4th of July shoes in stars & stripes & red, white & blue

Friday, June 29th, 2012

It’s almost the Fourth of July for those that celebrate here in the U.S. and I think one good way to go all out and put your patriotism on display is wearing shoes with an American flag motif.  That’s why I’ve searched around for styles with good ‘ol stars & stripes and some in red, white, and blue that may not be patterned directly after the flag, but still convey the all American theme.  One option with plenty of patriotic edge is the Iron Fist Allstar (pictured above), which is available at Heels.com for $89.99 with free 2nd day shipping, meaning that there’s still just enough time if to get them by July 3rd as I am writing this now (check the shipping info at the top to get order deadlines).  Let’s check out some more Independence Day themed options:

An ongoing fave, the Irregular Choice Chica Chola with flag detail on sale for $108.95 (regularly $188) at Karmaloop.  Coupon code ALLNEW takes 15% off and gives free shipping on orders over $100 for a limited time.

Karmaloop also has the Jeffrey Campbell Perfect Shoes in Stars and Stripes for $148 (promo codes do not apply).  A couple of more JC styles with flag detail are the Jeffrey Campbell Damsel for $182 and the Jeffrey Campbell Lita for $160.

If you love the Lita, but can’t quite shell out $160, this Lita-a-like might do the trick.  The American Flag Lace-Up Bootie is on sale for $37.95 (regularly $48) at GoJane.  They also have the $35 American Flag T-Strap Platform, which looks much like the Jeffrey Campbell Foxy.

I didn’t know that RuPaul had a shoe line with Iron Fist until I saw the RuPaul’s Drag Race Patriotic Pump, which is $74.99 with free 2nd day shipping at Heels.com.

6pm has the Naughty Monkey Marionette sandal in white, tan, or navy for $48.99 with free standard shipping.

The Naughty Monkey Shine Star is sprinkled with stars all over and available in red, blue, or black for $67.99 with free standard shipping at 6pm.  A similar style is the Star Print Platform Heel in red, blue, or black for $22.40 at GoJane.

I love high heels, but many 4th of July activities require going way more comfy and casual.  That’s why I definitely like these Vintage American Flag Flip Flops for $18.50 at Cafepress.

I was also looking around Etsy for 4th of July shoe clips and came across these Star And Stripes Patriotic Shoe Clips for $40 – are these not fab?

I also love this fun idea: A pair of flip flops with large floral shoe clips, one in red and one in blue. These Flop Toppers are $17 at Etsy.  The 4th of July Perky Bow Shoe Shoe Clip is another cute option I came across for $17 at Etsy.

Of course, if you plan to order anything online for the 4th, be sure to check with the retailer to determine if your order can arrive on time.

I hope everyone has a great holiday!

Easter shoes & fun this weekend

Monday, April 9th, 2012

I had a really nice time with my family for Easter this weekend.  On Saturday, my mom, sister, and I went shopping with the goal of outfitting our sweet little girls (my two daughters and niece) in pretty little Easter dresses and shoes, which is always a fun time.  We decided to go to Shoe Carnival to check out the kids shoes since we knew they were having a BOGO sale.  I didn’t really intend to buy myself anything since I was focused on dressing up my girls; however, temptation won out when I spotted the Soda Terani wedges you see me wearing above.  I first saw these online at Tillys last week and really liked them, so when I saw them in person and still felt the same after trying them on, I couldn’t leave them there.

The pink and yellow shades looked very Easter to me, like colors found on dyed eggs or candy, and I added an extra element of colorblocking via sky blue toes.  These shoes are very high, but despite the towering 5.5″ heel, they are surprisingly comfortable.  I found that going half a size up felt better to me when I tried them on in the store, so that’s what I opted to do, although it wasn’t totally necessary.  It just gave me a little extra wiggle room around the front strap area since I have a wider foot.  At $30, these were quite a bargain and they definitely look like they could be higher in price to me (they are even lower online at $24.98).  Plus, since there was a BOGO sale, I scooped up another cute pair for just $12 more (you can see those at the end of the post).  Color me happy. Update: These are also now available at LuLus for $29.

Here are some more pics from our family Easter get-together that I wanted to share:

My daughter had to have these sparkly flats when she saw them.  Yes, she appears to already be taking after me when it comes to shoes!  These are from a brand called Innocence, but I couldn’t locate them online.

This is the beautiful view behind my parent’s house and we enjoyed it while grilling out and egg hunting in the backyard.

My sister got these cute white strappy wedges for her Easter shoes, the Solanz Beezus.  These were $40 in the store, but are on sale for $29.98 online at Shoe Carnival.

