Tightwad Tuesday: Paloma Barcelo Amaya Sandals for a Steal

My loves, in the left corner you will find Paloma Barcelo’s blissful Amaya Sandal; in the right corner park your gorgeous gaze upon MIA’s Biscotti in Natural.

While the color of the Biscotti beauties is slightly lighter than that of the Paloma Barcelo’s; for a mere $59.99, in comparison to the $295.00 needed to add Amaya to your ultra-covetable shoe collection, they are a superlative selection for the frugalista living on a shoestring budget – and affordable enough to allow one to invest in both charming color choices (Natural and Olive)!

What’s your stand…will you splurge, or save?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Nordstrom and Zappos for the pictures.

Love that I think I could actually wear these, although they would make me very tall, lol. LOVE the Mia version, I couldn't tell which was more expensive!

hoooow cuuuute... i do like the mia version better, actually! it's maybe not quite as heavy looking with the lighter biscotti color. your finds are always pure genius!!

Pop Champagne said...

nice post! I always save for shoes because I don't see the point of spending so much and then stepping in dirt in them! unless I buy them and keep them as a decoration in my closet that'd be fun too hehe
