Ivory wedding sandals with sparkly rhinestones

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

I received another inquiry from a bride-to-be that needs some assistance finding her perfect wedding shoes and, in today’s Find My Shoes feature, I hope to help her out.  For this particular request, the bride will be wearing an ivory version of the gorgeous Alfred Angelo dress you see pictured above and wants to find ivory wedding shoes to complement it for her upcoming garden wedding.  She is looking for something with plenty of sparkle and something that is designed with some kind of strap over the foot because pumps and slingbacks tend to slide off her feet.  She also wants a heel of up to 3.5″ and wants to stay within a budget of around $100, give or take a bit depending on the shoe.  So, with that in mind, I set out to find some options that meet her desired criteria, or at least very close.  Let’s take a look:

Brianna Leigh Alyssa in ivory silk satin for $139.95 with free shipping at Shoebuy.  Coupon code SPRING15 takes 15% off, which makes them $118.96 (exp 4/30/12).

A.Marinelli Excess in ivory for $72.80 with free shipping at Endless.

Kenneth Cole Reaction Know Blinkie in cream for $89.95 at Shoemall.  Coupon code SHOESRFUN takes 20% off, making them $71.96 (exp. 4/18/12).  They are also available at Dillards for $89.99.  Note: Dillards has it listed as a 4″ heel, while Shoemall has it at 3.5″.

Nina Vianey in ivory for $49.99 with free shipping at 6pm. Also available at Shoebuy for $71.95 with free shipping and 15% off via the coupon listed above.

Coloriffics Camryn in ivory for $106.45 at Shoebuy.  Use the coupon code listed above for 15% off.

Pour La Victoire Estee in ivory with blue sole adorned with “I do” crystals for $68 with free shipping at Amazon.

Antonio Melani Tabitha in ivory for $89.99 at Dillards.

Nina Chara in ivory for $99 with free shipping at Endless.

Antonio Melani Reiss for $110 at Dillards (note: heel is 4″).

Chinese Laundry Abbie in ivory for $69 at Macys.

Annie Adrien in ivory for $59.95 with free shipping at Endless.

Update: Another one I came across, the Paco Mena Gloria in ivory for $124 with free shipping at Endless.  Get 20% off $100 with coupon code MOTHER20 through 5/13/12.

Update 2: The heel is higher than requested at 4.25″, but it’s hard to deny the gorgeous Ivanka Trump Abilene in ivory.  It’s available at Bloomingdales for $150.

Congrats to the bride on her upcoming special day!

Kate Middleton wedding shoes picture + lace heels for brides

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

When Kate Middleton married Prince William earlier this year, it was a beautiful fairy-tale wedding and I loved her dress, but I have to admit I was disappointed when we couldn’t get a good look at her shoes.  I’m not sure when or how I thought Kate would be able to show us her shoes, given that they were well-concealed under her full-length gown, but I did hope for a better glimpse.  Fast-forward a few months later and my little shoe wish has come true now that Kate’s Alexander McQueen dress, heels, and more items from the royal wedding are on display at a Buckingham Palace exhibition.  The custom lace shoes Kate wore are pictured above and, much like her gown, they are classic and elegant.  They also appear deceptively simple, but all of those tiny little stitches were done by hand and there’s no telling how long they took to make.  In light of Kate’s shoes making an official appearance, I decided to find some lace wedding shoes for those who want a similar look when marrying their own Prince Charming — or for anyone who wants to incorporate the feminine look of lace into their wardrobe.  Let’s take a look:

The Stuart Weitzman Laceswoon has a similar silhouette in ivory lace.  Find these at Zappos on sale for $255.50 with free shipping (retail $365).

BridalShoes.com has the Touch Ups Bobbie in ivory, which is also similar, but costs less at $74.  The Touch Ups Catalina is a peep toe style in lace and it’s priced at $72.  Note that both will be available in August.

My personal lace fave is the Chinese Laundry Hotline, which has bolder styling with the higher platform and bow detail.  You can find these at Endless in ivory or black for $69 with free overnight shipping.  If you spend $80 or more on your order, you’ll get $25 off automatically at checkout for a limited time.  Shoemall has it for $69.95 and if you buy one item, you’ll get 30% off your second with coupon code BOGO through 7/30/11.  Chinese Laundry also has it for $89.95.

Spring 2011 Shoe Trends: Going nude with neutral shoes

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

I’ve been talking about shoes in bold colors a lot lately, but today I’m sticking with a much more neutral subject – literally.  I’m talking about neutral shoes, styles in shades like taupe, beige and nude, because this is a huge trend we’re seeing for spring.  We’ve actually seen this same trend every year for at least the past couple of years, but it makes perfect sense: For what these shoes lack in color, they totally make up for it in extreme versatility, giving great bang for your fashion buck.  Plus, they’re ideal for pairing with those light and airy spring frocks we love to wear this time of year because they won’t weigh down the look.  Sure, you won’t have the drama that bold color can provide, but going nude with your shoes gives plenty of leeway for playing things up with unique design details.  One example of this is the Calvin Klein Alex (above), a modern, sleek and sexy style with crisscross detail on the upper for added interest.  You can get them for $158 with free overnight shipping at Endless.  Here are some more neutral shoes that have caught my eye:

Sam Edelman Kellan wedge in nude for $224.95 at Nordstrom.  Get free shipping with coupon code SHOES through 4/14/11.

Boutique 9 Illy in light natural for $139.99 with free 2-day shipping from Heels.com.

Report Signature Calyer in almond for $264.95 with free overnight shipping at Endless.  Or, get a similar look for less with the BCBGirls Estrella pump in nude for $119.99 with free 2-day shipping at Heels.com.

