Sunday Steals: Steven Grifin Platform Clog on the Cheap

Lovers, on the left you will spot Steven’s gorgeous Grifin Platform Clog in Brown; to the right take a gander at Charlotte Russe’s stellar Studded Peeptoe Mary Jane.

Though the très chic Charlotte’s are constructed out of faux pebbled leather as opposed to real, and feature a slightly higher heel and platform than the Steven’s; for a mere $32.50, in comparison to the $170.00 needed to make Grifin your own, they are the perfect way for the frugalista to add a little boho bliss to her shoe collection – at a price that doesn’t break the bank!

Tell me, kittens…will you be a big spender and go for Steven, or be thrifty and spring for Charlotte Russe?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Shopbop and Charlotte Russe for the pictures.

To be honest, I don't like either.

Those Stevens are pretty hot..but I like the price of the other shoe.

lucy and sarah said...

Oh, such a hard decision..but that sweet price wins out.

better days said...

These are so sweet. I'm not into the higher heel though.

Couture Carrie said...

Another gorgeous find, darling!

Ill take Charlotte Rousse's! I find their shoes to be SO confortable!

Please check out my vintage review!

molly said...

So gorgeous. I think I'd feel just as sexy in the cheaper ones.

Joanne said...

These look like a very 70s inspired style, very nice. I'd go with the Steven.

Rachel said...

I actually like the CR pair better...more simplistic. :D

Grace said...

Hmm, I don't think I'd wear either. I do prefer faux leather, though, so I'd go with the Charlotte Russe.

ellie said...

Such a fun shoe. I'm cool with the more inexpensive one.

chaoskontrolowany said...

Lovely;)

Val said...

Ooh, boho. I would go with the less expensive, as always!

Theresa said...

I'd much prefer the look and quality of the Steven's. I usually really don't like clogs, but this variation of them is so cute!

Mimi said...

Can we say fabulous?! I actually prefer the Charlotte Russe version. Great find!

Cheryl: Oh to Be a Muse said...

I have those exact CR platforms in my shopping cart online. I would definitely go with the Charlotte Russe version. Have a happy Sunday.

ediot said...

Hi darling. hope you're enjoying your weekend
nice picks here- i like the ones from steven a bit more simply because of the color and shine of the shoes.

Karina said...

I like the CR pair ;) and the price is great!!! Hope your having a great weekend sweetie ;) xoxo

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

I am loving these clogs with socks for the winter. They have some very similar ones at Target right now.

janettaylor said...

Mhmmmm...60's look,totally love 'em.

StyleID said...

definitely thrifty! Not only for the price difference but the Charlotte Russo look more ....'stylized'.
I think I will start to get ready for summer :)

Claire Kiefer said...

So funny how similar these are . . . but I think I'd go with the Stevens in this case. I love Steven (and really everything by Steve Madden) and I like the muddled leather and the two tone of the leather/platform much better than the cheaper ones. Good find, though!

WeShop said...

Oh I love them both - great colours! xx

Sherin said...

They're really cool looking. I think I'll pick the Steven ones. Thet look more classy.

Shooting Stars Mag said...

honestly, I thought the Charlotte side was going to be more at first because I think it looks better. Guess it works out then.

Marrisa said...

I was actally at the mall today and almost bought the CR ones! If I had the choice, I still would have gone with the CR. Not much into the studs.

i love the charlotte russe pair!

She is Sara said...

I have some dark brown ones from F21 that look like that! Those Charlotte ones are perfect!

Yvonne said...

I'm not much for the sturdy clog look but the Charlotte looks "cheap" to me. You can really tell the leather is not real. :(

Clare said...

Hmmm I am not a fan of big chunky heels. BUT I cannot BELIEVE the Charlotte Russe deal!

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

HO HUM. I actually like the Steven's better - I like how SHBAM those details are. But, hey, I'm a frugalista so HEY THERE CHARLOTTE RUSSE.

I like the Charlotte Russe ones!

My Heart Blogged said...

I like the Steve Maddens a little more. But, I think I would have to walk VERY carefully in either pair.

The Blonde Duck said...

Have a magical Monday!

Totally sexy..even the cheaper version.

I actually really like the texture of the Stevens, so I would go with that one! Plus, I love all Steve Madden shoes :)

I think I'd have to go with the Steven's here.

Kassie said...

I'm torn on this one because with shoes I almost go with quality and buy the real brand. However a few days ago I bought the comfiest heels you could ever imagine. I've never had such a good pair of cheap heels.
