Thrifty Thursday: Tory Burch Bradshaw Espadrille Platform Sandals for a Steal

Mes chers, in le left corner, you shall find Tory Burch’s blissful Bradshaw Espadrille Platform Sandals in Natural Tan; in the right corner plant your pretty kohl-rimmed peepers upon DV by Dolce Vita’s fabulous Florence Sandal in Nude.

Though the daring DV by Dolce Vita’s are constructed out of a shiny patent leather, as opposed to the more subdued pure leather of the beautiful Bradshaw’s; for just $89.95, in comparison to the $350.00 one would need to teeter off with the tantalizing Tory’s, they are every bit as capable of helping the frugalista to strut her stuff in style on the boardwalk come summertime – without having to forsake the simple warm weather luxuries of ice cream cones and frappuccino’s!

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


Fashionably yours!

Every shoe you post, I fall in love with... it's becoming a problem!!
I'm going to Miami this weekend and those would be PERFECT!

briannelee said...

Def the thrifty version! I like the patent leather better :)

Joanne said...

Those heels are too teetering for me ... Yikes! I'm still going to browse the shoe dept for something else :)

naomemandeflores said...

They're both so pretty! I'm not so sure I can walk in those heels! :)

Ah I think I will have to skip ont he Tory Burke...wish I could afford lol

Zombie Girrrl said...

I'd go thrifty on this one. I really like the nude shoe trend (a lot), but no shoe is worth $350. Lovely shoes, though. They look impossible, but I can handle any height so long as it's a platform.

Sandy a la Mode said...

those shoes are absolutely beautiful!

ellie said...

Wow, great new price you found. They are so pretty.

lucy and sarah said...

I don't think I'd ever spend that much on a shoe..350..wooooo..they are lovely. Glad you found that cool new price on these.

ana said...

OMG the Tory Burch are soooo pretty! If I had those 350 I'll buy them for sure! real leather is better always ;)

Emma said...

Love the thrifty pair! I just wish I could walk in them!

Maddy said...

Tory Burch all the way! Though I like patent leather, not sure how I like it on the nude color.

daisychain said...

I really prefer the thrifty pair, the colour is more wearable!

Jaime said...

In a perfect world I would run, like RUN to get the Tory Burch ones, I prefer them over the patent leather ones ... still both are beautiful and the price difference is amazing considering that design-wise they are very similar.

Did I inspire this post? I'm seeing Espadrille's everywhere ;-)

I love both pairs of shoes. I also really love Tory Burch...but these, to me, look just about identical. Therefore I shall go easy on the ol wallet and opt for the DV's!

Natasha said...

I love the name that Tory Burch came up with for her shoes, so Sex and The City. However, I would go for the DVs. As for me, I don't think it's really an epiphany than me just deciding not to be a brat about not getting what I wanted. I hope you have a good one, E. :)

AH said...

i'd definitely be thrifty! they're almost identical!

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

You know I'm such a sucker for this editorial you do each week! The funny thing is I think the DV ones look more expensive. If only they weren't so tall!!

Couture Carrie said...

Such a hard decision today... love the color of the DVs, but the matte texture of the TBs...

Another gorgeous find, darling E!

I actually like the shine of the patent leather. Glams it up a little. Dolce Vita, whoo!

I personally think that the DV shoes look more expensive. I am a big fan of Tory Burch and DV but some of Tory Burch's items are WAY over priced, but that is just my opinion!
