I’ve been wanting to buy a pair of TOMS shoes for a while … but not from Target. Browsing the shoe department at Tar-jay this weekend, I noticed a cute pair of navy-and-white striped canvas loafers with a straight cut across the top of the foot. Very nautical, very Connecticut. One problem: they look a hell of a lot like TOMS shoes. As you might know, the majority of TOMS shoes are canvas or linen loafers with a distinctive straight cut.
Coincidence? I’m not sure. But TOMS loafers retail for about $44. Target’s knockoffs only retail for $16.99. Keep reading »
There’s this problem with a lot of high-tops that keeps them from being more prevalent in our wardrobes. It’s called Boat Shoe Syndrome (because we named it that) and it manifests itself by making the shoes way too wide and clunky for our dainty lady feet. These Nike Dunk Skinny High Top Trainers, however, are skinny-fit and, thus, our new faves. The gray check pattern is cool without being too much, and the yellow swoosh is, simply put, just a little badass. Wear them well with skinny jeans and puffy party dresses alike.

How much would you guess that you spend on shoes in a year? What about a lifetime? Here are the cold, hard facts: According to a recent study, women will shell out about $24,000 on shoes during their entire life. While you regain your resting heart rate after that shocker, here’s a little breakdown on just how you’ll dish out that much money on shoes alone. Say each pair of shoes costs $52, and estimate that between sandals for summer, heels for work, boots for winter, and occasional special events such as weddings, you’ll accumulate about seven new pairs a year. Multiple that times 67 years of shoe buying, and there goes those 240 hundred dollar bills. Obviously, this number is dependent on your penchant for cheap versus expensive shoes — and if you’re a Louboutin lover, that number’s bound to be thousands of dollars higher. Given my current shoe rack is overflowing with about 30 pairs of heels, flats, wedges, and sandals (not to mention my boot closet), I think it’s safe to say I’ll hit the estimated number, much to the dismay of my boyfriend who just doesn’t get my addiction.
