Uggs Sale at HauteLook!

uggs+hautelook Uggs Sale at HauteLook!

I don’t care what anyone says about Uggs being ugly. I adore them. They are some of the most comfortable footwear I’ve ever worn (I own three pairs of boots and a pair of slippers). Seriously, when you wear them, it feels like you’re walking on clouds.

The downside is that Uggs are expensive. But don’t be tempted by shearling-lined charlatans. Nothing is as comfy cozy as the real deal. Your best bet is to patiently wait ’til Uggs go on sale – and then make your move.

That’s exactly what I plan to do on Monday, July 25 at 11am…because HauteLook is having an Uggs sale! I probably shouldn’t tell you this because I don’t want too much shopping competition. But you know I can’t keep a secret from my Spoiled Pretty sisters.
So whether you’re an Uggs newbie looking to make your first purchase or a seasoned vet adding to your collection, I suggest you set an alarm for this sale – because I predict the stock will go quickly.

And if you’re not already a member of HauteLook, I highly suggest that you join right now (membership is free) – so you’re signed up and ready to shop when the sale kicks off on Monday.

Nine West Wowza Sandals

nine+west+wowza+sandal Nine West Wowza Sandals

So this weekend, I went shoe shopping at Macy’s and bought these super fun Wowza sandals (also available in gold) from Nine West. They look so good on my feet that the $79 price tag didn’t really faze me. But it sure stung later that day when I saw my new shoes on ninewest.com – for $32 cheaper!

Now, if it was only a $5, $10, or $15 difference, I might have just cursed my bad luck and got on with my life. But $32 is a different story. So I went back to Macy’s, returned the sandals and then bought them online when I returned home. I even managed to find a free shipping coupon code, so I made out like a bandit.

Only down side is that I have to wait about a week to wear my cute new kicks.

Bare Traps Trystine Boot: Stylish Answer to the Wide Calf Conundrum

If you have wide calves like me, you know how physically and emotionally exhausting it can be to shop for tall boots. The funny thing is that my calves aren’t even that fat. It’s as if shoe designers are making boots for anorexic appendages…or trying to embarrass all of us thick-legged sistas so that we struggle, in vain, zipping up a cute boot while all these other heffas simply just slip them on.

bare+traps+trystine+boot Bare Traps Trystine Boot: Stylish Answer to the Wide Calf Conundrum

Anyway, I lucked out a few weeks ago when I purchased these super cute boots at DSW.com. I first spied the Trystine Wide Calf Boots by Bare Traps at my local DSW store, but they didn’t have my size in stock. So when I returned home, I logged onto dsw.com and ordered a pair.

The store’s limited size offerings actually worked out in my favor because I used three coupon codes (920 for 10% off, SHIPR for free standard shipping, and 919 for 500 bonus points added to my DSW Rewards account). So the $59.99 boots ended up only costing me $53.96 – and I’m closer to my next rewards certificate.

The Trystine boot, while synthetic, look like the real thing. The heel is high enough to elongate and visually slim the leg, yet low enough that they’re comfortable all day long. The boot shaft circumference is roomy enough that I can wear them over leggings and skinny jeans. I can also pair them with skirts and dresses.

And for those of you lucky enough to have average sized calves, the Trystine Boot comes in a regular width too.
