Spring Shoes in Pastels: Nine West Topshoe Mary Jane peep toe pumps

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

I’ve been admiring the Nine West Topshoe lately for all of the pretty pastel shades it’s offered in.  Pastels, of course, are very on-trend this spring and when combined with this striking Mary Jane silhouette and contrasting heel and strap, it’s hard not to love this style.  But, if I were to buy it, what would be hard is picking out a favorite hue.  I mean, there’s the pastel green you see above, which is particularly lovely since mint shades have been hot this season, but then there’s also this gorgeous sky blue version (I have a bit of a weakness for this color):

Or a pretty in pink option:

Or a splash of yellow, never a bad thing:

Then again, one could nix the pastels and go with the versatility of black and white, a color combo that’s always hard to resist:

If you’re feeling much more decisive than me about one of these options, you’ll be glad to know about some sales and discounts available.  Nine West has just marked them down from $89 to $69 and they also have free shipping.  Nine West doesn’t have the black and white pair, but Macys has them for $89 and you can get 25% off with coupon code FRIENDS until 4/30/12.  If you need more size options (many are sold out at Nine West), you can also find all of the shades except yellow at Endless for $89.  If you spend over $100 on eligible styles, including this one, you can get 20% off your order using coupon code MOTHER20 through 5/13/12.  Zappos has yellow, blue, and black/white for $89 with free shipping.

Which shade is your fave?

Easter shoes & fun this weekend

Monday, April 9th, 2012

I had a really nice time with my family for Easter this weekend.  On Saturday, my mom, sister, and I went shopping with the goal of outfitting our sweet little girls (my two daughters and niece) in pretty little Easter dresses and shoes, which is always a fun time.  We decided to go to Shoe Carnival to check out the kids shoes since we knew they were having a BOGO sale.  I didn’t really intend to buy myself anything since I was focused on dressing up my girls; however, temptation won out when I spotted the Soda Terani wedges you see me wearing above.  I first saw these online at Tillys last week and really liked them, so when I saw them in person and still felt the same after trying them on, I couldn’t leave them there.

The pink and yellow shades looked very Easter to me, like colors found on dyed eggs or candy, and I added an extra element of colorblocking via sky blue toes.  These shoes are very high, but despite the towering 5.5″ heel, they are surprisingly comfortable.  I found that going half a size up felt better to me when I tried them on in the store, so that’s what I opted to do, although it wasn’t totally necessary.  It just gave me a little extra wiggle room around the front strap area since I have a wider foot.  At $30, these were quite a bargain and they definitely look like they could be higher in price to me (they are even lower online at $24.98).  Plus, since there was a BOGO sale, I scooped up another cute pair for just $12 more (you can see those at the end of the post).  Color me happy. Update: These are also now available at LuLus for $29.

Here are some more pics from our family Easter get-together that I wanted to share:

My daughter had to have these sparkly flats when she saw them.  Yes, she appears to already be taking after me when it comes to shoes!  These are from a brand called Innocence, but I couldn’t locate them online.

This is the beautiful view behind my parent’s house and we enjoyed it while grilling out and egg hunting in the backyard.

My sister got these cute white strappy wedges for her Easter shoes, the Solanz Beezus.  These were $40 in the store, but are on sale for $29.98 online at Shoe Carnival.

My parents always know how to make things special when they have us over for holidays.  The food was amazing and I love my mom’s beautiful table arrangement and deviled egg chicks!

My sweet little niece wore Born flower shoes, similar to the Born Little Flower or Born Dahlia.

This is the other pair I bought, the Y-Not Sure-S in teal.  These wedges were on sale for $24.98 in the store and the price is the same online.  I got them for around $12.50 because of the BOGO offer.

Trying out a bit of pattern mixing with floral and striped denim.

I hope everyone had a happy Easter weekend as well!

Spring shoes that POP in neon

Friday, April 6th, 2012

With all of the bold color we’re seeing this season (which I was just discussing in my multicolor shoes post), it makes perfect sense that neon has once again emerged as a trend for spring and summer.  If you’re a lover of these ultra-bright hues, it’s not that you have to wait for them to be deemed trendy to wear them, but it does mean there are a lot more options to pick from.  And since neon packs a serious punch, a little goes a long way for making a bold statement; thus, wearing a pop of neon with your shoes is a particularly ideal way to apply the trend with ease.  I personally like the look of shoes in neutral shades, like taupe, combined with just enough neon to amp things up, like what you see with the Enzo Angiolini Timga pictured above.  It’s available for $120 at Endless and there’s also a neon pink version with a dark natural upper.  Here are some more of my current faves in fluorescent shades:

Vince Camuto Deric with bright yellow heel for $115 with free shipping at Amazon. Also available at Dillards.

