Jessie's Sale


You know these Dany platforms from the Jessica Simpson Collection that Keiko wears?  I love them.  They're on sale (>$50!) and come in several fabulous colors.  Unfortunately, they're completely inappropriate for my way of life and at a height of 5.8", would take up too much closet space reserved for boring, practical shoes.  But one can dream.

Like a lot of Jessica Simpson's shoes (and clothes), they look more expensive than they actually are.  Which must be why her fashion line is so successful, making her way more moola than she could've ever made on her music (right?).  I just bought my first pair of JS's from DSW - stilettos - and they're gosh darn comfy, that's what.

Just one request for JS:  Keep all branding on the inside, pretty please.  It's the one thing that deters me from some of your products. Trust me, the stuff is fabulous enough that people will ASK what brand it is.

Those shoes are amazing. I want a pair, but I'd be afraid of falling over.

I couldn't agree more about the branding. I have a pair of JS brown suede boots that I LOVE, but will not buy anything of hers that has her name clearly displayed on the outside of her merchandise. All-in-all though, I'm really impressed with her shoe line.

I love the idea of these shoes, but wish they maxed out at 4" instead of 5.8". I know I could walk in them just fine, but they boarder a bit too much on stripper heels for me.

The less than $50 price is tempting though . . .

Count me in as one who likes (maybe even loves) the Jessica Simpson shoe line, but doesn't like her initials/name slathered all over everything. And it's not just here, I don't like it when any designer does it.

As for these, they are gorgeous, but I would be 6'5.8" in them and no one wants to see that.

Wow- it's actually THE jessica simpson? I'm from England and so when I've seen her stuff (in particular these shoes which I love!) popping up on fashion blogs, I was convinced that it must be a new designer or line who was unfortunate to have the same name as her!

Thanks for enlightening me. Now I am jealous because I want to buy these shoes but the plane fare might make them less affordable.

If I thought for 1 second I could wear those and NOT break and ankle I would buy a pair in every color. Seriously. I loveeeeeeeeee them. So much.

Completely agree with your assessment! I love the looks of these shoes, but I might die. And I just *can't* advertise for JS... keep the branding subtle, bebe.
