Tightwad Tuesday: Jimmy Choo Connor Wedge Sandal for a Steal

Kitty cats, to the left take in the chicness that is Jimmy Choo’s Connor Wedge Sandal - the very same ones seen on the lovely Claudia Schiffer; to the right prepare to be smitten with Steve Madden’s saucy Sheilaa.

While the mesmerizing Madden’s sport an ever so slight higher wedge heel than the Choo charmers; for just $69.95, as opposed to the $595.00 required to claim Connor as your very own, they are the perfect compromise for the frugalista – and allow one to scoop up all three haute hues (Black Patent, Blush Patent, and Coral Patent)!

Which role have you decided to undertake on this terrific Tuesday, kittens? Tightwad or spendthrift?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Nordstrom and Steve Madden for the pictures.

Steve Madden! Though I do like the Jimmy Choos but not for that price tag. Plus, it's a pretty generic design so I wouldn't splurge on this type of wedge. How do you find these?!! :)

Joanne said...

Those are a pretty summer sandal. I'd go with the Maddens, maybe in a lighter color, and take stroll down a boardwalk wearing them ...

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

I'd go with the cheaper version in this case.

Megan said...

these both look like something i think would be super comfortable and then i would attempt to walk alot in them around town, and my feet would bleed because they aren't as comfy as they look.

with that being said...they are both incredibly CUTE!!!! id def not spend the extra though for the choos!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

The Steve Maddens totally work!

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

Natasha said...

I would definitely get those shoes because Jimmy Choo made them, not because they're cute {though they are}. I love Jimmy Choo!

AH said...

the steve madden ones, definitely!

Fashion Imperative said...

So cute! They are completely the same but Jimmy Choo is the one and the only!

hugs and kisses by Mani.

StyleID said...

Of course I would get the Jimmy Choo, but budget-wise the Steve Madden, they are so identical that wouldn't mind the change.
These are cute and look comfortable.

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

They look identical!

Dancing Branflake said...

Whoa! These are exactly the same! To be honest, I would want the Jimmy Choo just to say I owned a Jimmy Choo. But I would never have the guts to actually buy them. Go Steve!

Tights Lover said...

Wow. These shoes are gorgeous! I love the Choo's, but don't love 1000% markups (sorry for the finance nerdy-ness). I'll take the Madden's happily, thanks!

MM said...

Good comparison!! i would choose the Jimmy Choo ones.

xoxoxo

Love this one! If the Steve Madden ones fit, I'm going to snag them at the mall asap! Missed your Monday music yesterday...this week got off with a flurry and I haven't had a chance to do any blog reading until right now! But you were one of my first stops! Hoping your week is off to a wonderful start Erika!

Diana said...

Love them and these could actually be a shoe I would wear because they are some where in the middle of a heel and a flat! :) Great choice! Hope you're having a great day love.

Stephanie said...

I would be tightwad with these pair of cute looking shoes!


Eternally yours,
Stephanie

Josie said...

The Steve Maddens are adorable and a perfect match! Love it.

Hmm, I prefer the Steve Madden ones: it's got a slightly higher heel.

I'm not sure that this is really my style, but if I was choosing between the two it would be Madden all the way.

Jimmy Choo! I love the way the straps cross so delicately across the toes. Madden just looks sloppy beside the Choos.
