Cyber Monday is nigh!

During the month of November you can always find me doing 2 things: Counting down the days until my family's Thanksgiving feast...and counting down the days until shopping deals begin! My shopper-girl's heart is beyond excited for Cyber Monday (the perfect way for me to stay in my turkey coma and still shop!). Yep, the Monday after Thanksgiving Day in the United States is when the droves skip the long lines, and go to their keyboards for the best in online deal hunting. Cyber Monday has quickly become the biggest online shopping days of the year--and my fashionista eye is focused especially on the great shoe deals spotted for Cyber Monday at Macy's! Check it:

Heels for dayyyyys, I'm finding all kindsa deals on pumps and peep toes for work and weekend, holiday parties, and nights out on the town! I may or may not be obsessing over these glam pumps by Nine West, that come in an array of colors--I can see myself dancing the night away at that upcoming New Year's party, or being the talk of a cocktail party with these beauties on my feet. Or add a touch of color with these Nine West's peep toe pumps that have that metallic detail that's oh-so chic. And every gal needs an updated pair of classic black leather pumps, that's why these Betsey Johnson's are perfect for the price.



Suede pumps are making a comeback this season--which is why I am drooling over these blue suede shoes from Paris Hilton, and these classic magenta pumps from INC. Browse through the full list of discounts on heels here, too.


Outstanding prices on those coveted cold weather boots are topping my winter-lovin' list as well. The buy one, get one at 50% off offer is definitely something that caught my eye--the more boots, the better! Lovin' me some COACH and Betsey Johnson rain boots...


Spend your Cyber Monday scouring the webpages of one of the largest department stores in the U.S. of A., and get deals and steals from the best at Macy's.

Soft as suede.

As I dig through my shoe closet and take a careful look at my favorite work pumps to wear on a daily basis, I find that they all have one thing in common: suede. I just love the texture and feel of suede pumps. They show off that softer side of my style--the classic girl that occasionally shows her face when the eclectic artsy girl needs a wardrobe break. I love suede.

So it's no wonder when I set my eyes on these 'Lillian' suede bow pumps from the oh-so classic Banana Republic, I fell right in love. The soft as suede upper covering on this just about 3" heel is a must-have. This Banana Republic pump has a breathable synthetic lining, and an exclusice padding system, featuring memory foam and a cushioned insole designed for that all-day comfort that your working girl feetsies call for. In two great colors, too...

Show the softer side of your style this fall/winter season, and be as soft as suede.

Steel toe sass.

There is nothing like a shoe that commands attention. Not the Lady Gaga type of attention--the outrageous, runway-only type of shoe--but the type of heel that you want to slip on when you're leading a big-time boardroom meeting, make a meaningful presentation, or heading out to a high school reunion. You know, when you just need that extra "umph" of confidence.

A current crush of mine for this fall/winter's trend season has got to be the steel-toe sass on heels, flats and boots out there right now. I, too, have been filling my closet lately with metallic capped shoes and loving their wannabe girl in command attitude.

Check out my top faves hitting the interwebs right this second:

Dolce Vita's 'Selina' pump is pure perfection. A pointed toe pump with a gold cap flair, this 4-inch heel boasts leather lining and outsole, ais 100% kid suede. If you ask me the price is just right on this one, too.
 For the more daring dame in you, Stuart Weitzman sports the 'Tipbootie'. One hundred percent suede, with a 3" heel, this pointed toe bootie with gold specchio tip is made to stand out in a crowd.
The daring Truth or Dare by Madonna brings you this 'Corlew' pump, with a new spin on the gold cap heel. And Madonna would, wouldn't she?! Check out the metal detail at the toe of this 3.5" heel, and you'll see what sets it apart from the rest. With a 100% haircalf upper, this black leather pump is perfect for the upcoming holiday parties and cocktail hours on your calendar this season.
 
For the girl on a budget, I highly recommend the 'Finney' cap toe pumps from TOBI.com. TOBI is my new favorite online shop for bargain styles and trends. Here's how I wore my own 'Finney' pumps--from workday to playday:



So show off that steel toe sass this season!

Say it with slippers.

So I do a lot of reviews on shoes...heels, you know, my first love. It's just sorta my thing. But after a long day of high heel wearing and running around the office, the secret to keeping my feet happy lies in a good pair of cozy slippers. I gotta take care of these feet, ya know?! And because I just found some amazing new sheepskin slippers from a fab online shop called LAMO, I decided to share the good news with y'all, too.

Headquartered just outside the city of Los Angeles, it's easy to see a strong LA influence in their slipper to street wear style. The LAMO look is relaxed and comfy, with an edge and an eye for on-trend. LAMO uses the best sheepskins, dense soft wool from Australian Merino sheep, and a premium quality of Australian Merino wool. Not only is LAMO super quality, but they are super earth-friendly too--using production methods and materials that minimize environmental impact big-time. From their slippers, boots, and moccasins, LAMO carries dozens of darling designs that are bound to make your feet say "ahhhhhhh!"

Check out my own pair of LAMO's--hard soles make them the perfect house shoe and winter slipper for inside and outside:






Shop LAMO and get your own slippers or shoes, or snag some for your holiday shopping list. These make the perfect comfy gift for that guy or gal in need of a little pampering!

Happy slipper wearing to your fashionista feet!
