Anniversary Boot Sale at 6PM

Although the sale was set to end on Sunday, it looks like you can still use old links (you can use the button below) to shop 6PM's Third Anniversary Sale. That means shopping for tons of boots specially marked down to less than $50, including these "Dondalin" ankle boots by Type Z. Even though I practically never wear brown shoes and I've never owned a pair of ankle boots, I'm completely smitten with these; and they're already 54% off for less than $50. You should check them out if not simply to check the specs and watch the product video that's included. I think video sales is an excellent way to really get a good look at merchandise with your own eyes, and I was thrilled to discover this video to check out the boots while considering my purchase. Shop these prices before the sale actually disappears!

Today Only: Clarks - 70% Off at 6PM

I can't remember which site I was on when the thought first occurred to me (I visit a lot of shoe websites), but after buying knee-high boots from Clarks two years ago, I've been thinking about investing in a pair of ankle boots or booties for this season. Something I can actually, you know, walk in--but still look chic on my way to work when it's too freezing cold to even wear high heels. Something a little more enclosed. Anyway, today is definitely the day for me to take a gander at the 700+ wares by Clarks on (about 40 of which are men's styles), because they're now marked down up to 70% off. I can't find the exact style I first laid eyes on, but what do you think of this "Un.caper" style? It's built with the flex sole and comfort fit and etc. etc. of course, but it's also sleek and doesn't look like a comfort shoe. Does it look too witch-y, too Halloween-y? Or is that just a trick being played on my mind from the black/orange contrast? Oh well; this shoe is only 40% off right now anyway; but there are plenty from which to choose at 70% off.

Last Day for 25% Off Piperlime Shoes

Today's your sole shot to save 25% at Piperlime. All you have to do is select your favorites and then use 25SPREE at checkout. New shoe arrivals are a sure bet, such as these 'Pierce' boots by Sam Edelman. I'm not always a fan of the over-the-knee look, and dread seeing its ghost this year, but I am such a sucker for military-inspired looks that I think this boot actually pulls it off. And today, it's pulling it off for 25% less! But don't worry if you miss today's sale; you can still receive 20% off tomorrow and 15% off on Thursday using a variation of the same code, 20SPREE or 15SPREE.

$15 Off Hot Topic Shoes

This one's not only super easy, it's a great deal. Spend $50 on new shoes from Hot Topic and you'll immediately be able to save $15. That's a hefty chunk of the price to erase! (But it's the weekend, so I'm too lazy to actually do the percentage math.) Just use code HTASAVE15 when you're checking out to watch your price go down on shoes like these extremely fun 'Rainbow Sequin' flats by Iron Fist. You have to visit the site and actually check out these shoes some more, they've got a super-cute pattern on the inside too. Not that anybody would ever know but you, but isn't that sort of the fun of it?

*Deal of the Week* 20% Off Designer Shoes at Macy's

You know how sometimes there's a great shoe sale, and you think you're going to finally cave and buy those uber-expensive designer brand shoes you've always coveted? You work up the willpower and check your bank balance and make room in the closet, only to find out that designer shoes are the only ones NOT on sale?? It's soooo frustrating. But this weekend, Macy's 20% off sale covers even the brands that are typically excluded, such as these new 'Dannika' boots by Frye. All you have to do is spend at least $99 and use code VIP20 when you're about to check out. Oh, and did I mention that this deal also comes with Free Shipping? Because it does. So you really have no excuses this time. Better start clearing some space for your new shoes' new home.

Extra $30 Off Your First Bluefly Order

If you've somehow escaped the siren song of Bluefly before, you might just be in luck. That's because new shoppers are being granted an extra $30 off their first orders of at least $150. All you need to do is enter AFF30 when you're ready to check out. Woefully, Style Bard fell to the siren song of this shoe site right away, so I no longer qualify. But if I did, I'd be heading straight toward something like these Alberto Fermani 'Bordeaux stitched tall boots, which also come in Dark Green or Tobacco. They just look so effortless and comfortable, don't they? You'd almost never suspect the price tag (even though it is already 40% off before your $30 off), but I'd imagine they'd last you the rest of your life. Aren't really wonderful, sturdy designer shoes supposed to do that?

Shoe Clips Giveaway

Way back in May, I had the opportunity to visit Accessories the Show at the Javits Center in NYC. I met the wonderful ladies who own and run, which sells beautiful, versatile accessories for your shoes. While these items deserve a post all their own--describing not only their cuteness but how the business came to be--for now I just want to let you know that you can win your very own vintage shoe clips simply by submitting your e-mail address. Vintage clips are often collected, not created, so they're more than just throwback styles; they're the real deal. The ones pictured above are called 'Amber Waves.' I love finding new ways to wear my Shoe Clips (a few weeks ago I pinned my hair up with them!) and I know you will, too! So definitely enter to try to win by using the button below.

