Last Day to Save on Shoes from Banana Republic

Just for online shoe shoppers, Banana Republic is offering a special code which will help you save on your new shoes. Just enter SAVEMORE when you go to check out, and you can save $15 on your order of $125, $20 off $200, or $25 off $250! That quota is all too tempting to fulfill, and I'd start with these hot 'Robin' elastic strap pumps! At $140, you're already saving $15---that's at least as much as you'd save if you wait for the next big sale! And who wants to wait for these gorgeous silver metallic heels? Not me... (Then again, I really wouldn't use me as a shoe shopping role model in terms of patience or moderation!)

Piperlime Lime Tag Sale - Now 50% Off!

Last week I told you about the Piperlime Lime Tag Sale. Well, this week reductions have been added--and now you can save up to 50% off sale shoes!
I spent a good deal of time last week trying to order some black boots. Unfortunately, these shoe sales are so good they often sell out in my size very quickly (I wear a 9, if you're interested). But now I'm about to take another look, because I had ruled out several styles for being above my budget. One pair that's getting rave reviews on the Internet, but which was sold out in my size, are these Clarks December boots with comfortable aerosole insoles. I'm going to visit Clarks at the mall this weekend to see if I can try them on; I'll definitely let you know if they live up to their reputation!

Well if you are, then I am highly jealous, because it means you can snag these deliciously sinful Leather Plaited Heavy Platform shoes from ASOS, now on sale for only 24 pounds (about fifty bucks).

The Banana Republic Winter Sale is still going strong! (Not to be confused with the Holiday Sale, of course.) That means your favorite shoes are up to 70% off the retail value. The best part about this Banana Republic shoe sale are these gorgeous 'Ophelie' satin pumps. These are the quintessential shoes for every woman's wardrobe! Whether you wear them to the office or to a party or under dressy jeans, with their shiny satin accent, these will make every outfit more glam. They have a medium heel and slightly pointed toe, the perfect display of restraint and moderation. I absolutely adore and highly recommend these heels, and they're now only $59.99 (down from an original $130.00). Get them while they last!

Monday's Weekly Deals from 6PM

This week at, you can save up to 65% on RSVP slippers, and all Steve Madden or Puma footwear. Of the three brands, my favorite has to be Steve Madden. At 47% off, I'm digging these relaxed yet visually interesting 'Nicky' loafers in slate grey. They've got fringing, contrast stitching and lots of character, without going overboard. It's like the shoe representation of casual chic, or looking cute without looking like you tried (the beauty ideal). They're now only $25.88 for a limited time. You can also find boots, flats, high heels, platforms, sandals, espadrilles and more by Steve Madden or SM New York on sale.

Old Navy Shoe Sale - Online Only!

While supplies last, shop for up to 75% off shoes. I had a hard time choosing between these Patent Ballet Flats in Blue, Purple or Gold as Style Bard Faves--though for $12.99 each, you could really get more than one pair. Any of these would brighten up an outfit, and they're just as easy to throw on as boring old flip-flops or Uggs, and they work year-round. I had a pair of gold flats once that I literally wore through the winter until they were scuffed as hell. You can't get these discounts in stores, so take advantage of this offer and save big by shopping online.

Quelle Horreur!

Since it was a short week, we're skipping *Shoes in Review* in favor of your favorite and mine...a Quelle Horreur!

(In fact, I am planning to switch things up around here a little more often in 2009...not because I'm getting bored with this site, but because I've got so many other great ideas! I never meant for it to be all about shoe sales, all the time, but I got into a habit, into a schedule, and now I want to try out some new things. Just so you know what to expect!)

Here we are, the first Quelle Horreur! of 2009:

Is Mother Nature sick? Because I could swear she threw up all over these shoes. The overall shape isn't bad, but we've got florals, we've got mesh, we've got a bow and we've got a scalloped, pointy's a bad summer camp craft project. Although, I have to commend for marketing these as the 'perfect warm weather' shoes in the midst of January, because it takes a lot of guts to disregard your audience as well as the season. But even during the brightest, sunniest Spring day, no woman should be caught wearing these. What, dare I ask, would you even wear these with? A Hillary-esque green pantsuit? (I have a little test I use with extravagant shoes: two questions. Can I wear them with my LBD? Can I wear them with jeans and a black Hanes tshirt? If they don't cut the mustard on these go-to, basic outfits, then they don't come home with me.) Believe it or not, these also come in Blue and...Fuscia. Even over 60% off, these natural disasters are better left unshopped.
