Fun Shoes for Friday: Haus of Price Mega Bootie 2

Friday, July 29th, 2011

It’s unabashedly colorful, super-sparkly, and back for Round 2 over at Solestruck — it’s the Haus of Price Mega Bootie 2!  This showstopping pair is much like its predecessor, the fast-selling Mega Bootie, but with a bit of a remix with the cutout heel.  Solestruck has it for $354.95, which is admittedly very pricey for many of us, but you have to consider that these are handmade by James Price and quite exclusive: Solestruck reports on their blog that they will be getting 18 pairs now and 36 for August shipment.  Assuming those are the only ones made, you could be 1 of only 54 in the world to own this style, which means bragging rights are soo included.

Want to see the first Mega Bootie in action for a little inspiration?  Check out the blog Mode Junkie to see how it’s done.

Have a great weekend!

Kate Middleton wedding shoes picture + lace heels for brides

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

When Kate Middleton married Prince William earlier this year, it was a beautiful fairy-tale wedding and I loved her dress, but I have to admit I was disappointed when we couldn’t get a good look at her shoes.  I’m not sure when or how I thought Kate would be able to show us her shoes, given that they were well-concealed under her full-length gown, but I did hope for a better glimpse.  Fast-forward a few months later and my little shoe wish has come true now that Kate’s Alexander McQueen dress, heels, and more items from the royal wedding are on display at a Buckingham Palace exhibition.  The custom lace shoes Kate wore are pictured above and, much like her gown, they are classic and elegant.  They also appear deceptively simple, but all of those tiny little stitches were done by hand and there’s no telling how long they took to make.  In light of Kate’s shoes making an official appearance, I decided to find some lace wedding shoes for those who want a similar look when marrying their own Prince Charming — or for anyone who wants to incorporate the feminine look of lace into their wardrobe.  Let’s take a look:

The Stuart Weitzman Laceswoon has a similar silhouette in ivory lace.  Find these at Zappos on sale for $255.50 with free shipping (retail $365).

BridalShoes.com has the Touch Ups Bobbie in ivory, which is also similar, but costs less at $74.  The Touch Ups Catalina is a peep toe style in lace and it’s priced at $72.  Note that both will be available in August.

My personal lace fave is the Chinese Laundry Hotline, which has bolder styling with the higher platform and bow detail.  You can find these at Endless in ivory or black for $69 with free overnight shipping.  If you spend $80 or more on your order, you’ll get $25 off automatically at checkout for a limited time.  Shoemall has it for $69.95 and if you buy one item, you’ll get 30% off your second with coupon code BOGO through 7/30/11.  Chinese Laundry also has it for $89.95.

Jeffrey Campbell Lita Stud with stars + the Cosmic

Monday, July 25th, 2011

For some reason or another, I have never mentioned the Jeffrey Campbell Lita on this shoe blog, despite its wild popularity that seems to keep going and going.  Perhaps it’s because the Lita is a style that’s been featured on a ton of other blogs, as this article on StyledOn discusses, or maybe it’s because there are so many color options, I tend to get a bit sleepy after going through around 32 of the 45 options listed here (32 out of 45 Litas ain’t bad, though).  Now, I might be exaggerating a little (I totally made those numbers up), but don’t get me wrong.  I definitely don’t dislike the Lita — many people have rocked them like no one’s business and looked hella good doing it.  But, I think I may have been missing something that I didn’t even know I was missing: star studs.  Yes, I’ll admit it, cute little star studs get me almost every time.  Thus, the Jeffrey Campbell Lita Stud shows up here today in all of its celestial glory.  But, make no mistake, the addition of whimsical stars certainly doesn’t detract from its edgy aesthetic.  It’s still got plenty of tough, not to mention the addition of a fold down cuff.  Of course, if you want a more literal interpretation of a starry night sky, you’ll want to go with the totally out-of-this-world scene portrayed on the previously-released Jeffrey Campbell Cosmic:

The Lita with star studs is $264.95 at Solestruck and the Cosmic is $159.95, but low in size options.  For more sizes on the Cosmic Lita, check out Karmaloop, where they are sold for $168.  If you haven’t used coupon code SAVE20 at Karmaloop before, you can get 20% off and free shipping (expiration unknown) and score yourself a coveted Lita discount.

