I really want to urge everyone to go take a look at Barneys online store’s shoe section, they’re having unbelievable sale prices (in the $200 -$300 range) on the best-looking shoes.  But their links are totally mixed up – if I click on the Manolo Blahnik Pumamod picture on their website, it’ll lead me to a pair of Givenchy Thong slide.  Not sure what’s going on,  only the newest additions to the shoe page seem to have correct links.  Check out the YSL Tribute Sandal in gold from $790 to $315!  If you’re a lucky size 7.5 or 9, then grab them quickly before J. Lo does!  (Recently saw a picture of her walking down the stairs with the Tribute sandal while carrying her baby.  If you ask me, I would say don’t try that at home!)

I will add some other sale items to this post later today. Stay tuned!

Vivre is offering a 3-day only extra 20% off their sale items, use code VEXTRA20.

Ideeli is having a Gucci Sunglasses Sale starting 4:30PM EDT today. This website holds designer sales that’s only open to its members (kind of like Ruelala). Leave me a comment if you want an invitation.

Bergdorf Goodman sale continues (free shipping too!) with some good deals on Manoloes (I think I’m getting kind of obsessed with Manoloes 🙂  ) I love the Fieno Sequined Sandal in black, the sequins gave it a subtle sheen that makes it suitable for work or play.  The Christian Louboutin Sequined Ballet Flat is another workable option. I’m surprised that both of them are still available in many sizes. If you’re waiting for further discount, set price alert on those now (just click on the ‘set price alert’ link below. You’ll get notified by email when price changes on the item.)

Fieno Sequin Sandal $385       Sequined Ballet Flat $495

On a side note, Barneys has gotten some new Manoloes for us to look at, like the Silver Telo, the Cuttawin and the Trampa. Love it, love it, love it!!!

Check out the designer sale at Germany-based Mytheresa.com!  Their prices are VAT included. If you have it shipped into the US, you will not pay VAT, but you will have to pay duty, which adds back to about the same price listed on their website.

Barneys is having further discounts on their sale items!

(the product links at Barneys online store get changed frequently, I’ll do my best to update the links, but if you see a link going to a wrong product, that’s probably because of the changes Barneys made)

Here’re some of my favorites:

Manolo Blahnik Pumamod in red, from previous sale price of $420 to $320

The beautiful Meredetba in both Silver and Black, from $1050 to $680

Christian Louboutin Simple Pump in rapsberry with 100mm heel, from $550 to $345 (this is the perfect red shoe with red sole if you can handle the chop-stick heels!)

And Siver Sacha, from $830 to $495.

A few more words on Barneys – their online customer service has improved significantly since the last time I made a purchase. They’ve been very responsive to my emails and actually went out of their way to find answers to my questions. I’m pleasantly surprised! Kudos to Barneys!
