Tightwad Tuesday: FRYE Deborah Studded Bootie on a Budget

Darlings, to the left savor the sassy style that is the FRYE Deborah Studded Bootie; on the right alloy your pretty peepers to dance over the decadence of MIA’s Jayne Western Boot.

While the magnificent MIA is a slightly darker shade and proffers a heel that is un petit lower than that of the original; for just $104.47, as opposed to the $497.95 asking price of the FRYE’s, they are every bit as fabulous for the fashionista seeking to add a smattering of cowgirl chic to her shoe collection – at a price that no frugalista could possibly resist!

Tell me, kittens…will you be a big spender and go for FRYE, or be thrifty and spring for MIA?


Fashionably yours!

I don't know. Neither of them appeal to me. I want something with a heel. Happy Tuesday, E.

I need these! I absolutely love the low heel and the lower top. They would go perfect with a skirt and still show off my calves. Love MIA!

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

I like the Frye ones, they're a bit more rustic looking.

Style with Benefits said...

While I do like the distressed leather look of the Frye boots, I'd go with the MIA. It's also a bit sleeker looking and for the price, why not?! Great finds as usual, E!!

I have to admit that I've never been a huge fan of the cowboy boots. I'd much rather have a pair of stilettos any day, but that's just me!

Maddy said...

The color of the MIA are pretty, but you can never go wrong with Frye boots :) Great alternative find, though!

Joanne said...

Oh there's nothing like a Frye. They're always classics, and will definitely provide lots of stylin' steps. I'm going Frye ...

Anne Yang said...

It depends on how often I'd wear them. If it's a passing fancy, definitely the MIA, but for tried and true, would stick with Frye's. Good find!

London's-beauty said...

ooh yeh. I think I like the Mia one ^_^ I need boots, especially because the weather is so cold now :}

Josie said...

These are so cute but no one can replace Frye in my heart.

Ooooh, stunning Frye!

Haute World said...

The cowboy look isn't really my style, but if I were a fan, I'd probably spring for the Frye. I rarely skimp on shoes unless it's a fad, but sturdy boots are something a gal would probably want to invest in!

michelle_ said...

im not a big fan of western boots.. but great steal version !

the chirpy bird said...

haha I love tightwad tuesday! Here's the thing with Frye, the leather, the fit, everything just gets better with age. So if you have the spare cash I'd always go for frye because they're an advestment that will pay off!

If I had the money I would go with Frye on this one! I think I like the coloring better.

Shop N' Chomp said...

I actually like the MIAs more ;)

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

I would die for those Fryes! So fab. The MIA is an awesome alternative...great pick!

lucy and sarah said...

I've always had good luck with MIA.

better days said...

I think you'd get a good wear out of these from MIA. They always fit well and are comfortable.

ellie said...

Such a great affordable find.

this free bird said...

I'll take the MIA STAT. I need a boot to cheer me up ASAP. Did I say STAT and ASAP? oy

xo,

Couture Carrie said...

Great work!

Nikolett said...

I've never been much into cowgirl chic but I do love the MIA ones, I think they'd look amazing with a floral-print dress or something. So I'll go with those ones :D Hope you've been having a happy Tuesday!

Sootjeelina said...

I love ankle booties, I wear them about every day!
Btw, thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, I really appreciate it

xoxo Sootjeelina <3

chaoskontrolowany said...

So great boots! <3

AH said...

i'd have to go for the frye ones, the mia ones just don't have the right look... although i guess they would after a couple of times walking in the rain... hm...

WeShop said...

These are gorgeous and practically identical. xx

The Blonde Duck said...

LOVE it!

molly said...

Oh, I do like MIA. Although, I don't know if I'm the cowgirl type.

Fashionography. said...

I like the lighter ones better. I actually have a chestnut colored pair of boots similar to these and I love them!

Yvonne said...

I am gonna go superfrugalista on you and keep my $$ in my wallet. I don't do "cowgirl" and I don't do "low heel" - typically. Great find -but not for this "city slicker"

Clare said...

I can't believe how expensive those 497.95 ones are!! I saw some ones similar at Forever 21 that were even cheaper but not nearly as intricate and special looking

Krystal said...

definitely frye!! I like the color so much better!

Grace said...

I prefer the color of Frye's, but honestly, I probably wouldn't spend that much on either.

Sherin said...

I've always had a place in my heart for cowboy boots. I love the FRYE ones. The distressed looks much better.
