Sunday Steals: L.A.M.B. Pilot for Pennies

My loves, to your left feast your eyes on L.A.M.B.'s ever-fabulous Pilot; to the right place your pretty peeper’s on Type Z’s sassy Strike.

While the Type Z tantalizers feature a 4" heel and 1 1/4" platform, as opposed to the 4 1/2" heel and 1 1/2" platform of the luscious L.A.M.B.'s; for a mere $65.40, in comparison to the $325.00 needed to take the lovely L.A.M.B.'s home, they are every bit as glamorous of a choice for the cheap chica – and allow one to indulge in all three fabulous shades (black, cognac, and grey)!

Which role have you decided to undertake on this sultry Sunday, kittens? Tightwad or spendthrift?


Fashionably yours!

They look great; I love wedge platforms since they're so much more comfy than heels. :D

ellie said...

thank goodness there is a cheaper version.

Joanne said...

I think I'd have to go with the Type Z, just to cut down on the heel height a little, for my walking comfort.

Personally I don't like either, but if I had a choice than the L.A.M.B ones because they just seem more fabulous!


Eternally yours,

Another amazing pair of kicks. I would take either. But of course, I am partial to the cheaper ones.

Natasha said...

I really like the Strikes instead of the Pilots because of the darker interior and the higher heel. Thank you so very much, E, for helping me shop better. LOL. I would spend so much money if it wasn't for you.

Sherin said...

I love wedges. They are the perfect shoe. I defintiely perfer the L.A.M.B. ones.

FashionJazz said...

Omg! Sooo love both of them! Hope u had a stunning wknd x

Grace said...

I probably wouldn't wear either--too clog-esque for my liking.

Dancing Branflake said...

Tight wad all the way! They look super comfy and dare I say slimming.

Calliforniaction. said...

Kavery said...

Tightwad all the way 'coz they look so similar.

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

The Type Z price is far closer to my budget.. however the LAMB lining looks sooo luxe and beautiful.

agnes said...

elles sont superbes, j'adore

Fashionography. said...

I'll go with the steal this time! I like the look of the Type Z better anyway :)

Anonymous said...

Wait till you see them in person...definitely won't look the same. Definitely the L.A.M.B.!

StyleID said...

I will be a Tightwad!

So pretty :)

She is Sara said...

Erika those shoes are so badass! I want I want!

Claire Kiefer said...

Whoa, Erika, I totally can't tell the difference between the two (aside from the color of the inside of course). Amazing! I love the shape of them. I am not allowed to buy shoes right now (!!!) but as soon as I give myself some leeway (Valentines Day maybe? ha) I might have to check the cheaper version out. They are hot!

Joanne Faith said...

They look identical! I really cannot tell the difference - I'd definitely go for the cheaper pair.

Lily Johnson said...

Think i love them both. I love platforms. They are soo cool!

michelle_ said...

first time seeing these boots !
they're really cool !!
and type z has got almost the exact replica of it !

ediot said...

these are so great! the type z are more priceworthy for sure- but i like the inside of the l.a.m.b ones the most.. but if i had to choose with my tight budget it'd be type z

Angelica Ng said...

I don't really like this style...so I can't really say.
