Tightwad Tuesday: Givenchy Crisscross Wedge Sandal for a Steal

Darlings, in the left corner we have Givenchy’s chic Crisscross Wedge Sandal, the very same ones seen gracing the tootsies of glamourai Leigh Lezark; to your right you will find BCBGeneration's gorgeous Gonzalo Wedge Sandal.

While the BCBGeneration's beauty is crafted out of a blend of black lycra mesh and leather, while the jaw-dropping Givenchy’s are made solely out of leather; for a mere $98.95, in comparison to the $1,174.50 asking price of the Givenchy’s, they are every bit as capable of turning heads and inducing gasps from your many admirers as their couture cousin. Not to mention you can pick them up in three irresistible hues (black lycra mesh, silver ash shimmer metallic, and buttermilk plush napa)!

Is today the day for you to please the big spender within; or will you play it cool and be thrifty?


Fashionably yours!

While the Givenchy version is undeniably gorgeous, I am gonna go with the BCBG b/c if I had that much in my pocket to spend, it would be one of two things, a fab new handbag or a pair of Christian Louboutins!

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

I love this shoe! The twist is so unique- I bet both look great on too. :)

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Wow, I actually like the BCBG Girls version better. The draping just works a little better for me.

Sarah said...

Definitely the BCBGirls shoe. The Givenchy is gorgeous, but I'm not not paying that much for a pair I can get for under $100

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

I gotta go with the tightwad version.

FASHION SNAG said...

Once you get a Givenchy you never go back. Their shoes are so comfortable! x

hands down BCBG today!

Chic Geek (Devs) said...

I love the Givenchy version but I have to say I would go for the BCBG one. So much more affordable and gives off the same effect.

Maddy said...

I think I like the thrifty version much better!! Gosh!! You need to take me shopping with you! I can get a whole makeover on a dime ;o)

Dancing Branflake said...

Oh dear! I don't think I could ever pass up Givenchy! But, I like the fact that the cheaper version has other colors. Hmmm....this is a tough one!

Melanie's Randomness said...

I don't know why but I like how the cheaper one looks bettter.

Krystal said...

ohhh these are such pretty shoes!!

Krystal said...

ohhh these are such pretty shoes!!

Melissa said...

Wow, another uncanny comparison!

Susu Paris Chic said...

I got a pair of wedges but they broke, a strap came off, the following day. I had to take them back. Now I'm thinking more about fall and looks like my summer shall remain wedgeless. Oh well... I'm so excited about all the caramel and coffee frocks I saw yesterday here in Paris... allover the stores!

Ladyulia said...

wow!
beauiful wedges :D

ellie said...

They are way cool to see on someone else. Just not me. If I were to afford them...they'd be on a shelf somewhere. I'd never wear them. I like something I know I can hop around in at a concert or run..if the case maybe. I can definitely me crashing in them if I wore them. But they are amazing.

Rachel said...

I'm definitely going with the BCBGirls pair. They look great!

Megan said...

I like the BCBGirls pair.

v [ hobovogue ] said...

ohhhh bcbgirls. i love them. they're so good at replicating everything i want but can't have, and this is no exception... the gracefulness of this teetering high wedge is just stunning in both shoes !!

kayla marie said...

thrifty for me ;)
thanks for visiting my blog stop by any time or follow me if you like.

jen said...

I'd definitely go with the BCBGirls. It's a stunning but very trendy shoe, and most girls (if they're anything like me) will probably only wear them a few times!

Have a great day Erika!
Jen

The Favour Shoppe said...

Gotta go with the BCBGirls! So cute!

Tights Lover said...

Can you own $1,200 shoes and not be afraid to walk in them?

I love this style of shoe! They're both gorgeous, but since I have a love for BCBG shoes already, and the price is right....

jess said...

I think the BCBGirls looks better.

katielouise said...

i actually prefer the right one.. shocker!! good find

Valerie said...

Those Givenchy shoes are amazing, but I can think of so many other things I could spend that money on. I'd definitely opt for the BCBG girls shoes on this one. Fabulous find!

ediot said...

ThoSe BCBgirls shoes look a lot nicer- truly. i dont like shiny shoes that much - so those are a great pair of wedges.
btw do you shop a lot? i want to shop so bad- and always even more after stopping by your blog

Alicia said...

I actually prefer the BCBG wedges!! ;) Great find miss!!

Maria at Bachman's Sparrow said...

Hate to say it, but I think BCBG kicked Givenchy's butt lol.

xoxo Maria

Sherin said...

Mmmm, shoes. I actually really like the BCB ones. The colour is so much more wearable!

L'Amour et la Paix said...

Both shoes are SO pretty. The BCBG one looks almost identical.. great find!!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

I wish the expensive ones weren't SO expensive because I like them so much more. Though the basic design is great ton both!

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

They're both amazing, but I actually like the BCBG one more. I mean, even if they were the same price (pffft, they're PRACTICALLY the same, no?!), I'd go with the BCBG. I love the suede material!

Great finds, as per usual!

Gorgeous!

Imogen said...

As always I can't believe the price difference. Over $1000 WOW

Tayebug said...

I definitely have to be thrifty on this one. Although those Givenchy's are gorgeous, the BCBG's are pretty too and at that price.....well, can't go wrong.

Purses Pastries Etc... said...

Wow! I don't really know if I could justify spending $1,174 for a pair of shoes that -- no mater how amazing! -- are unfortunately a trendy piece. I think I'd go with the BCBG pair and enjoy them for the right here and now! :)

Wrecked Stellar said...

This is a tough one but I think I'd go Givenchy- not that I can afford it but I like the wide leather strips better. Hope you're having a fabulous week hon! xo, mel

Cindy Whitehead said...

I like them both in different ways - oh no, now I want both! (-:

Ebony said...

While the look is soooo similar, I prefer the leather of the Givenchy.

Audrey Allure said...

Love both of them!

S.Elisabeth said...

Oooh love the originals, but the steals look just as good!!

Ava said...

I absolutely love the Givenchy ones. They are so hot! I would even wear them during the winter. The BCBGeneration ones are really great too. I just bought a pair of heels from that brand. They are so comfortable (which is hard to find with heels!!).

Jessica said...

The Givenchy are undeniably gorgeous, but the BCBG are an amazing look for less!

http://www.ciaobellablog13.blogspot.com/

Meream said...

I'd definitely go cheap. The color is much sweater and I don't like that the fabric strap of the pricey one reaches the side of the sole. Haha. I'm picky, aren't I?

Oana Roxana said...

None of them this time,though Givenchy is pretty cool.

Mara said...

sigh I want the Givenchys but I'd settle for the BCBGenerations :)

Rick said...

Erika, those are both hot!
