New Boots

You can never have too many pairs of shoes.

I just ordered a new pair of Steve Madden boots from Nordstrom – can’t wait until they get here! I don’t have a pair of shorter boots now that I can wear with jeans, just taller pairs. These seemed like exactly what I was looking for. They should arrive in a few days and I’m crossing my fingers I love them just as much in person as I did when I saw them online.

New Spring Shoes

Can it just be spring already?  I’m so ready to whip out the summer clothes and shoes!  I recently realized all my black flats are very wintery and thought, that just won’t do.

Steve Madden Black Woven Flats

Scored these black woven Steve Madden flats for a sweet price at DSW.  I love the weaving – makes them different from normal flats.

Again – can spring hurry up and get here already??

Personal Shopping Lockdown

One of my kitchen magnets

I’ve put myself on a money lockdown until the end of the year.  Seriously.  This means no new pairs of boots, bags, dresses or fall coats.  None.  The fantasticly slouchhy Steve Madden boots I just purchased (at a fantastic price, I might add) hold the place as the last item I’m buying for myself in 2010.

Nonetheless, we are entering into the holiday season.  I’ll admit I’ve even started Christmas shopping.  My money-saving methods are carrying over into the holiday arena – I’m hunting for the best gifts at the best price.  Makes sense, right?  Even though I tend to spend more than I want on shopping at times, I pride myself on typically staying within budget over the holidays while not skimping on gifts – no one better disagree with me. : )

Tips for Holiday Saving:

  1. Determine your budget and stick to it – I don’t set a FIRM budget down to the cent because sometimes you see things you know someone will love, but I DO set a budget.  I make a list of who I need to shop for and almost tier them out according to dollar amounts.  For example, Mom and Dad take up more of the budget than some of my girlfriends.  I determine what  I will spend on each person and do my best to hold true.
  2. Know how to find the best price – Check multiple shopping sites before making a final decision.  For fashion and apparel, sites like Shop It To Me aggregate different shopping sites into one so you can find the best price.  For other items, Google Shopping does a really great job of helping to find the best prices.
  3. Make a running shopping list – I literally have a running email draft entitled “CHRISTMAS” with links of things I’ve seen for different people.
  4. Shop with cash when possible – Bring cash if you’re planning on shipping at the mall vs. online.  It’s harder to part with cash than plastic. : )

Anyone else already getting in the Christmas spirit?

Fall Boots

I’ve been stalking a certain pair of Steve Madden boots, so I was all too excited to see them go on sale for 50% off on ideeli yesterday. They retail for $79 but were on sale for $39.  Given I had a free $25 credit, that made the boots $14.  Score.


Steve Madden Cupidd Boots: $39 on sale from $79

I wanted a pair of slouchy fall boots.  I initially leaned toward black, but don’t have olive-colored boots yet.