Jessica Simpson Shavon colorblock heels with neon pink for $97.95 with free shipping at OnlineShoes.  Get $20 off $90, which drops the price on these to $77.95, using coupon code 20BLOOM through 4/30/12.

Ann Taylor Cheri in Caliente Coral for $178 at Ann Taylor.  Get 30% off with coupon code SPRING30 (expiration unknown).

Steve Madden Aaria in neon yellow on preorder for $149.95 at Steve Madden.  Coupon code MUSTHAVE25 takes 25% off $150 and gives free shipping through 4/10/12.  A pink version is also available.

Qupid Neutral neon green heels for $26.99 at Tilly’s.

Charlotte Russe neon wedge in pink or yellow on sale for $25 at Charlotte Russe.

Pour La Victoire Taryn in neon yellow for $189.99 with free shipping at Piperlime or $265 with free shipping at Endless.  It also comes in neon pink.

Fergie Protest in green for $69.95 with free shipping at Zappos.  It also comes in pink, yellow, and more color options.

Charlotte Russe neon orange heels for $30 at Charlotte Russe.  These shoes are eligible for their Buy 1, get 2nd for $12.50 promotion, as are these cute neon flats they offer.

Sole Boutique Posh Dynamo neon flats with spikes for $33 at Karmaloop.  They also come in neon yellow for $46. Update: Also available at Urban Originals for $33.50.

Have a fun weekend and a wonderful Easter!

Bloomingdales Shoe Sale & Coupon: Discounts on Sam Edelman Lorissa, Aqua Moxie & more

Friday, February 24th, 2012

Bloomingdales has a Fashionable Fundraiser sale going on right now and, of course, I had to check out all of the women’s shoes they have on discount for 20-40% off – and, let me tell you, there are plenty that I’d like to call my own.  One such pair is the Aqua Moxie strappy sandal pictured above, which is exclusive to Bloomingdales.  I’m loving this soft pink and glitter combo and there’s definitely a Miu Miu-esque vibe going on here, but the price is actually quite nice as well.  Normally $110, they are marked down to $77 and coupon code FASHION12 takes another 15% off to drop the price to $65.45.  Or, the code will give you 20% off your order if it’s $300 or more and you pay with a Bloomingdales card.  Note: There is also a black and gold version, but it’s sold out in most sizes.

Here are some more discount possibilities:

 

The Sam Edelman Lorissa in fresh new shades – aqua, yellow and bright silver for $200 – plus existing fave PINK for $225 – all get a 15% discount via the coupon code.

The Sam Edelman Novato in this cool colorblock version is priced at $100 and falls to $85 after the code.

The Enzo Angiolini Timga is available in muted pastels…

…or a bold pop of neon.  These are $120 and drop to $102 after coupon.  A purple and black version is also available.

There are plenty of more covetable shoe options available, so be sure to check it out.  The sale and coupon both expire 2/26/12 and shipping is free if you spend over $150.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Yellow shoes Haley wore on American Idol results show + Lea Michele at Coachella

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

I thought Haley Reinhart did an amazing job this week on American Idol with her rendition of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” and, although she did briefly end up in the bottom three on the 4/21/11 results show, she definitely looked cheerful and bright in her trendy colorblock look.  Haley wore an eclectic color combination consisting of a green skirt, an orange top and bright yellow heels (not to mention a gorgeous necklace).  I found these shoes, which look like a match for the style she wore:

I originally saw the Velvet Angels La Loco in “Sun” at Endless, where they are $294.95 with free 2-day shipping, but the tan/black version is priced lower at $162.22.  Then I found out that 6pm has the yellow pair on supersale for only $112.50 and shipping is also free!  Sweet!  The free shipping offer requires an order of $100 or more and ends 4/24/11.

Speaking of yellow shoes, we saw another notable pair in action on Glee’s Lea Michele.  She attended Coachella recently and E! Online reports that she may have been a bit of a mean girl at the event.  I don’t know what happened there, but I do know she had some cute shoes on.  Like Haley, she incorporated plenty of color with her playful orange and pink jumper paired with yellow wedge shoes.

