Tightwad Tuesday: Dolce Vita Marilyn Belted Boot on a Budget

My loves, to your left you will find Dolce Vita’s daring Marilyn Belted Boot – the very same ones seen giving un petit lift to Blake Lively, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Kim Cattrall, and Khloe Kardashian; to your right take a gander at Charles Albert’s blissful 1769 Black Double Dip OTK High Heel Boots.

Though the ambrosial Albert’s are crafted out of vegan materials as opposed to the true suede and leather of the magnificent Marilyn’s; for a mere $58.00, in comparison to the $350.00 price tag of the Dolce Vita’s, they are every bit as head-turning as their haute couture counterparts – at a price no frugalista could possibly resist!

Tell me, kittens…will you be a big spender and go for Dolce Vita, or be thrifty and spring for Charles Albert?


Fashionably yours!

Interesting design going on there. But since it's not a style of boot that I would wear too often, I'll be thrifty and choose the Charles Albert.

Natasha said...

Charles Albert, no doubt. I love the fact that those boots are made out of vegan materials. Hope you have a good day, E.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

They are SO similar!

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

They both look great from the photos--although perhaps would make me too tall. It's amazing that the price of boots has gone down so much, it used to be you couldn't get a good pair for less than $500!

p.s. I listened to every song on your playlist yesteryday--fabulous as always!

For something as fab and trendy as this, I'd definitely go for the steal :) If it were a classic look, I'd say for the better quality shoe.

The Blonde Duck said...

Those boots are made for STRUTTING!

ellie said...

I would go for the cheaper ones if I could. I know I'd probably want them to wear to a concert and well, a lot of jumping...wishful thinking. I'm sure I'd be in my trusty sneakers instead, or snow boots..as the case maybe.

Sherin said...

I die!!! Definitely one of the coolest boots I've seen...ever. Love the style. I can see myself wearing them all the time, so could definitely justify buying the Dolce Vita ones.

Melanie's Randomness said...

Oohh these are hot!!! Hmmm I'm torn on this one because the $350 isn't astronomically expensive. I'd have to try them on & really like them. hehe. =)

Shop N' Chomp said...

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

I like the look of the Dolce Vita's more BUT I like the vegan materials even more. Very cool. I'd def choose them over the real deal.

Stephanie said...

I can't even tell a difference. You do such an amazing job at finding the cheaper versions of everything. :)

elle said...

These are definitely fierce (maybe a little too fierce for me!) but I would definitely try them at the cheaper price!

Oslo by fashion said...

They are almost identical!

Grace said...

Hmm, I would have to say the Marilyn's on this one. I really live in my Dolce Vita flats.

Angelica Ng said...

Oh no debate! Dolce Vita. The leather looks so much better, sleeker and the shape overall is much nicer.
