in the spirit of the upcoming holiday, i thought i’d send a little valentine to an old love. loeffler randall and i have had a perfect love affair since they launched, as my regulars will undoubtedly know. but we hit a rocky patch in spring & fall ’09, and i’ve been angst-ridden ever since. it’s hard to say exactly where the love went – loeffler changed, i changed, and i guess i just lost that lovin’ feeling. but i’m thrilled to announce that we have finally reconciled, and the love is stronger than ever for resort & spring ’10. even if you can’t indulge, this is valentine’s day (eye) candy at its finest.
from top left: idris navajo sandal, $375; belinda snake print platform pump, down 30-ish% to $332.50; sydney birdcage flat in stingray, down 50% to $225(!); shireen studded flat, $395; carlie mignon twist sandal, $325; anna woven platform, $725 (i know, i know…but it was too pretty not to include).
oh, and here’s a little valentine for you all – one of my best frugal fashion tips: don’t let loeffler’s splurge-worthy pricing get you down! this is is one of my favorite lines not only because they make stunningly amazing shoes, but because they routinely get marked down astronomically at the end of the season. so, if you fall in love, hang in there and google regularly, paying special attention to small, indy boutiques. i’ve scored some unbelievable (under-$100!) deals that way. like, say, these blue python athena flats for $225 at lamb’s ear shoes, or these sable pale gold sandals for $112 at confederacy. (whoops, i’m sorry…did those sell out suddenly? cough, cough…)
