*Deal of the Week* Foot Petals Stiletto Stylist Kit

Now that it's summer, when we don't have an excuse to stuff our feet in ugly sneakers and winter boots (for warmth, we protest), suddenly we're looking for ways to trek around all day without killing our feet--while letting our feet breathe and showing off our new summer pedicures. So, naturally, everyone's flocking out to get Fit Flops (more on these next week) or MBTs; something comfortable and atheletic, and a little more supportive than a thong between our toes. Of course, for the sake of comfort, women are once again forced to compromise beauty. Well, no more. I suggest saving the effort and getting a Foot Petal kit from Zappos. For only $50, you can wear all of your gorgeous high-heeled sandals without worry of foot pain. The Stiletto Stylist Kit (pictured) comes with insoles, back-of-heel cushions, heel cushions and ball-of-foot cushions. They don't just add comfort and support as you walk, they add grip between your sole and the shoe, so your weight's not sliding down against the shoe straps, creating additional pain. And if you are still leaning a little heavily on your thongs or sandal straps, the kit also comes with strap cushions to provide extra comfort. Every piece can be trimmed down to fit into even the slimmest pair of sandals. Foot Petals kits allow you to keep your style while strutting for hours on end in any pair of shoes, so instead of investing in a new pair of ugly athletic sandals for summer, try these first. If the whole kit doesn't appeal to you, Zappos also carries an assortment of different packages and comfort shoe options ranging $40-$64.

Piperlime Sweet Deal Event

The Piperlime Sweet Deal Event means that a wide assortment of styles have just been marked down by 30%. Style Bard faves are these colorful 'Nilla' sandals by Enxo Angiolini; they're a trendy style, but the color makes them stand apart. Seen here in Turquoise, these sandals are also available in Black and Brown. I also like that they have a slight wedge heel, which will provide that extra bit of arch support (as opposed to the flat style of this shoe). The Piperlime Sweet Deal Event applies to women's shoes, children's shoes and men's shoes.

Sale on Lacoste Shoes at 6PM

For a limited time, all styles of Lacoste shoes are only $44.95 at 6PM. That means if you're in the market for flats, sneakers or sandals for Summer, you can get the real deal for up to $70 off retail value. Since we all know I don't particularly like sneakers, and because everyone knows what Lacoste sneakers look like anyway, Style Bard faves are these 'Laurie Gloss' flats in Burgundy (they're actually a dark pink, as you can see), which are also available in Mandarine and White. They're down from $134.00, making them 66% off their original price!

$20 Off Your New Shoes from PacSun

On the heels (hee) of yesterday's 20% off deal, I've got another one for you. When you spend $40 at PacSun (nee Pacific Sunwear), you can redeem $20 in PacLoot. That means next time you head to the website for new summer wear, you'll be able to knock $20 off the price with no minimum expense qualifications. And if you shop both times before June 5th? Your orders will ship for free. It's really free money, so if you're thinking about a new sun dress and a pair of sandals I nominate PacSun as your go-to while this deal lasts. Style Bard faves are these chic O'Neill 'Rome' slide sandals for less than $30 in Black and Brown. (Meanwhile, I just noticed that sandals are buy one, get one 50% off; that may need to be another post but hey, I think you can combine all of these offers so go for it!)

All styles of Bella Vita 'it's-a-beautiful-life' shoes are only $19.95 from 6PM for a limited time. That means you can save almost 80% off luxury comfort shoes. I adore these Pewter Grey 'Donna' loafers, because they're so subtle and stylish, mature and elegant--but also just casual, everyday shoes. So you can look a little more dressed up on a daily basis without actually slipping on a pair of heels. They were originally $89.95, but now they're 78% off at $19.95. On Sunday the price goes back up, so grab these now if you want 'em. They also come in a variety of other colors, as well as a backless style.

Robert Tabor's Sole Sensations


...or suddenly inspired to hit Nordstrom on your way home from work for some new heels? It's really a toss-up for me, too.

