Sunday Steals: Lanvin Cap-Toe Ballerina Flat for Less

Mon chéri, in the left corner we have Lanvin’s très chic Cap-Toe Ballerina Flat; in the right corner we have GAP’s glamorous Cap Toe Patent Ballet Flats.

While the gorgeous offering from GAP is constructed out of patent leather, as opposed to the true contrasting buffalo leather of the luscious Lanvin’s; for a mere $39.99, in comparison to the $555.00 needed to add a little Lanvin love to your shoe collection, they are a fabulous way for the frugalista to channel luxury style – without breaking the bank!

Which role are you playing today, kitty cats…the frugal femme fatale or the sassy spendthrift?


Thanks to Neiman Marcus and GAP for the pictures.


Fashionably yours!

OneCraftyFox said...

Oh, wow, they look exactly alike except the shade. Today I will play the role of the frugal femme fatale!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend :)

Rachel said...

They're lovely! I really like the colors, they look so cute. :D

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Eh I'd go with the cheaper ones.

Cindy Whitehead said...

I think these are amazing for a comparison! Gap in this case - save some $$ to spend on something else for sure (-:

ellie said...

I can't believe how expensive these could be.

lucy and sarah said...

Sweet. At the GAP. My last pair were black and not nearly as comfy as I'd hoped. But I'd love to try on these at the GAP.

molly said...

Wow, what a great find. Thank goodness for THE GAP.

Natasha said...

I can't wear either flat, but the ones from the Gap are really affordable. Me like. Hope you have a happy Oscars Sunday.

But it's almost the same, this is weird and a little embarrassing to this brands

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

I LOVE this post! I was just a Gap and didn't see these but I'm going back today because my favorite pair of flats (10x more than my Chanel flats) is a pair from the Gap--they fit my foot so much better! Yay! Thank you for this post Erika!

Ruby Mines said...

I really like the gap flats- they had one in the store with a black cap toe which I really like for black cropped pants. Have a great sunday!

Erika!! I haven't stopped by for a while. I love the new blog look. Chictastic!! :)

And me loves acute cap-tow ballet flat. I'm sure the Lanvin one is like a dream.. but the Gap one is super cute as well. Gosh, I haven't been to a Gap in forever!

Well, I hope you are well my dear. Miss ya. xo.

xx Love & Aloha

Josie said...

What a fabulous match! I love the Gap ones -- super, super cute.

Oh to Be a Muse said...

i really love lanvin, but the gap flats are identical and at a great price. so pretty!

Style Eyes said...

I defintely prefer the Lanvin ones. But seeing as could never afford or justify spending that amount of money on them, I would happily settle for the Gap ones.

Anna Gray said...

Oooh, those are chic and comfy looking! I still cannot fathom how you are able to know so much about fashion! I wish that I knew how to put together fashionable outfits like ya do!

Ha, my normal outfit is usually jeans and a hoodie. Bleh. :p

Sherin said...

They're such a cute pair of flats! I love the Gap ones.

Grace said...

Well...I must say that the Lanvins are gorgeous! But the Gap are cute, too, and much more affordable!

Clare said...

Okay, these are adorable!! I want the Gap ones!!!

sapphirewhisper said...

I really love the color combo for Lanvin but that's way too much for me to spend on flats (heels or boots is another story....)

Paislea Elyse said...

love those shoes. and what a fabulous savings with gap!! i absolutely love the gap!!

Ga all the way!

Dancing Branflake said...

These are too cute! I wish I could wear flats without looking 5. Sigh.

FashionJazz said...

Love the gap ones! Happy Sunday xx

ryan said...

I would love those Gap ones to be in my spring wardrobe, they are adorable!

Kavery said...

I like flats period. So both these would be great to own.

D I N A B E L L A said...

They look comfortable don't they?.. NICE!

Rachel said...

I NEED those Gap flats!! I'm adding them to my shopping list! (Along with that striped J.Crew blazer!)

♥ sugarpuff ♥ said...

I'm agree with other bloggers!
I vote for GAP since it's cheaper and not really bad at all

Maddy said...

Wow! Gap all the way because there's no way I'd spend $500+ on a pair of flat!

Drama Queen #1 said...

GAP. Definitely. The Lanvin ones look squished and kinda deflated! :^)

Rick said...

It's amazing how you find these comparisons, but in this case: gotta go with the Gap. Happy Sunday!

She is Sara said...

Erika you always find the best stuff! Both of these are cute, but these kinds of shoes tend to hurt my feet :( but they are perfect everyday ballerina shoes!

Lexy @ Quirky Explosion said...

I actually LOVE GAP shoes. They're so fabulously cheap and chic and THATS WHATS IMPORTANT. Awesome. I love the detailing at the toe.

meg said...

These are so interesting. I'm glad to see they are at the gap.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

such a good match-up!!! I would go Gap for sure without a shadow of a doubt, and I would probably want to do something cheaper before I even did that... moral of the story is that I don't wear flats too much so I see no need to spend much money on them!

Susu Paris Chic said...

I got my first pair of ballet flats last summer... daringly, since my hubby had clearly said he hated them. He is a high-high-hiiiiigh heel guy!

Joanne Faith said...

I don't think I could ever by designer flats. It just seems wrong! I always mess them up too quickly anyway.

Glass and Splinters said...

I actually prefer the look of the Gap Flats, they look so comfy.

Rachel {Inspiration in Italy} said...

Hello my lovely friend. I'm adoring the new look of your blog, it's so pretty!! These ballerina flats are absolute perfection, and once again I am floored at your ability to find the most gorgeous items for cheaper. These gap flats are every bit as beautiful as the Lanvin shoes and what an INCREDIBLE price! I'm very much going with the lovely gap shoes today. Thanks for letting us all know about them!!
