Sunday Steals: Diane von Furstenberg Opal Wedge for Less

Dolls, to the left rest your kohl-rimmed eyes upon Diane von Furstenberg’s out-of-this-world Opal Wedge in Camel; to the right prepare to swoon over Gianni Bini’s amazing Adrianna Sandal in Hampton Tan.

Though the Bini offering lacks some of the height of the von Furstenberg’s – sporting a 4.5” wooden wedge heel as opposed to the 5” wooden wedge heel of Opal; for a mere $98.99, in comparison to the $295.00 needed to scoop up the designer darlings, they are the perfect compromise for the girl surviving on a shoestring budget – and give one the chance to indulge in both sassy shades (Hampton Tan and Grey)!

Your turn loves…will you be thrifty or suckered into putting on your spendthrift cap?


Fashionably yours!

I like the color and the lower height of the Bini, that one's for me.

Lux and Stan said...

Wow, I can't tell the difference. I'd be just as happy with the cheaper one.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

I'd be thrifty this time.

This would definitely be a great spring and summer investment at a thrifty price.

I like that thrifty price. Awesome find.

I really like the darker color of the Gianni Bini more. But the nude DVF's would make your legs look super long.

Punctuation Mark said...

very cute ones... hope you're having a nice weekend!

Audrey Allure said...

Love the DVF ones!

Rachel said...

I'd definitely splurge on the DVF pair. I just bought the DVF Theia wedges and I LOVE them, so want to get some more DVF shoes now! :)

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

These two are so similar that I would go with the cheaper version.

Haute World said...

I can't believe how similar these look! The thrifty version for sure, even though I prefer the color of the DVF one ever so slightly.

Oh to Be a Muse said...

they're both really cute. good choice either one, although the Bini shoes are much cheaper and a nicer color.

Clare said...

I like the color of the DVF ones better. But either of these kicks are amazing!

nookie said...

I actually like the Giani Bini ones more because of the darker color;)

Josie said...

I have to go with the DVF ones -- gorgeous and such a stunning color.

I love the slightly darker colour of the second ones.

Wow.. these two definitely do look similar... I'm leaning towards the DVF one though.. I like the lighter color. :)

Definitely thrifting! I love both wedges though!

One need not be suckered this round. The Binis are quite nice :)

Hope you had a nice weekend, Erika!

She is Sara said...

Omg omg I want! They are perfect for summer and I have been hunting for some like that :)

Kavery said...

They both look very comfy but the lower heel would be better for me

Sandy a la Mode said...

omg! i need some wedges and i think i need these!! they are adorable!!

Burning Skies said...

I actually like the Bini version more because of the color. :)

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

Alas, these are too tall for me, but if were a few inches shorter I would be off to buy the Opals! I found a great shoe on the Bergdorf website, I must track it down and send it to you to see if you can find a similar {but better priced alternative} ;)

Hope your weekend was divine!

xoxo Mary Jo

Miss Caitlin S. said...

Wow they are so very similar! I would go with the inexpensive pair for sure! xoxo

not a huge fan of thick straps on sandals. maybe it's just me but it makes my calves look big.
