Sale Bargain Day - shop my pick of the online sales

I thought a sales roundup was in order - so I've had a really REALLY good look about and am happy to bring you the very best of what's out there. Kicking things off are these gorgeously versatile nude Ted Baker Fiachu Gladiator sandals which I spotted in the AllSole Sale reduced from £100 to just £40. Round toed flat gladiator sandal in pale nude leather with a branded metal plaque, a branded metal toe cap and a branded metal zip pull on the back counter.

Over in the Clarks Sale I found Turin Dreaming which is reduced from £49.99 to £34.99. My favourite is the khaki suede (pictured) however these do also come in both black high shine leather and also oxblood leather too. A classy transitional style, this women's bootie sandal is sleek and sexy in soft khaki suede. On-trend and smart, the peep-toe style fastens with a simple wraparound strap and features a sculpted 85mm heel and Cushionsoft layers for a posture boost. Update your work looks or team with bare legs and flirty dresses for after hours. Also super cute with short shorts.

I have coveted the ASH Thelma wedge trainers for some time now, and they can be found in the Daniel Footwear Sale reduced from £160 to just £80. This stylish wedge trainer boot features buckles and strap detailing over the front of the boot and a beige wedge heel and rubber covered toe. Ash uses the highest quality beige leather to guarantee the best possible comfort. Team with a pair of leather hotpants or super skinny jeans.

If like me you adore your Nike Dunk Sky Hi's then head over to Footasylum to pick up these in a stunning magenta, black and white colourway. These trainers, originating from the initial Dunk released in the mid 1980's, are constructed from premium leather and have a padded ankle collar. Iconic Nike Swoosh to sides. If you've not yet bought a pair then grab these - reduced from £84.99 to just £39.99. Trust me, you won't regret it.

Last on today's hitlist is a gorgeous pair of heels from John Lewis which are Cara from Carvela. These are reduced from £220 to £120. Sophisticated occasion sandals from Carvela, combining the matte black of suedette uppers with a gleaming gold toned metallic trim over the toe straps, and around the buckled ankle strap.

Let me know if you can beat any of the prices in the comments - after all bigger savings mean more shoes!!!

KAREN MILLEN Gold Crystal Chain Asymmetric Sandal

Let me be completely honest here. When I am out and about shopping for shoes, or even just on a browse to look at pretty things, I never think to visit Karen Millen. Then occasionally whilst sourcing styles to feature on Shoeniverse I chance upon something like these stunning chain sandals and wonder if I'm missing a trick.

For a pair of high street heels that retail at just a smidge over £100, these are breathtakingly elegant and well made. Everything about the styling and features is well considered and of excellent quality. They are a very grown up and accomplished heel, and to be honest I don't expect to see this on the high street, or at least not at this price point. If you are looking for a classy heel that you can take care of and wear time and again you may just have found your shoe kryptonite.

Get them now if you want them as they are certain to sell out and some sizes are limited already as I write this.

MELISSA Pedro Lourenco No1 in Nude & Turquoise

After presenting his stunning Spring/Summer 2013 collection at Paris Fashion Week, Pedro Lourenco is fast becoming a formidable name in high fashion. This Pedro Laurenco and Melissa collaboration, the No. 1 in nude and turquoise, is in a class of its own. With a stylish single strap across the toes, a glossier statement strap above the ankle and a cupped high heel, this rock couture heel is beyond description.

If you've not yet tried a Melissa heel, and felt the wonders of Plastic Fantastic as I like to call them, then this might be a great inroad for you as these are on sale at Office. With a bang on trend colourway to boot, you can pick them up not for their original £120 price tag, but instead reduced to just £55 - better than a 50% discount.

I think they are rather special. And they can even get splashed by the pool and not get ruined.

I'd love to hear your own experiences of wearing Melissa shoes and if you have any tips for other readers who are maybe a little scared of wearing them too!

NIKE Purple Dunk Sky Hi Lilac Trainers - on sale at @ASOS

As you may be aware if you are a regular reader, I am not a fan of the colour purple. However, there are exceptions to every rule, and for Summer 2014 I am utterly in love with this chalky lilac shade of Nike Sky Hi's. Plus I have them in hot pink already so I already can vouch for the fact they are crazy comfortable AND extremely well made. Even better? These are on sale over at ASOS for just £51.

The best recommendation I can give for these trainers is that they just 'work'. By this I mean they flatter the legs, they look equally great with jeans or a sundress, they are basically as versatile as any other pair of trainers but with added femininity. With shorts or a mini skirt they make your legs look to go on forever but without the associated constraints of strappy high heels. You can veen comfortably run in them. They are one of my go-to styles, and for me undoubtedly the very best of the wedge trainers that I've tried.

Plus they are really cute too, right? :)

Reduced down from £85 to just over £50? Better be quick if you want to grab them to ad to your trainer collection.
