NordstromNordstromWondering how to update your shoe wardrobe for fall? Wonder no more!

Mary Janes are back, and better than ever.

This is one trend I like, both for its retro feel and the fact that a well-positioned strap makes almost any pump more comfortable.

I'm crazy about this Prada Wedge, but not so thrilled with its $790 price tag. Not to worry, though. I've got a range of Mary Janes that are far more budget-friendly!


Lord & TaylorLord & TaylorGet the Prada look for less with these Nine West wedge pumps (Lord & Taylor, $52.49 on sale). This is a PERFECT shoe for work -- sharp, stylish, and reasonably comfortable as well!

Lord & TaylorLord & TaylorThere are a lot of lower-heeled Mary Janes out there, but many of them look frumpy or like elf shoes. This Vercelli Suede pump, though (Lord & Taylor, $59.99), still looks feminine and stylish. I APPROVE.


Charlotte RusseCharlotte RusseLooking to vamp it up? These red suede Mary Janes (Charlotte Russe, $39.50) come in a range of colors and look like they cost far more than two sawbucks! And right now, if you buy one pair of shoes at CR, you get a second pair for $15.50. GET ON THAT.
