@CharlotteRusse Patent Toe Sequined Flats

Sunday, January 16, 2011

These are the flats that gave me the idea to start this blog. I’d had my eye on these flats for a while, but I just wasn’t sure about how they would fit and how comfortable they would be and actually bought a different pair of shoes locally because I was actually able to try them on. I’ll review those later, but I kept thinking about these and then Charlotte Russe put them on sale! I couldn’t resist so I checked Charlotte Russe’s return policy and they also have a flat rate shipping of $5.99 not bad, and so of course I bought them. I bought the Black Patent Toe Sequined Flats and also a silver pair but I don’t see those on the site anymore, but they do have a navy color and both are on sale for 10.99 plus and additional 50% off right now. Here’s what mine look like:





These are a size 6, but they do not fit the same. The black sequin flats are a bit more comfortable to wear compared to the silver ones for some reason, and the silver ones are a bit tight so I do find myself pulling them off at my desk, but they’re not uncomfortable to walk in and neither pair slip off when I’m walking. My usual shoe are my heels, but sometimes I feel like wearing flats and when I got my new job I went from wearing jeans every day back to wearing dress pants and I bought some in a petite size which don’t look quite right with my heels.

I actually love my Havianas, but for North Texas winters flip flops are not possible unless you’re crazy like my hubby who thinks anytime is a great time for shorts! And with my new job they’re a definite no-no. So flats have become my flip flops. I love the way both of these look with my pants/slacks/jeans, I can dress them up or wear them on Casual Friday. A problem I sometimes have is with the sequins and some of my slacks, the sequins tend to get caught on the threading on the inside of the hem, but that’s definitely not going to stop me from wearing them. I’ve gotten so many compliments when I wear these, I’m glad that I took a chance and bought them online! So if you’re looking for a great pair of flats now’s the perfect time to buy some and at a great price.

Welcome to my Closet


I’ve decided to start this blog because there are lots of shoes, bags and clothing that I would see online but was unsure about how it would fit, feel, whether it would be comfortable wearing all day and some sites don’t give you the option to review it, so I wouldn’t buy it or I would just wait until we could make a trip to OKC or Dallas so I could actually try it on. Yes even though we have a population of 100K our mall is laughable, but we have gotten a Kohl’s, TJ Maxx and Ross, the trifecta! I love shopping at Kohl’s so much my MIL get’s me gift cards for most major events during the year, but I need more than three places to shop! There will be photos because how can you have a review without photos? Winking smile


So here we go, comments are welcome, but I do moderate and spam is not welcome or tolerated.
