Choose My Shoes

Guys this is really exciting because I tend to never win anything--except I used to win the cake walk every year at the Fall Festival (in some divine fit of irony because I was a chubby kid)--but I won a gift certificate to shop at And I want your help! I've whittled it down to ten options, so now I need you to comment and vote on what new shoes will be entering my life in the near future.

1) Kir Sten by Luichiny - $84.55

2) Lexi by Michael, Michael Kors - $94.05

3) Bella by MIA - $65.55

4) Denah by Steven by Steve Madden - $179.99

5) Amethyst by Anne Klein New York - $82.95

6) Florina by Betsey Johnson - $82.95

7) Gabrielle by Frye - $131.60

8) Nora by Michael, Michael Kors - $142.50

9) Fireworks by Two Lips - $70.70

10) Raw by Naughty Monkey - $55.30

So which do you like? If you have a reason for your vote, please do tell me why!

40% Off TOTES Isotoner Sale Center

If you're so inclined, today's the last day you can save on TOTES Isotoner slippers, sandals sandals. Yes, you read that right. Wedding sandals. I really don't have the words for this. I know it's a long day, I know you're on your feet, I know you want to dance. But these? Are not okay for the bride or bridal party to be wearing on the big day. Even if you got a fabulous pedicure. Maybe if you're literally standing on a sandy beach, but even then, can't you spring for a runner and go for something with a little pizazz, like Stuart Weitzman? Ah, well. To each her own, I always say. But that doesn't mean I'm not going to judge you, at least a little bit. Although those special-occasion, rhinestone-bedecked ESNY "Stone Shield Thong Flats" are already marked down from $20 to $12, you can save an additional 40% by shopping via the button below (that's a total price of about $7.20 for the math-impaired). Enjoy!

*Deal of the Week* Shoe Shopping with

There were so many great deals this week, it was hard to pick a *Deal of the Week* that would top them. Instead, I'm going to tell you about using to comparison shop for shoes. You can use the button below to be taken directly to the Shoe category of this search site. From there, you can select a list of your shoe-shopping criteria, from size to color to price (I frequently prefer to browse by brand), and narrow down your selection from thousands and thousands of styles. Your final selection of shoes is a brief overview that lets you find the shoe you're seeking at the best price from across the Web--most often with Free Shipping. For example, by searching for "Dress Shoes" and then choosing "Betsey Johnson" and "-$200" I was able to quickly locate these suede "Itsy" pumps for $99.95 at $50 cheaper than they're selling for at Nordstrom's.

Planet Shoes: Operation Clean Sweep

Poetic Licence Miss Betty

You need to check out Planet Shoes right now. The entire site is marked down by up to 80% off original pricing, with an additional 20% off clearance shoes. It's call Operation Clean Sweep, and it means old stock is being hauled out to make way for new (and regretfully fully priced) merchandise. It also means that competition is keen; you want to snag your favorites before they sell out in your size, because the site won't be replenishing many of the styles now shown. It might be your last chance to get your hands on these supremely fun 'Miss Betty' pumps by Poetic Licence that were originally $139, but are now $59.98 (also available in Cranberry). And you don't need to meet shopping minimums or use codes or anything and Free Shipping both ways--so, you know, seriously, click below to check it out ASAP.

Boots Under $50

If yesterday's disgusting, slushy freeze tells us anything, it's that there's still plenty of time to wear boots before we can all cash in our expectations of spring. And that means you should check out 6PM's selection of boots under $50 (click on the button below to go there directly) that are only guaranteed to stay at this price point through Friday. You've got everything from sexy booties to heavy-duty, weatherproof winter boots. And we're talking about some pretty serious savings, too, like these "Raven" ankle boot by Steve Madden that used to be $150 and are now $45 (available in three colors). Check out the great "video description" feature as well for even better views and more information about these shoes.

Last Day - 2-Way President's Day Sale at GAP

There's not one but two possible ways to save when you buy Gap shoes--and both of them end tonight. First of all, you can check out the selection in the "Up to 44% Off 44" section, where one item for every president has been selected and marked down this weekend. Or, you can shop online and take 30% off any item with code GAPSALE30. However, both sales can't be combined. These suede wedge booties are 20% off in the first sale, so they can't be purchased for 30% off. But don't worry, no matter what there's always Free Shipping on orders over $50.

*Shoes in Review* February 13-19

Saturday Note from Style Bard
I've been on my feet so much lately I've resorted to age-old tricks like wearing shoes with an uncomfortable heel one day, followed by shoes that rub the toe the next. You know, rotation. Moderation. Maybe I've just got to learn to splurge on cab rides more often. I think I need to commit to a week of flats or something else impossible in the near future, but for now I'm just relaxing in bed with some cozy socks and wondering what high heels I'll wear out tomorrow. I actually have a fun (and long!) weekend planned, but I will tell you about that in the near future on Style Bard.

To get the additional discount, just use code GAP20 when you're ready to check out. No further restrictions apply, but you may want to check out the site's mixed reviews prior to purchasing.

Seeking sexy shoes for Feb. 14? Get ready to check that off your list. Joining ShoeDazzle means that you can choose from a showroom of shoes that's selected each month just for you, based on your tastes. Then, any pair you pick is $39.95. My friend swears by it and I help her choose shoes from month to month; when you don't want anything from your showroom, you just let them know and your credit card isn't charged. Personally, I try to never look at my showroom, since the temptation is just too great! Seriously, the last thing I need is to buy another pair of shoes every month. But hey, you should definitely check it out if you're better at exercising moderation. Ew, now there's two words I just absolutely hate!
