Spring shoes that POP in neon

Friday, April 6th, 2012

With all of the bold color we’re seeing this season (which I was just discussing in my multicolor shoes post), it makes perfect sense that neon has once again emerged as a trend for spring and summer.  If you’re a lover of these ultra-bright hues, it’s not that you have to wait for them to be deemed trendy to wear them, but it does mean there are a lot more options to pick from.  And since neon packs a serious punch, a little goes a long way for making a bold statement; thus, wearing a pop of neon with your shoes is a particularly ideal way to apply the trend with ease.  I personally like the look of shoes in neutral shades, like taupe, combined with just enough neon to amp things up, like what you see with the Enzo Angiolini Timga pictured above.  It’s available for $120 at Endless and there’s also a neon pink version with a dark natural upper.  Here are some more of my current faves in fluorescent shades:

Vince Camuto Deric with bright yellow heel for $115 with free shipping at Amazon. Also available at Dillards.

Jessica Simpson Shavon colorblock heels with neon pink for $97.95 with free shipping at OnlineShoes.  Get $20 off $90, which drops the price on these to $77.95, using coupon code 20BLOOM through 4/30/12.

Ann Taylor Cheri in Caliente Coral for $178 at Ann Taylor.  Get 30% off with coupon code SPRING30 (expiration unknown).

Steve Madden Aaria in neon yellow on preorder for $149.95 at Steve Madden.  Coupon code MUSTHAVE25 takes 25% off $150 and gives free shipping through 4/10/12.  A pink version is also available.

Qupid Neutral neon green heels for $26.99 at Tilly’s.

Charlotte Russe neon wedge in pink or yellow on sale for $25 at Charlotte Russe.

Pour La Victoire Taryn in neon yellow for $189.99 with free shipping at Piperlime or $265 with free shipping at Endless.  It also comes in neon pink.

Fergie Protest in green for $69.95 with free shipping at Zappos.  It also comes in pink, yellow, and more color options.

Charlotte Russe neon orange heels for $30 at Charlotte Russe.  These shoes are eligible for their Buy 1, get 2nd for $12.50 promotion, as are these cute neon flats they offer.

Sole Boutique Posh Dynamo neon flats with spikes for $33 at Karmaloop.  They also come in neon yellow for $46. Update: Also available at Urban Originals for $33.50.

Have a fun weekend and a wonderful Easter!

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion Shoes – Red heels on Brandi, Gold glitter heels on Adrienne & more

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

We’re right in the midst of an extra juicy reunion for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 2, having finished two parts of the three part special.  The drama on the show was on a rolling boil all season long and, I must say, it was pretty riveting.  After all is said and done, the ladies have plenty of serious issues to hash out on the reunion but I, for one, am here to talk about the shoes.  Yes, there’s never a shortage of hot designer heels on a Housewives reunion, that’s for sure.  That’s why we’re going to check out what they wore and, if your feeling inspired by something you see, but not by an out-of-range price tag, I also found some similar, but much more affordable styles as options for getting the look for less.  Let’s check it out:

On one side of the room at the reunion, we have (from left) Brandi Glanville, Camille Grammar, and Lisa Vanderpump.  They all really brought it in the shoe department, but I have to give props to Brandi for her royal blue strapless dress with bright red pumps – I love the color combination.  I mean, Eddie Cibrian, who?  Looking gorgeous on a hot TV show is the best revenge, I must say.

It’s hard to go wrong with a spicy red heel and it looks like she is wearing this YSL Trib Too in red patent, which can be found at ysl.com for $795.

For a less expensive alternative, try the Audrey Brooke Samantha for $89.95 at DSW.

If you like the combo of red and blue, you’ll appreciate the blue sole on these.

Another option is the Chinese Laundry Whistle in red patent for $69 with free shipping at Endless.  Spend over $100 on eligible styles, including this one, and get 20% off your order in-cart through 2/14/12.

