    A warning on Charlotte Russe shoes: they tend to run at least 1 size large.  If you have small feet, a size 7 or less, *make sure you try the shoe on.*  I wear a size 6, and I can’t even buy shoes there because they don’t have enough sizes below that to compensate.

    Also, if you live in the south or are comfortable buying shoes online, check out Bealls (  They have a couple pairs of sexy heels for about $25.  One style’s got gorgeous rhinestones on the strap, and looks like that kind you’d pay $150 for at Macy’s.  Their sizes are pretty standard, but if you have a range that you usually buy in, err toward the smaller.

    That first pair, from Payless, is really cute. I noticed that there are silver and gold choices, and (judging from the photos on the website at least,) the gold pair appears to be a nice muted gold/nude color (not a tacky, yellowy gold).

    They also look like the heel is a bit lower than some of the others, which can be a lifesaver after a couple hours of socializing and dancing.

    Dang, too bad I’m way past my prom days; I’d love to have an excuse to pick up those shoes!
