Last Day for 20% Off Crocs

Today is the last day that you can shop Crocs at Piperlime and receive 20% off your final pricetag. All you have to do us apply code HOORAY at checkout! Although I've never been the biggest fan of Crocs, I have to admit that there are a few styles worthy of consideration. One such style is 'McCall Winter' which is an enclosed ballet flat with a suede-looking upper. Unfortunately this shoe only comes in Black, because I would love to see it in some of the more bright and cheerful colors that are associated with Crocs. These cute (and presumably comfortable) everyday shoes are only $30 before your discount.

Free Shipping from Old Navy

Is it just me or are the shoes at Old Navy starting to get cuter? Despite their uninspired name, these 'Faux Leather Sandals Flats' actually have a very appealing and modern look. I'm looking forward to trying them on so that I can see of the open-toe section cuts at a flattering angle. Trust me ladies, if it's too far down your feet are going to look twice as wide, so don't even bother--even if these do come in great colors like Silver, Gold and even Pink! Now's the time to start collecting your Old Navy favorites in your online shopping cart, because when your total hits $75, your entire order will be shipped for free! You have about one week left to take advantage of this deal, which requires no codes to go into effect. These sandals will only take up about a third of that minimum so you might also want to check out boots, flats and flip-flops also available at Old Navy.

Macy's Shoes: Free Shipping & BOGO

How exciting! As part of a promotion for new Spring apparel and accessories, Macy's is offering a great deal on shoes. Not only can you receive Free Shipping on your order, but you'll also receive an astounding 50% off with the same code! When you buy two pairs of shoes from Macy's, entering FIRSTLOOK when you check out will take half off the pair with the lowest pricetag automatically, and your order ships for free. I probably buy at least 40% of my shoes from Macy's, so this is definitely one of those deals that speaks to me. And it's only good for two more days, so you may want to hurry. New arrivals include plenty of flat, platform and wedge sandals. One of my favorite looks is the sandal with the low wedge, which is typically concealed. You get a little rise in your step without compromising the comfort of a low walking sandal. The patent pair pictured above is 'Rizzy' by INC and it comes in Black or Cinnamon. And you know I love 'em because of that zipper!

Save 20% Off Piperlime Shoes

Want to save 20% off whichever pair of Piperlime shoes you choose--with few restrictions? Just pick your shoes and place them in your shopping cart, then use code L9DXF6VH4F13 to check out before midnight tonight. Here's the caveat: this is my personal code received through e-mail, so it's only going to work one time. But since I have seriously limited my shoe splurging since moving to NYC, I'm going to pass this great opportunity along to you whoever grabs it first. And if you sign up for Piperlime's newsletters, you'll also receive discounts like this through e-mail. If I were going to use this code, I'd probably want these 'Gypsy' sandals by Seychelles. The wide band at the top of the shoe should be slimming, and the peep-toe shows just the right amount of toe. For me, these would be a perfect addition for Spring. If you don't get to the code first, you can still take advantage of amazing prices on Final Sale items (which the code doesn't apply to anyway) or of course you can always shop with Free Shipping and Free Returns from Piperlime.

Free Shipping on Fit Flops from Macy's

I've written about Fit Flops before, so you all know that I'm a fan. Well if you're thinking of getting your hands on a pair, you can do so and get Free Shipping for a limited time from Macy's. All you have to do is use code COMFY when it's time to check out, and you'll be walking your way to better muscle tone in no time. Currently, Macy's shows about five different style options in a few different colors, including these 'Electra' sandals in Brown and Gold. These are the pair that I have in Black, and they come highly recommended from me! Just remember that the sizing runs a little big, so you may want to order up to a full size smaller than you're used to wearing.

*Deal of the Week* Free Return Shipping at ShopBop

Although ShopBop already offered Free Shipping on all shoe orders, they've just gotten around to adding Free Return Shipping, too! This is very exciting for me, because Free Returns are one thing I always seek when shoe shopping online. Nothing sucks worse than buying shoes, excitedly waiting for them to arrive, learning they don't fit, and then paying for that whole let-down experience when it's time to send them back. With amazing designer styles like these 'Strass Suede Caged Sandals' by Guiseppe Zanotti, it'd be easy to get your heart broken when shopping that way. But not anymore! This news is so exciting that I just had to make it this week's *Deal of the Week*. As if I needed another reason to shop here; sigh, bye-bye paycheck!

