First things first. Congratulations to Becki, aka Rebecca Q, who is the winner of the Makeup Goody Bag Giveaway! Yipee! She was randomly chosen by the Rafflecopter widget. Becki, please respond to my email by Thursday evening with your mailing address so I can mail you your gift.
Thank you so much to all who entered and followed and subscribed! I really appreciate it <3 I’ll try to start stockpiling new makeup so I can do another makeup giveaway soon. In the meantime, there will be some more skincare-related giveaways coming down the pike shortly.
Now, on to today’s post. This time, one of my other passions: shoes!
I pretty much hate paying full price for anything. I do whatever I can to hunt down a sale or a coupon. So if I pay full price for something, it must be pretty special.
I fell in love with a pair of sandals. I can’t even remember how I saw them initially because I swear, I wasn’t shopping. I must have seen a picture of them online, and their beauty captured me. I’m talking about the Effel sandal from Vince Camuto.
I definitely fell in love with all the straps, the conical heel, and the caramel color of the leather. When I saw the name, Effel, they did make me think of the Eiffel tower. I read a few reviews of how comfortable the sandals were, and that sealed the deal.
After searching high and low for a way to buy them at a better price, I gave up. The Effel sandal is exclusive to Nordstrom, and because they were new, there were no sales. I caved. I had to have these sandals.
Now that I’ve owned them for almost a month, I know I made the right decision. I adore the look of these sandals. They go with almost everything. And they are actually comfortable. They’ve become my go-to shoes for any time I’m wearing pants or a dress this summer.
In addition to the caramel color that I chose, they come in black and red.
Effel sandals are priced at $118.95. By wearing them so much, I’m amortizing the cost, lol. Maybe they’ll be on sale at Nordstrom soon since the summer is, unfortunately, marching on. So keep your eyes open if the style appeals to you, too.
Do you have a pair of new sandals that you love?
