Poetic Licence to KILL!!

Ok so, I know the first thing you're thinking is HELLO solesister?? License is spelled wrong! Well, I know that, but I guess since this brand is from the UK, thats how they spell it!

The shoe you are viewing is a recent purchase I scored on my weekend trip to B-More with my extended family. I had the pleasure of hanging and sharing a room with Allisa from Stylish Curves ( She writes about fashion for all the curvy gals out there. Check her out!

Here are the details of this shoe: It's called Oceanview. It's about 5" tall in total. It has a 1" extended plastic platform, (that looks like a heart) with another 1" middle cork platform base. The thing that stuck out to me was the orange suede bow-tie like thing in the front. It's soooo cute. I originally saw the shoe in grey and burgundy, then in taupe and blue. But, the world stopped when I saw the orange ones. It was a no-brainer that I had to get them. AND, they were only $69

So, now for the fit and comfort: They get a B+ from me. I say that because I wore them yesterday and although they were very comfortable, my feet were sweating (no bueno!!) The inner material, which is designed in polka dots, is man-made. Feeling the material its alittle tough so I guess this is why my piggies were hot. Other than that, they are ROCK STAR shoes. I got tons of looks, glances and compliments. I expect to wear them often..

PS Sorry for the bogus pictures I couldn't find the images online or a website for the brand, However, I did find the brand is available on

I cant breathe...

...because the image you see above took my breathe away. Really Christian've just killed me. I am writing dead. These beauties are simply the best F*&king booty I've seen in a very long time. Price point (dare you ask) is $1,555. Yes that right..hella expensive! If a months rent is too much for you, hop on over to and pick up a pair for $933 (that's a steal, right...LOL)

Details: Gray suede and black leather bootie with cross stitch seaming (which i think is pretty cool) 5 1/2 heel with 1 inch platform. Sexy at its best. And of course the iconic red sole. Pair these babies with a dress or leggings and you are good to go.

Santa, are you listening.. these would be great under the tree..(I'm just throwing it out there)

I'm a "Stud"

I am so in love with these Dolce Vita "Trinity" studded pumps that I might just marry them! How FLY are these shoes? I saw them in a recent blog post and was like WOW! Love at first sight!
After doing some research, I found them online at and they are $210 (always do your research because Neimans has them for $225). Right now 'sole'sister is a 'broke' sister, so that price is WAY out of my budget. But looking is always free (or as my friend Lisa would say "free ninety nine"). So look on my fellow sole lovers. Just don't drool on your keyboard. Cuz that's just nasty....

These dolls come in grey suede and black leather, with gunmetal studs. They have a 4.5 stacked heel with a 5" covered platform in the front. Can you get any sexier??!! I personally like the grey color better because you can see the studs more, but if you like the biker girl, bad a$$ look then black is for you. Honestly I would rock both..who am I fooling...

OMG!! I'm drunk just looking!

Do I even need to add text to this?!
It's a GLASS slipper with a bottle of champagne made by Christian Louboutin. LOOK AT THE HEEL!! Its like the stem of champagne flute. I'm in love! I'm hearing you can drink out of the shoe. I think I would! I would probably try to put the shoe on too!
I'm sure this will cost an arm and a it will cost the entire body.

Here's the skinny, Christian Louboutin partnered with Piper-Heidsieck champagne (side note - this is the best champagne EVER!). Its a limited edition box set called "Le Rituel" containing a bottle of champagne and the slipper. "Le Rituel" is based on the 1880's ritual of drinking from a woman's shoe. It was supposed to be a decadence or something.. I don't know what would make that a decadence especially since they didn't really bathe back then. But whatever floats ya boat!

The slipper is simply beautiful and handcrafted with elegance!

AYE I can't deal!!

The Return of the "REVA"

Today was a sad day, folks.. I had to do something I really didn't want to do..I had to return the REVA =( I know, I hear your gasps. I am still in shock. The REVA was just a half size too small. And all my attempts to stretch them out failed. I wore them around the house with tube socks almost everyday. I even stuffed them with shoe horns. Nothing was making those girls become an 8 1/2. I knew if I wore them outside, it would have been the most painful experience for my feet. So, I bit the bullet (really hard might I add) and went back to Century 21, receipt in hand (3 days before the return cut off period), slide my box across the counter and heard my heart break. Thank goodness for large sunglasses..they hid my eyes filling with tears when the cashier asked in total confusion "Are you sure you want to return these?" "Yes", I whimpered.

I swear, 27 days ago, when I first stumbled into Century 21 and saw my beloved there, the size 8 fit. Maybe it was just my mind willing it to fit because I wanted them soo bad. Oh well.. I guess I have to get over my loss. I'm now in stage 4th of the grieving process..Depression (insert SIGH here) Tomorrow, I will graduate to Acceptance..

Here is how my stages went, all while still in Century 21:

Denial - Walking pass the store twice
Anger - Frustrated that there wasn't another pair of flats or anything by Tory Burch in my size
Bargaining - Looking for another shoe so I can do an exchange instead of a full return (this way I can get another pair of SHOES..the rebound shoe)
Depression - Remembering my REVA nights with our favorite tube socks... (I am now listening to sappy love songs)
Acceptance - Not there yet.. (I CANT BELIEVE REVA'S GONE!!!!)

Tell me friends, does returning a shoe make you feel like you went thru a breakup.. Am I grieving too much.. Someone slap me right now!! Go ahead I can take it!!

It's soo CHOO!!

So, where will you be Nov 14th 2009?? On that day I should be trying to find a gift for my mother, who's birthday is Nov 15, but I know I will be at H&M trying to score a pair of Jimmy Choo for H&M shoes!! I know I'm really late with this news but OMG!! Jimmy is going to be at a bargain?! I don't know what I'd do to score the shoes you see above, I am anticipating a knock down drag out fight.So I will have to bring my boxing gloves and a huge jar of Vaseline!!!

I honestly love that high-end designers are making things for the little people.

Do you think Christian Louboutin will make a discounted shoe..OH how I pray he does. That will set my heart a float.

Tell me, shoe lovers, do you shop the discounts brands of your favorite designers? (clothes or shoes) Do you feel like YES! SCORE one for the average person that can not afford full retail or NO!! BORE me with these cheap materials!! I'd rather blow my entire paycheck for the real deal??? Let me know??

Here is what one of the ads look like....FAB =)

Hey gang, It's Sole-sister and I'm back!! Where have I been, you ask? Here, there, everywhere!! Everywhere but not updating this blog! Well, the time has come to stop procrastinating, put fingers to keyboard and get moving. One thing I have not procrastinated on was SHOES of course. I've purchased some pretty smokin' shoes of the past couple of month and I will be sharing them with you over the next several post.

The first thing I want to share with you guys is the best shopping experience you could find!! Ok so maybe the pushing, shoving and crowds don't really scream "best shopping experience" but when you go to Century 21 you are bound to find something there for less.

Case in point

This is the Morgan Wedge by Tory Burch.. HELLO!!! This baby was only $149.. that is HALF of the $300 which is the original price.

Then there was:

The Sophie Wedge.. This one was $140. It's brown crocodile. Simply Beautiful

And I've saved the best for last:

YES!!! The REVA flat in houndstooth. This lady in the store searched all the boxes looking for another pair and literally (no lie) started crying!! I kid you NOT!! She did! I scored the last pair of 8's!!!! These were $108

So my fellow shoe lovers if you have not been to Century 21, please make a trip to your local store. it will change your life!!!!

If you have been please share your thoughts!! I would love to know your experience and what you found!!

Until the next post,

Solesister =)