Free Shipping on Aldo Shoes

For a limited time, when you shop for Aldo Shoes online, you can have your order shipped to you for free. All you have to do is spend a minimum of $100, which is easy to do at Aldo. Especially with all of these gorgeous new arrivals for Spring 2010. Style Bard faves are these 'Cannistrato' wedges in Camel. Now, I know they look a little, well, off about them--they're somewhat reminiscent of band-aids, amirite--but what can I say? I've always been a sucker for the special shoes. These also come in Black, and they fall right at the $100 mark to meet your Free Shipping limit. No additional codes are necessary, but remember this deal will only be available for an unspecified limited amount of time, so be sure to take advantage while you can!

Today only, all CARLOS by Carlos Santana shoes are at least 60% off, with some styles as much as 80% off their original price! No codes are necessary; all you have to do is follow the link below and shop before midnight tonight. While there are plenty of closed-toe shoes, my favorites by Carlos Santana are the beachy espadrilles and sandals that remind me of the same vibe his music always brings to mind. I also love these 'Tide' wedges in Sea Green. Although they also come in Gold and Silver, this pair just reminds me of the ocean and warmer days ahead. Although the picture made me think these were glitter or sparkles at first, the textured pattern on the upper is actually a more sophisticated crackled leather. They're now selling for half off their original price. Check out these shoes and others while this one-day sale lasts at!

How about taking a break from tradition to enjoy some love-themed kicks by Ed Hardy? Okay, so maybe they profess that 'Love Kills Slowly' but they're definitely full of verve and personality! The Style Bard is not only a single gal, but she's spending Valentine's Day with her parents and sister, so I'm all about kicking convention in the kneecaps this year.

Free Shipping on Valentine's Day Shoes by Steve Madden

Steve Madden has put together a selection of Valentine's Day shoes, all of which comes with Free Shipping. Just choose from an array of red, pink, purple heels and flats, and then use code SMVDAY when you go to check out. Some of these flirty and feminine shoes are already marked down from their original price, which means that you stand to save big. Many of these shoes are perfect for date night; but then again, if you're a single gal like the Style Bard, they'd also be a nice way to treat yourself for Valentine's Day. Although they aren't necessarily the sweetest shoes of the bunch, my favorites are these 'TRIBBE' peep-toe booties in Blush. They seem very trendy and yet subtle, and would pair well with many delicate looks without pushing them over the edge into twee territory. And if it's more your style, they also come in Purple!

One Day Sale - 75% Off ASICS Sneakers

Today only, you can save up to 75% off the original price of sneakers and athletic shoes by ASICS. Simply shop the wide selection at, which includes more than 400 options for men, women and children. We all know that Style Bard is not a fan of sneakers, but there is something visually appealing about the sleek shapes and signature motion-suggestive iconography on the sides of ASICS. When shopping sneakers (a very rare occasion indeed), I tend to counter their bulky ugliness by buying them in bright, feminine colors. My most recent purchase was a pair of solid purple Adidas. That's why I favor these 'Renata' slip-ons in Silver/Violet. Eliminating the laces also adds to a more chic and streamlined look that tones down the athleticism on otherwise sturdy, breathable and supportive sneaks. These are now 60% off at only $24.00. All orders ship for the same flat rate of $6.95.

I love the Giraffe style, but other colors include metallics and some very pretty shades of Blue. If you also dig the animal print, there's also Cheetah and Zebra.

