Shoes to Love: Heels & Flats with Hearts

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

It’s Valentine’s Day and I hope love is in the air for everyone, but perhaps a little shoe love is in order.  Something I’m always sweet on is the use of heart detail on shoes.  It doesn’t matter the style of shoe – whether classic or edgy or eclectic or casual – a heart always adds a nice dose of girly romance to the look.  That’s why I’ve rounded up a variety of styles (a little something for everyone, you might say) that all display the ultimate symbol of love in some form or fashion.  One that I’m particularly loving is the Betsey Johnson Glitzeee, a sparkly peep toe pump with heart that’s available for $132.95 with free shipping at Endless.  You also get an extra 20% off at checkout through 2/14/12.  Or, you get them for $132.05 with free shipping at Shoes.com with 20% off via coupon code SECRET20 through 2/15/12.  You can also get it in black with red lips – very appros for Valentine’s Day – as well as star and lightning bolt versions.

If you prefer a flat, you can find the adorable Betsey Johnson Smoooch for $77.99 with free shipping at Zappos.

Another cute flat with heart detail: The Miss Me Mooz-16 in black/red or grey/pink for $15.99 with free shipping at 6pm.

To get a a red sequin heart on the back of a pretty bow pump, try the Iron Fist Jen’s Heart for $54.99 with free shipping at Heels.com.

More from Iron Fist: The Iron Fist Loose Lips (pictured) or the very similar Iron Fist Love Bites, both in leopard prints with heart charm detail.  These shoes are both available at Amazon with prices that vary by size and color.

For a super-sexy vibe, go for the Betsey Johnson Baamm in leopard for $139.99 at Dillards.

Or, the Betsey Johnson Boomm with heart detail on the platform for $84.99 with free shipping at 6pm.

It looks like Cupid’s been paying a visit to Irregular Choice – just check out that heel.  The Irregular Choice Oh Ello, which is $199 at Irregular Choice, has a cutout wedge heel with hearts and an arrow going through the center, plus it’s topped off with a dramatic flower bouquet.  Other styles with this heel include the Irregular Choice Iris Blue and the Irregular Choice Miss Twiss.

Another cute and quirky choice with heart detail from the same brand: The Irregular Choice I’m From Bury for $115 at Irregular Choice (almost sold out) or $139 at Must Have Shoes.

For a platform with an edgy vibe and sweet heart cutout in the heel, check out the T.U.K. A8047L for $114 with free shipping at Endless.  Similar styles include the T.U.K. A8046L in red and black for $114 and the T.U.K. A7877L in leopard for $110.  A 20% discount applies to each of these automatically at checkout through 2/14/12.

Also from the same brand, the T.U.K. A8052L in gold/black or the T.U.K. A8051L in blue/black with heart cutout in the heel, but a lower platform than the styles above.  These are both $104.50 with free shipping and eligible for an automatic 20% off at checkout through 2/14/12.

Finally, if you’re a cowgirl at heart, you’ll love these Durango Crush Heart Boots with heart-shaped cutouts.  They come in red, taupe or black at Amazon with prices from $113 depending on size and color selection.

I hope everyone has a wonderful V-day!

Gretchen wears Report Signature shoes on Watch What Happens Live

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

I’ve had some questions on Facebook about the sparkly silver ankle cuff heels that Gretchen Rossi of The Real Housewives of Orange County wore while making an appearance with boyfriend Slade on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Sunday night (3/13/11).  Gretchen wore these shoes with a form-fitting purple dress and they definitely add a nice dose of shine to her look, almost like they could be glitter.  But, they are actually these “ivory” bead-covered shoes:

Gretchen wore the Report Signature Vanderbuilt and, despite the brand name of the shoes being mentioned on the show, they were tough to track down because, unfortunately, they are now sold out everywhere.  You can see them listed at Endless or Bluefly, but there are also some sellers offering this pair on eBay as well.  Otherwise, here are some styles with similar details that are worth checking out as alternatives:

Steve Madden Glitsi for $109.95 at Steve Madden.  Coupon code rmn15f takes 15% off and gives free shipping, making them $93.46 (expiration unknown).  If they have your size, get them for $69.99 with free shipping instead at PiperlimeUpdate: Now priced at $76.95.

