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.