Camille Grammar is going through a situation similar to Brandi’s after ex Kelsey Grammar left her for another woman, but she seems to be doing just fine.  It was said at the reunion that her show got higher ratings than Kelsey’s show (ooh, burn), she has a younger new man in her life, and she looks fab in her red dress and sparkly Christian Louboutin Lady Peep pumps.  The shoes pictured above are the $4,195 crystal version offered at the official Christian Louboutin site.

For something similar, try the Enzo Angiolini Show You for $160 at Bloomingdales.

On to Lisa Vanderpump, who said she was wearing Giuseppe Zanotti when asked about her shoes at the reunion.  She is wearing the Giuseppe Zanotti Crystallized Suede Platform Slingback, available for $1,370 at Neiman Marcus.  These are AH-mazing, but for something less expensive with a similar look, see the Enzos above or this slingback style:

Perugia 12643 for $69.30 with free shipping at Endless.  Spend over $100 on qualifying styles, including this pair, and save 20% at checkout through 2/14/12.

If you love the ultra happy multi-color version of the Zanottis (pictured left) as much as I do, I came across a closer look-alike for that particular style.  The Sole Obsession Berne (pictured right) isn’t dripping in Swarovski and doesn’t have the coveted Giuseppe Zanotti name, but it does have a similar mix of colors with added sparkle via rhinestones and it’s much more affordably priced at $89.95 at DSW.  There is a black/turquoise/purple version available as well.

On to the other side of the room with (from right) Adrienne Maloof, Taylor Armstrong, and Kyle Richards.

Adrienne Maloof is wearing a style from her Adrienne Maloof by Charles Jourdan shoe line.  Adrienne’s shoes were once available only at Issay.com, but they are also now available at Belk, where this particular style is exclusively sold.   It’s the Adrienne Maloof Shaun Pump and you can get it for $235 in gold or black.

 

Of course, you may also be wondering about the Vander Pump, a style Lisa Vanderpump created with shoe designer Ryan Haber and the pink heels her daughter Pandora wore on her wedding day.  They were available for pre-order back when the season premiered, as discussed here, but I don’t see them available for sale online right now.  However, those interested in this shoe can see the Ryan Haber site for more info.

There was a little controversy at the reunion over Adrienne and Lisa’s respective shoes when it was brought up that Lisa had previously referred to Adrienne’s shoes as “Maloof Hoof” and then she went on to say it meant “fat little shoe”.  Now, perhaps she was trying to be funny and there are certainly bigger issues going on with the cast than this, but I can see why Adrienne would be a bit miffed about it.

Now, if it were these shoes, I’d totally get it.

Ok, moving on to Taylor Armstrong, who is wearing lovely nude mary jane platform pumps that definitely look YSL, but I couldn’t find a pic of the exact pair.  I do, however, have some look-alikes:

Patent Mary Jane Platform Pump at Charlotte Russe for $30, but on sale for $25 for a limited time.

Sergio Zelcer Wood Platform Pump in tan with red sole for $121.88 with free shipping at Endless.  Spend over $100 on qualifying styles, including this pair, and save 20% at checkout through 2/14/12.

Promise Goodness tan mary jane with blue sole for $37 at LuLus.

Finally, we have Kyle Richards wearing those signature studs on the Valentino Rockmance, which is available at Neiman Marcus for $895.  I couldn’t find anything that looks all that close to this pair, but these more affordable shoes have some similar features:

Jeffrey Campbell Midler for $112.95 at Loris Shoes.

Betsey Johnson Majestee for $110.99 with free shipping at Endless.  Spend over $100 on eligible styles, including this one, and get 20% off your order in-cart through 2/14/12.

That’s all I have for now, but looking forward to part 3: Andy’s big talk with Kim.

