Me And My Shoes

While purses are my first love, I also have a thing for shoes. Especially during sale season. This is my chance to stock up on incredible shoes once offered at unjustifiable prices. Take these Lanvins for example:




I first saw these at Barneys way back when and I remembering gazing longingly at them on the display stand. At close to $1000, there was no way I was going to buy them but as luck would have it...I found them on sale at some random store in Vegas (Shoe In at the Wynn) this past weekend. They were on sale for 40% off and well, you know me...can't pass up a bargain!! I actually did my happy dance in the store...yep, thats how excited I was :) I think the thing about finding great shoes on sale is to always keep your eyes and options open. When each season begins, mentally take note of the pieces that you love but can't bring yourself to buy because of the steep asking price. Patiently wait until the sales begin (May and then again in November) and start looking for the pieces that you had once lusted over. More than likely, you'll end up finding those shoes on sale (usually 30-40% during first cut). Nowadays, I only buy shoes for full price if I know they're going to sell out before the sales or if they're a style that I know wont go on sale. This plan of action has worked wonders for me and it'll probably do your shoe collection some good :) And as always, my cats had a blast playing with the new shoe box...

Thanks Lauren! I haven't worn the shoes yet but I did see them for full price at BNY so I'm totally glad I went ahead and bought them in Vegas.

Amazing heels! and even more attractive with the 40percent off! They look extremely high so i doubt id be able to walk in them even with the 40percent discount, seriously amazing!

Hi Madame Dior! I haven't worn these out yet but when I was walking around the store and my hotel room with them on, they didn't seem to be all that bad. BTW...big fan of your blog :)
