I had to bring out the sale spotlight again after my mom alerted me to the Last Chance Designer Sale going on at Amazon and, as usual, mom knows best – this is definitely a whopper of a sale (thanks ma!). During this sale, you can get steep discounts of up to 85% on select designer shoes, including styles from Georgina Goodman, Casadei, Bally, Ruthie Davis and more. These are shoes that normally cost hundreds of dollars and virtually all of them are marked down to under $150 (and some well under), plus you get free shipping. Size selection for many styles is limited, as is the norm for this kind of “last chance” sale, but I managed to find a few pairs that have decent availability and a steep discount. Let’s check them out:
Donna Karan Sequined Peep Toe Pump in black or grey for $114.60 (list price $764.95)
Georgina Goodman Felicity in red or black for $108 (list price $720)
Sui Generis Saphire in solid black or red diamond for $101.85 (list price $679.95)
Georgina Goodman Fia in grey for $120 (list price $800)
Georgina Goodman Cher in dark brown for $110.25 (list price $735)

Dillards is having a really good shoe sale right now. So good, in fact, that I had to break out our trusty sale spotlight to highlight some of the best deals. They’ve taken an additional 40% off all permanently reduced sale items, which includes a selection of almost 350 women’s shoes (the sale price reflects the extra discount). So, let’s take a look at some of the best shoe shopping bargains they have going on:
Michael Michael Kors Camden in black for $54 (originally $150)
Dolce Vita Celtic in platinum for $50.70 (originally $169)
Calvin Klein Prive in zebra for $41.99 (originally $108). Of note, Amazon has the same shoe for a slightly higher price of $43.18, but free shipping is included.
Steve Madden Korset in black for $59.99 (originally $149)
Steve Madden Tayla in black for $41.99 (originally $99)
Beverly Feldman Chaos in leopard for $107.64 (originally $299)
J.Renee Makensy in platinum or pewter for $34.20 (originally $95)
BCBGeneration Border in black or rasberry for $33 (originally $110)
Vince Camuto Minnie in black for $89.99 (originally $198)
As far as I can tell, these prices can’t be touched at any other store right now. The sale ends 2/27/10.

I know a lot of people have been interested in the dramatic red feathered heels that Kim Zolciak from The Real Housewives of Atlanta wore last season to castmate Kandi’s birthday party. It’s been quite awhile since we saw her wear them on the Bravo show, but I’ve found that people are still looking for them, even to this day. I mentioned before that I thought they were Christian Louboutin, but wasn’t able to pinpoint the exact style. However, I’ve since found out that they are the Christian Louboutin Anemone Plume (seen here at Miss Lovely) and it doesn’t appear they were ever sold online. In fact, it was hard to find a picture of the red version – I found the image above on the Superhero blog – and I’m guessing they are no longer available. But, I came across this feathered shoe by Nina today, which I think is a viable alternative:
Sure, they aren’t red and they aren’t Louboutin, but the look of the Nina Xtina is quite similar and offers plenty of plumage at a fraction of the cost. You can get these at Macy’s for $99.95 and they are also having a nice little sale right now that takes 50% off your second pair of shoes when you buy one. If you don’t see your size or don’t plan to buy a second pair, get them for the same price at Zappos with free shipping included.
Zappos also offers the white and ivory versions, which are particularly perfect for brides searching for a bridal feather shoe.
If only the Anemone will do, try contacting a Christian Louboutin boutique for more info on its availability.

I don’t know what it is about miniature baby studs on shoes, but they get me every time. That’s why I’m loving this new style, the DKNYC Odetta pump in black or cognac leather, for $120 at Lord & Taylor. Get them for less by applying coupon code BIG at checkout, which takes 15% off regularly-priced items. That brings your total down to $102 plus shipping. You can also apply the same coupon code to any other regularly-priced women’s shoes they offer or get a sweet extra 25% off clearance shoes. There are plenty of great deals in the clearance section, like the Steven by Steve Madden Tutorr grommeted platform slingback for $52.49 after code (retail $169); however, sizes are limited for most styles, so choose yours at the top to narrow it down to available options. The coupon ends 2/28/10 and some exclusions apply.

I love finding a great deal on Betsey Johnson shoes, especially one like the Betsey Johnson Kottes in black. It’s a mary jane style in schoolgirl plaid, but far from being sweet and innocent. This is Betsey, after all. Of course she adds a naughty, rocker chick twist with the super-high heel, large buckle and stud detail, which contrasts so well with the classic print. To top it off, they are on sale at Amazon, where you can get them for $76.99 – that’s a sweet 60% off their retail price of $190. Sizes are getting a bit limited, but you can still currently find 6.5-8.5 and shipping is also free. The sale price expiration, if any, is unknown.
Update: If you are a size 9.5 or 10, get a slightly better price at Lord & Taylor. They are on clearance for $84.99 and coupon code BIG takes another 25% off. That makes them $63.74, but shipping is $9.95 extra. Or, get free shipping if your order is $150 or more. The coupon expires 2/28/10.

Cheap Chick is doing the happy dance because it’s Saturday and we’re finally having a beautiful warm day – a welcome break from the dreary, cold, icy weather that’s been prevalent here lately. What else makes Cheap Chick happy? Cute shoes on the cheap, of course. So, before this little birdie goes outside to do…well, what chicks normally do (flitting around, chirping, pecking for bugs, etc.), she thought she’d round up some of the best brand name shoes for $25 or less. All of these are offered by 6pm:
Dolce Vita 5125-51 in brown or black for $25 (MSRP $125). Sizes are getting really limited, so snatch this awesome deal up quick if your size is available.
J.Renee Blaze in white or brown for $21.99 (MSRP $109.95). Love the bead detail on these.
Hale Bob Cara in black for $19.80 (MSRP $99).
Enzo Angiolini Caitria in black for $17.80 (MSRP $89).
Steven Lalo in black leather and four other color choices for $25 (MSRP $125). It looks like some of the color options are sold out.
Exchange by Charles David Acrobat in burgundy, black or brown for $15.40 (MSRP $77).
Via Spiga Taunt in brown, white or black for $19.80 (MSRP $99).
Jeffrey Campbell Anne in red, black or purple for $18.60 (MSRP $93).
