Kelsi Dagger

Pink bow heels seen on E! News, the Kelsi Dagger Tiffany shoes with detachable bow

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

I was watching E! News last night – the 12/21/10 episode – and noticed a familiar pair of shoes during their style segment.  During this part of the show, they highlighted some affordable holiday wear and this hot pink shoe was featured as a way to add a pop of color to a little black dress.  I recognized it as the Kelsi Dagger Tiffany pump, which is a shoe that pulls double-duty with its detachable bow.  You can wear the bow any way you can think of or you can remove it and still have a pretty, unadorned platform pump to wear – because sometimes you feel like wearing a bow and sometimes you just don’t, right?.  E! News cited Endless as the store that sells these and you can get them there in pink, red, grey, black or blush suede or black patent for $70.20 – $99.95 depending on color selection, plus free overnight shipping.  But, Karmaloop actually has a better price right now.  They offer this pair in pink, black or red suede for $100 or in black patent for $90 and they’ve also extended their coupon code BERSERK (which I mentioned on Facebook the other day), which takes 30% off and adds free shipping.  That makes all of the suede versions $70 shipped and the black patent pair $63.  If you order today by 8 pm ET, which is also the expiration for the coupon code, you can still get them in time for Christmas.

Update: The 30% off code listed above has expired at Karmaloop, but you can use coupon NAUGHTYELVES for 25% off and free shipping (exp. 12/31).  If you want them by Christmas, you can use WOWSHIP instead to get $12 flat-rate overnight shipping if you order by 12/23/10 at 7 pm ET.

Kelsi Dagger Brandi for $124 at Karmaloop + Jeffrey Campbell Giggle Tic boot

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

Kelsi Dagger shoes have really been grabbing my attention lately, as you can tell from the two pairs I mentioned in my spring shoes trends post.  The brand was launched just last year by Pour La Victoire designers David Giordano and Jay Adoni as a unique take on a junior’s shoe line.  And different it is – the shoes have definitely managed to stand out in a crowded shoe market for me.  According to the Kelsi Dagger website, the brand name is derived from a fictional English femme fatale and “Kelsi Dagger is confident, independent, slightly dangerous and speaks to the accelerating velocity of how young people live today.”  Case in point: The Kelsi Dagger Brandi, a new arrival over at Karmaloop, which is a perfect mix of rock chick and glam.  I love the wide ankle wrap with circular cutouts and the generous use of sparkly rhinestones on this pair but, even aside from pure looks, Kelsi Dagger shoes are quite moderately priced as well.  Of course, I’m all about getting things on sale, so it works out that Karmaloop always seems to have a coupon that will discount your purchase.  You can currently use 20% off coupon code CLINTON to drop the price on this pair from $155 to $124.  The expiration date on the coupon is unknown and shipping is extra.

Another standout new arrival from Karmaloop is the Jeffrey Campbell Giggle Tic gladiator boot, the latest reincarnation of the Jeffrey Campbell Tick.  I have to admit I like the Tick in wedge bootie form better, but you can’t deny the all-out drama factor of this pair.  There are only 3 sizes left (7, 8, 9), but you can get this style for $160 instead of $200 at Karmaloop if you apply 20% off coupon CLINTON at checkout.

Update 7/8: The Giggle Tic sold out quick the first time at Karmaloop, but it’s back in stock.  For how long, I don’t know.
