Sole Boutique Tully with curved heel

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

You may remember my mention of the Chinese Laundry Mod Squad awhile back and my admiration of the unique curvy heel, which you might describe as a teardrop-shaped wedge cutout.  Or, you might call it an “abstract heel”, which is how the shoe pictured above is described.  Whatever you call it, this heel style is now available in a different form: the Sole Boutique Tully, which can be found at Karmaloop.  With this pair, you get the very cool sculptural look of the heel, plus you incorporate one of the hottest trends for fall, which (in case you haven’t noticed) is leopard print.  It’s also nice that this shoe is very affordably priced: Get it for $45 at Karmaloop and score free shipping on new arrivals with coupon code FREERUN through 9/30/11.  More color options are available:

Sole Boutique Tully in black

Sole Boutique Tully in taupe

The Chinese Laundry Mod Squad in turquoise, black or fuschia is also still available at Chinese Laundry for $129.95 with free shipping, although the fuschia color is really low on size selection at this point.

Fun Shoes for Friday: Chinese Laundry Lightning, Mod Squad & Back Seat

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Chinese Laundry always offers plenty of hot shoes, but I’m particularly loving some of their recent arrivals for summer.  The colorful kicks I’m checking out right now definitely strike me as being ready-made for a little weekend play.  The candy-colored cutie pictured above is one of the styles I’m talking about — it’s the Chinese Laundry Lightning for $129.95.  Clearly there are plenty of others loving it too because it’s already close to being sold out, but it’s certainly one to put on the radar for more stock or availability (I don’t see it sold anywhere else at the moment).  But, there are more shoes that caught my eye, so let’s check it out:

The stock photo displayed for the Chinese Laundry Mod Squad definitely doesn’t tell the whole story on this style.  It might easily be overlooked as just a regular patent slingback pump, but you have to check out the side view (and the additional color options):

How cool is that heel??  You also have to see it being worn in some of their promotional shots for the full effect:

So.Loving.It.  These are priced at $129.95.

Then we have these super-stylin’ Chinese Laundry Back Seat booties.  I’m all about a pop of color, so these are totally up my alley.  Get them in blue or pink and rock them out for $149.95.

To save on your order, apply coupon code CL15REG323 to get 15% off regularly-priced shoes through 6/30/11.

Shoes worn by Lauren Alaina on American Idol results show

Friday, April 1st, 2011

American Idol contestant Lauren Alaina wowed the audience this week with her rendition of the Elton John song “Candle In The Wind”, securing her a spot in next week’s Top 9.  Besides having an amazing voice, Lauren also has a really fun sense of style on the show and, if you watched her singing a duet with fellow Idol hopeful Scotty McCreery during the Top 11 Part 2 results episode, you may have taken note of her cute shoes (pictured above from 3/31/11).  She wore a platform wedge with a cutout along the bottom of the heel and a flower embellishment along the side of the ankle strap.  I recognized them as this pair:

This is the Bebe Leah cork wedge sandal in black and you can find them at for $129 with $4.95 for shipping.  They also come in pink or white options.

On a related note, Lauren wore the Chinese Laundry Money Maker during the Elton John performance, as noted on the Chinese Laundry Shoes blog.

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. 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!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Celebrate with green shoes & shoe sales

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

I hope everyone is having a fun, fab St. Patty’s Day and wearing their lucky green!  I rounded up a bunch of cute green shoes previously, but I didn’t know about the Colin Stuart Braided Platform Sandal (above), which has a nice dose of green – a color that gets along quite nicely with black and tan, I must say – and is available at Victoria’s Secret for $78.  If I had known about these in time, I just might be rocking them today.  Even though it’s too late to order some St. Patrick’s Day shoes in green, it’s definitely not too late to save some green.  Avoid getting pinched – in the wallet, that is – with these shoe sales and coupons:

Famous Footwear: 20% off with coupon code LUCKY

Chinese Laundry: 20% off with coupon code 1DAYSALE317

PlanetShoes: 20% off with coupon code 20lucky

4th of July Shoe Sales

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

*Update: This post is from 2010.  Check out 2011 4th of July shoe sales*

It’s 4th of July weekend and time for plenty of fun, but it’s also a great opportunity to save some dough all-American style, especially right now while we’re starting to see big markdowns on summer merchandise.  Independence Day sales are literally everywhere and there are definitely some great shoe sales that have already started, so I thought I would round them up into one big list for anyone who might be shoe shopping this weekend.  I’ll also be updating this list over the next few days anytime I come across more sales and coupons.  So, without further adieu, here’s the rundown of what I’ve seen so far:

American Eagle is having one of their awesome clearance sales right now that also applies to their selection of clearance shoes.  You get an extra 30% off automatically at checkout for a limited time, but then you can also apply coupon code 32944527 to get another 20% off (expiration unknown).  That makes for some super-low prices on their selection of flats, flat sandals and sneakers, like the AE Grommet Sandal (pictured above) that’s on sale for $19.95 and drops to just $11.17 after the code.  Availability can be limited for some styles, so it’s best to shop by size in the top right to narrow it down.  Shipping adds $7, but it’s free if you buy 3 or more items until 7/5/10. is also having a sale on a sale and it takes an additional 50% off already-reduced items.  Browse their women’s sale shoes and, if you see something you like, you’ll see the price slashed in half at checkout.  I like the femininity exuding from the Guess Journ, which features eyelet cutouts and a corset-like lace-up detail on the back.  It’s available for $89.99 in black or white, but the price is reduced to $45 after the discount.  If you spend $100, get free shipping with coupon code FREESHIP100 for a limited time.  The sale expiration is unknown, but it’s likely for the upcoming holiday weekend only.

