Halloween costumes shoes that rock (just like candy corn)

Sunday, October 11th, 2009

Halloween is just around the corner and, let’s face it, it’s still way fun to dress-up on the big day, even as adults.  If you plan on going all-out this Halloween by donning a costume, the shoes you wear can certainly make or break your look.  You may have the perfect costume, but you’ll also need the perfect Halloween shoes to really set it off.  Some closet staples, like tall black boots or black mary jane heels usually work well, but you might want to take it up a notch and wear a costume shoe you wouldn’t normally wear in everyday life.  Even if you don’t plan to dress in costume, you can always wear shoes that channel your inner Halloween spirit.  So, let’s get in character and take a look at the shoes:

Argh, matey!  These Leg Avenue boots are the perfect pirate shoes.  They also have great potential for renaissance and medieval looks.  Get them for $68.95 with free shipping at Shoebuy, then apply 20% off coupon code COLUMBUS to drop them to $55.16.  Coupon expiration is unknown, but likely ends 10/12/09.


Planning to be a pretty Pocahantas?  Get these Indian Halloween costume shoes with fringe for $32.93 with free shipping at Amazon.  Or, go for a flat with this Wanted Fringe Sandal for $19.99 at Delias.



Cute little elf costumes need this Funtasma elf boot with curled toe and decorative silver balls hanging from the top.  This would also work well for fairies or Robin Hood-themed styles.  The green pair is $50.90 with free shipping at Amazon.  It’s also available in red or black for various prices depending on your selection.


Sailing the high seas this Halloween?  You’ll definitely need an appropriate pair of sailor shoes, like these Blue Sailor Heels from Hot Topic for $32.99.  If you’re logged in to your Hot Topic account, get 20% off with coupon code WELCOME.  Amazon also has the Leg Avenue Matey Pump starting at $36.89.



Princesses, angels and other girly costumes need a sparkly heel to complete the look.  This silver glitter heel is $26.99 at BuyCostumes.  For Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz shoes, check out the red glitter heel at Amazon for $39.95 with free shipping.



If you’ll be a naughty little devil this year, try the Funtasma devil shoe in red for $21.95 at Amazon.  A black version is also available for $17.55.



Potential witches might instead opt for this Ellie pointed toe pump with buckle, which is $30.16 in black or red at Amazon.  This witch platform oxford is also a good choice at $26.35.  Shipping is free.



Feel the buzz when you wear this pair with your busy bumblebee costume.  Get the bumblebee mary jane at Amazon for $33.37 with free shipping. 



If a ladybug is your insect costume of choice, try the Pleaser ladybug mary jane.  Find it at Amazon for $31.59 (most sizes) with free shipping.



Channel your inner diva in these Funtasma goddess heels at Amazon starting at $41.70.  These will also work for Cleopatra costumes, gladiators, toga outfits and more.  A flat goddess sandal is available at Sears for $18.99.



A naughty school girl or sexy scottish outfit just wouldn’t be complete without plaid, like this plaid mary jane pump.  Get it for $24.99 at Charlotte Russe.  10% off and free shipping are yours with their OCTOBER1 coupon code.


Cowgirls, add a little bling to your boot with this metallic cowboy boot from Wet Seal for $42.50.  If you prefer something a bit more classic, try this cowboy boot in cognac or dark brown for $44.50.  Get free shipping on $15 or more using coupon code FREE09 at checkout.


Pretty kitty costumes seem much more complete with a sexy leopard platform heel.  This extra-high 6″ pair is $59.99 at Hot Topic.  If you’re logged in to your Hot Topic account, get 20% off with coupon code WELCOME.  Another option is this Penthouse leopard heel for $44.99.


If you’re still not sure which shoes will work, go for the go-go boot.  This style works with virtually any costume and is available in 13 color options at Amazon, so you’re sure to find the perfect shade.  Most size/color combinations are $33.04 with free shipping.


Here’s some more shoes you can wear to get into the Halloween mood, costume or not.

Shoe Buzz: Fergie rocks neon shoes + one of her own styles

Sunday, March 29th, 2009

*Update* This post is from 2009.  See the latest posts on neon shoes for more.

