Saturday Note from Style Bard
July was officially the fastest month of this year. August makes me think of school starting again and Fall. Then again, I grew up in Florida, so my sense of seasons is a little skewed. Anyway, look out for tons of Back to School shoe sales! ~SB

*Deal of the Week* 10% Off Best-Sellers at Bluefly

For less than a week from today, you can take an additional 10% off select best-selling shoes (and apparel) at Bluefly. Typically, sale items are stuff a retailer is trying to sell from last season or clear out for new merchandise, but now you can actually save on some of the hottest styles right now, like these 'Woodstock' metallic wedges by Stuart Weitzman. They're already 46% off before your additional 10% off, which is applied at check out. Speaking of which, check out the other limited sale merchandise while this deal (of the week!) lasts by using the pre-hyperlinked button below.

New Shoe Markdowns at Shopbop

Yay! I love this announcement. New items have been added to the excellent sale selection at Shopbop, which means those shoes you were coveting yesterday (yet being fiscally responsible and refusing to purchase) are now 30-70% off whatever price they used to be! Isn't it great to be rewarded for making smart, hard choices? Options now marked down include these Tory Burch 'Rory' crochet flats, which come in two color options and are also an Editor's Pick. Now 50% off. Anyone else suddenly craving a marathon of Gilmore Girls?

Sale on ASOS Shoes

Popular UK-based retailer ASOS is now having a huge site-wide sale on shoes. Your favorite styles from across the sea are now up to 70% off, including these somewhat frightening but certainly eye-catching 'PETAL' corsage court shoes, now less than £30. Free delivery and returns on orders within the UK; but don't worry, ASOS offers fair low prices for international shipping, too!

65% Off Two Lips Shoes at 6PM

Two Lips shoes are just too cute! I love a lot of risks that the designs take, pushing the envelope with extra little details and bold color combinations. I was going to use a shoe called 'Twilite' as an example, because it paired bronze and lime green jewel tones in an interesting way, but I'm honestly so sick of Twilight hullabaloo that I couldn't bear too. Instead, check out these 'Neverland' sandals, because goodness knows Peter Pan is much more complex, fascinating and original a fictional character than Edward Cullen. But also check them out because they're now 50% off, they demonstrate such fascinating textural elements, plus the interesting choice to add animal print to the back of the heel--not a usual focal point for a shoe. Actually, check out any of the Two Lips shoes and boots at 6PM, most of which are on sale for at least 30% off their original prices. Today only, several styles are marked down even lower for prices up to 65% off.

$5 Off New Wedges from TOMS

Spring 2010 debuted the first line of wedges from TOMS. This Fall, new wedge styles are being released, anticipated to be just as popular and in-demand. You can get ahead of the style curve by getting your hands on these new looks now on the website, where styles sell for about $69. But through the end of the month, you can actually save $5. Just use code SUMMER5. And of course, for every pair you buy, as will all other merchandise on the site, a pair of shoes will be donated to a child in need. Use the button below to shop or learn more about the charitable mission behind TOMS.

Saturday Note from Style Bard
Update! First of all, I try really hard to stay organized and not post sales from the same stores back to back, but I guess I mistakenly posted two different--albeit remarkably similar--sales from Banana Republic this week (Sunday and Friday). OOPS! However, the Banana Republic shoe sale from Friday's *Deal of the Week* seems to not only be for BR Card holders. If you shop online and use code BRSAVE25, all shoppers can save 25% off their new shoes. Just thought you'd all want to know, even though that's like...three very similar shoe sales now? Oh well. Happy weekend! ~SB

*Deal of the Week* 25% Off Banana Republic Shoes

This weekend, save 25% off any Banana Republic order, including shoes, when you use your BR Card. First of all: If you don't have a BR Card, get one. It's not only great for discounts on the website and in stores, often qualifying owners for special deals, but it also works at sister-stores Old Navy, Gap and Piperlime. This is why my credit cards from this family of stores is so beat up it no longer swipes; one card with so much power is outright dangerous and yet so rewarding if you're apt to shop at these places anyway, as is Style Bard. Anyway, first you pick out your favorite merchandise totaling at least $75, such as these 'Union' pumps in one of three colors (I love the Dark Olive but also think the Black or Slate would go with anything). They may look high, but they have a padded insole as well as a platform and steady heel to keep you from teetering. Then you also have to use code BRTHANKYOU to see your discount applied. Sure there are a lot of steps, but it's also a pretty steep discount out of the blue, so card-holders just need to meet the minimum and remember to use their code in order to save big this weekend at Banana Republic.

