Splurge vs. Steal


Shoe showdowns! Budgeting fashion to get what you want.

I've been dreaming about these Chloé Crackle Triple Straps (top right) for a few years, and recently the same shameless beckoning began when I spotted the Isabel Marant Dicker boots (bottom right). But considering the Chloé pumps have vanished from planet earth and I'm not entirely convinced at the hardcore notion of dropping $600 on my inner yeehaw for some cutoff westerns, I compromised.
After a lot, and I mean a lot of researching, I narrowed it down to these strikingly similar Michael Antonio Lakin heels (also here in black) and Ash Jalouse booties (also here in taupe).
I definitely would've preferred the MA pumps without the gold-dipped sequin embellishment, but I'll survive, because let's face it, these kindred soles saved me about a thousand bucks.

In a way, I actually prefer the sparkle-tipped ones!
