Memorial Day shoes sales & coupons 2011

Friday, May 27th, 2011

If there’s one thing you can be assured of on Memorial Day weekend, it’s that there WILL be sales…and lots of them.  If your holiday activities include a little shoe shopping, you’ll probably want to know which stores are offering the best discounts so you can get your savings on.  That’s why I’ve rounded up a great big list of sales and coupons that’ll knock a nice chunk of change off your shoe purchase, making both your feet and your wallet happy.  Here’s the rundown of what I’ve seen so far:

Pour La Victoire recently launched their own online store and I received word from a company rep that coupon code LAUNCH will take an additional $50 off any order (expiration unknown).  While not specifically for Memorial Day, it’s still a sweet discount on must-haves like the Irina and their selection of bridal shoes.  Shipping is also free.

Aldo takes an additional 30% off women’s sale sandals (discount reflected in product price), but you can also apply coupon code GLAMOUR to get another 15% off at checkout.

Endless offers an extra 20% off select women’s shoes.  The discount is applied at checkout for all eligible items.

American Eagle takes another 30% off and applies free shipping when you apply coupon code 82934281 at checkout.  Use the code on their regularly-priced footwear or save even more on clearance shoes.

Macy’s reduces the prices on clearance shoes by 25% (prices reflect discount) and you also get another 10% off at checkout.  Items eligible for the extra discount are marked.

Bloomingdales is having a Big Brown Bag Sale that takes 25-40% off select styles and coupon code BIGSALE takes another 20% off these sale items.

Reebok takes another 40% off sale items when you apply coupon code SALE40 at checkout.

Payless has you paying less with 20% off coupon 47010 at checkout.

Teresa Giudice shoes on Watch What Happens Live: Black heels with sparkling platform

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Teresa and Jacqueline from Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New Jersey made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on 5/23/11 to dish on the latest gossip from the new season with Andy Cohen.  Both ladies looked extra glam on the show, but it was Teresa’s black heels with sparkly platform that, in particular, generated a lot of interest amongst viewers.  I posted some info on my Facebook page yesterday after receiving some requests for info on these shoes, but I’m still seeing more people searching for them, so I thought I would add something here as well.  Teresa’s rhinestone pumps are custom made from a company called The Dazzle Diva and you can see them here:

The Dazzle Diva takes a pair of satin Steve Madden slingbacks and completely blings out the platform and heel in “thousands” of genuine Swarovski crystals.  They’re a bit pricey at $399, but that generally comes with the territory if you prefer Swarovski over regular rhinstones (the differences between the two are discussed on the site here).  They also come in champagne, another gorgeous choice.

If you can’t shell out $399 for these, a few less expensive options include the Menbur Narya in black, the Guess Hondola 2 in black with silver glitter platform, the Lauren Jones Zandra in black and the Beverly Feldman Glitz N Glam in black, each from Endless with free shipping.

N.Y.L.A. Genevieve, a Christian Louboutin spike bow heels lookalike

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

I recently posted about a Christian Louboutin Clou Noeud knockoff in black from Frederick’s of Hollywood and I noted that the shoe looked just like a sold-out style Nordstrom had offered a few months prior, the N.Y.L.A. Genevieve.  Well, I found that the Genevieve is back in action at Nordstrom and it’s now available in a hot new crimson shade.  I’m all about this bright red version, which could also be compared to the Christian Louboutin Lady Clou, another spike studded shoe from CL that came in red.  More good news: If you totally coveted the nude Clou Noeud when it was out, you’ll definitely want to check out this version:

The N.Y.L.A. Genevieve is also back in stock in nude, as well as black, each for $104.95 at Nordstrom.  However, if you prefer the black pair, it’s worth noting that you’ll save more by getting the Frederick’s of Hollywood version for $94 and they’ll give you another $10 off automatically at checkout, making the price $84.  The offer expires 5/29/11.  Update: Frederick’s of Hollywood marked this style down to $79.99 and you get another $10 off at checkout through 6/19/11, making them $69.99.

Update 2: Another knockoff, the Privileged Sheena, is available at LuLu’s and it’s in pale pink!!  Also in black, each for $55.

