The thing about these Cynthia Vincent shoes is that I ABSOLUTELY could not usually afford them. No way, no how. Not even the shoes that are on sale on her website. I won’t even pay that much for jeans, let alone shoes I won’t wear every single day. BUT, these shoes are incredibly well made and super d duper comfortable. And you know what? I found them at Common Threads in Boulder, which is a consignment store, for $47. I’m not totally sure what these shoes cost to their original owner, but I’m guessing about $250 or more. Gosh damn I love me a good deal.


I’ve figured out that the only way I’m comfortable in high heels is if they have an ankle strap. I don’t know if it’s because I have messed up feet and ankles or because I have the sweatiest feet in the world, but ankle straps make me feel waaaay more comfortable and less frightened of walking in heels.


Let’s be real, you pretty much have to plan your outfit around these shoes. I wore my black shorts from Pink’s Boutique, a white tank I also found at Common Threads, a blue blazer from Francesca’s and some silver and black accessories. But the other awesome pop of color I added was my favorite bag by Kelly Moore. I seriously use this bag for everything. It’s my gym bag, my travel bag, and my snacks bag. You know, because everybody needs a snack bag.
