I’m really lucky that I not only have the best in-laws, but that they also live near what I think this the most amazing T.J. Maxx around.  And trust me, I’ve scoured the racks of a lot of T.J. Maxx stores.  The one near their home in New Jersey is worth a pilgrimage with it’s wall (like really, an entire wall) of designer shoes, a case of purses (even still-in-stores Fendi totes!), and a huge Runway section.  I don’t know why I’m telling you all this since I don’t really want to share my mecca of designer deals.  I guess I’m feeling extra generous lately.  But for those of you who can’t dedicate a weekend or a small vacation to visiting my store, you’ll be absolutely thrilled to find out that T.J. Maxx is back in the online retail game!  I don’t know if this is the best or worst thing to happen to me (I’m thinking best for me, worst for my monthly shopping budget).  Here are a few of my favorites available now.

Inspiration/Realization: Statement Shoes by Prada

Red-shoe-diaries-final

I love that a shoe can complete an outfit and make you feel totally put together.  I can wear one of my go-to outfits: skinny jeans + white shirt + black blazer and add a great pair of shoes to make me look like I put a lot of effort into the outfit.  I’m loving the pop of color that red pumps can give.  They are so on-trend yet timeless.  I’ve been lusting after these Prada pumps for a while so I took to scouring stores to find optimal replacements.  Here are a few.  I think I might purchase the Zara ones if they aren’t too uncomfortable.  If not, look for me in a lovely pair of red pointy toe flats coming up soon.
