My Favorite Shoes and Accessories

Hello all!! I have been wondering what I was going to do my first post on.  Since I'm new to the blogosphere, I didn't want to do anything too outrageous.  So, I decided to show you my favorite shoes and accessories.  I want to begin with my favorite shoes.

I purchased these shoes as a birthday present to myself. It took me forever to find a shoe I actually liked AND came in my size. Whenever I have money to purchase something, I can never find anything I like. But, when I'm broke, everything is cute, my size and on sale.

Shoes: Calvin Klein
Price: $124
Store: Dillards

I fell in love with these shoes at first sight. But, I didn't purchase them the day I tried them on. I thought about those shoes ALL. WEEKEND. That following Monday, I looked up the shoe boutique that carried the shoe in FaceBook and asked them if they still had my size. They still had my size, and held them for me until the end of the week.

Shoes: BCBGeneration
Cost: $89
Store: Peria

My Ma bought these shoes for my birthday (isn't she sweet!!) She, my sister and I were all in Dillards looking in she shoe department. I tried these on, along with a couple other pair, and she offered to buy them for me. Of course, I didn't turn down free shoes!!

Shoes: Steve Madden
Price: $69
Store: Dillards

I'm a sucker for a great pair of earrings. So, whenever I see some that are cute and priced reasonably, I can't pass them up. Many of my purchases came from online stores on So, If you've never been there, please take this opportunity to do so.

I ordered these earrings from a boutique from I don't remember the name of the store, but he had a lot of nice jewelery and t-shirts. He even sent me a $5 off coupon to use in his store. So, I ended up getting these earrings for less than regular price. Sadly, his store is not open at the present time.

These next two pairs are from an store called Beautiful Destruktion. This store has a wide variety of jewelery and other accessories. And the owner even enclosed a hand-written thank you note with my order. Now, how many companies have you ordered from that do that.

These pairs also came from an store called Art by Cleatress. The store has jewelery, paintings, and other sorts of goodies. I love these earrings, but I will say they're a little bit heavy. She has fast shipping, great customer service and also enclosed a hand-written thank you card with my order.

This two-finger ring I purchased earlier this year from one of my favorite stores, Target. I love this ring, but it doesn't seem to love me back. Even though it's stretchy, it wants to cut the circulation off in my fingers.

This ring I purchased from Africa in April.  This local festival showcases a different African country every year and has many vendors selling their wares.  These include jewelery, bath and body products, food, clothes, shoes and much more. It cost $5.

This clutch I purchased from my other favorite store, TJ Maxx 2 years ago.  I love this clutch because it can be worn 2 ways:  as an actual clutch under the arm, or as a handbag. 

Rounding out my favorite accessories is this handbag I've nicknamed Orange Crush. With a nickname like that, you already know the color attracted me to it. This bag can be carried on the shoulder or in the bend of your arm. I can't wait to wear it!!
