Spring shoe trends 2011: Orange shoes

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for things to heat up for spring.  Although it’s still plenty cold outside and will be for quite awhile, I find that just looking at something sizzling hot can help conjure up a feeling of warmth, even if only for a brief minute.  That’s why I’m talking about a fiery new color trend for spring today: orange shoes.  I’ve been noticing a lot of orange around lately, most notably on Drew Barrymore in Jil Sander at a recent Cover Girl party and all over the runways, as seen on SheFinds and The Fashion Spot.  I’ve always loved orange because it’s such a warm hue and, in it’s brightest form, made for super-high visibility.  It also sets off a tan very well, which is always a plus (if you have a tan, that is).  But, generally speaking, it’s probably one of the more under-used colors in fashion, especially for footwear.  If you want to apply this trend to your shoes, which is is a nice way to add a pop of color in this shade without running the risk of orange overload, you might try one of these pairs:

Nine West Playtag for $79 at Nine West.

Charles David Primp for $230 at Endless.

Mojo Moxy Bollywood for $89.95 at Endless.

Seychelles Gypsy for $54.90 at Endless.

Two Lips Ignite for $99.95 at Endless.

Anne Klein Marcella for $39.99 at Shoe Woo with an extra 50% off at checkout (limited sizes, all sales are final).

Update: Here’s another cute orange pair, the Fergie Quilla for $89 with free shipping at Shoes.com.  Coupon code VISA takes 20% off regularly-priced items, making them $71.20 (exp. 6/30/11, may require Visa payment).

Shoe Woo Final Clearance Sale: Extra 50-80% off shoes & boots at checkout

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

It’s January and ’tis the season for serious shoe bargains while stores clear inventory to make way for spring, so we’re sure to see plenty of steep discounts going on throughout the month (always a good thing for our shoe shopping tendencies).  But, when it comes to sales, there are those that leave you a bit underwhelmed with the prices and then there are those with red-hot, OMG type discounts.  That’s what’s I’m seeing right now over at Shoe Woo, a site that sells Jones Apparel Group shoe brands like Nine West, Rachel Rachel Roy, Enzo Angiolini, Bandolino, Anne Klein and more.  The bad news – for those who shop there – is that the website is closing (store locations will remain open).  The good news?  As a result, they are having a “Crazy Clearance” sale with some drastically reduced prices on their selection of shoes and boots, which get an extra 50-80% off at checkout.  For instance, the Enzo Angiolini Nate boot (pictured above), which has a cuff you can wear up or down, is normally $250 and gets an additional 80% off in-cart for a price of just $50 in black or brown.  Here are some additional styles you might want to check out:

The Nine West Paoletta in black is marked down from $89 to $34.99 and gets another 50% off at checkout, making it $17.49.  A leopard version is also available (almost sold out) for $49.99 and $24.99 in-cart.

The Bandolino Indulge in grey suede, black suede or black leather is $109 and reduced to $21.80 after an 80% off in-cart discount.

The Rachel Roy Wava boot in plaid or black is marked down from $159 to $111.30 and gets another 60% off at checkout, making it $44.52.

The Enzo Angiolini Maiden in black is $99 and gets 70% off in-cart, making it $29.70.

The Joan & David Beesly in black or grey/black is $325 and gets 70% off at checkout, which reduces the price to $97.50.

The Enzo Angiolini Kaiser in taupe or black is $120 and 80% off is taken at checkout, dropping the price to $24.

There are plenty of more shoes and boots to choose from, so be sure to check it out!

Note that each shoe is marked with its eligible discount and all sales are final.  Shipping adds a flat $5 to your order.

Update: I noticed that some of the prices listed here have changed since this was originally posted, so be sure to double-check the current pricing if you plan to make a purchase.

