I’m so done with winter. This year has been worse than most with consistent below zero temperatures and constant snow. While I can’t have the warmer temperatures I crave yet, I’m definitely finding myself drawn to spring fashion. There are some amazing deals right now on fall and winter boots, but I just can’t bear to look at them right now.
So for today’s Saturday Shoe Sales post, I’m concentrating on shoes that will move forward into spring and summer. Modern, high contrast black and white style isn’t going anywhere, so that’s where I focused my search for great deals. Nordstrom happens to have a great shoe clearance right now (as well as free shipping and free returns) so you can find most of my picks on their site. Another notable source for this week is Zappos Couture which also has free shipping and a very generous 365 day free return policy.
My favorite find has got to be these Proenza Schouler pumps. They have an other wordly feel with black leather molten lava cutouts and a white curved heel. They would make the ultimate spring statement shoe and a quick way to spice up a simple little black dress. While I’d still put them in the investment category, they’re currently 50% off at Zappos Couture.
Another sci-fi inspired favorite of mine are these Eileen Fisher Tier sandals. The overall look is more of short 60’s boot with cutouts than a sandal and the black and silver coloring is reminiscent of something I’d expect Jane Fonda to be wearing in Barbarella. I’d wear them with a short mod inspired dress or a pair of cropped jeans and a sleek color-blocked top. They’re currently only $149.98 (40% off of the original $250) at Nordstrom right now.
I was really attracted to these tough, but fun KG Kurt Geiger Aster Sandals. The multiple buckles have a “don’t mess with me” attitude, and the lucite block heels say “I still like to have fun”. The block heel means they should be stable and easy to walk in. To get some wear out of them now, I’d pair them with brightly colored tights and a black and white sweater dress. A good deal at $133.95 (33% off the original price of $199.95) at Nordstrom.
I love a great heel, but I know that if I have a lot of walking to do, it’s time to switch to a flat. Flat shoes do not have to equate to dumpy and these Zigi Girl Illis flats will help you stay looking sharp. Ankle straps and hardware are on trend for spring and this flat has both. They’d look especially cute with a pair of white and black striped skinny jeans and a long jacket. At $52.89, they’re also a budget friendly buy at Nordstrom.
