Clockwise from top-left: Strappy studded heels from Zigi Soho ($59.95); Cut-out details on real-leather Steve Madden Luxe Collection heels ($42 on clearance); Metallic/Python gladiator flats by Modern Vintage ($129.95 - ouch!); Gucci-inspired platform heels (also similar to the YSL Tribute heel) by Diba ($49.95).
A few days ago I checked out my nearest DSW to see what was in store for spring, and I must say I was very impressed. While the most current styles weren't priced that much lower than what you'd pay at a department store, they had a fantastic selection and you can always wait for a sale (or sign up for the DSW rewards club online or in-store to get coupons via email and snail mail.) I tried on just about every shoe in the clearance section and ended up buying a pair of Calvin Klein black leather platform pumps from $40, marked down 80 percent (you do the math, hehe). Incidentally, those are the only shoes I did not photograph yet, that pic will have to come. Do you have love for DSW? What's your strategy for scoring great deals at this popular shoe warehouse?
Steve Madden Luxe Collection Flats, $69.94 plus additional mark-down (I forget what the blue tag represents)
Huarache-inspired high heel sandals by Lauren Ralph Lauren.
BCBG Paris cage heels (remind me of the YSL cage platforms)
I came really close to getting these Steve Madden Luxe shoeties (?) with cut-out detailing. Real leather, pretty comfy but would have liked a padded footbed. They were about $42 on clearance.
I was in love with this buttery soft leather cross-body style bag by The Sak but it was still around $100. Not bad, but not a bargain!
My DSW had a decent selection of bags and clutches by Urban Expressions (high quality designer-inspired bags), Franco Sarto, Jessica Simpson, Tignanello, Mondani and more.
More bags in happy spring colors!