SOS: Clear heels, feather heels & more shoes on BOGO at Nine West

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

I love a shoe sale where you can stack discount upon discount, for obvious reasons, and that’s just what we’re seeing over at Nine West.  They’ve had an ongoing sale that takes 30% or 50% off select specially-marked shoes and boots, but they’ve upped the ante even more today by offering 50% off your second pair.  That’s a lot of savings, particularly on shoes that are already on sale and eligible for the extra 30% or 50% off at checkout and eligible for the BOGO savings when you buy two, plus shipping is free.  It may all sound a bit complicated but, no worries, all you have to do is add you favorite styles to your cart and it’s all calculated automatically for you at checkout.  Plus, I’ve worked up a couple scenerios to demonstrate the potential savings on some shoes that caught my eye.  Let’s check it out:

For a super-low priced option that’s also super-cute, try the Nine West Masqurede, which is on sale for $39.99 (retail $69) and eligible for another 30% off at checkout.  That makes it $27.99 and it also comes in solid black and leopard patent.

Add the Nine West Bonfire to your order, which is on sale for $49.99 (retail $89) and also eligible for 30% off – making it $34.99 – and the Masquerade drops to just $13.99.  That means you’ll get two classically versatile peep toe pumps in your closet for $48.98 shipped.  That’s not bad at all, but you might want to try something even more trendy.  Here’s another scenerio:

The Nine West Zizzi has the same classic peep toe pump silhouette as the shoes above, but it grabbed my attention because of its clear upper with sparkle detail.  Clear shoes have been around forever – think jellies and those huge clear platform heels that are mostly associated with dancers (of the exotic variety, that is) – but we’ve also seen a lot of high-end designers like Fendi, Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo and Prada experiment with materials like PVC and lucite.  It can definitely be hit or miss, but I think in many cases the desired effect is to make the foot look as bare as possible, like it’s just covered in sparkles.  We haven’t seen many moderately-priced options to get this effect (for example, the Jimmy Choo Niagra is a whopping $2,495), but the Nine West Zizzi looks like clear done right to me, plus it’s affordable at $79.

I also had to take note of the Nine West Blondie heels because shoes with feather detail aren’t exactly the easiest thing to come across.  There was definitely a lot of interest in those red feather Louboutin heels seen on Kim from Bravo’s The Real Housewives, but it’s not something everyone can spend big bucks on to try out.  These shoes are on sale for $59.99 (retail $89) and also come in black or green.  You get another 30% off at checkout, which drops them to $41.99.  Add the Zizzi clear heels to your cart and you can snag them for just $20.99.  The price for both is $99.99 shipped.

There are plenty more cute shoes to choose from at great prices, but you’ll have to shake a tail feather.  The BOGO sale ends today, 12/15/10.

Cheap-A-Thon: Cute shoes under $25

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

We haven’t seen our friend Cheap Chick in awhile, but she decided to pop out of her shell today in the name of cute shoes that won’t break the bank.  If you’ve been to this site before, you know that Cheap Chick is the resident bargain-hunting birdie at this shoe blog and her sole mission is to find shoes under $25.  Sure, she looks pretty tame, but be warned: she gets downright predatory when it comes to low-priced shoes, especially brand name pairs that normally cost much more.  Here’s what she hunted down today:

Smartbargains is having a Shoe-A-Thon, which works out quite well for this Cheap-A-Thon because they have a selection of nearly 50 shoes from brands like Fergie, Carlos Santana, Franco Sarto, Matisse and Harajuku Lovers marked down to just $19.  Sizes and color options are limited for some styles, but I like the Harajuku Lovers Kalista pictured above.  It’s still available in a wide selection of sizes and comes in silver, black or brown (color availability depends on size selected, some are sold out).  The sale ends 8/14/10.

6pm has the Madden Girl Maci in black with zipper accents marked down to $24.95 (MSRP $54.95).

6pm also has the Not Rated Beadster wedge in tan for $23.99 (MSRP $39.99).  It comes in black as well, but it’s almost sold out.

Shoemall has the Yellow Box Biloxi flip flop marked down to $29.99 (originally $37.95) and coupon code BK2SCHOOL takes 20% off until 8/17/10 and that reduces them to $23.99 with free shipping.  The similar Yellow Box Fusion is marked down to $23.99 and the coupon drops them to $19.19.

Also at Shoemall, the Avia A5020W running shoe is marked down from $44.95 to $28.99. The same coupon code listed above will make your total $23.99 with free shipping.

Victoria’s Secret has the Colin Stuart Patent Platform Sandal marked down from $58 to $24.99.  It looks like gold and black are the only colors available at this point depending on the size selected.  Use coupon code FREEVSSHIP for free shipping on 8/12/10 only.

