New Year's Eve Shoes

I love New Year's Eve because it means you get to dress up, hit the town and wear whatever suits your fancy. Although I typically prefer a house party with tons of friends and fabulous food, my co-hosts and I pick a year every few years to add a theme or dress code to the invitations--just to spice up the night. Because while you're going to be partying to the wee hours and it's just as tempting to throw on something comfortable as you stuff your face and get drunk off your ass, when you think about it, aren't New Year's Eve pictures the ones that get passed around all year long and used in every online photo album from now until forever? I think so. If you're going to go down in infamy wearing whatever you don on New Year's Eve, then why not dress to the nines? If I had my druthers, this year's look for me would include a skimpy, sparkly LBD and these fantastic one-night-only 'Vanderbuilt' heels by Report, which come with Free Shipping from Zappos. They are the quintessential high heel for New Year's Eve.

*Deal of the Week* Additional 10% Off Aldo Shoes

This weekend only, and exclusively online, you can take an extra 10% off any shoes at Aldo. All you have to do is use code EXTRA10DEC when you're ready to check out. Additionally, all orders over $100 qualify for Free Shipping while other orders ship for a flat rate of only $5. Style Bard loves browsing the sale selection at Aldo, because the styles are typically in-season and on-trend, just at a reduced price. For example, sale boots include these chunky 'EMAMI' boots in Black, Brown and Taupe (shown) for about 30% off, while other boots are up to 50% off their original price. Any of these details alone would be excellent--10% off, free shipping, sale pricing--but altogether they could only be a *Deal of the Week*.

Free Shipping on Victoria's Secret Shoes

When you spend $50 on Victoria's Secret shoes, you'll receive Free Shipping--and it will arrive on time for Christmas. Just be sure to use code 50FREE when you're ready to checkout. Spending this minimum will be easy to do, because boots are currently marked at $69-$99 dollars. As it just so happens, my birthday is this month, and I am an Angel cardholder. Therefore, I get $10 to spend at Victoria's Secret this month. So will I be checking out these sale shoes? You betcha. I have yet to buy my once annual pair of knee-high boots. Right now, Style Bard faves are these sleek, sophisticated 'Cap-Toe Booties' by Colin Stuart. Although I have to ask...have we totally forgone and forgotten the ankle boot? Because trends aside, that's what these look like to me. Be sure to check for other discounts while you're on the website; low prices and free shipping may be combined with other great sales and deals.

But today only, you can receive either 65% off all MICHAEL by Michael Kors shoes or 60% off all Franco Sarto shoes.

One Day Sale on Lugz Shoes

This is a pretty major one-day sale: 40% off all order totals from Lugz. All you have to do is pick from among a selection of work boots and practical, weatherproof shoes and then enter code PERFECT09 when it's time to checkout. These 'Engine Boots' would have been perfect for NYC residents who were trapped traversing the city blocks through puddles and persistent rain yesterday. My friend, for example, ended up with his shoes and socks soaked through, which made him quite unhappy! Not only are these mid-calf boots waterproof, but they're lined with insular sheepskin for added warmth. If you've yet to purchase some sturdy galoshes or winter boots for slushy, rainy, gross days, then check out the options from Lugz while this sale lasts.

$20 Off Hot Topic Shoes

When you spend at least $75 on your total order from Hot Topic, you'll see $20 discounted automatically when you go to check out! Plus, right now Hot Topic is offering an ongoing promotion where all footwear for boys and girls is 25% off! So if you combine these offers, you're ultimately going to save big on your new shoes. On-sale boots include these Volatile Black Grommet Skull Boots and I want them. There, I said it, and I do not fear your judgment because they're awesome and I can totally pull them off. Factually, the only reason they're not sitting in a storage unit awaiting shipment to my house right now is because they don't have 9.5 in stock, which I'd prefer so I can wear them with thicker socks this Winter. Otherwise they would so be mine right now; all mine.

*Deal of the Week* New Markdowns at ShopBop

Two weeks ago, new shoes were added to ShopBop's sale selection. That means there's still time to snag designer shoes for up to 70% off. If you wait much longer when great shoes go on sale at this popular boutique, they're often sold out in mainstream sizes. There's nothing so disappointing as to fall in love with an otherwise unattainable designer shoe--and its new low price--only to discover that they just sold out on all sizes 6-9. Style Bard faves are these 'Platform Suede Booties' (and the strap is removable), but I actually love all of the DSQUARED2 sale shoes. You'll also be a fan if you're into MIU MIU by Prada or L.A.M.B. by Gwen Stafani. Don't worry, most 6.5-11 sizes in this style are still available, but I thought I should make this announcement a *Deal of the Week* before holiday sweeps wipe out even more of this fabulous discount stock.