Weekend Shoe Sales: Flip Flops, FitFlops, ToneUps & more

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010

You may plan on buying some shoes this weekend, but you can also make your piggy bank happy in the process.  I’ve rounded up some shoe shopping discounts that will put a smile on your face and keep your little piggy nice and full, metaphorically speaking.  Here’s what I found:

Piperlime is having their Sweet Deal Event that takes up to 30% off a selection of women’s shoes.  There are plenty of styles to choose from, but I noticed a good price on the FitFlop Walkstar in red, which is on sale for $28.50 with free shipping (regularly $50).  That’s practically in Cheap Chick territory (i.e. under $25).  The sale ends 5/30/10.

Old Navy has a selection of cheap flip flops for throwing on at the pool or beach (or anywhere else for that matter). Their classic flops are normally $3.50, but for a limited time you can get 2 pairs for $4 or choose from select colors that are $1.49 a pair.  There are also additional styles listed on this page that are 2 for $5.  If you plan to spend at least $75 on your order, get 15% off and free shipping with coupon code ONCAMP15 until 5/23/10.  There’s also a similar deal at American Eagle.  Buy any pair of shorts and get a select pair of flip flops for $1 for a limited time.

6pm is having their latest round of brand-specific shoe sales, including MIA shoes for up to 65% off, I like the cute fringe MIA Hannah pump, which is marked down to $24.68 (MSRP $73).  The sale expires 5/23/10.

Famous Footwear takes an additional 20% off any order, even sale shoes, when you use coupon code USWEEKLY at checkout.  I noticed that their Skechers Tone-Ups, which are similar to the FitFlop, are discounted to a super-low price.  Originally $54.99, the Skechers Cali Tone-Ups are on sale for $29.99 and reduced even further to $23.99 after applying the code.  The coupon expires 5/31/10.

Shoesteal always has great discounts on shoes and you can get an even better price when you apply coupon code SUNSTEAL for another 15% off.  I noticed some heavily discounted L.A.M.B. shoes, like the L.A.M.B. Gypsy for $142.80 (originally $356.99).  After the code, get them for $121.38.  Sizes are limited for most styles, but you can check out all of their L.A.M.B. shoes and choose your size at the top to narrow it down to what’s available for you. The coupon expires 6/30/10.

More shoes coupons & sales:

25% off and free shipping at Shoebuy with code EMAILFRIENDS10 until 5/23/10.

20% off and free shipping at Shoes.com with code VISA until 10/31/10.

Buy 1 pair of shoes, get the 2nd pair for $15 at Charlotte Russe.

15% off regular prices and 20% off sale and clearance with code BIG at Lord & Taylor.

Happy shoe shopping!

Message from Princess: St. Patrick’s Day shoe sales

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

Happy St. Patty’s Day to everyone!  Today may be the day to wear green or possibly eat or drink something of that color, but you can definitely save some green too.  The buzzword for the day seems to be “Lucky you” because I’m seeing it everywhere – accompanied by a nice discount, of course.  Here are some of the sales I’ve seen:

Macy’s started a new sale today that takes an extra 15% off shoe purchases automatically at checkout.  They are also having a buy 1 pair, get 25% off the second sale on shoes marked as eligible.  These two sales combine, so you’ll see both discounts at checkout on qualifying items.  You also get free shipping on shoe purchase $75 or more with coupon code NEWSHOES until 3/29/10.  Some exclusions apply.

DSW invites you to press your luck and get 15%, 30% or even 50% off at checkout.  To get the discount, add the items you want to your cart, log in to your DSW account and you’ll see your lucky savings at checkout.  Their site appears to be down at the moment, but hopefully that will be fixed very soon.  Expires 3/17/10. 

Update 3/18/10: DSW issued coupon code UNLUCKY today in response to the technical difficulties they experienced.  The code takes $10 off any order until 3/19/10.  It excludes Skechers Shape-ups and Reebok Easy Tones.

