Do you remember a decade ago, when Nine West was anything but cutting edge and classy? When reliability and a similarity to Payless were its more noted features? Now, of course, it’s anything but. New leadership and designers as well as the Boutique 9 collection have updated this brand considerably. Hold a purple Stuart Weitzman pump next to a Nine West pump, and you might have trouble telling them apart, though the former would probably be more comfortable and hold up longer because of better materials.
Nine West has also further developed its bag and coat collections to include chic laptop totes, slouchy animal print bags and cute trendy coats.
For the girl on a budget, Stuart Weitzman is a cut above affordable, and cutting edge class at a discount is the recession name of the game. So it’s good to know Nine West is having sales in its stores and online, often thirty percent off. The New York store on 6th Avenue is almost always having sales, but can be swamped at lunchtime. In the San Francisco store on the Embarcadero that I visited yesterday, shopping was easy and relaxing. Here are some photos of the sales, and you can find most of them online here.
