These shoes are such a departure for me! But I featured them last month in this post, and ever since, I wasn't able to get them out of my head. You know that's the shopping God's way of whispering in your ear, "buy the shoes. Buy the damn shoes already". I still wasn't completely convinced so when I went on an impromptu trip to South Coast Plaza a couple weeks ago, I stopped in at Nordstrom and saw these. I tried on a bunch of wedge sandals - Steve Madden, Sole Society, Nine West, Sam Edelman. They were all lovely enough, but most were way too high and sizing was off on most. So I actually did something I've never ever done before. I looked on my own blog via my phone, referred back to my own post, and showed the SA these shoes by the brand Hinge. Lo and behold, not only did I get a new reader (hello!), but I also found my perfect funky "wedges". They aren't really a wedge, more of a chunky stacked heel that is perfectly out of my comfort zone...but also perfectly comfortable. 

I cannot wait to finally shop the anniversary sale tomorrow! I'm just gonna do the whole online thing since I have a couple personal appointments to attend to and my nearest Nordstrom is 45 minutes away. I've narrowed my list to these jeans, this palette, and this candle set. I'll be sure to show you the goods next week, if not here then on Instagram or Snapchat (Noelleengel)

Have you ever used your own blog to try and locate an item? It's pretty convenient!

  3. Gorgoues shoes!!!

  4. LOL! That's funny that you referred to your blog in store to find the shoes. I've referred to my own blog for quite a few things but I don't think I've done that...yet! And those are perfect nude sandals. Welcome to the world of (one of) my favorite shoe types - the stacked heel! And that dress is really, really cute! I'd like one more dress this summer...might need to check LOFT!

  5. Thank you ladies! They are still available if you're interested ;) They are extremely comfortable and I can wear them now or in Fall! It's a great all-around shoe.

  6. That's too funny! I've definitely refer back to my blog A LOT - the latest was when I needed a leather conditioner for my bags - I had linked to one in my vintage Chanel post - and I wanted to make sure I bought the right one!

    It's amazing that you were able to find such cute shoes - and get a new reader too!

  7. These sandals are so cute and love the nude color. I use my blog to find stuff all the time lol.


  8. Those sandals are really cute!