My parents always know how to make things special when they have us over for holidays.  The food was amazing and I love my mom’s beautiful table arrangement and deviled egg chicks!

My sweet little niece wore Born flower shoes, similar to the Born Little Flower or Born Dahlia.

This is the other pair I bought, the Y-Not Sure-S in teal.  These wedges were on sale for $24.98 in the store and the price is the same online.  I got them for around $12.50 because of the BOGO offer.

Trying out a bit of pattern mixing with floral and striped denim.

I hope everyone had a happy Easter weekend as well!

Name brand shoes under $25 at Piperlime

Friday, August 19th, 2011

End-of-season sales are a mecca for a bargain-hunters like our friend Cheap Chick, who loves to find cute shoes on the cheap.  First, I have to point out that the use of the word “cheap” on this blog only refers to the price of the shoes (simply defined as under $25) because anything beyond that — looks, quality, etc — is really a matter of personal preference.  However, it does help to find shoes that are not only low in price, but also come from recognizable brand names that are normally much more expensive.  That’s what Cheap Chick found in the Piperlime Final Sale and it’s also when things get really fun, like when you come across something like the Sam Edelman Magdalena (pictured above) with a retail price of $150 marked down to just $19.97 with free shipping in gray or whiskey/black.  That’s an unusually low price for this brand and I’m not seeing this particular style for less than around $80 anywhere else right now (Update 8/20: The price of the whiskey/black version was just increased to $39.95).  Want more?  Here are some additional name brand sandals and heels under $25 at Piperlime:

Seychelles Pickford for $24.97 with free shipping (retail $99).

Steve Madden Glistenn in black and 3 more color options for $24.97 with free shipping (retail $90).

Naughty Monkey Shinner in grey for $24.99 with free shipping (retail $89).  Sizes are getting a bit limited.

Report Ledger for $24.97 with free shipping (retail $90).

DV by Dolce Vita Siren for $24.97 with free shipping (retail $90).

Matiko Blake for $19.97 in black or white (retail $195).

Mia Biscotti in natural or black for $19.97 (retail $59).  The Naughty Monkey Divine in grey is a similar style for the same price (retail $99).

This is merely a sampling — there are tons of options at various price points in Piperlime’s Final Sale.  Note that returns are not allowed for these styles and prices are subject to change.

Update: Many more shoes under $25 can be found in the Steve Madden clearance sale, where prices are currently reduced by an extra 50% through 9/2/11 (the price listed has the discount applied).  There are quite a few priced under $20!

Cheap-A-Thon: Cute heels under $25

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Cheap Chick is in da house today, which is great news for shoe lovers on a tight budget….or anyone who gets a thrill out of a seriously good bargain.  If you don’t know, this little birdie loves to hunt for shoes that are on major discount and she makes it her mission to scour the web looking for hidden gems in the sale and clearance sections.  To up the ante, she only finds shoes that are marked down to super-low prices — i.e. $25 or less — but are still way high on style.  Let’s take a look at what Cheap Chick found today:

Aldo Munday in taupe or black for $24.99 (retail $100) at Aldo.com.  This price is already in cheap territory, but coupon code 401845805 takes another 10% off through 7/31/11.

Miss Me Skyler 11 in brown for $25.75 (retail $79.95) with free 2-day shipping at Endless.  You can also get it in white for the same price, but it’s almost sold out.

Deena & Ozzy Asymmetrical Wedge for $19.99 (retail $59) at Urban Outfitters.

Michael Antonio Tau in tan or black for $20 (retail $60) with free 2-day shipping at Endless.

Sole Boutique Hugo XIII for $24.95 (retail $38) at Karmaloop.  Also available in blue, fuschia, or white for the same price or less.

Fun Shoes for Friday: Not Rated Razzle Dazzle sequin flats

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

We all love the look of heels, but flats are where it’s at when you need increased comfort and wearability for certain weekend activities.  Of course, losing the heels doesn’t mean you can’t get a bit fancy.  The Not Rated Razzle Dazzle flat (above) caught my eye for being completely covered in sequins and studs, which makes it a nice choice to add some shimmer and shine to a more casual look.  Even better, the sale price is totally on point: A mere $21.97 (regularly $49.95) at Endless will add these to your shoe collection in your choice of silver, gold or black with 2-day shipping also being free.  That’s what I call some cute cheap flats, no buyer’s remorse included.

Happy Friday!

