Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

Cheap Chick hopes everyone had a fantastic Easter weekend because she sure did!  Easter is a particularly special time for this bargain-hunting chick because it’s the anniversary of when she broke out of her shell, literally.  And though she’s been a perpetual spring chicken ever since, it still holds a special place in her heart.  That’s why her mission to find cute spring shoes under $25 becomes even stronger around this time of year.  For this go around, she found plenty of brand name casual shoes that work well for all of those warm weather outdoor activities you may have up your sleeve, but there’s a few heels thrown in for good measure.  Here’s what Cheap Chick has for today:

Shoe Buzz: Olsen twins on Good Morning America for Olsenboye launch at JCPenney

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen appeared on Good Morning America today to talk about the full launch of their affordable JCPenney line Olsenboye, which includes apparel, handbags and shoes.  Olsenboye was announced in October ’09 and a limited selection of items were available by November, but today marks the full rollout of the line, which is targeted primarily at juniors.  On Good Morning America, the twins discussed the collection and models were on hand to show some looks.  Of course, I’m primarily interested in the shoes:

Mary-Kate and Ashley partnered with Steve Madden to produce the shoes and handbags in the line.  The looks are definitely youthful and I’m a bit out of that teen demographic, but I’m definitely feeling these shoes, which were featured on the show:

The adorable Olsenboye Madeline comes in black or blush and they’re on sale for $44.99, reduced from $60.  Coupon code URBUDS2 takes another 20% off until 2/8/10, making them just $35.99.

Here is the Olsenboye flat seen on the show:

The suede Olsenboye Sweetie is available in black, pink or yellow for $50.  The coupon code above takes another $10 off, making them $40.

They also feature a pair of jazz shoes, which I don’t see available, and a black boot.  It doesn’t appear the exact boot is available either, but this combat boot is for sale:

The Olsenboye Hailey is marked down to $49.99 from $100.  The coupon code above makes them $39.99.

This pair wasn’t featured on the show, but they are another really cute option from the line:

Olsenboye Sofia in black or pink for $34.99, reduced from $60.  The coupon code drops the price to $27.99.

For more on Olsenboye, check out the line at JCPenney, watch the Good Morning America segment with the Olsen twins or visit

Feeling icy? Get cozy in these cute slippers from $4.99

Friday, January 8th, 2010

It’s been pretty chilly here lately and, although I don’t like cold weather all that much, I’ve definitely been enjoying the rare bout of snow we received in my area – just enough for my husband and 4-year old to craft these cute mini snowmen.  Plus, when temperatures drop, I have to admit it’s nice to hole up in the house and get super-warm and cozy in front of our fireplace, donning my new Snuggie (thanks Mom and Dad!) and, of course, slippers.  Slippers are fun because you don’t wear them in public, so you can go all-out and be really playful with them or you can stick with a classic pair with a bit of stylish flair.  Whatever you prefer, I’ve found some slipper options that will do the job right.  Plus, we’re seeing plenty of good clearance sales, so you can save some serious money too.  Check these out:

Get animalistic in these Kirra Zebra Scuff Slippers on clearance at Pacsun for $9.99.  Get an extra 50% off at checkout, making them a mere $4.99.  Choose from black or pink.

These faux fur slipper booties are $8.99 at Aeropostale.  Coupon code 30JAN takes another 30% off clearance items, making these just $6.29.  Coupon expires 1/10/10.

Slip your feet into luxurious cashmere for less with these J.Jill Cashmere-Blend Slippers.  They are on sale in three color options for $39.99 (regularly $59).  Get another 25% off sale and outlet items at checkout until 1/10/10, making them $29.99.

These cute Knit Ballet Slippers from Lands End are on sale for $29.99 (originally $39.50) in five color options.  You can also save another 10% by using coupon code SAVE10 and PIN 7806 at checkout.  If you prefer a similar style in a mary jane, try their Knit Mary Jane Slippers for the same price.

Make your inner child happy in a pair of animal slippers.  These Aroma Home Ladybug Slippers are $26.95 at Shoebuy and coupon code ACCESS takes another $5 off, making them $21.95.  Other options include bumble bee, frog, pig and poodle.

These may not be the most highly affordable slipper option, but they are highly adorable.  The Giesswein Flower Ballet Slippers are $66 at Garnet Hill.

If you can’t deal with too much heat on the feet, try these Aeropostale Striped Rugby Slippers in red or pink.  These flip flop slippers give your tootsies room to breathe, but they are perfect for slipping on after a bath or shower.  Get them for $14.99 at Aeropostale.

During the current Macy’s One Day Sale, get the Jenni Boot, Peace, Love, Dream Bigfoot Slippers in light pink, dark pink or blue for $11.24.  Or, choose an aqua star or zebra print for the same price.  Not all colors are available in all sizes.  Sale ends 1/9/10.

These American Eagle Aerie Sherpa Slippers in red or pink are marked down to $9.95 at American Eagle.  Coupon code 56079843 takes another 15% off until 1/15/10, making them $8.46.  Shipping is free if you buy three or more items or spend over $100.

The American Eagle Aerie Slipper Socks (Slocks? Slickers?) are marked down to $11.95.  Use the above coupon code to discount your purchase another 15%.

The PJ Couture Minky Bootie is $26 in four color options at JCPenney. Get 15% off with coupon code PCNEWYJC at checkout until 2/1/10.

These Old Navy Fuzzy Slippers in pink, blue or white are just $12.50 at Old Navy.

I hope everyone stays toasty warm!

Shoe Buzz: Olsen twins shoe line for JCPenney

Monday, October 26th, 2009

In another announcement of a celebrity budget line, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are launching a juniors collection called Olsenboye (the twins’ ancestral name) for JCPenney, which will include shoes.  Although the Olsen twins already have higher-end shoe line Elizabeth and James, the JCPenney line will help them reach a different, younger audience and offer a much more wallet-friendly price range of $20-$50. 

The collection, which will also include apparel and accessories, will launch online and in select stores by November and will expand to a full launch by February 2010.  I’m definitely looking forward to seeing the shoes!

More information can be found at or at WWD.

$10 off $10 JCPenney coupon code
