Wish List Wednesday: Diana E. Kelly - The Most Comfortable Shoes You Can Buy, Plus A Giveaway & Shopaholic Exclusive Discount!

Welcome to another edition of Wish List Wednesday! Today I want to introduce you to a designer I just recently discovered - Diana E. Kelly! You are going to love everything in this line, trust me! 

First, meet Diana, directly from her website (link HERE): 

Diana Elizabeth Kelly's passion for shoes has permeated through every aspect of her life. Born in Sarasota, Florida she has always had a proclivity for a sleek look and a fashion forward outfit only complimented with the perfect shoe. Her quest for the most beautiful shoes complimented by comfort at an attainable price has encouraged her to start Diana E Kelly, Inc. Diana E Kelly is not only a pathway of design and elegance, but also a means to attain her philanthropic pursuits.
Diana's life has been enveloped by style and design. At the age of five she began her expedition of design. Following her dream to the University of Florida, this proud Florida Gator completed a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration with a concentration in Urban and Regional planning. She spent a summer in France studying the intricacies of one of her many passions entrepreneurship and was pursuing a Masters in Interior Architecture when the idea for Diana E Kelly, Inc. was born. The culmination of her areas of study, community ties, and passion for shoes has driven her to bring you the simple elegance of Diana E Kelly.
I was lucky enough to "meet" Diana through Facebook and this blog, and after seeing her designs online, I knew I just had to try a pair of her gorgeous shoes. Diana was kind enough to send me a pair to try and I am in love with these shoes! Some of my current favorites include:
Red Maria Flats with Elephant Brooch, $148. (view on website HERE)
Now I don't know about you, but I have a real "problem" with closed toe shoes and ballet flats. I've never been able to find a pair that was stylish and comfortable. Even my favorite clothing designer (Lilly Pulitzer) lets me down with closed toe shoes. However - these Maria flats are hands down, the I have ever put on my feet. Honestly, the padded foot bed feels like you're walking on a cloud, and the backs of the shoes do not rub my heels. I can't wait to wear these at the first Alabama home football game! 
Now I plan to add these to my Diana E. Kelly collection - the Champagne Monica Wedge with Starfish Brooch, $128. (view on website HERE)
I'm willing to bet some of my Florida friends "need" this pair for opening game day at The Swamp - the Blue Monica Wedge with Alligator Brooch, $128. (view on website HERE)
I love to wear wedges (I'm only 5'6" after all) and these are beautiful! Meet the Champagne Ingrid Wedge with Turquoise Brooch, $158. (view on website HERE)
Lucky for us - Diana E. Kelly is also designing handbags! I have this one all ready and waiting for football season: the Red Cork Clutch with Elephant Brooch, $75. (view on website HERE)
This Gold Cork Clutch with Starfish Brooch, $75 would make a perfect compliment to the Monica Wedges. (view on website HERE)
