Friday Shoe Haiku — Splurge v. Steal
Can you tell the diff?
For sure at the register.
I'll take the cheapie.
Shoe n' Tell: My eagle-eyed friend spotted these strappy "Pilar" wedges on Target.com and told me I needed the pink pair. How well she knows me. Several times I'd nearly purchased a more expensive Dolce Vita version (yes, in pink), but I just couldn't pull the trigger. They were pricey, reviews said sizing was tricky. Too iffy of a purchase for that much money.
OK, so the top photo is from Saks and the real Dolce Vita "Pela" wedges. Sticker price: $170.
The bottom photo is Mossimo's non-leather version. Yeah, it costs $30. Guess which pair I'm gonna get.
