A Magic Little “Potion”

by Ashley on February 10, 2010

Once upon a time, I believed that the first song I heard in a club would set the tone for the evening… So what does the first pair of shoes in a bright, shiny, new decade mean?

When I’d heard that Jeffrey Campbell was going on sale on Gilt Fuse, I got geared up… I was hoping that the “Potion” boots were going to be featured, as I’ve been wanting them for months.  But I kept wavering up and down at the hefty price tag.  So imagine my delight when not only where they on sale… they were only $69… Add in some Gilt credits, and these sweet boys were on their way home to me for $30 (including shipping!).

Even though I’d heard about how comfortable Jeffrey Campbell shoes were, I was skeptical….maybe because the one pair I’d tried on, so many years ago, was a super narrow ballet flat. It made everyone’s feet look fat and had little support… so I was extra surprised that not only do these fit, but they’re incredibly comfortable as well. The added platform and wedge heel are a great combination…

What I love most about them is how outside of my comfort zone they seem… there’s nothing in my closet like them, yet I’m already imagining all of the ways that I can wear them. How’s that for a premonition for the 20-teens?

Oh, I definitely will! I’m also still REALLY excited about the price of them….

Lovely shoes – and soo cheap! I can imagine them looking both sophisticated and edgy in equal measure

Lauren– I think the sophisticated and edgy is what appealed to me… that they can be so fashion forward (as seen on so many girls), yet they have this punk, goth quality to them. It’ll be fun to experiment with!

Haha, I’ve got a post coming up in a few days about Jeffrey Campbell shoes. I loveloveloved the Potions too, but didn’t buy them because I tend to have issues with open-toed shoes (also, I think every woman in San Francisco owns a pair!). But! I did buy 2 different versions of the Clinic wedges, and it’s true love!

Getting the Potions for $30 was a major coup, btw. Congrats!!

Luckily, I don’t think New Orleans is as “fashion forward” as San Fran in that regard… while it’s got its own great style, it’s nothing like that! (I haven’t seen anyone in them yet…. not that I get out a lot.)

I’ll definitely be trying out more of their shoes now though….

Those shoes / boots are the most amazing I have seen in a while (and wow, what a steal). I think they would look amazing juxtaposed against a really classic outfit.

I love the idea of pairing them with a really classic outfit! I may have to try that out and see what I can come up with…

Michelle February 10, 2010 at 10:43 pm

I still think the price is fabulous, and they’re gorgeous in person! Can’t wait to see/hear how you wear them :D

The price makes me sing! What a steal.

Alicia February 11, 2010 at 12:16 am

Damn. You get the best Gilt deals!! Now wear them and take lots of pictures. =D

I really try and save up my gilt credits for that OMG NEED piece instead of spending them (+ extra $$) whenever I get them. This time around I lucked out because I had more than I thought I had!

Rachel February 11, 2010 at 12:06 am

I can’t wait to see them styled up. cool pick!

Love these. Definitely oh-my-god shoes! And being able to get them for such a steal makes them even better.
