Tightwad Tuesday: Stella McCartney Patent Pointed Slingbacks for a Steal

Dolls, in the left corner you shall find Stella McCartney’s tres posh Patent Pointed Slingbacks; to the right shift your gaze to Sam Edelman’s sophisticated Orly Kitten Heel Pumps.

Though the majestic McCartney’s are constructed out of faux leather, and sport a slightly lighter nude hue than the Almond of the Edelman’s; for just $115.00, as opposed to the $645.00 one would require to scoop up the saucy Stella’s, they are the perfect compromise for the fashionista searching for runway style on a shoestring budget!

Tell me, kittens…will you be a big spender and go for Stella McCartney, or be thrifty and spring for Sam Edelman?


Fashionably yours!

Really, love the way these are made. And I'd be happy with the cheaper one.

Megan said...

These are both adorable, but I will tell ya what...slingbacks do NOT stay on my feet! I don't know why...so I have always struggled at wearing them :-( Hope you have a great day!

Couture Carrie said...

I must say the Stella's pointed slingbacks colours are better.
But what a difference of price

I always wondered if I could pull this shoes off... I must try!!! They're too cute.

heatherheartsfashion said...

they are almost the same, the either colour could be better depending on your skin-tone. a little sophisticated for me i think but they are beautiful!

My ankles are too skinny for slingbacks-they always slip off my feet! But I would def go for the cheaper version :)

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Neither, I'm not a fan of pointy toes =-(

Natasha said...

Neither of these are quite doing it for me. No and no, but I do hope you have a good Tuesday. :)

I'm liking the Edelman, the color has a "coffee-with-cream" thing going on, so I'll take that one today.

I love them both, but the Stella color is more my style. Love a sling back. Bring back the low heels!

Ruby Mines said...

so cute- I love how nude shoes always seem to create the illusion that your legs are longer than they really are. :)

I've recently fallen in love with low heels. I love the Sam Edelman ones.

I love both but they don't look too different so I would definitely go for the less expensive.

Love the color but if they were just a little bit higher it would be fabulous!