Last Day to Save 30% Off Crocs at Piperlime

Today is the last day to save 30% on Crocs from Piperlime. All you have to do is add Crocs to your shopping cart and plug in code CROCTASTIC when you're ready to check out, and you'll see 30% discounted from the price of the Crocs. Did you know that Crocs offers many, many more styles than those ugly sandals that swept the nation a few years back? You can actually snag some decent styles, including flats and even winter boots. Although you will probably still never see me parading around NYC in a pair of Crocs, out of all the available options I have to say my faves are these 'Lydia Winter' wedges in Black. The upper, which I originally guessed to be suede, is actually velvet. They're probably not waterproof, but I can see how they'd make a great alternative to sneakers or flats with a casual outfit on a dry day. Styles for men and children and infants are also available.

For today only, you can receive an automatic deduction of 20% off your total purchase from Reebok! All you have to do is choose any item from Reebok, place it in your shopping cart, and use code STOCKING when you're about to check out. You'll see 20% taken off your entire order. But wait; there's more! Your order will automatically qualify for Free Shipping and Free Returns. No that is a mighty fine deal, if I may say so myself. Style Bard faves are these EasyTone 'Go Outside' sneakers for women. Not only am I attracted to the Black and Gold coloring, but I'm especially intrigued by the sole technology which supposedly makes it feel like you're walking on sand--which is one of the best forms of exercise for your legs and bum. If you want to get an even better workout just from walking around outside, these are the sneakers for you. And if you're in the market for workout sneakers, then today is certainly the day to shop at Reebok, because this deal will disappear by tomorrow.

Free Boots Giveaway!

Here it is, fellow shoe-lovers, the highly anticipated free boot giveaway! All you need to do is become a fan of Shoe Envy on Facebook (and leave a comment here to let me know you've done so) and you'll be entered for a chance to win a free pair of Bronx boots and a pair of Jean Straps. Two runners-up will also win Jean Straps, the innovative easy-to-use tool that lets you easily keep your pants straight and tidy while tucked into boots.

Entering is easy! Simply:

1) Become a fan of Shoe Envy on Facebook.

2) Leave a comment on this blog post to let me know you're a fan!

3) A winner will be chosen and announced two weeks from today (December 20th)!

You can pick your favorite Bronx style from Shoe Envy, and bearing availability in your size, your free boots will be shipped to you pronto! Aren't free prizes fun?

About Shoe Envy
Shoe Envy is a women's fashion footwear retailer based in the United Kingdom with shipping to most countries, including the United States! Brands featured include Camper, Fly London, Moda in Pelle, Emu Australia, Rocket Dog and Dr. Martens. They also sell my personal favorites, Irregular Choice. Check it out; shopping outside of your area code is a great way to snag unique styles from brands you might not have even heard of before! The boots pictured above are 'Goose' by Bronx. Shoe Envy also sells sandals, heels, flats and sneakers.

About Jean Straps
Jean Straps were designed by fashionistas who were sick of tucking pants into their boots only to have them hitch up and bunch throughout the day. A discreet and comfortable stirrup solves that problem efficiently, leaving pants straight and smooth despite long hours of wear. I imagine this is one of those handy tools you won't be able to live without once you've had it awhile. I even have this problem with skinny jeans if I've walked around long enough, and I for one am sick of un-zipping and re-zipping by boots on the subway to make adjustments. And not that I own pull-on boots, but I imagine those are even worse. But three lucky winners won't have to worry about that extra little nuisance anymore.

One last thing: Claim a friend who also enters and both of you will receive an extra entry in the drawing. Just let me know you're associated in the comments. Good luck to all participants!

At, all styles of sporty shoes by Lacoste (and there are more than 400 options!) are 55% off for today only. Browsing through page after page, I kept locating cute styles that I might actually wear. Since I'm so sneaker-phobic and athletically disinclined, I've always written off Lacoste as a brand that is not for me. But now I kinda want a pair? Oh, I am so confused! Style Bard faves are these 'Ithia Suede' flats in a color that is called Wine/Milk. Despite conjuring horrific tastes in my mouth, the shoes are actually terribly cute and would work well in a sporty/preppy wardrobe.
