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.

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.

Wishlist Wednesday – Christian Louboutin Gaetanina Booties

So I was walking through Bergdorf’s last week minding my own business not even intending to look at shoes.  I was going to meet someone in Dior (another problem in and of itself).  But as I was turning the corner and I saw these boots.  I had to do a double take.  At this point, there are not many Louboutin booties that surprise me or even entice me.  There are the basics which we all know and love but who knew this simple mixture of leather and suede would make my heart skip a beat.  There really is nothing left to say at this point but want, need and love!

Awhile back Christian Louboutin announced that they were expanding the range of nude shoes offered.  This makes total sense given that the women who wear their shoes are an array of colors.  Well the expanded collection has finally arrived at Bergdorf Goodman this week. The nudes collection is available in the So Kate, the Ibiza Half d’Orsay and the Pigalle Follies.  I for one can’t wait to check them out in person.

Wishlist Wednesday – Manolo Blahnik Kahika Bootie

I have never been a fan of open-toe or cut-out booties.  Mostly because, I just didn’t get the notion of booties that are not really booties.  After seeing these floral cut-out booties by Manolo Blahnik, I get it now.  The only thing really left to say is please and thank you.
