OK, these are totally not sexy at all — but one of the very first things I covered on this blog was a similar product, so for some reason I have a soft spot in my heart for what are, essentially, women’s galoshes. The idea: If you’re wearing fabulous shoes and it starts pouring, you may think, “GAH, I don’t want to get my shoes wet!” So you pull these out of your bottom office drawer (where you can keep them, because they are much smaller and more collapsible than big Wellies) and put them on over your fabulous shoes — and off you go to whatever fun event you have that evening. These babies are on sale at Hammacher Schlemmer — they were $99 but are now $49. (There’s a bunch of random stuff on sale, so poke around; while buying my husband a pillow I also got a cat toy for my MIL’s cat and a mosquito net shirt for my hubs, each for $9.99.)

Psst: if you’re in more of a “classic pump” kind of mood, M.Gemi is having their twice-yearly private sale — pumps are down to $125; flats start at $75.
