Weekly Shopping Update: 10.25.2013

Earlier this week, in my enthusiasm to share (what I then thought was) a great sale with you all, I failed to confirm the ready availability of the coupon before posting and found out later that this coupon was distributed randomly and with a limited distribution. Apologies for any confusion and disappointment this may have caused.

I ordered the Leopard Print Collar Wool Blend Twill Pea Coat some time ago, having fallen in love with the leopard print collar (which I intended to wear with everything). In person, I found the large front pockets somewhat distracting and decided against keeping it. The fit is TTS.

I expected to love these Kate Spade Ginny Flats but found that slingback flats look dowdy on my feet. If you account for the 20% off discount noted above, this shoe is sold at Amazon for more than 75% off its list price of $228. Nordstrom is still selling it at full price, Designs by Stephene is selling it for $160, 6PM at $126.99, and Bloomingdale’s at $149.

I ordered the shoes in a my usual size 7 (I normally wear 6.5 or 7 and have medium-width feet) but could’ve gone down half a size as well. If you are not between sizes, your normal shoe size should work. With all pointed toe shoes, those with wider feet should also order half a size up to compare.

There is little arch support and the soles are thin which lead me to think that these shoes can’t be extremely comfortable but reviews for the shoe were mostly positive so my initial impression could be wrong.

Happy shopping!