Shoe Woo Final Clearance Sale: Extra 50-80% off shoes & boots at checkout

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

It’s January and ’tis the season for serious shoe bargains while stores clear inventory to make way for spring, so we’re sure to see plenty of steep discounts going on throughout the month (always a good thing for our shoe shopping tendencies).  But, when it comes to sales, there are those that leave you a bit underwhelmed with the prices and then there are those with red-hot, OMG type discounts.  That’s what’s I’m seeing right now over at Shoe Woo, a site that sells Jones Apparel Group shoe brands like Nine West, Rachel Rachel Roy, Enzo Angiolini, Bandolino, Anne Klein and more.  The bad news – for those who shop there – is that the website is closing (store locations will remain open).  The good news?  As a result, they are having a “Crazy Clearance” sale with some drastically reduced prices on their selection of shoes and boots, which get an extra 50-80% off at checkout.  For instance, the Enzo Angiolini Nate boot (pictured above), which has a cuff you can wear up or down, is normally $250 and gets an additional 80% off in-cart for a price of just $50 in black or brown.  Here are some additional styles you might want to check out:

The Nine West Paoletta in black is marked down from $89 to $34.99 and gets another 50% off at checkout, making it $17.49.  A leopard version is also available (almost sold out) for $49.99 and $24.99 in-cart.

The Bandolino Indulge in grey suede, black suede or black leather is $109 and reduced to $21.80 after an 80% off in-cart discount.

The Rachel Roy Wava boot in plaid or black is marked down from $159 to $111.30 and gets another 60% off at checkout, making it $44.52.

The Enzo Angiolini Maiden in black is $99 and gets 70% off in-cart, making it $29.70.

The Joan & David Beesly in black or grey/black is $325 and gets 70% off at checkout, which reduces the price to $97.50.

The Enzo Angiolini Kaiser in taupe or black is $120 and 80% off is taken at checkout, dropping the price to $24.

There are plenty of more shoes and boots to choose from, so be sure to check it out!

Note that each shoe is marked with its eligible discount and all sales are final.  Shipping adds a flat $5 to your order.

Update: I noticed that some of the prices listed here have changed since this was originally posted, so be sure to double-check the current pricing if you plan to make a purchase.

SOS: Clear heels, feather heels & more shoes on BOGO at Nine West

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

I love a shoe sale where you can stack discount upon discount, for obvious reasons, and that’s just what we’re seeing over at Nine West.  They’ve had an ongoing sale that takes 30% or 50% off select specially-marked shoes and boots, but they’ve upped the ante even more today by offering 50% off your second pair.  That’s a lot of savings, particularly on shoes that are already on sale and eligible for the extra 30% or 50% off at checkout and eligible for the BOGO savings when you buy two, plus shipping is free.  It may all sound a bit complicated but, no worries, all you have to do is add you favorite styles to your cart and it’s all calculated automatically for you at checkout.  Plus, I’ve worked up a couple scenerios to demonstrate the potential savings on some shoes that caught my eye.  Let’s check it out:

For a super-low priced option that’s also super-cute, try the Nine West Masqurede, which is on sale for $39.99 (retail $69) and eligible for another 30% off at checkout.  That makes it $27.99 and it also comes in solid black and leopard patent.

Add the Nine West Bonfire to your order, which is on sale for $49.99 (retail $89) and also eligible for 30% off – making it $34.99 – and the Masquerade drops to just $13.99.  That means you’ll get two classically versatile peep toe pumps in your closet for $48.98 shipped.  That’s not bad at all, but you might want to try something even more trendy.  Here’s another scenerio:

The Nine West Zizzi has the same classic peep toe pump silhouette as the shoes above, but it grabbed my attention because of its clear upper with sparkle detail.  Clear shoes have been around forever – think jellies and those huge clear platform heels that are mostly associated with dancers (of the exotic variety, that is) – but we’ve also seen a lot of high-end designers like Fendi, Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo and Prada experiment with materials like PVC and lucite.  It can definitely be hit or miss, but I think in many cases the desired effect is to make the foot look as bare as possible, like it’s just covered in sparkles.  We haven’t seen many moderately-priced options to get this effect (for example, the Jimmy Choo Niagra is a whopping $2,495), but the Nine West Zizzi looks like clear done right to me, plus it’s affordable at $79.

I also had to take note of the Nine West Blondie heels because shoes with feather detail aren’t exactly the easiest thing to come across.  There was definitely a lot of interest in those red feather Louboutin heels seen on Kim from Bravo’s The Real Housewives, but it’s not something everyone can spend big bucks on to try out.  These shoes are on sale for $59.99 (retail $89) and also come in black or green.  You get another 30% off at checkout, which drops them to $41.99.  Add the Zizzi clear heels to your cart and you can snag them for just $20.99.  The price for both is $99.99 shipped.

There are plenty more cute shoes to choose from at great prices, but you’ll have to shake a tail feather.  The BOGO sale ends today, 12/15/10.
