Now is the time to shop the Manolo Blahnik sale

shoe-miracle-manolo-blahnik-imageThe Manolo Blahnik semi-annual sale started a few weeks ago but prices were a mere 33% off.  The boutique just slashed prices to 50% off this week. So, today would be a good day to take a long lunch especially if you have had your eye on a pair of shoes or boots and don’t want to wait until February rolls around to snap them up. Details are below. As always, I will send an up when the final markdown occurs.  Until then…happy shopping!

Is this your new basic pump?

shoe-miracle-dior-dioressence

It’s no secret that I love special and unique shoes particularly if they are done in an exotic skin. Exotics are my cryptonite. But every woman needs a basic pump in her life and I am no different. Over the years my ideal basic pump has evolved and shifted. For a long time it was the Jimmy Choo Abel. Then it was Louboutin’s Decollete. Now it is Gianvito Rossi’s Pitone pump.

The release of Dior’s Dioressence pump last week got me thinking that I may be adding another to my roster.  I am still in love with my Gianvito Rossi Pitones. But, it is nice to have some variety and the Dioressence with its sexy curved heel just might be what I am looking for.  It doesn’t hurt that comes in some of my favorite colors of the rainbow.

What are your shoe resolutions for 2016?

shoe-miracle-shoe-resolutionsSo I am just finalizing my shoe resolutions or my intentions which seems to be the latest buzzword. Even though it is still early January, it feels like I am running late for some reason.  I totally planned to send these out last week but I was kind of sick. Not sure if my sickness was an extreme holiday hangover or a bonafide illness. But I am back on my feet so here goes.

This year’s resolutions kind of flow from what I learned trying to stick with last year’s resolutions. I think I was fairly successful. I finally got a pair of Valentino rockstuds which I love and are as comfortable as everyone says they would be. I even Kondo’d my closet (which I am now affectionately calling the “Great Purge”).  I even donated and sold a number of shoes. Continue reading

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.
