Happy Halloween! 20% Off Hot Topic Shoes

Sure it's too late to be buying accessories for your costume, but that doesn't mean today's festivities might not have you in the mood for some spooky, edgy shoes. As you come down off your candy high, take a look at these 'Blood Splatter' heels that you just know Dexter Morgan would love--and you will too, because they're already on sale before your additional holiday savings. Today's the last day that Hot Topic shoes are on sale for 20% off when you spend at least $40. Save some Twix for me and have a marvelous Halloween!

*Deal of the Week* Breast Cancer Awareness at Zappos

It seems so soon, but October is finally coming to a close. In the first week of this month, Style Bard Shoes featured Pink Shoes for Breast Cancer Awareness. So instead of closing out the month with a post devoted to Halloween, this last *Deal of the Week* is devoted to brands at Zappos that are donating a percentage of their proceeds to Breast Cancer Awareness initiatives. Use the button below for a complete list of participating brands that sell products that will not only look amazing on you, but help women around the world. Including these New Balance 'Komen' slip-on cushioned sneakers which, of course, contribute to the Susan G. Komen foundation. They're less than $60 and come with Free Shipping and Free Returns.

Buy any shoes from Bluefly; go ahead. You're going to immediately save 10%. All you have to do is use the button below and shop before midnight tonight. How about rewarding yourself with some Alaia? You might as well splurge if you're going to save. It's hard to pick just one Style Bard fave, but how about these grommet booties that are so simply and easy to wear with different looks, yet so full of visual interest and inspiring possibility. And they're already 20% off before your additional 10% off savings.

Mid-Season Sale at Shopbop

New markdowns have been added to the sale area, where designer items can be found for 30%, 50% or 70% off! These new deductions are part of the mid-season sale, presumably in order to make way for new winter merchandise. Remember, sale items aren't restocked, so it's first come first serve. Before they sell out, you might want to get your mitts on something like these very special "Winston" by Report Signature that allow you to stand out with over-the-top, over-the-knee style. And I don't know why this doesn't surprise me, but they've taken pains to point out that this item? Cannot be gift wrapped. Guess you'd better just be buying them for youself!

Happy Birthday Piperlime! -- $25 Off Shoes

Today is Piperlime's birthday! And do you know what that means? It means that you get to save $25 on your new shoes. Place any order before midnight tonight, and you'll receive $25 toward your next Piperlime purchase. But that's not all--one in every 100 customers will actually earn a surprise credit of $100 off their next order! Either way, once you factor in the Free Shipping & Free Returns, it's silly not to go ahead and venture on those fall shoes you've been eyeing, since you stand to ultimately save $25-$100. Style Bard faves are these new KensieGirl "Ramina" forester-style military boot for less than $80.

Last Day - 50% Off Sale and Clearance Aldo Shoes

For some reason, Aldo has two sections. One is called Sale and one is called Clearance. Both of these reduced shoe areas are covered by the sale that's ending tonight, and that's a whopping 50% off the lowest price (although current shown prices are the discount). This deal is easily demonstrated by these season-transitional 'Vares' high heels, which were first $100 and are now on sale for $50. Plus, receive Free Shipping on orders totaling at least $80.

Lord & Taylor Friends and Family Event

Save 25% off almost any purchase at Lord & Taylor--just because! How can you resist, right? This goes not only for regular-price shoes but also sale items. That means when you use code FRIENDS at checkout, these sophisticated, romantic Isola "Gabriella" tall suede boots, which were originally over $250, will be less than $150 at final sale. That's pretty damn fantastic. But I genuinely cannot figure out when this deal is supposed to expire, so that's certainly one reason to shop fast.

*Deal of the Week* Kelsi Dagger at Moxsie

Kelsi Dagger is a shoe designer who's causing quite the stir. The main item of interest are these "Tiffany" pumps in Black or Pink suede with a detachable bow that changes the look of the shoe with each wear. Although these hot-topic heels aren't actually marked down, they are less than $100. And if you visit, you'll find several more trendy Kelsi Dagger options that are marked down from their original prices, including boots, sandals and flats.

