Do you have Louboutin tastes, but Payless Shoes pockets?
Peep Toe Shoes' warehouse sale events are the apex of the shoe shopping calendar. The stuff of legend for those Imelda Marcos types who like me, have Louboutin tastes, but Payless Shoes pockets.

Shoes, Peep Toe, Warehouse Sale, Bargain
Girly girls love Peep Toe Shoes

Held twice or three times per year, over three days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday), not only do you get to stand around in a huge warehouse full of nothing but shoes (I literally felt like I'd died and gone to shoe heaven), but you also get to snap up said shoes for up to 75% less than their usual retail price. Bargain. An added bonus is that the sale also features bags and accessories, so it's a real one-stop Peep Toe shop.

Now, before you shoe lovers out there start salivating into your keyboards at the thought of all that purple-soled loveliness, I should point out that it's not all glitz and glamour.

Firstly, it's a warehouse sale, so its ummm, in a warehouse. A cavernous, dusty, dimly lit unit in the back of Bourke literally: Bourke Road, Alexandria. They make an effort to pretty it up with some mirrors and a few seats, but as they say, you can't put lipstick on a pig (well you can, but it will just look like a pig in lipstick).

Yep, it's a big dusty warehouse

Secondly, the queues are horrendous. Think the release of the latest iPhone, plus women, heels and glitter. Parking is doubly horrendous (and public transport is almost out of the question), and if you get it wrong, you'll end up with a ticket. I love shoes, but I love saving money more, so getting a ticket whilst buying bargain shoes just doesn't make "chiconomic" sense.

The queues @ the Peep Toe Shoes warehouse sale are not for the faint-hearted

The most obvious downside (one you can probably guess from the aforementioned queues and parking issues) though, is that with deals as good as this, shoe fans flock from far and wide to get their fill. These sales get busy. With a capital "please don't elbow me in the ribs", so be prepared for some less than ladylike behaviour from your fellow shoppers.

The best way to find out about the sales is to either subscribe to Peep Toe's newsletter via their website, or follow them on facebook. Details of the sales are normally released around two weeks in advance.

Go forth and buy shoes.

It does - you've just got to get there early. Try going on the Friday, to get the good stuff before it goes!
