Show Me The Shoes: GOjane’s Great Up To 65% Off Booties Sale!


GOjaneI’m guilty of doing some fabulous Black Friday & Cyber Monday shopping… on myself, but why not? The deals were just too good to miss & my wardrobe needed a bootie update.  Even though the Thanksgiving holiday sales have ended, it’s time to start thinking about winter, but fortunately, GOjane is offering an up to 65% off booties sale, which means that shoe indulgence may go on, without breaking your budget.

There’s so much potential for sprucing up your winter wardrobe by just changing up your footwear & that starts with the canvas oxford heel ($25.95), which will change up your jeans & sweater look, as well as transcend your professional ensembles with the mix of textures.  The feather rosette bootie wedge ($13.95) is the perfect shoe for a feminine look, paired with a lacy sheath dress or tweed skirt & blouse.  For casual days, I love the idea of the slouchy leatherette ankle boot ($16.95) for wide leg jeans with a flyaway cardigan & layers of beads.

GOjaneI’m also crazy about wedges this season, which is why I’m sharing the lace-up bootie wedge ($28.60). They’re available in four other colors & will add a menswear edge to any outfit.  For those of you who aren’t scared of a high heel, I recommend the chunky heel booties ($29.00) for your knit tunic& leggings look, or to add a modern twist to a preppy sweater dress.  Lastly, if you’re not afraid of color, check out the two-tone velvet booties ($30.80), which especially bring out the holiday spirit.  These hues & the combination of textures with sequins, leather, & corduroy will make your winter look that much more dimensional!

Do you prefer ankle booties instead of knee boots? Do you find it easy to style them with your current wardrobe? What’s your favorite shoe style for winter? Happy Styling!

Inside A Style Blogger’s Closet: Ciao Style Darlings, From Italia!


Ciao Style Darlings! My time in Italy is coming to an end, but I wanted to share a little something from my trip.

A few days ago the weather was particularly gorgeous, for it being January & all, so I took a stroll along the Arno river, wearing my favorite sweater dress with cable knit panel ($22.50) in green.  Also, I’ve been leaving my footprint all over Florence in my boots from Payless.

Additional favorites include my leggings from Target, as well as flats boots & another sweater tunic.

I should also mention that I’ve made a few trips to the local H&M, finding such affordable fashions, including a green short-sleeved dress. As it turns out the conversion from Euros to U.S. currency wasn’t pro-budget, but there were dozens of other sale items that I’m bringing back with me from the international retailer.

Tomorrow (Saturday) is my travel day, & then I’ll be waking up on Sunday back on Long Island, reacquainting myself with all the shoes in my closet that I’ve been missing.

Hope everyone’s having a stylish 2012 so far! Ciao! Happy Styling!
