Shoes that Shine: Summer sandals with the mirror effect

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

One trend that I’ve been loving this season is the use of super-shiny, metallic detail on shoes, particularly when the shoe is otherwise neutral, but one part is accented with highly reflective metallic material or metal plate detail.  It’s basically like shoes with a pop of color, only with a pop of shine instead, which certainly adds a nice element of flash.  I also find it particularly appros for summer, when the sun is shining and high-gloss shoes reflect that light, creating a modern, oh-so-bright effect.  If you like reflective mirror detail on shoes too, especially at a moderate price point, I’ve rounded up various options that provide the look.  For instance, the Sam Edelman Yelena (pictured above) for $133 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.  You can also shop at Belk to get them on sale for $70 and shipping is free if your order totals $99 or more.  Here are some more:

Aldo Acal on sale for $41.99 (regularly $80) at Aldo.

Vince Camuto Kipton in gold or silver for $118 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.  Also available in both colors for $118 at Dillards.

Sam Edelman Sophie for $119.95 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.

Nine West Wewantit on sale for $59 (regularly $79) in 3 colors and $79 for the gold version at Nine West.  Shipping is free for a limited time.

Steve Madden Whyknot on pre-order for $109.95 at Steve Madden.  Coupon code SMSUMMER15 takes 15% off and gives free shipping (exp. 8/31/12).

Aldo Skillings on sale for $45.49 (regularly $90) at Aldo.

Nine West Cmon on sale for $49 (regularly $89) in 3 color options at Nine West.  Shipping is free for a limited time.

Happy Wednesday!

Purple wedding shoes in plum & more shades

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Since wedding season is upon us, we have plenty of brides looking for the ideal shoes to go along with their dress; thus, we have another bridal-themed Find My Shoes post today!  I received two requests recently from brides-to-be that are both looking for purple shoes for their big day.  First, we have Shannon, who is wearing the beautiful Alfred Angelo Belle dress (pictured above, left) and wants to find shoes in the shade of David’s Bridal plum.  She loves the look of the $230 High Society Heel at My Glass Slipper (pictured above, right), but needs something more affordable.  We also have Jessica, who wants to find an elegant, not-too-expensive style in bright purple.  So, I’ve been on the hunt for a plethora of pretty purple pumps that just might work for these ladies, or at least hopefully so.  Here’s what I found:

After looking at available options, I believe the best way to get the look of the High Society heel on a budget is to go with a shoe clip.  The nice thing about going this route is having more flexibility to choose the exact shoe style you want – for instance, Bridalshoes.com has lots of dyeable wedding shoes under $100 in various heel heights and 4 shades of purple to choose from.  A simple, but dressy heel, like the dyeable satin Touch Ups Flash-647 (pictured above, left) could work well and it’s affordably priced at $54 with a $14 dye fee.  You can then pick out a shoe clip and I tend to like the wide selection of options at Etsy.  The floral shoe clip pictured above is $24 in gold or silver and I think it would look really nice contrasted with purple.  When you combine the cost of the shoe and the shoe clip, it totals $92, which is less than half the cost of the High Society style.

Here are some ready-made options I found (Note: I tried to get as close as possible to the requested plum shade, but I am basing this solely on the picture, which may not always be exact):

Allure Bridals Starlight for $79.95 with free shipping at Shoebuy.  Coupon code SPRING15 takes 15% off (expiration unknown).

RSVP Cailyn for $99 with free shipping at Zappos.

Nina Elke for $99 with free shipping from Zappos.

Coloriffics Rave for $99.95 with free shipping at Endless.  Spend $100 or more on eligible styles, including this one, and get 20% off with coupon code FORMAL12 (exp 5/7/12).  The base color of these shoes appears lighter, but the stones are a darker purple.

Poetic Licence Spectacle in purple for $62 with free shipping from Must Have Shoes or $79 with free shipping from Planet Shoes.

Touch Ups by Benjamin Adams Bev for $61.99 with free shipping from Shoes.com.  Coupon code SECRET20 takes 20% off (exp unknown).

Bourne Susie in Aubergine for $136.85 with free shipping from Endless.

Poetic Licence Force of Nature, an option that’s a bit different than the rest, but still has plenty of purple, for $89.40 at Dillards or $109 at Must Have Shoes, both with free shipping.

Now for some bright purple options.  I included more variety as far as the actual shade goes with these shoes since bright purple can mean different things to different people.  Of course, it’s the bride’s call to determine what exact shade will work for her, so here are some possibilities to consider:

Charles by Charles David Glacee in purple for $125.34 with free shipping from Endless.

Dyeables Lacey in purple for $69.99 with free shipping at Shoes.com.  Coupon code SECRET20 takes 20% off (exp unknown).

Coloriffics Miley in purple for $69.95 with free shipping from Endless.  Spend $100 or more on eligible styles, including this one, and get 20% off with coupon code FORMAL12 (exp 5/7/12).

Ivanka Trump Alluvia for $82.11 with free shipping at Endless.

H by Halston Abigail for $59.99 at Bakers (for the platform lovers!).

Steve Madden Hadley-R for $119.95 at Steve Madden and coupon code SMSPRING15 takes 15% off $75 and gives free shipping for a limited time.

Lulu Townsend Blossom wedge for $54.95 at DSW.  Members get free shipping on $35 with coupon code SHIPR through 6/20/12.

Nine West Devika for $49.99 with free shipping at 6pm.

Pour La Victoire Evelia for $74.50 with free shipping at Endless.

J.Renee Rosina in multi for $79.95 with free shipping at Endless.  This option clearly isn’t solid purple, but if you look close at the glitter, there is plenty of purple mixed in, so it could be really pretty.

Congratulations to both brides!

