Well, Charlotte Russe contacted me and offered to send me a couple pairs from the new spring shoe line (lucky me, I wear the sample size!).
Here's one pair.
These Ballerina Mesh Ruffle Platform Heels (Charlotte Russe, $38) are gorgeous -- and with Charlotte Russe's current buy-one-get-one for $15 deal, they're way affordable -- but I wear an 8 1/2 and these shoes only come in whole sizes. So I was a bit worried about how they'd fit.
Want to know what I thought, and see more cute CR shoes? Read on!
The fit was fantastic!
In fact, I was glad they were a half size larger, because it made them more comfortable -- the ankle straps keep them firmly on my feet. Also? These are definitely the thickest platform and highest heels I own -- and girl, I have me some HIGH platforms already!
The funny (or not so funny, actually) thing is that I've bought two pairs of Jessica Simpson shoes to get this same effect -- one pair was $78, the other $98, and these $38 Charlotte Russe shoes are twice as comfortable!
Even more comfortable are these Butterfly Loop Front Wood Heels ($35.50) CR sent out:
The suede and wood may be faux, but you can't tell by looking at them, and the straps are so soft that these shoes are far easier to wear than they should be.
Honestly, these two pairs of shoes are enough to convince me that I've been totally overspending on my sexy date night shoes.
I am now officially a Charlotte Russe convert. And I'm hoping the Ballerina Platform Heels come back in stock in nude because, if that happens, I'm totally buying a pair!
Want to see some other cute shoes Charlotte Russe is offering right now? Take a look:
I covet these strappy Leopard Print Wedges (Charlotte Russe, $32.50). *sigh*
This Twist Front Satin Heel Bootie (Charlotte Russe, $40) is to die for.
And these Cross Strap Satin Peep Toe Heels (Charlotte Russe, $32.50) are pretty much guaranteed to get you noticed!
What do you think of Charlotte Russe's shoe selection? Would you wear a pair on a night out?
