Tabitha Simmons Toni Metallic Leather Sandal Spring 2018

Tabitha Simmons Toni sandal | 4″ / 100mm heel | available at Net-A-Porter, Moda Operandi, Barneys, Shopbop and Tabitha Simmons.

When Tabitha Simmons isn’t designing fabulous heels she is the contributing stylist at American Vogue, so we know that she constantly knows what is in-style before anyone. Toni is from Tabitha Simmons’s latest collection featuring gold and silver two-tone leather making it a great sandal to match any type of jewelry. They’re set on a block heel and have a slim ankle strap. We would pair these sandals with some of our favorite dresses from RIXO London, Diane von Furstenberg and Self-Portrait.

Saint Laurent Tribute Spring 2018 Peeptoe Pump copy

Saint Laurent Tribute peep-toe pump | 4.5″ / 110mm heel | available in suede at Net-A-Porter, Farfetch and Saint Laurent and in brown leather at Farfetch.

Saint Laurent’s’ legacy is built on luxurious hedonism and making women feel beautiful with confidence. With the Tribute sandal being the face of Saint Laurent’s shoe house we know they are designed to pair nicely with any ensemble. These heels are from the Spring 2018 collection featuring a sleek open toe cut resting upon the platform, an ankle strap with side buckle fastening and 110mm heel. We are loving these new pieces from Saint Laurent’s Spring collection including this sequin silk georgette mini dress, punk rock leather jacket and lace-up bustier.

Jimmy Choo April Platform Sandal Spring 2018

Jimmy Choo April sandal | 5″ / 120mm heel | available in black suede at Net-A-Porter, Bergdorf Goodman and Farfetch plus in blue suede a MyTheresa.

Jimmy Choo’s classic April sandals are back this Spring 18′ season with a show stopping 120mm chunky block heel. We get a 60’s feel while looking at these sandals featuring a 3omm platform, front crossover straps, velvety suede and side buckle fastening. We’re thinking retro printed mini skirts, flare leg trousers and form fitting dresses would pair nicely with the April sandal.

Yes, I promise – It’s actually possible. Looking for a deal? Or maybe you’re hunting for an amazing style you’re craving from several seasons ago? Look not further, we’ve got you covered! Here’s a list of retailers carrying Christian Louboutin shoes on sale!

1. Amuze

You have to make an account to access the sales. Amuze feature’s discounted Christian Louboutin shoes all the time. You’ll be put in their daily email list and receive notices whenever the red soles are stocked (side note – they have awesome Valentino Rockstud sales too :))

christian-louboutin-shoes-on-sale-amuze

2. Ebay

Good ol’ eBay, the marketplace for anything and everything. Due to the selling of inauthentic shoes, I strongly urge you to look a the users reviews and selling history, closely look at the product photos, and filter to shop only from North America. It goes without saying but be street-smart – if the price is “too good to be true”…….it probably is. With that being said, I’ve seen fantastic Christian Louboutin shoe prices well below retail price.

3. Bluefly

Bluefly’s been around forever and I was little surprised when I looked at their latest selection for this post. They carry more recent styles but note that the discounts aren’t “heavy” – averaging around 20% off retail price.

christian-louboutin-discount-bluefly

4. Gilt 

Another classic, Gilt! Gilt’s sales aren’t as regular as some of the other membership type sites meaning you have to join the site and receive the email alerts to be notified of an upcoming Christian Louboutin sale. Another tip, shop fast! The Louboutin styles sell out in a flash.

christian-louboutin-shoes-on-sale

5. Matches Fashion

This sale section from Matches is new and welcomed. For every shoe designer really including Louboutin, this is a fashion trouve featuring 40-50% off, happy hunting!

6. The Outnet

Discount sister to Net-A-Porter, some of the hottest shoes you missed at retail will pop up on The Outnet. Remember when they did the $1 sale forever ago? Again, these styles sell fast so be fast.

7. The Real Real

This is an online consignment boutique featuring over 6,000 styles of Christian Louboutin shoes. They also promise that every item is 100% the real thing. Bonus! Use Code EXTRA20 for an extra 20% off‎.

8. Bag Borrow or Steal

Not just for bags anymore, the premiere designer borrowing site has expanded into other consignment areas (for buying) including designer shoes. I suggest following them on Facebook as they regularly hold sales including ‘extra 30% off deals’.

pre-owned-christian-louboutin-shoes

9. Tradesy

I haven’t personally used this site but it’s very popular and they current have 27,000 Christian Louboutin shoes to shop! It’s a great site to snag the classics including the original Pigalle pump or the staple So Kate.

sell-christian-louboutin-shoes

Note that most department stores and luxury online retailers will have select styles on discount for end-of-season sales but this usually only happens twice a year (Nordstrom has an anniversary sale too). So look out for end -of-season sales at Net-A-Porter, Nordstorm, Neiman Marcus & Saks Fifth Avenue.

Also, I’ll be sending a sale guide for the upcoming holidays and Black Friday, so sign up!
