Comes in wide range of colors and material(Suade/Leather)

C/O DSW $34.94(on sale !)
Madeline Girl Bow Pumps
comes in 2 colors(Camel/Black)

 For starters, let me tell you a bit of trivia about me. I am a shoe fanatic and a shoe addict at the same time. Which is a deadly combo is you ask my husband. If there is such thing as a shoe addict rehab or a 12 step program to overcome the shoe addiction, I am most certainly sure that my dear husband would have driven me to the nearest facility. He even jokes that him and the Fedex and UPS guys are on first name basis by now and everytime there is a delivery in a box, he always assumes it's another pair of shoes. He loves me anyhow so he just accepts me for who I am, ha ha. Anyway, here's another fabulous petite finds. I spotted this patent leather Miu Miu bow detail mary janes platform and completely fell in love with her. I would like to take her home with me but the price range is not within my budget for right now. Maybe in the future I will have the guts to pull the trigger with my eyes close and just give in. Like the saying goes, no guts no glory ! The good news for you is that I found a look alike in a much cheaper price range alternative. If you are a girl on the budget, the Madeline is definitely a keeper. It is definitely easy on the wallet but not lacking on style. She is as pretty as the coveted Miu Miu's. But for now all I can do is wish and hope and wish and hope for Miu Miu's...On last note, the comments on this post are all based on my personal opinions. I am not paid in anyhow to do a review and I am just sharing which I think was a good finds. So are you a Team Splurge or a Team Steal? I would love to know your thoughts and even any suggestions, tips and good deals. Thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your time !

However, I am a day late and a dollar short, the popular blouse was sold out now ! It went on sale from $209 to $83.60. Just my luck.  Last night I found the duplicate from F21.

Flower Power

 Hello everyone. I am going to enjoy my long weekend with family. Our first time to observed   Memorial day in our new house. My in laws are coming over and I am just as happy to see them.       Floral prints are trending right now. I gotta try and see if fabulous petite can rock it.  My fashion style is evolving and this is my take on these seasons trend. The print is bold and the yellow is loud so I choose a black jacket to tone down the rest of the look.

Camel Suade

I  been coveting this Brian Atwood maniac pumps for sometime now. But his price are way over my pocketbook budget. Unless Santa will bring my early Christmas present this year {wink, wink}. I was perusing this website{thanks Aisha, for telling about this website} and found the exact look alike of the BA maniac pumps. It is the Kelsey Dagger Linzy. It was on sale from $120 to $48. That is a steal ! Enough reason for me to stop contemplating. I did not order right away, kept it on my cart for few more days because I just ordered a pair from Nordstrom 2 weeks ago and just keep telling myself like I always do, if for a few days the shoes is still there, my size is still available then she is mine ! Couple of days have passed by and after contemplating too much, i decided to pull the trigger. I checked back with 6pm and her sale price went up from from $48 to $60. I called their customer service and told them why went up on price. He put me on hold and told me good news, I can honor the previous sale price said the representative and gave me the $48 instead. The deal just gotten sweeter ! I ordered Linzy and was so anxious to receive my new baby girl.

Yesterday I got her and was so excited to open the box. The feeling was like christmas day ! Too much anticipation just to get disappointed... I tried her on. Walk around the house and from such a shoe fanatic myself, I can tell that she and I are not going to get along. The fit and the construction was just not right. It feels uncomfortable right away. The camel color look faded. I know that if I just suck it up and keep the shoes because of the price I will not get more used of her. She will sit in my closet and never be worn but once. What a waste !

My verdict? She is going back ! She had me at hello but that is not enough to keep her... It could have been another success buy for me if I don't have to return her. Also it doesn't hurt sometimes to ask for discount, price adjustments etc etc because you woudn't know , you can score a great deal just by asking. Any penny save =  more money to spend on something else. Now on to my next adventure..... Get the real one? What do you think? Are you willing to spend much on designer shoes? Share your thoughts with me. Thank you so much for dropping by and as always I appreciate your time. Ciao !

Hot Pink

Hi everyone. I hope you are having a good day ! Did it ever happen to you that you are staring at clothes in your closet and mumbling... Your mind just says, I don't have anything to wear and decide fast because you don't want to be late for work and you don't want your son to miss his school bus. I am usually good at this task. I would choose clothes I want to wear the night before so i will not have to deal with this dilemna in the morning. But for some reason, I don't feel like doing it and convice myself I can do it quick in the morning.
So i stare, stare and stare.Pull some clothes, try it on and it just don't look right or good. Today is just those days that putting an outfit is just frustrating.

So this is what I came up with ! I am lucky that our dress code at work is business casual. But I am not quite satisfied. I want some pop of color. Why not wear some hot pink suade shoes ! My barbie shoes.  nDon't be fooled by the heel height, she is very comfortable. The outfit of the day works for me and I made it on time for work, made my son's breakfast, comb his hair, tie his shoes, told him to brush his teeth and was able to check on "Spartacus"(my son's pet rabbit) ! Whew that was a mouthful !!

However, we miss the school bus.

Thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your time....... Ciao !

Road less travelled

What a gorgeous Sunday ! Husband, me and son headed to another county not too far from Atlanta to go look for some bunnies. I don't know what had gotten into my 6 year old son and all of a sudden he's been asking us for a bunny. As we are are heading home we passed by these tracks and told my husband that I want my pictures taken in the tracks. It seems like a good spot and a perfect day for some blog photos. He looked around the tracks, it slopes on both sides and with lots of rocks and asked? Can you walked with those shoes? My quick reply,  I walked with my heels on before I am even born...

What about you? How was you weekend? As always, I appreciate you for stopping by.... Please share   your favorit spots for taking pictures or just share anything you would like.

An Introduction

Hello World !

For this very first entry I would like to welcome everyone to the diary of my personal style. This is my place to share my thoughts with fashion and style with like minded people. Also if my blog name is not a give away, I am very petite. Therefore finding clothes that actually fits perfectly with less or no alteration is always been a challenged for me. Fashion is always evolving and so as my style(i think so). This is my journey about exploring fashion the way I see it.

Who says you cannot wear two prints at the same time? Stripes and polka dots will worked if you tone it down with a simple pair of blue jeans and a nude/taupe color shoes. For these outfit, I want the prints to stand out and the rest of my outfit as the supporting role. What do you think? If you have any tips, suggestions or anything you want to share, please by all means .

Thank you so much for stopping by and as always I appreciate your time.
