Multicolor shoes for going super-bright this spring

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

*Update: This post is from 2011.  See my latest multicolor shoes posts for more*

If there’s one thing I love about spring, it’s the emergence of color.  Applying color to our look is more of a year-round style staple than a trend, but we do tend to see more bold hues being used in fashion when things heat up outside.  When it comes to shoes, you can always add a pop of color in one shade at a time, which works very well, but you can also opt for a wide array of color all in one pair.  Many designers are mixing it up in this way, as seen on Neiman Marcus and these are shoes that, by their very nature, are cheerful, bright and oh-so-fun.  One pair I’m loving is the Jeffrey Campbell Tick Esp (pictured above), which has the normally thumbtacked Jeffrey Campbell Tick shedding its armour in favor of playful, colorful threading all over the heel.  It was available at Envishoes (now sold out) and it’s also sold at Singer22 as the Jeffrey Campbell Tick Fab for $150, but it’s very close to being sold out there as well.  I’m hoping to see these in stock somewhere soon but, no worries, there are plenty of more fabulous multicolored shoes where that came from (Update: You can now get these shoes at Karmaloop for $190.  Get 15% off $75 or more with coupon code MADNE55 through 3/31/11).  Here are some of my other faves:

The Haus of Price Multi Gem pump is on preorder at Solestruck in gold for $239.95 with free shipping.  It’s also available in silver at Stanton James for $245 or get the similar Gameplayer (also known as Solid Goddess) version for the same price.

The Irregular Choice Chica Chola rainbow wedge for $149.99 with free 2-day shipping at

The Dollhouse Neo in multi on preorder for $49.99 at Journey’s (ships in April).

The Nine West Jump Girl for $99 at Macy’s.  Get 25% off 2 or more pairs of shoes with coupon code ADDICTED until 3/13/11.  Shipping is also free on orders $99 or more.  Update:  There is also coupon code WEEKEND that’ll take 10% off this pair, making it $89.10 (exp 3/13/11).

The Jeffrey Campbell Foxy in multi stripe for $125 at Karmaloop.  Get free shipping on $50 with coupon code 50SHIP for a limited time.

The Michael Antonio Gunner for $65 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.

The Diba Chi Keeta for $69 with free shipping at Amazon.

The Coconuts Pauly wedge for $44.95 at DSW.

The Annie Magic Dress Sandal in bright multi for $47.50 with free overnight shipping at Endless.  The clear illusion detail on the front of these definitely makes for an interesting look.

Update: I had to add this pair, the Jessica Simpson Vadio in deep purple.  It’s been sold out everywhere in this colorblock version, but is currently available at Envishoes for $98.95 (sold out).

Update 2: OMG – check this one out!  The Senso Diffusion Sahara for $198 at Karmaloop.  Get 15% off $75 or more with coupon code MADNE55 through 3/31/11.

New DSW coupons: Dollhouse Tano for $39.95 & more

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

I’m really liking the new coupon DSW is offering for June because it takes $10 off any regularly-priced pair of shoes when you apply TAKE10 at checkout and the minimum purchase is a low $10.  That’s pretty good, but it gets even better when you apply second coupon code FREESHIP for free shipping with no minimum purchase required.  You have to log in to your DSW Rewards account to use the $10 off code, but it’s free to join and basically means you’ll receive DSW emails and points for your purchases.  With the coupons, you can score the Dollhouse Tano Bootie – a shoe inspired by the Christian Louboutin Bridget that was included in my recent Sex and the City 2 shoes post – for $39.95 with free shipping.  The $10 off coupon expires 6/28/10 and the expiration for the free shipping code is unknown.

Of note, if you’re looking for a pair inspired by the gold sparkly Christian Louboutin Bridget Strass, Amazon has the Dollhouse Tano in black and gold marked down to $41.97 with free shipping.  Amazon also has the red/black and all black versions for the same price.

Shoe Buzz: Sex and the City 2 shoe style for less

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

Sex and the City 2 is finally out today (yay!) and I won’t be braving the theatres on premier day, although I will attempt to check it out this weekend.  In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to round up all of the shoes we’ve seen so far that are either in the movie or associated with it (i.e. premieres, etc).  Since we know the Sex and the City 2 ladies are always extravagent and over-the-top with fashion – the cost of their wardrobe is said to have been around $10 million – I’ve also found lookalike options that are far less expensive.  These are the shoes we’ve seen in the movie photos and info released up until now, some of which I’ve covered in my previous Sex and the City 2 shoes posts, but now you can see them all in one big super-post.  I’m sure the movie itself will provide plenty of additional footwear eye candy, so I’ll add more as I see them.



We’ll start with the gold heels Sarah Jessica Parker wears as Carrie Bradshaw in her white dress, which is one of my favorite looks so far.  I love the gold and white combo and how the simplicity of the dress allows the shoes to really shine.  These appear to be Christian Louboutin Pigalle Strass heels, but they aren’t available for purchase online (the Halston Heritage white dress is available at Neiman Marcus for $325 though).  However, I did find some similarly sparkly shoes that are sold for less:

H by Halston Stella gold glitter pumps for $79.95 exclusively at Bakers Shoes.  These are also available in silver glitter, multi glitter and brown, white or black leather.  Update: Now on sale for $59.99.

