Hello fellow fashion- and shoe-lovers,

As you may have already noticed, Style Bard has to go on temporary hiatus due to a few life changes and some new time constraints. Hopefully we can get going again soon, but in the meantime it's best to wait until quality, thoughtful content can be once again ensured.

Calling a major BRB,

*Deal of the Week* Final Sale Shoes at Piperlime

Sam Edelman Pierce Boots

WAS: $300
NOW: $149.95

Don't miss out on browsing "Final Sale" items at Piperlime! Although there are no returns or exchanges, you can shop for extremely low-priced shoes before the stock sells out for good. Sure, it might help to have a few female friends or relatives with a wide variety of shoe sizes willing to take some poorly fitting soles off your hands in case of an emergency, but there's still a great chance you'll land on major savings for remarkable finds -- especially if you stick to brands you already know and love wearing. For example, that means up to 70% off on items like these "Pierce" over-the-knee boots by Sam Edelman, now more than half off their original price!

BOGO at Payless

It's that time again! This week kicked off the latest buy one, get one at 50% off sale at Payless, everyone's favorite budget shoe store. BOGO comes on the heels (haha) of a spring savings spree and probably precedes a summer sale. So pretty much, it's always a good time to save, and I love to stop by anytime I'm passing a storefront just to check out the latest -- regardless of whether the newest styles are hit or miss. Last weekend I was window-shopping these "Havana" platforms designed by Christian Siriano; although I didn't have the time to try them on for fit or comfort, I can tell you they were definitely eye-catching. They're currently $64.99 -- a fair enough price, considering you'll get your next pair for half off. They also got a great review on

*Shoes in Review* May 29 - June 4

Saturday Note from Style Bard
Even though it was two weeks ago, I know you're all dying to know what I wound up wearing on my feet as I toured NYC, since I don't own sneakers. I'm happy to report that I managed to survive in gold dress sandals all day, despite walking and ferrying all around Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, Times Square and Rockefeller. And now it's time to announce that I may actually need to buy sneakers to ... start using the gym in my new building! Yes, working out is the one time I think sneakers are actually appropriate. And maybe going to and from the gym, with stops like Jamba Juice or the laundromat on the way. Maybe.

Aldo's Hot Summer Sale is a selection of marked-down shoes that highlight the best seasonal looks (rather than cold-weather shoes or outdated styles).

40% Off Men's Reebok Shoes

To help spry shoppers get ahead of the game, Reebok is having an early Father's Day Sale. You can take 40% off men's footwear with code MEN40 -- except for the weird limitation that it excludes items with prices ending in $.98. Seriously. But don't worry, that means the discount still applies to the clean, all-purpose "Evaluate" trainer shoe that's $54.99 before your savings and comes in three colors. You can also receive Free Shipping on all orders over $79. Shopping early with Free Shipping is so much better than waiting until the last minute like I always do and then paying way too much for overnight shipping.

Last Day for Free Shipping on Vivre Shoes

Today's the last day you can shop for chic summer shoes and have your cart that totals over $50 shipped to you absolutely free! Vivre offers an array of sparkly, metallic, fun sandals and flats that'll make it easy to meet your mark, like these unique, convertible sandals with laces you can slide out and switch up according to your outfit and mood (extra laces sold separately). The "Sophia" by Phillis Morgan is a high-end shoe, and probably more than you'd usually pay for thong sandals, but they also take into consideration what features you'd need to get the most bang for your buck.

This deal is kind of insane; I feel weird typing it, that's how absurd it is. Shop Moxsie's indie shoe styles and save 50% off your order. Your whole order. For more than a month! Just use code BLOWOUT50. Yes, that's really it. The only tiny caveat here is that all sales are final, so you can't make exchanges or returns. Still! Some things are worth the risk (or revving up that eBay account...) and one of them is half off your new shoes while supporting small business owners.

Otherwise, you wind up swooning for some sale shoes only to find that it's practically sold out, except for in, like, size 5.5 and 13. Today is that magical day, so while supplies last you may want to scoot on over to and check out the 30%, 50% and 70% off shoes - including these "Lyn" wedges from Ash that I'm currently justifying in my own head, even though I hardly ever wear brown shoes - sometimes there's just too much attraction to apply logic that way, though!

Last Day for Free Bombshell Tanktop at Victoria's Secret

Sure, this post title might be a little misleading since it's not about shoes. But wait, yes it is! Because if you spend at least $60 on shoes -- like these comfy-looking suede "Ankle-Wrap Straw Wedges" at the perfect price point of $68 -- then you automatically get a "Bombshell" tank from Victoria's! The tanktop's retail value is $32, regardless of how little there is to it, so whether you're looking for something to sleep in through the summer or just want to wear this out (wherever you'd wear the mall?) you're all set when you shop for new shoes.

*Shoes in Review* May 15-21

Saturday Note from Style Bard
I have family coming to NYC to visit, and we're gonna do all that dumb tourist-y stuff I haven't done since I was a child. Although there's a lot of cost and organization involved to pull this off, my biggest concern is what shoes I'm gonna wear. Because seriously, I don't own sneakers. I'd usually go for flats but can I really wear dress flats all weekend and wander without killing my feet?? Flip-flops?? This might become a very interesting pickle. I'll keep you updated.

*Deal of the Week* Jos. A. Bank Shoes for Dad

WAS: $145
NOW: $99

Get a head start on a gift for dad by shopping the admittedly limited selection of sale shoes at Jos. A. Bank. Years ago, when SBS was a fledgling blog, this brand used to go on sale all the time and I like their stuff, so I'd try to write about it when possible. Then they started putting their shoes on sale less and less. So now, when I happen to catch wind of marked down shoes, I try to post about it -- like now! And what better timing to flaunt these marked-down designer men's shoes than just before Father's Day? Style Bard faves of the eight-piece category are these casual, dapper "Chris" Oxfords by Cole Haan. Plus, all orders over $195 ship for free.

A little less literal than some of the actual studded clogs out there, these bring the chic '70s twist we're all craving right now without too much retro heft.

Although we're used to spending $6.95 on flat-rate shipping from, the popular discount shoe website is now offering the same ground shipping offer for only $3.95. This reduced rate is in place through the end of the month. Now, not for nothing, but it only seems smart to suddenly show them how much we like this lower price by doing a lot of shopping there and showing them that a lower shipping rate will drive sales. Of course, I do always lean toward any excuse to order new shoes, like these sharp silver metallic "Lowveld" by Gabriella Rocha, already marked down 40% to $41.99 while supplies last.