Haley Reinhart sparkly shoes on American Idol Top 3

Friday, May 20th, 2011

I received an email request to help identify the sparkling silver peep toe platform heels Haley wore on the American Idol Top 3 show on 5/18/11.  First, I must say, I was really sorry to see Haley get voted off this week because that girl has some killer pipes and great style to boot.  I’m sure she has a bright music career ahead of her though — shiny and bright like the shoes she wore in one of her looks from the Top 3 show (pictured above).  Haley donned a pair of sparkle pumps for her performance of the Fleetwood Mac song “Rhiannon” and, while these shoes do appear to have a dark silver uppper, possibly in glitter, I’m thinking that this black sequin pair is likely the one she wore:

This is the Guess Hondola 2, which is a style that has been released in several color options and has the same side cutouts, side buckle and black platform as Haley’s shoes.  And, as you can see in the stock photo, the sequins appear to reflect in silver and this effect is likely magnified under those bright American Idol lights, which might be why it appears to be more of a pewter color on the show.  Of course, it’s also possible that there is (or will be) a dark silver version of this pair, but I don’t see it available in this color right now.

You can find this shoe for $99 with free overnight shipping at Endless.  If you’d rather get your sparkle on in a different color, this pair also comes in blue sequins, gold glitter, silver sequins and a black glitter version with silver glitter platform, each for the same price (some options have free 2-day shipping rather than overnight).

Have a great weekend!

Update 5/23/11:  I also received some questions about Haley’s white platform shoes worn on the Top 3 results show.  After doing some digging, I found out that the shoes (pictured above) are custom designed by a shoe designer who goes by Ms. Misha on Twitter (@4MiShA).  I’m glad to be able to see these shoes up close and, wow, they are gorgeous!  If you want to find out more information, there is an email address listed on her Twitter page where you can contact her.

Hot shoes in cool shades of light & aqua blue

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

Lately I’ve really been crushing on shoes in various shades of light blue.  I’ve always loved the lighter side of blue, but these shades haven’t been too terribly common when it comes to footwear.  That’s why I’ve been happy to see more and more styles available in gorgeous shades of soft blue that range from pale baby hues to bolder aqua pastels.  These are colors that generally have a cool, calming effect when you look at them, much like gazing at a clear sky or tropical ocean might do, and they tend to convey a fresh, clean look.  One fine speciman is the Jeffrey Campbell Garett, available at Envishoes for $144.95, which combines aqua suede and a Valentino-esque bow with dark blue and light green accents.  This is one of my favorites, but there are definitely more to consider, so let’s it check out:

Aldo Frankenberg sandals with a crisp pop of blue for $110 at

Rachel Roy Zahira in light blue for $119 at

Pour La Victoire Irina in aqua for $179.99 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.

Sole Boutique Mamie for $70 at Karmaloop.

Jeffrey Campbell Shy Town for $148 at Lori’s Shoes.

Jeffrey Campbell Tick in light blue for $180 at Karmaloop.

I’m loving all of the above, but if you really want to make a statement with aqua blue, you mix it with fiery shades of pink and orange à la the Jeffrey Campbell Munroe.  With its unabashedly bright color palette and extra-bold styling (love the two-toned platform!), this shoe definitely has the makings of a quintessential fun summer shoe.  Find them at Lori’s Shoes for $140 or at Envishoes for $144.95.

Note: To get a discount on Karmaloop orders, use coupon code SAVE20 to get 20% off $100 and free shipping (first time users only) or try ROCKIT for 15% off $75 (expiration unknown).  For Aldo orders, use 349147751 to get 10% off (expiration unknown).

Heel-less shoes knockoffs: Lady Gaga shoe style for less

Monday, May 16th, 2011

[Note: Many of the styles originally posted here are now sold out, so I will be marking those as sold out when I see that they are no longer available and updating with new heel-less styles at the end of the post.]

