Letoile Peep Toe Sling in “Tan” from Payless -Review & Pics

The Nude Heel – a wardrobe staple:

The Letoile Peep Toe Sling from Payless are a classic patent leather peeptoe heel. They are a great basic heel to add to your collection. And as far as heels go they’re relatively comfortable.  They have enough structure that they aren’t wobbly but they it’s nice that they aren’t platform stripper heels so appropriate for more occasions. The color shown is called “tan” and is a very neutral nude shade.

Nude shoes elongate and flatter almost any woman.

Now don’t shoot me … but the dress and shoe combo shown below is what I expect to wear this summer as a bridesmaid to a wedding. Yes the dress is black. Yes this wedding is near New York. Yes one of the other bridesmaids said she was wearing black. YES! I’m bringing another dress with me just in case. In the “South” (yes, Kentucky sometimes counts) we don’t wear black to weddings. It’s a “black is for funerals” sort of thing so I will NOT risk being the only bridesmaid wearing black. There WILL be a backup dress in case they change their minds.

This is where I also have to admit that since I bought them for an event I have only worn them around the house. They won’t get their first full (or half) day wearing until June. The silver pumps in the last post are actually being bought for the same event. Both shoes I expect to get a lot of use out of afterwards though. At least as far as heels go since I really spend most of my time wearing flats. 🙂

Originally $29.99 they’re on sale for $24.99. If you have one of the 20% Payless coupons (either in an email or from one of their mailers) that brings them to about $20 which is what I picked these up for.

Odd N Ends

Neon and chevron nail polish

First attempt at chevron and neon nails.

"And go and get yourself some cheap sunglasses"

“and go and get yourself some cheap sunglasses…” I scratch my old sunglasses and needed some new. The kiosk mirrors were horrible so I was taking photos with my phone to get a better look.

Blue dress Kohl's

Yeah the dresses are not working … was trying to find a dress for a wedding. I ended up wearing a skirt instead (it was a bajillion degrees, people were in all manner of dress.) It didn’t help that when I was trying on dresses I had been bitten by something (I think spider) and had a reaction that included mild systemic inflammation. I felt a good 10lbs heavier and poofy. :/

Black dress Talbot's Outlet

If this hadn’t been black I would have bought it. Perfect for hot weather, cute (cuter than in the photo) but not a wedding guest dress. Not in KY, not in the daytime.I feel like a sausage - talbot's outlet

Talbot’s outlet. Felt like a sausage in this.

burgundy shirt talbot's

Cute but too “fall”… also not what I was shopping for.

Moved on to shoes.

Brown wedges

 Cute but not quite. (Marshall’s)

Tan wedges

Better but wanted a little darker… these are cute however and I might go back.

Nautical wedges TJ Maxx

LOVED these navy nautical wedges but they got veto’d for a wedding. A little over the top. I was already wearing neon nail polish. TJ Maxx so close.

Then JACKPOT – Payless Shoes (again somehow)
