You know I love me some shoes so obviously that’s what I set my heart on to buy. Well, some shoes and about a million other things! We did do quite a bit of shopping during our NYC visit, but I didn’t buy as many shoes as I always do when I am in London. One of my favorite pairs (and the only pair of heels!) are these Seychelles “Ready for Anything” heart heels in burgundy suede. I absolutely adore the heart detail (they remind me of my favorite Vivienne Westwood for Melissa lady dragons) and I really like the color combo.
I also like the shape of the heel and I think the shape of the shoes in general is really flattering. I’m usually all about the heels but like I said, this time around I only bought one pair of high heeled shoes. We were doing so much walking all the time, I just really wanted to buy comfortable things.
Speaking of comfortable things, I’ve talked about these shoes in my previous post, my goodness, are they comfy!
The Michael Kors Hamilton loafers are one of my favorite purchases from NYC. I wore them out for a full day of sight seeing and they passed the test.
The next pair of shoes that I bought (they were actually the first pair that I bought in NYC, they cost 40 dollars at Macy’s) are these Steve Madden Madden Girl “Gemini” Boots in grey. I wore these for one day in NYC and was really surprised that they were also super comfy and I didn’t get any blisters! From boots that is quite the accomplishment! My favorite thing about these boots is that they can be worn two ways: either the way you see in the photos above, or they can be folded over as ankle boots, shown in the photo below:
My next pair is another pair of loafers and I have to stress that they look MUCH better in real life than they do in the product photo. They’re from Coach and are the Ruthie loafers in ginger.
The last two pairs are both slip on trainers. One pair is slightly crazy (Circus by Sam Edelman “Cruz” slip on trainers)
and the other is a bit more elegant (Kenneth Cole Reaction saltnpep slip on trainers).
So that’s it for the shoes, as for the rest of my purchases I bought: three dresses, two skirts, a jean shirt, three pairs of jeans, a long sleeved tee, a clutch bag, a really cheap jean jacket, a fluffy hooded vest, three fake leather jackets (black, grey and brown), a camouflage jacket and a new suitcase. And also books. I always buy books…

You have the most enviable show collection! I love the Melissa VW shoes! What books did you get? I’m forever buying books, I have too many to read atm! X
Thank you 🙂 I got the second volume of The Medical Detectives by Berton Roueche (I used to read the first volume on my lunch break when I was working at NIH), then Dark Places by Gillian Flynn, A Girl Walks into a Bar by Helena S. Paige, Richard Scarry’s Best Storybook Ever (it was my favorite storybook as a child and I bought it for if I ever have kids), I also bought Nicky Hilton’s 365 Style (I really like Lauren Conrad’s books Style and Beauty and I thought this would be similar). I can’t recall if there was anything else, there may have been one more book or two 🙂
i love your taste in shoes! nice choices!
I love hearts on shoes, there’s a new pair of IC (forgotten the name) with a similar heart shaped front to these…quite low for me, but I like the look of them. Those foldy down boots look cool. I just spent an obscene amount of money on the twirling ballerina shoes from IC today…I got the green pair!
I was looking at the white pearly ones but my goodness, the price! I wouldn’t get away with buying them 😦 will just have to admire yours 🙂