If you’ve ever wanted to know what it’s really like to walk in Lady Gaga’s shoes, now is your chance.  The megastar is known for wearing extreme footwear like shoes made of meat and those risque American Idol shoes, but she seems to have a special preference for gravity-defying heel-less shoes.  We’ve seen heel-less shoes before on Victoria Beckham, who wore Antonio Berardi during an appearance in 2008, and we saw them on the Nina Ricci runway in 2009, but Lady Gaga’s heel-less shoe designer of choice is Noritaka Tatehana from Japan.  When asked about his newfound notoriety from Gaga wearing his shoes, Tatehana says “The hardest part is getting all of these emails from 15 year-old Lady Gaga fans. They tell me they love my shoes but can’t afford them, so they ask me to just send them a pair. I don’t know what to say to them.”  Well, fear not — now there’s a much less expensive option for anyone who dares to wear these:

Sole Boutique Saffo Night Walker [sold out] for $120 at Karmaloop.

Sole Boutique The Mather Night Walker [sold out] for $130 at Karmaloop.  Also available in black patent.

Sole Boutique The Cora Night Walker [sold out] in red zebra for $130 at Karmaloop.

I think it’s probably good that the bottom part of these shoes extends a bit further back, which I imagine would increase the stability — a bit like training wheels.  Hey, even a trained professional like Gaga is known to fall from time to time.

If you’re a brave soul who must own a pair of these, you might want to act fast.  There was another heel-less shoe knockoff in leopard (Magic Leopard Platform Heels) available at NastyGal last month and it sold out very quickly.  And you might want to save a little money too, right?  Use coupon code SAVE20 to get 20% off $100 and free shipping (first time users only) or try ROCKIT for 15% off (expiration unknown).

Updates: Another heel-less option is the Jeffrey Campbell Night Walk, available for $169.95 at Envishoes [sold out].  Update: Urban Outfitters has this style for $199.  Solestruck has the Night Walk in a wide assortment of color options for $169.95. Karmalooop has various color options starting at $168.

I definitely had to add the Jeffrey Campbell Rock Star, which is $179.95 at [sold out in most sizes].  Also available at Solestruck for $194.95 [sold out] and Karmaloop for $204.

More heel-less wonders from Sole Boutique, the Cora Night Walker in Leopard [sold out] or Zebra (check the leopard sole on the zebra pair!).  Both are available at Karmaloop for $130.

The Jeffrey Campbell Str8up for $160 at Karmaloop.

Jeffrey Campbell Prickly in pink for $226 at Karmaloop [sold out].

Jeffrey Campbell Prickly in beige for $219.90 at Akira.

Jeffrey Campbell Corleone in red for $175 at Nasty Gal.  Also available at Karmaloop in red or black for $198.

Jeffrey Campbell Night Nail for $175 at Nasty Gal.

Jeffrey Campbell Night Lita in glitter for $194 at Karmaloop.

Jeffrey Campbell Moonwalk for $190 at Karmaloop.

Jeffrey Campbell Contain for $198 at Karmaloop.

Jeffrey Campbell Shadow Stud for $264.95 at Envishoes [sold out].  Also available at Karmaloop for $264.

Black Milk x Jeffrey Campbell Night Lita in Rainbow Galaxy for $249.95 at Solestruck (pre-order).

Sole Boutique Bettie Page Chablis for $150 at Karmaloop.  Also available in pink and gold.

Jeffrey Campbell Vicious-Ex at Lori’s Shoes for $204.95 [sold out] or Envishoes for $214.95.  Karmaloop has it for $228.

Update: 4 colors of the Jeffrey Cambell Vicious are available at Solestruck for $209.95, including this pink and black version [sold out in 2 pink versions].  Nordstrom has the Vicious-N in pink and black for $194.95, but few sizes are left [sold out].  Eilatan has the fuschia / black version and red / zebra in stock.

Privileged Sherman in tan for $85 at  Also available in black.  [sold out]

The Jeffrey Campbell Tick goes heel-less with the Jeffrey Campbell Night Tick, available for $244 at Karmaloop.

Privileged Dexter in teal [sold out] or tan for $58 at Lulus.  Also available in red or black at Karmaloop for $56.

Chinese Laundry Amped Up in red or purple print for $129.95 with free shipping at Chinese Laundry.

Black Milk x Jeffrey Campbell Night Lita in Sick of Men (pictured), Rainbow Galaxy, or Bone Machine patterns on preorder for $249.95 with free shipping at Solestruck.