Payless BOGO Ends This Week

One week from today, the latest Payless BOGO sale will come to an end. I shopped it for a few hours a few weeks ago (yes, a few hours--I brought along some female cousins and we were all quite busy exploring the merchandise) and didn't land on two shoes I loved (they were out of my size in one) so I walked away with nothing. However, my sister bought a cute pair of purple wedges, and then returned to the store a week later to buy two more styles. Unfortunately, I cannot seem to find any of the ones she purchased on the website, but I will tell you that one pair turned out to be only $3. Way to make me proud, Big Sis! Anyway, if you are like me and think you might have missed out on some steals, I wanted to let you know that there is still time to get a great deal on two pairs of shoes from Payless. Spring's guest designers include alive+olivia, Lela Rose and Christian Seriano. My favorites include these 'Downtown Girl Open-Toe Boots' by alice+olivia, which are new for Spring. Unfortunately, I haven't had the chance to see them in person but let's just say that I hope they live up to how cute they could potentially be on me!

Skechers Shape-Ups - Save $10

Want to tone your legs while completing everyday errands? Skechers Shape-Ups are an affordable alternative to pricier work-out shoes such as those covetable MBTs. Now, I'm a fan of Fit-Flops but when it's Winter, you need something a little warmer, like these Ugg-style 'Physique' boots from Shape-Ups. Less than $100, these boots are the perfect option for strolling to the store, stomping through the snow or simply keeping your toes toasty. They come in three colors: Black, Chestnut and Chocolate. And when you buy any Shape-Ups shoes or boots, you'll receive $10 off your next order at Skechers. Some restrictions apply; for example, you can't use that coupon toward another pair of Shape-Ups. But once you have one pair to help you manage your weight and trim your thighs without an extra effort, why don't you then treat yourself to a cute pair of flats or one of the many other athletic and fashion footwear options from Skechers? Shop quickly; though you've got a month to take advantage of this deal, Shape-Ups seem to be selling out in some popular styles (such as these) pretty fast.

Saturday Note from Style Bard
February always freaks me out a little bit because it's such a short month. I was about to lament that the year is churning by so fast already but I feel like the minute I say something like that, I'm going to turn around and it will be March. On the plus side, there's still time for me to buy some new boots and justify them with cold weather before it's suddenly Spring. At which point I'll be able to justify some new wedges and sandals, so it's all good. I guess I don't mind so much that the coldest month of the year is so short after all. What about you? Are you still shopping for boots like me, looking forward to pulling out your peep-toes again, or perhaps still looking for the perfect holiday shoe that got away? ~SB

*Deal of the Week* Over $100 Off Camper Boots

To me, this week's *Deal of the Week* comes just a few inches short of being the perfect LBB--Little Black Boot. I love these Camper 'Rachael' boots because they have a low enough heel in a sturdy non-stiletto shape which means they might actually be comfortable for long hours of walking and wearing. They have an elongated toe that's rounded off rather than pointy, which gives you more options for outfits. They don't have any kind of hardware, so they can be paired with any purse or jewelry. The only problem is that I wish they were a little closer to knee-high than mid-calf; I like a tall boot. Still, I do love them overall. I also love this tidbit from the website: "The slogan “Walk. Don’t Run” expresses the Camper philosophy of slow living and in the appreciation and attention to detail. These values can be found in Camper original footwear designs created with the passion and flavor of the Mediterranean." And you've just gotta love the price: $199.50, marked down from $329.95. They also come in a gorgeous, bright Chestnut.

Bestsellers at Lugz include these men's boots, 'Drifter Lo' in the color of Coffee. They're not only military-grade strength and full grain leather, they're also padded and cushioned for comfort and shock absorption. They also come in four additional colors, but I personally favor the version shown. This style also receives rave reviews on the website, so on top of being of quality design and handsome in appearance, you know they're going to perform.

Piperlime's Best of Boots Sale

Piperlime has collected all of its bestselling on-sale boots onto one page for easier shopping; it's the equivalent of an editor's guide to affordable boots, which I find mighty helpful. With approximately 100 top-choice options, prices range from $29.99 to $319.99, so there's something for everyone. Style Bard faves are these 'Doris' boots by BCBGirls. Although I was eyeing a lot of the more casual styles with cool hardware and other fun details, I realized that the beauty for these lies in their simplicity. They can be worn with far more outfits than most other options, they will transcend the seasons better and they can be dressed up or down. My favorite little touch is the curve on the inside of the heel that keeps them modern. They're also available at a fair price point, on sale for less than $100. But there are a lot of options in every boot style and height, so check out all of the Best of Boots at Piperlime.
