Thrifty Thursday: Christian Louboutin Bow-T Dorcet Pumps for Pennies

My loves, to your left you will find Christian Louboutin’s blissful Bow-T Dorcet Pumps (formerly sold at Barney’s) – the very same sassy slippers which have been seen upon the tootsies of Sarah Jessica Parker; to the right you will find Paris Hilton’s Suarey Pump.

Though Paris’ pleasing pumps are a paler pink shade, and feature a pink sole as opposed to the red velvet cupcake colored bottom of Louboutin’s lovelies; for a mere $59.95, in comparison to the $895.00 price tag of the luscious Louboutin’s, they are just as essential to the dazzling debutante at heart’s burgeoning shoe collection. Plus, for their scanty price, you’ll have enough money left over to splurge on all five colors – pink, ivory, blue, black, and grey!

Who are you channeling today, darlings…the thrifty temptress or the sassy big spender?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Barney’s and DSW for the pictures.

I like the Paris ones! CL shoes are always so overpriced for the materials used. xo

Jamie said...

Ooh!! I love both!!

Sarah said...

I would take the Paris Hilton shoes. I love that shade of pink a little bit more than the Louboutin's, but I'd probably go for the Louboutin's when I get some more money

Oana Roxana said...

That's weird.I never thought I woud choose Paris instead of Louboutin,but never say never.Is not only the price,is the color. I like that cute pink.Another point for Paris. :)

Dancing Branflake said...

I didn't even know she had a shoe line! I like hers so much. I must admit, though, that the red sole would be great to one day have.

Valerie said...

What a great budget version! I think I'd go with the Paris Hilton shoe on this one.

i always applaud an impressive replication, and this is no exception.

bravo, paris!

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

What a beautiful shoe for a fab event! I do like the deeper pink of the Loubs though.

Theresa said...

These shoes look absolutely delicious! I do prefer the lighter shade of pink though, but that ruby red soul of Louboutins are always just so enticing!

Leah said...

I would have wanted to choose the red soles but since it's just made of ordinary material, I would not splurge on this style. It'll be Paris Hilton for me. xoxo

Leia said...

I think Ms Hilton's version are a more wearable shade!

Jules said...

While I’d love to have those Louboutin’s, the Paris Hilton version would work just fine for my taste. The pale pink shade is really pretty. I think this would look cute with a black dress and make the shoes a standout. I just went on the site and the blue pair is really pretty too!

AMK said...

Thanks for the nice comment!
I more like the Paris Hilton shoes and it looks like you REALLY know a lot about this..! I followed! :)):D

Couture Carrie said...

Wow, E! You are really a pro at this!

I want the Paris Hilton ones in a bunch of colors! I love her shoes because she carries size 11 since she is one!

xoxox,

Tights Lover said...

Goodness, I love the Louboutins, but the Paris Hilton does look like a nice shoe for the price!

Sandy a la Mode said...

both of these shoes are fabulous!! but of course, i'd go for the cheaper one b/c they are soo similar!

Alicia said...

oh i love the light pink paris ones! although i've been wanting hot pink heels for sometime now. must start saving!

Joanne said...

Definitely the Hilton shoe. I actually like the bow on top better on that shoe, it's a little more sleek.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

I'm obsessed with Louboutins. That's totally my pic! SO PRETTY!

Josie said...

I suppose Paris gets a point here; however, nothing will ever compare to my love of Louboutins.

Jenny said...

As much as I love the red sole on the CL shoes, I would definitely have to say I would go with Paris's shoes. I even like that shade of pink better!

With my teacher's salary I'm definitely having to go thrifty. I love the fact that fashion can be accessible - and the most interesting things do actually come from fashionistas that create... and don't buy it all ready! Vive la créativité!

Pixie Drive-In said...

I didn't know Paris has shoe line. I'm not generally a fan of her's, I'm surprised to say I actually like these!

Jammer said...

High five for Paris! Love her version :)

The Blonde Duck said...

Just b/c of the name, I can't go with the Paris ones.

Jen said...

i'm definitely going to have to go with paris hilton's version of the gorgeous pink shoe :)

K said...

I actually like the Paris Hiltons better. Just a wee bit cuter.

Sootjeelina said...

That's so funny, they're almost the same! But for the diffrence in price, I'd be buying the Paris Hilton ones.
BTW, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, I really appreciate it :D

xoxo Sootjeelina <3

WeShop said...

These look almost identical - a brilliant find! Thanks. xx

Maddy said...

I prefer the pink of the Louboutins! The Paris Hilton color looks to much like Pepto Bismol to me :o/ They are practically identical though! Another fab find!

BTW- It does look like tea bag wallpaper, but I don't know for certain. I did love the decor though! Very cozy and since we were the first ones there (the baptism was early), I was able to take pictures of the entire place uninterrupted!

