This isn't a new style, or a new color of an old style for the new season.

(Nor is it a cupcake.)

This Chie Mihara jam is the shoe of the day not just because I love it, but because it represents important, time sensitive news for penny pinching women's shoe lovers: For one week only, Lille Boutique is putting all of their current Chies on 50% off to make way for new arrivals.

The current selection has tons of covetable styles, and don't all scream "fall sale," such as the ones above. (A special note to brides, speaking of which: I got married last summer and found a pair of wedding-appropriate shoes I loved almost a year and a half prior to the actual event, and I didn't snatch them up because I figured I would love something from next year's season just as much. That didn't really happen, and now I can't even find them in any of the other non-bridal appropriate colors they had, and I still want them just to wear to whatever. Anyway, the point is, don't wait. I ended up scrambling, and it sucked (I lucked out with a pair of Dries Van Notens on sale at Halo, so all's well that ended well).)

Plenty of styles are fall-appropriate too, especially these bitchin', blinging oxfords:

There are many more, check 'em out now, and act fast. The week will go by quickly.
