Tuesday Shoesday: Polar Vortex Edition!

Guys, it’s cold here. I know  it’s cold EVERYWHERE, but it’s the coldest it’s been in DC in a very long time.  And it’s our first winter in DC that is actually a real winter!

That being said, we’ve obviously got a running wish list of shoes we need to handle these conditions! Here are our dream snow shoes:

E went to school in Rochester, but it’s just not quite the same when you have to trek through slushy city streets and still look presentable when you get into the office. A pair of either of these boots would probably really help with that.

Women’s Bean Boots by L.L. Bean

S actually loves the cold and is far more prone to taking walks and hanging out outside in freezing temperatures (weird, I know!). So obviously a good, sturdy pair of boots is in need for that kind of business!

And BONUS: everyone needs to own one of these two scarves because they’re amazzzzing and so warm AND on sale right now:

Tuesday Shoesday

We’re back with another addition of Tuesday Shoesday! It’s turning into winter quick, which means the holidays are coming up…so obviously we have to update our shoe collections to reflect! Here are the pairs we’ve currently got our eyes on:

E picks

Hamil Wedge from Vince Camuto

11.12 e wedges

Something about the hidden platform, gold edged heel, wooden wedge. I’m obsessed with these beauties and they have a 5 star review! Heels above 4 inches are too tall for me day to day, and these sit at a comfortable (sometimes) 3.3! They’d be super cute with a skirt or jeans.. and I need them in my life.

Hither T-Strap Pumps from Anthropologie

11.12 e pumps

In case your mama never told you, T straps are by far the most comfortable shoe. They’re what dancers wear to keep their foot in place, and these are just too cute for words. The sparkly bows…I just want to have them on my feet so I can look down and smile all day!

Benissa Booties from Anthropologie

e booties 1112

First off, they named it a shootie. A SHOOTIE. So clever. Anyways, these little guys are dressy and basic, comfy looking and the dipped portion with the brown suede will be perfect all winter.

S picks

Crown Vintage Boots from DSW

20131112-160439.jpg

I just got these beauts from DSW at Pentagon City! I’m so excited to finally have boots that are cute, but also practical. I’ve recently become very anti-rain boot since the last pair I had got destroyed and made my feet sticky and smelly (TMI? oops!) Though these aren’t traditional rain boots, they should hold up in mild DC rain and snow, without being too sticky or difficult. Easy to throw on when running out the door – exactly what I need on a rainy morning. They also only ran me $60 after a coupon so I don’t even feel bad if they only last a season or two!

Melvinia Red Pumps from Aldo Shoes

11.12 s pumps

Ummm…they are bright red with gold accents….you couldn’t have not seen this one coming from me! Red is my absolute favorite color and I love the gold accents with this – I can just imagine them now with a little black dress. Dying.

Dolce Vita “Kana” Pump from Nordstom

11.12 s pumps2

Snakeskin…another classic S move. But I just love the combo with that tan color…and I guess I’m falling for the T-Strap too! But can you blame us?

What shoes are you currently coveting?

Fall 2013 Fashion Must Haves…or so we think!

Its that time of year again… or well into it by now.. its FALL! (At least here in DC, where we’re still getting 70 degree weather occasionally)

There are a few key things I’ve been lusting after (and a few purchases I’ve made) recently! What have you been needing in your closet?

1. A Leather Circle Skirt

Do you like?

Available at DKYN

a longer version for the day/winter

2. Booties.. not really a new story here but I wore my first pair out! 

They really come in any heel size, but they’re incredibly comfortable and chic addition to your outfit. The heel fell off of my favorite tan pair:(

3. Chunky Sweaters with Tight Skirts

From H&M

h&m

4. Holiday season dresses.. for work & play

Here are some of my favorites from ASOS

5. Winter Coats.. its getting chilly round here!

One of each of the above and I should be set for a bit, don’t you think??

Tuesday Shoesday!

It’s our second week of Tuesday Shoesday! And though we thought we had exhausted all our options after posting so many last week, it looks like there are STILL shoes we’re looking out for. Here are out picks for this week:

E picks…

Sole Society Booties

booties elyse

I kept hearing everyone talk about Sole Society so I headed over to the website to see what they’re all about…and I was not disappointed! Plus, they have 20% off your first purchase!

S picks…

Payless Tortoise Shell Heels

I defintiely saw a pair just like this at J. Crew not too long ago – which obviously bummed me out since I could never afford them. Then, in walks one of my coworkers today with these on claiming she got them from Payless. Needless to say, I’ve already placed my order online.

Tuesday Shoesday

After chatting this weekend, Elyse and I came to a funny conclusion – no matter how much we shop or how many shoes we own…there are ALWAYS another pair we are coveting. From this thought came the idea for Tuesday Shoesday, where we post pictures of the shoes we’re currently pining for, or ones we finally splurged on!

S’s Picks – 

S PIcks

1. Chinese Laundry   2. Aldo Shoes   3. DV by Dolce Vita Flair   4. Francesca’s Collections
5. Jeffrey Campbell   6.  AK Anne Klein   7. Zara

E’s Picks – 

E Shoesday Sept 24

1. Marc by Marc Jacobs   2. Marshalls 3. Sigerson Morrison 4. Zara

5. Coconuts   6. Mia Ashley   7. Stuart Weitzman 50/50

And speaking of Shoesday…Piperlime is having a special 20% off all shoes special just for today! So if you’ve been been holding off lately, this is the perfect excuse to finally splurge!

In the future we may just do a quick post of one pair we’re really loving, but we had a lot of catching up to do for today! What about you? What shoes are you currently coveting?