Update 8/16: Wow, I had to add these to the mix because the Lita has gone all-out ferocious now.  Yes, you will be obeyed when wearing these: The Jeffrey Campbell Lita Spike for $194.95 at Envishoes.

Happy Monday!

New fall shoes on sale at Endless + more shoes on discount

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

Endless is one of my go-to online shoe stores for their wide selection and extra-quick shipping options, but I especially love when they have a good sale on top of all of that.  Right now, they are offering a discount of $25 off $80 on select women’s shoes and more items (update: expired), which is pretty good, but it’s even more notable considering that many eligible styles are new arrivals for fall.  That’s a nice way to get an early discount on something fresh and new for the upcoming season, but there’s also some summer styles eligible as well.  With nearly 2,000 shoe options, there’s definitely plenty to choose from, but one that caught my eye is the pretty Poetic Licence Sweet Dreams (pictured above), which has a very delicate and romantic look with it’s sheer dotted lace detail that runs all the way up to the ankle.  It comes in black, champagne, or dark pink for $129 with free overnight shipping, but falls to $104 after the discount, which is applied automatically during the final stage of checkout.  Here are a couple of more options I found:

The Not Rated Short Stack is another pair from the Not Rated brand with a studded wedge heel very similar to the Jeffrey Campbell Tick.  It comes in white (pictured), black, grey, tan, or yellow for $84.95 with free overnight shipping.  After the discount, you can get them for $59.95.

This pair stood out because of it’s cool black and white giraffe pattern and it’s sweet little price tag for a statement-making fall boot.  Get a little wild in the Michael Antonio Melati, which is $95 before the discount and $70 after.  Free overnight shipping is included and it also comes in an all black version.

I then spotted a nice price on the Sam Edelman Lorissa in Truffle.  It’s marked down to $114.71 and falls to under $100 after the discount – $89.71 with free 2-day shipping to be exact.  There are more options available at various price points depending on the color selected.

For many more, check out all of the shoes on sale.  The $25 discount is available for a limited time (expiration unknown, but the discount will show on the product page if available) and all prices are subject to change.

Update: The $25 off $80 promo listed in this post is now expired.

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Cheap Chick is in da house today, which is great news for shoe lovers on a tight budget….or anyone who gets a thrill out of a seriously good bargain.  If you don’t know, this little birdie loves to hunt for shoes that are on major discount and she makes it her mission to scour the web looking for hidden gems in the sale and clearance sections.  To up the ante, she only finds shoes that are marked down to super-low prices — i.e. $25 or less — but are still way high on style.  Let’s take a look at what Cheap Chick found today:

Fun Shoes for Friday: Nine West Grase

Friday, July 15th, 2011

Thank goodness it’s Friday!  And thank goodness for this gorgeous red heel, which might just have you feeling compelled to walk away from people more often.  But, no worries — it’s all in the name of showing off the stunning view from the back.  Here’s the front view:

The Nine West Grase takes a closed toe, red satin pump and totally ups the glam factor with the rhinestone and sequin detail.  I’m loving this red version most of all, but it also comes in black satin, black suede, light grey suede, or tan suede, each with clear rhinestones rather than the colored ones on the red pair.  Get them on pre-order at Nine West for $109 with an expected ship date of 7/26/11.  You’ll also see another $10 off $50 automatically at checkout, making them $99, and free shipping for a limited time.

Jeffrey Campbell El Carmen in pink and red polka dot + yellow gingham

Monday, July 11th, 2011

The Jeffrey Campbell El Carmen is one of those styles that’s been released in several color/pattern options, but this playful polka dot version in pink and red is my personal favorite (although the blue/fuschia combo comes in at a close second).  That’s why it’s totally bittersweet to see it back in stock at Solestruck after it sold out the first time.  Sweet because it’s available for purchase, but bitter because I have so many extra things to pay for at the moment, I won’t be able to spare $119.95 to snag them!!  Gargh.  If this color combo isn’t your cup of tea, you must check out the super-cute new yellow gingham version:

With such a pretty print for light summer days — this one just might become my new fave.  There’s also a classic red gingham option available.

You can check out the Jeffrey Campbell El Carmen at Solestruck, where several variations of this platform sandal are offered for $119.95 each with free shipping.  Note that the blue/fuschia one is sold out.
