OOTD : Purple Payson

 I have been completely obsessed with my Jusfab Paysons.  I started out with the nude and ended up ordering this shoe in all three colors (nude, purple & orange), and if they had other colors I would probably have to add those as well.  What is it about this shoe that has me obsessed you ask?  Well it is a classic mary jane style shoe, but with the added platform, and at 6 inches high it elongates your legs making them look extremely sexy ;)  

Tips on sizing, if you have a wide foot like me you might want to go up .5 size, I have the nude and the purple in my true size, and the orange I went up .5 size, and the feel much more comfy.

Inspiring women: Karen Danielle Torres

I wanted to start interviewing women who have inspired me.  I first met Karen Danielle Torres through the Shoedazzle facebook page a couple years ago.   We both shared our LOVE for shoes, and I really admired her sense of style.  We were both part of a shoegroup on facebook Shoedivas, and that is how we start getting to know each other and became friends.  Aside from her amazing style, she is very positive, very outgoing, and humble. 

Question: What does true beauty mean to you?

Karen: I think true beauty comes from the inside. It starts with being kind to yourself and believing in yourself. Personally, I do like to do my hair and wear make up and wear a variety of different clothing styles, but a woman who dresses plainly and pulls her hair back, but always has a smile or a kind word is even more beautiful.

Question:  What makes you feel beautiful?

Karen: Lots of things make me feel beautiful. Being outside on a beautiful day, listening to good music, getting pampered, or hearing compliments from my friends or my husband all make me feel beautiful.

Question:  Who is your style icon?

Karen:  I love Gwen Stefani's style! I have been following her since the early 90's! But I also love Jennifer Lopez's style and Jennifer Aniston. They are all very classy and unique and stick with what works best for them.

Question:   You always look so happy, where do you draw your strength from?

Karen:  Well, to be completely honest, I'm not always happy and I actually struggle with depression. I just don't post pics of myself on those days. But I do draw my strength from my faith in God. I know that He loves me and has the best in store for me, even when things may hurt or times seem rough. Sometimes I forget that it is by trial that our faith grows and nothing is more beautiful or strong then faith in the Lord.

I also feel strong in other ways too though. As I get older, I try harder and try more new things. In this past year alone, I've run a half marathon and went ziplining even though I was terrified at first! Conquering a fear is definitely strong and beautiful!

TGIF: Purple Payson & Neon Delights

I already reviewed my nude Payson's, but I had to share my purple Payson's I just received today.  Oh my goodness I am in LOVE.  Purple is my favorite color, I only have a couple of purple shoes, but these are my new favorite purple shoes.  I am so glad I ordered the orange Payson's thanks to a couple of you who used my link to purchase, I ordered the orange one's with a free credit!  Thank you very much for using my link ladies.  If you are not a Justfab member, please use my link to purchase your very own pair of fabulous shoes, you will get a 50% off discount your first pair of shoes!

Here is a picture of me wearing my purple Payson's the color of the first pic I posted above is the most accurate color of the shoes.  

I went to Kohl's today and ran into these beauties!  These are Rock & Republic neon pink patent leather shoes.  I had to have them, they were on sale for $44.99, and I had a 20% off discount, so they came out to be about $36.00 with the discount.  I usually go up .5 size in pointy toe shoes, my true size fit me in these since they seem to run wide.  I love the reflective silver heel on them, they are perfect :)

Here is a pic of these beautiful shoes.

I really felt inspired by these yellow shoes I got a while back at Charolette Russe, so I decided to make a necklace with yellow, pink and orange beads.  I love the combination!  I am getting inspired to create  pastel and neon color jewelry for my store so please make sure to check out my Belladazzle fb page.

Payson & Showstopper

I received Payson a day early, it's always a good surprise to receive your shoes a day early!  I ordered these shoes on the 1st from my Justfab boutique.  I had originally purchased  Edith from Shoemint, but they felt too high, and I almost twisted my ankle twice while trying to walk in them around my house.  I ended up selling Edith, but when Justfab came out with these in our June boutique, I wanted to give them a try.  The Edith were more of a taupe color, and these are more of a nude color, which I think is prettier.  I tried them on right away, and they fit true to size, and they are comfy!  So happy I ordered these, the purple Payson's are on their way to me!

Purple Payson, my favorite color I had to order these, I just wanted to make sure my true size fit me before ordering.  Use my link to sign up if you aren't already a Justfab member, and receive your first purchase at 50%!

Tangerine Payson, I don't use orange very much, but it is a hot color this season, and a beautiful shoe!

I also received these beautiful shoes today as a prize from Bakers in the Shoeternity contest, I have won once before, and was surprised that I won look of the week again!  Showstopper is the name of these shoes, I was really interested in the pink version of these, but they were sold out in my size, so I decided to choose these as my prize.  I was not disappointed when I received them.  These are perfect, so sparkly in person the pics definitely do not show how sparkly the crystals are.  Thank you Lindsay for allowing me to win Look of the Week again, please go check out Bakers, they have so many pretty shoes!

Dreaming of New York City

It was a dream come true when my husband and I took a trip to the Big Apple.

  One of our first stops was Central Park, it is beautiful there!  

We had our portraits drawn in Central Park.  The artist did a really good job at drawing us, I was very happy with the results.  

We went on the Staten Island Ferry and passed by the Statue of Liberty.

 A beautiful view of the city from the Ferry.

 I saw the Kardashian Dash store when we were in Soho.