Sergio Zelcer Maggie t-strap wedge sandal in tan for $129 with free overnight shipping at Endless.

Aldo Krugh for $90 at Aldo.com. Coupon code 310687728 takes 10% off (exp 4/1/11).

Chinese Laundry Talk To Me in natural for $109.95 with free shipping at Shoemall.  Coupon code SHOEMALL20 takes 20% off (expiration unknown).

Dolce Vita Scarlett in blush for $99 at Bloomingdales.  Get 20% off with coupon code MARCHFF (exp 4/3/11).

Messeca Cecilia asymmetrical wedge for $169 with free shipping at Piperlime.

Fergie Sanibel in nude for $109.95 at Shoemall.  Coupon code SHOEMALL20 takes 20% off (expiration unknown).

Note that prices and promotions are subject to change at any time.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Celebrate with green shoes & shoe sales

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

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:

Famous Footwear: 20% off with coupon code LUCKY

Chinese Laundry: 20% off with coupon code 1DAYSALE317

PlanetShoes: 20% off with coupon code 20lucky

Gretchen wears Report Signature shoes on Watch What Happens Live

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

I’ve had some questions on Facebook about the sparkly silver ankle cuff heels that Gretchen Rossi of The Real Housewives of Orange County wore while making an appearance with boyfriend Slade on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Sunday night (3/13/11).  Gretchen wore these shoes with a form-fitting purple dress and they definitely add a nice dose of shine to her look, almost like they could be glitter.  But, they are actually these “ivory” bead-covered shoes:

Gretchen wore the Report Signature Vanderbuilt and, despite the brand name of the shoes being mentioned on the show, they were tough to track down because, unfortunately, they are now sold out everywhere.  You can see them listed at Endless or Bluefly, but there are also some sellers offering this pair on eBay as well.  Otherwise, here are some styles with similar details that are worth checking out as alternatives:

Steve Madden Glitsi for $109.95 at Steve Madden.  Coupon code rmn15f takes 15% off and gives free shipping, making them $93.46 (expiration unknown).  If they have your size, get them for $69.99 with free shipping instead at PiperlimeUpdate: Now priced at $76.95.

Dolce Vita Misty for $104.47 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.

Dolce Vita Vanni for $146.90 with free 2-day shipping at Endless.  Update: Out of stock at Endless, but Last Call by Neiman Marcus has them for $159.

Miss Me Diva-17 in silver for $26.09 with free shipping at Amazon.  Update: Now $16.73 in silver, but only one size left.

Naughty Monkey Shinner for $84.95 at Shoemall.  Get 20% off $20 with coupon code LUCKY20 until 3/17/11.  You can also get this style at ZapposUpdate: Now $67.99 at Shoemall, but also available at DSW for $49.95.

Chinese Laundry Miranda for $67.98 – $119.99 depending on size and color selection at Amazon.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Shoes: Working it out in Louboutins

Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

The cast members of The Real Housewives franchise on Bravo are each quite different in their own way, but if there is one common denominator among the women, it’s that they all love shoes.  And, more often than not, they like to get their footwear fix from Christian Louboutin (as discussed in several of my previous posts).  So, it’s no surprise that we saw plenty of red soles flashing on the The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion for Season 3.  After all, when you have some explainin’ to do for all of your antics during the season, you must have your best power pumps on.  What I didn’t know, however, is that host Andy Cohen also has a thing for shoes.  On Watch What Happens Live, he let us in on a little tradition where he selects his favorite pair of shoes from those worn by the Housewives during the reunion taping.  And, according to this video footage, Andy is all about sparkly and rock ‘n’ roll styles, making him a man after my own heart for sure.  You can see all of the shoes up close in the video, but here’s a rundown of what the ladies wore:

Kandi Burruss wore the Christian Louboutin Miss Fast booties with spike detail.  These were available at Saks for $1,095 at Saks, but are now sold out.

Phaedra Parks wore the Christian Louboutin Ambertina, available for $895 at Barney’s, but only a couple of sizes are left.

NeNe Leakes wore the Christian Louboutin Pigalili in gold.  The silver version is available in limited sizes for $3,545 at Christian Louboutin.

Kim Zolciak wore a nude version of the Christian Louboutin Pigalle spiked pump, like this one in denim.  I don’t see the nude pair for sale online.

Sheree Whitfield wore these $895 Christian Louboutin Maggie heels, which are also sold out.

Cynthia Bailey was the only one not in Louboutins.  She wore a YSL platform pump that appears to be this metallic silver version, available for $895 at YSL.

Andy’s favorite pair was Phaedra’s Ambertina sandal.  Of course, we can’t all splurge like the Housewives do, so I tracked down some shoes that have similar elements, but at a much lower price.  Here’s what I found:

BCBGeneration Flossy boots on sale for $51.99 at Shoemall (originally $129.95).  Act by today and use coupon code SAVE25 for 25% off $25 or more and you’ll score them for just $38.99 (expires 2/23/11).

Fever Raven for $250 at Fever Shoes.

Wild Pair Celeste for $80 at Amazon or for the same price at Bakers.

Betsey Johnson Ice in gold glitter for $85 at Zappos.

Sam Edelman Lorissa spikes heel in nude for $200 at Karmaloop.  Apply coupon code OHSNAP to get 15% off $75, making them $170 (expires 2/28/11).

Paris Hilton Patty for $59.95 at DSW.  Members get free shipping with coupon code SHIPR (expires 3/21/11)

Steve Madden Fantasha for $99.95 at Steve Madden.  Coupon code rmn15f takes 15% off and gives free shipping, making them $84.96 (expiration unknown).
