St. Patricks Day Shoes: Green heels & flats

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

St. Patrick’s Day is coming up this weekend, so if you have plans for this Saturday and want to get into the spirit of the holiday by wearing green, why not do it with your shoes?  Shoes are the perfect way to have a little fun with the tradition of donning the shade and there are certainly plenty of options for whatever you have planned for the day.  Plus, you just might have a little extra luck on your side – at least that’s what they say – and you definitely won’t get pinched.  That’s why I always love to check out the footwear available in green every time St. Patty’s Day draws near.  One pair I came across, the Mojo Moxy Petals in green (pictured above), is one that I find particularly appros for the day.  These are floral, but you have to admit some of the detail looks a lot like clovers – if only they were 4-leaf, right?  Still a great option and you can find these for $79.95 with free 2-day shipping at Endless, plus get 20% off $100 select styles with coupon code FRNDSFAM through 3/15/12.  There are limited sizes left, but we have plenty additional options.  Let’s take a look:

Neon Bright: Senso Agnes in green + more new Senso shoes

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

We’ve seen plenty of bold and bright colors take center stage this season and, as the weather heats up, we’re seeing more and more neon shades that take the trend up a notch.  That’s why I’m loving the fresh color of the Senso Agnes wedge (above), which is available in “Fleuro”, a neon green hue that definitely isn’t seen very often when it comes to shoes.  This super-bright shade is guaranteed to stand out and I also like the cool little cutouts, which form an indentation along both ends of the heel.  More than just a mere pop of color, this pair is like…boom.  There’s also a turquoise version available:

Get these shoes at Solestruck for $174.95 and, if you’re a fan of the brand, be sure and check out all of the new Senso shoes they just got in.  Another fave of mine is the navy and gold version of the ever-popular Senso Wilma:

That gorgeous blue leather…sigh.

Update: The pink Senso Agnes is also now available at Solestruck.

Fun Shoes for Friday: Senso Sahara, Senso Wilma in pink leopard & more at Karmaloop

Friday, March 25th, 2011

I normally feature one shoe on Friday that’s tailor-made for going out, but today must be a deluxe edition because I had to post more than one shoe from Senso.  If you regularly browse the selection over at Solestruck, you’ve likely already seen this brand (I’ve also mentioned them here and here).  But, as of earlier this week, you can also find them at Karmaloop, which is nice since Karmaloop seems to always have coupons available to discount your purchase.  These shoes aren’t just for going out, they’re for going ALL out – the kind that get noticed everywhere they step.  Are they practical?  Well, no.  But, making a statement can trump being sensible more than we care to admit.  So, if you’re up for something bold and edgy to hit the town in, check out these styles at Karmaloop:

Senso Sahara, my fave, in multi for $198.

Senso Wilma in hot pink leopard, pewter glitter or tan leopard for $200.  This is one of the styles we’ve also seen at Solestruck, but they are very close to being sold out right now.

Senso Sally in purple for $198.

Senso Neve in Kaleidoscope Black for $235.  We’ve seen this style before too, but this particular color is exclusive to Karmaloop.  It also comes in Black Nappa and Gun Metal.

Senso Rush glitter wedge for $175.

See all of the styles from Senso Diffusion at Karmaloop for more options.  Then, get a sweet discount via coupon code PDYAL9 which takes 15% off $80 and gives free shipping.  The coupon expires 3/27/11.

For more shoe savings, check out these sales and coupons:

Rock & Republic shoes under $50: YOOX is having a clearance sale that takes up to 85% off sale items, including clearance designer shoes.  There are tons of options, but I noticed there are quite a few Rock & Republic styles marked way down.  Normally $145-$180, these styles are now $40-$49 with free shipping.

Shoes.com: Get 20% off your order, even on sale items, with coupon code SECRET20 through 3/31/11.  Some exclusions apply.

Chinese Laundry: Get 25% off sale shoes with coupon code 25MAR11 through 3/31/11.

Have a great weekend!

Multicolor shoes for going super-bright this spring

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

*Update: This post is from 2011.  See my latest multicolor shoes posts for more*

If there’s one thing I love about spring, it’s the emergence of color.  Applying color to our look is more of a year-round style staple than a trend, but we do tend to see more bold hues being used in fashion when things heat up outside.  When it comes to shoes, you can always add a pop of color in one shade at a time, which works very well, but you can also opt for a wide array of color all in one pair.  Many designers are mixing it up in this way, as seen on Neiman Marcus and these are shoes that, by their very nature, are cheerful, bright and oh-so-fun.  One pair I’m loving is the Jeffrey Campbell Tick Esp (pictured above), which has the normally thumbtacked Jeffrey Campbell Tick shedding its armour in favor of playful, colorful threading all over the heel.  It was available at Envishoes (now sold out) and it’s also sold at Singer22 as the Jeffrey Campbell Tick Fab for $150, but it’s very close to being sold out there as well.  I’m hoping to see these in stock somewhere soon but, no worries, there are plenty of more fabulous multicolored shoes where that came from (Update: You can now get these shoes at Karmaloop for $190.  Get 15% off $75 or more with coupon code MADNE55 through 3/31/11).  Here are some of my other faves:

The Haus of Price Multi Gem pump is on preorder at Solestruck in gold for $239.95 with free shipping.  It’s also available in silver at Stanton James for $245 or get the similar Gameplayer (also known as Solid Goddess) version for the same price.

