The biggest trend for spring is YELLOW! And not just any yellow… nice rich yellows like marigold and lemon yellow. Now yellow wasn’t the top color on the Pantone Fashion Color Report for Spring 2009, but it’s definitely the most popular. We took a poll and almost 75% of you voted that you loved the new
Yellow is such a warm happy color, it’s hard not to be happy when you’re wearing a cute yellow dress because it’s just makes you feel all sunshiny inside. Wearing a bright yellow dress might not be your taste though… I myself tend to shy away from bright colors and that seems to be the keyword for Summer 2009! Yellow is fun, but it has to be worn with caution due to the fact that its very eye-catching!
So I decided maybe I would start with adding a pair of yellow shoes to my collection… But I didn’t want just any old yellow shoes. I wanted to find something unique… A real statement making shoe. Maybe patent leather? Perhaps some studs, since that also seems to be a hot trend right now too…
I didn’t want to make any rash decisions, so I spent a few weeks just keeping my eyes peeled for the right pair. Well last week, I was browsing on SmartBargains.com for handbags and somehow ended up looking at shoes…
I stumbled upon the Dr. Scholl’s Kitten Wood Slingback Pump and immediately remembered that I had included them in a couple different posts. I knew they had caught my eye before, but I never had thought about actually buying them for myself.
When I realized they were on sale and I could get free shipping, I just jumped on it! I knew they normally retail for around $70.00 so finding them on sale $28.78 plus free shipping is like total jackpot!!
So I bought them right then and there. I mean, for that price, you just can’t go wrong!! You see, Smart Bargains periodically has these random and totally awesome sales for relatively no reason at all and if you’re on top of it, you can save a lot of money! Like this morning, I got an email from them offering a 12 hour email exclusive sale of an extra 20% off 200+ new arrivals. And I’ve noticed, the more I buy from them, the more bargains they give them. Now that’s smart!
I ordered them on 5/27, they shipped on 5/30 and I received them on 6/3 – almost 6 days before I expected them to arrive! I put them on right away and was so pleased. They really are a funky pair of shoes, I must say, but they are exactly what I was looking for!
I have to disagree with one of the reviews for these shoes that was left on SmartBargains.com. One person said that these shoes “weren’t designed to be comfortable”. While yes, the heel and platform is real wood, the inner lining is made of a bouncy rubber material that I find to be quite comfortable. The wide straps keep the shoes on while you’re walking and I didn’t find that any part of the shoe dug into my foot or anything. These are probably the most comfortable high heels I’ve ever owned. After wearing them once, I would definitely feel confident enough to wear them all day without bringing back-up shoes.
Right now, these shoes are $39.99 on Smart Bargains. The same exact shoes are currently available at the following sites for more:
And of course if yellow isn’t your color, no worries, these comfortable heels are available in 6 other colors…
If you usually shy away from heels because you know they are uncomfortable or if you’re just looking for a pair of comfortable high heel shoes, you should definitely consider getting Dr. Scholl’s Kitten Wood Slingback Pump from SmartBargains.com while they are still only $39.99.
