Thrifty Thursday: Rag & Bone Sahara Open-Toe Wedges for Less

My loves, in the left corner you’ll spot Rag & Bone’s stunning Sahara Open-Toe Wedges; in the right corner you’ll find Jeffrey Campbell’s fabulous Full.

Though the jaw-dropping Jeffrey Campbell’s lack the leather sole found upon the ravishing Rag & Bone’s; for just $130.00, in comparison to the $390.00 price tag of their haute couture counterpart, they are every bit as capable of becoming the frugal fashionista’s new nude necessity!

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


Fashionably yours!

Such fab shoes. But I wouldn't spend big on them..since they'd stay in my closet a lot of the time.

molly said...

definitely go for the cheaper version.

I wish I could wear open toe shoes at work. Very nice wedges. A must for this fall.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Eh, they're not my style either way.

It is so hard because the Rag and Bone ones are amazing (like them more than the JC's) but so true about the longevity! Can one really spend $400 on such trendy shoes? Something to ponder as I sip my morning tea! Love, A

Ginger said...

I'm loving the cheaper ones! I normally tend to side with the more expensive choice but as others said, the trendiness makes them an ideal shoe to be thrifty with!! And I'm still amazed by your almost identical finds!

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

Def the Jeffrey Campbell! I like the nude shade.

Melissa said...

Wow, love them both!

Emily said...

I adore both pairs, but I'm going to have to go with the jeffrey campbell ones!

Valerie said...

I have the Rag & Bone pair and I LOVE them! But the Jeffrey Campbell pair is adorable too. Maybe they're more comfy. Great find, Erika!

Dancing Branflake said...

I love them both! And I love the wedge bootie look. I don't have a shoe like it so maybe I'll have to go shopping this weekend- for the cheaper version, of course.

Couture Carrie said...

Nice find, darling!

Jamie said...

Ok, so when these Rag & bone wedges first showed up on shopbop, I thought I might DIE if I didn't get them immediately...until...I saw the price tag. But the JC version are PERFECT and SO MUCH more afforable I don't think you will need to come to my funeral after all!!

I love them both... I feel like Rag & Bone might hold up a lot longer, but I LOVE the color of the JC's - tough choice :)

Leia said...

I think I might actually prefer the JCs!

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

I think I'm going thrifty on this one. Leather sole aside, they're almost identical...not to mention gorgeous!

I love the color of the Rag and Bone wedges, but I'm a die hard Jeffrey Campbell fan, so I'll go with the JC's for sure!! :)

Sherin said...

They're both adorable shoes. I possibly couldn't choose between the two.

Tuesday said...

The cheaper version is much nicer I reckon, the colour is brilliant!

chaoskontrolowany said...

So great;)

Maddy said...

Great alternative option, but I must admit that I am not a fan of these shoes . They kind of look like edgy grandma shoes :o/ But what do I know?! I'm not much of a fashionista anyways!

Midnight Cowgirl said...

They look the same! Wow what a difference the price makes.. I'm going to have to go with the $130 pair. These wedges are fabulous by the way.

These have such a geriatric quality to them, but in a good way! I kind of love them!

Sarah @ Pandora's Box said...

Gahhh! I love BOTH of these! I actually like the Jeffrey Campbell pair more I think. The pink color is too cute!

They are practically identical, so I would go the thrifty route. I'd love to see these shoes in an outfit.
