#ThriftyThursday: These shoes were made for walking.

#ThriftyThursday: As Marilyn Monroe once said, “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” Even the slightest heel prompts a lady to stand proud while adding a finishing touch to her outfit.

In a recent visit to the Northfield store, I was impressed with the women’s shoe selection. Aisles were filled with spunky, name brand shoes, each telling a different story. To share their message, I snapped photos of a few of my favorite pairs.

Black Michael Kors wedges: These beauties have never hit the ground! If I were a size 9.5, I would pair these with

colored jeans and a loose blouse. They come in the original box, with a $145 department store price sticker. One lucky Goodwill shopper will snag this thrifty Goodwill find for just $39.95.

Leopard Gianni Bini heel: My favorite brand of shoes are Gianni Bini simply because they are cute and comfortable. Chunky heels are totally in! (Especially if they are only $3.99.) This size 8 pair is lightly worn and just needs a little black dress to match!

Gold Michael Kors wedges: Terry, Northfield store’s manager, saw these shoes and said, “Adrienne, you need these!” If only I were a size 7, these Michael Kors wedges would have a new home. The soles are in mint condition and would pair perfectly with a summer statement dress. They retail for over $100 on Macy’s display; Goodwill’s shelf has them for $25.99.

Red Charlotte Russe open-toed booties: Nothing talks like a pair of red high heels. Despite their height, these red Charlotte Russe heels were not difficult to walk in and considerably comfortable. I consider this red-hot pair a weekend shoe, having a suede texture and gold zipper accent. If I had somewhere special to be, these size 6.5 booties definitely be on my feet.

As you can see, Goodwill is merchandising ladies shoes so that shoppers may conquer the world one step at a time.
