Bre's Week In Links/Instagrams 9-28-12

INCEPTION. New layout, finally <3

 This week I have just one link for you guys, please go take a look at my friend Abra's Facebook page. She was recently diagnosed with stage III brain cancer and needs a ton of help with her treatment costs, not to mention the airline lost her medication on her way back home from treatment in Texas this week (seriously, WHAT?!). You can find a link to the donation site there, and anything will help. This girl has been making me crack the eff up through the internets for about 12 years now (since the LIVEJOURNAL days! CENTURIES ago!) and deserves the means to fight this as hard as she possibly can <3 Thanks for taking a look, guys. It really means a lot :D

Love me some crazy socks :D
Terry and I had another much-needed Tony V's night
Got my Vintage "Goddess-02"s from AMI Clubwear! WOOOOO! So stoked on these!
Hope you guys have a great weekend! See you guys next week!

Knockoff Ninja #18 - Jeffrey Campbell "Lita" part 2!

EDIT 11/7/12: Please see my DWD Shoes review/warning here.

EDIT 10/25/12: I am no longer receiving responses when I inquire about my exchange. Please do not order from DWD Shoes/Discount Womens Dress Shoes!

EDIT 10/20/12: For the moment, I removed links to DWD Shoes and cannot in good conscience recommend that anyone order from the site, at least during this move they're going through. I initially had a good experience, but it wasn't until I had to return a pair of boots for a size up that I started to run into a lot of trouble. A friend has also been having the same issue, but with a MUCH larger order, so please either order with caution (you've been warned!) or wait until this move is all sorted out. Thanks, and I'm so sorry if you ordered and are having trouble after I sent you here :c

Jeffrey Campbell "Lita" in Red Distressed Leather SOLD OUT (retailed at $159.95)

Vintage "Francheska" in Red PU available at Sheikh Shoes ($26.99)

I recently happened upon the motherload of Francheskas in basically all variations imaginable at DWD Shoes (link removed due to shady business practices!) while Googling cheap shoes. I may have cried a little bit. They've got hot pink and leopard spiked, which I had never seen, and they've got all the gorgeous shades of aqua and deep turquoise that sold out in my size a long time ago on other bargain sites. I wound up ordering the Black Leatherette Spikes, because they'll go with everything. Unfortunately, I ordered in my usual size and they ended up being too small! I had to send them back, so I keep praying that the 8.5s don't sell out before I get my refund! In summation, when ordering any variation of the Francheska (or almost any shoe from the brands "Vintage" and "I ♥ U"), I'd recommend that you order a half size up :D

These prices are already so insanely low compared to the usual $50+ I'm used to seeing for these boots, but you can take an additional 10% off at DWD Shoes with the code CSGIFT!

Check out my Jeffrey Campbell "Lita" post part one!

Happy shopping! And leave me an 8.5 in the red spiked ones, will ya?!

Shoes-day Tuesday #34 - Heelless on a Budget

1. Vintage "Goddess-01" in Black Suede $56.00
2. Privileged "Gilmore" in Fuchsia Suede $79.99
3. Dollhouse "Explicit" in Yellow Suede $39.20
4. Privileged "Serra" in Neon Yellow $88.00
5. Dollhouse "Confession" wedge in Blue Leopard $31.40
6. Vintage "Goddess-02" in Black Leatherette $35.99

I've got #6 in black coming to me this week from AMI Clubwear, and I'm WAY too stoked about it. Over the last few months, a metric crapton of heelless maryjanes similar to Jeffrey Campbell's "Night Walk" have been paraded in front of me, but I've been holding out for one that is nearly identical in silhouette, has a completely covered platform in a leatherette, and I'm pretty sure I found it in this shoe! I almost ended up getting #3 in black, but I'm soooo glad I waited until #6 came around! Will definitely report back on how it works out!

PSST! Code LOVE30 gets you 30% off at AMI Clubwear!

Which one is your favorite?

Knockoff Ninja #17 - Jeffrey Campbell "Shadow Stud (Spike)"

Jeffrey Cambell "Shadow Stud (Spike)" in Black available at Solestruck ($234.95), ShopAKIRA ($254.90), Karmaloop ($255.00), Nasty Gal ($255.00), Jildor Shoes ($265.00)

Vintage "Goddess-05" in Black available at DFashionista Boutique ($60.00), UrbanOG ($66.90), Make Me Chic ($72.60)

I. WANT. THESE. SO BAD. But before I start writing love songs for these, let's discuss the important part- the differences. First is the obvious difference in material. The Shadow Studs are made of leather, whereas the Goddess-05 are a faux suede. The spikes in the front of the shoe have been removed and replaced with rivets (not too much ass-kicking can be accomplished in these), and the shape of the wedge is just slightly off. Not enough to deter ol' Bre. GIVE!

Happy shoe shopping :D
