Tightwad Tuesday: Dolce Vita Pela Crisscross Wedge Sandals for a Steal

Darlings, to your left you will spot Dolce Vita’s precious Pela Crisscross Wedge Sandals in Pink; to your right prepare to fawn over Mossimo’s perky Pilar Strappy Wedge Sandals in Pink via Target.

While the darling Dolce Vita’s are constructed out of true leather, as opposed to the faux of the Mossimo’s; for a mere $29.99, in comparison to the $170.00 needed to add Pela to your shoe collection, they are the perfect way to add a touch of pretty in pink to your look du jour - at a price that allows you to indulge in not one, not two, but all four fabulous colors (pink, brown, nude, and black)!

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


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Saks Fifth Avenue and Target for the pictures.

My Heart Blogged said...

I think this is the first time I want the expensive one. The pink is bold, and bright. But, the dusty rose color of the Mossimo ones are really cute too.

I think because they remind me a bit of "Jellies" in a way (I know they are leather - its the style/color - something... I can't go there. That being said - if you were doing this trend for the first time go with target!

Sweet said...

wow...love the idea...but with the color and style...I think I might go with the comfort...which ever is good to walk with then that is my choice...

The color on the Mossimo is softer and pretty, but ouch ... Can I wear them with black tights at least?

gorgeous dupe :)

Natasha said...

Though the Mossimos are prettier, I'm not a fan of either. It's just too gladiator for me. I hope you have a good Tuesday, E.

Rachel said...

I actually like the Mossimo pair better, since the color's a bit more muted (I love dusty rose!). :)

Emily said...

I love the neon pink color of the dv pair!

I actually like the target version better. Ironically enough, they look sturdier.

I don't really like these shoes, but I like the Dolce Vita better because the color is more bright. I love bright colors! But the Mossimo is really lovely too!

xoxo Sootjeelina <3

Rachel said...

Okay. I need to rush to Target because I need those wedges! They're so pretty!!

Tights Lover said...

Both pairs of shoes are absolutely gorgeous! I gotta say, I think I'm going with the Dolce Vita here. I love the brighter color and it isn't a horrible amount of money to fork over...especially for shoes that look like that!

Tasha Gregson said...

Wow!! I have the biggest shoe crush right now :D xxxx

Kavery said...

They are almost similar except for the colour. Great buy

Fashionography. said...

Marrisa said...

Yvonne said...

I think the Dolce Vita's look better but I am not a big wedge fan. I think I only 2 pair - everything else is stiletto!

I love the color on the Dolce Vita pair.

The Blonde Duck said...

And they're PINK!

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

I like the Mossimo color better. Target has come a long way! Can't wait to see what other designer will pick Target as their avenue to the typical shopper.

lucy and sarah said...

How cool is that to find them at that price! I'm on the cheap.

molly said...

awesome pink! Love that you can thrift on this.

meg said...

Oh, these are so cool. I'm glad you found a good deal on the cheaper ones.

ryan said...

Love the color! I definitely would go with the cheap ones here, I don't wear pink enough to justify the price.

yiqin; said...

I ADORE that color!

modanista junkie said...

Ooh I'm actually loving the Mossimo ones better!! You sure know how to pick the winners. That's why I come to your blog to get the low down on the latest steals.

Sherin said...

They're such a cute pair. I definitely prefer the Mossimo one. The colour is so much more wearable.

Liz said...

I love these shoes! I think the idea of buying the Mossimo ones in all four colors! But, I have a soft spot for the bright pink of the Dolce Vita shoes!! So, I'm torn on this one! Great find :)

TT's Attic said...

I like the bright pink Dolce Vitas but both of them are very cute! :)

Love love LOVE the bright pink Dolce Vitas!

va said...

have to say i like mossimo's version better since the color is more subtle .

J. said...

Honestly, I think both pairs are supercute, so hard to choose!

But when in doubt, always go for the cheaper pair, I guess ;)

Angelica Ng said...

Dolce Vita, it's obvious why. No explanation required. ;) Haha! Why do I always seem to pick the more expensive one? I guess I'm just willing to pay for quality.
