I get it, toucan sandals aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I loved these when Kate Spade debuted them last summer. I stalked the heck out of them, hoping they’d hit the sale section before warm weather was just a distant memory. No luck. They weren’t discounted until fall, when sandals weren’t exactly the most practical purchase. Even then, the price wasn’t that great and I wrote them off as yet another sartorial white whale. I certainly didn’t expect to find them on Amazon this week for just $70. Most of the sizes are still available in limited stock, aside from the size 7, which Dave purchased for me as my Valentine’s gift. (We’re not much for surprises. And, before you think I’m a bad girlfriend, I treated him to a sour and barrel-aged beer tasting on Sunday.)
This “Green Monday” sale (seriously, when did that become a thing?) is too good to not to share. You can take 25% off everything at Kate Spade with code JACKPOT. I’m obsessed with the space-themed new arrivals, a collection full of navy and white (right up my alley). This dress is darling, as is this “Space Cadet” clutch, but my favorite piece is this chic clutch (below). I also have this wallet on my Christmas list in “celeste blue,” which is also available at Nordstrom.
[dropcap custom_class=”normal”]I[/dropcap] don’t know about you, but I still have plenty of people to check off my holiday shopping list. The thought of spending hours scouring multiple sites for the perfect presents is overwhelming, which is why I’m wrapping up my gift giving with a single shopping destination for clothes, shoes, accessories, and more: Zappos.
I recently had the opportunity to experience just how stress-free shopping with Zappos could be. As part of a collaboration with the retailer, bloggers were paired up for a Zappos Present Palooza and tasked with purchasing a present that suits the style of her giftee. I was partnered with Jessica over at Lipstick, Heels and a Baby. The gorgeous momma-to-be and I have pretty different styles, which was a little daunting at first. (No one wants to give someone a gift she doesn’t love!) But I’m happy to share that Zappos made it easy to find a gift to brighten her holiday. Once I narrowed down the product category to Bags & Handbags, I was able to sift through the results by brand (the gal loves Rebecca Minkoff!), color, and price to find this beautiful crossbody. I still had part of my budget left, so I headed off to the jewelry section in search of a pair of earrings. It seems that Jessica and I were on the same wavelength! I received this darling Kate Spade crossbody bag in Saffiano leather (see it in action here) and a pair of earrings by the brand. If you’re not sure where to start, the Zappos Gift Guide has plenty of ideas to delight those on your list.
After you’ve made your selections, Zappos makes it easy to send the items directly to the recipient with fast, free shipping. (Consider signing up for Zappos VIP service for free next business day shipping.) If your gifts somehow fall short, Zappos offers a 365-day return policy and world-class customer service to make sure your loved ones are ecstatic about their gifts (or their exchanges if it comes to that). Happy Shopping!

[dropcap custom_class=”normal”]I[/dropcap]’ve been coming across great gift ideas that I’m afraid will sell out by the time I put them in a gift guide, so I thought I’d start sporadic “Perfect Present” posts to keep you in the loop on these finds. Kate Spade’s Surprise Sale started today. I’ve got my eye on this bottle stopper for holiday gifting. At just $17 (plus $5 shipping), it’s the perfect hostess gift for those on a budget. Just add a bottle of booze if you’re feeling extra festive!
