Playing With Shine, Studs and Stones

Love my recently acquired Jeffrey Campbell Mel shoes.  Serious bling for the soles, and with the lower heels, I can actually walk in them comfortably.  This Bebe dress looks like a garbage bag with the sheen, but is stiffer and way more uncomfortable than if I was wearing said bag.

balmain-studded-heels_net-a-porter1Going back to these shoes, yes, they are Balmain knock-offs, but who can afford to pay $2,300 for the real deal available at Net-A-Porter?  There’s talk about the sold-out-everywhere Zara ones being better than the Jeffrey Campbell shoes (and Aldo pairs), but I’ve never seen the Zara ones up close, so I can’t make a judgment call.  Plus, the Zara shoes are selling on eBay from $150 upwards to $300.  All I know is that I’m in love with these shoes and they can dress up a potato sack if I was wearing one.  True story.

    Um, yeah totally borrowing these from you. Hopefully I won’t be too paranoid about messing up the bling.
