I took my first trip to Designer Shoe Warehouse (DSW), a US retailer who recently opened its doors in Canada. As you may have guessed by the name, DSW is known for having designer shoes at warehouse prices. The store I visited was quite large, had great selection, and was well organized. The prices were reasonable, and as a deal hunter, I was pleasantly surprised to find a sale section at the back of the store, even with it having been recently opened. It was there that I was able to score these Jessica Simpson “Venita 2” leopard pumps, (made of printed pony hair and stretch fabric, with a 4-inch heel), for just a fraction of the retail price. Typically, these pumps sell for $130.00 CDN, however DSW had them marked down to $79.99, and then an additional 70% off, making these beauties just $23.88! The elastic fabric makes these shoes surprisingly comfortable to wear, and the leopard print is perfect for Fall’s warmer color palette. Love!
With my birthday having just passed, I received my annual coupons from various stores, including one for 25% off my purchase at Payless Shoe Source. Right now, Payless is also having their BOGO event (buy one, get one 50% off), which you can combine with birthday coupons (or the survey coupon you receive on the bottom of your receipts). While all the prices at Payless are reasonable, I always check out the clearance first. I picked up the Ivy City Sandal(shown on right). I don’t typically go for a chunky heel, but was drawn to their simple, classic look (they also come in royal blue). For my second pair, I chose the Elektra Platform Espadrille in black (on left). I love the way the modern, faux snake print upper contrasts with the beachy, casual, woven trim on the bottom.
So just how much did I score these for? Both pairs of shoes were on clearance for just $21.00 CDN each. This alone is already a great deal. But, with the BOGO offer and my birthday coupon, my total came to just $23.62 plus tax!
