Sunday Steals: Christian Louboutin Bridget Strass Pumps for Pennies

My loves, to the left we have Christian Louboutin’s blinged out Bridget Strass Pumps – the very same ones seen gracing not only the tootsies of Carrie Bradshaw (aka Sarah Jessica Parker) in Sex and the City 2, but Olivia Palermo, Scarlett Johansson, and Leelee Sobieski, as well (LIKE); to the right we have Dollhouse’s Tano Sandal (TRY).

(WHY?) Though the tempting Tano lacks the strass heel seen in all of its blazing glory upon the Louboutin lovely; for the low price of $59.95, in comparison to the $3,325.00 price tag of its couture cousin, it is just as glamorous, and leaves room to splurge in other areas of your fashion-forward existence!

Is today the day for you to please the big spender within; or will you play it cool and be thrifty?


Fashionably yours!

Well since I'd only be wearing those heels for about an hour tops, $59.95 sounds pretty good to me!

Melissa Blake said...

Those are great...they make me want to go to a 1970s disco party! :)

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

The Louboutins for sure!

Winnie said...

I actually prefer the dollhouse version!

K8 said...

I'm not the biggest Louboutin fan, but I do like the floral part of the shoe...I could do without the flash though.

$3325?!?!?! Insane!!! To be honest, both pairs look pretty tacky to me... the dollhouse ones more so unfortunately. But the red sole definitely doesnt justify the $3000 difference to me.

Rachel said...

Both versions look great, but I can't resist a pair of Louboutins! I'll have to be a big spender this time.

Dancing Branflake said...

the Dollhouse ones are so awesome! I can't believe they are only $60. Officially now lusting!

ana said...

I will have to spend on the Louboutins... they are so beautiful!!!

Grace said...

Wow, Dollhouse has a lot of recreations! As lust-worthy as Louboutins are, I think I'd go for the Dollhouse, because I don't see any difference.

Leia said...

I think I would splurge on the Loubs!

Sarah said...

definitely the dollhouse shoes, they're much less flashy than the Louboutin's.

AMK said...

I like the doll hpuse much better.

la petite fashionista said...

wow! veryyyyy similar; great find! I do like the crystal studdedd heels in the louboutin pair though!

The Favour Shoppe said...

Yup, I would hafta say Dollhouse! I actually like them better :)

AH said...

the dollhouse ones are cute, but i'd still go for the louboutins!

michelle_ said...

okay im totally aammaazzzeedd at this steal !
it looks just almost like it !!

Sherin said...

They're both gorgeous! I love the Louboutins. The heel on it is amazing.

Andhari said...

I think if I wanna buy a pair of super expensive shoes, I'll make sure the design is classic and can be worn all the time. Like Louboutin black pumps, definitely not this one. It won't stay in trend. So dollhouse is a smart choice :)

chaoskontrolowany said...

Looks nice!

Jen said...

Ah, now the Dollhouse version are very good... but those red soles! I simply cannot resist! :)

Leah said...

Lovely and fabulous... you know that I'm not a shoe addict so I'd rather spend the extra moolah for bags and get the Dollhouse version instead. Happy Sunday Erika! xoxo

Cafe Pasadena said...

When I 1st read the top of this post, I read it as Pumps for Penises, and, Dollhouse as Doghouse!

Well, I was up late last nite!!

ellie said...

Thank God, for Dollhouse!

Wow, so expensive. So pretty though.

Clare said...

Oh my gosh! I love this shoe. LOVE it!!! And those Dollhouse ones are a perfect replica

Dessinatrice said...

Great find, you are absolutely amazing at this, thanks so much!

I haven't thought of lee lee in ages..wow, dollhouse did an amazing job on this ripoff.

Pixie Drive-In said...

So, it is one of my dreams to one day own a pair of Louboutin shoes! Sigh...the day I buy them for myself will be one of the best days ever!

OceanDreams said...

I actually really like the Dollhouse version, beautiful heels!

Josie said...

If I had the means, I would DEFINITELY go for the Louboutins... Love them!

Sarah @ Pandora's Box said...

They're so similar! I'd have to go with the loubs on this one... no one can beat that red soul.. and the 6 inch heel! swoon!

Nikki said...

G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S shoes!:D

Mademoiselle ♥♥ said...

Thats tough! They are both gorgeous.. I would maybe go for the dollhouse since I would oly wear them once or twice.. or maybe hmm :D

xx

Joanne Faith said...

