Thrifty Thursday: Alexander Wang Alla Leather Peep-Toe Wedge for Less

My loves, on the left we have Alexander Wang’s fierce Alla Leopard Peep-Toe Wedges, the very same ones seen countless times on Khloe Kardashian; to the right you will find Nina’s Yaneli High Wedge Shoe.

Though the hot to trot Nina’s proffer an ever so slightly lower heel height than the Wang wonders; for just $109.95, as opposed to the $650.00 price tag of their couture cousins, they are every bit as capable of helping the fashionable femme fatale that is vous take a walk on the wild side – at a price that doesn’t break the bank!

Now the question remains…will you be thrifty, or suckered into putting on your spendthrift cap?


Fashionably yours!

I find Nina's a bit neater, actually. So sweet the price...for Nina's.

Couture Carrie said...

Hmmmmm might have to splurge on this one because of the two-tone aspect of the Alexander Wangs... But those Ninas are certainly a fab find!

ooh la la..wow, I'd go on the cheap, which might be too expensive for me. But they are so cool.

Maddy said...

I think I'll have to go with the Alexander Wang version!! It just exudes sex kitten :)

BTW- I have to agree...your blog template is the essence of Cafe Fashionista!

Dancing Branflake said...

I love both but they cheaper one seems just as awesome. And expensive enough that they wont hurt my feel too much. Yay for prints!

Joanne said...

Hm, I'm not sure I really "get" the peep-toe thing. I'd prefer this in a little closed toe ankle boot for myself :/

briannelee said...

Jamie said...

hmm...you always pose the tough challenges..I WANT to say WANG all the way...BUT I think since the leopard she is more if a trend than a timeless classic, I am going to go thrifty on this one.

The Wangs get my vote on this one. SO fabulous!

Natasha said...

I'm not very fond of leopard print, but I think the Alexander Wang shoes are definitely much more worth spending the money.

Lovely! The nina ones for sure!!

Ayanna Michelle said...

I like the Alexander Wang shoe better! I wouldn't buy the Nina. It's not ugly, I just don't like how rough it looks!

Anaiz said...

I like the Alexander Wang version! So cute, great find!

Rick said...

I must say I love the leopard trend and observing ever stylish femme fatales on the prowl in Gotham's concrete jungles sporting them.

I like both, but the Alexander Wang prevails because of the alternate pattern above the heel which is very eye catching.

(I also love the leopard jacket in the photo of the previous post).

much love,

Rick

WhitWatWear said...

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

Clare said...

Shoot. I like Wang's a bit better. They just look a bit classier. I would have to splurge

Midnight Cowgirl said...

Love the Nina shoes!

Angelica Ng said...

A Wang! You know, I've noticed that when going with animal print, nothing beats the designers.

Mimi said...

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

Wow, love the Nina version (and the fact that it's lower is great for me). I like it a lot since leopard shoes can be a fleeting thing but $100 might be worth one season :)

WeShop said...

Both are gorgeous. Love wedges. xx

Krystal said...

I'll be thrifty I think :)

meg said...

I don't like that back part on Wang's shoe. I don't see why everyone is crazy about it. It looks cheap. I like the cheaper version, and closed toe would be a bit more efficient this time of year in these parts.

michelle_ said...

that's a really awesome steal !
im loving anything leopard this season :D

thanks for stopping by at my blog !
glisters and blisters

Rachel said...

Practically the same shoe! Amazing!

Sarah @ Pandora's Box said...

Ahh, these are such a fantastic take on leopard print! I'd be happy with either :)

You can never go wrong with Leopard print wedges!! I definitely prefer the Nina ones!
