Orange You Glad?

I am always on the hunt for that most elusive of items – an inexpensive pair of shoes that doesn’t look cheap.

There’s a reason why most of the affordable ones are priced so low. The stitching looks bad, or the material is stiff and hard to wear (especially for a wide footed lady like myself).

Aah, but these – finding these beauties was like hitting the jackpot.

While perusing the Target clearance racks in search of deals on shoes for the kiddos, I stumbled by happy accident upon these orange gems, nestled in among the toddler sandals. It was as if they were waiting there just for me.

And when I checked the price tag (a mere $14.98 plus an additional 5% off for shopping with my red card, of course!), I swear those fluorescent lights shined a little brighter, and somewhere in the distance a Hallelujah chorus began to play (though that could’ve been me singing, I was so full of glee).

My new shoes even passed the Jane Lantz quality test – and that, my friends, is an incredible feat in and of itself.

  • Ever do something so ridiculous that you didn’t want anyone to ever know? Well, last week I did.  But short of wearing a bag over my face there was no way of hiding my stupidity.  The evidence of my misfortune was smack dab on the front of my face. Here’s the thing.  I pride myself in being able… [Continue Reading]

  • I have such a hard time dressing for this season. Our weather here is chilly in the morning, as hot as 80 midday, and cools back down in the evening. When you’re out and about all day, (or busy opening a retail shop!!!) there’s no time to change. My solution is the t-shirt dress and… [Continue Reading]

  • Bobbi Jo Fischer says that the best part of her job is seeing “afters.” And she must see a lot of good ones, because she is an independent rep for Nerium, creator of the amazing Night Cream (Nerium AD). Bobbi Jo offered Tammy and I the opportunity to try this incredible product for a month.… [Continue Reading]

    Wild About… A Beauty Roundup

Comments

  1. Those sandals are so cute! And only $14.98??? Lucky duck. I might have to go searching my Target today!

  2. Those are so cute! I just found two cute pairs of sandals at Target last week and had a buy one, get one 50% coupon, so I had to bring them both home with me! I think Target has nice affordable shoes.

  3. I love those sandals! We don’t have Target here…yet. Apparently, it’s coming. But I definitely stock up in the U.S. in general on shoes :: deals are ridiculously better than here….especially with the extra “x” percent off sales that often run.

    Come and enter our eShakti giveaway! xo

  4. Those shoes are cute. I usually buy my shoes from 6pm.com, since they have some really good sales.