I can't believe how much of an exact match they are! Although no doubt about it I'd play it thrifty, 3 grand on a pair of shoes is not me (yet)

SabinePsynopsis said...

This is such a close copy, it's nearly a bit cheeky. But who can afford $3,325?? Since it's not a shoe I'd wear very often it would have to be the thrifty version for me.
Wishing you a lovely start to the week, Erika. xoxo

Couture Carrie said...

OMG what an amazing replica!

Gorgeous find, darling E!

xoxox,

Krystal said...

I think dollhouse is a smart choice!

Audrey Allure said...

Damn, so expensive for the Louboutin's, but the Dollhouse one does look so similar!

cellulite cream said...

I'd go for the Dollhouse... no doubt!

Sara Bentley said...

Wow, these look almost identical -- I had to do a double take to make sure the same photo wasn't doubled by accident! Great job at finding this! But, I'm ashamed to ask... why, oh, why are the Louboutins so expensive!?!!?!?

Sara Lynn said...

omg omg those shoes rock! I would totally take the dollhouse, they are sooooo cool! I want I want!

Erica if you get a carousel I am soooo friggin' moving in! I love love love them, and ferris wheels. Whenever we go to an amusement park, I gotta go on one! :)

Keith said...

I actually like the Dollhouse ones better. I hope you had a fantastic weekend. Take care. Enjoy the week ahead.

Princess Liberty said...

I love the dollhouse !

Imogen said...

I like the Dollhouse ones better because of the colour but they are so very similar. I can't believe how similar they are for such a huge price different.

Cindy Whitehead said...

There is just something about a louboutin shoe and that red sole... (-:

Maddy said...

I love Louboutins, but I wouldn't be caught dead in these shoes! Not my style at all :) But you did find an awesome thrifty option!

Midnight Cowgirl said...

Love those shoes! Thanks for the Dollhouse find!

Ash Fox said...

fab knockoff. it's amazing how they copy these things too a t. thank you for your delicious compliments! made my day!

xoooo

johanna said...

addicted to them.
btw thank you so much for your sweet comment. It's so nice of you. You're so cute.

Keep following
Love, johanna

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

OH wow! Those loubies are very nicce.
I would have to say, neither in this case. While the shoes are spectacular and fun, I def can't afford the expensive pair, and I have not been that impressed with my dollhouse purchases.

SogniSorrisi said...

Great find!

Valerie said...

Wow, the price difference on these is incredible! I'd definitely have to be thrifty since I love the Dollhouse version too.

xo
Valerie

Taj Acosta said...

Gorgeous! I love the dollhouse version too! xoxo

Mara said...

wow I can't believe how alike these look!!

Rick said...

Erika,
you still amaze me by how you find such stylishly similar designs. great job! proof one can be stunning while on a budget :)
Rick

Meream said...

You have awesome style detective skills. If there is such a thing. Haha

I'd go cheap because the gold part looks a tad hard on the Loubs :)

Savvy Gal said...

i would prob go with the less expensive version b/c it is not a classic design.

Nina said...

The Dollhouse version rocks EXACTLY like the Louboutins!

madeleine said...

ohmygod. You know how much i love shoesiesss! This is an amazing find! because the alternatives to the louboutin's are just as fabulous looking! ahhh!!!!

stay classy lady,
madeleine

Miss Caitlin S. said...

I wish I could say CL but I believe Dollhouse will have to do unless I want to starve for the next 6 months.

janettaylor said...

WOW! Hiper copy, but I like them. :)

Style with Benefits said...

What the hey! I can't believe you found the dollhouse pair. That's insane. I'd def. choose to 'play it cool and be thrifty.' :)

xo, becs

Join the Gossip said...

Those are really similar, the real ones just sparkle more. Unless you are a shoe fanatic, you prob wouldn't notice the cheaper pair wasn't real!

Spicy Candy said...

OMG! you are amazing at finding almost identical items for less! this are very sexy, love the pattern and the gold!

xoxo

J. said...

I'd go for the Dollhouse! I think I might really need these...

Christian Louboutin is very successful in the area of Louboutin Shoes
. The Christian Louboutin Pumps
which are designed by him are so special. Looking at the gorgeous Christian Louboutin Boots
, I smiled. Since then, Christian Louboutin Sandals
became a best friend of mine.
