Cash, check, or charge: Medallion flats

By now, you've all seen the Tory Burch "Reva" flat. This clearly has to be the most knocked off shoe I've seen in my life, lol. I'm starting to see them everywhere. Hell, I even bought a pair from Go Jane. It's all good. Us Cheap Chicas love to get in on the trend, too. Here are a couple of pairs I've found, including the real ones, to fit every budget.

The most comfortable wedges I own: Easy Spirit's "Rikki" wedge

"Rikki" wedge $59 (on sale), Easy Spirit

If only all cute wedge sandals were this comfortable, us ladies would have it made. I love these sandals so much. Not only are they cute and the color of them goes with just about anything (this is the color I have, but there are more colors available), but I can walk for miles and miles and hours and hours (did that today) in these babies and my feet won't scream for mercy. Even my mom, who doesn't wear a heel higher than 1" because she insists that every high heel shoe made is "very uncomfortable", borrowed these from me last night to wear to dinner, and she didn't complain. She now wants to get a pair- mine. No way lady, you gotta get your own, lol. Here is a pic of the shoes on my feet to give you an idea of how they look on. Don't laugh at my feet, you know you've seen worse, lol:

What I'm reading now: "How Do You Work this Life Thing?" by Lizzie Post

Man, where was this book eight years ago when I became an independent woman? Lizzie Post, great great granddaughter of Emily Post and daugther of author Peter Post, gives you this interesting guide on how to deal with life as a newly independent young adult. This book offers advice for everything- from choosing your roommates (and learning how to get along with them), to landing the perfect job. The section in the book that I've most enjoyed was moving into your first place and choosing your roommates, because it brought back memories for me. I wish this book was available when Mr. Cheap Chica and I moved into our first apartment because the advice in this book probably would've avoided us from trying to strangle each other, lol. Just kidding. I recommend this book for anyone getting out on their own for the first time. It's not easy, but I'm sure this book would help guide you through.

Clutch also has daily gossip, news and info. So if you love fashion, beauty, culture and life, add Clutch to the list of your favorite reads. You won't be disappointed.

My Ebay listings...free shipping for Cheap Chica readers

Not many, but it's a start of getting rid of the clutter before I move. If any of you gals are a size 9, check them out. Also, for Cheap Chica readers who win any of my auctions, you will get free shipping (US residents only). Just send me a message after I send out the invoice to let me know that you're a Cheap Chica reader, and I'll send out another invoice reflecting the free shipping.

I'm back....just taking it one day at a time

I just want to say that I'm back. I know, I know, it was very brief, but I'm getting over my problem little by little. I think it is the power of prayer and the support from friends and family that's helping me get through this rough time. I feel a lot better than I did this past weekend. I would also like to thank you wonderful readers out there for showing me love and lifting my spirits with your encouraging comments. I really appreciate that. I'll be back to posting this weekend, so stay tuned...


Goodbye for now... I won't be gone for long

Due to problems in my personal life, I won't be posting for a while. This will be my last post until everything is straightened out. I'm very sorry. Hopefully, I'll be posting again real soon, so keep checking back. Bye.

It's all about Mom @ E.L.F.
