for jennifer....

so, jennifer asked for a favor, and i'm never one to turn down a challenge.

I have a mission for you, if you choose to accept!

Find me a cheaper version of these pretties! Please? I grabbed this pic from BlissfulTiff's blog and she says they're Marc Jacobs... I'm in desperate need of some simple black closed toe heels.

okay, dearie. black heels. here are some of my picks:

so, i realize these chinese laundry numbers are a wedge, not a heel. but i think for daywear, they'd actually be more comfortable, and they definitely have the character of a heel. plus, they jazz up the classic just a little, with the toe detailing. $59.95 here.

i'm also really liking these seychelles pumps - again, classic with just a little flare to keep them interesting. $64.95 from nordstrom.

these linea paolo pumps have a toe and vamp that's almost identical to the marc jacobs shoes you showed me...but a narrower heel, which won't be as comfortable. still, for looks, these are pretty close. $89.95, also at nordstrom.

michael by michael kors seems to be the mid-range shoe line of choice for fall...they've done a great job. these pumps have a bit of a platform, which should make them more comfortable. i think they'd be great for work. a little pricier at $138.95, but they'll last longer than some other brands would.

i just picked these up in brown, but i think they're lovely in black as well. i think the lower heel makes them a perfect work choice. they're from one of my new favorite shoe sites - they're $98, with free shipping and no tax :)

and, i'm just throwing these in because i completely love them. kenneth cole reaction, $89.95.

so, how'd i do??
