OOTD: “The Jessica Simpson Color-Block ‘Bendie’ Pumps”
Can I just say that I’ve been waiting forever to wear these shoes. These are called the “Bendie” by Jessica Simpson. Boy, I sure see why Jessica’s a billionaire just from her shoe and accessories line. These babies are so hot. I literally had to wait and wait to get my hands on these. I first saw them months ago on several websites but no one had my size available. Then I finally found them and ordered them and guess what, I was sent the wrong color. So after waiting another month or so Macy’s got them in my correct size AND color. But good things come to those who wait because I was able to get them for a sale price when they did finally become available.
Ok,now on to the description of the shoe. Right now I’m allover this “color blocking” trend and that’s why I just had to have these. The description of the shoe says deep purple but they also have a neon-yellow and bright pink color on them too. However the heel portion is black. The heel is 5 inches but the platform makes it very wearable. I’m going on my fifth hour straight of having them on and haven’t taken them off yet. I was web surfing last week and see that Jessica now has them in a few other color choices now as well. I’m gonna have to stay up to date on these bad boys because I for sure wouldn’t mind having them in all colors……if I can get my size, lol.
My dress takes on the color blocking theme too as it is deep purplish-blue at the top and like a slate grey on the bottom. At first I didn’t think that I would be able to pull off this dress and the shoes together but for one, I couldn’t wait another day to wear these shoes, and two, I figured once I added my jewelry it would all blend together. Not bad if I must say so myself. In the pics it’s not that noticeable that the top of the dress and shoes are not exactly the same shade of purple. The reviews of this dress on the HSN website are horrible but I don’t have any complaints. It’s a thin jersey material so it kept me cool on this 100 degree day. That’s why I seldom go by reviews. Some customers are just so hard to please and picky. Plus after snagging it for the sale price of only seven bucks I can’t complain!
