It’s no secret that I have a love affair with the Loeffler Randall shoes, and it’s also no secret that I love a good deal. Which is why my eyes sparkled and my fingers itched to do a little online shopping when I caught whiff of Barefoot Tess‘s generous sale on that very brand! Just enter LRN30 at checkout for 30% off ALL Loeffler Randall shoes. Spectacular! Especially considering that this includes the “Dorrit” sandal, featured in just about any fashion magazine summer issue:
Pretty in metallic, adorning your foot with a tinsel necklace made of shiny leather ruffles, this sandal is one of my favorites for the season.
But wait! There’s more! While you’re there, check out their famous Trunk Sale, and take an extra 35% off already marked-down prices when you enter code 35OFF at checkout.
Have a beautiful, sunny weekend, everyone–and don’t forget to celebrate the warmth of the season in stylish sandals!
You’ve got today and tomorrow, and then the lucky winner will be announced on December 23.
Not like you need further temptation here, but just in case, take a look at what $100 could help bring home to your closet.
These sassy Chie Mihara Lumi t-strap flats are on offer
as are these Corso Como Candy asymmetrical maryjanes.
There’s this delicate Estella peep toe from Loeffler Randall
and (to keep this from being an all-black shoe post) this super cute Delman Mona ballet flat, which comes in, yes, black, but also in silver, gold, and this pretty pinkish copper color.
So comment away while you still can, and maybe one of these pretty pairs will be coming home with you. Self-gifting is a great tradition of the holiday season, after all.
The price was right. Delivery was free. The brand was one I had coveted for quite a while. The color was currently missing from my shoe wardrobe. The styling was versatile. The only pair left was in my size. Christmas was (is) around the corner.
How could I resist these Loeffler Randall taupe peep-toe twisted flats?
Of course I couldn’t. And let me tell you, I’m glad I got them.
You know how you wonder if these high-end brands really deserve their price tag? (I know I do.) Are those Louboutins really worth $950? Or those Chloe boots–really worth shelling $1200 for? I totally expect to pay over $100 for a decent pair of shoes, but I do balk at prices over $200–they require a lot of financial planning and rationalizations. Are they really worth it? Am I going to wear them enough? Do I have outfits to wear them with? At the very least, am I going to get envious glares every time I do wear them? Are they comfortable? Are they well made enough for me to get my money’s worth??
These are not empty questions. One of my fabulous friends who fully understands the importance of splurging on shoes recently showed me a pair of Prada patent platforms she had gotten last year. The platform was made of wood, clog-style, and it had cracked down the middle, in the arch area. The studs holding the patent upper to the platform were in bad shape–getting loose. The shoe, which she hadn’t worn excessively at all, was sorely in need of capital repairs to make it another season. And that’s a disappointing thing to find out after you spend over $500 on it, you know. I’m not sure that’s an acceptable risk you have to take with clogs, but still!
In all honesty, I don’t know how my recently acquired Loeffler Randalls are going to hold up, but the signs are extremely encouraging. This brand’s shoes retail usually for $350-$450; these were originally $360 (I paid about a third of that for them). But I can see they’re worth it. First, they feel like heaven. Soft, buttery kidskin upper, perfectly shaped, not too narrow or constricting, not too wide to lose its elegance–very nice! The sole is generously padded and there is a mini-wedge heel which offers plenty of support (which I sorely need). There is a subtle gold trim at the peep-toe (not so visible in the picture), which make them extra-elegant, but tastefully so. And overall, you can just see that they are very well made: all stitches and glues hold up, and there is attention to detail all around.
I wore them around the house and just a little bit outside, and I was SO happy with how they felt. I’m glad to report, Loeffler Randall lives up to the hype. And that’s encouraging–we need more lines like these, youthful, well-designed, tasteful, and COMFORTABLE around. Well done, indeed!

I’m already a fan of Loeffler Randall’s line of flats that are both feminine and chic. So, you can imagine how happy I was to find this full page preview spread of Loeffler Randall for Target in the December issue of People magazine. I’m sold on the gold rosette flat, which looks like it could be sold at Neiman Marcus for hundred of dollars, but will be available to the Target masses for only $29.99. Of course, it’s made of vinyl but seriously, how luxuries does it look? The creme crinkle tote with fake gold hardware is also going on my must have list. My wardrobe is lacking a light colored purse. I’ve held off buying one for years because I can’t bare to drop hundred of dollars on a purse only to have it accumulate dirt and other marks. However, I think at that the price of $39.99, I may have finally found my white tote.
With CFDA Accessory Design winner Jessie Loeffler Randall at the helm, it looks like Target has another fashion home run on their hands that will sell out quickly. You can be sure that I’ve got my calendar marked for December 30th, which is when the line will be available in stores.
Update: The folks at Elle have more images of the Loeffler Randall for Target line. To be honest, my initial reaction to the line has subsided a bit after seeing their pictures. Maybe it’s the bright, sharp lights, but doesn’t this gold flat and pleather clutch look, dare I say, a bit one the cheaper side?
The experience is even sweeter if you can find some nice deals to brighten your day. Because I’m generous like that and want to spread the good cheer of shoes to all womankind, I’m going to share with you some coupons on Barefoot Tess, a wonderful shoe site which you should all go visit right now.
First: Chie Mihara Lumi! An expensive, but extremely cool T-strap flat, alluringly gleaming in all kinds of awesome. Type in the discount code LUMI to get 30% off these beautiful shoes ($315 retail price).
Then, there’s a chance to stock up for next summer, alas, with the Dolce Vita “Nimbus” flats. They are already reduced to $24.00, but you can have them for $15.00 dollars by typing in NIMBUS at checkout. They’re practically free, is all I’m saying. (Also available in deliciously vintage-y red-and-white stripes.) If you’re in the mood for something more season appropriate and less flirty, try this Matt Bernson Clinton wedge. You can save $70 off the regular $175 purchase price by typing CLINTON at checkout.
Finally, a shoe I’ve almost bought: Loeffler Randall “Mina” flats - available in silver or black. Type MINA for 40% off the list price. They’re originally $360, so your price would be (*calculates at lightning speed*) $216. Not bad at all!
Happy bargain shopping, shoe lovers!
