Hi Outblush! I'm going on a long cruise in January which means I'll need lots and lots of pretty dinner outfits- such a good excuse to buy new things! Lately I've fallen in love with colorblock heels. I'm looking specifically to wear them with an LBD on my cruise but I also want them to be versatile for future use. My current frontrunner is ALDO's Kovac, but I'm looking for more options! I love jewel tones, but I'm not a huge fan of green or brown. I'm not afraid to go with a high heel! I love the idea of Jessica Simpson color block shoes, but I definitely want something with a closed toe and more of a classic style platform pump like the Kovac. I really don't like the cap over the toe like this and I also don't like the chunkiness of that heel. LOVE this style, but not so much the hot pink. I'm a size 10 but if the shoes run smaller (like ALDO) I'm an 11. I'd prefer to spend less than 60, but I've been known to splurge if I'm completely in love with a shoe. Thanks for your help!! Stephanie
Dearest Stephanie! Carlota here and I have a sick...sick...sick obsession with shoes so I'm super excited to help you out! You definitely have a grasp on almost all of the color block pumps available, but I did find a few. Hope you like. XOXO

Carlota here: I'm a true girly-girl. I love strapless dresses, skinny jeans, basic ribbed tanks, lace intimates, patent peep-toes, jeweled sandals, buttery-soft leather satchels, sparkly pendants....you get the point! I also love to save cash when I can, so consider me your personal concierge when you're looking for luxury-for-less. I also have a crazy husband, two little munchkins (Carlo and Milly) and a furry yellow Lab. All of them are sweet and lovable, but they certainly do occupy a good portion of my day. However I do L-O-V-E shopping with a passion and finding amazing deals for myself as well as others.
