I stopped in to Saks Off Fifth at Concord Mills mall yesterday, and to my surprise there was a fabulous shoes sale going on. I thought I should be nice and share the news and not keep all the haute-ness to myself. The sale will continue through Nov. 29. With all ladies shoes at 40 percent off, I would suggest getting there as soon as possible.
Ladies, we all know how expensive a pair of Giuseppe's can cost you. But the first great thing is is that they're at the Outlet, which, by the way, does not just carry last season's styles. I can tell you as a previous retail buyer, much of what ends up in the outlets are items we overbought so don't be fooled. Secondly, with an additional 40 percent off, we're talking about purchasing a coveted black, bejeweled Guiseppe worthy of any little black dress for $227.99.
I also spotted the perfect pair of animal print shoes shoes by 5/48, which is actually one of the Saks brands. Animal print, especially leopard, is all the rage this season, so there's no way you can go wrong with these babies priced at $77.99.
Another favorite was the super comfortable Frye boot. Frye is another brand that can be pretty expensive, but thank the shoe angels that these are on sale for $137.99. Need I say more? I loved almost every shoe I saw.
The only thing my "shopping partner" didn't love was the fact that men's shoes weren't on sale this time.
Oh well ... more shoes for me!
