I don't know if this counts as a tip, but I just went to the Dolce Vita sample sale and was very pleased. They have a good selection of shoes in all sizes from 6-10 for $25 or $35 (depending on the style.) Flipflops are $5. Boots are $75, including the flat black boot that I almost bought this winter for $225ish. There are also racks of Dolce Vita clothing in the $30-$75 range. [Racked Inbox]
