Fringed t-shirts are easy and chic pieces to pair with jean shorts, leggings or skinny jeans. I love how they remind me of those retro, fringed tops worn by old school roller skaters, rockers and hippies from back in the day. Well, I decided to take on a Do-It-Yourself challenge and make my very own chic, fringed t-shirt. It was soo easy and virtually fool-proof. Below are 10 EASY steps to help you create your own fabulous fringed t-shirt. Just take your time and have fun!

Shoe Review ~ Zara High Heel Sandal

HIGH HEEL SANDAL by ZARA

HIGH HEEL SANDAL

Review
The High Heel Sandal by Zara is great! It is so feminine and girlie.  The heel is approximately 4 inches, with no platform, suede material and leather detailing. The heel and material definitely makes this a comfortable sandal that has a great deal of flexibility. It has a slight vintage look and the colors are neutral enough to pair with a variety of looks. The High Heel Sandal looks really great on the foot and allows your spring pedicures to pop on through. The High Heel Sandal is the perfect addition for the spring/summer seasons.

Grade/Recommendation
A
Fabulous sandal with lots of styling potential and options.

Style Points
The High Heel Sandal would look great paired with a “fitted” pencil skirt, body conscious dresses, skinny jeans and trouser shorts.

Shoe Review ~ Shoemint Sarah

SARAH by SHOEMINT

shoe_side

Review
The Sarah by Shoemint is a really cool sandal. With its wooden, stacked platform heel and intricately woven raffia detailing these sandals exude a laid-back sexiness.  The 1 inch platform and 5 inch heel creates a stable foundation and absolute comfort. The raffia material, which adds just the right amount of interest, does not scratch or rub the skin. The Sarah had no comfort issues, lots of stability and overall support and design.

I am definitely happy about adding the Sarah to my summer shoe collection.  I think they are sexy, feminine and ultra chic. I think that this will be my “go to” sandal of the spring/summer seasons.

Grade/Recommendation
A
A must have for your spring/summer casual attire. The Sarah feels good and looks great. I plan to get plenty of wear out of these with warmer weather right around the corner.

Style Points
The Sarah would look great paired with a variety of casual spring/summer items: denim jeans, chambray shirt dresses, shorts and sundresses

39.99 (79.99)

Fashion Steal – Tammy Plank Wedge Sandal (Target)

TAMMY Plank Wedge Sandal by TARGET

Women's Xhilaration® Tammy Plank Wedge Sandal - Yellow

Review
I literally stumbled across this adorable wedge sandal during one of my weekly shopping trips to Target. I honestly had no intentions of purchasing anything other than the items on my shopping list. But, you know how things are; you cannot go into Target without picking up something EXTRA!

Well, let me just say that this was an extra worth its weight in gold. I love everything about this sandal. The color, the fit, the design and the overall look is so chic and pleasing to the eye. They add the right amount of color to any outfit without being over the top. The Tammy is your essential summer sandal. Dressed up or down, either way you have a definite winner throughout the spring/summer season.

Grade/Recommendation
A
A wonderful fashion addition at a great budget friendly price

Style Points
The Tammy would look great paired with: Denim/chambray shorts, sundresses, denim/jeans, and chambray shirtdresses…pair with accessories and belts in the same mustard color family.

Price/Availability
29.99

Available in mustard and black

Shoe Review ~ Shoemint Lindsey

LINDSEY by SHOEMINT

shoe_side II

Review
The Lindsey by Shoemint is a beautiful, classically designed stiletto with a solid structure. It has a great mix of traditional and trendy ~ peep toe, ankle strap, no platform ~ features popular in footwear for the spring/summer season. I was attracted to the Lindsey because of its’ retro charm and versatility. It has the potential to last through several seasons, if not years, in my wardrobe.
 
The Lindsey has a charming snake embossed design, a moderately thin 4.5 inch heel and an adjustable ankle strap. Because there is no platform for additional support the instep is quite steep. This initially caused some discomfort because the ball of the foot takes most of the pressure. A gel insert should provide some additional support and increase overall comfort.
 
Grade/Recommendation
B
I really like the Lindsey and would recommend it to those looking to add a smart, fun, versatile shoe to their collection.
 
Style Points
The Lindsey would look great paired with your favorite LBDs, a pair of dark rinse skinny jeans or bright trouser shorts.

Zara (Fall/Winter 2012) Shoe Haul

We have a ZARA shoe haul y’all!!!!

Recently, Zara had their annual Fall/Winter clothing, shoes and accessories sale. I managed to grab some amazing deals while shopping their online store. So, for those that don’t know, I am a heel, platform, stiletto wearing woman. I only own one pair of sneakers, a few pairs of flats but everything else is at least 4 inches or higher. I adore Zara’s court shoes. So I grabbed 2 pairs of court shoes and yes, 2 pairs of adorable flats. I mean, there is no way a true fashionista could pass up on these beauties…lol.

Anyhoo, I am, as always, very pleased with my purchases. Each shoe was well made, well designed and fit great. I had no problems with the details or structure of each shoe and will definitely be adding more and more shoes from Zara to my collection.  SN: Another shoe haul featuring more from Zara and Shoemint will be coming soon.

So, lets take a look at the shoes…

Velvet Fantasy Ballerina (35.90/19.00 sale price)…REALLY! 🙂
Black Velvet and Cobalt Blue Flat (pairs perfectly with dark rinse skinny jeans)
