ASOS Tall now carries Shoeissima brand shoes

Well I’ll be a monkey’s uncle! I just found out that’s tall section now carries shoes up to a size 13!


The current selection is slim and not too innovative, but it’s a step in the right direction.

(There are more styles that this, its just what I could screen shot)

I never thought to look since I rarely order from that site. But they’re a totally acceptable site to buy from. I’ve liked all of the clothing I’ve purchased so far. I LOVE that they have the “runway” view so you can see a short film of the clothing on a model in action.


It looks like the entire ASOS collection is part of a larger brand called Shoesissima, which are based out of the UK. You’ll probably get a better shipping deal if you buy from ASOS but there is a larger selection at Shoesissima.


This is the first I’ve ever heard of that brand, so I can’t speak to the quality or fit. I just wanted to get the word out there.
Leave me a comment if you’ve dealt with them in the past :D

Jeffrey Campbell Picado Sandal at Nordstrom

Doin’ my daily stroll through Nordstrom’s shoe section and I just spied a cute new sandal by Jeffrey Campbell.

I’m really suprised that Barefoot Tess didn’t get these (actually… not that suprised…)


The Picado has super cute geometric cut outs all over it. I feel like geometric patterns are becoming the new lace? eh?


Anywho, there are 3 colors to choose from: Nude, Pink / Rose, and Grey. And there are 11s and 12s still in stock.

Please note:  I haven’t tried these on, so I know nothing of the fit. But Nordstrom always offers free shipping and free returns, so your always safe to order from them incase something doesn’t work out.


These are a little too girly for me, so I won’t be getting them. But I had to share due to the cuteness.
Wouldn’t these also be great in a red?!

Buffalo – 1310-2 Boot

Update 4/13/14 – Whoa guys… my review of the Buffalo 1310-2 boots has become one of my most popular posts of all time lately and I figured I should update it because it looks like Solestruck doesn’t sell this style anymore :( *sad trombone*.

However, if you’re looking for a similar style, there is this version:

Heck, I bet they’re the same shoe, they just gave it a different name.

AND I can also update my review of the shoe since I’ve worn them a handful of times since purchasing them. The changes will show below…


I think I was born in the wrong decade. I should have been born in 1975 (not 1985) so that I could be in my 20s during the 90s and I could have fully experienced the magic of the Club Kid and underground rave days. Regardless, I still have a great appreciation for the music and the fashion of that time and that’s why I had to buy the new Buffalo platform sneakers (or are they boots?) that just hit Solestruck’s site yesterday afternoon.

You know I had to get the all black version ;)


Solestruck is carrying 2 styles for men and 2 styles for women. AMAZINGLY the women’s sizes go all the way up to a 12!
BUT the all black version was only available for men so I bought the size 11s. These should arrive today and I’ll post my findings when I get them on my feet :D

I’m so glad that Buffalo stuck around all these years. Gone are the days of the crazy cyber SWEAR Alternative platforms and Transmuters. If you’re lucky to snatch a pair of those babies up, you hold on to them for dear life! I was lucky to find the pair of SWEARs from a store in LA , but I don’t wear them nearly as much as I should :(


So, for now, strap on your Buffalos and let’s all reenact Robyn’s video “Call Your Girlfriend”. (I just need to find a mohair sweater ;) )


Update 6/5/12 4/13/14-

  • They’ve arrived and they fit! I ordered the Men’s all black style 1310-2 in a size 11. The tongue of the shoe reads 44. They’re not too big or too small.
  • They’re totally easy to walk in. Much easier than the MoonSpoonSaloon x Buffalo collabs.
  • They have crazy cushy ankle support.
  • I don’t like how they’re laced. I had to undo them and relace them so I could tighten them up properly.

I’ve worn these to a handful of concerts and there is one problem with them. They make my feet cramp up! I think it’s because they’re such a flat soled shoe and there is no way for my foot to flex while wearing them that it makes the muscles ache. I still like wearing them because they help me see over the crowd, lol.

My one dilemma? I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO WEAR THEM WITH!! Because of the size, they do look pretty BIG/BEEFY, I feel this makes them look a tad manley. I have a feeling my Vince skinny jeans will be just fine and my BlackMilk leggings will work too. I just want my look to appear effortless. Since I’ll most likely be 6’4″ with them on, I’ll stick out like a sore thumb and I atleast want to look like I know what I’m doing :P
I’ve been cruising through pics on google images to see what other people wear these with and it’s given me some ideas.


Nine West – Fastlife

I think I also need to join the Silver Shoe Addicts Anonymous club because I fell off the wagon again….


I was cruising through eBay (as usual) and came across the Nine West Fastlife in the shiniest silver I ever saw :O  I did a few google image searches to see what they would look like on the foot and realized they were so disco-tastic that I needed them too.

nine west fastlife

I snagged these for about $35.

They fit true to size with a smidge of wiggle room. They don’t feel loose at all. They have that awesome platform to heel ratio where you’re up high, but your feet don’t hurt because they’re not crazy steep.

Picture 183 Picture 185

I wore these out dancing last night and loved them. The soles have some grip, so you feel extra stable and the ankle strap and toe band didn’t scrape or pinch me.

However, with this material, you have to be careful of scraping or denting them. Looking at them closely I can see some knicks in the heel.


GOOD NEWS! You can actually buy these in an 11 and a 12! Possibly not in silver, but this style comes in SOOOO many color combos, there’s bound to be one for you.

Nine West has these in stock in 3 colors for $30.

Amazon has a pair of 11s in silver for $43.

Try googling around for them. There are still a few pairs out there!