If you’ve got your mind set on a pair of Chinese Laundry shoes for less, shop and get 30% off any sale shoes when you apply coupon code CL30SALE at checkout.  Make a dramatic statement in the Chinese Laundry Slippery Slope, which has a mix of exotic patterns.  They’re marked down to $69.99 (regularly $119) in black or brown and, after the code, they’ll be yours for $48.99.  The code expires 7/12/10.

80’s Purple offers cutting edge shoe brands like 80%20, Dolce Vita, Industry, Report and more and you can get an additional 25% off your purchase with coupon code fireworks during their Red, White & Purple Sale.  The Dolce Vita Niko wedge in black or brown is priced at $172, but it falls to $129 after the code.  The sale expires 7/5/10.

Shoemall is having a Fourth of July shoe sale and it takes 20% off your purchase via code JULY4.  It applies to regularly-priced items only and shipping is also free.  If you’ve had a gold glitter pump on the brain since Sex and the City 2, you might like the Steve Madden Caryssa platform pump.  It’s $129.95 before the code and $103.96 after.  The coupon expires 7/6/10.

Steve Madden is taking 40% off clearance shoes when you apply coupon code 40CLEARANCE at checkout.  Get a nice price on a clog with plenty of edge, the Steven by Steve Madden Durann, which is so on-trend and marked down from $149.95 to $99.99.  After the coupon, get them for $59.99 in black, brown or red.  The coupon expires 7/11/10.

Koh’s has a new coupon that takes 20% off any purchase, including shoes.  Enter TOPSECRET during checkout to get the discount, which you can even apply to Skechers Shape-Ups (just tested it and it worked).  The Skechers Shape-Ups Action Packed High-Performance Shoes are on sale for $99.99 (originally $109.95), but they are $79.99 after the code, which expires 7/4/10.  Update: This code is now expired, but use code JULYSAVE for 15% off until 7/11/10.

Bloomingdales is having a sale that takes 25% to 40% off select items, including women’s shoes.  On top of that, get another 15% off when you use coupon code SAVE15 in the shopping cart.  I checked it the sale and there’s definitely plenty of low prices going on, but one in particular is the Corso Como Notable studded wedge.  It’s already marked down from $159 to $59.62, but it goes even lower to $50.68 after the coupon, which expires 7/5/10.

More sales & coupons for shoes:

Lord & Taylor: Buy more and save more on select sandals: 30% off one pair, 35% off two and 40% off three.  If the shoes you want don’t qualify for this discount, get 20% off regular, sale and clearance items instead with coupon code JULY4 until 7/5/10.  Some exclusions apply.

Shoebuy: 20% off with coupon code JULY4 and free shipping.

Macy’s: Extra 25% off clearance shoes (prices reflect discount) and free shipping on $99 or more with coupon code FIREWORKS until 7/5/10.

Shoesteal: Extra 20% off with coupon code JULY4 until 7/5/10.

6pm: Select Gabriella Rocha shoes for $19.95 or less and more brand sales.

Nine West: 50% off select styles, plus an additional 20% off if you buy any 2 pairs.  Discounts show at checkout.

Kenneth Cole: Select shoes get an additional 40-50% off at checkout.  Eligible items are marked with the discount amount.  The sale expires 7/8 at 3 am ET.

Aldo: Extra 20% off women’s sale pumps, shoes and boots (excludes sandals).  The discount is already applied to the product price.

That’s all for now, but be sure to check back for more shoes sales for the 4th!

25% off Chinese Laundry Drastic & Haughty + more shoes

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

Chinese Laundry has an extra-good coupon available right now for use at, so it’s a good time to buy if you’ve been eyeing a pair from this brand.  Get 25% off any cute shoes they offer when you apply coupon code CLFAMILY610 at checkout.  That makes the Chinese Laundry Haughty in black (pictured above) drop from $89 to $66.75.  Of course, we love the versatility of black shoes, but a pop of bright color always goes a long way.  I’m finding the rainbow of color options available in this style quite cheerful (and tempting):

Of note, if you like the blue version, you can get them for less at 6pm for $53.40 and at Alloy for $49.99, but not many sizes are left.  Amazon has black and blue for $60.35.

I’m also checking out the Chinese Laundry Drastic wedge (pictured below), which comes in zebra, leopard, black, white or gold for $69.  After the coupon, you can get them for $51.75.

The coupon expires 6/14/10.
