Purple wedding shoes in plum & more shades

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

Since wedding season is upon us, we have plenty of brides looking for the ideal shoes to go along with their dress; thus, we have another bridal-themed Find My Shoes post today!  I received two requests recently from brides-to-be that are both looking for purple shoes for their big day.  First, we have Shannon, who is wearing the beautiful Alfred Angelo Belle dress (pictured above, left) and wants to find shoes in the shade of David’s Bridal plum.  She loves the look of the $230 High Society Heel at My Glass Slipper (pictured above, right), but needs something more affordable.  We also have Jessica, who wants to find an elegant, not-too-expensive style in bright purple.  So, I’ve been on the hunt for a plethora of pretty purple pumps that just might work for these ladies, or at least hopefully so.  Here’s what I found:

After looking at available options, I believe the best way to get the look of the High Society heel on a budget is to go with a shoe clip.  The nice thing about going this route is having more flexibility to choose the exact shoe style you want – for instance, Bridalshoes.com has lots of dyeable wedding shoes under $100 in various heel heights and 4 shades of purple to choose from.  A simple, but dressy heel, like the dyeable satin Touch Ups Flash-647 (pictured above, left) could work well and it’s affordably priced at $54 with a $14 dye fee.  You can then pick out a shoe clip and I tend to like the wide selection of options at Etsy.  The floral shoe clip pictured above is $24 in gold or silver and I think it would look really nice contrasted with purple.  When you combine the cost of the shoe and the shoe clip, it totals $92, which is less than half the cost of the High Society style.

Here are some ready-made options I found (Note: I tried to get as close as possible to the requested plum shade, but I am basing this solely on the picture, which may not always be exact):

Allure Bridals Starlight for $79.95 with free shipping at Shoebuy.  Coupon code SPRING15 takes 15% off (expiration unknown).

RSVP Cailyn for $99 with free shipping at Zappos.

Nina Elke for $99 with free shipping from Zappos.

Coloriffics Rave for $99.95 with free shipping at Endless.  Spend $100 or more on eligible styles, including this one, and get 20% off with coupon code FORMAL12 (exp 5/7/12).  The base color of these shoes appears lighter, but the stones are a darker purple.

Poetic Licence Spectacle in purple for $62 with free shipping from Must Have Shoes or $79 with free shipping from Planet Shoes.

Touch Ups by Benjamin Adams Bev for $61.99 with free shipping from Shoes.com.  Coupon code SECRET20 takes 20% off (exp unknown).

Bourne Susie in Aubergine for $136.85 with free shipping from Endless.

Poetic Licence Force of Nature, an option that’s a bit different than the rest, but still has plenty of purple, for $89.40 at Dillards or $109 at Must Have Shoes, both with free shipping.

Now for some bright purple options.  I included more variety as far as the actual shade goes with these shoes since bright purple can mean different things to different people.  Of course, it’s the bride’s call to determine what exact shade will work for her, so here are some possibilities to consider:

Charles by Charles David Glacee in purple for $125.34 with free shipping from Endless.

Dyeables Lacey in purple for $69.99 with free shipping at Shoes.com.  Coupon code SECRET20 takes 20% off (exp unknown).

Coloriffics Miley in purple for $69.95 with free shipping from Endless.  Spend $100 or more on eligible styles, including this one, and get 20% off with coupon code FORMAL12 (exp 5/7/12).

Ivanka Trump Alluvia for $82.11 with free shipping at Endless.

H by Halston Abigail for $59.99 at Bakers (for the platform lovers!).

Steve Madden Hadley-R for $119.95 at Steve Madden and coupon code SMSPRING15 takes 15% off $75 and gives free shipping for a limited time.

Lulu Townsend Blossom wedge for $54.95 at DSW.  Members get free shipping on $35 with coupon code SHIPR through 6/20/12.

Nine West Devika for $49.99 with free shipping at 6pm.

Pour La Victoire Evelia for $74.50 with free shipping at Endless.

J.Renee Rosina in multi for $79.95 with free shipping at Endless.  This option clearly isn’t solid purple, but if you look close at the glitter, there is plenty of purple mixed in, so it could be really pretty.

Congratulations to both brides!

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:

Earth Day Shoe Sales: Go green, save green

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

Happy Earth Day everyone!  Today is a day of environmental awareness and there’s always changes we can make to benefit the planet, even with our shoes.  Shoes generally aren’t considered highly wasteful products since we tend to wear them for long periods of time and then we might give them away for someone else to get additional use from them; however, it’s still a smart idea to opt for shoes made of recycled materials that would otherwise go to waste, organic shoes that are produced without chemical pesticides and shoes made from sustainable and/or biodegradable materials, even if it’s not every pair in our closet.  In doing so, we support the companies that produce products in ways that are better for our planet and we might find that more and more companies will do the same.  We can also save some green in the process and I’ve found some online shoe stores offering discounts today in celebration of Earth Day:

Simple Shoes takes 20% off regular or sale items with coupon code FOLLOWSIMPLE (exp. unknown).  Simple Shoes strives for 100% sustainability in the materials used to produce their shoes using their Green Toe “good, better, best” method.  See more details here.

