10:00pm. Of course my work day consisted of a lot of sitting time in my cubicle & then I drove back & forth to Southampton (1hr - 45min each way), so I’m cheating a little bit here. You dan’t deny that that’s a long day of the same pair of heels & I can’t complain one bit about how my feet feel!
I posted their red companion in a Quickie Darling Deal & Steal blog last month about suede shoes @Payless & I’m definitely kicking myself for not getting the red pair when I had the chance. The sturdy heel & knot detail just scream a little bit Marilyn Monroe & they’re just so easy to add to just about any look. Back in April, as seen in a Luxury Look-Alikes for Less posting, I was lucky enough to score the nude pair, which have lasted me all summer & into fall so far! They’re by far, my sexiest, most classic looking heels for when I want to be polished, but playful at the same time!
Right now these Fioni ‘Kutie’ knot platform pumps are on sale for $19.99, marked down from $27.99. If you’ve got too many black shoes & are looking to spice things up with an unexpected pop of color, the navy ones are also on sale. However, the black is only available in both regular & wide width sizes.
I wanted to share these b/c they were so stylish to go with my work outfit, consisting of a knee-length abstract print black & white pleated bubble skirt that I paired with a patent red Nine West belt & wore a tucked in black tissue tee to help show off my shape. On top, I finished off my look with a white short-sleeved cardigan & went about my work day, earning a handful of compliments on my ensemble. After, when I was headed to an Open House @SUNY Southampton for their MFA program (cross your fingers, I applied for the spring), I wanted to sit more comfortably in my car during the long, rainy commute. So I changed into my dark denim bootcut jeans & a sparkly black long-sleeved cardigan over my untucked tee. Somehow I had the time this morning to think of bringing my silver & gold braided belt to complete the very dark look. I feared for the safety of my peep toes b/c it was raining pretty heavily, but now I’m home & they’ve withstood the elements successfully!
Do you have a pair of go-to comfortable heels? Do you have any Payless stories? Would you buy & wear these? Happy Styling!
