Thrifty Thursday: Gucci 'Kills Platform Bootie' on a Budget

Lovers, in the left corner we have Gucci’s glamour-laden Kills Platform Bootie; to the right take a peek at Colin Stuart’s saucy Stretch Bootie.

Though Stuart’s stunners are crafted out of polyurethane, as opposed to the stretch leather construction of the killer Kills Platform Bootie; for a mere $69.00, in comparison to the $990.00 required to call the gorgeous Gucci’s your very own, they are every bit as fierce, unforgettable, and fabulous as their couture counterpart – at a price that is not only haute for the budget fashionista, but humble, as well.

Tell me, kittens…will you be a big spender and go for Gucci, or be thrifty and spring for Colin Stuart?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Bergdorf Goodman and Victoria’s Secret for the pictures.

anhesty said...

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

They're so close, but something is still pulling me to the Guccis!

thebankofmylife said...

I want the Gucci Kills just because the platform is a little higher.

ellie said...

YEAH! For Colin Stuart!

CC said...

I'd definitely splurge on this one because I love the stacked platforms of the Gucci pair. :)

I love the cheaper version! That shoes would go perfectly with everything I own. Maybe white shoes this year for me???? You've just inspired me!

FASHION SNAG said...

I have the Gucci ones and I love them so you know I will pick 'em! x

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

They're so similar! I'd go for the cheap ones.

Anaiz said...

Cute! I love 'em :D Great find!

Steff said...

Beautiful! under normal circumstances would have scrimped and saved for the Guccis...but the other one's a steal!!!

365 Fashion Rehab said...

Nice find! The Colin Stuart ones pretty much are identical (obviously the feel would be different than the Guccis) but I think I would buy them anyway because it is such a special occasion shoe (at least for my life). I like to only buy the designer pieces when I know I will wear them for a long time, like a classic pump or a tall boot! Love, A

Bella *Bellgetsreal said...

another great find. While out shopping will you keep your eyes out for a resonably priced pair of cuff booties? I so want a pair for this Fall but would like a good deal and less than a 3 inch heel. I would like to wear them to work! Your the best!

Joanne said...

Yikes! Too high of a heel for me!

Erin said...

Those are HOT! gorgeous party shoes...

briannelee said...

Def love the thrifty version!!!

Tights Lover said...

I adore these boots...they're gorgeous! But as much as I'd love to drop a G on boots, I'm going to have to go thrifty on this one. No worries though, the Stuarts are a great looking boot for only $69!

Couture Carrie said...

I am a total sucker for Gucci so I am going to have to (theoretically) splurge on this one... though those Colin Stuarts don't look half bad!

Valerie said...

Ooooh, I love them in white too!!! I need to check out Victoria's Secret clothes/shoes more often. These are fantastic.

Janine aka J-Ezzy @ *La Dolce Vita* said...

oh goodness, i want the gucci's and would def do the gucci's!!! colin stuarts aren't half bad though!

Ebony said...

I'd go for the Colin Stuart. In white they are a little stripper-esque, but in black they're so similiar that I wouldn't secretly wish I had the Gucci pair.

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

wow $69? amazing find! gorgeous boots! want them!

Ruby Mines said...

Im always surprised with how great victorias secret's clothes are. Ive ordered a couple skirts and dresses and a pair of colin stuart sandals and they are some of my favorite and most complimented items in my closet. I just wish they were available to try on at stores! Great post! :)

chaoskontrolowany said...

Gorgeous!

janettaylor said...

I love those Gucci!

The Blonde Duck said...

You know me. :) Cheap!

AH said...

i'd definitely go for the colin stuart ones!

Panda! said...

I actually like colin stuart ones more!

this free bird said...

whoa! erika! those are almost exactly the same. i want the gucci's - i can't help it - sometimes the others have weird sweaty lining...but i don't have $990 lying around ANYWHERE - so i think colin stuart and i could learn to live with each other (yeah like it would take much effort seeing as i'm following in your footsteps with the boot addiction!)

Love these shoes!! Except the peep toe isn't very practical for me for Fall in NYC :(

Cindy Whitehead said...

The Colin Stuart shoes more toe! (-: Thanks for Ian's b-day wishes. so sweet of you!! xo

Elle said...

Its not often I say this but I think the cheaper version looks even better than the Gucci! Loveee when that happens :)

Jessica said...

Whoa - these are a dead ringer for the pricey ones! Cheap it is!

Giveaway time! http://style-obsession.blogspot.com/2010/09/giveaway-acanthus-necklace.html

Grace said...

Tough call-Gucci is such a great brand, but realistically, the Colin Stuart's are much more within my price range. Too bad, though!

A La Mode et Plus! said...

I think I would splurge because I like the stacked heel on Gucci better!Once again, a phenomenal find!!
Bisous.

fashion junkie said...

As much as i love Gucci, I'll have to go with the $69 ones. The price is just right, and you can't beat that.

Those Guccis are FIERCE!!!

Lily Johnson said...

My! I love them both but i think i would go for Colin Stuart. Those white boots are just saying 'Lily, you know you love me'

Sherin said...

I want, I want. I love the look of the Gucci ones, but definitely prefer the heel on the Colin Stewart ones.

Leia said...

Wow, they are so similar! I'd love to get my hands on a CS pair! :)

Pratishtha Durga said...

The GUCCIs are awesome. they are beautifully constructed, with a lovely platform. very, very edgy. But since I have no way of splurging that much on a pair of shoes... I'd settle for the Stuarts...

gleenn said...

I so love the Gucci. But both brands are clearly almost identical. :)

I honestly like the Colin Stuarts best... not crazy about Gucci's double platform.

Have a fantastic weekend :)