I came across some of these pieces on display at a food and wine tasting banquet in South Florida several months ago, and I took home the artist's brochure and business card only to lose them (oops)--until today.

Robert Tabor is an artist who creates wonderful centerpieces and objets d'art using the classic woman's shoe shape for inspiration. Previous works include 'Cherry Pie Mule' (shown above), 'Pickle Pump' and 'Brisket Flip-Flop' (the latter is really a must-see for sandwich lovers). Non-food-themed shoe sculptures include variations on 'Holiday Heels' as well as movie-themed shoes from pictures such as Wizard of Oz, Hello Dolly! and Breakfast at Tiffany's. Another favorite of mine is 'Shoe Fly Shoe':

The artist breathes new life into broken-down heels with metals, acrylics, beads, crystals, leathers, foam and feathers--and, of course, loads of whimsy and imagination.

Style Bard Splurges

Hey, it's been awhile since we had one of these! So here are some of the shoes I've picked up since November 2008:

I don't recall all of the prices and stories involved, but here's an approximate summary (from the top left, clockwise):

Black Pumps from Goodwill - $4.50 (Click for more info.)
BCBGirls Chunky Mary-Janes - $30.00
Nine West Flats - $80.00
Shane & Shawn Sandals - $40.00 (More on these later.)
Dress Shoes from Macy's - $20.00

Hmmm, about $175 in half a year on shoes? Not fantastic, but not too bad. I only paid full price on the Nine West shoes, and I do recall the story there--the flats I brought on vacation with me broke. It was kinda a shoe emergency. Guess we'll see how the rest of the year goes!

Save up to 25% off today when you buy new shoes from Banana Republic. Enter code BRSAVE to take 15% off orders of at least $100, 20% off $150, and 25% off $250.

Since it's Mother's Day, I guess I should be like everyone else and make this post about it. Let's see...did you enjoy breakfast in bed but would have preferred new shoes? Shop Banana Republic. Are you a mother with negligent kids? Don't hold your breath waiting for a gift you really want; shop Banana Republic. Are you a grandmother? That counts! Shop Banana Republic. Are you a female who doesn't have kids but wants to one day (when you have the right career and meet the right man and the stars align, of course)? Get a head start and buy yourself something nice today (it's like a motivational tactic). Are you a girl with no desire to ever have kids? We'll call this one a freebie; buy yourself some anti-Mother's Day shoes. Are you a single father? Go ahead, treat yourself to men's shoes from BR. Are you a male in the process of a sex change operation who either has or may one day have kids? Shop BR shoes for men--or women. Do you now or did you ever have a mom? know the drill. Shop BR.

Phew. I think that's just about everyone. And since we're talking about such a variety of shoppers, I suggest these 'Jacky' platform pumps in Black as the wardrobe staple for every woman; they're a classic style, a classic shape and they also come in Beige and Brown. But do you really need a reason to buy new shoes today? If you're a SBS reader, I highly doubt it. So for no reason whatsoever, head to Banana Republic now to scope the deals while they last. Oh, and...Happy Mother's Day!

Leopard Pony Hair Studded Pump by Dolce and Gabbana

Oh, hello Aunt Gerty. I didn't realize I'd accidentally stumbled into your shoe closet. But why are these out? It's far too warm to be wearing pony hair pumps. Oh, you're packing for a weekend-long bingo tourney with the gals in Atlantic City? I see. Carry on, then.

But anyone other than my Aunt Gerty needs to seriously get their eyes checked (and their wallets confiscated) if they're thinking about purchasing these hideously embellished shoes. I don't care if they're Dolce and Gabbana. Heck, I wouldn't care if those are 2-carat diamonds emblazoning the toe. Considering that these sell for upwards of $700 dollars, I just want to know how on Earth such a reputable brand can make a pair of shoes look so cheap?
