Fun Shoes for Friday: RACHEL Rachel Roy Chrissta

Friday, August 5th, 2011

Leopard and other animal prints are unquestionably huge for fall and we’re seeing many shoe options that incorporate the trend right now, but I definitely appreciate this particular take on it.  The RACHEL Rachel Roy Chrissta has the whole animalistic look going on, but with a twist: it pops in bold purple and shades of blue and green. 

Then you have the hanging spike detail in the back, which is a unique touch that gives it even more of a primal vibe.  I must say, it’s appealing to my natural instincts for sure.

You can find this style at Macy’s for $120 and apply coupon code SCORE15 to get 15% off, making the total $102 with free shipping.  The coupon expires 8/7/11.

Hot shoes in cool shades of light & aqua blue

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

Lately I’ve really been crushing on shoes in various shades of light blue.  I’ve always loved the lighter side of blue, but these shades haven’t been too terribly common when it comes to footwear.  That’s why I’ve been happy to see more and more styles available in gorgeous shades of soft blue that range from pale baby hues to bolder aqua pastels.  These are colors that generally have a cool, calming effect when you look at them, much like gazing at a clear sky or tropical ocean might do, and they tend to convey a fresh, clean look.  One fine speciman is the Jeffrey Campbell Garett, available at Envishoes for $144.95, which combines aqua suede and a Valentino-esque bow with dark blue and light green accents.  This is one of my favorites, but there are definitely more to consider, so let’s it check out:

Aldo Frankenberg sandals with a crisp pop of blue for $110 at

Rachel Roy Zahira in light blue for $119 at

Pour La Victoire Irina in aqua for $179.99 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.

Sole Boutique Mamie for $70 at Karmaloop.

Jeffrey Campbell Shy Town for $148 at Lori’s Shoes.

Jeffrey Campbell Tick in light blue for $180 at Karmaloop.

I’m loving all of the above, but if you really want to make a statement with aqua blue, you mix it with fiery shades of pink and orange à la the Jeffrey Campbell Munroe.  With its unabashedly bright color palette and extra-bold styling (love the two-toned platform!), this shoe definitely has the makings of a quintessential fun summer shoe.  Find them at Lori’s Shoes for $140 or at Envishoes for $144.95.

Note: To get a discount on Karmaloop orders, use coupon code SAVE20 to get 20% off $100 and free shipping (first time users only) or try ROCKIT for 15% off $75 (expiration unknown).  For Aldo orders, use 349147751 to get 10% off (expiration unknown).

Fun Shoes for Friday: Rachel Roy Eviana tie-dye heels

Friday, March 4th, 2011

I’ve had tie-dye shoes on my radar ever since Gwyneth Paltrow attended the Country Music Awards late last year wearing an all-out glam Versace gown paired with tie-dye heels by Christian Louboutin.  It was a somewhat unexpected choice for her shoes, since tie-dye is normally considered a more casual, boho look, but they coordinated perfectly with the ombre effect of her dress.  It’s an example of tie-dye gone fancy, but I loved the look and that’s why I’m also loving these adorable Rachel Rachel Roy Eviana heels.  Although I won’t be donning Versace with Louboutins à la Gwyneth anytime soon, these shoes convey a similar, more casual look that would work well with cute little spring dresses, jeans, leggings or pretty much anything else you can think of.  They also go along nicely with the spring denim trend I mentioned before.  You can get them at Rachel Roy for $99 or at Macy’s for the same price.  This pretty pink and grey reptile version is available as well:

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

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.

