Finally, I Found THE Shoes!

I have been looking for the last ten years for a pair of perfect shoes...stylish shoes...and comfortable shoes which would accept my funky feet just as they are!  When I saw them...I ran across a crowded shoe department in STEIN MART for the embrace!
Readers, friends, family...all, know me in my flats.  I have had a myriad of foot issues for years which took heels (for the most part) out of my life. Trust me...when I say my feet are funky that covers so many things.  But, my longing to find THE SHOE...the one I felt fashionable and comfortable in at the same time has been growing.
I had never heard of BERNIE MEV until I got to Stein Mart last week.  Just looking at the construction of the shoe made me want to give it a try.  The minute it was on my foot, I had hope.  Then I walked around and around and they felt so great, I almost danced right there in the store.  
Once I went to THE BERNIE MEV WEBSITE, I could see they were made for comfort.  STEIN MART carries several styles and colors.  Warning...you will see these often on my blog!

My other accessories from the OUTFIT ON MONDAY, included a Victoria Bosco clutch I have owned for several years, and this bracelet,,,,
The lovely bracelet is part of the  CAROLYN POLLACK STERLING SILVER jewelry called AMERICAN WEST.   This is the STERLING SILVER LAPIS LEAF bracelet. 

Remember,,,accessories can take any outfit to the next level...be purposeful with your choices!  It's fun!

Happy First Day of Autumn!

  1. That bracelet is beautiful!! Isn't it great to find something at long last that you've been on the lookout for! It really is a great feeling!

  2. Congrats on this stylish find, Pam! These shoes look like the perfect blend of modern style and comfort. I am so with you on finding shoes that will not be hard on my feet. I'll keep an eye out for this brand. I am to say I've just launched my "Fall Fashion Crush" collection on my Stylemindchic Boutique featuring emerging designers from NYC and LA. The styles are modern, chic and well-priced. My recent post is featuring some highlights. I would love for you to take a peek. Happy first day of fall my friend!

  3. I am still dreaming. Will check out Bernie Mev. My issue is that any heel height over 1" messes with my back.

  4. Stephanie - a gentle suggestion that maybe addressing your back problems may be than long term solution, not avoiding fun shoes forever. Have you had help advice about your back?

  5. Love that bracelet! And the shoes are cute, too. :)

  6. Looking great!! I found and bought a pair after I got home from my cruise. Every woman was wearing them!! Mine are flat.

  7. I have so many foot issues! Ugh! I hope you bought two pairs of this great shoe, because you'll mourn them when the first pair needs to be replaced. xoxox

  8. Glad you were able to find a pair of shoes with a heel that fits like a dream!


    Would love for you to stop by & join TBT Fashion link up.

  9. Thank you so much for telling me about these fabulous AND comfortable shoes!! Love them Pam!

  10. Love those shoes! They're the answer to the open toed bootie (which is just too over the top for me). And you can have sexy feet without breaking your neck! Yayyyy!!
