Toasty Toes on Cold Nights

As the evenings grow colder, we all look for ways to keep our feet warm. Thick socks can do the trick, as can utilitarian slippers. But why do simple utilitarianism when you can do superfantastic and practical at the same time?

Orange Jonquil Goody Goody Slippers Goody Goody makes deliciously whimsical slippers that will toast your toes and light up your eyes at the same time. Made of silks, velvets, and rich brocades trimmed with handmade ribbon flowers or elegant tassels, these slippers are not just your average toe-warmers. They’re works of art you can walk in. And right now, selected styles are on sale, including the exuberant Orange Jonquil style shown here.

The usual price for adult-sized slippers is $43.00, which isn’t at all bad. The sale price, though, is $34.40, which is definitely better. Oh, and don’t forget to check out the childrens’ styles, too! Normally priced at $31.00, selected styles are marked down to just $24.80. Isn’t it worth that to keep your child’s feet warm and spark imagination?

Put Your Best Foot Forward

In the normal course of events, I leave all questions of footwear to The Manolo’s superior talents. He is the expert, the master, and the tastemaker. I am but his loyal minion.

Today, however, comes a sale that I cannot pass up and cannot fail to inform you of, and that sale happens to be a gigantic one-day shoe sale at Bluefly.com. Both men’s and women’s shoes are available at a fraction of the original price, and even of Bluefly’s usual discount prices. Shoes like these superfantastic Stuart Weitzman bejeweled Cuando evening sandals.

Stuart Weitzman Evening Sandals The combination of elegant black peau de soie with rhinestones and amber-colored beads is timeless with a twist. Delicate yet bold, and just a tiny touch sassy, these sandals would be superfantastic at any formal event.

Best of all, they’re on sale, remember? The retail price on these beauties is $375.00. Bluefly usually sells them for $225.00, which is a great deal. Just for today, however, they are marked down to $112.99! That’s 70% off the retail price and more than $100.00 off the Bluefly bargain price!

Not in the market for evening sandals? Not to worry. There are literally hundreds of fabulous flats, pretty pumps, bitchin’ boots, wonderful wedges, and superfantastic slides available at bargain basement prices from all your favorite shoe designers. Sizes and stock are limited on some of these, so I’d recommend moving fast.

Here Come the Bridesmaids?

One of the biggest annoyances in planning a wedding is coming up with the bridesmaid’s outfits. It’s hard to find one style that comes in everyone’s size, looks good on each woman, and fits even a tight budget…let alone will be something that can be worn later on!

This morning I got an unlikely solution from a peek at the Newport News website. They’re having a huge dress sale right now, and I spotted something that would be a great solution to the bridesmaid question.

Newport News Bridesmaid This pretty dress features soft pleating that is forgiving to most figures and comes in three lucious bright colors. The flower is a detachable brooch that can be moved to where you like it best or simply left off, if preferred.

It comes in women’s and petite sizes as well as misses, and has been marked down from $89.00 to just $69.00. But the thing that really made me think of bridesmaids is the fact that if you buy two or more right now, you’ll get another 20% off at checkout!

There’s even a matching sandal which is also on sale right now.

At $29.00, it’s hard to go too far wrong.
