New kicks: Sam Edelman Quinn Wedges and House of Harlow Talia Boots

WHAT is going on with the sales lately…  Target is clearing out their patio stuff already, H&M is having a big sale, Forever 21 is having a BOGO sale, Zara is having a sale… it’s really hard not to shop right now.  T__T Eeep!

I got two really good shoe finds this week at Nordstrom Rack and Neiman Marcus Last Call.  Unfortunately, neither shoe is on sale online anymore. :(  Try your luck on Ebay or go to the stores and look around.

Sam Edelman – Quinn

Originally $150 retail, bought for $60 at Nordstrom Rack.  They have slight wrinkling on the satin wedge but it is hardly noticeable and doesn’t bother me in the slightest.  That’s probably why it’s on further clearance!

I have been eyeing the Sam Edelman Quinn since I saw Wendy from Wendy’s Lookbook wearing them.  They are near dupes for the Giuseppe Zanotti I06078 wedges (see an example here).  I really wanted to find a pair at the time, but I’m glad that I waited so I could scoop these up.  The platform is SO high that the pitch is incredibly low and comfortable to walk in.  This is one of the most comfortable ‘dressy’ shoes I own by far.  I’m really happy that I found them in a subdued leopard print instead of plain black… I feel they are more dimensional and interesting that way.  (Look at me.. all justifying my purchase to make myself feel better about buying shoes.. *SMH*)

House of Harlow – Talia Boots

Original retail $295, bought for $40

Short legs be damned, I still love over-the-knee boots!  I walked into Neiman Marcus Last Call just to take a look around… I never buy anything there normally.  I just go for the eyecandy ;)  But I saw these boots… they were rolled up around the soles and as I unrolled the boot shafts my eyes went wide.  O___O  House of Harlow boots for additional 50% off the tag price!  And the shoe sign said it was another 30% off on top of that.  *omgomg*

Actually when I rang them up, it was 40% off instead of the 30% I anticipated.  OOOooH.  So I paid only $42.87~!  They are incredibly comfortable.  I know its hard to think of wearing boots now that we’re in the thick of summer but I’m SO excited to wear these in the fall/winter. Well.. once I figure out the best way to tie them up on my legs, haha.
