This week on TalkShoes, we put together The Ultimate Shoe Gift Guide, because every great handbag should be paired with a good shoe. Then we stumbled across a pair of shoes that also doubled as pants. Lastly, we rounded up some of the prettiest shoestagrams from our followers on Instagram.
Hold on to your hats, ladies – the Net-a-Porter Fall 2013 Sale just got better! Alexander McQueen, Proenza Schouler, Stella McCartney, Givenchy, Bottega Veneta, Roberto Cavalli and Thakoon have been added to the long list of markdowns as of this morning, and that includes some great new deals on the handbag page. Hurry, hurry – the best deals at the NAP sale always disappear quickly!
Most high-end luxury brands neglect their websites when it comes time for sale season, preferring instead to offer the best discounts and the widest array of marked-down product for in-store customers. Gucci is not one of those brands, thankfully, and the Gucci Fall 2013 sale is officially live for your viewing pleasure! The online sale includes reduced prices on over 1,300 items, including tons of great bags, so you’re going to want to check it out for yourself.
If you thought that all the best sales have passed us by, think again. This times, it’s the MATCHESFASHION Fall 2013 Sale who’s got us pulling out our credit cards with discounts up to 50% off clothes, shoes and handbags from the world’s best designers, particularly those who call the UK home. (Think Mulberry, Christopher Kane, Charlotte Olympia…) Also, even though MATCHESFASHION is a UK retailer, the site offers free shipping and free returns to the US with code USAFREE at checkout.
We’ve been busy shopping up a storm this week, but over on TalkShoes there has been plenty of shoe news taking place! Iggy Azalea showed Mother Nature nothing gets in the way of her and her Givenchy shoes, we honed in on one of our favorite boots of the season, the Acne Donna Boots, and Christian Louboutin proved his flats can be just as good as his heels.
Most major luxury retailers are holding their cards close to their vest for another day or two, but our friends at Barneys have decided to be among the first out of the gate with some big markdowns. Starting now through December 2, you can enjoy up to 40% off a huge selection of clothes, shoes, accessories and, of course, handbags. Shop quickly!
Our friends at Mackage have a fabulous handbag promotion to help kick off your Wednesday, and they’ve even extended it just for PurseBlog readers! You can get 25% off any Mackage Handbag, including Mackage x PurseBlog Nomad, when you shop their site today and use the code VIPBAG25 at checkout.
Over on TalkShoes this week, we rounded up 15 shoes that will be sure to get noticed at any holiday party (perfect to pair with your LBD). We’re currently obsessing over these seriously high Jimmy Choo Holographic Anouk Pumps, and we got in touch with our outdoorsy side with Saks’ Manolo Resort 2014 Collection.
Kate Spade has been absolutely killing it with deals, sales and coupon codes recently, and today, we’ve got another one for you. Now through November 25, enjoy 25% off full-price purchases with code 4NOVAFF25. Kate Spade offers a huge selection of totally giftable items from jewelry to stationary (not to mention bags, of course), so now’s the perfect chance to take advantage and get a little bit of your holiday shopping done early.
Today’s an exciting day! Not only is it Friday, but it’s also the start of the Bloomingdale’s Big Brown Bag Sale. Not only will you find markdowns up to 50% on thousands of great, in-season picks ranging from handbags to outwear and beyond, but Bloomingdale’s is also giving you an online-only deal of an extra $25 off almost every $200 you spend.
