New Shoessss

by - Monday, August 29, 2011

Through Suddenlee, I was able to get my hands on this pair of Zara court shoe with snakeskin toe, size 36. They are a great alternative to this gorgeous Alejandro Ingelmo snake pump (sold here) which I fell in love with but knew I could never handle the heel height. The Zara pair did not have the straight heel, but it's walkable at a little over 3" in height. I took my regular size in these shoes and they are a perfect fit. I love the pointy toe without being too Halloween witch-like.

The pumps are surprisingly comfortable, with plenty of padding from the heel to the toe. Unlike some of the flats I own, these didn't require a break-in period. There is some toe cleavage (which I like, but others may not care for) but not as much as the Ann Taylor perfect patent pumps. The only negative is the $90 price tag. I didn't want to take a chance with it selling out before the next semi-annual sale, so I caved.

Two snake print items in a month and a half? I do believe I'm slowly getting over my phobia ;)

*My tripod (and sunglasses) weren't around, so thank you to my patient boyfriend for taking these photos!

belt: Ann Taylor exotic perfect skinny belt (other colors sold here)
skirt: Express asymmetric (similar)
bracelet: Etsy junghwa I Love Knots (sold here)
shoes: Zara court shoe with snakeskin toe (sold here; similar; peep-toe)

    your shoes look great on you and i think it's well-worth the price tag as it seems it could go w/ lots of outfits!

  10. The shoes are so chic - and Zara is great. The prices are super affordable, and it's a great place to get high-end looking type pieces for your wardrobe. Love your look!


  11. I always seem to pass on snake-print anything, but your pumps are pulling a string for me, haha I even clicked on your "sold here" link to see more! I think they are worth the price....for being so pretty, and 100% leather and rubber sole (you know I love rubber soles for comfort). I look forward to seeing more of this pump with your outfits :)

  12. I've heard about Suddenlee and wanted to try it out, but I feel extremely guilty being that I can just haul my butt to the mall, LOL. And I love the snakeskin shoes! I think this is the next animal print I need to add to my shoe collection. I already have leopard and zebra.

  13. I love the shoes! They look great with the outfit.


  14. Beautiful skirt! I found you on cute & little's blog! You have such a sweet style. I LOVE tie front blouses. They make any outfit instantly cuter.

    I Can Be Many Things

  15. That's funny Cee, your post title sounds so happy! Lol (Of course I feel the exact same way when I get a new pair of shoes too ;) I love the subtle print and texture on these!.....def think they'll add tons of visual interest to many upcoming outfits ;)

  16. What a fun and flirty look, Cee. That skirt is flowy and playful. Yay on overcoming your phobia, those shoes are perfect for fall when all the animal prints and skin go wild.

  17. oh these shoes are so gorgeous and i'm loving your accessories and asymmetrical skirt! i think i still have a snakeskin phobia, lol.

  18. @The Little Dust Princess - I've been taking the opposite approach. Done with snakeskin and now I'm wanting a chiffon leopard skirt like this one if only it wasn't so expensive!

    @Elaine A (TOBeautyReviews) - Sorry :( I will put up a disclaimer next time. Does it help the photo is kind of blurry? :)

    @Michelle - Nice! I can't wait to see your outfit posts with the belt either!

    @kimchi girl - Boo! Sorry to hear Blogger is acting up again. Hope you're doing well KG!

    @House Of Jeffers - So true. I can't believe I didn't discover Zara until recently. I've been missing out on so much ;)

    @Olyvia - I've always said my AT perfect pumps are the most comfortable heels I own, but I think these Zara pumps are not close behind. Let me wear them a few more times and get back to you :)

    @Jenn - Does your Zara store have a lot of items in stock? I feel like mine never has the items that I'm looking for. I'm pretty sure Suddenlee shoppers visit the NYC stores, so I would imagine they have greater selection to pick from. So it would be a great alternative if you can't find what you're looking for.

    @Callandra - Haha, I was going for the snake hissing sound with the extra s at the end :D

    @kileen - Ahh.. sorry! Next time I'll put up a disclaimer :(

  19. I do not own any snakeskin items, I am slowly starting to like animal print stuff. I like how the heels aren't very high so it's comfortable to walk!

    btw were thinking of doing a DC trip end of September..maybe lunch or dinner date meet up?

  20. I really love the shoes from Zara! They're super comfortable and good quality as well, very nice leather! Only thing shoebox :( And I store all of my shoes in their original boxes..oh well! These are great and I am glad you bought them and your outfit is adorable too! Love the asymmetrical hem!

  21. I love the shoes!!! They look really comfy too! They look great with your outfit.

    I bought a snakeskin belt during the summer but still haven't had a chance to wear it yet! Now I want shoes instead!

    p.s. love the jewelry too!



I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