Luana said...

For the price I'd say Paris Hilton, but I'm not too crazy about the shade! Though I suppose if I really tried to come up with an outfit I wouldn't mind.

Anna Jane said...

Wow, I didnt know Paris' shoes were quite so gorgeous! I like how she's created an affordable version of this Louboutin pump. Seeing as I prefer the paler pink colour, I'm voting Paris all the way!

ellie said...

I would definitely go for Paris' version. I like her perfume.

Shop N' Chomp said...

Loubies HANDS DOWN!!

Rachel {Inspiration in Italy} said...

Erika, this just may be my all time favourite Thrifty Thursday EVER! I'm in love with both of these heels, and would totally be willing to forego the gorgeous Christian Loutoutins for a nearly eaqually stunning pari of Paris Hilton's. WOW, and what a price difference! I adore these pink shoes!

xoxo
Rachel

nookie said...

Ohh well, I like Louboutin's better, because of the bow:)

AH said...

nothing could make me say no to the louboutins, not even the fact that i don't have that much money to spend on shoes...

Margaux. said...

I think they're both cute! I like the Louboutins a little more, but the difference isn't worth the price.

Grace said...

I like the Louboutins more, but for the price point, I'd get the Paris Hilton ones.

sharonlei said...

Both heels are gorg!! :)

xx Love & Aloha

Hope said...

I actually like the CL ones better, if only I could afford it! Lol ;)

Cindy Whitehead said...

Pink is so fun - but i like the louboutins best (-:

Nubiasnonsense said...

I like the Paris ones... I love Louboutins but the price is insane

Clare said...

Oh wow! So paris isn't worthless after all!!! But I do like the color of the CL ones better :(

E said...

No no no! It can't be! I. Must. Not. Like. Something. Spawned. By. Paris. Hilton....

Aury said...

GREAT choices ma cherie. I may actually get those hiltons!

beckyxoxo said...

Wow they really look a like ! I love Louboutin but they're so expensive . Haha .

CC said...

The PH version is so pretty! I actually prefer it to the Louboutins. :)
Xx

Miss Caitlin S. said...

They are both pretty cute and I think I would typically cheap out butI don't like supporting Paris Hilton so Louboutins it is! :)

Sherin said...

I definitely prefer the Louboutins. They are so pretty and I defintiely prefer the colour.

janettaylor said...

I love them all! :)

COCAMIA said...

I adore both pairs! So so pretty!!!

michelle_ said...

Sara Bentley said...

I sometimes hate to admit this but I'm a Louboutin gal, through and through. Not that I'm always in high heels, mind you -- in fact that occasion is rare and far between -- but when I am... what can I say? :)

Sara Lynn said...

I neve fail to be amazed by your ability to find such cute cheap alternatives to awesome clothing! I would go for Paris, they are just as sweet and I think the lighter color makes them a little more versitile. You could wear them to a club or a wedding.

Hey did you get Rooney's new CD yet? They tweeted that you can get it at Target for $8 this week. My debt card is MIA but as soon as i find I am going to get it. I think you are the only other person who is as crazy about them as I am lol :)

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

OOOh, yes please!! Oh I have to choose?? Well, since the first pair costs the same as two plane tickets home for Christmas, I think I'll go with the PH. They really are lovely.

And I completely agree with you on diffusion lines. Target is Target; dresses need to be affordable.

Rachel said...

I love the pink of the Christian Louboutins so I'm gonna have to splurge this time! :)

ediot said...

i dont think i would be wearing either of these- but the one i like the most is the louboutins-theyre the brightest colourwise-

and berlin WAS SOOOOOOooooo good!

Rick said...

somehow I never thought Paris Hilton and Thrift could go togther, but life is indeed full of new twists :)

nice job with these finds, as always, Erika! have a great weekend.

Sarah from 20somethingcupcakes said...

I don't know if I could bring myself to wear any shoe by Paris Hilton - ha! But, a good match. Have a great weekend! xxSAS

Iva said...

I think they are both super cute!! :) LOL can I have both ? ;) Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!

Style, via TIa said...

This is an awesome cheaper version! I may have to get these!

alexandra kulikova said...

i thimk PH version is very cute :p hihi
but if you want to stay classic your choice will be L <3 hihih

J. said...

As much as I hate to pad her already bulging purse, I'll be giving Ms. Hilton my money! In grey and pink...I need them!

Winnie said...

Wow, what a close match!

celine said...

Great find!! I actually love those Paris Hilton pumps...

The Fashion Suggestion said...

Gotta love the Louboutin coz of the hot pink color. Paris' is pink but not hot pink enough like Louboutin’s there.

Plus, I'd give anything to have those red soles.
