#BlackFriday Sale Update: Up To 50% Off @ALDO Shoes!


‘Tis boot season, which means that at least a few days a week, your wardrobe should consist of a tunic sweater & leggings, a turtleneck & skinny jeans, & a cardigan & boyfriend jeans. I’m pretty psyched to get the most use out of my favorite fall / winter shoes to reinvent staple pieces in a new way. Footwear is the easiest way to spruce up any look, especially when you can consider adding extra texture & detail in suede, laces, & metallic accents. ALDO Shoes is currently celebrating Black Friday with up to 50% off select styles, with FREE SHIPPING on purchases until 11/29!

SHOP: gray boots, brown boots, black ankle booties, tan suede booties, red lace-up booties, peep toe toe booties, bordeaux bag, & cognac bag @ALDO Shoes.

Happy Styling!

Rachel Zoe for Shoe Dazzle

I’ve said it before & I’ll say it again… I love any & everything that Rachel Zoe does! The amazing celebrity stylist & designer has joined forces with ShoeDazzle as their newest chief stylist, offering advice to shoppers who are looking for affordable glamour. While I know I can’t make the financial investment in a pair of Rachel Zoe Collection shoes, I can absolutely support this collaboration since it’s all in the name of shoes!

Check out the website for Rachel’s picks, some of which I’ve included above. The Madelaine pumps ($39.95) are floral wonders, perfect for mixing your winter separates as the season changes. Next, to go along with the cap toe trend, the Dana pumps ($43.95) are perfect for coordinating your neutrals with other pops of color. For those of you looking for comfort, the Maude wedges ($39.95) are sophisticated & luxe with a velvety texture & contrasting wooden heel.  Lastly, the Alejandra booties ($44.95) are modern, feminine, & chic if worn with edgy pieces like leather leggings, a motorcycle jacket, or cut-out LBD.

Black Friday Sale Update: Nine West’s 50% Off Select Boots & Booties, & Select Pumps $49.99!


Have you got the holiday blues? Has the holiday spirit just not hit you yet? Well, I have a solution, by sharing the latest Black Friday sale from Nine West. Select boots & booties are currently 50% off, & select pumps are reduced to $49.99! I love a Nine West shoe… there’s something about the combination of quality, affordability, & style that makes me swoon b/c this is one of my favorite name brands to follow in footwear.

If that doesn’t excite you, then head to a doctor (a cute one)! Anyway, I want to share all of the styles, but simply don’t have the time to talk about each & every one, so I picked my four favorite styles to share for a variety of occasions during the season.

Play with the neutral shoe trend with the Sheryl pumps ($49.99) a nude / black patent combo. These are fun to mix with cocktail dresses, & can work well with suit separates for the office.  They’re available in four other colors to help round out your wardrobe.  Get your glam on & all of your Wizard of Oz dreams to come true with the Love Fury pumps ($49.99) in red, which also come in dark silver & black- ideal for making your Christmas wish more festive.

I’m a big fan of flat boots for those days when you wanna give your arches a break, but you still want to look fashion forward, which makes the Bogie bootes ($59.50) in bronze metallic perfect for wearing under jeans with a cable knit sweater or layering with a button down.  For something a little more edgy, these are also sold in silver metallic, calling on your 80s-inspired duds! Because anything animal print sends me into a fashion fury, I had to include the Haywire booties ($69.50) which will hug your foot in all the right ways & call on lots of attention when you walk into a room!

Black Friday Sale Update: 50 – 60% Off Sale @Nine West!


I’ve bene waiting on the Nine West sale for Black Friday all week & here it is! There’s a limited selection on styles that are 60% off.  Also, on the website & in stores, there are some major 50% off sales too!

Part of the 60% off deal are some really fabulous booties that range in style from utilitarian to boho chic.  I’ve posted a bunch of animal-inspired items so far today & I couldn’t resist sharing the Fessup booties ($83.30) which are perfect for any red top & black skinny pants outfit.  The Esmiralda booties ($90.30) have a snake trim, which just add some luxury to the shoes which have been reduced in price from $129.00.  Also, Gracious bootie ($76.30) is an essential piece for this season with wide leg trousers, knit leggings, dark denim jeggings, & boyfriend jeans.

Be sure to check ou the Woodney pumps ($49.50) in nude patent, but they are also available in black patent.  The heel is classic & offers much more support as opposed to a skinny stiletto.  In addition, the Hideout sandals ($49.50) in red synthetic also come in nautral & gray.  They’d really make a splash with a leather mini dress, romper & tights outfit, or studded sheath dress with a belt.

Don’t forget that there’s a limited time offer on free shipping for any purchase, so if you decide not to keep your purchase, you can return them to your local Nine West store without having to spend any additional cash!  Happy Styling!

11/10/11 Darling of the Day: My Girl Crush on Pippa Middleton (In Zara) Continues!


I’ll admit my girl crush on Pippa Middleton.  It’s right up there with Scarlett Johansson, Kristin Davis, & Gwyneth Paltrow.  If you didn’t notice already, this weekend was big for Style Darling in that I posted my first-ever single Style Darling gallery, featuring the famous British sister.  Here she wears this dress with seams ($79.99) from Zara, which is available for purchase by buyers in the United States!

I had high hopes of turning this into a post for The $100 Challenge, but seeing as how the dress is costly, that wasn’t going to work.  However, since we’re darlings on a budget, it is okay to splurge every now & again on a special piece.

There are just a few chic pieces to complete the look, ones that you may already have if you’ve followed any of my posts so far this fall!  For example the single-button metro stretch jacket ($48.96) from New York & Company is an essential piece for any occasion.

It was easy to find the next five items which really bring out Pippa’s figure & the edginess in the dress.  @Forever 21, the studded suedette ankle boots ($32.80) are just the wow factor needed to punch it up.  Also, the buckled leatherette handbag in brown ($34.80) is functional b/c of its adjustability.  There’s one sale that you can’t miss & that’s on the sunglasses like these ($3.99), which are marked down from $5.00.

For a staple piece of jewelry, take a look @Kohl’s to see the gold mesh tone ring ($11.70) by Jennifer Lopez, which is also available in silver tone.

Would you spend $80 on a dress like this?  Do you admire Pippa’s modern & minimalist style?  For more on Pippa, be sure to check out the gallery, as well as where to find look-alike flats, inspired by Pippa & how to replicate her casual chic style.  Happy Styling!