Stuart Weitzman Shoes up to 80% Off at 6PM

Especially known for dress and wedding shoes, Stuart Weitzman consistently puts out regal footwear that women want to own. But sometimes this reputation makes me forget what gorgeous everyday shoes the brand can put out, such as these stunning 'Rollpump' wedges that are now on my must-have list. Originally selling for more than $200, these can now be mine for less than $100. All Stuart Weitzman shoes are up to 80% off their original price at 6PM. But these prices may only last for a limited time or while supplies last, so if you see something you love, buy them now. Trust me, they can't get much more reduced than this, but they can disappear from sight or go back to higher prices which will cause massive heartbreak if you're anything of a shoe fool like the Style Bard.

Two Days Left - 20% Off Converse at Piperlime

Converse is an iconic brand that has by far transpired its sports gear origins to make a permanent mark in the fashion world and music scene. And now for a limited time, all Converse brand sneakers (also known as Chuck Taylors or just 'Chucks') at Piperlime are now marked down by 20%. A range of low- and high-top styles are offered, including these laceless slip-ons favored by Style Bard. Today and tomorrow, shop men's and women's Converse sneakers (which are the same; but don't worry, they convert the sizes for you on the site) to save big--and of course, the website always ships for free.

Save on Contemporary Shoes from Bluefly

Tomorrow only, save on any pair of Contemporary Shoes you buy from Bluefly! (And yes, that's a category on the website, not an arbitrary descriptor.) Not only can you receive a special discount in this one day sale, but the discount improves the more you shop. For example, you'll save 10% on one pair of shoes, but you'll receive 15% off two pairs of shoes and 20% off three pairs! Summer styles include these eye-appealing leather thong sandals, 'Naomi' by Diane Von Furstenberg, already marked down by 30%! They come in either Blue or Pink--and yes, that's sequins on the upper for extra sparkle that dresses up your usual daytime outfit.

25% Off Clearance Shoes at Macy's

All clearance shoes are now marked down by an additional 25% at Macy's! This means that total savings are now about 45-60% off their original price, and that goes for all styles and brands. Style Bard faves are these 'Lorna' sandals from INC. Despite making such an impact with all that metallic hardware, the cream color and streamlined look basically par this hot heel down to a neutral you can wear with almost any outfit; plus, they're now about half off. To take advantage of great prices on these and other looks, you don't need to enter any codes or make any qualifying purchases--discount prices are reflected in the final total shown on the website. And that's the other thing--this sale is exclusively online, so you'll have to check it out here, but hey, at least it saves you a trip to the mall.

25% Off Banana Republic Sale Shoes

These men's shoes you're looking at? They're 'Gibson' leather driving loafers from Banana Republic. And although they originally sold for $98, they're marked down to $59.99. But wait! There's more! (Yes, I went there.) With the current deal at Banana Republic, you can save an additional 25% off your purchase of items already on sale, including women's and men's shoes.

*Deal of the Week* 30% Off Pour La Victoire Shoes

I look at a lot of shoes in life as well as in the process of writing this blog. More than anyone else I know, and certainly more than even the shoe-lovingest of fashionistas should. So believe me, it means something when I say that I could look at Pour La Victoire shoes all day long and not get bored. Each one intriguing me more than the next, checking out the shoes now on sale at is making me itch to grab my credit card. Luckily it's across the room, and I might be more lazy than greedy. But falling head over heels for each of these styles isn't bad enough--today only, these gorgeous shoes are all 30% off until midnight. You don't have to do anything but use the button below to shop. I love how interesting these simple 'Gala Silver' wedge sandals are, for example. I'd definitely go for this mustard-colored pop of Yellow, but there are five colors from which to choose. And this is just an interesting sandal--you should see the heels and boots and flats, all just as intriguing and on trend. Shop now while the sale lasts, or hell, shop anytime, because Endless has a great selection and some are even already marked down on sale.

20% Off Pre-Fall Shoes at Piperlime - One Day Sale!

I typically don't like to do two similar posts in one week, but how was I to know that Piperlime would have a sneak attack sale for pre-Fall? Today only, you can order shoes that aren't yet available at the discounted rate of 20% off. And unlike other pre-order deals, your shoes will actually ship at a regular interval, so if you aren't intimidated by the heat or being unseasonal, you can wear these shoes, boots and booties as soon as your heart desires--even if it's just around your bedroom. Plus, your order ships for free and comes with free returns. Just use code TREAT4ME when you're ready to check out to see all of your discounts and free shipping apply to shoes such as these too-beautiful 'Ariella' short boots by Report. (Bonus question: Why do I feel a little uncomfortable inside when my tastes align with Rachel Zoe's?)

