Thrifty Thursday: Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Daryl Zip Wedge Sandals for a Steal

My loves, in the left corner you’ll find Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent’s daring Daryl Zip Wedge Sandals; in the right corner you’ll spot Steve Madden’s tantalizing TRACKKS.

Though the zipper adorning the majestic Madden pair is exposed goldtone, as opposed to the hidden zipper featured on Vincent’s versatile original; for just $89.95, in comparison to the couture $375.00 price tag of the Twelfth St. treasures, they are just as covetable – and come in two tantalizing colors (black and cognac) that the frugal fashionista will find herself unable to resist!

What’s the verdict, lovelies…will you be thrifty or spend, spend, spend?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Shopbop and Steve Madden for the pictures.

I definitely prefer the Steve Madden ones. They're amazing.

Tayebug said...

Love them both, but for the similarities and the price, I am opting for the Steve Maddens for sure!

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

To be honest, I'm just not a fan of that look. But if I have to choose I'd pick Steve Madden.

Tяainwяeck Tяagedy said...

The Steve Madden shoes are lovely, but I think I'd have to splurge on Cynthia Vincent, but definitely well worth it.

A good pair of wedges can take a girl very far. :]

My heart's with the Cynthia Vincent pair - they are so sleek and pretty!

Although I like it less, the Twelfth St ones look nicer to me... the leather looks better, though I dislike the zip...

Valerie said...

They're both fabulous! But I think I prefer the steve madden pair because of the bigger buckles and exposed zipper. I'm loving zippers right now. Great pick, Erika!!
