Saks + Footwear News Announce Sexy Shoes Finalists (Help Pick The Winner!)

It’s a divine morning when you get to sneak into their shoe department of Saks Fifth Avenue before the retailer is even open and have an intimate moment with some of the most beautiful foot adornments of right now. Or at least that was my experience as I fawned over the aisles of designer shoes before me. The invitation came on behalf of Saks Fifth Avenue and Footwear News which announced the ’25 Sexy Shoes’ finalists in their competition featuring designs of brands including Miu Miu, Manolo Blahnik, Roger Vivier, Stuart Weitzman, Nicholas Kirkwood, Tabitha Simmons, YSL, and more.
Now that they’ve selected the 25 sexy shoes of right now, it’s up to the public to vote their favorite (and naturally there’s something in it for you). By voting you’re automatically entered to win a $10,000 Saks Fifth Avenue shopping spree. A second place winner will be selected as well for a $1,500 gift card. Vote online at Footwearnews.com/sexyshoes. You can vote onc a day  through Oct. 11. The more times you vote, the more chances to win!

Just look at all of these beauties…

CoupTessa Fools Day

ConTessa April Fools Day joke

Happy April friends! Yesterday, I woke to an email from a friend with the subject line “Jimmy Choos”? And inside was a link to daily deal site, CoupTessa for $5 for the designer shoes from Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik & more (Value $1200, Save $1195). A deal too good to be true? Yes, it was a big whopping April Fools joke, and I for once didn’t fall for it—I emailed my friend back saying it was a prank. Although a part of me was going to feel really stupid if I was wrong. What gave it away for me was the ‘unlimited coupons per customer’ part. I think had they said 1/per customer it would have been more realistic and hilarious since everyone would be calling all their friends, family and going nuts to get even more pairs.

That evening I received a press release about the occurrence and I was right! Apparently their phones were ringing off the hook all morning and everyone had a good laugh out of it, especially the subscribers themselves. Definitely my kind of prank –funny but not harmful or embarrassing. I have to give it to CoupTessa, that was a good one and considering how much the deal circulated and a really brilliant marketing campaign.
