Hot Pink Shoe Deals!

We hope everyone had a shoetabulous weekend, filled with hearts, flowers, love and…if you were really lucky, like us, maybe a new pair of shoes!

Hot Pink Shoe Deals || The Shoe DishI don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, at least not in the traditional sense of the holiday. I love red and pink and candy and flowers. I decorate my house and send flowers to my mom. This year, I even bought heart-shaped donuts from Dunkin Donuts. Yum! But, as far as gifts for {and from} the boyfriend {whom I cherish}, well that consisted of an early-morning smooch as I ran out the door.

Of course, my sneaky boyfriend did cheat the rules a bit this year with this surprise that came late on Wednesday night {2 days before the holiday of love}. You’ll notice that there are more boxes of candy than flower bouquets {he knows me well}.

Instead of roses, this year, I treated myself to a new pair of shoes! And they are quite fitting of the holiday in bright lipstick pink. Say hello to my new Kate Spade New York ‘Shelly’ Pumps, which will be fondly referred to as my Barbie shoes from here on out. These bad boys were on sale at Saks Off Fifth Avenue. Originally $328, marked down to $206.99 with an additional 65% off this weekend. Yup, I paid just $72 for these classic designer pumps. Ay-o! Click HERE to get them at 6pm.com right now for just #164!! right now for just $164!

Actually, it was quite the shoetabulous weekend indeed. My BFF was visiting from NM for the weekend and she purchased 2 pairs of boots in just 4 days. Woot! This classic, mid-shaft moto-inspired boot from Aldo came in at a wallet-friendly $39 and a surprise 1-day boot sale at Steve Madden saw the Steve Madden ‘Brewzzer’ boot all wrapped up for a sweet little $64! Black and brown boots all in one weekend! Can’t beat that!

No More Blues in these Shoes…

After last week’s, somewhat aggressively, named #snowmageddon I was looking forward to the promising temperatures of 70+…until I realized those spring-like temperatures were going to come with equally high humidity. Ugh, can one never be happy!

I’m not ready to go into detail, but this is what I was wearing on my feet on Sunday. For those of you who follow football, it was a very, very, very bad day.

So this week, I licked my wounds from the weekend and passed the dreary, overcast, humid days with bright-colored pumps. Hey, when the weather gives you fog, wear bright colors so people can find you!! Monday saw my favorite Audrey-Hepburn chunky-heeled pumps from BC Shoes. My how I love these little pumps. Check out more low-heel pumps HERE!

No More Blues in these Shoes! || The Shoe Dish

No week is complete without my morning trips to the gym. I am not a fan of sneakers. They are a necessity, only to be worn at the gym or while running on the street. I picked these ones up in the little boys section on sale at an outlet store. Nothing beats a $30 pair of athletic shoes!

The bump is busting out these days, so it’s getting harder and harder to dress in the mornings. Today I managed to squirm into my favorite Madewell dress, pairing it with my fave Madewell work bag and my Report booties. It was a black & white kind of day.

No More Blues in these Shoes! || The Shoe Dish

These are one of my oldest pairs of shoes. They’re the only pair of chunky platforms I still own and wear and I love them because they look like they’ve been bronzed {the way you’d bronze a pair of baby shoes in commemoration}. They look cute with EVERYTHING and are a great alternative to black…

TGIF my shoe fancies! Have a great and shoetabulous weekend…

Lucky Brand ‘Eloy’ Boots

Lucky Brand Eloy || The Shoe DishOh, well hello there final sale boots from Lucky Brandin just my size. Being a 7 1/2 it’s rare to find a great pair of shoes during final clearance sales. It’s a very common size, after all. So, you can imagine my surprise and delight when I stumbled across these final sale boots from Lucky in a 7 1/2 {the only size left!!} What! What!!

These uber cute little booties are the perfect boot for the everyday. They can be paired with jeans for a casual day at the office {depending on where you work :)} and look yummy with a cute floral sundress too. The best part is they’re a great boot for in-between seasons. Wear them with mini skirts, jeans, sundresses, pants…heck, you can even wear them with shorts if you dare. Available at Piperlime for $39.97…but hurry, 7 1/2 is the ONLY size left!

Trend Watch: The Audrey Hepburn Pump

The anti-stiletto inspired by the anti-privileged, Audrey Hepburn made whites socks and loafers famous in the late 1950s. These chunky, closed-toe pumps follow the same rules. A pump that’s not quite a pump, but not quite a flat either.

As an avid sky-high stiletto wearer, we’re always entranced by a “casual” shoe that catches our attention and our hearts have been won over by this beatnik-influenced style. A shoe that straddles alternative culture and sits happily in the mainstream, as well? Do show us more! Plus, they’re way more comfy 6-inch stilettos :) Here are a few of our favorites:

Trend Watch: Return of the Peek-a-Boo Bootie

Every couple of seasons a micro-trend is recycled. That’s why we’re constantly seeing the resurgence of things gone by. So, when you look at photos five years from now and think — “Lordy, what was I wearing? What did I do to my hair? What is that lipstick?” — chances are, you’ll make the same mistakes in another five years. We do not learn our lessons when it comes to trends.
