Thrifty Thursday: Stuart Weitzman Pipeswoon Platform Pump for Pennies

Lovers, in the left corner you will spot Stuart Weitzman’s playful Pipeswoon Platform Pump; to the right prepare to marvel over the coquettish aesthetic of Mossimo Black’s Versie Pumps in Leopard via Target.

Though the heel of the majestic Mossimo’s is slightly lower (3.75 inches) than that of the wondrous Weitzman’s, and is constructed of textile materials as opposed to the haircalf upper of the originals; for a mere $29.99, in comparison to the $158.00 asking price of their haute couture counterparts, they are every bit as capable of adding a touch of high fashion ferocity to the fashionista’s shoe collection – on a frugalista budget!

Will Stuart Weitzman tempt you into being a big spender, or will Mossimo Black inspire you to save?


Fashionably yours!

I'm not a big fan of leopard print items, but I would definitely get the Mossimos for my sister. Have a happy Thursday, E.

Joanne said...

Definitely lower heel, and lower price. I like to use just a hint of trendy patterns, like in a shoe, or scarf, so these are nice.

Liz said...

Oh man! I'm completely obsessed with heels, especially ones with cool patterns! I love the Stuart Weitzman's much better! But my budget likes the Mossimo Black's much better!

I must get to target. Although, I'd probably just wear the flats, though.

ellie said...

I love this pattern. Yeah! for Target!

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

Target has it all! i have to say i like the Stuarts better though. I can't put my finger on why exactly...they almost look "lighter" to me. Great look for less!

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

I think I like the lighter look of the more expensive ones.

Rocio said...

Some Mossimo shoes are comfortable, some are not. Still I will opt for the Mossimo heels for the price(:

I don't think I'll ever find myself wearing leopard pumps, but if I did, I would totally go with the Stuart Weitzman pair. They look very chic :)

A La Mode et Plus! said...

I can't resist those Stuarts! I would have to say big spender today :)

Denise said...

I will be a big spender today...!

Blondie said...

I love how you find a high price item you like and then find a more affordable option. It helps me know where I need to look for my clients.

Wow those are so similar! I love leopard print, but I always fear a cheap looking print. I think for that reason I couldn't bare to get the Mossimo pair. Seeing them together, I wouldn't be able to get the SW either. The Mossimo pair does look better than a $30 shoe..... I would have to sit this one out though!

la petite fashionista said...

I've been dyinggggggg for a pair of leopard heels, these are super cute! good find erika!

Dancing Branflake said...

Oh My Goodness! Are you kidding me? Yesterday while in SF I was telling Brandi how I have been looking for leopard print heels all over. You found them for me! Going to Target today!

AH said...

i'd definitely go for the mossimo black pair!

Shop N' Chomp said...

I haven't had much luck with Mossimo shoes and I love my SW pumps so I'm going with those! =)

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

I actually like the Mossimo's better and think the fabric is more expensive looking than the dyed pony hair. Yay, you did it again Erika--always an amazing find!

xo Mary Jo

She is Sara said...

More leopard? Yes!!!!! I want!! I think with your help I could find an entire leopard outfit! lol

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

Because of you I bought my first animal print bag EVER!
I got a gorg Kathy bag in leopard and now your posting shoes. OH NO>

Melissa Blake said...

Honestly, I can't choose!!!

Anaiz said...

Awesome! I have a pair of flats similar to these shoes, never thought I'd be wearing animal prints! My 7 year-old self would probably cry lol :):)

Josie said...

Definitely the Target ones... They're too trendy for me to spend that much!

Tights Lover said...

Both pairs of pumps are gorgeous! I love leopard print. I think I'm going to be a big spender and go with the SW!

FRANKIE HEARTS FASHION said...

Stuart's are definitely gorgeous and I'm sure up close they are probably made better too. I'm gonna say I'm a big spender on this one! xo

The Blonde Duck said...

I so love this deal. Great find.

Punctuation Mark said...

this is a really good deal... what did we do before target existed?

ivy's closet said...

Such a great look from Target.

Style Eyes said...

I would definitely go for the lower heel as they would get much more wear and at that price would be so much better value.

Mauimandy@The Grains of Paradise said...

I'm buying these! Thank you for finding such an inexpensive option!! Aloha :)

Sherin said...

I don't think I've ever seen such perfect shoes!!! The Stuart Weitzman ones are incredible.

Grace said...

Mossimo's for me--I need that lower heel! These would be so cute with a little black dress.

fashion junkie said...

Oooh!! Love Mossimo!! I'm always so inspired to save, and can't beat $29.99.

xoxo,
MelRod

Stephanie said...

Iva said...

WOW! practically identical! Happy Friday!

Anna Gray said...

Ooooh, lovely shoes! I adore lepard print and as does my 9 year old cousin! ^_^

Cafe Pasadena said...

I WAS going to ask if Mossimo is the Mossimo of Target but I guess they are. They (M) seem to offer good deals on clothing too.

Cheryl: Oh to Be a Muse said...

i like stuart's better so i'd go with those!

Rick said...

few patterns can produce the swooning effect as do heels in leopard print. one of my favorite stories in 2010 was on this stylish trend. so on this one, I say let's splurge just a little :)
