Spring 2011 Hot Shoe Trends: Denim shoes

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Lately, I’ve noticed that many shoe designers seem to be catching a case of the blues — but in the best possible way, of course, because what I’m referring to is a spring denim trend.  Blue jeans are always a closet staple, but this trend is all about the use of denim for other types of clothing and accessories, such as shoes.  And like your favorite pair of jeans, shoes in denim have the potential for some serious multitasking in any wardrobe due to the versatility of the fabric.  It also tends to exude a cool, casual vibe perfect for toning down a look and making it more laid-back, which works well when this is the desired effect.  I first observed this trend emerging when Mr. Louboutin released shoes in denim for the upcoming season, like the drool-worthy Christian Louboutin Pigalle 120 studded denim pumps pictured above for $975 at Net-a-Porter (almost sold out) and more styles, like the Christian Louboutin Greissimo in denim for $875 and the Christian Louboutin Deroba Denim Wedge for $595 at Neiman Marcus.  Plus, as Fashionologie reports, denim pieces were seen all over the runway for several noted designers and, in addition, we have the lovely Rachel Roy, who recently released an array of denim shoes as part of her Rachel Rachel Roy line.  If you want to get in on the denim shoe trend, here are some styles to check out: 

This is one of my current favorite shoes and it’s available in a limited-edition denim version exclusively at Akira: the Sam Edelman Lorissa for $183.90.  Update: This pair is now also available at Nordstrom for $225.

Update: Here’s another one from Sam Edelman and I had to add it because I am soooo loving it.  The Sam Edelman Novato in light blue for $90 at Lori’s Shoes or $99.95 at Nordstrom.

The Fever Monica in bleached denim for $200 at Fever Shoes.

The Rachel Roy Idana for $99.99 at Macy’s.  Apply code PRESIDENT to get 10% off, making them $89.99, through 2/21/11.  I’m also hoping the Rachel Roy Kimi in light blue with red glitter platform might make a comeback after being sold out – love!!

The Jeffrey Campbell Hill Boot in blue denim for $220 at Karmaloop.  Coupon code JUST4U takes 20% off for a limited time, making them $176.

The Miss Me Woody-5 for $54.10 at Endless.

The Sergio Zelcer Witt for $136.32 in limited sizes at Endless.  See all Sergio Zelcer for more denim styles.

The Dr. Scholl’s Bombshell denim flat for $29 at Endless.

The Matisse Slade for $34.98 at 6pm or $32.49 at Sears.

The Guess Bilsor in limited sizes for $76.97 at 6pm.

Message from Princess: Shoe sales galore this weekend

Friday, April 9th, 2010

I’ve been seeing plenty of really good shoe sales going on, so I had to round them up for those of you who may be shoe shopping this weekend.  If you’re craving a hot new pair of shoes, but need them to be light on the wallet too, check these stores out:











I have to start with Sears because they have some unbelievably low prices on their shoes right now.  Sears may not be first place we think of when buying shoes, but they do offer some well-known brands and – wow – these prices are insane.  They are taking an extra 50% off women’s clearance boots and when you look at the shoes, you’d think many of them are already marked down, but you actually get the extra discount at checkout.  Boots aren’t typically on the brain this time of year, but when they start at $2.50 after discount you can’t go wrong.  For example, the MIA Amore McBeavy moto boot (pictured above, at left) or the Laundry List Trishelle (pictured above, at right) are just $5 each.  Plus, there are plenty of other boots to choose from, many of which are under $25 before discount and $12.50 or less after.  Besides boots, Sears is also taking 30% off clearance shoes at checkout, including athletic shoes from brands like New Balance, Skechers and Adidas.  The sale ends 4/17/10.


American Eagle is once again taking an extra 30% off clearance items, including clearance shoes.  They don’t have free shipping this time around, at least not right now, but you can still get cute flats and sandals for very low prices.  I like the AE Leopard Sandal (pictured above left), which is a new arrival to the clearance section and is priced at $24.99 before discount and $17.47 after (originally $29.50).  We also had a commenter in my previous American Eagle sale post that said she was liking the AE Soft Ballet Flat in light blue (pictured above right).  It’s a great color and available for only $13.97 after discount (originally $29.50), although sizes are getting a bit limited.  The sale ends 4/20/10.

Nine West is having their Friends and Family Sale, which always means a sweet discount.  Get 30% off regularly-priced items by applying coupon code NWFRND4 at checkout and shipping is discounted to $5.  I’m loving the sandal featured on their homepage, the super-sexy Nine West Consuela for $89.  It’s available in 4 colors and you can get it for $62.30 after discount.  The sale ends 4/12/10.

Macy’s is having a Great Shoe Sale, which is a buy more, save more sale that takes 15% off 1 pair of shoes, 20% off 2 and 30% off 3.  Many sale items are also included, which is extra-nice since there isn’t a purchase minimum to get these discounts.  Gear up your spring and summer wardrobe with the shoes pictured above, (from left) the Chinese Laundry Block Party for $49, the Marc Fisher Sal for $89 and the Enzo Angiolini Fiama for $89.  You can get 15% off any one of these or 20% off any two, but the real savings come in when you buy all 3 for $158.90 rather than $227, which is $68 off (and kind of like getting a free pair).  Shipping is free on $75 or more with coupon code FIRSTSTEP until 4/17/10.  Sale expiration is unknown.

6pm has some weekend brand-specific super sales going on.  Get up to 65% off Steve Madden, up to 65% off HUGO Hugo Boss shoes, up to 65% off Cole Haan boots, up to 75% off Enzo Angiolini and more.  These sales end 4/11/10.

Shoe Woo, a new site that sells Jones Apparel brand shoes such as Nine West, Anne Klein, Enzo Angiolini and licensed brand Rachel Roy, takes 30% off any regularly-priced order at checkout during their first Friends and Family sale.  One of my faves, the Boutique 9 Val, is reduced from $199 to $139.30 with $5 shipping.  It’s expected to ship 5/11, but it also shows as being on backorder, so it’s possible there’s some additional delay.  The sale ends 4/12/10.

That’s all for now, but I’ll add more sales over the weekend if I see them.  Have a great one!

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.
