Look For Less!

Valentino “Rockstud” flats are a perfect causal, yet edgy look but may not be so perfect for your wallet.  Available at Saks Fifth Avenue & Nordstrom and priced at $595 they are a considerable investment for flats.

However, if you love them and can’t squeeze them into your budget, Forever 21 has a very similar studded flat that retails for $24.80.

Nail Inspiration! (The french manicure- redefined)

18 Apr

The french manicure has been around since I can remember and has always been a safe nail art alternative for those who don’t want color, but want something cute and fun.  However, if you do love color and french manicures, there are plenty of options for you in all hues of the rainbow!  Check out some of my old favorites along with some new pics I found on Pinterest today for some inspiration! blue gold 1 gold 3 gold 4 gold tips2 gold5 gold6 gold7 gold8 gold9 gold10 gold11 gold12nails pink and grey

DIY- Scuff Removal (2 simple steps)

13 Apr

Good afternoon!  I thought I’d share my scuff removal tips with you all as I clean my heels up after a night out.  I try to clean my heels after each wear, keeping them beautiful for many years!  It’s also much easier to maintain them with a quick wipe down and scuff removal than to let it build up. I’ve always been able to clean my leather shoes pretty easily but had such a hard time with patent leather until one day it somehow popped in my head to try nail polish remover on a big red scuff and IT WORKED!  Since then I’ve wiped away dozens of scuffs successfully!

What you’ll need:

*nail polish remover

*1, maybe 2 Q-tips (cotton swabs)

* 2 minutes of your time

 

Once you have your Q-tips and nail polish remover, you simply dip the Q-tip into the nail polish remover and gently wipe over the scuff in a back and forth motion until it disappears! Once the scuff is removed, flip the Q-tip around and use the dry side to wipe off any access nail polish remover. It’s that easy! and YES this removes those unsightly red Louboutin scuffs! I have used this method on leather and patent leather and have found that it works especially well on patent leather because the surface is so slick.  I have NOT tried it on suede because quite frankly I’m scared that it would smear the stain rather than remove it.  I hope this helps you all next time you have a shoe in need of scuff removal!

Find Your Nude!

19 Mar

If you’ve read my What Do I Wear With That? section featured on this blog, then you already know that I feel every woman needs a nude heel- A wedge or flat always work too.  Nude shoes literally match EVERYTHING, When I can’t find a shoe to match my ensemble, I always turn to my nude shoes to pull the outfit together. It’s practically like your barefoot and they elongate the legs as well which is a plus. With that being said I think it’s great to find a nude that is similar to your skin tone for a nice fluid look.
