Tightwad Tuesday: Stuart Weitzman 50/50 Boots on a Budget

Kitty cats, back in July of 2010, I introduced you to a less-expensive version of Stuart Weitzman’s 50/50 Boots; now I have unearthed something even better.

On your left, allow your eyes to take in the lusciousness that is the Stuart Weitzman 50/50 Boot – the very same one worn by Jennifer Love Hewitt, Leighton Meester, Lindsay Lohan, and Angelina Jolie; to the right cast your eyes upon Steve Madden’s haute Haviland.

Though the Madden marvel sports a shaft that is a half-size shorter, and a heel that is a half-inch higher than the Weitzman wonders; for just $119.96, as opposed to the $595.00 required to add Stuart to your ever-burgeoning shoe collection, they allow the frugalista to indulge in star style at a far more pleasing price!

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


Fashionably yours!

Even if the leather is a little different in quality, the truth is that the difference in price makes it no worth it.

Very chic - they look like the perfect OTK boots! In this case I'd probably pick the cheaper one - the SM's look identical to the SW ones!

they both look similar but will need to try on to determine for myself.
