Designer Shoe Warehouse DSW – My New Go to Store for Shoes!

June 21, 2019

Happy Friday! 😊

I am going on a trip soon and needed a good pair of shoes to walk in during my travels. I have been looking for a good pair of versatile sandals that gave me some height, looked cute, and is worth the money (your girl is always on a budget). I decided to check out Designer Shoe Warehouse or DSW, and I’m glad I did!

I think most people fall into one of two categories:

  1. The person that loves shoes and has at least a pair for just about every occasion. This person probably owns more than ten pairs.
  2. The person that does not really go looking for shoes unless they need to.

Which one are you – 1 or 2? Neither?

I like cute shoes, but I prioritize comfort, versatility, and durability (whether I can wear it more than 1 year). Every time I got a new pair of shoes it was usually because of an occasion where I needed it. So, it’s no surprise that I ended up shoe shopping at DSW for a similar reason.

Usually I check out Ross, but I haven’t been able to find any that I liked. I noticed that many influencers have been wearing DSW and M’s sister tends to buy shoes from there, so I decided to give it a try.

Size reference: I am a size 7 in women’s shoes and ordered all pairs in size 7.

Lauri Wedge Sandal

This pair caught my eye because it looked like the perfect combination of a comfortable sneaker and cute sandal. Not to mention, the extra height in the platform is lovely. However, the shoes were too narrow for my feet. My feet were practically hanging out of the shoe! Everything about the shoe fit except the heeled platform. I was disappointed with the fit.

You can find this pair here.

Mia Valarie Platform Sandal

This pair is super cute and comfy. I like the crisscross detailing on the sandal. It’s a versatile shoe that compliments many outfits. I ended up returning this one because I found another one I liked better.

Breiza Platform Sandal

The shoes were comfy, but they were just too loose for my feet. The straps were adjustable but even the tightest notch was still too loose. I can’t poke a new hole either since the shoes have gold rim detailing around the notches. The top half of the shoe was too big as well. I would be a walking tripping hazard if I tried walking in these for more than a step. I would recommend this pair if you have wider feet or like a looser fit.

Brok Platform Sandal

My favorite! I tried this pair in both the light brown and black colors. I love the extra inch from the platform. I didn’t experience any issues with the fit and the shoes are comfortable and versatile. I can see myself wearing this to run casual errands and summer outings; this is definitely a staple for my upcoming trip. I decided to keep this pair in black.

Cute Freebie

DSW had a promotion for a free beach blanket with a purchase of shoes when I was making the order. I was surprised that the beach blanket was so colorful and vibrant. I’m excited to use this at the beach. I have wanted a cute blanket like this before (especially for cute beach photos) but I couldn’t justify buying an expensive blanket that I am only going to use a few times a year. Lucky for me, I scored with this promotion. DSW doesn’t skimp on their promotions for sure!

Some Notes

I was able to get great deals (ex. $25 off and 20% off) by signing up for an account on their site as a DSW VIP member. There are no fees associated with an account and the site offers tons of discounts and deals on shoes. Best of all, the site allows you to apply multiple codes at once to get the best deal for shoes.  Also, the shipping was fast and came early. I made two orders, and both came within a week of me placing the order.

If you are looking for cute, affordable shoes, I recommend looking at DSW. Their deals are awesome, and they offer many different styles. I am excited to wear my new sandals on the trip. Have you shopped at DSW before? Let me know in the comments! Feel free to recommend your favorite shops to me. If you liked this post, don’t forget to show love! <3
