We’ve let our wild side take over on TalkShoes recently, kickstarting our week on with this Diane von Furstenberg Leopard-Print Pump. All kinds of fun flats make up this week’s edition of 5 Under $500, and with comfortable footwear slowly rising to footwear domination, the traditional sneaker is getting a bit of a wild makeover. We hope cats printed on shoes aren’t the next big thing, but one designer is trying to make it happen! Also, Olivia Palermo debuted a pair of shoes from her Aquazzura collab at Fashion Week, and Heidi Klum stepped out in a pair of white Saint Laurent Pumps. Lastly, with Fashion Week coming to a close, we rounded up some of the best shoes that have strutted down the runway so far!
If you head on over to TalkShoes, it looks like Cara Delevingne may be setting the new staple shoe of the season. Also, you may not think of a pair of Mary Janes as your go-to shoe, but this season the Mary Jane pump is getting a very sexy makeover. We don’t know about you, but the month of September only means one thing to us: it’s time to start writing our fall wish list! Be sure to also check out our favorite #ShowMyShoes Instagrams this week, and of course, our weekly round of Shoe Deals!
Things are looking a little bit stormy in NYC this weekend, and if the outside conditions are similarly unideal where you are, we’ve got one suggestions: stay inside and shop online. Specifically, shop an extra 20% off a huge host of already-reduced bags, shoes and clothes at Bloomingdale’s. All you have to do is enter code SALEONSALE at checkout, but act quickly. This deal dries up tomorrow, September 7.
September isn’t exactly a notable sale season, but that doesn’t mean that intrepid shoppers won’t have their searches rewarded. Over at farfetch.com, one of our favorite international shopping sites, you’ll find over 500 designer bags still on sale, including pieces from in-demand brands like Saint Laurent, Givenchy and Fendi. Not too bad for the off season, particularly when you consider that most of these bags have been marked down multiple times–there are great deals to be had!
We may not be ready for summer to end at TalkShoes, but to help alleviate the pain, we found some great transitional cutout booties, all under $500! We brought you the exclusive first images of the amazing shoe collaboration between Olivia Palermo and Aquazzura! We also spotted Ashley Tisdale wearing the Gladiator Sandals, and we just love this look. Speaking of Stuart Weitzman, you can now customize various pumps in the color, material and heel height of your choice! Lastly, Ever wonder what it’s like to wear a pair of Christian Louboutin’s Daffodile pumps? Well, our editor gave it a shot and was pleasantly surprised by her walking experience.
Over on TalkShoes, we have a feeling your new favorite boot this fall is going to be a stud-covered moto boot! We may not know Kim Kardashian personally, but we think these Alaïa Embellished Suede Sandals may be one of her favorites. (She’s actually been seen wearing them more then once!) Since we’re talking about Kim Kardashian, we checked out the shoes she wore to the Teen Choice Awards, along with all the other attendees! We also received an exclusive invite to celebrate with London-based shoe designer Mary Alice Malone of Malone Souliers on the arrival of her shoes at Bergdorf Goodman, and we have some great photos from the event! Lastly, our day wouldn’t be complete without directing you to your weekly dose of Shoe Deals!
Accessory brand Dannijo is expanding into footwear, and over at TalkShoes, we are all excited to shop the collection come Spring 2015! We may not always be a fan of the color orange, but we might be having a change of heart with these orange shoes all under $500. As for our daily celebrity shoe spotting, we saw Nina Dobrev at the premiere of Let’s Be Cops wearing a pair of black Salvatore Ferragamo Ankle-Tie Lace Pumps. Also, the popularity of printed pumps is at an all-time high this season, so we rounded up some of the best polished prints for Fall 2014!
We love any sale, but farfetch.com’s sales are particularly great because they feature tons of designer pieces from boutiques all over the world, right at our fingertips. We particularly love the one that’s going on right now; not only are there tons of great markdowns, but from now through August 15, you can get an extra 20% off any sale purchase. All you have to do is enter coupon code x20aug14 at checkout!
We have lots of goodies over on TalkShoes this week! Just when we thought we couldn’t be more jealous of Chrissy Teigen, we took a sneak peak inside her shoe collection! One of our editors took a trip to Bermuda, and she gave us a peek at her favorite moments (and shoes) from her fabulous vacation. Also, New Yorkers love a good pair of flats and the TalkShoes team picked our favorites. The Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandals has been one of the most talked-about shoes of the season and we have an exclusive review, complete with photos!
We started our week off on a Gianvito Rossi foot over on TalkShoes, turning the luminosity up a notch with these silk pumps! It may be sweltering outside, but fashion is ready for fall, so we rounded up our top three fall trends and how we plan to wear them. Celebrities are really loving Birkenstock-inspired sandals this season, and another celeb that proves our theory is Alessandra Ambrosio. We’ve also turned the spotlight on you; we want to hear if you are ever afraid to wear your heels. Don’t forget to also check out the best loafers for under $500, and you won’t want to miss Miu Miu’s version of a rain boot while you’re at it.
