@Kathy_VZ’s new Word Up bags

Kathy VZ Satchel
Kathy VZ Cross-body
I spotted these fabulous bags as I was walking through Dillard’s on Saturday and I’m in love with the print on the bag! I thought my fave would be the bigger satchel bag since, well, it’s bigger and would hold more, but when I compared it to the (just a bit) smaller x-body they both seem to have the same amount of room on the inside. The satchel looks like it has two flaps on the front and back, but they seem to be just for looks, when I got home I looked on the Dillard’s website and in the description it did say that there were two magnetic flaps. But unless the flaps were sewn shut for shipping purposes I didn’t see that the satchel at the store had magnetic pockets on the outside and I couldn’t find a sales person to ask.
The Word Up X-Body satchel in white is definitely my favorite. I didn’t get a chance to try it on with the longer strap since the strap was still wrapped (which tells me that Dillard’s must’ve just gotten these bags in), but there’s definitely enough room on the inside for what I need to carry plus there’s an outside pocket on the front/back (depending on which why you carry it) that fits my mobile phone (EVO) perfectly and two additional pockets on either side. Now I’m going to have to decide whether I should get the x-body satchel or wait and get the Kindle I’ve been saving up for, which by the way the Kindle would fit in the smaller x-body. Why did I have to go into Dillard’s?!?
If you don’t have a Dillard’s in your town, Amazon has the the x-body in stock but they’re very limited and if the satchel or x-body aren’t for you the shopper is available at QVC and I recommend going there because it’ll save you about $20.

@CharlotteRusse Faux Patent Peep-Toe Pumps

I bought these when Charlotte Russe was having their buy one pair at regular price and get the second pair for $15. I bought them in the nude color since I didn’t have a pair of nude heels in my closet and I bought them in my usual shoe size so they do run true to size, if you wear a half-size I’d recommend going up a size . They are comfortable to wear, but do take some “breaking in” especially in the heel which can be a bit stiff. I’ve mainly wore them to the office and I’m not always on my feet, but I have worn these on quick trips to the mall and Target and my feet didn’t hurt at the end. Everyone needs a pair of nude heels in her closet and at $25.50 these shoes are a great buy! You can check them out here.

I love my Duel boots!!

Monday, February 21, 2011
I found these Carlos by Carlos Santana Duel boots at Amazon. I had originally thought I would get them in the tan color, but they looked a bit too western for me (I prefer Ariats for my cowgirl boots) then I saw the taupe color in suede and decided to order them instead. Here’s the best part…I only paid $37 for a $200 pair of boots! Woo hoo!
Lucky for me Amazon does allow customers to post reviews and one thing I did read in just about all the reviews was the recommendation to order a half-size up, which I did and I would recommend as well. These do slouch a bit as you can tell in the photo above, but it’s just a slight slouch and nothing that would make me return them. I wore these to work, walked around Walmart and at a local park and they didn’t hurt my feet at all at the end of the day. I love the studs on the side of the boot, they add just the right touch to the boot and it’s just on one side and the other side of the boot looks like this.
You can see by this photo I decided to wear them with a denim skirt, I’d like to try them with skinny jeans-if I ever find a pair that actually works on me. One thing I did do was buy some Kiwi Suede Protector to spray on them since there was some rain in the forecast, luckily it didn’t rain so I didn’t get to put the spray to the test, but I feel better knowing their protected. Smile
So there you have it my new Duel boots by Carlos by Carlos Santana. My other boots are jealous!

Girly Girl Rome Collection

Saturday, February 12, 2011
This is one of my favorite shoe collections and I discovered them at TJ Maxx, unfortunately I don’t think this shoe designer is around any more. These are great peep toe sling backs that are very comfortable to wear and I’ve gotten tons of compliments on them, especially the pink and grey ones. The black pair remind me of Mystique from X-Men. lol

IMG_8855AThis pair reminds me of the ocean…I wonder why.

IMG_8858AThis is my second favorite pair because of the coloring on them I can wear them various pants/slacks for work.

The one that reminds me of Mystique

If your at TJ Maxx and find a pair of these you should definitely pick them up and if there happens to be more than one pair get them all!