One Day Only - AK Anne Klein Shoes Less Than $29.95

Today's your shot to shop AK Anne Klein shoes in various styles all under $30. While this is indeed a great bargain, especially if you are like me and desperately need some new office shoes, I was unsure about posting about it until I feel for these understated, slightly metallic "Grander" flats for $29.95. I can't put my finger exactly on what makes me crave them, especially since I'd just as soon tear flowers off anything I was wearing. But these are just sweet and simple and lovely--and on sale! Maybe the point and demure color keeps them from being too twee? Thoughts?

Halloween Shoes at Shoebuy

I did not actually know this, so it's a good thing they sent me an e-mail to tell me, but did you know that Shoebuy has Halloween shoes? Brands that make shoes that scream Halloween include Funtasma, Demonia, Pleaser, Luscious, Bordello--I swear those are shoe brands and not porn titles. Personally, as mentioned before, I'm looking for blue shoes to go with my super secret Halloween costume, so I could go with these 'Teeze 09' by Bordello, I just have to convince myself I'd actually wear them again--New Year's Eve? Of course, since Lady Gaga is reportedly the most popular costume of 2010, you might prefer checking out something like this. And there's always Free Shipping and Free Returns from Shoebuy.

10% Off Wide Designer Shoes

Not all feet are made alike, but there's no reason that soles of every shape and size shouldn't benefit from a wide array of shoes. For one week only, take 10% off any wide shoes available at Designer Shoes. This site has shoes from size 4 to 15 (yes those numbers are accurate) in every width from narrow to standard sizes to triple wide (EEEE or WWW). Although I wear average-width shoes on a regular basis, I always used to buy wide shoes when I worked in restaurants and had to be on my feet all day. Similarly, I like the idea of buying wide boots because you can wear thick socks in frigid winter months. When I put in my size and width, for example, I located these Sofft suede boots, "Frederica." They come in four colors and are just one of many options for your ultimate comfort and style regardless of your shoe size.

Saturday Note from Style Bard
Although I've been sort of snickering at girls overeager to whip out their knee-high and over-the-knee boots from last season at the moment the temp drops below 80, I think today marks the official weather change to justify your wardrobe change. I'm freezing! So go ahead now; you were going to wear those boots and tights this week anyway, but now you have Style Bard's permission. ~SB

When you purchase any pair of Uggs from The Walking Company (online only), you'll receive a free Zealand knit scarf, valued at $20. Styles for this season feature the 'Jillian,' an almost riding-style boot that comes in four colors, including Charcoal. The height (knee-high) and streamlined suede exterior add a little extra chic to a brand known more more casual footwear. And of course they're internally lined with the renowned sheepskin insulation that's removable--making it not only transitional from day to night but from season to season, too!

These aren't summer season sandals or last year's looks, they're fresh favorites and yet they're still marked down for your ease of shopping for a short while. And I'll tell you why I loved these Vince Camuto 'Coco' booties instantly--well, not I won't, but I'll hint for now: my Halloween costume may involve needing any shoes in Blue. If you're wondering: Does Style Bard only ever worry about what shoes she's going to wear on Halloween, and then build the rest of her outfit around that? Rest assured, the answer is yes. If you are not wearing my costume in particular, you may be more interested in Coco in Black.

Somehow the universe hiccuped and I'm only just now discovering this amazing shoe sale resource, You can save well over 50% off amazing styles of designer shoes, from brands like Christian Louboutin, Valentino and Burberry, including these Jimmy Choo 'Jazz Leopard-Print Pumps,' which are now 55% off their original selling price (and yes, TheOutNet says they're Fuscia, so they technically count for Pink Week). But let me tell you, you need to act fast on this website because the shoes sell out super-fast. I almost didn't even want to share this with you, because yes, I am that selfish.