I recognized her shoes as the Aldo Dyle (mentioned before here) and they are available for $100 at Aldo.  Coupon code 342725694 takes another 10% off for a limited time, making them $90.

Have a great weekend and a wonderful Easter!

Bling for Spring: Naughty Monkey Shinner & Hollywood

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

I was just talking about red gingham heels from Naughty Monkey in one of my recent posts, but I had to bring up the brand again today because I’m just loving some of their cute new shoes for spring.  I find that Naughty Monkey always offers fun, playful shoes at affordable price points and, in particular, I’m crushing on the shoes that have the sparkle factor built right in, like the Naughty Monkey Shinner.  The teal and yellow versions give that bright burst of color we crave this time of year, plus they have a mesh, mirrored ankle wrap to add an extra dose of shine.  But, if you’d rather stick with a more neutral color palette for increased versatility, you can also find them in black and grey:

You can find the Naughty Monkey Shinner in grey or black on discount at Shoes.com.  Both are priced at $89 with free shipping, but 20% off coupon code BFF takes your total down to $71.20 (exp 4/30/11).  You can find the teal and yellow pairs, along with grey and black, at Endless or Zappos for $85 with free shipping.

Want more sparkle?  Be sure to check out the Naughty Monkey Hollywood, which has a wedge heel covered in sequins.  I like the silver pair pictured above, which is available at Zappos for $74.99 with free shipping, along with gold, black or navy.  Shoes.com has the navy version for $79 and the coupon listed above drops them to $63.20.  Note that all prices are subject to change.

Shoes with a pop of color for colorblocking trend

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

 

We’ve been checking out both neutral shoes and multicolored shoes, but there’s another breed of footwear that combines elements of both.  These shoes have a primarily neutral palette, in shades like taupe, black, white or gray, but then there’s some portion of the shoe that is played up with a nice shot of color.  I love the overall effect this provides and, although there are many ways to wear these shoes, I find it particularly relevant for the colorblocking trend we’re seeing for spring (as noted on Stylelist).  If you’re experimenting with this trend by combining various contrasting color combinations in your clothing, you might opt to incorporate just a touch of one of those shades in your shoes to bring it all together.  Or, if you’re hesitant to try colorblocking with your clothes, some of these shoes have more than one hue, meaning the trend is already built-in and ready to go with any look you choose.   I’m loving the Pelle Moda Franky (above) with a pop of bright orange, which can be found for $162 with free shipping at Lori’s Shoes or for $180 with free shipping at Shopbop.  Here are some more options, in both warm and cool shades:

Aldo Dyle rubber sole wedge with a pop of yellow for $100 at Aldo.  Coupon code 310687728 takes 10% off, making them $90 (exp 4/1/11).  Note: If you’re obsessed with those Prada rubber sole wedges (like the $695 Prada Mary Jane Wedge) but can’t shell out the big bucks for them, this is a nice alternative for much less.

Aldo Heister platform sandals with a pop of orange or yellow for $100 at Aldo.com.  Coupon code 310687728 takes 10% off, making them $90 (exp 4/1/11).

Nine West Stylin colorblock sandals in dark pink and orange for $89 at Nine West (ships 4/26).  Shipping is also free for a limited time.

Fergie Bold heels with a pop of yellow for $99 with free shipping from Shoes.com.  Get 20% off your order, making these $79.20, with coupon code SECRET20 (exp 3/31/11).

Madison Harding Casey wedge with a pop of yellow for $235 with free shipping from Piperlime.

Jeffrey Campbell San Diego colorblock sandals in orange and yellow for $135 at Nasty Gal.

Topshop Luminate sandals with a pop of pink for $145 with free shipping at Topshop.

Steve Madden Bellahh heels with a pop of coral on preorder for $129.95 at Steve Madden.  Get free shipping by applying SMFREESHIP at checkout.

Nine West Braxton for $99.95 at Nordstrom with free shipping via coupon code SHOES (exp 4/14/11) or for $99 with free shipping at Nine West.  This pair is also available in a yellow/orange/red combo.

Aldo Dyle again, this time in green, for $100 at Aldo.com.  Coupon code 310687728 takes 10% off, making them $90 (exp 4/1/11).

N.Y.L.A. Daron in turquoise for $84.95 at DSW.  DSW Rewards members can apply GETFAVES at checkout for $15 off $74, $30 off $149 or $50 off $199 (exp 4/4/11).  That makes this pair $69.95.
