Charles David Ladylike lace heels from $54.99

Monday, April 12th, 2010

My love affair with lace heels, most recently expressed in my post about the Betsey Johnson Alison corset bootie, continues with the Charles by Charles David Ladylike.  It comes in black or champagne/black and I think I’m liking the champagne version slightly better because the color contrast makes the lace stand out more; however, you can’t deny the draw of solid black.  While the Alison is more dramatic, I have to admit that these would likely be more versatile and the price is more affordable too.  The best deal I’ve found is for the black version at Overstock, where they are $54.99 with $2.95 shipping.  There’s only a few sizes left, so another option is 6pm, where both the champagne and black versions are available for $62.50 (MSRP $125).  Shipping adds $6.95.  As an added bonus, this shoe applies the feminine, romantic shoe trend we’ve been hearing about for spring.

More or Less: Yves Saint Laurent eel skin shoes & eel shoes for less

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

These $836 Yves Saint Laurent Divine eel platform pumps from Farfetch are certainly divine, as their given name suggests.  I’ve had a thing for eel ever since I was a young girl and my grandmother Millie, who was very elegant and had great taste, gifted me with a small, beautiful tan eel purse, which felt like pure luxury to me.  While eel skin may not be the most common leather people wear on their shoes, it is one of the most exotic and tends to impart an instant air of sophistication when worn.  It can also be quite expensive.  But, wearing eel shoes doesn’t have to break the bank.  Let’s take a look at a few gorgeous, but expensive, eel heels from YSL and some lower-priced eel shoes that provide all of the indulgence, but none of the guilt:

More: Yves Saint Laurent Eelskin Pump in chalk from the Cruise 2010 Collection for $775 at Nordstrom.

Less: RSVP Cassidy genuine eel pump in sand for $68.04 at Zappos.

Less: The RSVP Cassidy is also available in brown eel at Zappos for $62.72.

More: Yves Saint Laurent Eelskin Pump in coral from the Cruise 2010 Collection for $775 at Nordstrom.

Less: Moda Spana Simone eel pump in camel, dark brown or wine for $44.28 at 6pm.  Also available in very limited sizes at Overstock for $49.82.

Less: The Cindy Says Toxic pump, which is made of faux eel skin and has a very unique heel, which is described as “comma inspired” (who knew commas could be inspiring!).  It’s available at Amazon for $71.58 in mustard.  You can also get it in red or black for the same price, but sizes are extremely limited.

I’m also really hoping this Pelle Moda Vintage becomes available again.  It’s at Zappos for $115.08, but only in size 10, and I don’t see them available anywhere else.  If anyone knows where to get them, I need to know!

Betsey Johnson Ricci Boot for $50 at Overstock

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

Get the fierce leopard version of this Betsey Johnson Ricci boot for a super-low price right now at Overstock.  It retails for $179, but was marked down to $111 at the time of this previous mention in January.  Now it’s reduced even further to just $50, which is a pretty nice deal considering the next lowest price I could find at any other store was more than twice as much.  Sizes are limited and shipping adds $2.95.

Update 3/26: It’s now marked down to an even lower $44.99.

Gabriella Rocha Molly Pump for $27.82 at Overstock

Friday, February 6th, 2009

I like these Gabriella Rocha Molly pumps because they are red and the crochet flower detail is really cute, but I also like that they exude style in a more laid back kind of way – kind of boho-glam.  Plus, they are only $27.82 at Overstock, which is definitely a great price.  An olive green version is also available.  Shipping adds $2.95.

Unlisted Club Style Mary Jane for $27.99 at Overstock

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

If you need to add a bit of sass to your work wardrobe, try adding this Unlisted by Kenneth Cole Club Style pump to the mix.  The plaid print and oxford patent detailing on this shoe make it look distinguished, but the double mary jane strap and high heel keep it fun.  Overstock has this style in dark brown for $27.99 and shipping adds $2.95.