If you love Shopbop's shoes as much as I do (which might be impossible, but I'll keep my mind open), then you are also going to drool over this surprise sale that allows you to take an additional 20% off shoes which have already been marked down! Choose from any on-sale shoes, use code EXTRA20 when you check out and then suffer for 3-5 business days while your amazing new bounty arrives.

Fall is coming! ...eventually. But you can start shopping now by pre-ordering items at Moxsie. And if you do, you can save 15% off on merchandise that will certainly cost more come September. You do have to register first, but I just did and it takes two seconds, do don't freak out when you go to take a gander and a little form pops up. Once you're through you can explore styles like these funky Zuriick / Caldwell canvas sneakers with a fun purple sole. No, your order will not ship until August. But at least you can do something fun with the money you saved in the meantime?

New Styles Added to Aldo Shoe Sale

I love announcements that new shoes have been added to sales. It means you can immediately jump over to check out the wares knowing that just yesterday someone bought these shoes for full price, but that you will be able to save money that they couldn't. Also, it means you get to shop the newly reduced looks before they sell out in your size. Aldo's sale selection has just been updated, so you can be among the first to take a gander. Options include these 'SLEIMAN' high-heeled peep-toe sandals, which are now 40% off their original price; I wish they were just one inch lower, but I honestly love the way they update a very on-trend menswear vibe with the staggering stiletto and sexy cut-outs. You'll also automatically receive Free Shipping on all order over $75--no codes necessary, when your shopping cart hits the mark, the shipping charges will be noted as free automatically.

Lime Tag Sale Now 50% Off

Remember this? Well the Piperlime Lime Tag sale just got even better, because styles that were originally marked down by up to 40% are now marked down by up to 50%! Sure, this means that many of the sizes in the bestselling shoes might be gone, but it also makes the hunt for the best deal that much more exciting. Sure, someone may have been smart enough to hit up the sale before you, but you get to boast that you saved an addition 10%. The lowest priced non-flip-flop non-plastic shoe are these 'Crete' sandals by Wanted. And may I just say...I want them? I know, I know, they're not like me at all. I think the buckles are tricking my brain. But they're only $19.99 right now, and still available in sizes 8, 9 and 10. And I even wear size 9! It's tempting, so very tempting. And by the way? These happen to be marked down by more than 50%. Plus they ship for free. Plus I have a credit card. Save me!

It's back! PacLoot credit means that you earn rewards for shopping at Pac Sun. For instance, this month, whenever you spend $50 on Pacific Sunwear apparel and/or shoes, you get $25 credit toward your next order. And yes, you can use this offer again and again to your hearts content (if such a thing can be bought at Pac Sun, but there's only one way to find out). Summer styles may already be marked down, such as these studded 'Jett' sandals by Roxy. Yes, this post means that Style Bard has still not yet bought her white sandals of summer, but rest assured I am on top of it. And although I do love the intrigue of these 'Jett' sandals being white (rather than the conventional 'jet black') I cannot settle yet; I must keep seeking until I find the exact perfect white sandals to carry me through until there's snow on the ground.

20% Off Hot Topic Shoes

For the entire month of July, take 20% off all orders over $45. Usually for this kind of deal you have to spend upwards of $100, so I think $45 is extremely fair--although a somewhat strange number! I'd love to know what kind of genius formula came up with it, or if it was plucked out of a hat. Anyway, all you have to do is add the correct amount to your cart and use code HTAJULY. Then get these Converse All Star Metallic Gold High Tops--or, you know, something you like, but these are what I feel like playing with in my own wardrobe right now.

I love so many of the shoes on this site, comprised of contributions from designers in Italy, Spain and Brazil. They're original, high-quality designs that really stand out from a lot of the plastic replicas that bore my eyes to death when I'm shoe scouting on the subway and on the streets of NYC. And now you can get them for 30% off their regular price! Just use code JULY4TH when you're ready to check out (even though this sale lends you an extra day to shop). Plus, several of the styles are already on sale, like these 'Haven' sandals by Wonders. An ergonomic footbed and soft leather straps make them a comfortable and stylish way to stroll confidently through summer.
