I love St Patrick’s Day because nobody wears green, except on March 17, and it is such a wonderful color. Everyone assumes I have an Irish ancestor, because of the red hair thing, but the red hair comes from a Scottsman. Anyways, I have been planning my Irish meal for a week, and have been planning my green outfit for a couple of days. It’s true, I have no life. I have no green shoes, either.
I would LOVE the Gaultier shoes from his Fall Couture line, but that isn’t going to happen.
So I decided to see what endless had for a substitute.
Moda also had a green platform pump that was made of the same green leather. They are really cute.
Isn’t the little heart on the heel adorable?
Fluevog always offers a funky taste to his high quality shoes. I love them.
For those who just can’t bring themselves to wear a REALLY green shoe, here is an olive green boot that is nice.
The following is what I ordered. I hope they fit properly because I really need a green shoe for next year.
So if you are going out, have a pint of green beer. I am staying home and will be serving a Guinness Beef Stew and Irish Soda Bread. (We had corned and cabbage last year.) Dinner is at 6:30, so come by.

I don’t usually like the phrase “Go, Shop, Save” since it normally involves a lot more spending to ‘get’ the supposed ‘saving’ of money. But, at 80% off of some items this is a great time to look and see if any of the items that were unreachable at $100, $300, $400 are now within reasonable prices for those of us on serious budgets.
My recurring crush, the Harajuku Lovers ‘Paley’ is 20 bucks – yes, $20. Can we say, ‘Insane and tempting clearance prices!’ Holy cow, Christmas may be affordable after all.
This LAMB ‘Hip’ oxford also caught my eye at $120 down from $400. I love sexy oxfords for fall and winter outfits. There are also about 2 dozen other LAMB styles (Primarily hot, strappy sandals) on clearance as well.
And, let’s not forget Giuseppi Zanotti. This Giuseppi Zanotti E90172 is a great strappy platform that needs an appreciative home. This baby is $175 – down from $875 original retail. Check out the 6pm.com sale for even more styles.
So, what are you waiting for? These 6pm clearance specials tend to sell out quickly!
Who needs Black Friday when websites like Smartbargains regularly give us doorbuster prices? They’re even running a “Get an extra 10% off” promotion through the end of the month.
I know some people love the whole black Friday crowds, competition, and such. But, if you would rather hang at home & enjoy your turkey leftovers, there are so many shoes & boots on uber-discount right now, you really can shop from the comfort of your couch.
Anyway, here’s a quick peek at shoes that catch my eye on this lovely, soon to be food-filled Thanksgiving.
First, some playful, end-of-season, sandals and slingbacks to hold onto for next spring:
Next, a few choices for holiday bling:
And finally, boots to satisfy your craving for fall & winter styles:
(This is my new steampunk/weird west lust-boot)
So, happy window shopping, and most of all:
Happy Thanksgiving Everybody!
Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but shoes are this girl’s real love. And, while I love ribbons, lace, and flowers on my shoes, today I am crushing on a pair of tuxedo pumps from Harajuku lovers.
Do these have spunk and attitude?
Are they fun and flirty?
Do these beg to be center stage of your outfit?
Do I know exactly which little black dress I would pair with these?
Now, if only I had a convenient occasion to wear that little black dress…..
I just ran into some of the newer styles of Harajuku Lovers shoes. Up until recently, the Harajuku Lovers shoe line has been filled with casual sneakers and slip-on flats. Not so this season.
Harajuku Lovers has apparently taken a page from Betsey Johnson and Beverly Feldman and gone from cute and casual to feminine and fabulous.
Perhaps, with LAMB shoes following the trend of increased prices that we have seen in more established luxury brands (Last spring, LAMB shoes were around $400, this spring some styles were near the $700 mark), Gwen’s Harajuku Lovers brand is expanding to include club-worthy shoe styles at college-friendly prices? After all, it makes sense to establish a recession-resistant middle ground when the pricing on your flagship brand starts outrunning the budgets of your primary customer base.
Here are several favorites from Harajuku Lover’s new look:
Too bad I can’t successfully wear yellow.
This is a wonderfully vibrant spring style. And those heart details at the vamp and buckle are all girl!
With top canvas and rope details, these just might have fellow blogger trainingheels cringing in horror. But, I’m pretty sure these are perfect for gals that love a casual sandal that can successfully dress up a pair of jeans as wekk as a fun and flirty summer sun-dress.
These red-hot penny-loafers are my absolute favorite - conservative, but not at all stodgy or demure. I love a classic style with a sexy twist.
And look at this, much like Betsey Johnson, the soles are also part of the whole playful package:
Super Cute! How’s that for ‘secret soles‘.
There are several more Harajuku Lovers styles available that I haven’t shown here. And, while I might miss the cute canvas casuals that were available last year, I love that some of the LAMB attitude is now available at Harajuku prices.
Because, however much I love shoes, I love not going into debt for them even more. With prices ranging from $70-$100, these fun heels are accessible on most shoe-maven’s budgets. Plus, imagine the prices if you run across them on sale. Now that’s something to get excited over.