Dolce Vita Misty for $104.47 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.

Dolce Vita Vanni for $146.90 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.  Update: Out of stock at Endless, but Last Call by Neiman Marcus has them for $159.

Miss Me Diva-17 in silver for $26.09 with free shipping at Amazon.  Update: Now $16.73 in silver, but only one size left.

Naughty Monkey Shinner for $84.95 at Shoemall.  Get 20% off $20 with coupon code LUCKY20 until 3/17/11.  You can also get this style at ZapposUpdate: Now $67.99 at Shoemall, but also available at DSW for $49.95.

Chinese Laundry Miranda for $67.98 – $119.99 depending on size and color selection at Amazon.

Find My Shoes: Purple satin peep toe heels with crystal detail

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

It seems a lot of people are on the hunt for the perfect pair of purple shoes, like in another recent Find My Shoes post, and I’m all too happy to help out in the search because I definitely find myself drawn to this pretty shade too.  This time, we have Sara, who mentioned on Facebook that she is looking for a dark purple satin pair with clear crystal detail.  I checked into it and found some shoes that just might fit the bill based on her description (or at least come close).  Here are the options I came across:

The Nina Nabal in purple for $44.98 plus shipping at 6pm or $65 with free shipping at Zappos (MSRP $89.95).

The Menbur Narya in purple for $106.31 (list $124) with free 2-day shipping from Endless.  I’m loving the sparkle down the heel.

The Menbur Chloe for $138.81 (list $184) with free 2-day shipping from Endless.  We don’t have all clear stones on this one, but it’s still a viable option.  Also, check out more in purple from Menbur here (I’m loving the Arda).

The Paco Mena Pelori for $95 with free 2-day shipping at Endless, plus more purple heels from the same brand.

The Miss Me Jocelyn-27 in purple for $46.33 (most sizes) with free shipping at Amazon.

Hopefully this will help, but it’s also worth noting that Facebook friend Crystal Couture out of the UK does custom crystal shoes, so that may be something to check into as well.  They have the purple Crystal Snowdrops (scroll down to see it) as an option.

Update:  Here’s another gorgeous purple pair, the Steve Madden Luvly.  Find it at Steve Madden for $129.95.

Spring 2011 Hot Shoe Trends: Denim shoes

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Lately, I’ve noticed that many shoe designers seem to be catching a case of the blues — but in the best possible way, of course, because what I’m referring to is a spring denim trend.  Blue jeans are always a closet staple, but this trend is all about the use of denim for other types of clothing and accessories, such as shoes.  And like your favorite pair of jeans, shoes in denim have the potential for some serious multitasking in any wardrobe due to the versatility of the fabric.  It also tends to exude a cool, casual vibe perfect for toning down a look and making it more laid-back, which works well when this is the desired effect.  I first observed this trend emerging when Mr. Louboutin released shoes in denim for the upcoming season, like the drool-worthy Christian Louboutin Pigalle 120 studded denim pumps pictured above for $975 at Net-a-Porter (almost sold out) and more styles, like the Christian Louboutin Greissimo in denim for $875 and the Christian Louboutin Deroba Denim Wedge for $595 at Neiman Marcus.  Plus, as Fashionologie reports, denim pieces were seen all over the runway for several noted designers and, in addition, we have the lovely Rachel Roy, who recently released an array of denim shoes as part of her Rachel Rachel Roy line.  If you want to get in on the denim shoe trend, here are some styles to check out: 

This is one of my current favorite shoes and it’s available in a limited-edition denim version exclusively at Akira: the Sam Edelman Lorissa for $183.90.  Update: This pair is now also available at Nordstrom for $225.

Update: Here’s another one from Sam Edelman and I had to add it because I am soooo loving it.  The Sam Edelman Novato in light blue for $90 at Lori’s Shoes or $99.95 at Nordstrom.

The Fever Monica in bleached denim for $200 at Fever Shoes.

