Small Pouch - Colorful Flowers

Ni-Chern Designs makes adorable, colorful, and practical pouches and key fobs. I bought a makeup pouch from her almost a year ago, and it still looks as great as the first day I bought it, even after a machine washing after I spilled a bunch of eyeshadow in it.

Key Fob - Park Slope

Oxford Heels

For a few months know I've been ogling this pair of heeled oxford shoes on

Me Too Frost Shoes

They're perfect. They've got the great menswear look, and the heel isn't too high. Most important to me, they look super comfortable and easy to walk in! BUT they carry a price tag of a smooth hundred bucks.

So for a while I've been going back to the page, looking at them, trying to figure out if they're worth as much as my electric bill.

Then wouldn't you know it one day I'm walking in Kohls and I see the exact same shoes staring me in the face with a $29.00 price tag.

Mudd Austen Heels

I picked them up and they are perfect! Nice and comfy. I know I'll be wearing them all through the winter. They're only available online in size 8.5, but check your local Kohl's store for more size options.
