Thrifty Thursday: Badgley Mischka Randee T-Strap Sandal for a Steal

Darlings, in the left corner you’ll find Badgley Mischka’s refined Randee T-Strap Sandal; in the right corner you’ll find Bakers Footwear’s fabulous PETALS.

Though the heel of the PETALS pretty is ever so slightly higher than that of the magnificent Mischka; for a mere $59.99, as opposed to the $200.00 required to make the Mischka’s your own, they are every bit as stunning, stylish, and covetable as their haute couture counterparts. And they’re available in four saucy shades – red, gray, beige, and black evening!

What’s your stand…will you splurge, or save?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Endless and Bakers Shoes for the pictures.

Steve Madden had shoes exactly like this and I was SOOOOO sad that I didn't snatch them up when they had my size. But knowing these little $60 ones are out there makes me happy!

Emily said...

save! there is practically no difference!

Meg said...

Wow, those are so close! So I'd probably save my money and go with the cheaper one.

Little Bow Prep said...

They look so similar!

Maddy said...

These are gorgeous & practically identical!! My votes is for the Bakers one! I can't even spot the difference between the two, except for the label :)

Jammer said...

wow they look the same!! But, if I had boatloads of money I don't think I could reject Badgley :)

Melanie's Randomness said...

I'll definitely take the cheaper one because they look so close!!! They remind me of the shoes Carrie wore in SATC on her last night out with big when miranda has her baby! I like them! I'll check this out!

Valerie said...

These shoes are so pretty! These would be the perfect wedding shoes, in my opinion. I'd definitely go for the budget version.

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

Nearly identical! I love the light pink version I've seen on other blogs...so pretty!!

Leia said...

ooh... these are toooo stunning. i want!!

Shop N' Chomp said...

I really like the BM one!

Fashion Court said...

this is awesome! i have to admit, i'd gravitate towards a black version of this shoe a bit faster

CC said...

I love both the pairs! The style is so Carrie Bradshaw. There is hardly any difference and seeing as I am barely 5 feet tall, I don't really mind the extra height so I'd definitely go with the Baker's version. ;)

Taj Acosta said...

Very pretty shoes, I would def go for the save although I adore BM!! xoxo

Savvy Gal said...

Both look almost the same.

Joanne said...

I agree with the others, these are too similar to spend $$ on the more expensive. I'll go with the Petals today.

ellie said...

They are so pretty, but I'm not sure you'd catch me in either. I'm just a flip-flop girl of summer, I'm afraid.

Arushi Khosla (FabBlab) said...

Charles and Keith had something very similar in pink. LOVE, btdubs.

meg said...

They are so much alike. Go for the cheaper version. For sure.

The Blonde Duck said...

Steal!

Rachel said...

They look so similar that I think I'd have to save and go for the Bakers pair!

Natalya's Closet said...

So pretty, i love the flower details! With my budget i'd definitely go for the Bakers! XOXO, Natalya

Rachel {Inspiration in Italy} said...

WOW, they are both so incredible elegant. The Bakers shoe looks just like the Badgley! By the way Erika, thank you so much for your kind words on my Pink Summer Creation post. Your comments mean the world to me! :)

xoxoxo

AH said...

the bakers ones look great! i'll save!!

The Anthology said...

What about both? One to wear outside and one only to wear inside?

They'd be gorgeous for a wedding, wouldn't they?

SabinePsynopsis said...

What an amazing find, they look so similar! I'll definitely be thrifty on these (and take the higher heel in my stride ;-) xoxo

Sherin said...

They're both so pretty. I love the petal effect. I think I'll go for the thrifty option this week and go for the Bakers ones.

WeShop said...

Definitely save - they look identical, so why pay more? Amazing find. xx

Couture Carrie said...

I'm going to have to (theoretically, that is) splurge on this one!
That BM shoe is just too gorgeous!

Clare said...

Okay, I think I am going to buy these for real. Like for realz!!

Margaux. said...

Bakers makes great dupes

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

SAVE. Almost identical! (Although there's always that "oh, but there's the slightest difference that makes all the difference" argument.)

Actually, come to think of it, the petals could make a pretty could DIY!


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Oooh I'd go with the Baker's version because it looks the same! I do love the jersey? material of the roses on the Badgley Mischka - they felt lovely!

Pixie Drive-In said...

I will definitely take the Bakers. Both pairs are really stunning!

la petite fashionista said...

i love the dessign! the perfect counterpart to all the flowery hair pieces ive been sporting lately :)

Miss Caitlin S. said...

I think I'd go for the Badgley ones! Not too expensive and look so beautiful. Also, I don't like "Bakers Footwear" - no elegance in the name!

Tamanna A. Shaikh said...

Baker's Of course!! :)

Meream said...

Hmm I'd get married wearing either. :) Just daydreaming here...

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

These are so fab! If only I weren't so tall, sigh...well hopefully you will find some great mid-heels for me to splurge/save on! Thank you for your sweet b-day wishes this week! Hope yours has been a good one!

xo Mary Jo

nicole said...

another great thrifty post! the rosettes on these shoes reminded me of Valentino shoes. and the funny thing is, I prefer the cheaper version to the designer ones!

ediot said...

i would definitely go for the bakers version! theyre a steal-
these shoes would be gorgeous for summer! but i could never wear these myself- i suck at wearing heels- especially stilettos.
how bout you? do you wear heels a lot?
wish you a wonderful weekend
take care

xx ediot

Wow! they are such a steal. And such a pretty pair. thanks for sharing.

Cindy Whitehead said...

These would be beautiful for a wedding - and at the Bakers price how could you not? You save so much you could then spend elsewhere...

Midnight Cowgirl said...

Love those shoes from Bakers!

Oana Roxana said...

I see ...no difference.I couldn't walk with those heels,but they look cute.

Grace said...

I'd go with the Bakers; the color is a little warmer. And of course the price difference helps!

J. said...

I'm saving my $$ this week...going with Bakers! Love the grey!
