Net-A-Porter sale has launched!!

Shoe-miracle-net-a-porter-saleI was all set to head to the grocery store first thing this morning and pick up the remainder of my Thanksgiving ingredients.  I was showered and dressed by 7:20 this morning.  I figured I had time to have a cup a tea and check my email before heading out and there it was…an email from Net.  Their US sale has officially launched this morning. (Ignore that pesky little message that the sale is closed.  It is definitely open.

Guess who is now sitting in front of her laptop perusing her wishlist to see what items have gone on sale while fighting the voices in my head telling me to buy the shoes!!!   That’s right me.  Anyways, happy shopping!  I will get to the grocery store sometime today…I hope.

It’s Sale Time!

As everyone else prepares for the upcoming holidays I am preparing for the sales.  You see the sales for me are just as synonymous of the holidays as turkey is to Thanksgiving or a tree is to Christmas.  This is the time of year when just about everything goes on sale and I make it a point to snag the shoes or boots that I have been coveting all season. But so does every other woman.  So I have developed a strategy for making sure that I get my shoes.  Here are a few tips that help me navigate the sales both in store and online and hopefully will be useful to you as well.

Presale – This is probably the most civilized way to shop the sales. If you have a relationship with a salesperson at any department or shoe store ask them when the store begins pre-selling items that will be on sale.  Frankly, you should ask even if you don’t have a relationship.  Then select what you like and the salesperson will ring them when the sale starts.  No fighting, no fuss.  Presales have already started in most stores already.

Wishlist Wednesday – Jimmy Choo Lorelai Pump

shoe-miracle-jimmy-choo-lorelai

I really haven’t been so in love with Jimmy Choo shoes these days.  But, I think that is about to change.  There are some great shoes from the Fall/Winter and Resort collections that have caught my eye.  So maybe just maybe there is a chance to save our relationship after all. I think you will agree after seeing the Lorelai pump.  It is covered in flowers and has just the right amount of sophistication and whimsy.  These are the perfect pumps to get you through the holiday party season.

Repeat after me….I deserve new shoes

Sergio Rossi sample sale kicks off today!

shoe-miracle-sergio-rossi-sample-sale-november-2015So we are entering what I like to call the most wonderful time of the year.  Yes I love the holidays but this is also the time when all of the sales kick off.  Retailers are nervous about this holiday shopping season and rightfully so with increasing signs of the market slowing down.  This is good news for shoppers as I expect that sales are going to be really, really good this season.  But first, there are a few more sample sales this week.  First up, Sergio Rossi starts today with prices up to 80% off.  Check back for updates throughout the week for additional sale information.

 

Finally, you can shop Dior shoes online

That’s right you can finally shop Dior shoes online, albeit temporarily.  Today Dior launches an online pop-up shop at BG.com selling shoes from its Resort 2016 collection.  You will be able to shop the collection beginning today until December 31st. This is a very big deal because Dior is one of the few remaining brands unwilling to make their clothing and accessories available online.  It will be interesting to see if this pop-up shop serves as a test case for offering more of its collection online similar to Chanel’s pop-up shop with Net-a-Porter earlier this year.   Read more from WWD here.

Another week, another sample sale!

Well the holy grail of sample sales has arrived this week.  That’s right, it is time for the Christian Louboutin sample sale.  As always, the sale is by invitation only but there is a possibility that it will open to the public later in the week.  Security is tight and it is highly unlikely that you will get in without an invitation.  If you do dare to try and go without a personal invite, the details are below.  In the meantime, check back for updates and additional information on when the sale opens to the public.
