As mentioned in last week’s teaser post, the #DSWShoeHookup giveaway has already taken over the blogosphere and it’s about to make it’s mark right here on lil ole Sandy a la Mode.  DSW has kindly gifted me with the Coconuts Britain Boot to review and I must say, these are a great staple flat boot for dressing up or dressing down, but most importantly, being comfortable and warm.  Some of the reviews mention that the calf runs narrow, but for me, it was just a snug fit.  Plus, I don’t like having too much of a gap or space in my boots anyways.  Anyhow, DSW is hooking up 5 winners with a pair of shoes ($50 gift card) and 5 other winners with the NY Times Best Selling book, “Do You Speak Shoe Lover?  There’s 49 other bloggers that are a part of this, with a handful of giveaways that have already ended, but there’s still plenty of time to enter on all the remaining blogs and possibly get yourself (or someone else) a new pair of shoes for Christmas.  How awesome is that?

DSW was one that I would frequent in college and when I first moved to Missouri, I was so happy to have one near my house as well.  My favorite section of the store is always the clearance section, well that’s where I start, and I can most times find a shoe I like for a great deal.  But my absolute favorite pair of shoes I’ve gotten from DSW are a pair of Steve Madden nude flats that I’ve worn out like crazy and probably need another pair ASAP.  I’ve also always had the DSW Rewards card because the you get $10 for every 1500 points you earn deal, free shipping on orders over $35, advance news of sales, and birthday certificates, those things sealed the deal for me.  Not to mention, the membership is free and it’s not like getting a credit card or anything, it’s just a rewards program.

    Your outfit is so cute! Love DSW– I would either get another pair of cute boots or booties (I need a cute pair of riding boots!), or a pair of cute heels… they have too much that I love. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

    So hard to pick just one pair of shoes from DSW, but since it’s so hard to find a good pair of riding boots, I would pick Ilaz boot by naturalizer.