Chinese Laundry Ladybug in gold for $79.95 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.

Enzo Angiolini Merryann in gold and silver for $79.95 at Nordstrom.  The stock photo really doesn’t do this pair justice.  Check out the Goldenmeans blog to see just how gorgeous these look on.




We also see Carrie wearing the Christian Louboutin Bridget Strass in SATC2.  These are unavailable online, but we have a close lookalike from Dollhouse:

The gold version of the Dollhouse Tano is available at for $54.  Or, you can opt for the all black Tano, which DSW offers for $49.95.  Get $10 off at DSW with code TAKE10 (must login) until 6/28 and free shipping with code FREESHIP at checkout.  Update: Amazon has the Dollhouse Tano in red/black, gold/black or all black marked down to $41.97 with free shipping.  Update 2: More similar styles are the Anne Michelle Obscene-14 mesh bootie for $24.80 at Urban Originals and  the embroidered cage snake bootie available at GoJane for $27.70 and the Mesh Floral Embroidery Heels for $24.99 at Amiclubwear.


We see the Christian Louboutin Gino t-strap sandal on Carrie with her bright blue dress.  Again, these are unavailable for sale online and there aren’t too many close lookalikes that I see.  But, these less expensive shoes offer some of the same elements, resulting in a similar look:

Charles by Charles David Racey for $68.77 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.

Betsey Johnson Lavant for $133 at 6pm.

Cri de Coeur Elegance for $100 with free overnight shipping at Endless.

Sarah Jessica Parker looked amazing at the Sex and the City 2 premier in yellow Valentino and dark silver Salvatore Ferragamo double platform heels.  This Steve Madden pair provides a nice alternative:

Steve Madden Caryssa for $89.95 with free overnight shipping at Endless.  Get $15 off $80 with coupon code STATMNTI for a limited time (see site for additional codes that apply to larger purchases).



Sarah Jessica changes into a black dress and bold Nicholas Kirkwood shoes for the premier after-party.  These shoes are sold at Browns, but they are currently out of stock with more coming soon (Update: The version without pink piping is available at for $1,242.40).  This is another unique pair that’s hard to find lookalikes for, but these shoes come close:

Michael Antonio Toki in purple or grey for $66.95 with free 2-day shipping at Endless or for $59.90 with free shipping on $75 or more at FlyJane.

Cut-Out Colorblock Peep Toe Heel for $30 at GoJane.

The Brian Atwood Loca in lavender is worn by Carrie with her plaid shirt and cropped jeans.  The Loca was available at Net-a-Porter for $800, but is now sold out (more stock may be coming soon).  Neiman Marcus has the black and antique brass versions available for $800 and Bergdorf has them for $815.  If you’re looking for a more affordable lavender studded heel lookalike for the Loca, try this pair:

The Steve Madden Twilitte is available at Steve Madden for $109.95 and you can get 25% off and free shipping with coupon code FF25 until 5/31/10.  It also comes in black.

Update: Here’s a Brian Atwood Loca knockoff from GoJane.  It’s $29.90 and comes in black, grey or red.










Miley Cyrus makes a cameo in the movie and she’s dressed identical to Samantha Jones, played by Kim Cattrall, even down to their strappy boots.  These are the Dolce Vita Marilyn, available in very limited sizes at Endless, but almost sold out completely everywhere.  Bebe has a practically identical version, the Bebe Jenna, which is also out of stock (with more coming soon it appears).  For less expensive lookalikes, see this post or check out this pair that reminds me of the Marilyn, except in a lighter, more summer-y way:

Guess Blarney for $140 in black or brown at Update: A few more lookalikes: the N.Y.L.A. Webebe at Amazon or Endless for $169.95 or the Charles Albert New 1769 Double Dip in black for $58 at LuLu’s or the Strappy Detail Thigh High Boot for $45.50 at GoJane or the Suede Buckle Strap Heel Boots for $38.99 at Amiclubwear.

Kim Cattrall’s character Samantha Jones is seen wearing the $148 Patricia Field Classic Polly shoes in white and gold.  You can find these and more shoes by Patricia Field at

The iconic Manolo Blahnik Something Blue shoes make a cameo in SATC2 as part of the shoes in Carrie’s closet.  You can get the real deal at Bergdorf Goodman for $945 or try these blue satin lookalikes for less:

Martinez Valero Zenith Blue for $154.99 at Sears.

RSVP Zaza for $99 with free shipping at Zappos.

Charlotte wears purple peep toe platforms in the movie and the shoes help Carrie locate her in a crowded Abu Dhabi market.  I’m not sure exactly what kind of shoes these are, but the Paris Hilton Sashay in purple is a pretty alternative that looks quite similar.

You can get these for $69.30 at 6pm.





