#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.

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: 30-50% Off Shoes, Sandals, Boots, & Handbags @ALDO!


I’ve been searching plenty of websites for the best outfits at the most affordable prices, but I haven’t forgotten about my love for footwear.  Once I checked out what was going on @ALDO shoes, I knew I had to share the latest markdowns for the Black Friday sale. There’s always a good reason to buy shoes on sale, including some sensible flats for the office, sexy pumps for a date night, & chic boots for a casual day of shopping with the girls.

The Patrin flats ($17.49) in cognac are the perfect way to finish off a belted sweater dress look with tights & they’re also sold in blue & fuchsia. Also, for a glitter glitz & glam, I love the Nottingham flats ($9.99) in blue, which will compliment any leather skirt & embellished blouse look.  For a more utilitarian look, I recommend the Mandina boot ($38.49) with skinny jeans & a plaid button-down. The sleek Sperow heels ($32.49) are ideal for sporting the cap toe trend with the contrasting texture, but they’ll also make any LBD look all the more fierce, especially when worn with textured tights.

Next is the Jonquiere heels ($32.49) with a classic platform for elongating the legline. Match these with a polka dot dress or a sleek red number & you’ll really be making an entrance.  The Korsen bootie ($39.99) plays with colorblocking, adding an unexpected twist with the regal cobalt & bright turquoise.  The feminine Laesser flats ($14.99) are a gorgeous pairing with a slipdress & boyfriend blazer for an effortless night out on the town.

Which shoes are your favorites? Would you buy your BFF a pair of shoes for the holidays? Happy Styling!

Inside A Style Blogger’s Closet: My Striped $8.00 Dress From JC Penney!


Even when I’m not shopping for an amazing deal, one sneaks up on me. I made a recent trip to my local JC Penney b/c I was the happy recipient of a $10 reward (for being a cardmember & having used said card on more than one recent occasion), so I decided I was going to treat myself to a new silver chain for my latest variety of charms & pendants that I picked up from a craft store.  However, gravity pulled me toward the clearance dress section, which is where I found the Worthington mixed media dress ($8.00 in stores, $14.00 online). Before I get into talking about what I love about this dress, I gotta emphasize that if you have the opportunity to check a store & its website online, please do so b/c you never know where you’ll be getting the better deal.

Anyway, when I tried the dress on, the $8.00 price tag didn’t seem so great since the dress was very short- too short for comfort, but then when I cinched in its sort of boxy shape with a belt & considered leggings & some boots, I knew I was in business.  Unfortunately I wasn’t able to snap myself a shot in this outfit (& I’ve worn it twice!), but I can say that I love the tunic look to it, as well as the uber-flattering lines that help emphasize my shape.

I did manage to get the chain I was looking for, as well as this dress & a few additional must-have clearance finds for under $10, but I’m a guilt-free shopper knowing that I’ve added to my fall-winter wardrobe & can’t wait to see what else I can find when I least expect it! Happy Styling!

Show Me The Shoes: Cosmopolitan’s Line Of Pumps, Flats, & Boots For JC Penney!


So it’s time to talk shoes & I’ve been hitting up some of my local favorite stores for all the best deals to try & get the best ideas on how to update my fall wardrobe.  I’ve been to JC Penney twice in the last week & kept to the clearance racks, but while I was checking out the website, I found that one of my favorite magazines has joined the designing ranks.

Cosmopolitan, yes that magazine, has created a very sexy, sophisticated, & modern collection of intimates & accessories sold exclusively @JCP.  This also includes the above shoes (yay!) ranging in affordable prices- not to mention that when the big fall sales start that these prices will just get better! Check out the Jackie pumps ($37.00), Burma pumps ($40.00), Ingrid pumps ($37.00), Mary flats ($30.00), Zima flats ($30.00), Olive boots ($55.00). Personally, I’m crazy for the sequin flats, but also can’t get enough of the neutral & gold-tone on the Burma pumps, which are prefect for mixing the nude shoes trend with metallic details.

Black Friday Sale Update: 50% Off Selected Styles & Get $10 Off $50 @Payless!


It’s Black Friday, so you know I have to post about the mega sale right now @Payless!  There’s a lot, so you might wanna jot this down!

There’s a special coupon code (62507) to get $10 off your $50 purchase through 11/27, but also there’s 50% off selected styles of boots, all slippers, cold weather accessories & more!  Not to mention that if you scour the internet like me, you can find a 20% off coupon code (58558) which is good until 12/5! Do the math yourself to figure out which is the best code for your purchase.

I used the latter since I am in super crazy budget mode while preparing for my return to Italy in January, but I did manage to scoop up the Riley tall slouch boot ($19.99) in black since I’m preparing to wear a lot of leggings & long sweaters on my trip.  Using the 20% off code for my online order & opting to have them shipped to a local Payless store, I paid under $17!

In addition, I’ve had my eye on the houndstooth scarf ($6.49) in raisin, which has been marked down from $12.99.  Lastly, I love walking around the house in what I call “sloots,” my slipper boots.  A few years ago I bought gray cableknit ones, but now the store has the fair isle bootie slipper ($11.49) on sale, also available in black!

Quickie Darling Deal & Steal: Sophie Theallet Designs for Nine West!