Spring Shoes in Pastels: Nine West Topshoe Mary Jane peep toe pumps

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

I’ve been admiring the Nine West Topshoe lately for all of the pretty pastel shades it’s offered in.  Pastels, of course, are very on-trend this spring and when combined with this striking Mary Jane silhouette and contrasting heel and strap, it’s hard not to love this style.  But, if I were to buy it, what would be hard is picking out a favorite hue.  I mean, there’s the pastel green you see above, which is particularly lovely since mint shades have been hot this season, but then there’s also this gorgeous sky blue version (I have a bit of a weakness for this color):

Or a pretty in pink option:

Or a splash of yellow, never a bad thing:

Then again, one could nix the pastels and go with the versatility of black and white, a color combo that’s always hard to resist:

If you’re feeling much more decisive than me about one of these options, you’ll be glad to know about some sales and discounts available.  Nine West has just marked them down from $89 to $69 and they also have free shipping.  Nine West doesn’t have the black and white pair, but Macys has them for $89 and you can get 25% off with coupon code FRIENDS until 4/30/12.  If you need more size options (many are sold out at Nine West), you can also find all of the shades except yellow at Endless for $89.  If you spend over $100 on eligible styles, including this one, you can get 20% off your order using coupon code MOTHER20 through 5/13/12.  Zappos has yellow, blue, and black/white for $89 with free shipping.

Which shade is your fave?

Find My Shoes: Jimmy Choo Bello look-alike + low heel clear crystal shoes

Friday, March 9th, 2012

Happy Friday to everyone!  Today, I’m talking about two requests I received to help find bridal shoes and, since the inquiries were somewhat similar, I’m going to include them both in one Find My Shoes post.  The first request is for a more affordable version of the gorgeous Jimmy Choo Bello wedge you see pictured above (love!) and the other is for a low-heel, crystal-covered shoe, preferably with a clear upper.  So, I set my sights on some similar options and found some potential pairs.  Let’s dive right in, shall we?

First, we have options for the wedge.  I find that the sparkling, textured upper, the slim silhouette, and the wedge heel (3.5 inches, no high platform) are the three features that stand out most on the Jimmy Choo pair, which are priced at $595 at Nordstrom.  While I didn’t see any lower-priced options with these exact features, I did find shoes that incorporate at least two out of three, so they could be possibilities based on which elements matter most to the wearer.  I think the closest look to the Choos overall is the Butter Calm in silver (above), which is $304 at Amazon.  Here are some more:

Nina Fern for $78.95 at Nordstrom.

Nine West Flax in Light Gold on sale for $58.65 with free shipping at 6pm.

Enzo Angiolini Roxas for $99 at Bloomingdales.

Touch Ups Autumn for $89.95 at Onlineshoes.com.  Coupon code 2WINDY10 takes 10% off regularly-priced items through 3/31/12.

J.Renee Arlinda in silver for $52.11 with free 2-day shipping from Endless.

Lulu Townsend Chic for $49.95 at DSW.

Celeste Marisa-03 for $70.99 with free 2-day shipping from Endless.

If none of these quite fit, perhaps a custom shoe is in order.  The “blank slate” wedge you see above is one style that’s available at Milk & Honey Shoes, a site that offers the option to choose from various shoe styles and add the exact options you want,  such as material, heel height, and more for a price of $275.

Now, we have options for the low-heeled clear shoes with crystals – A Cinderella slipper, you might say, and one that is around two inches or less in the heel.  Here’s what I found:

 Lava Melody-3065 for $49.95 or the similar Lava Riviera-3025 for $44.95 at MetallicBridalShoes.com.

Lava Dawn-3095 for $54.95 at MetallicBridalShoes.com.

Cinderella Slippers for $29.95 at Pyramid Collection.

Melissa Ultragirl + J. Maskrey flat for $350 at Endless.

 

Touch Ups Candy for $74.95 with free shipping at Onlineshoes.com.  Coupon code 2WINDY10 takes 10% off regularly-priced items through 3/31/12.

 

Steve Madden I-Dreamy for $49.98 at Stevemadden.com.

Another option might be purchasing a completely clear shoe and adding crystals to it, either through a company or individual that provides this type of service or even DIY it if you feel so inclined.  Here are some shoes that could work for this type of scenario:

Touch Ups Cinderella for $55.95 with free shipping at Shoebuy.  Coupon EMLSPRINGAHEAD12 takes 20% off through 3/11/12.

Vaneli Briseis on sale for $36.60 with free shipping at 6pm.

Update – More options I came across:

Express Glitter Open-Toe Midi-Wedge on sale for $34.93 at Express.  I also found a flat clear sandal with rhinestone detail at Aldo, the Aldo Resteika for $40.

Annie Bobby II for $39.95 at DSW.

Update 2: Another option for the Jimmy Choos with similar detail on the upper and a silver metallic heel:

J. Renee Selah for $104.95 at Nordstrom.

Hopefully this helps and thanks for the requests.

Have a great weekend!

Fun Shoes for Friday: Nine West Grase

Friday, July 15th, 2011

Thank goodness it’s Friday!  And thank goodness for this gorgeous red heel, which might just have you feeling compelled to walk away from people more often.  But, no worries — it’s all in the name of showing off the stunning view from the back.  Here’s the front view:

The Nine West Grase takes a closed toe, red satin pump and totally ups the glam factor with the rhinestone and sequin detail.  I’m loving this red version most of all, but it also comes in black satin, black suede, light grey suede, or tan suede, each with clear rhinestones rather than the colored ones on the red pair.  Get them on pre-order at Nine West for $109 with an expected ship date of 7/26/11.  You’ll also see another $10 off $50 automatically at checkout, making them $99, and free shipping for a limited time.
