Sunday Steals: Christian Louboutin Une Plume for Pennies

Darlings, in the left corner you will find Christian Louboutin’s unforgettable Une Plume; to your right check out Steve Madden’s wondrous Wissper in Black Patent.

While the majestic Madden’s sport gold buckles, as opposed to the basic black of the buckles on the Loubies; for a mere $89.95, as opposed to the $595.00 needed to steal away with Une Plume, they are every bit as capable of giving the budget babe quite a bit of haute height this summer – at a price that allows one to scoop up all three chic colors (Black Patent, Blush Patent, and Teal Patent)!

So mes chéris, what are you up to today? Will your AmEx take a beating with a splurge, or will you stay safe and thrifty with a frugal buy?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Barney’s and Zappos for the pictures.

Totally a classic. I like that cheaper price, too.

Style Eyes said...

They are pretty similar and with that much price difference, I would definitely go for the cheaper ones.

Rachel said...

Great wedges! I think I'm starting to like them more than heels; so much more comfy!

AH said...

i wish i could say the louboutins, but i'd have to be thrifty and go for steve madden. both pairs are gorgeous...

briannelee said...

Def the Steve Madden version!

Joanne said...

They look pretty identical, but I'd have to take a pass on these ... Those wedges are too tall for me to tackle!

Audrey Allure said...

fabulous find !!

Meg said...

I like the Louboutins better. I'm not crazy about gold buckles on the Maddens. But I can't afford them, so I guess I'm out of luck!

Natasha said...

The Loboutins are pretty, but I don't think I'd ever buy wedges from them. I'd rather stick with the Steve Maddens because they're higher and I love almost everything Steve Madden.

Couture Carrie said...

Steve Madden all the way!
Fab find, darling E!

Definitely the Steve Madden's! I think those would be so cute for summer.

sharonlei said...

Although the Steve Madden's price tag is more appealing, I'd definitely want to give the Loubies a test run! I tried the Madden ones on and they were not comfy at all. Not enough cushin in the sole and the "leather", well, it wasn't leather so it was quite stiff!... :/

I wonder if I'll ever be lucky enough to own a pair of red soles!! Sigh. :)

xx Love & Aloha

Sherin said...

I've always wanted a pair of Louboutins, but they're definitely out of my price range, so I'm sticking to Steve Maddens!

Sarita said...

Love it that you found these! What a thrifty alternative.

Grace said...

Those are cute!! Pretty good match at that price point, too.

StyleID said...

Not that I wouldn't want a pair of Louboutins but at that price I am staying with my Steve Madden, that I've been so 'hook on' lately and love how they fit.
BTW you post the best wedges here.
