New fall shoes on sale at Endless + more shoes on discount

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

Endless is one of my go-to online shoe stores for their wide selection and extra-quick shipping options, but I especially love when they have a good sale on top of all of that.  Right now, they are offering a discount of $25 off $80 on select women’s shoes and more items (update: expired), which is pretty good, but it’s even more notable considering that many eligible styles are new arrivals for fall.  That’s a nice way to get an early discount on something fresh and new for the upcoming season, but there’s also some summer styles eligible as well.  With nearly 2,000 shoe options, there’s definitely plenty to choose from, but one that caught my eye is the pretty Poetic Licence Sweet Dreams (pictured above), which has a very delicate and romantic look with it’s sheer dotted lace detail that runs all the way up to the ankle.  It comes in black, champagne, or dark pink for $129 with free overnight shipping, but falls to $104 after the discount, which is applied automatically during the final stage of checkout.  Here are a couple of more options I found:

The Not Rated Short Stack is another pair from the Not Rated brand with a studded wedge heel very similar to the Jeffrey Campbell Tick.  It comes in white (pictured), black, grey, tan, or yellow for $84.95 with free overnight shipping.  After the discount, you can get them for $59.95.

This pair stood out because of it’s cool black and white giraffe pattern and it’s sweet little price tag for a statement-making fall boot.  Get a little wild in the Michael Antonio Melati, which is $95 before the discount and $70 after.  Free overnight shipping is included and it also comes in an all black version.

I then spotted a nice price on the Sam Edelman Lorissa in Truffle.  It’s marked down to $114.71 and falls to under $100 after the discount – $89.71 with free 2-day shipping to be exact.  There are more options available at various price points depending on the color selected.

For many more, check out all of the shoes on sale.  The $25 discount is available for a limited time (expiration unknown, but the discount will show on the product page if available) and all prices are subject to change.

Update: The $25 off $80 promo listed in this post is now expired.

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Cheap Chick is in da house today, which is great news for shoe lovers on a tight budget….or anyone who gets a thrill out of a seriously good bargain.  If you don’t know, this little birdie loves to hunt for shoes that are on major discount and she makes it her mission to scour the web looking for hidden gems in the sale and clearance sections.  To up the ante, she only finds shoes that are marked down to super-low prices — i.e. $25 or less — but are still way high on style.  Let’s take a look at what Cheap Chick found today:

Fun Shoes for Friday: Not Rated Razzle Dazzle sequin flats

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

We all love the look of heels, but flats are where it’s at when you need increased comfort and wearability for certain weekend activities.  Of course, losing the heels doesn’t mean you can’t get a bit fancy.  The Not Rated Razzle Dazzle flat (above) caught my eye for being completely covered in sequins and studs, which makes it a nice choice to add some shimmer and shine to a more casual look.  Even better, the sale price is totally on point: A mere $21.97 (regularly $49.95) at Endless will add these to your shoe collection in your choice of silver, gold or black with 2-day shipping also being free.  That’s what I call some cute cheap flats, no buyer’s remorse included.

Happy Friday!

Knockoffs for Christian Louboutin Clou Noeud & Jeffrey Campbell Tick

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

You never know just what kind of shoes you’ll run into when browsing stores that are primarily known for selling pretty little underthings (i.e. lingerie).  It’s something I knew before, but I rediscovered it recently while checking out the footwear offered at Frederick’s of Hollywood and Victoria’s Secret.  What caught my eye is some “inspired by” versions of popular styles from both Christian Louboutin and Jeffrey Campbell that I hadn’t seen anywhere else.  First up, we have the Christian Louboutin Clou Noeud spiked heel (above), which was definitely an “it” shoe in the latter half of 2010 and seen worn by a slew of celebs.  These $1,195 shoes are sold out online and I haven’t seen a close lookalike, but I noticed the site In Their Closet found the N.Y.L.A. Genevieve at Nordstrom back in December that replicated the look.  Those are now sold out as well, but Frederick’s of Hollywood offers up another pair as an alternative:

This is the Peep-Toe Leather Artillery Pump in genuine black leather and it’s priced at $94.  You get $10 off $75, $20 off $100 or $40 off $150 automatically in cart until 4/10/11, which drops the price to $84 if ordered without other items.  I wouldn’t call it an exact replica of the Louboutins because you surely wouldn’t mistake one for the other (no signature red heel and less pointy spikes, for instance), but they’re clearly perfect for getting a very similar overall look.  Plus, if you missed the N.Y.L.A. version while it was at Nordstrom, this appears to be the exact same shoe but (presumably) sold under the Frederick’s label.

Update: See more Clou Noeud knockoffs from another post.

