I've been majorly lusting over the Mira Heel from Madewell for quite some time now but could never quite pull the trigger no matter how often people raved how comfortable they were. Unfortunately, my higher ed salary doesn't lend itself well to $168 heels. Last week, I did a little outlet shopping with my mama while she was in town and I found these heels, which are strikingly similar to the Mira, at J.Crew Factory for $118 and an additional 40% off. Add in the 15% educational discount (just need to show a student ID or .edu email address!) and I think I found myself a pretty good deal! While this particular pair isn't online, you can find the style in patent or printed online. I wore them pretty much all night to a show, dinner and drinks and only at the very end of the night were they pinching a bit. All that to say, they are totally worth it -- especially if you're also looking for an affordable yet comfortable alternative to the Mira Heel.
I have a few signature events and big changes coming up at work which I'm excited for but will make for a busy April. I don't anticipate anything changing/slowing down around here but if they do, now you know why! :)
