Insomniac Sale Picks: Colorful Pumps with 3″ or Shorter Heels

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Mary requested a few picks for colorful, quality pumps with heels 3″ or shorter, so here we go:

lifestride pumps

LifeStride Parigi Pump – was $60, now $15.99 – $54.95

Such a pretty, classic round-toe pump, and with a walkable 2.5″ heel and insole cushioning. Most available colors aren’t super bright, but this mint is fabulous for spring, and you can also nab this style in navy patent, burgundy reptile, coral reptile, wine croc print, gold leather, and an array of neutrals from black to cognac to white. Available in U.S. sizes 5 – 12, including A, C, and E widths. Size and width availability varies by color. Some colors and sizes also available at DSW.

nine west purple heels

Nine West Swaymeso Pump – was $79, now $63.20
with code SHOESNBAGS

Although the listing says this color is blue, it looks mighty purple to me. Regardless, it’s a great bold shade for spring and summer with a rounded toe and 2.5″ heel. Available in this blue/purple as well as pink or white in U.S. sizes 5 – 12. Size availability varies by color. If you strike out size-wise, this Nine West pointed-toe suede heel is a great alternative in bright pink or emerald green, and can be protected with a little Timberland Balm Proofer. And this lovely yellow pump by Bandolino comes in wide widths.

hush puppies red high heel

Hush Puppies Imagery Pump – was $80, now $24 – $47.40

If you prefer a block heel, these Hush Puppies are a fabulous option. With a stable 2″ heel and rounded toe, these will keep you comfy for hours. This bold red is my favorite, but the style also comes in navy and a variety of neutrals. Available in U.S. sizes 5.5 – 12, including some C/D widths. Size and width availability varies by color.

trotters navy pumps

Trotters Penelope Pump – was $130, now $31.20 – $104
with code SHOESNBAGS

Navy might not be the most thrilling color in the world, but it is versatile and I know some of you are on the lookout for classic navy pumps. This style has a 0.25″ hidden platform and 2″ heel for a perceived height of 2″. The toe is on the almond side of round and very elegant. Navy suede is also available, along with burgundy leather, burgundy suede, blush, and neutrals including cognac, taupe, and black. Available in U.S sizes 5 – 12, including A and C/D widths. Size and width availability varies by color.

 

Honorable mentions:

  • These suede pumps from Ara are only available in a few sizes, but chunky, funky, and cute. In yellow, purple, or orange
  • The Naturalizer Lennox is a classic, and available in this season in navy patent or teal suede.

 

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for colorful, quality pumps with heels 3″ or shorter:

  1. Nine West – As evidenced above. Prints, solids, pastels, and primaries. Love this bold red d’Orsay pair.
  2. Miz Mooz – Lots of fun options, and all of them comfy and well made. Check Amazon, too.
  3. Cole Haan – Top quality, and lots of great colors. Amazon has some prints and solids, too.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Sophisticated Easter and Spring Holiday Dresses

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Stephanie requested a few picks for Easter and spring holiday dresses for grown women, so here we go:

jcrew bridesmaid dress

J.Crew Heidi Dress in Silk Chiffon – was $250, now $119.99 – $200

Starting off with the most expensive pick of the night as a reminder that the J.Crew Wedding section is a fantastic place to shop for sophisticated but simple dresses for just about any dressy occasion. This gorgeous silk dress will be great for the upcoming spring holidays, but will also serve you through any summer weddings you might be attending. You could probably even dress it down with a contrasting cardigan and flats and wear it to the office. Available in 19 mouthwatering colors in sizes 00 – 20, as well as some petite and tall sizes. Size availability varies by color. Couldn’t find a similar shape in a formal material, but Land’s End has several lovely surplice dresses in sizes 1X – 3X.

lands end floral sheath dress

Land’s End Sleeveless Welt-pocket Dress – was $79.99, now $59.99

Florals are fab for spring celebrations, and this one has a great mix of colors – robin’s egg blue and lavender can be pulled out for parties and family gatherings, but you can mute the print by pulling out tan or navy to take this dress to work. I own this same style of dress in solid navy, and it’s comfortable, versatile, and washable. Available in sizes 2 – 18 as well as petite and plus sizes. Also love this similar print faux wrap skirt sheath in sizes  0 – 36W.

retro fit and flare dress

eShakti Amelia Dress – was $69.95, now $50.95

This dress may aggravate anyone whose figure rebels against Designated Boob Room, but always remember that you can customize eShakti dresses for a small fee, right down to bust measurements. I’d pair this with a cropped jacket or floaty wrap, festive necklace, and simple sandals. Also available in pale blue, Prussian blue, or green in sizes 0 – 36W. Of course, if you’re doing Easter and want to go literal, there’s always this bunny-print shirt dress.

 

Honorable mentions:

 

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for Easter dresses for grown women:

  1. J.Crew Wedding – The bridesmaid dresses are classy, simple, and elegant – and gobs are in pastels right now, which is great for spring holidays.
  2. Talbots – The Events and Occasions section is filled with lovely frocks, like this timeless floral sheath.
  3. eShakti – Shipping takes around three weeks, so timeline might be too tight, but this site offers great options in sizes 0 – 36W, including this scallop-trim dress in four lovely colors.

Insomniac Sale Picks: Stylish Casual Pants

*In this late-night feature – which will run on Tuesday and Thursday of each week – I’ll gather up three fun items that are currently on sale online and share them with you! I would LOVE suggestions: Stylish wide-width pumps? Classic v-necked sweaters? Chandelier earrings? Petite dress slacks? What would you like to see featured?*

Diane requested a few picks for stylish casual pants (that aren’t jeans), so here we go:

gap tencel jogger

Gap Tencel Jogger Pant – was $59.95, now $31.50
with code WOW

You all know I love a slouchy pant, and Gap is hitting it out of the park with their offerings. This version is machine-washable tencel and cropped, so ideal for warm spring and summer days. Available in this steel blue as well as khaki or black in sizes XS – XXL. Size availability varies by color. Also available in petite and tall sizes. For an even more casual look, try these cargo joggers. I own them in olive and absolutely adore them. This style is a little slouchier, but so chic and available in sizes 12 – 32.

prana corduroy pant

Prana Trinity Corduroy Pant – was $159, now $109

Cords are always a great alternative to denim, especially if you like colorful pants. This slim-fit, low-rise pair comes in this burgundy as well as washed red, teal, mustard, and a pretty paisley print in sizes 0 – 14. Size availability varies by color. A few more size/color combos on Amazon, too. This straight-leg cord style is available in nine amazing colors in sizes 14W – 26W. For more colorful non-corduroy pant options in regular, petite, and plus sizes, check Talbots.

old navy pixie pant

Old Navy Pixie Ankle Pant – was $34.94, now $25

Windowpane print is very on-trend right now, and these would look super cute with a graphic tee, denim jacket, and flats. Not a fan of this print? This stretchy cotton style comes in solid red, gray, black, white, tan, and navy as well as 11 other darling prints including florals, pindots, and geometrics. Available in sizes 0 – 20. Size availability varies by color. Also in petite, tall, and plus sizes. Prefer full-length? This Boden slim trouser comes in great colors and prints.

Other not-currently-on-sale resources for stylish casual pants:

  1. Gap – Worth repeating! Love their track pants, colorful chinos, and interesting shapes.
  2. NYDJ – I actually think their pants are far better than their jeans. Love the zipper pockets on this pair.
  3. Boden – Everything from drapey dressy to printed and cropped.
