Tightwad Tuesday: Yves Saint Laurent Deauville Wedge Sandals for a Steal

Mon doux, to your left you will find Yves Saint Laurent’s decadent Deauville Wedge Sandals - the very same ones seen worn by Megan Fox; cast your gaze to the right and you will spot Steve Madden’s tantalizing Taytum.

While the Madden marvels are ever so slightly lower in height than the luscious Laurent’s; for a mere $89.95, in comparison to the $695.00 required to add a little YSL love to your shoe collection, they are every bit as capable of giving le frugalista the chance to try a little haute couture on for size – at a price that doesn’t break the bank!

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 Saks Fifth Avenue and Steve Madden for the pictures.

I cannot believe how closely Steve Madden has replicated this shoe! I'd go for the cheaper pair, though if I were YSL, I'd be a little upset ;-)
