I have a long list of shoes I dream of finding significantly discounted during an incredible sale. The list includes Frye’s Campus boots, Chanel’s quilted ballet flats, and almost anything by Loeffler Randall.
Recently, I’ve found myself at Jet Set Bohemian (8049 Soquel Drive, Aptos, CA, 831-685-3156) anytime I’m on the Central Coast. Aptos is conveniently located just south of Santa Cruz and north of Monterey on California Highway 1. A few months ago I saw a perfect pair of Campus boots there for $80; it was not meant to be since the size was a 9 and I wear a 7.5. Then on a recent trip, I spotted these beautiful, and apparently never worn, Loeffler Randall shoes. The price marked was $35 (what a deal!), but when I went to buy the shoes the price was reduced to $26 since the item had not sold in 30 days! How I love a good consignment store!
Here are my new favorite shoes!
And here’s the recent shoe selection at Jet Set Bohemian. Excluding boots, nothing was marked over $50, and all the shoes were in nice to new condition.
This is a rather embarrassing confession being that I write for a blog about shoes, but until today I had never shopped at 6pm.com. Then, while watching the Olympics and shopping for shoes (yay multitasking!), I came upon 6pm.com and the prices blew my mind! The sales are incredible, and the selection of sizes is impressive! After a few hours of shopping, I narrowed it down to my favorite shoes with amazing prices to match. And, of course, I had to share!
These heels by Faryl Robin fulfill all my 1940′s dreams!
I can always use another pair boots, especially Frye’s. The burgundy leather is so stylish!
Recently, I’ve been loving all of Michael Kors’ shoes. These red flats are so sassy!
This week I am traveling on business and wish I was packing these Cole Haan slingbacks!
And finally, the cutest pair of kitten heels courtesy of Delman.
Every year at Sundance I see celebrities in the cutest footwear and feel inspired to buy new shoes! I stay at a hotel on Main Street, and therefore walk by Mary Jane’s (613 Main Street, Park City, Utah 84060) every day! I can’t help but look in the windows and admire the shoes. Mary Jane’s a great selection of shoes and a lovely staff to match! This always leads to buying at least one pair of shoes before the film festival ends!I just found out that the store has a website! I have not ordered anything online (yet!), but it’s a nice alternative if you can’t make it to Park City.
Here are a few of my favorite shoes currently at Mary Jane’s:
Today marks the first day of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. This is my third year attending the festival, and I’m so excited!
I’m already in Utah and it’s very cold! Solid boots are a must! And yet, every year I see groups of girls walking through the snow in heels with bare legs. They might look good, but aren’t they cold?
In anticipation of traipsing through the snow, I did a roundup of my favorite boots!
This high black Cole Haan boot is a classic choice! The low heel makes it ideal for walking in the snow, and it’s dressy enough to wear to parties.
The affordable Tretorn Skerry Vinter boot is cute (especially and yellow)! I like how it’s a lined rain boot. Your feet would stay warm and dry.
And finally, the flashiest and warmest boot I could find: the Sorel Joan of Arctic boot. Yes, it’s a little over the top snow bunny, but just think of how warm your feet would be!
I recently found out that one of my sisters is reading our blog when she recently asked me via e-mail “How are those fuzzy boots working out?“. Now that she is following our site, she has also started campaigning to convert me over to Clarks, which is her absolute favorite shoe brand. Apparently, it took me moving to a different state to find out that she loves looking at and trying on cute, sexy, or funky shoes almost as much as I do.
In this recent message, subject line: ‘My New Shoes’, she shares with me her brief summer sandal search. The siren-call that she was hoping to answer was for one of these two pairs of Frye sandals.
Unfortunately, she laments that “she couldn’t walk in them”. And, since the primary purpose of shoes is to protect our feet in the everyday action of walking, this was an obvious deal-breaker.
So, where did she turn instead? Surprisingly, not to her fave brand Clarks, but to this shoe by Pikolinos:
This is a unique little slip-on shoe that manages to be comfy and funky while still retaining a solid feminine flare. I love the attention to detail on these; they are also a wonderful way to get a boho-styled shoe that won’t be on the feet of everybody else around.
Now, the ‘Romana’ is definitely more Sis’s style than mine. But, it is refreshingly different and eclectic. So, after receiving her e-mail, I just had to go peeking around online to see what other styles Pikolinos might offer.
Here are a few that caught my eye:
This one is a wonderfully quirky interpretation of the still-dominant gladiator sandal style.
And, if gladiators are not your thing, the Formentera is available in a simple slide variation as well:
Another Pikolinos shoe that I love is this charming Maryjane.
Now, I am undeniably a fan of Maryjane styles, so I was somewhat biased at the outset. But the leather on this is so yummy and I love the overall quilted effect of the stitching as well. This is one fantastic shoe with wonderfully whimsical artistic appeal.
On an unrelated note, I challenge you to say the title of this article three times fast.