Charlotte also wears the pink and white Christian Louboutin Very Croise platform sandal (seen at Polyvore).  For more affordable shoes that aren’t exact, but have similar design elements and/or colors, try these:

The Shiekh Catwalk 22 in black and white for $25 at  It’s also available in four additional color options.

Another option from Shiekhshoes, the Shiekh Persia-01.  This is actually a lookalike for another designer pair, but it has the same pink and white combo.  These are $44.97.

Get the same color combo in sandal form with the Guess Knotted platform for $98.95 at Endless.  Get $15 more off using coupon code STATMNTI at checkout for a limited time.

Carrie wears a pair of black and blue booties with her green dress that are from Pierre Hardy.  I couldn’t find these shoes online, but the blog Better In Boots has some more info/pics.  For a less expensive option, try this pair:

Fergie Jolt for $48.98 with free shipping at Amazon.

When Carrie runs into Aiden in the Abu Dhabi market, she wears a Dior t-shirt with a long, full skirt and pink suede sandals.  The pink shoes worn by Sarah Jessica Parker are the Manolo Blahnik Lezza, which are unavailable for sale online but you can see a picture of the black version over at Coolspotters.  For a similar alternative, try these shoes:

Pour La Victoire Bridgette in fuschia for $163.90 with free overnight shipping at Endless.

Dollhouse Esina for $49.95 with free overnight shipping at Endless.  This pair is also a lookalike for this Giuseppe Zanotti sandal.

United Nude Cup Goddess for $194.95 at Endless.

Dollhouse Kendra Wedge for $29.99 at Journey’s

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

I don’t know about you, but I can’t go without a great wedge heel for spring and summer (or any other time of the year for that matter).  I love that the height of a wedge heel does wonders for flattering the legs, but they also provide much more comfort than a skinny heel – a total win-win scenerio.  It gets even better when you find a really hot-looking wedge for a great price, like the Dollhouse Kendra.  You’ll see this particular pair for $59.95 at other stores, but Journey’s has them marked down to just $29.99 in black or leopard.  That’s a nice, easy-breezy price for a cool pair of kicks and, as an added bonus, the Kendra features mini studs, one of my fave shoe details of the moment.  If you’re looking for other color options, try Amazon or Endless.  I’m liking the red version too, which is $59.95.

More or Less: Christian Louboutin Chain-Embellished Wedge & Dollhouse Dazie

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

The addition of chains on shoes is an ideal way to exude a bit of rocker style and edge in a way similar to studs, but it’s a bit more of an unusual detail to find on footwear.  That’s why I’m loving this Christian Louboutin Chain-Embellished Wedge, which has a nice mix of silver hardware and raffia, along with a solid black heel for contrast.  If I had $625 to spend, I’d totally work the chain look this spring and summer in this pair.

Since I don’t have that much dough to spare at the moment (and there’s only a couple sizes left anyway), I’m happy to report that there’s another pair with a very similar look, but it costs way less.  This is the Dollhouse Dazie and, while it isn’t an exact replica, it definitely appears to be inspired by the Louboutin pair.  Plus, it’s just $49.99 over at Journeys, which is about $575 in savings.  I’d say that’s off the chain (and, yes, the pun is completely intended).

Note that the Dollhouse pair is currently backordered and is expected to be in stock on 5/8/10.

Update: Here’s another lookalike, the Bebe Thea Chain Espadrilles for $129 at Bebe.

More or Less: Christian Louboutin Bridget knockoff, the Nadara Cosmo

Tuesday, February 9th, 2010

We know that the Christian Louboutin Bridget (and the gold version, Bridget Strass) was a super-hot style for much of 2009 and one that I considered the shoe of the year based on the multitude of celebrities seen wearing it and the fact that it will be featured in the upcoming Sex and the City 2 movie, which is all but guaranteed to be a hit.  The buzz over the Bridget seems to have died down for now, since it no longer appears to be available for sale anywhere online, so I was starting to think that no one would attempt to make a lookalike for this standout pair.  But, oh yes, they did:

I was checking out Journeys today and saw the Nadara Cosmo, which is a dead ringer for the Christian Louboutin Bridget – even down to the red sole (albeit a darker red).  While the Louboutin Strass was priced at $1,785, the Nadara Cosmo is priced way lower at $49.99.  That’s over $1,700 less (if you could still get the Bridget), so I’m predicting these could sell out pretty quick.

Update: Looks like this one is sold out now, but here’s a new lookalike:

The Dollhouse Tano in gold, a Christian Louboutin Bridget Strass knockoff.  There’s also a solid black Bridget replica or a red/black version.  They are each priced at $59.95 with free overnight shipping at Endless.  Update: You can also get these at the Dollhouse shoes website for $54 or at Shoe Bungalow for $59.95 or at DSW for $49.95.

There’s also this patent floral lace bootie at GoJane for $29.70.  Sizes are getting a bit limited.

Update 2: More similar styles are the Anne Michelle Obscene-14 mesh bootie for $24.80 at Urban Originals and embroidered cage snake bootie available at GoJane for $27.70.
