We at Shoeblog have recently discovered that funnest of finds, a new designer e-tailer.
This time it’s Joseph, a family owned and operated company that began selling shoes in leased space in other department stores in the first half of the 20th century and has since expanded into their own locations. If you’re lucky enough to be in the Houston or Memphis areas, you can head there in person to check out the deluxe designer goodies. But if you’re not, then you can now have access to the handbags, jewelry, and yes–shoes online.
And what better day to let you know about this new online sweet spot than today, when their Spring Sale begins, with discounts on high end shoes of up to 40% (and even beyond if you hunt)!
What do they have that you can snatch up for a (relative) song?
How about this sexy, sophisticated Prada Argento evening sandal? Originally $595, but now you can scoop it up for under $360.
If you’re a lucky lucky size 7 and you act fast, you might net these GORGEOUS Gucci pumps. Classy and elegant, they’ve still got a funky edge to them with that signature Gucci bamboo heel. And your heart will surely skip a beat at the price, because instead of the original $470, they’re now only $157!
In a more comfort oriented frame of mind? Then how about these ruby red Diane von Furstenberg flats? Shiny and tempting as any apple, these puppies can now be yours for $158 (down from $225). (Stay tuned for more on these, from my glamalicious Diane von Furstenberg photoshoot.)
You’ll be so on trend (and comfy, too) if you step out in these Tod’s Oxford-inspired slip ons. They’ve got a rubber sole, excellent style, and they’re now only $220 instead of $365.
Or take the Taryn Rose Kaelyn out for a $316 whirl instead of a $450 schlep. I’ll be putting up a shoe review of these, by the way, just as soon as the weather lets me break them out.
So get those mouse fingers limbered up and put those keyboards to the test for some really great swag at rare discounted prices. Ready. Set. Shop.
I love Diane von Furstenberg breezy wrap dresses–flattering and bright, the very definition of feminine. So I really really wanted to love her shoes–I really tried–but instead I ended up, oh, I don’t know–a little underwhelmed? Some of the choices were really meh, like this “Comfy Chic” slide:
A simply metallic band attached to a chunky cork wedge–yawn!
I tried to get up my enthusiasm with these:
There’s nothing wrong with these Dolce thong sandals per se, but the $240 price tag puts a cramp in my style. I guess they’re pretty, but again, I guess I expect even more pizzazz from Mrs. Diane.
And speaking of thongs, she seems overly enamored with them. Now, I’ve never been a fan of high-heeled thong sandals. I’ve only recently (and barely) gotten used to wearing thong sandals at all; but having that bit of leather rubbing between your toes with the added pressure of the high heel? Why, that must be torture! So this is why I don’t understand why this is needed for a sandal that would otherwise work fine without the thong–the CEO stacked heel sandal:
It’s a pretty sandal (even prettier in red), but–why the extra thong? There it is again:
I actually love the simplicity and lines of these Milano cutout mini-wedges, but…don’t love the thong–simply because it’s not necessary.
Overall, while I’m not necessarily impressed with the collection, there are several attractive options that might float some other people’s boat. Me…I’m going to stick with her dresses for now, thank you very much!