The Rachel Roy Idana for $99.99 at Macy’s.  Apply code PRESIDENT to get 10% off, making them $89.99, through 2/21/11.  I’m also hoping the Rachel Roy Kimi in light blue with red glitter platform might make a comeback after being sold out – love!!

The Jeffrey Campbell Hill Boot in blue denim for $220 at Karmaloop.  Coupon code JUST4U takes 20% off for a limited time, making them $176.

The Miss Me Woody-5 for $54.10 at Endless.

The Sergio Zelcer Witt for $136.32 in limited sizes at Endless.  See all Sergio Zelcer for more denim styles.

The Dr. Scholl’s Bombshell denim flat for $29 at Endless.

The Matisse Slade for $34.98 at 6pm or $32.49 at Sears.

The Guess Bilsor in limited sizes for $76.97 at 6pm.

Find My Shoes: Purple wedding shoes

Monday, January 31st, 2011

When I heard that Heather, a friend of Fairy Shoe Princess on Facebook, was looking for the perfect purple wedding shoes, it didn’t take long for me to start checking out what was available.  To be honest, I’m always down for looking at pretty purple pairs, but particularly so when it comes to a special event like a wedding.  I don’t know too many specifics of what Heather is looking for in terms of exact style or shade, but I set out to find a selection of dressy shoes in various purple color options that I think would work well for the big day.  Here’s what I found:

I mentioned a pair of shoes very similar to these before – the tutu-inspired Steve Madden Fifi in blush or black – but I’m definitely loving this bright purple version.  The SM Lace Platform is available at DSW for $99.95.

You can add some serious sparkle with the Night Moves by Allure Star purple sequin heel, which is sold at Shoes.com for $90 with free shipping.

There’s also plenty of shine on these stunning floral heels, the Betsey Johnson Iris.  You can find these at 6pm for $122.50 with $6.95 for shipping.

The Betsey Johnson Izzy is quite similar to the Iris color-wise, but it has a little something blue mixed in, which is a nice plus.  Get these for $122.50 with $6.95 for shipping at 6pm.

It’s kind of hard to tell when seeing it off the foot, but I think the large rose detail on the Nina Galiza could be really gorgeous, particularly in this shade.  Get these at Shoes.com for $99 with free shipping.  Update: Here’s another Nina shoe with large floral detail in a darker shade of purple, the Nina Critia for $40.50 at 6pm.

These don’t appear to be the most comfortable of options, but I do love the soft shade of lavender and the cluster of petal-like detail on the vamp.  The Miss Me Dazzle-32 sandals in lilac are available at Endless for $45.95 with free 2-day shipping.

The RSVP Rain looks like it offers more comfort with the built-in Foot Petals and the higher platform to help offset the height of the heel.   Plus, they are simply elegant and pretty.  Get these at Zappos for $89 with free shipping.

Finally, we have the gorgeous violet satin Martinez Valero Zoie heels.  These are available at Shoes.com for $141.55 with free shipping.

Note: For any of the regularly-priced Shoes.com styles listed above, get 20% off your order with coupon code VISA at checkout.  It may require payment by Visa and expires 6/30/11.

Hopefully this helps Heather and anyone else who loves purple shoes like I do!

Update: I’m adding a few more shoes for Facebook friend, Melody, who is looking for purple heels with a rhinestone ankle cuff.  These are the closest options I could find:

Bourne Tiffany in lilac for $181.97 at Amazon or $200.16 at Endless.

The sparkle isn’t on the ankle for this one, but it’s a gorgeous shoe and such a steal: the Express Jeweled T-Strap Heel for $39.99 at Express with an extra 40% off at checkout to drop it to $23.99 (limited time offer).

The Mitzy Hachi-190 is also available for a great price: $19.95 at Endless, but almost sold out.  It’s available at ShiekhShoes for $54.97.

I’m loving the disco ball effect on these Martinez Valero Chase sandals in purple, which are available for $156.95 at Amazon.

Update 2:  I’m finding the purple Steve Madden Luvly quite lovely, so I had to add it!  Find it at Steve Madden for $129.95.
