All of the high schools on KAUAI have had their proms but there is one last private school that will be ending their school year with a bang by having their prom at THE GRAND HYATT BALLROOM. My teen daughter picked out the cutest shoes for her dress from PAYLESS SHOESOURCE. She’s been breaking them in by wearing them around the house everyday and also to get comfortable in such high heels. To make the insole a little more soft, I purchased a comfort pad that made it a lot easier to walk in.
The last time I went into a ROSS DRESS FOR LESS store was years ago and I didn’t find a thing I liked. It’s one of those stores that’s a hit and miss for me. Sometimes I find things I like and sometimes I don’t. I guess my shopping experience depends on what I need at the time because I’m not much of an impulse shopper. For several months, I shopped on KAUAI looking for a new pair of athletic shoes. I found some Nike’s and Puma’s that I liked but I hated the price tag. The styles I wanted ranged from $70-$90. I know that’s the normal price range for good quality shoes but those two brands do go on sale. Kauai doesn’t have anything like a Ross Dress For Less. In fact, there is very limited shopping here. Most of my closet purchases are made online and off island. So I held off until my trip to one of Kauai’s neighboring islands. This time, I got lucky. Not only did I find Puma shoes I liked but I paid a lovely $35 for them. Yes, it is a style from a past season but that doesn’t matter to me. I owned a pair of Puma’s years ago and the shoe lasted me a year. I’ve been wearing it for several weeks and I find it works best for indoor workout classes. I’m still on the hunt for a good outdoor/light weight athletic shoe.
If you’ve visited this site before, you already know that I have a lot of slippers. I’m in slippers almost everyday so I’m always on the lookout for what’s cute and comfortable. My newest two pairs are from VOLCOM. You will find me talking about the Volcom brand a lot because I wear a lot of their stuff. The line is edgy, fun and almost everything fits me real good. The ALL DAY LONG CREEDLER is part of the spring 2012 Creedler line and is made with a leather like upper sole, has small studded details for an edgy look, and is very thin making it a light weight slipper. It’s also wearable for almost any type of casual outing. I purchased the black and white pair. But it’s also available in bright turquoise and brown. The slipper retails for $28.
This glittery jelly shoe from MELISSA+CAMPANA is super cute and light weight making it a great casual shoe to go along with a casual ensemble for the day and the glittery color makes your look festive and fun for the holiday season. Regularly priced at $80, the gold color can now be purchased for $53.95 at AMAZON. I’ve included images of the other colors that are marked at regular price. The last image is in powder pink now on sale for $48.95 You can click on the link under each color for more information.
These days it’s so important to be planet-friendly. As much as possible I use ECO friendly products to help lessen my foot print on this beautiful planet. My daughter loves flats and I’ve chosen this Zoe & Zac Dittany Twist Flat for her from PAYLESS made of ECO friendly materials. Right now it’s on sale. Regularly priced at $34.99, it’s now on sale for $25.99 and is available in the colors black and khaki.
RAINBOW SANDALS has a reputation for providing quality sandals that are very comfortable and durable. As I began looking for boots for the upcoming winter season, I was pleasantly surprised to find that RAINBOW makes boots. There’s two different styles to choose from.
BAHA BOOT NATURAL made with genuine sheepskin inside and out, trimmed with nubtuck leather, heel support with nubtuck leather and RAINBOW’S famous footbed with arch support. Shown in Sierra. Also available in dark brown, sand and black. Retails for $120
BAHA BOOT SYNTHETIC has micro fleece trim, lined with synthetic sheepskin, trimmed with nubtuck leather, heel support with nubtuck leather and RAINBOW’S famous footbed with arch support. Available in dark brown and sand. Retails for $59.99
I found these lovely wedge platform shoes. A perfect compliment to a summery dress and a simple night on the town with friends or family. Both pairs are on sale now for $70. The extra 25% discount will be taken off during checkout. Not bad for a designer pair of shoes regularly priced for $98.

Living on an island, you can never have too many slippers. HAVAIANAS is one of my favorite brands to purchase slippers from. The best out of all their styles is the slim or top styles embellished with crystals. Perfect for the beach, running around town complimented by a sun dress or a warm night out with skinny jeans. With the affordable price, Havaianas makes it easy to have a couple pairs or more. The slippers in my pictures are from past seasons. You can visit their website for the new styles that are similar to mine. A good one to get would be the slim crystal flower that retails for $38.