Planet Shoes specializes in selling eco-friendly shoes and they are taking an extra 15% off select Earth Day Shop items when you apply coupon code earthday2010 through 4/22/10.  Plus, if you buy a pair of shoes and a tree to plant for $1, your donation will be matched by participating brands.

ShoeMall takes 15% off select eco-friendly shoes with coupon code EARTHDAY until 4/27/10.  Shipping is also free.

Shoes.com takes 15% off sitewide with coupon code EARTH on 4/22/10 only.  Plus, for every pair of shoes purchased today, a tree will be planted through their partnership with Plant-It 2020.  Note that the Naya Shoes I mentioned yesterday are not eligible for coupon discounts and other exclusions apply.

Piperlime takes 20% off flat sandals on 4/22/10 if you apply coupon code SWEET at checkout.  Shipping is also free.

Endless.com offers $25 off select earth friendly shoes $125 or more and free overnight shipping on new styles.

Hot Shoe Trends for Spring 2009: Fresh & Fabulous Flower Shoes

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009

Nothing says spring like floral shoes and, although flower-adorned pairs have always been around, it seems particularly on-trend this year.  We’re seeing a wide array of blooms showing up in footwear with styles that range from sweet and demure to bold and daring, but one thing is certain – all are decidedly feminine.  After all, we don’t normally see men running around with rose embellished loafers or daisys on their oxfords, right?  So, fully embrace your girly side this spring with these freshly blooming pairs, which I picked out just for you:  

Let’s start with this stand-out style, the Bettye Muler Lola wedge, which has a bright fuschia super-bloom over the toe.  If you live by the mantra of go big or go home, this is the pair for you.  Endless has it for $364.95 with free overnight shipping, which is quite a splurge but perfect for embracing this trend to the max.

 

This is the kind of heel you slip on to feel amazing and the lifelike red patent leather rose is the perfect adornment.  The Via Spiga Monique just might be your go-to sexy shoe for those upcoming hot summer nights and you can get it at Amazon for $197.20 with $20 off using coupon code AMZSHOES at checkout.  It’s also available in black/natural for the same price or green/fuschia for $198.95 .  Shipping is free.

 

You can definitely rock this trend in a totally glam way – even without the heel – in this Daniblack Mimosa satin flat.  Get this super-fresh style at the Daniblack website for $87.50, which is 30% off retail.  It comes in your choice of green/blue, red/purple, black or red.

 

Flaunt your flower power in this Seychelles Reservations For Two satin pump in teal or black.  You have to love the combination of peep toe and flower at the front and the overall style of the shoe, which is versatile enough for work or play.  Get it at Zappos for $94 with free shipping.  Update: The teal pair is sold out, but a taupe version is available for $84.60.

 

Poetic Licence shoes are often adorned in florals and this sandal is a great example.  The Poetic Licence Mint Julep can add that perfect air of femininity to your spring and summer looks, but with a go-anywhere casual style.  Get it at Planet Shoes in pink, yellow, silver or green leopard print for $79 with free shipping.  Save an additional 20% until 3/18/09 with coupon code LUCKY20 (making it $63.20) or, if expired, use coupon code SURVEY20 for 12% off (exp. unknown).  Update: The price has increased to $84.

Here’s another casual floral pair, but this one has a more natural, earthy vibe.  The Penny Loves Kenny Attar sandal is adorned in a variety of pretty blooms that look more like wild blossoms than perfectly sculpted flowers, which is great for a more laid-back look.  Add this style to your shoe collection in brown or metallic for $39.95 from DSW.  Get free shipping with coupon code FSDSW after logging in to your DSW account.

Other floral shoes of note:

 

Left to right: B.O.C. Savina for $49.99 at DSW (free shipping coupon listed above), XOXO Rosebud for $32.80 with free shipping after applying 20% off coupon code ENTSHOES09 at Shoes.com, Guess Arivica for $39.99 at Guess.com, Born Hibiscus for $119 with 10% off with coupon code THANKYOU at Shoeline, Merona Edie for $22.99 at Target

Chinese Laundry Gonzales Boot for $29.48 at Planet Shoes

Sunday, February 22nd, 2009

It’s never a bad thing when a boot is said to be tailored for a flattering fit, but you also can’t argue with the price.  The Chinese Laundry Gonzales Boot in chocolate brown is currently offered for $29.48 at Planet Shoes during their current 33% off clearance sale.  This is a definitely a great price for a suede slouch boot and I haven’t seen it for this price or less anywhere else.  Sale ends 3/2/09.

SOS: Extra 33% off clearance at Planet Shoes

Saturday, February 21st, 2009

Planet Shoes recently offered 33% off 1 clearance item, but now you can get 33% off any pair of clearance shoes you order, no coupon code required.  Prices start at under $10 and all items ship for free.  Choose from brands like Earth, Blowfish, Yellow Box, Rocket Dog and more.  Sizes are limited for many styles, so it’s best to choose your size at the top to see what’s available.  Sale ends 3/2/09.
