I Am A Shoe-In

But first: Somehow, I became a Marauding Marsupial yesterday for a brief time in TTLB Ecosphere! Why is this important to me? I have no idea! I figured I would be an Adorable Rodent forever (and I am back there now), and I am fine with that. I hardly ever even check how I am doing on there. But for some reason I checked it out yesterday and there I was! Marauding around like the Marsupial I am! For some reason, this makes me very happy!!! Are you part of TTLB? Do you look at where you rank and watch how you are doing?
-------------
I bought 2 amazingly cute pairs of shoes yesterday. At Payless. I am not generally a fan of the Payless...not that I am Carrie Bradshaw, buying Manolos and Jimmy Choos, but other than the occasional Target or Kohl's flip flop, I prefer Macys or Bloomies or something like that.

But, maybe I have mentioned this? Have I told you we are po'? I can't afford $100 for a pair of shoes. So, off to Payless I went yesterday before my interview, feeling like if I got a cute pair of shoes I would certainly get the job. And what did I find? Ah, a Buy-One-Get-One-Half-Price sale! Love that! So I looked around and found 2 pairs of adorable shoes that I love. I wore the black ones yesterday, so I am sure I will be offered the job, just because of that.

So what do you think? Both pairs for $28. Even if you think they are ugly, you just can't beat that deal.

These are green faux suede with brown ribbon and a cute wedge heel. I have been wanting a cute wedge heel for fall. So now I just need to buy something green to wear these with.

And these are the pointy-toe shoes that Clinton and Stacy from What Not To Wear are always touting, and they are right. They look great on. I think I may even wear these with jeans in the fall.

Congrats - I'm the lowliest of the low. Means there's nowhere to go but "up" I suppose.

Hey - do you live anywhere near Cranbury? I found the coolest thing there: A Crate and Barrel outlet store (off of Rt. 130). And the angels started to sing...

Pieces of Me said...

Hey!! I am off running to payless beacuse those black shoes are a must!! TTYL oh here from Michele's!

HighMaintenanceHussy said...

Love both pairs, especially the black ones. Those pointy shoes have been in style for the past few years over here...I resisted them for a long time, but they DO look great on. hehe

My true shoe-addiction, however, is leather boots.

I am not part of any animal community. That I know of.

KARCHAMB said...

I have almost the same black shoes... largely because Clinton & Stacey told me I should... I am considering getting rid of all round toe boots for the same reason :)

-xtessa- said...

great shoes! i especially love the black one... hmmm... you're tempting me to buy new shoes... but i need a new pair of jeans! LOL! oh, the perils of shopping!;)

Guppyman said...

Ya know... I just realized i forgot to add that stupid little piece of code the last time I changed templates....

So I have no clue what I may be now.....

Camy Leon said...

I'm a Payless whore. I love shoes and I like name brands, but at payless I can get them in every color they have. BOGO!!
Those are cute, I like the platform mocassin.
I went yesterday and got These.

some girl said...

I love the black ones! I need to get me some pointy shoes, and the pointier the better. :)

Loz said...

I keep dropping down in the ecosystem but that's OK, I only check it every couple of weeks or so.

I love What Not to Wear, but the UK version with Trinny & Susannah. I haven't seen the US version as yet. Man, there are pointy shoes everywhere, ESPECIALLY Target!

I would love to have my own What Not to Wear team with me at all times...

Danielle said...

like the black ones. i don't think i can pull off pointy shoes. but i'm sure they'll look great on you! you'll have to post a pic when they make their debut.

Molly said...

Those shoes are wicked cute, hope they prove to be your good luck charms! Nothing like a good pair of shoes to set the tone.

Evey said...

Oh I love shoes. I don't nearly have enough, although Chris seems to be convinced that I do. Cute shoes!

Kathleen said...

Those black ones are to die for. Are they in the least bit comfy? I know Stacy is always plugging them, but with my stupid feet (look great on the outside, but all messed up on the inside) and their need for orthotics, cute shoes don't really work. Every once in a while (like today) I wear cute shoes and then I have to go home and cry because my feet hurt.

Last Girl On Earth said...

That second pair of shoes ROCKS! I used to have a major shoe fetish... before I moved into a NY apartment that is! There just isn't any room to put them anymore.

J&J'sMom said...

Excellent shoesies but ummm...heels and preschoolers don't go together! ;0) Thanks for visiting even though I've been a slacker. I do appreciate it!

I tried the TTLB thing...I'll have to go back...I didn't get it. Brain function hasn't been up to par of late...I'm getting back on track now though so I'll try again!

Michelle said...

I'm a lowly flippery fish. I love those black shoes. I have a pair that is very similar and surprisingly comfortable.

Michele sent me today, but I'll be back!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Are you saying you can't get Jimmy Choos and Manalos at Payless?

Marie said...

Oooh! I'm loving your shoes. What a great purchase. Now I'm wanting to buy new shoes.

InterstellarLass said...

I love both pairs! And no, you can't beat $28 for two pairs of shoes. There's a store here that touts all shoes are like $9 or something...I'm scared to go in there. I think it'll probably smell.

J said...

I have the black ones in brown and love them. Cuteness on a budget!

MommaK said...

I just got rid of my TTLB thingy. I was a Marauding Marsupial but with the change of address, I lost my status. I did not want to start over as a bird so I quit the rat race , hee-hee.

Love the shoes. Thanks for visiting me at Michele's today. You are so sweet:)

mcgibfried said...

those shoes look painful..

stick to moccasons(sp?) for the sake of your toes!

Better Safe Than Sorry said...

i have no idea what the ttlb thing is but i love those black shoes. we have payless here, i might have to check them out this weekend.

Twist of Kate said...

Cute play on words Jersey...you are TOO WITTY! :) Keep us posted on the job, and...cute shoes!

Elle said...

Cute shoes!!

annie said...

You ARE stylish and those are soooo cute! I've been talking about shoes all week, we're on the same page, cosmic. Come by and see my new pair!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

You have a tv show called 'What Not To Wear' with Clinton & Stacy? Over here in England, we have a programme with that title, except the girls are Trinny & Susannah

Dawn said...

These are really cute! I'm going to payless now

Danielle said...

those shoes are really cute!!last time i bought a pair of shoes from payless though, my feet got torn up!!

aka_monty said...

HA! I shop at payless all the time~buy one get one half off. YESSS! I'm po' too. :)

By the way, I LOVE the pointy ones. I would never have liked shoes like that until I became a devotee of Clinton and Stacy... :)

Indigo said...

You are so funny about being po!

I can't believe you have to wait until after Labor Day to find out about the job.

Lassa said...

Yesterday at Macy's I saw some shoes that looked almost like those faux suede ones with a rubber wedge heel. So cute! But the ones I saw were $158!!! I tried them on THREE times, but thank god I walked away. I can be dangerous when I want something. Now I will have to go to payless and get the ones you got :)

And so sad to hear about your uncle. Take care.
