Shoedazzle Abrielle

Well I guess this is the season for me to be 6 feet tall everyday because I’m obsessed! Abrielle by Madison is another showstopping shoe that I picked up from Shoedazzle.com!

Shoedazzle Kamela

Oh, Kamela! I couldn’t resist buying you when I saw the bold graphic prints and fun colors in the monthly Shoedazzle video but damn…this is one high platform and heel!

Everyone knows that I’m a girl that is a big fan of high heels and can handle some very tall heights. However, when I put these on, I definitely had to take two steps back and brace myself to walk in them.

Kamela does run true to size, however, since it is a peep toe and a skyscraper heel, I would recommend going up a half of a size if you can. After a while of walking around in them, my big toe started to hurt from all of the pressure of it being pushed to the front and out of the peep toe.

Shoe details:
- Heel Height: 6 inches
- Platform height: 2 inches
- Fits true to size (but I recommend a half size up if you can)
- Price $39.95 VIP / $49.95 Regular

ASICS GEL-Excite 2 Running Shoe

 

So I’m working on my fitness…work, work, work work working on my fitness!

That was my attempt at raping like Iggy during my workouts! Over the past few months, I’ve noticed a certain “swelling” in certain areas of my body. I’ve been meaning to start working out months ago and by that I mean buying a personal trampoline about a month and half ago that I still haven’t built and purchasing these sneakers 2 months ago that I just got around to putting on and using yesterday. I know, I know but for the past 10 days, I’ve been doing amazing work…eating healthy, working out, cutting bread and french fries out of my life…oh the McDonalds french fries were everything to me! :’(

So I wanted to share my first pair of sneakers in…actually I’m not sure how many years it’s been but it’s safe to say it’s been a very long time since I purchased a pair!

I knew I wanted to get a comfortable pair of sneakers with gel inserts since I would be running a lot and jumping. My main focus was the cushioning but I knew I had to find something that was also durable and could hold up to the many miles I would be putting on these babies…hey I set high goals for myself.

So I stopped by my local DSW and tried on about seven pairs of sneakers from Nike, Adidas, Reebok, Saucony, and Asics. Basically, almost every sneaker in the store. About 30 minutes later, I decided on these Asics Gel Excite 2 Running Shoes.

IMG_2385 IMG_2403 IMG_2414 IMG_2498

Shoe details:
- Breathable mesh upper
- Padded collar and tongue
- Fits true to size
- Cushioned footbed
- Rearfoot Gel technology for shock absorption
- Weight: 9 oz
- Price $64.95

First, I couldn’t believe sneakers cost me almost $70 and some of the other pairs that I tried on were ranging between $75-$129! Since I’m on the beginning of my fitness journey, I decided to choose these Asics because they are very comfortable, great for the price and I can pair them with a lot of outfits. Yes, my fashion sense is sticking around even while I’m -in my Iggy voice- work work work work working on my fitness. ;)

Although these do run true to size, I recommend going up half a size just for a little wiggle room with your socks.

Do you have any fitness goals this summer? Let’s be work out buddies!

Let the posts resume!

-Door knocking- Oh hello opportunity! It’s nice to meet you.

Ok I know that was kind of cheesy but that one line pretty much explains the reason for my absence. I told you all that I had to take a little break from my writing duties, reviews and posting pictures because I had to adjust to a few new things happening in my life.

Of course one can never fully adjust and I’m realizing there just isn’t enough time in the day to do everything that I need to do along with the things that I want to do (and sleep right?) but I’m figuring it all out day by day.

With all of that said, I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things, so it’s time to catch you all up on the pretty little things happening in Candy Coated Closets! Yes, my shoe pictures may have dwindled but that didn’t mean I would stop shopping! I mean, honestly!

Make sure you’re following me on Instagram @Candycoatedclosets Since I’m on the go so much now, I’ll be able to engage and interact with a lot more of you on there!

Sakiko by GX by Gwen Stefani

Before I jump into this post, I have to apologize for my sudden disappearance. I just started a new job in NYC and I’ve had to jump in, yes heels first, practically 24/7. So while I’m going through this adjustment, the photos and content on here will be a little delayed. Never fear though, the shoe love will pick up again soon!

Now onto the prettier things! Earlier this year, Gwen Stefani partnered with ShoeDazzle.com to create an affordable line of shoes called GX. The pair I want to show you today is the Sakiko’s by GX by Gwen Stefani.IMG_12441 IMG_11333 IMG_1601 IMG_1564

Shoe details:
- 5 inch heel
- 1 inch platform
- Fits true to size
- Zipper back closure
- $59.95 VIP / $95.95 Reg

I love the whip stitch detail and design that lays on the front of the shoe/foot but the best part is the chunky heel! I feel like I’m almost cheating on my other high heels by wearing something so thick and comfortable! But hey, what’s a wardrobe without a little bit of variety!

Head to Shoedazzle.com to purchase!

Indulge: A Stylish Treat For Mothers

It’s times like these that I really love what I do. Thursday, May 8th, Roosevelt Field Mall hosted an event for the chicest Moms to come and celebrate Mother’s Day in style. From 5pm to 8pm, you could come and celebrate that special woman in your life and treat them to a fabulous night of fashion, shopping, beauty and fun. There were tons of in-mall events and even in-store events that offered hand massages, demonstrations, facials, giveaways and styling tips so mom could have a few special hours of pampering away from the children.

If you were one of the lucky ones to make it there early, there was an opportunity to sign up for a swag bag. Of course you know I snagged one so you could check out its contents. Overall, I wasn’t too thrilled with this swag bag. It was filled with coupons, flyers and other random things that seemed to be laying around the participating stores.