The other interesting shoes I came across (pictured above) are from Victoria’s Secret.  This is a style from Naughty Monkey and you’ll likely recognize the tack studded heel from another pair, the Jeffrey Campbell Tick – you know, the shoe that totally gave office supplies a fashion moment when they first came out in 2009.  Naughty Monkey’s version, again, is slightly different with the slingback, double strap styling and the various colored studs on one of the pairs.  I don’t know the exact name of the shoe because Victoria’s Secret usually doesn’t list this information (it’s called Embellished Wedge), but it doesn’t look like it’s currently available anywhere else.  You can get it in black or taupe for $80 (sold out).  If you add something else to your order to meet the minimum purchase requirement, you can get $15 off $100, $30 off $150 or $75 off $250 by applying coupon code SPRING11 through 5/3/11.  The expected ship date is 4/20/11.

Update: Mystery solved:  This shoe is the Not Rated Gaga and it’s also available in black at Journeys for $79.99 (ships in May) and in grey at Buckle for the same price.  Not Rated is a brand owned by the same company as Naughty Monkey.  Update 2: The black version is available at LuLu’s for $79.  Update 3: Piperlime has the black version for $79, Shoemall has grey or black for $79.95 and Zappos has black, grey or taupe for $84.99.

Note that prices and promotions listed are subject to change.

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.

More or Less: Betsey Johnson Nina & Not Rated In LA (plus, the Not Rated Inked)

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

I think the Betsey Johnson Nina in cream is super-adorable, yet sophisticated, with its contrasting stripes and studded bow.  There was also a very appealing red, black and white version available at one time that appears to be sold out online.  You can get the best price on the cream pair at, where it is on sale for $176.99 with free shipping, but few sizes are left. also has them for $251.99 and coupon code MSAVE takes an additional 20% off, making them $201.59.  While this isn’t an outrageous amount of money, it’s still a big chunk of change for many of us and not always doable on a tight budget.

Enter the Not Rated In LA, which offers similar stripes – just in different colors – and a studded bow.  If given the choice (i.e. free reign to spend as much as I want), I would opt for the Betsey Johnson pair because they look higher in quality overall and I prefer the color scheme, but the Not Rated pair is definitely a cute alternative at a much lower price.  You can get this style in black or yellow at for $50 and the 20% off MSAVE code reduces them to $40 with free shipping.  There’s also a blue/white/red version available at for $49.99 with free shipping.

Speaking of Not Rated, I saw this promo photo on Endless and had to find out which shoes were featured here:

And, you guessed it, they are from Not Rated as well (of note, Not Rated shoes are made by the same company as one of my fave brands, Naughty Monkey).  This is the Not Rated Inked:

These pump-boot hybrid shoes clearly look hot with boyfriend jeans and they’re nicely affordable too.  You can get these in black or cream for $60.95 (most sizes) with free shipping at Endless.  However, has them for $60 and the 20% MWAVE code drops them to $48 with free shipping.  They also have the yellow pair, which is now sold out at Endless.  Coupon expiration is unknown.

Cheap-A-Thon: Cute cheap heels under $25

Saturday, February 6th, 2010

*This post is from 2010.  See additional cute cheap shoes in more recent posts.*

As you may know, Cheap Chick has a love for finding shoes on the cheap (i.e. under $25) and even more so now that Valentine’s Day is coming up.  She tends to get all gooey and sentimental about it around this time of year, in contrast to the bad little birdie alter-ego we’ve seen before, but it works out well for anyone looking for their own cute cheap shoes because she’s even fiercer when on the hunt.  Since it is getting close to V-Day, Cheap Chick decided to totally focus on finding heels this time – since many like to get dressed up for the day of love – and she even threw a few pink and red pairs in for good measure.  Here’s what she found:

Two Lips Ceporah in red satin and five other color options for $19.49 (MSRP $77.95) at 6pm.  Update: Now $15.59.

Nine West Rocha in pink or blue for $19.75 (MSRP $79) at 6pm.  Update: Now $15.80.

A Nine West Bonfire lookalike, the Mossimo Vilma in grey for $20.98 (MSRP $29.99) at Amazon

Newport News Patent Slingback Sandal in black and white for $17.99 (regularly $45)

Steve Madden Richh for $22.49 (MSRP $89.95) at 6pm.  Update: The sale price has ended and is now increased to $48.30.

Exchange by Charles David Lunar in leopard for $20.50 (MSRP $82) at 6pm.  Update: Now $16.40.

Not Rated Old Fashion in chocolate for $23.98 (MSRP $59.95) at Amazon

Madden Girl Loveit in giraffe print for $19.98 (MSRP $49.95) at 6pm

Jessica Simpson Straw wedge in red or black patent for $19.75 (MSRP $79) at 6pm.  Update: Now $15.80.

Steve Madden Chazz in red and three other color options for $22.49 (MSRP $89.95) at 6pm.  Update: The red version has sold out.

Schutz 34901005 in brown for $22.43 (MSRP $89.70) at 6pm.  Update: Now $17.94.

Cheap Chick wanted to add one boot to the mix:

Newport News Slouch Bootie in black or taupe for $24.99 (MSRP $49).  Plus, there’s more cute boots under $25 at Newport News.

Please note that many of these sale prices appear to be permanent markdowns, but can change at any time.  Some of the 6pm sales expire 2/7/10.
