The Ruby Reta {another Target shoe review}


The Merona Collection Reta in Ruby #096040438 - $32.99

Well I noticed this shoe a week or two ago and thought it was awfully cute but wasn't quite sure. Then the other day I'm reading my Shop Smart magazine and there they are:

and I decide I must get them - I even know what I want to wear with them.

So Sunday I ran to Target and it took me a while to find them but there were 3 pairs left, plus 1 pair in black. I would usually just buy the 8 1/2 but they didn't have one so I tried on the 8 and the 9. The 9 was way too big and the 8 actually felt fine. Now that I have them home with some little foot pads in them (and you need them - even though it says they have a cushioned footbed, they felt very hard on the balls of my feet) - I am glad I got the 8. They feel perfect! Love the suede + patent + slight platform combo. The color is beautiful.

Like the Cranberry Valdas, I think this is another versatile shoe, though I obviously won't wear them as much as I would a flat, given my lifestyle. But here's is what I'm thinking first - this wrap sweater dress in lt. gray, also currently at Target:

This is the Small in Green and I don't have tag info as I didn't buy it but I think it was around $29.99. Also came in Lt. Gray and Black.

Oh and don't forget about Sephora's Friends & Family (code FF2009). I just ordered my mom a Clarisonic brush set (love mine) for her birthday and I wasn't sure the code would apply - but it did! So I saved $39 and got free shipping too... and go through ebates for your 4% back!

Happy Monday!

xoxo

  4. I saw these Retas on Target's website Saturday and thought they looked so darling!!! (I love Mary Janes "with a twist"--fun.) Thanks for reviewing them; I totally trust your judgment! (You model them so well.)

    Oh, and thank you for the Sephora F&F code. You are the consummate shopper and tip-revealer!
