DSW Shoe Hookup Giveaway


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.

  1. I’ve got my eye on London Rebel’s Trent Bootie! I saw them in store last week and can’t get them out of my mind!

  2. If I won the DSW giveaway I’d try to find a comfortable pair of pewter flats. That’s all I want right now.

  3. I feel like it is asking way too much to narrow it down to one shoe, haha. I do need a good pair of flat, black boots though :)

  4. Hi Sandy

    Thanks for hosting this contents! I have my fingers crossed so I can get a pair of tan knee length boots :)

  5. Great giveaway! I know that boots would be more pratical for this time of year, but I’m a sucker for sparkly/shiny things (especially around the Holidays). Loving the Steve Madden Ireney Flats in Gold!

  6. I’d put my gift card towards the Sorel Caribou cold weather boots I’ve had my eye on for so long-they’d be perfect for these winter storms!

  7. If I won the giveaway, I put it along with my saved up DSW rewards certificates and splurge on a pair of black leather riding boots!

  8. Nine West Elise Leather Pump or the DV by Dolce Vita Celvin Bootie or Crown Vintage Rugged Boot! I can keep on going, my Wish List is full! Thanks for the opportunity!

  9. I need a new pair of black riding boots. I’m thinking about maybe the Conrad riding boot from GC shoes.


  10. I have been eyeing Enzo Angiolini Tonell platform pump ,they gave been on my wish list would love to have them. In my closet

  11. I really like the boots you’re modeling – the Coconuts Britain Riding Boots [: The Coconuts Canda Riding Boots are also lovely.

  12. I ♥ DSW and I’m glad I found your blog. I love that it’s so diverse and not boring. I have been wanting the oh so expensive b.o.c spana boot… so I hope I win the $50 gift card to lower it’s hefty price tag of $139. :)

  13. Oh this is AAA-mazing, thank you!! I adore the Audrey Brook Talty Riding boots, but I would LOVE to buy my little man a pair of cute sneakers too! (He usually wins) lol)

  14. I would love to have the Luichiny Turn Two Riding Boot. LOVE THEM!!
    Thanks for being a part of this amazing giveaway!! Happy Holidays!!

  15. 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!
