Thrifty Thursday: Sperry Top-Sider Southport Slingback Wedge for Less

Mes chers, to the left take a peek at Sperry Top-Sider’s sassy little summer perfect Southport Slingback Wedge in Red; to the right brace yourself for a swoon-fest over Dexter’s magnificent Megan Canvas High Wedge Sling in Red via Payless.

Though the darling Dexter’s sport a slightly higher wedge than their Southport sister; for a mere $16.99, as opposed to the $89.95 required to spruce up your shoe collection with un petit Sperry Top-Sider action, they are le perfect way for the budget babe to get nautical this summer – at a price that allows one to scoop up both Hamptons-esque shades (Red and Navy)!

Tell me, kittens…will you be a big spender and go for Sperry Top-Sider, or be thrifty and spring for Dexter?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Nordstrom and Payless for the pictures.

I am always about thrift spending and saving. Particularly with my money being tied up in the Fitness competition. I always appreciate it when fellow bloggers find similar items for a price that's less :)

ellie said...

Wow, I even like the name Dexter, too. Great price.

I definitely like the Sperry better. My daughter says Sperry Top-siders are all the rage on campus with the college set.

Great find but neither of these are particularly suited to my taste! I have been missing you lately - life has prevented my visits. Sorry about that!
Have an awesome Thursday!

Loven the sweet leather bows on both of these shoes :)

OK I love them both but me, being a shorty would spend the extra $$$$ on those Sperry Top-Sider.

If I was going to splurge on Sperrys, I'd probably go classic over the wedges.

$16.99 is so impossible to pass up, especially with those beautiful shoes. Totally, totally going with the Dexters.

Laura said...

I like the Dexter a LOT more! I love when that happens :) This wedge would be so perfect for a summer afternoon of sailing!

Dancing Branflake said...

I just bought a pair of Sperry's yesterday! I don't know how they are as I have not really walked around in them a ton, but I love the fit already. Getting a pair of wedges is ultra tempting!

the nyanzi report said...

Great shoe for this time of year. Looks great.

Tights Lover said...

Those wedges are a must for the summer! And $16.99 for the Dexter? Amazing!

Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

Great shoes! Love them both but since they looks practically identical, I'll go for the Dexter ones since they're at sch a great price!

That's a good match! I really couldn't pass up Sperry's though.

Drama Queen #1 said...

I'm kinda-sorta addicted to anything high (and I pull it off marvelously, being so tiny), so I'll go for those delicious Dexter's. :^)

My Heart Blogged said...

Oh my gosh those Dexter ones are so affordable!

Lindsay and Maddie said...

Wow so cool! I'm new on blogspot.com. So I was wondering if you could check out my blog and tell me whatcha think.

Roddy Jones said...

I like the Dexters too. Something about having the sole of a shoe with a pop. I figure as I walk and the person behind me can see the cute checkered sole. :)
