Hey, lovlies! It’s been such a super-fab month for me. Checking things off my ‘to-do’ list, partaking in new adventures, and finding inspiration in the most unique places. I cannot stress how thankful I am that Spring is on it’s way and bringing TONS of color for it’s arrival. I’ve lately obsessed over a few things that I had to share! Remember to keep trying new things. As I continue to travel through this journey, I’m finding that it’s becoming easier to mix-n-match patterns, try different colors, and go out of my comfort zone for things I wouldn’t normally wear. The latest finds in Spring have shown that matching is just not in the cards! Add pops of color to your outfits by fasening a bright flower to your blazer, or find a patterned heel that you can pair together with a striped boat tee and a pleated skirt. Look out for our latest TOTW. I’m beyond excited to share! Until next time! *waves*

Hi babes! Man, have I missed you guys! It’s been madness around here and I’ve been absolutely itching to get a post up! So.. this has been a hidden secret of mine for some time. But like all ‘unknown’ things, they must eventually come to an end (of being unknown that is, lol). Urbanog.com has been my all-time favorite shoe website for the following reasons:
They are so decently priced, it is RIDIC. I think that alone makes for a keeper in my book! Ranging from $7.00 (yes, seven dot zero zero!) – $50.00
They very often try to emulate other styles out in the fashion industry and are very edgy when trying new looks. New looks can be seen DAILY!
There is almost ALWAYS a sale, promo code, deal-of-the-day or free shipping that pulls me in for the win. Enroll in the emails. They. Are. Worth. Every. Penny!
So, today we are featuring my favorite site! I decided to put Urbanog.com up against some fierce competition: Bakers Shoes and Aldo Shoes.
I’ve had several pairs of shoes from all three and I can definitely say that confort wise, they are all different. Urbanog is usually true to size, while Aldo Shoes is usually a snug fit (due to the fact that they want you to ‘break them in’ as I was so kindly told by the sales girl), and with Bakers carrying brands like Jessica Simpson, MIA and Nicole Lee – They can all differ! While we all know that Bakers and Aldo can carry some hefty price tags, I’m here to show you just how comparable they can be. I’ve listed below some of our top contenders.. and well, you can be the judge! Kisses*

I’ve been in love with these Mary Jane Espadrilles for quite some time. It didn’t help any that they’re made by the one and only Christian Louboutin, but the price tag of $200.00 had me faint at heart. Even THAT is a good price for a pair of Loub’s.. However, you can imagine my excitement when I found out that my all-time-favorite online shoe store, UrbanOg.com, came out with an identical pair for a mere $27.90! Please believe that I can deal without the designer name brand for one pair of shoes. I think you can, too! Let me know your thoughts and if you find any ‘Splurge-to-Steal’ twins come across your path, like I have. We’re already starting this year off on the right foot..er, wedge! ha! Happy Tuesday! OX – M

Urbanog.com Jacoba Espadrille Mary Jane Wedge for $27.90
Do you remember these? I sure hope so! After a night on the town with some great friends, I could not pass the opportunity to wear these puppies!
I paired the jeans with a black blazer from Macy’s, Leopard tank from Express, black strapped wedge peep-toe booties from Doll House purchased at Journey’s, and feather earrings from Charlotte Russe.
