Season: Spring/Summer 2015

tory_burch_wedges_1

Material: Canvas upper, jute heel

Quality: Very good! The canvas is of a heavy cotton (or feels like cotton); loving the quality of the cork heel as well.

Fit: I’d say the shoes are true to size. I love the peep-toe look and the crossing of the straps, adds a nice edge 😉

Sissi’s verdict: Keeper! Do you agree? Please share!

UPDATE:

I have realised that the version of the sandals on the Tory Burch website has a mixture of jute and cork for the heel.  Mine was simply jute…see below image courtesy of Tory Burch website.

Review: Lanie Stacked Heels by J.Crew

These heels had been on my watch list for a while (as you know, I love ankle shoes).  Also, I was attracted by the stacked heel. Well, see the review below 🙂

What: Lanie Stacked-Heel Sandals by J.Crew

Material: 100% leather upper and lining, man-made sole.

Quality: Very good leather; sturdy heel; should last a long time if maintained properly. I also love the color, some neutral grey that could be matched with various outfit. Too bad this summer has been cool. Feels like Fall already!

Fit: Great! You can really feel the leather lining, almost similar to the Nike air technology by Cole Haan as far as comfort is concerned, at least to me.  I like the stacked heel as it helps for balance because those heels are pretty high, they feel higher than four inches 🙂

Sissi’s Verdict: Keeper!.  Do you agree? Please share!

Big feet…Nordstrom is the answer

I am a shoe size 11 (EU 42) and it is a challenge to find shoes that fit my ‘big’ feet. As a result, the rule I follow is to either buy it if I find it, or forget it because it won’t be back 🙂

So, I was pleasantly surprised to receive the following notification from Nordstrom: they have extended their line for out of the norm feet 🙂 (over size 10 and under size 5).

Well, so many choices and now I have a headache 🙂 You can checkout the shoe haven at Nordstrom.  Some of my picks below, simply click on the image to be redirected. Let me know if you fall for the temptation, and which shoes you select 😉
