Yesterday, my friend Katelyn and I were walking around downtown Portland when I spotted a pair of ballet flats sitting on a sidewalk sale table. They were black patent leather with blue sequin details and, best of all, they had been marked down to 10 bucks. I scanned the stacks of boxes for a size 7, found one, slipped them on, loved them, and bought them. The time that elapsed between me squealing, “Look at those cute shoes over there!” to me owning those cute shoes over there was approximately 30 seconds.

Take a good look at this shoe. It is reminiscent of a number of different designer heels currently being featured in magazines and sold at expensive retailers like Bloomingdale’s and Shopbop. Amazingly, however, these stacked heeled sandals — which would look so cute with everything from skinny jeans to a floaty sundress — are from Target’s Mossimo brand and cost less than a hardcover book, a sushi dinner, and a date night at the movies. They are so cute and affordable that not buying them would be kind of silly. And you’re not silly are you? No. No you’re not. We’re not either. We’ll take one in each color.
Jealous of Khloe Kardashian’s color-coordinated shoe closet? I know I am salivating right now, so I can only imagine how Kim and Kourtney feel. Good god, that closet is a sight to behold. “I love all of my shoes! It is a must to have them color coordinated, and to be able to see each and every one of them. I know exactly where each one lives and I can tell if one has even been moved! It definitely helps to put one shoe facing front, and the other to the back. It saves space, but it is also nice to be able to see the back-side of the shoe. I am an organization freak!” Khloe told Elle magazine. The neat freak in me is kvelling. I’ve tried to organize my shoes but they always end up mismatched and all over place. Maybe it would be different if I had 75 pairs of Laboutins. Khloe may be the “ugly sister“(even though she’s hot by all standards), but more than makes up for it in the shoe department. We all have our strengths. [Elle] Keep reading »
For $180, Etsy artist Sheriff Nasir will paint you a custom pair of space age wedge heels. I think they’re absolutely gorgeous, but I might be more tempted to display them on a shelf than actually wear them. How about you? Would you dare to wear the galaxy on your feet?

I don’t know about you, but I will be one of the fashion idiots using this visual shoe glossary as a reference for all future shoe shopping. I’m in the market for a new pair of ruby slippers. [Etsy] Keep reading »
Shoe designer Kobi Levi seems to think we all have an inner child living in our feet. I’m not an expert on psychology or anatomy, but if it helps him create shoes this whimsically fun, it’s definitely a concept I can get behind. See more at Kobi Levi Footwear. Keep reading »
