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.

Harajuku Lovers sandals & more brands on sale at Smartbargains

Thursday, July 22nd, 2010

Smartbargains is having a sweet sandal sale and I couldn’t help but notice the bargains they are offering on Harajuku Lovers shoes.  That’s Gwen Stefani’s line of fun and funky footwear (and many other items) inspired by the street style in the Harajuku area of Tokyo.  I find that the brand is somewhat reminiscent of Gwen’s L.A.M.B. line, but the shoes are much more affordable, and I like the fun, girly details they have, like the heart-shaped buckles and pink sole found on many styles.  Right now, Smartbargains has a selection of Harajuku Lovers sandals marked down to $36.98 or less and you get an additional 30% off each pair if you buy two or more.  Do the math and that adds up to a max of $51.76 for two pairs, which is only $25.88 a piece.  That’s a great deal and the $36.98 Harajuku Lovers Karis (pictured above) is eligible, but let’s check out a few more styles:

Harajuku Lovers Kasi for $36.98 in red, black, blue, brown and natural.

Harajuku Lovers Kameryn for $36.98 in silver, brown or black.

Harajuku Lovers Dalle for $36.98 in black (red is sold out).

For more eligible sandals from a wide variety of brands, check out the entire shoe sale.  The expiration is 7/24/10.

I heart the Harajuku Lovers Dmaker nude sandal

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

I’m all about the nude sandal trend this year, which explains my super-crush on this hot pair.  It’s the Harajuku Lovers Dmaker and the color may be neutral, but the overall look certainly isn’t.  It has interesting shapes and cutouts all over and, to top (or bottom) it off, a sunshine yellow sole.  Of course, the heart-shaped buckle is super-cute and totally girly too.  You can get this style for yourself at Amazon, where it’s on sale for $54.60.  I haven’t seen it for less elsewhere, however there aren’t too many sizes left (8.5 and up only).  Amazon also has several sizes in black for an even lower $47.35 or in red for $69.71 (size 8 only).  If you can’t find your size there, head over to 6pm to get it discounted to $63 in nude or black (MSRP $90).

Message from Princess: Lucky green shoes for St. Patrick’s Day

Monday, March 8th, 2010

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up on March 17, I’ve definitely had green shoes on my mind.  While some people don’t necessarily do anything to celebrate the holiday, I think it’s fun to get in the spirit by wearing something green (plus, you’ll avoid a good pinch by St. Patty’s Day revelers on the prowl for anyone not donning the hue).  There are lots of ways to incorporate green into your wardrobe for the Irish holiday, but let’s face it – it’s a great excuse to wear some fabulous green shoes.  Of course, as an added benefit, you can get plenty of wear from a freshly-picked green pair during spring as well.  Here are some of my favorite green shoes that are sure to bring plenty of luck:

So. cute.  The Harajuku Lovers Avallon for $99.95 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.

Fergie Empower in spinach for $99 at with free shipping.  Apply coupon code MSAVE for 20% off, making them $79.20.  They also come in a lighter shade of green called wheatgrass.

Carlos Santana Glamorous for $55.20 (MSRP $110) at 6pm.

Get a little funky with the Naughty Monkey Knot Sure in green.  The best price is at Amazon for $20-$28 depending on selection, but few sizes are left.  Zappos has them in plenty of sizes for $68.95.

Get even funkier with the Irregular Choice Shimmmy, which will obviously stand out in a major way.  Get these for $120.95 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.

Go for simple and sweet with the Miss Me Monet-5 ankle boot for $39.95 with free shipping from Amazon.

Nine West Beaulah for $83.97 (MSRP $119.95) at 6pm.

The elegant Calvin Klein Daliah for $71 (MSRP $118) at 6pm.

This one strikes me as having a true St. Patty’s Day vibe.  The Carlos Santana Rome for $89 with free shipping at  Coupon code MSAVE takes them down to $71.20.

Spring-ready: The SM Ven Rosette Wedge in green for $39.95 at DSW.  Take $10 off orders $10 or more with coupon code MARCH10 at checkout (must sign in to use codes), making them $29.95.

Michael Antonio Hagen for $64.95 with free overnight shipping at Endless.

Seychelles Yin for $46 (MSRP $80) at 6pm.


Now, here’s a few of Cheap Chick’s picks for green shoes under $25.  These are all from 6pm:

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to everyone and may the luck o’ the cute green shoes be with you.

New L.A.M.B. shoes at Fashion Week + L.A.M.B. shoes on sale

Monday, February 15th, 2010

Gwen Stefani showed off her new collection of L.A.M.B. shoes and clothing for fall 2010 this past week at New York Fashion Week.  I’ve always been a fan of Gwen and I think L.A.M.B. is a great example of a celebrity fashion line done right – in stark contrast to the reasons I thought Dina Lohan’s shoe line wasn’t a very good idea.  Super-talented Gwen is an icon for her music and her unique, rocker style, with her shoes being as original as she is.  She also seems like a generally cool person and appears to be a very hands-on mom to her two sons (who are about the same age as my daughters, so I understand just how hectic that can be!).  I must say the boots for this fall look amazing.  I saw her on E! News the other day talking about the new collection and she pointed out the mint green and brown boots (far right in the picture above).  She described these as “delicious” and like a “mint chocolate cookie” and even pretended to take a bite out of them:

Of course, we’ll have to wait until fall to see these in stores and L.A.M.B. shoes tend to be quite expensive for many of us.  I’m sure the boots will be in the $400+ range.  In the meantime, I’ve found some L.A.M.B. shoes on sale that are available now and relatively easier to fit in the budget:

L.A.M.B. Portman for $234.90 at Endless (MSRP $474).  For a limited time, get another 25% off automatically during checkout, making them $176.17.

L.A.M.B. Raja in black or grey for $130 at Amazon with free shipping (MSRP $325).

L.A.M.B. Rio in black or grey for $130 with free shipping at Amazon (MSRP $325).

L.A.M.B. Rhett in red, black, brown or grey for $172.50 at 6pm (MSRP $355).

L.A.M.B. Randi in black or grey/blue for $166.75 at 6pm (MSRP $349).  The nude/black version is $180.  Endless has a better price of $169.90 for the black version and $159.90 for grey/blue with an extra 25% off at checkout, but sizes are very limited.

Of course, you can always opt for Gwen Stefani’s lower-priced line of shoes, Harajuku Lovers.  Almost all of these hot shoes are regularly priced at under $100 or you can get a great sale price on select styles at clearance sites like 6pm.

If you want to get a glimpse into the life of one of the designers behind Harajuku Lovers and Betsey Johnson, be sure to check out Celine at The Shoe Girl’s Blog.  It’s a very cool blog from someone who has the ultimate shoe lover’s dream job!

Ultimate Valentine’s Day Shoes: Harajuku Lovers Dalle

Sunday, February 7th, 2010

If I had to pick one shoe that’s perfect for Valentine’s Day this year, I’d have to vote for the Harajuku Lovers Dalle.  The red hue and girly bows on this platform pump show that you’re all in this Valentine’s Day, but the super-high heel and edgy appeal keep it from being too overly sweet.  Whether you are going out for a romantic evening or hitting the town with friends, you’ll definitely be feeling the love in this shoe.  Luckily, this is Gwen Stefani’s lower priced line of shoes (compared to L.A.M.B. at least) and you can get this style for $99 at Endless with free overnight shipping, leaving plenty of time to get it by V-day.

If you want to spend less on a similar bow-adorned style, be sure to check out the Olsenboye Madeline from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s JCPenney collection.