Have a Dorothy moment in Rachel Roy Kimi red glitter heels

Monday, January 10th, 2011

I watched The Wizard of Oz over the holidays this year and, as always, it’s a classic fave and a movie I’ve seen many times, but it’s been awhile since I last viewed it in its entirety.  Watching it now, I realize that Dorothy and her iconic ruby slippers definitely influenced my love of shoes early on.  It seems that no matter how many times I’ve seen the movie, Dorothy’s red heels never fail to invoke a reaction in me…I quite literally gasp the moment they land on her feet.  I mean, let’s face it, would The Wizard of Oz be the same if Dorothy had worn her plain black shoes throughout the film? Of course not.  The shoes were a star of the movie in their own right and, if they helped Dorothy wield her way through the world of Oz and get back home, surely the right shoes have the same power to help us make our way through our own lives…or at least make us look and feel more fabulous and confident while doing so, which makes all of the difference.


It’s hard to see any heel that’s red and sparkly and not draw a comparison to Dorothy and her slippers.  Look-alikes run the gamut from costume shoes to ultra-pricey versions like the Christian Louboutin Lady Lynch Glitter Strass Pump in red, but not a lot in-between.  I absolutely love the Louboutins, but the chances of me locating a pair and shelling out the cash for them are about as good as…well, being whisked off by a tornado to a fantasy land where they magically appear on my feet…so not going to happen.  But then there’s the Rachel Rachel Roy Kimi (pictured above), a style that has previously been for sale in black and pewter, but is now available in a fiery new hue.  I must say, these shoes certainly caused a reaction for me when I first saw them: they’re red and glittery and that heel…oh my!  But they’re also moderately priced and don’t come across as costumey.  Slip these on and you’ll be a totally modern-day Dorothy in no time, ready to take on the world (closing your eyes and clicking your heels three times optional).

The Rachel Roy Kimi in red is available at Macy’s for $99.  Did I mention that these are perfect Valentine’s Day shoes?

Update: Another red glitter heel option is the Enzo Angiolini Sully in red for $88.95 at Nordstrom.

Shoe Woo Final Clearance Sale: Extra 50-80% off shoes & boots at checkout

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

It’s January and ’tis the season for serious shoe bargains while stores clear inventory to make way for spring, so we’re sure to see plenty of steep discounts going on throughout the month (always a good thing for our shoe shopping tendencies).  But, when it comes to sales, there are those that leave you a bit underwhelmed with the prices and then there are those with red-hot, OMG type discounts.  That’s what’s I’m seeing right now over at Shoe Woo, a site that sells Jones Apparel Group shoe brands like Nine West, Rachel Rachel Roy, Enzo Angiolini, Bandolino, Anne Klein and more.  The bad news – for those who shop there – is that the website is closing (store locations will remain open).  The good news?  As a result, they are having a “Crazy Clearance” sale with some drastically reduced prices on their selection of shoes and boots, which get an extra 50-80% off at checkout.  For instance, the Enzo Angiolini Nate boot (pictured above), which has a cuff you can wear up or down, is normally $250 and gets an additional 80% off in-cart for a price of just $50 in black or brown.  Here are some additional styles you might want to check out:

The Nine West Paoletta in black is marked down from $89 to $34.99 and gets another 50% off at checkout, making it $17.49.  A leopard version is also available (almost sold out) for $49.99 and $24.99 in-cart.

The Bandolino Indulge in grey suede, black suede or black leather is $109 and reduced to $21.80 after an 80% off in-cart discount.

The Rachel Roy Wava boot in plaid or black is marked down from $159 to $111.30 and gets another 60% off at checkout, making it $44.52.

The Enzo Angiolini Maiden in black is $99 and gets 70% off in-cart, making it $29.70.

The Joan & David Beesly in black or grey/black is $325 and gets 70% off at checkout, which reduces the price to $97.50.

The Enzo Angiolini Kaiser in taupe or black is $120 and 80% off is taken at checkout, dropping the price to $24.

There are plenty of more shoes and boots to choose from, so be sure to check it out!

Note that each shoe is marked with its eligible discount and all sales are final.  Shipping adds a flat $5 to your order.

Update: I noticed that some of the prices listed here have changed since this was originally posted, so be sure to double-check the current pricing if you plan to make a purchase.
