What to Wear: Red Shoes

A good pair of red shoes can be a very powerful thing. Here is Elizabeth's request:
I’m in the market for a pair of red heels- something in the $100-150 range (or less). Patent, regular leather, peep toe, closed toe- I’m open to anything that is red and has a medium heel. Everything I’ve seen is either way out of budget, or is too cheap and plastic looking. If you’re interested, I’d love a post about any red heels you think are stylish and perfect for spicing up a fall/winter outfit!
I have a pair of burgundy/red patent flats that I've been wearing with jeans, skirts, etc. for a few weeks. There are a ton of great red shoes out there right now, especially in darker colored patent leather. I found a five options for Elizabeth:

1. Anthropologie - Red heels with an ankle strap and a vintage feel. These could be great for someone with a fun, feminine style. $88. $68.
2. Bandolino - This slightly conservative pump can go from work to party and right back. I love the darker red color. $69.
3. Sofft - An affordable, comfortable, red patent leather pump that is decently cute? Lovely! $89.
4. Jeffrey Campbell - The heel is a little high, but JC makes the most comfortable shoes in my experience. Love the dark color, wide heel and flirty strap. $74.
5. Target - On the other end of the color and price spectrum, but still darn adorable! $29.

I NEVER thought i'd find myself in a pair of red heels, but i was walking through J.C.Penny's not to long ago and saw these:

I had to go back and get them and i'm glad i did. They're super cute, but not to crazy. Look great with dark jeans or black tights. Love em' to death. Definately worth checkthing them out. Best part...they're less than 25.00
