Spiked Splurge

I think I'm on an "S" kick lately between today's "Spiked Splurge" and yesterday's "Stunning Stacks."

Doesn't "Spiked Splurge" sound like a cocktail?  Maybe we should create one?

Anywho, hate to burst any bubbles but, alas, it isn't.

The spiked splurge in question is actually the "Beatrix" flat by Sam Edelman.

I love these flats because they remind me of the iconic Chanel flat with a rock 'n' roll edge.  The bows say "I'm sweet" while the spikes say "Don't mess with me."  I like that combo.  Sort of like Heidi Klum as a Project Runway judge.  Or Tyra standing before the two at-risk contestants at the end of ANTM.

Of all the colors available, the rose is my favorite.  The color is unique and unlike anything else in my closet.  I actually think I would wear these quite a bit, with what else?  My black skinny pants.  Also, leggings and a big, cozy sweater.

Of course, I know leopard print is favorite for most of you.

So here is the thing.  $129.95 is not exactly cheap but it is affordable if you want to make more of a footwear investment.  If you are someone who might only buy 1 or 2 pairs of shoes a season and you want to get your money's worth, I think these are worth a look.

They are fashionable, interesting and best of all, versatile.  Again, a "Compliment Catcher."

I have now moved onto the letter C.

CC Tip:  Don't let flats fool you.  They need to be broken in as well.  Sometimes you have to work through the pain (back of heel) to end up with a comfy pair.  No one said fashion doesn't hurt.