Victoria’s Secret also offers the Colin Stuart Studded Sandal for $24.99, reduced from $75.  It comes in natural, brown or black depending on size selected.  Use the above coupon code for free shipping today only.

6pm has the RSVP Erinn in black, fuchsia, navy or white for $20.25 (MSRP $75).

6pm also has the RSVP Nell with teardrop peep toe in red, black, navy or grey for $23.22 (MSRP $85).

Aeropostale is having their Friends and Family sale that takes 30% off your order when you apply coupon code FFAUG at checkout until 8/15/10.  They have a few flip flops and sneakers in their footwear section, but I like the slippers.  These Aeropostale Striped Rugby Slippers are $14.99 before the code and $10.49 after.  Five other color options are available.

Please note that prices on any of the above shoes can change at any time and availability may be limited.

Martin + Osa Sale: Dolce Vita Ivory for $30, Havaianas for $7, more

Friday, July 9th, 2010

I talked about some coupons that take further discounts on sale and clearance shoes yesterday, but we have another sale on a sale with even bigger total savings to discuss today.  You may know that Martin + Osa, which is owned by American Eagle Outfitters, is closing and they are continuing their Final Sale by taking steeper markdowns on their merchandise than we saw before.  This includes their selection of women’s shoes and it gets even better when you get a whopping extra 50% off your order automatically at checkout.  The selection of shoes is certainly getting limited at this point, but there’s still some great deals to be had.  Case in point: The Dolce Vita Ivory flat sandal in pewter (pictured above) is marked down from $130 to $59.95, but drops to just $29.98 at checkout.  I checked around and other stores that carry it still have it listed in the $125-ish range, so it’s definitely a bargain.  You can also get Havaianas Slims and other flip flops for $7.48 after discount, plus more styles from brands like Dolce Vita, Schu, Rough Justice and Dulce at super-low prices (none are over $30 after the savings).  Note that all sales are final and shipping adds $7.  The expiration, if any, is unknown.

Update: The sale expires 7/28/10 when the store will be closing its doors.

4th of July Shoe Sales

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

*Update: This post is from 2010.  Check out 2011 4th of July shoe sales*

It’s 4th of July weekend and time for plenty of fun, but it’s also a great opportunity to save some dough all-American style, especially right now while we’re starting to see big markdowns on summer merchandise.  Independence Day sales are literally everywhere and there are definitely some great shoe sales that have already started, so I thought I would round them up into one big list for anyone who might be shoe shopping this weekend.  I’ll also be updating this list over the next few days anytime I come across more sales and coupons.  So, without further adieu, here’s the rundown of what I’ve seen so far:

American Eagle is having one of their awesome clearance sales right now that also applies to their selection of clearance shoes.  You get an extra 30% off automatically at checkout for a limited time, but then you can also apply coupon code 32944527 to get another 20% off (expiration unknown).  That makes for some super-low prices on their selection of flats, flat sandals and sneakers, like the AE Grommet Sandal (pictured above) that’s on sale for $19.95 and drops to just $11.17 after the code.  Availability can be limited for some styles, so it’s best to shop by size in the top right to narrow it down.  Shipping adds $7, but it’s free if you buy 3 or more items until 7/5/10.

Guess.com is also having a sale on a sale and it takes an additional 50% off already-reduced items.  Browse their women’s sale shoes and, if you see something you like, you’ll see the price slashed in half at checkout.  I like the femininity exuding from the Guess Journ, which features eyelet cutouts and a corset-like lace-up detail on the back.  It’s available for $89.99 in black or white, but the price is reduced to $45 after the discount.  If you spend $100, get free shipping with coupon code FREESHIP100 for a limited time.  The sale expiration is unknown, but it’s likely for the upcoming holiday weekend only.

If you’ve got your mind set on a pair of Chinese Laundry shoes for less, shop Chineselaundry.com and get 30% off any sale shoes when you apply coupon code CL30SALE at checkout.  Make a dramatic statement in the Chinese Laundry Slippery Slope, which has a mix of exotic patterns.  They’re marked down to $69.99 (regularly $119) in black or brown and, after the code, they’ll be yours for $48.99.  The code expires 7/12/10.

