Thrifty Thursday: Valentino Bow Jelly Thong Sandal for a Steal

My loves, to your left you will find Valentino’s blissful Bow Jelly Thong Sandal; to the right you will spot BCBGeneration’s darling Davie Thong Sandal.

While the BCBGeneration gems lack the Valentino name; for just $39.00, in comparison to the $295.00 price tag of le Bow Jelly Thong Sandal, they are the perfect way to show off one’s pretty pedicure for the summer – at a price fit for the frugalista!

Will Valentino tempt you into being a big spender, or will BCBGeneration inspire you to save?


Fashionably yours!

The BCB looks a little less elaborate, and I like a look with more simple lines, so I'd go with the BCB today.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, Erika!

I'm with Joanne on this one!

Maddy said...

I have a pair of BCBG shoes that have served me very well! My go-to black heels in a pinch, so I'd BCBG for sure. Great quality, without the price tag :)

Stephanie said...

Hmm, I would have to go for neither as I'm not a fan of jellies. But I do loves me some Valentino!

Eternally yours,
Stephanie

I like the bigger strap on BCB's.

Accounting for Fabulous said...

hmm.. I hate to say it but I don't like either :(

Style with Benefits said...

These are adorable! But honestly for sandals, I would never ever pay more than $200. Going with BCBG!

StyleID said...

Nice find!!
I loved them (both) of course but definitely staying with the BCBG ones.
I appreciate this post a lot. I went shopping for nice flat sandals yesterday and came back home with a pair that are ...'ok', you know just 'ok' but did not walk into BCBG.

I'm rarely a huge spending on shoes (unless they are boots), so I'd stick with BCBG here! Great find though! Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Tights Lover said...

BCBGeneration for sure. I might even buy two pairs at that price?

jess said...

The bow is so fun!

Dancing Branflake said...

I would never pay $300 for a flat sandal. Sigh... I am so cheap I know.

Laura said...

I'm not much into the jelly thong sandal look, but if I was it would be BCBG all the way, doll!

My Heart Blogged said...

I would go for the BCBG. I think it would look perfect with a summer dress.

Fashion Imperative said...

These are must have......love Valentino more!!!

Sarah said...

I love these!! Gonna go with BCBG! Happy St.Patrick's Day Erika!

Giovanna&Roberta said...

Oh my! They look adorable! As a young italian fashion designer, Valentino is untouchable for me (and unapproachable at the same time!) But absolutely, BCBG version looks so lovely!

PS: you know dear, P.Piccioli (the actual creative director of the Maison Valentino) was born in my city! His family still lives here.. grgrg

Josie said...

What a fab match -- I love both pairs!

Clare said...

Okay I am obsessed with these!!!! I love either ones! Love love loove!

Angelica Ng said...

Jelly flats...no need to pay too much. I could never pass up Valentino, but the BCBG's here actually look better.

Rachel said...

They're both so cute! The bow detail is wonderful. :D

Kavery said...

$39.00 seems more reasonable and I could even buy two!

Susu Paris Chic said...

I'd actually love a bit more heel... can't change this glamour-liking gal!

Joanne Faith said...

These sandals are super cute, great find! The cheap ones look perfectly acceptable to me. :)

Sherin said...

These are beautiful: perfect for beaches. I'm really bad at looking after sandals, so I'll go with the cheaper option.

The Blonde Duck said...

Neither! I'd die!

knk said...

Ruby Mines said...

Wow - I really thought I was completely over flip flops but I adore these! Such an easy fantastic look. Perfect for running out with jeans but not looking like your just running out. Love it!
Happy Friday
