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.