Fergie created some buzz recently at the 34th Annual March of Dimes Beauty Ball with her newly dark hair and her super-bright neon orange and black Jimmy Choo Loop sandals.  The look is certainly edgy and totally rock ‘n’ roll, so it begs the question: Is neon emerging as a trend once again this year? People Style Watch says yes – they list neon as one of the top spring trends in their March 2009 edition.  Even so, some people may shy away from neon because of its potential to go terribly wrong (like those squint-inducing 80’s get-ups), but the look can also be oh-so-right (like this hot style from Mary-Kate Olsen last year).  The trick to wearing neon, as you’ve probably heard before, is to keep it minimal and pair it with neutrals to avoid color overkill.  Think black, white and tan with a pop of bright neon for maximum impact.  If you’re ready to work this trend, here are some hot-hued styles to try:

Left to right: Guess Innocent for $109.95 at Zappos, Davis by Ruthie Davis Pixel for $235.48 at Amazon, Luichiny Que for $112 at after 20% off ENTSHOES09 coupon code, Farylrobin Poppy Platform for $229.95 at Endless, Rocket Dog Neon Sandal for $29.50 at Delias after $10 off DXCGIFT coupon code (exp. 3/31), Wet Seal Patent Buckle Sandal for $12.50 at Wet Seal, Guess Carrie for $73.60 at after ENTSHOES09 coupon code or at for $90 (additional sizes in yellow) or at for $84.99, DV by Dolce Vita Damsel for $66.95 at Amazon

In related shoe news, Fergie was spotted wearing one of her own styles, the Fergie Pepper Platform Sandal, at a Nordstrom event to promote her shoe line.  This is a hot style that you can find at Nordstrom, but also at for a better price.  They have it for $129, but it’s reduced to $103.20 after using coupon code ENTSHOES09 at checkout.  Shipping is free and other color options include purple and brown.

Shoe Buzz: Pink shoes inspired by Barbie for her 50th birthday

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

She’s come a long way, baby!  Barbie turned 50 this month and, I have to say, 50 must be the new 20 because she looks as fab as ever.  When we think of Barbie, we think fashion – in the no holds barred, all-out glam kind of way.  For this milestone birthday, everyone’s been inspired by Barbie, including the likes of Christian Louboutin and many other designers.  Barbie and I go way back, so I had to jump in on the action and find some of my own Barbie-inspired shoes, in pink of course:

Betsey Johnson Fran This girly sandal has pink shimmer, a big pink bow and it’s from Betsey Johnson, who often epitomizes classic Barbie style (Barbie’s runway show this year for NY Fashion week featured this Betsey Johnson dress).  What more can I say?  Get this pair at 6pm for $93.60, which is about 50% off retail.  Shipping adds $6.95. 


Carlos by Carlos Santana Accolade  Here’s another gorgeous shimmery shoe, but this one is a platform slingback style in a whisper soft shade of pink.  This ultra-feminine pair is available at for $110.  Use coupon code MSAVE (exp. 3/31/09) to get another 20% off, making it $88 with free shipping.   


Delias Nyla Jelly Heel  Barbie is all about the jelly shoes, so this pair reminds me a lot of actual shoes she’s worn over the years (like this one for example).  Delias offers this heel for $34.50.  Get $10 more dollars off when you apply coupon code DXCGIFT (exp 3/31/09) at checkout, making them $24.50 and ideal for those days when we all want to feel like a doll.  


oh…DEER! Gelato Barbie is never afraid to add some sparkle to her look, so this would likely be one of her favorite pairs.  It’s totally pink with tons of sequins and it’s also on sale, which is always a plus.  Onlineshoes has it marked down from $129.95 to $89.99 with free shipping.


Report Gala Heel  This is a super-hot pump that I imagine Barbie would wear on one of her many dates with Ken.  After 50 years of dating and only one breakup (remember that?), I imagine she still likes to dress up pretty for Ken and he would certainly appreciate this saucy pink pair.  Get it for yourself at Zappos for $135, marked down from $195.  Shipping is free. 


Wet Seal Zipper Front Heel  Barbie loves to shop, but I’m sure she also loves a good deal.  Get a trendy and affordable Barbie-esqe shoe with this strappy fuschia pair, which features zipper detail.  Wet Seal has it for $26.50 and coupon code ENT0809 yields free shipping.


Boutique Nordstrom Tally Espadrille  Barbie has to have a super-cute pink wedge for all those parties and barbeques she throws out by her Barbie pool, so I think she’d approve of this adorable ruffled and bowed style from Nordstrom.  It’s $59.95 and shipping is free when you apply coupon code SHOES at checkout until 4/13/09.

$10 off $25 Delias coupon code

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

Delias offers $10 off any order $25 or more when you apply coupon code DXCGIFT at checkout.  The code works on your choice of regularly-priced or clearance shoes, which start at just $9.99.  Expiration: 3/31/09

dELiAs Mackenzie Boot for $39.99

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

I really like the bold blue leather on these dELiAs Mackenzie Boots, which are on clearance for $39.99 at dELiAs (originally $89.50).  I imagine they would look great worn with a more understated outfit in black, gray or white to make the blue really stand out.  Pull it all together by adding one more accessory that has some blue in it, like a scarf or handbag.  The boots also come in black or silver.  Get free shipping on $25 using coupon code DELCPN until 3/31/09 (a $1.95 handling fee still applies).  If your order is larger, you’ll be better off using 15% off coupon code DXA114B until 2/5/09.
