When it rains, it pours!

Yes, you guessed it! Another shoe post...

Remember those lovely J.Crew Camden brogues in blush pink that we will NEVER EVER have not only because it's a whopping $250 but because the blush pink color is also sold out? Well, look what I found at the Payless website...

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised to see an affordable Alice + Olivia alternative! I'm a HUGE J.Crew fan but since I don't have tons of cash just lying around (How I wish I did though!), I have to be smart! And Payless was definitely the way to go!

I ordered the shoes a couple of weeks ago and of course, I had the shoes delivered to the nearest location so that I can save on shipping (Remember, $6 saved on shipping is $6 that will be going to a new pair of shoes!) And today was the day. I went to the mall to pick up the pink loveliness that was waiting to go home.

Going to the mall wearing this:

Going back home wearing this:

The Alice + Olivia Payless version is very comfortable. They are also a nice pale shade of pink. The bottoms are quite different though, it being rubber but it's no biggie. I have to get used to the lace-less thing though. It kind of looks semi-naked, you know? I mean, the whole lace-up thing is what got me hooked on jazz shoes in the first place so not having laces kind of confuses my brain. I might get laces for these pink lovelies but for $24 (I used a coupon), I'm definitely not complaining!

They look so cute! ^__^ Good find. :)
I agree, they do look naked without laces, but the pattern at the toe's adorable.

Thanks for comments and for following, btw, will be following this cool blog too. (See what I did there? *I'm so lame*)

You hit the freaking jackpot on those shoes!! I was just gazing at the J.Crew one's this afternoon and it's a no can-do in walletville. You've put a spring back into my step! yahoo!

I think they look great on you sans laces!!

Those shoes are so drool-worthy! :)

I acctually like them lace-less. I think with the less typical color it doesn't look like you took the laces out - like they are suposed to look like that. Triple love the color!

They are so sweet! Although I agree about them looking naked: I'd thread some chiffon ribbon through them.
