We have lots going on over on TalkShoes, so let’s get started! First we spotted the lovable Sarah Jessica Parker at the White House wearing a pair from her SJP line, naturally. We also looked at the rise of shearling shoes in our latest Trend Report, and you’ll see how Adidas shoes are getting a bit of a facelift, all thanks to your Instagram. Speaking of Instagram, be sure to flaunt your shoe collection with our hashtag #showmyshoes for a chance to be featured in our roundup! We also gathered the best Memorial Day weekend sales in this edition of Shoe Deals, and even though the holiday weekend is over, it doesn’t mean the sales have to end!
If you head on over TalkShoes, get ready to see Blake Lively as this week’s celebrity in our second edition of the new “The Many Shoes” series. Next, we want you cast your vote on which is your favorite kind of summer shoe, and we also want to know if you would pay $1,000 for a pair of sandals decorated with gummi bears. In What to Wear, we gathered which shoes you should wear this weekend to all of your Memorial Day festivities. We also checked out the details of the upcoming collaboration between Rita Ora and Adidas, and you can bet we’ll be marking our calendars for when this collection rolls out!
In case you haven’t had a chance to head over to TalkShoes lately, we’re here to fill you in on some shoe gossip. First, we got a glimpse of the much-anticipated Christian Louboutin Pigalle Follies Pump, which is basically a So Kate and a Pigalle pump morphed together! Also, we may have previously been on the fence about the Prada Spring 2014 runway sandals, but Sarah Silverman wore these Prada Asymmetric Embellished Suede Sandals so well that are beginning to have a change of heart! Next, see which shoe we chose as our Shoe of the Week; for our 5 Under $500 series, we rounded up shoes in all shades of blue.
Unless you’re in New York, you might not realize that we’re in the midst of sample sale season, but we are. For those of you outside the city and across the country, sample sales can be a little difficult to access, but with you in mind, some brands are stepping up to meet the broad demand for deep discounts. The Botkier Online Sample Sale has just launched, and in it you can find a bevy of beautiful spring bags for well over 50% off their regular prices, some for less than $100. Shop quickly, though – these kinds of prices don’t stick around for long.
When you think of stud detailing on handbags, one name always comes to mind: Valentino. No brand has perfected the stud trend as well as Valentino, and from a few large studs to smaller all-over studs, we love what the brand. Today MyHabit is having a Valentino Handbag sale, and we expect some bright colors and bags you don’t want to miss. Shop quickly for the best selection!

Being able to shop at dozens of the world’s finest boutiques, all at once, all without leaving your laptop is pretty fantastic.