The Irregular Choice Chica Chola rainbow wedge for $149.99 with free 2-day shipping at Heels.com.

The Dollhouse Neo in multi on preorder for $49.99 at Journey’s (ships in April).

The Nine West Jump Girl for $99 at Macy’s.  Get 25% off 2 or more pairs of shoes with coupon code ADDICTED until 3/13/11.  Shipping is also free on orders $99 or more.  Update:  There is also coupon code WEEKEND that’ll take 10% off this pair, making it $89.10 (exp 3/13/11).

The Jeffrey Campbell Foxy in multi stripe for $125 at Karmaloop.  Get free shipping on $50 with coupon code 50SHIP for a limited time.

The Michael Antonio Gunner for $65 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.

The Diba Chi Keeta for $69 with free shipping at Amazon.

The Coconuts Pauly wedge for $44.95 at DSW.

The Annie Magic Dress Sandal in bright multi for $47.50 with free overnight shipping at Endless.  The clear illusion detail on the front of these definitely makes for an interesting look.

Update: I had to add this pair, the Jessica Simpson Vadio in deep purple.  It’s been sold out everywhere in this colorblock version, but is currently available at Envishoes for $98.95 (sold out).

Update 2: OMG – check this one out!  The Senso Diffusion Sahara for $198 at Karmaloop.  Get 15% off $75 or more with coupon code MADNE55 through 3/31/11.

More shoes seen at the 2010 MTV VMAs + similar looks for less

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

 

Everyone knows that the MTV Video Music Awards are just as much about the fashion as they are about the music – the two literally go hand in hand. After finding one of the shoes Chelsea Handler wore while hosting the show, I’ve continued to check out more shoe styles seen on celebs at the event. Of course, Lady Gaga had to outdo everyone in the most outrageous way possible by wearing a dress and shoes made of real meat:

This is definitely a statement-making choice (to say the least), but one that I doubt anyone will want to emulate for themselves.  If you do want to get the look, see this MTV Style article for details on how they were created and consult with your local butcher (and, please, send pictures!).  In addition to wearing beef, Gaga wore the iconic Alexander McQueen armadillo shoes (pictured, top), the same style featured in her Bad Romance video, which won Video of the Year.

There isn’t anything quite like the McQueen heels, but these Senso Neve shoes in snake are a real-life alternative to get that edgy, Gaga-esque style for less.  They are also a look-alike for the Acne Admire, as I found on Nitrolicious.  Get them on pre-order for $199.95 at Solestruck.

While I do enjoy watching Gaga and her wild fashion choices, there were other stars wearing much more wearable shoes that we could all potentially rock in real life – that is, if we have the cash flow for the pricey designer brands they opt for.  That’s why I’ve also found some similar, but less expensive alternatives for those who love the looks seen at the VMAs, but need something more affordable.  Let’s check it out:

 

 

Selena Gomez wore a gorgeous silver dress and kept the metallic theme going head-to-toe with her silver Brian Atwood Kendall shoes.  I can’t find these available for sale online, but here are a couple options for less:

 

Charles by Charles David Risque (left) for $47.25 at 6pm and the Chinese Laundry Fire It Up (right) for $49.99 at Dillards.

 

 

 

Hayley Williams of Paramore wore the Miu Miu Spectator Pump, available at Bergdorf Goodman for $650.  Save some money and get a similar look with these shoes:

Samanta Amay for $199.95 with free overnight shipping at Endless.

 

 

Audrina Patridge opted for the Balmain Metallic Rhinestone Pump, which is available at Barneys for $2,300.  Get something much less pricey with these shoes:

Michael Antonio Reza for $98.95 at Shoebuy.  Coupon code EMLFALLKICKOFF10 takes 20% off for a limited time, making them $79.16 with free shipping.  But, there are a few sizes at Amazon for only $47.98 with free shipping.

JWoww of Jersey Shore sported a more toned-down look than usual, which looks good on her, and I’m definitely loving the shoes.  I think these are Jimmy Choo, although I couldn’t locate the exact pair.  But, here’s a sparkly option for less:

Enzo Angiolini Merryann for $79.95 at Nordstrom.

Update: It looks like she could be wearing the Jimmy Choo Crown, which is $695 at Saks:

Or, possibly, the Enzo Angiolini Sully for $88.95 at Nordstrom:

 

Here’s another lookalike without a peep toe, the Enzo Angiolini Smiles, which is also sold at Nordstrom:

Twighlight’s Ashley Greene and singer Kei$ha both wore closed-toe black patent pumps to the VMA’s.  I’m not sure of the designer for either of these shoes, but here’s a similar pair for an affordable price:

Aldo Moos for $80 at Aldo.com.

Any more shoes from the VMAs you want to know about?  Let me know and I’ll do my best to find them!
