Shoes Me – divine shoes & accessories in Pacific Beach

Shoes Me

Pacific Beach, CA 92109

What a fabulous treat I found when I wandered into Shoes Me in the Pacific Beach area of San Diego. Not only did I find beautiful shoes but some fantastic accessories as well. I found a divine brown handbag for the delicious price of $49! Perfect to stay stylish on the weekends or maybe running errands. There was an excellent selection of boots too. (I love boots) I took a lot of photos while I was in the store– my pictures are below.

Not only boots and shoes– I tried on some eye-catching beaded bracelets and noticed there were some really pretty earrings. I like the big earrings and Shoes Me had a fantastic selection.

In the store, I was greeted by an enthusiastic salesperson– and even offering red wine and chocolate! All this was perfect for me after a busy and stressful work week. Of course, it is always more fun to shop for shoes after a few sips of wine.

Great news– there is an amazing promotion going on right now at Shoes Me. Their flats are ringing up at $13 and boots are ringing up at $39 or less! Wedges and heels are $10 to $20 off.

My purchase– sunglasses. I’m always obsessed with sunglasses and fairly sure you can never have enough shades! I scored some cute animal print sunglasses for a mere $13. It was actually difficult to make a decision on which ones to buy– the selection was great.

I had a great time shopping at Shoes Me and definitely planning a return trip. I really want to try on more shoes! (I’m in the market for Spring sandals and wedges)






Exclusively American – San Diego – UTC Mall

Made in America. Many times these words are hard to find on most products we purchase at the mall.

While roaming thru the Westfield UTC Mall tonite I came across a new kiosk called Exclusively American. What a fabulous find!  Lovely infinity scarves, funky feathered wrist wraps… What more could you want? Well, scroll down and you will see a beautiful selection of bags to carry your yoga mat. Genius idea. The very best thing about all this – everything is made in America!  You can be patriotic and look amazing at the same time.

I’m planning a return trip here this week for one of these scarves. I have my eye on that pretty red one.  (I’m trying to inject more color in my wardrobe — I’m guilty of wearing way too much black!)

As I like to say– I’ll be back!!
