Find My Shoes: Purple wedding heels & Jeffrey Campbell Shadow
So…obviously it’s been awhile since I’ve updated the site. I didn’t intend to stop posting, but the demands of life got pretty intense for me over the holidays: A project at work that required a lot of extra hours and family stuff basically took over. But, it seems things have calmed down a bit and I really want to get back to something I love: shoes! And talking about them on this blog! I plan to get back into the swing of things and I thought answering some shoe questions I recently received would be a good way to start. You may have noticed the gorgeous Enzo Angiolini Thaddea in purple pictured above – it’s a shoe I loved the first time I saw it, but I also posted it for a more specific reason: I had a request from Jasmine on Facebook to help find purple / eggplant wedding shoes, preferably with some bling. These are one of my favorite fancy purple pairs of the moment – I’m loving the feather and gem detail, not to mention the color – and they can be purchased at Lord & Taylor for $129. Apply coupon code FINAL to get 15% off, making them $109.65 with free shipping (expires 2/7). They are also available at Nordstrom for $119.95 with free shipping.
I really like the Enzos, but I also realize that every bride is different in what they envision themselves walking down the aisle in. Thus, we need options, options, and more options, which works out well because I never mind checking out more pretty purple shoes. I think the Poetic License Spectacle in purple is a sweet choice. It has a more classic vibe, but the all-over texture adds extra interest and the bow is bedecked in rhinestones for added bling. Plus, the heel is just over 3 inches, which is quite moderate compared to many shoes available these days and may translate to additional comfort – avoiding foot pain is an obvious plus on the big day. The Poetic Licence Spectacle is available at Endless for $60.23, down from $98. If you spend over $100 on eligible styles, including this pair, you get 20% off through 2/14.
Here are some more dark purple heels I found, in various styles that range from classic to a bit more over-the-top dramatic (or somewhere in-between):

Badgley Mischka Lissa in purple for $245 with free shipping at Zappos.

After a nice dose of purple bridal shoes, we’re going to switch gears to something completely different. I had an email question from Shadae about the shoes above, which were pictured on Tumblr, and where to find them. I actually recognized them right away because, well, this is the kind of shoe you remember once you lay your eyes on it.
This is one of Jeffrey Campbell’s latest naughty creations, the heel-less, totally spiked out Jeffrey Campbell Shadow. It’s definitely packing some serious edge for the fearless fashion lovers among us and can be found in black leather or patent at Karmaloop for $264 (no promo codes apply at this time) or at Solestruck in black leather for $264.95.
On a related note, Solestruck also offers the Jeffrey Campbell Prickly, a mary jane heel-less style in beige or black, for $219.95. Update: The Jeffrey Campbell Prickly in beige is available for $219.90 at Akira.
Have a great weekend!
