It’s time for another addition of Saturday shoe sales – bringing you some of my favorite picks that are currently on sale. For this round I stayed away from clearance and stuck to regular sales. The difference between the two many times is the ability to return items. This of course differs by store, but many will not return items marked as final clearance. If you’re looking to take advantage of designer deals, I recommend you try on shoes from your favorite designers in a store when they first come out so you know size and fit and then watch the sales later in the year. Shopping clearance can save you up to 70% off if you’re savvy about it.
It’s been bitterly cold in Milwaukee and next week looks to be worse with wind chills below 50 degrees. If there was ever a time to bring out fur, it’s now. The Charles Jourdan Ecliptic Fur bootie pictured above is on sale for only $129 right now and while not quite practical outside in these temperatures, it will look great inside when warming by the fire. Neiman Marcus Last Call has 30-60% off everything until January 7th.
As much as I love picking up an end-of-season deal, I always feel like I’m getting even more of a bargain if I can pick up something that I’ll be able to wear for the upcoming season. I’d much rather think about my spring wardrobe right now than focus on the cold temperatures. These Rebecca Minkoff Debra Cutout Leather booties are perfect for only $198 as the neutral color will easily work for spring, summer, and even next fall. They’ll even work with a cute pair of tights right now. The bootie is beautiful paired with a dress for work or a great pair of jeans on your down-time. I found these on NeimanMarcus.com and like their more frugal cousin Neiman Marcus Last Call, have up to 60% off most of their sale items right now.
If you’re lucky enough to be escaping the cold for a tropical resort (or just live in a nicer climate) these Chloe wrap around leather sandals might be for you. At $345 they may seem like more of an investment for what seems to be a basic sandal, but the colored leather straps and bow detail will stand out with all your summer outfits and be a go-to for years to come. They’re a classic, beautiful sandal that can easily be dressed up or down. Farfetch.com has up to 40% off on select styles so you may want to check out what else needs to be in your closet.
Beautiful Bargains (under $100)
If you like something a little more edgy for a resort look, these Jeffrey Campbell Congo sandal for $75.00 might be the right fit. The rose golden overlays will gleam in the sun and the style takes gladiator sandals to a more regal standing.
These Schutz ankle-strap beaded cutout booties in dusty rose are a great find for only $83.60. Another find from Neiman Marcus Last Call, the color is perfect to wear with Winter pastels, but can easily transition to pairing with spring florals. The ankle strap is sexy, but the overall look is still appropriate for the office.
If you’re out doing some online shopping on your own, I’d suggest checking out the ShopStyle’s offers page. It’s a great reference and a source of some new sites you might not have shopped at before.
