Black Shoes

Something I have been on the hunt for lately is a good pair of black shoes. I wanted an updated version of my pointy black pumps that I wore into the ground, yet something practical and comfortable enough to wear often. The frustrating thing about shoe trends lately is that it's next to impossible to find something under 5" tall. But I've come across a few I still loved that aren't your basic everyday heel and wanted to share. 


(Clockwise from top left) Charlotte Ronson - $78 (my favorite. I first spotted them on Krystal and fell in love), Steve Madden Cathi - $180, Steve Madden Bootie - $130, Steve Madden Pembrook Boot - $130


basic pumps
Steve Madden Felicite Pump - $66, Chunky Suede Platform Pump - $21, Chunky Heel Platform Pump - $25, Steve Madden Sarrina Pump - $67 (I know some of these are VERY similar, I just wanted to give a few price comparisons)

See any you like or would wear? I'm still searching for my perfect pair (though some of these I would absolutely love!) and will be sure and let you know when I find them :)

Have a happy day my dears.

  2. i agree, im definitely on the hunt for the perfect black shoe. and you know i actually saw that last pair of steve madden pumps at marshalls for like $30! go and look so you can snag em for WAY cheaper!!

  3. Love those Steve Madden booties. Just bought them for 20% off on Endless and I can't wait to wear them. LOVE


  4. I've been going crazy over suede lately, and need to find myself a chunky heal for the winter. You've inspired me to begin my search!

    PS. Have been reading your blog for awhile now, and it's so fun to read about your life in Portland! I love it here, and you've done such a great job at showcasing our amazing city! We'll miss you!

  5. dying over these and your nails! happy i found your bloggie!

  6. I need a replacement for my favorite black wedges. I wore them so much that the sole actually peeled off of one of them. I like the top right pair!

  7. Oooo these are all super cute! I just bought new black pumps/ wedges on sale for 1/2 off at Aldo in Pioneer Place. They have a glitter wedge. Not your typical pump - but still practical!

    I think they have some pairs left - you should check them out! Aldo actually makes comfortably shoes (what a concept! haha) that are cute still really easy on the eyes.

  8. The chunky heel is probably my favorite right now. I especially love the Nine West Mary Jane pump.