Last Day for Free Shipping on Macy's Women's Shoes

Splurge on a fabulous new pair of fall shoes at Macy's, and you can have these beauties shipped for free. What's the catch? Just spend $75 before attempting to check out, and then use code FALLMAGIC in its special little checkout box. Even if you want to dip into this crazy clog trend and wind up with something clunky like these heavy, hippy 'Carnee' clogs by Steve Madden, yup--it still ships for free. And, in the case of the 'Carnee' style, they're also already on sale for about $40 off their original price, while supplies last. Although, Style Bard's firm opinion on this whole concept only makes her think that these--and the women who choose to buy and wear them--should instead be called 'carnies'--but that's just me.

Style Bard Falls in Love

I look at a lot of shoes everyday; trust. And although I crush on shoes time and again, I do tend to reason out my purchases and am swayed by the practical--by focusing on what's really needed to round out my growing collection. After all, little shoes don't feed themselves; that is to say, I have a limited amount of space in my NYC apartment in which to keep my lovely collection, and I do have to eat. So I cannot just buy and bring home every stray pair of shoes I covet. However, I think this time it's the real deal. Love. I can't stop wishing that I had these 'Twins Jardin' ballet flats by Camper. Oh, I know they don't have all the dazzle and hardware and trend appeal that I usually long for, but they would simply go with every single outfit and they're just so unique and pretty and perfect. And, I found them in Moxsie's sale section! So, you ask, what's keeping me from my happily-ever-after? Well, they are sold out in my size. Of course. Blessing in disguise? Perhaps. For now, I've asked Moxsie to help me locate a pair in my size, a service that I've never tried before. I'll let you know if they get back to me. In the meantime, if you're a size 8, you should swoop in fast and adopt these gorgeous orphans. If you're not, check out some of the other great steals on this site.

Puma Sneakers - 70% Off at 6PM

Puma sneakers are on sale at; and today's the last day that those prices span up to 70% off their original retail price. I pretty much only associate athletic footwear with this brand, but there are definitely some more interesting and trendy options that I didn't know existed. For example, would you get a load of these 'AMQ Skin Luxe Wns'? Those are sparkly as a Cullen, but probably far more intellectually stimulating (oooh, burn). I'm not only fond of this shoe because it allowed me to make a completely random Twilight diss, but I also like them since they go so well with the Jessica Simpson oxfords I posted last week. Oh, and I adore the fact that although they used to sell for $900(!) they're now on sale for a waaaaay more affordable $270. The money you save can be used toward buying back your soul for getting my Twilight joke. No codes or minimum purchases are necessary, just shop by using the button below.

*Deal of the Week* Zappos Modern Vintage Platforms

Despite the site's outstanding customer service, I have to admit that I sometimes hate browsing Zappos because it can seem a little overwhelming and disorganized at times. But at least once I get the search perimeters set so that I've got a cache of wonderful shoe thumbnails staring me down, the deals more than make up for the effort that was put into shopping at Zappos. For example, clearance shoes currently include these dignified-yet-sexy 'Georgie' platform heels by Modern Vintage that're on sale for more than $100 less than they were first sold. Without any flash or hardware or bling (even the zipper at the back is all but concealed) they make a powerful impact. Because I can't stop looking at them (and can actually afford them!), they're this week's *Deal of the Week*.

10% Off Back-to-School Sneakers

So your kids have probably headed off to their first day of school already, and a lot of the advance sales on back-to-school shoes have also already ended. But let's be real; not everyone is always on time and on schedule. I'll admit; I for one always used to buy a lot of my new school clothes several weeks into the semester. If you're still seeking great Back to School sales, you can check out the discount from Lugz that lasts all month. It's 10% off any pair of back-to-school shoes with the code BTS10. There are no other minimums, and I believe it will work on even non-kid shoes. But Style Bard faves for school-aged shoe-lovers are these cushioned 'Dyse One STP' sneakers with pink graphic graffiti print.

Sad that all the great Labor Day sales are over and it's not yet time to shop Fashion's Night Out? Don't worry, Style Bard will be here all week as usual linking you to hot shoe deals to tide you over in the interim. One amazing sale that's left over from the holiday weekend is 25% off at Bluefly--but today's the last day, so hurry it up, late poke! (It's like a slow poke, but late, see?) By taking even more off the cost of designer merchandise that's already been reduced, this discount lets you save up to 80% off impressive shoes like these one-of-a-kind 'Ferox' bootie heels by Velvet Angel. Is that some kind of ferocious fox? Because if so, I think it's the perfect name for these suede, gold-heeled platforms in blood red--now 40% off their original price for a very limited time.

The Walking Company's Tax Free Labor Day Weekend

If your Labor Day Weekend is anything like mine, instead of relaxing and kicking loose for three days, you're darting all over the place sightseeing, visiting family and completing activities that are extremely, well, active. I've been getting through all of this in flip-flops, actually, enjoying some of the last days I'll be able to get away with wearing them (if this weekend's weather up north was any indication). But the idea of grabbing up some comfort shoes is definitely also appealing. You can buy supportive, ergonomic shoes from the best brands out there from The Walking Company. And this weekend, there's no sales tax on any of your purchases. And? You can take an extra 25% off sale shoes, such as these extremely trendy Pikolinos 'Formentera' sandals. And! They even ship free for all orders over $100. So if your feet feel like mine do right now, you might want to stop by and see what's available before these amazing holiday sales expire.
