Early Fall Steals, Deals, and Buys

I am not sure if you all recall a Tweet alert I put out for a massive shoe discount and sale on on Nine West shoes and handbags...but if you did miss me you missed a treat. Nine West was probably my most "trusted" brand of shoe and as far as style, versatility, and price is concerned, you just can't beat Nine West.  I scooped up the following (some of which should look VERY familiar to you as you've probably seen them featured on the blog) during the massive 85% off sale. I also took a peek over at and saw some  other pairs of shoes I wanted..ALSO on sale! SCORE!

What was SUPER cool was how Zappos was SO accommodating. I hadn't received my shipment (it was off by a week) and so I a bit concerned. So I emailed them. They CALLED me and said "Ms.Mocha...we see you haven't gotten your shipment...we apologize. There was an error the weekend you ordered so it has delayed the shipments for that week. It should be there no later than Wed. Here is a $25 [I applied it to my order] and we are upgrading you to Zappos VIP! We appreciate your business". WHAT! I'm a Zappos VIP? Get outta here......LOL (That's kinda sad my addiction has gone there.)

So here are all the shoes I got....some you should recognize from my "Boot" blog.
Nine West "Flashbulb" 
Nine West "Gracious" in both Tan Leather and Red Suede
Nine West "Fessup" (I declared this THE BOOTIE of the season..get on it, ya'll! LOL)

And for work...this sensible wedge
Nine West "Tomago" Crock Patent Leather 

And just the other day, I was out with my friend and we were inspired by Yaki over at to take a trip to TJ MAXX. I scored 2 cute pairs.....

Chinese Laundry "hide and Seek" Mesh Bootie Pump (Originally $89..Got em for $39)

Here it is in person
It runs a little big...but it is still nice. My friend Ree got the same ones too!

Adrienne Vittadini Leopard  "Tyler" Moccasins (Originally $90, em for $39)
Here it is in person...
This just may be my favorite, most comfy flat of all time now!

For me, the outfit ALWAYS begins with the shoes. I always build my wardrobe around shoes, not the other way around (weird I know). Here are some inspired styles via my  style board profile that I plan on putting together this fall with my September purchases!

Why don't you go on over to and start your own "styleBoards". It's like "paper dolls" for grown ups! (*whispers*..and hit up Zappos, 6pm, and  your neighborhood TJ Maxx too! )



  1. Omg!!! Girl, you racked up. You got some CUTE stuff. I been wanting a pair of leopard booties for a while. I love yours.

    Im excited too. I bought the Lola WP wedges in red today (same ones Christina Milian rocked at the Pampers event). The red was sold out in most stores but i found it at the location on 5th Avenue. WOOT WOOT!!!! I know just how im gonna wear them for the first time too. Cant wait!

  2. OMG....I loved those shoes she wore. And they were red?? *Jealous* Take pics please! They'd look hot w/ leopard or something.
