One surprise discovery were Julia Haart shoes. This August, Julia Haart has been named La Perla’s newest creative director. Looking at some of the styles from this footwear designer’s recent collections it’s not all too surprising. You’ll find footwear located all the way in the back. The shoes on the left hand side rack were all size 37 samples while those on the table have a slightly better size variety and also come in original boxes. Collection shoes were priced at $100 and Python heels at $150. This is roughly 90% off retail. The styles were predominantly bold or embellished party heels. Think Jimmy Choo circa Tamara Mellon years meets Giuseppe Zanotti. Totally impractical and not for everyday but great for a weekend in Vegas or a New Year’s Eve party 😉
BOTTOM LINE: While ready to wear might be 90% off, the prices are still high ($100+). My advice is to check out the swimwear section where $25 separates and $50 swimsuits can be a real steal! If you are a size 37 then you may want to check out Julia Haart’s sample footwear selection. Most of these shoes retail around $1,100-$1,500 so the prices aren’t too bad if you are in the market for party heels. I will update you if there are any additional markdowns.
