Tightwad Tuesday: Stuart Weitzman Hiup Over the Knee Suede Boots at a Bargain

Kitty cats, to the left we have Stuart Weitzman’s saucy Hiup Over the Knee Suede Boots; to the right we have Alloy’s beautiful Brigitte Boot.

Though the blissful Brigitte is constructed out of faux suede, and features a 23” shaft and 4 ½” covered wedge, in comparison to the real suede making up the Weitzman wonder, not to mention the 26” shaft and 3” covered wedge; for the enticing asking price of just $56.90, as opposed to the $798.00 price tag of the original, they are every bit as magnificent for the budget babe’s fall wardrobe – and retain the ability to fold up or down should you decide that you’re not in the mood for an over the knee style!

Which role have you decided to undertake on this terrific Tuesday, kittens? Tightwad or spendthrift?


Fashionably yours!

Chandra H said...

I'mma gonna go with the Alloy... sheesh, what a difference in price, and I think those are just as cute if not cuter! look at the little buckle :)

$56? That's an awesome steal! Where do you find these things??? You need to write a book, I swear.

Melanie's Randomness said...

I had to scroll back up to do a double take because they look so much alike!! Yup going for the cheaper one & writing down that brand. These are beautiful for hte fall!!

Over the knee boots.. they have a soft spot with me... I really can't choose on this one because I like the SW pair more...

Joanne said...

I love tall boots, and I'd go for the Alloy here. They look a bit less fitted to the leg, and so maybe have a little more room to tuck skinny jeans into?

Diane said...

leave it to me to love the pair that costs $798!

Not really a fan of this look- at least not for me! But I do see the appeal of this look for less! :)

janettaylor said...

Mhmmmm...I love suede shoes. A LOT! :)

Sarah said...

They look almost alike! But I'm going with the Alloy, I'm not paying $798 for a pair of shoes!

AH said...

Sara Lynn said...

I would go for Alloy! I love them and that buckle is so cute!

Dude I am scared of the dark still too! I sllep with all the lights on and with Louie and my cats when I am alone at night. :P

Islandia Lane said...

gosh though, having a boot of real leather makes all the difference in the world. I'm swooning for the SW myself!

Sootjeelina said...

I almost choked in my water seeing the Stuart Weitzman price, so much! And then I almost choked again seeing the other price!
But both of the boots are lovely, tought they're very high!

I love OTK boots but none of them I have.
Both of them look great- for the meantime, I will go for Alloy, it's not too heavy on my pocket.

Grace said...

Hmm, I'm not crazy about the buckle on the Alloy ones. So even if their is a crazy price difference, I would prefer the Stuart Weitzman.

Sherin said...

I love the Alloy ones. The buckle on them makes them look so much better.

I like the fitted look of the Stuart Weitzman, but for $56.90 I'm going with Alloy!

Rick said...

Wasn't sure if over the knee boots would make it another season, but they are alive and "kicking" I see :)
great choices, Erika! hope you are enjoying your week!

Ugghhhh, Erika, you just reminded me I need to start preparing for fall. I am so sad for the onslaught of cold weather!

Naina said...

well I am bias b/c I have a pair of Stuart Weitzman over the knee all leather boots from this past season and they are the best thing I bought all year! Love them with leggings and skinny jeans.

J. said...

For that price, I'll take Alloy! Although I hear SW's are very comfy...

Maiah said...

It's all about the High-Lo theory. Im all for the 56.90 pricetag on the Alloy boots - great find!

E said...

I couldn't tell the two apart if I tried my damnedest. Genius find, as usual.

Nubiasnonsense said...

The Alloy are really cute.. I would def get them

Toutou Ly said...

I think this one's the only one so far that I've commented on Tightwad Tuesdays that I like the bargain way better than the other one! Good one, girl!

fashion junkie said...

As much as I love this 1st pair, the Alloy boots are amazing for the price! I always shop at Alloy.com and always find great deals! I love it.

kirstyb said...

love the 2nd pair xxxx

SabinePsynopsis said...

Oh Erika, what a great find! I've been wrecking my brain about over-the-knee boots forever. I thought I decided against them, but for $57.-.... VERY TEMPTING!

Wrecked Stellar said...

Hi hon! I could never afford the Weitzmans but I prefer them- pretty much because I'm not big into buckles so the buckle on the Alloy boots are throwing me off! xo, mel

beckyxoxo said...

Alloy for me ! So cool and the prices are just so different . Wow .

Audrey Allure said...

Love the Alloy ones!

Leah said...

I can settle for the faux because I don't really wear OTK boots here in Manila. I do love the style of this boots. :-)

The Backseat Stylers said...