Shoemall is taking 20% off orders today 3/17/10 only using coupon code SHAMROCK at checkout.  However, there’s an even sweeter coupon code MISSU30 that takes 30% off until 3/21/10.  The codes apply to sale items too, but some brand exclusions apply.  The Naughty Monkey Fiesta in black or purple goes from $79.95 to $55.97 after the 30% off code.

Shoebuy is having a St. Patrick’s Day sale that takes 20% off any order using coupon code GREEN at checkout.  The coupon expires 3/17/10.

Kenneth Cole takes a generous 40% off at checkout today and shipping is free on $50 or more.  Items that qualify for the discount are marked on the product page.

Charlotte Russe is having a buy 1 pair of shoes, get 50% off the second sale until 3/21/10.  If you don’t plan on purchasing two pairs, use coupon code LUCKYCJ to get 25% off any order 3/17/10 only.  These two discounts don’t combine.

Nordstrom is still offering free shipping on shoes using coupon code SHOES at checkout until 4/12/10.  While not technically a St. Patty’s Day sale, I had to mention that the Naughty Monkey Me O My in black and white is now on sale for just $34.90 with free shipping using the code.  You can also get in in blue.  Another good deal I noticed: The Steve Madden Loyyall for $44.90 with free shipping.

Have a very lucky day!

Hot Shoe Trends Spring 2010: Turquoise shoes

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

Pantone, a company considered the global authority on color for the design industry, recently announced the Color of the Year for 2010.  They say turquoise is the new “it” color – specifically a shade they call Pantone 15-5519.

According to Pantone, turquoise combines “the serene qualities of blue and the invigorating aspects of green” and “evokes thoughts of soothing, tropical waters and a languorous, effective escape from the everyday troubles of the world, while at the same time restoring our sense of wellbeing.”  I’m not sure exactly how they decide on the color of the year, but I have to say this is one shade I can really get behind.  I absolutely love turquoise and it certainly works wonders paired with neutrals like black, brown and white.  An excellent example that comes to mind is Eva Mendes at the Golden Globes in her white Dior gown and turquoise necklace, which surely inspired many to break out their own turquoise jewelry.  But, you can also get creative and mix it up with bolder colors like red (another combo I love) and Pantone says it’s “especially trend-setting with yellow-greens.”  Making a fashion statement with turquoise is particularly easy to do with shoes, which can add just the right dose of fresh color to your look.  So, if you want to get a jump-start on this trend (in various shades), check these pairs out:

Luichiny Gim Me sandal for $79.95 with free overnight shipping at Endless

Charlotte Russe Starburst Pump for $34.99 at Charlotterusse.com

Poetic Licence Holiday Delight in blue for $128.95 at Shoebuy.  Get 20% off with coupon code SHOP and free shipping.

Jeffrey Campbell Downtown Bootie for $139.95 at Nordstrom

Chinese Laundry Colette for $59 at Chineselaundry.com.  Coupon code CL-FAST gives free shipping, which saves $9.50.

Nine West Malynn in limited sizes for $29.95 at 6pm until 12/27/09

Charles by Charles David Turvy for $135 at Shoes.com.  Get 20% off with coupon code ENJOY09, making them $108 with free shipping.

Naughty Monkey Steve’s Delight 2 Boot for $39.98 with free shipping at Amazon.  They are also on clearance for $54.97 with free standard shipping at Endless.  Sizes are getting limited at both places.

Miss Me Valenti-2 for $22.68 at Amazon

Get the previously mentioned turquiose/yellow-green combo with the Anne Klein Euphony 3.  It’s $78.95 with free shipping at Shoebuy and coupon code SHOP takes another 20% off.

Update: Another option that leans more towards green than blue is the previously mentioned Seychelles Scallop heel at Urban Outfitters, also known as the Seychelles Tippy Toes at Karmaloop.  Get 30% off at Karmaloop with coupon code 30HAM (exp. unknown) and 10% off at Urban Outfitters with coupon code supersorry through 12/24/09.  Urban Outfitters only has one size left, but the price at Karmaloop is much better at $70 after coupon.
