Thrifty Thursday: Giuseppe Zanotti I90107 Wedge Sandal for a Steal

Darlings, in the left corner we have Giuseppe Zanotti’s showstopping I90107 Wedge Sandal; in the right corner we have Kelsi Dagger’s jazzy Juno Wedge.

While there is a slight differentiation in heel height – the daring Dagger a mere 3 ½ inches, the glamorous Giuseppe pair a teetering 4 ½; at just $123.45, in comparison to the $705.00 price tag dangling from the gorgeous Zanotti’s, they are every bit as capable as their couture counterparts of lending an enticing Egyptian motif to your wardrobe that will make you look and feel like a goddess through and through!

So mes chéris, what are you up to today? Will your AmEx take a beating with a splurge, or will you stay safe and thrifty with a frugal buy?


Fashionably yours!

Gorgeous shoes!! These would have been perfect to wear to the concert tomorrow! They're practically identical, so I would def go for the steal. Plus, I'm terrible at taking care of my shoes, so I don't usually splurge on them.

Café Bellini said...

Wow they look so similar... I'd go with the Dagger pair, just because the heels aren't as high!

Sarah said...

Definitely the Kelsi Dagger because the heel isn't as high, and I'm not going to pay $705.00 for a pair of shoes.

Summer {Bisfor...} said...

you are good! i am in love, esp with the new and improved price tag.

Grace said...

I'd go with the Kelsi Daggers for sure! Besides, for me, a shorter heel is a bonus!

The Favour Shoppe said...

I agree with Cafe Bellini, I would have to go with the Dagger because of the height, but they look so much alike!

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

Again, great post! I love the Daggers! I like high heels, but I'm already quite tall, so I appreciate heels that are not 4 inches and over.

Joanne said...

No teetering for me ... I'll opt for the Daggers and walk comfortably!

SogniSorrisi said...

You always have the best finds. Practically identical!!

la petite fashionista said...

this is one beautiful shoe!

what i like about it is that it looks like I could actually wear it to work too with the wedge

FASHION SNAG said...

Zanotti all the way, but I would try to wait for a sale. The quality is too good! x

Jammer said...

They look almost the same! While I do love myself some height, I think I'll go with the save look :)

Tamanna A. Shaikh said...

Oooh!! I love those wedges!! So perfect for dressy or casual both!! I'd go for Zanotti!

Naina said...

In this situation I would go for the Daggers. They both look so similar so teh cheaper ones win!

Valerie said...

Erika, those sandals are to die for! I've been eyeing the Kelsi Dagger pair in gray for a while (I actually posted them on my blog a few months ago). I really think I like them more than the Giuseppe Zanotti pair.

Leia said...

Wow, the lookalike is almost a perfect replica! The original looks more sleek and refined though, so maybe I'll splurge today ;)

Sara Lynn said...

I loved that you posted a sweet shoes deal right after I confessed my love for shoes in my post today! I am already taller, so I would go for the cheaper ones. You find the cutest shoes!

ellie said...

something i've always wanted.

anhesty said...

Nadalyn Margaret said...

What a steal! Great find!! Xoxo

AH said...

i'd definitely go for the kelsi dagger ones, they look great, and are probably more comfortable...

this free bird said...

Kelsi Dagger all the way!! And why not? They are easily just as cute and completely fantastic!! So happy I found YOU today. Woohoooo!

Carrie :)

Kristin said...

I'm a Bargain Betty today!

sharonlei said...

The higher the heel the better.. but the Kelsi Dagger ones are just as awesome as the Zanotti's. :)

xx Love & Aloha

S.Elisabeth said...

This is such a perfect find! I love the cheaper version even more!

Melissa Blake said...

Those are gorgeous, Erika! xoxo

WeShop said...

Toutou Ly said...

To be honest, I'm all for GZ's pair here. They're extremely identical, but if you look closely, the GZ pair has more of a platform than the Dagger ones. So, it really depends on preferences. I like the GZ's just for that platform; without it, I feel like my feet will hurt more. Don't get me wrong, both are great because they're so identical so there's nothing wrong with the Dagger pair, but I thought I'd just put my 2 cents in. :]

Maria at Bachman's Sparrow said...

Wow! That is SPOT on. Nice find!

xoxo Maria

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

WHHHAAAAT?! They LITERALLY look the EXACT SAME. (Okay, maybe not "literally" and "exact" but pretty darn close)

Definitely going for the thrifty version - it's 6 times cheaper! (Okay, bad math. Blame summer time!)

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Emily said...

Clare said...

Woah these actually look mildly comfortable! sweeeet!!!

The Backseat Stylers said...

Damn, that's close! I'm a huge fan of Giuseppe Zanotti, but with such a big price difference...

I'd take the one on the left - G. It's definitely a stunner! :)

Style Eyes said...

Wow they look so similar, I would definitely would buy the cheaper ones.

B a la Moda said...

I like the second pair better. How do you do it so I always like the cheapest better? It doesn´t happen in the stores!

Josie said...

I'm all over the higher heel, but this price is too hard to pass up!

Aury said...

Those Giuseppe's are simply ravishing. If only, I was gifted in the art of walking in what would probably be painful shoes and was also a billionaire then maybe, I could own them... C'est la vie.

FashionJazz said...

Wow hun, they look soo similar!! HAPPY FRIDAY! XX

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Awesome find as always dear. I'll take Ms. Dagger's pair please!

p.s. Sigh, sweaters and autumn - you're making me miss seasons! Glad I'll be in Canada for a bit in October!

Sootjeelina said...

The rings are such a cute add to the shoe, but they're very high!
Btw, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog, I really appreciate it :D

xoxo Sootjeelina <3

Audrey Allure said...

They're both gorgeous!

chaoskontrolowany said...

Love it!

Purses Pastries Etc... said...

Wow! This option saves over $500 AND the heel is 1"shorter (always good for me) Number 2 is the winner in my book this time around!! :)

AnaVar said...

Agree with those who are for Dagger! The heel isn't as high, and I'm not going to pay $705.00 for a pair of shoes too. I believe no one will notice the difference...

Cindy Whitehead said...

I'd go with the Kelsi - so close you can't even tell the small differences!

Sherin said...

I love the Guiseppe ones. The heel is so gorgeous! I'm a sucker for higher heels.

OneCraftyFox said...

Fabulous shoes!!

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

Oh these are fabulous!!!! This affordable pair definitely looks every bit as good as the Guiseppe pair and I'm going to have to find them!

Hoping you have a delicious weekend! p.s. {We will have to meet for coffee someday soon--I'm often in LA}
xoxo Mary Jo

Rachel said...

Great wedges! I'll totally save and go with the Kelsi Dagger pair!

J. said...

I'll be thrifty this time and go for the Daggers! Mmmm...I kinda love them!
