ModCloth&Super Cute Shoes!

I'm not sure how many of you know about ModCloth or have shopped there, but recently I've been seeing it advertised in more and more places. For the uninitiated, ModCloth is an online store that sells vintage clothes, and modern recreations of them. They sell many of the same pieces as FredFlare but they're not as focused on the cutsey, whimsical accessories. You can choose from the plentiful selection of skirts and rompers, and their amazing shoe collection. I love so many of the shoes they sell that it's hard for me to pick my favorites, but there are two pairs of shoes in particular that really caught my eye when I first saw them.

First, there's this amazing red pair of sandals, that are a bit like booties, called the "Oh Snap! Sandals" for their button detailing. Since my school requires our shoes to have backs, I'm always looking for cute pairs of sandals with a backstrap: a rather difficult mission. These are not only a strap, but a whole back, and the fact that they rise to about 1/4 way up the calf in
ankle-boot style just makes them all the more charming. But the buttons are not just for show - you can actually button down a good bit of the part on the leg, to make them shorter. For only $34.99, these are a must-buy!

Next, there's this adorable pair of white booties with a cut-out pattern, just begging to be paired with an A-line skirt. As you can probably already tell, I'm a huge fan of ankle boots. I especially love these because they're very different from your typical ankle boot: they don't hug your calf, and the cut-out pattern makes them perfect for a nice spring or summer day. They also give you a two-inch advantage over everybody, with a hidden wedge on the inside: always a plus for me! However, at $149.99, I don't think I'm going to be buying these any time soon.
