Travel Shopping

I was in Columbus this weekend and per usual in my travels, I checked out the local shopping. Or rather, chain shopping but in a different locale. I'm bland and boring like that.

I was super excited especially to see the finds at The Runway at TJ Maxx, and I wasn't disappointed. How come my TJ Maxx doesn't look like this?! Run to your local Runway section if you have one. The prices aren't quite as good as say Nordstrom Rack, but they were decent enough on older finds that might be difficult to unearth other than on eBay.

Just some fun pictures. I was good to my bank account and didn't buy anything. They had lots of cool shoes available, but my favorites were these three. My favoritest was the Sergio Rossi pair. My shopping buddy called them "tacky", but I call them brilliant!

Sergio Rossi Yvette Fringed Sandals

Fit on these sandals seems pretty true to size. These are a 36.5, and while I may have preferred the 37 for length, the ankle wrap would have been too big in a 37.

Yves Saint Laurent Suede Sandals

I'm finding YSL seems to run small. These are the 36 and my foot was loafed into this pair. I think I would have needed a 37, could have gotten away with a 37.5 because of the strap.

Christian Dior Patent Leather Booties

Fit on these seemed true to size. The only size available was the 8, and I thought 'what the hell, I'll try em anyhow', and of course they were too big.

The local Saks at Polaris Fashion Place was fantastic as well. I adored all the eye candy but somehow maintained my willpower not to buy (or rather, they didn't have my size in what I loved).


  1. Lol, I love the fringed pair the best too, they're not tacky, they're fun!!

  2. Well no prizes for guessing which are my favourite - the Catholic school girl in me can never go past patent leather.

    Saks are really trying hard to make sure not only that you don't do a runner in their shoes! How big is that security tag?

    Has Sergio Rossi ever produced a tacky pair of shoes/sandals/boots? Nah! Those are made for the samba - ariba!

  3. man I love all three but I adore the YSLs the most!
