Sam Edelman The Ria Shoe in Leopard

Hey Guys!
Hope you all had a Merry Christmas yesterday! I have been MIA for the past week because of a killer cold. Charles ended up picking it up as well so we have been taking it easy. I am also on holidays until January 2nd which works out well for recovery, but is disappointing because I haven't had the energy to do the things I wanted to (i.e., blogging). If you follow me on twitter, you know I've been sick but I just wanted to update everyone here.

I thought I would share with you a recent purchase from I've been shopping off this website quite often as they have AMAZING sales on all the time on great designers. I ordered my Jeffrey Campbell Lita's from this store, as well as my Sam Edelman Rozas. I was looking at getting a pair of Leopard print heels for a while, and really liked the House of Harlow Leopard Booties I saw on Nicole Richie, but couldn't justify spending the $300+ price tag. What I was looking for in a leopard heel was the fur-like texture and large spots. I've seen many shoes with large spots and a patent texture or small spots and a fur texture and I didn't want to settle for either option.

I saw the Ria shoes at the time when I purchased my Rozas, but they were $160 and I still didn't want to pay that much. Karmaloop ended up putting these on sale for 33% off so they ended up being $106.95. I also had a 20% off coupon code and ended up getting these shoes for $85 plus free shipping! I thought this was an amazing deal since I was already looking at buying the exact pair. Luckily they had a size 8 in stock. They still have a size 10 if anyone is interested, click here.

 These do shed a bit, but like all "pony"/calf hair bags/shoes, you just have to be careful when wearing them

I think a size 7.5 would have been a better fit as they are a little loose. I hate that with shoes I can be anywhere from a size 7-8. I'd say I'm a true size 7.5, but typically order the 8 because I have wide feet and find shoes more comfortable a little bigger.

Shoes are one of those things I feel you can always find sales on and should never have to pay full price. I found a pair of Coach Rainboots at my local winners for only $45, regular $110+. I will be sharing that purchase next so stay tuned. 

Since it is boxing day, I thought it would only be fitting to share a great deal. Karmaloop is having an up to 85% off sale on designer goods. Be sure to check it out!
