Eye Spy: Shoe news and shoe porn!

Do you like Rachel Bilson? Do you like shoes? Well get a load of this...


My Shop Suey bag looks a lot like this here bag Rachel is carrying



The word on the style blog streets is that Rachel Bilson is the latest celeb to hop on the "Mint" monthly club trend. What will she be selling us? SHOES!


This is supposed to be the first selection for Shoe Mint. Would you buy it? *Image via ShoeMint.com



Yep, Rachel is teaming up with her celeb stylist friend Nicole Chavez and none other than Steve Madden to bring us a monthly shoe club called Shoe Mint. Slated to launch this month, Shoe Mint will bring us a new shoe every month for $79.99. So what do you think? Interested? I am, I already signed up, lol. If there's one thing I like, it's shoes! Speaking of which...







I LOOOOOVE this video...and shoes of course, lol! Use discretion when viewing because the vid contains strong language. Now moving on to the shoe porn.



I love shoes (and blush) so much that a while back when I had some extra cash on hand, I treated myself to a bunch of both. All of the shoes were absolutely gorgeous! Here are the wedges:


Dolce Vita for Target on the left and DV by Dolce Vita on the right.

 

Unfortunately, I only kept the brown Dolce Vita for target wedges. I’d actually bought two pairs of the Dolce Vita for Target wedges, but I returned the nude pair because they were very cheap looking and feeling. Instead, I bought the tan leather DV for Dolce Vita wedges online. I wound up returning them also because they were too big in the ankle area. I did score this pair of nude suede DV by Dolce Vita wedges though:


DV Toni by Dolce Vita


They were a near perfect fit and absolutely gorgeous! I wore them with this dress that I bought from GoJane.com:





And here I am wearing the dress: 


 

Unfortunately, better pictures of me wearing the dress aren't available :-(

On to the other shoes...




All of these gorgeous Chinese Laundry pumps also went back because they wouldn’t stay on my feet when I walked (no matter what kind of inserts I used). I really really loved all of these pumps but alas, it was not meant to be. Here are more pics of them:

Nude suede with leopard print interior!?! Looooove! Too bad they didn't work out :-(

This color gave me sooo much life! Again, so sad they didn't work out :-(



You just can't go wrong with a basic black suede pump...unless they refuse to stay on your feet when you walk :-(






Now about the blushes…*sigh*






As lovely as these La Femme blushes looked in the pan and as many great things as I’d heard about them via beauty bloggers and Youtube gurus, they had to go back. Why you ask? Well, because they contain mineral oil and parabens. Yes indeed they do. With my sensitive seriously acne prone skin, I wasn’t taking any chances. And may I just say that I will NEVER EVER in life spend money with MakeupMania.com again. They didn’t have a problem taking my money but they certainly had a problem giving it back. It took several phone calls and e-mail complaints to get a refund despite me being well within my rights to a full refund. I was not a happy camper. 



That does it for me. Have you bought anything new? Let a sistah know!

Thanks for stopping by my Blog. I'm definitely going into Sephora today with coupon in hand! BTW, I would just have those blue pumps dyed to a darker navy blue and rock them.