80’s Purple offers cutting edge shoe brands like 80%20, Dolce Vita, Industry, Report and more and you can get an additional 25% off your purchase with coupon code fireworks during their Red, White & Purple Sale.  The Dolce Vita Niko wedge in black or brown is priced at $172, but it falls to $129 after the code.  The sale expires 7/5/10.

Shoemall is having a Fourth of July shoe sale and it takes 20% off your purchase via code JULY4.  It applies to regularly-priced items only and shipping is also free.  If you’ve had a gold glitter pump on the brain since Sex and the City 2, you might like the Steve Madden Caryssa platform pump.  It’s $129.95 before the code and $103.96 after.  The coupon expires 7/6/10.

Steve Madden is taking 40% off clearance shoes when you apply coupon code 40CLEARANCE at checkout.  Get a nice price on a clog with plenty of edge, the Steven by Steve Madden Durann, which is so on-trend and marked down from $149.95 to $99.99.  After the coupon, get them for $59.99 in black, brown or red.  The coupon expires 7/11/10.

Koh’s has a new coupon that takes 20% off any purchase, including shoes.  Enter TOPSECRET during checkout to get the discount, which you can even apply to Skechers Shape-Ups (just tested it and it worked).  The Skechers Shape-Ups Action Packed High-Performance Shoes are on sale for $99.99 (originally $109.95), but they are $79.99 after the code, which expires 7/4/10.  Update: This code is now expired, but use code JULYSAVE for 15% off until 7/11/10.

Bloomingdales is having a sale that takes 25% to 40% off select items, including women’s shoes.  On top of that, get another 15% off when you use coupon code SAVE15 in the shopping cart.  I checked it the sale and there’s definitely plenty of low prices going on, but one in particular is the Corso Como Notable studded wedge.  It’s already marked down from $159 to $59.62, but it goes even lower to $50.68 after the coupon, which expires 7/5/10.

More sales & coupons for shoes:

Lord & Taylor: Buy more and save more on select sandals: 30% off one pair, 35% off two and 40% off three.  If the shoes you want don’t qualify for this discount, get 20% off regular, sale and clearance items instead with coupon code JULY4 until 7/5/10.  Some exclusions apply.

Shoebuy: 20% off with coupon code JULY4 and free shipping.

Macy’s: Extra 25% off clearance shoes (prices reflect discount) and free shipping on $99 or more with coupon code FIREWORKS until 7/5/10.

6pm: Select Gabriella Rocha shoes for $19.95 or less and more brand sales.

Aldo: Extra 20% off women’s sale pumps, shoes and boots (excludes sandals).  The discount is already applied to the product price.

That’s all for now, but be sure to check back for more shoes sales for the 4th!

4th of July Shoes: Cute shoes in red, white & blue

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

The Fourth of July is coming up this weekend, which for many of us means the 5 F’s will be in effect: Food, Family, Friends, Fireworks and Fun.  Part of that fun, in my opinion, is going ALL out in the patriotic spirit of Independence Day by wearing traditional red, white and blue.  Of course, you can always opt for shoes in these colors that will have you looking firecracker hot.  One of my favorites is the Charles David Tapestry (pictured above), which is available at Endless for $122.47, marked down from $174.95.  It ships free via overnight shipping, so there’s still time to order before the holiday weekend.  I also found more options that range from casual and fun to dressy and fab that I think are perfect for the day.  All are from Endless and have free overnight or 2-day shipping as noted:

Jessica Simpson Bobcaty in red for $44.21 with free 2-day shipping.

Spring Step Gardenia in red for $52.46 with free 2-day shipping.

Pilar Abril Magnolia for $71.25 with free 2-day shipping.

Pilar Abril Verbena for $54.60 with free 2-day shipping.

Apepazza Topazio for $74.96 with free 2-day shipping.

Nomad Footwear Sparkles flip flop in red and blue for $23.77 with free 2-day shipping.

Poetic Licence Star Gazing in black, pink or grey for $97.95 with free overnight shipping (no red, white or blue, but love the stars).

Naughty Monkey Rain Dance for $70.95 with free overnight shipping.

Have a happy 4th!
