Tashkent by Cheyenne (Sample Sale in NYC!)

I was browsing Bluefly (use code: "89DMQZ2" for additional 10% off or "B9A2MDN" to get $30 off $150 or more.) lately and saw these shoes from Tashkent by Cheyenne, which is also being sold on ShopBop, Piperlime, RevolveClothing, and It was total love-at-first-sight!!! So many adjectives are flooding my mind right now...futuristic, fashion-forward, fun, funky, feminine, fierce, flirty, firm, formidable, etc... Don't you think so too? I am soooo lusting over these shoes now.

And being the frugal shopper I am, I found out that Tashkent is having a sample sale in NYC on April 17th to 19th! Shoes will be priced between $10-$150!!! Well, that's great for NYC shoppers, but what about me? >_<~

Read about Tashkent by Cheyenne's origins after the jump:

(Taken from
Soft and hard elements come together in Tashkent by cheyenne.

The name Tashkent was the birthplace of her father’s mother. A place Cheyenne heard about only in stories. The word Tashkent embodies the memory of her grandmothers almond shaped eyes and the coarse beauty of her life.

Conceived in 2005, the Tashkent by cheyenne collection debuted for the Winter 2006 season.
Tashkent by cheyenne brings traditional handmade Italian craftsmanship together with a fresh aesthetic. Luxury materials such as soft leathers and suedes, furs and various skins blend with metal adornments to create a delicate but raw feel.Fascinated by the rich and intricate history of footwear, she enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Technology’s shoe construction program. Cheyenne’s interest then led her to expand her knowledge of the history of footwear. In 2002, Cheyenne opened a fine ladies vintage shoe store, The Shoe Shack in Sag Harbor, NY.

Cheyenne worked in the footwear industry as an assistant designer and archivist for Delman, one of the oldest and most prestigious shoe companies in New York. Building upon the experience and knowledge she gained, Cheyenne launched a line of her own.
Tashkent by cheyenne is in its 5th Season and growing. Cheyenne travels to Italy regularly but lives in Brooklyn, NY.
