Tightwad Tuesday: Rock & Republic Nika Pumps for Pennies

Lovers, to the left take a peek at Rock & Republic’s incredible Nika Pumps – the very same ones seen worn by Annalynne McCord, Audrina Patridge, Kristen Stewart, Rihanna, Drew Barrymore, and Katie Cassidy; to the right prepare to swoon over Anne Michelle’s mesmerizing Virus-01.

While the Anne Michelle marvels are constructed out of manmade materials, as opposed to the true suede of the original Nika’s; for a mere $32.97, in comparison to the $295.00 required to spice up your life with a little Rock & Republic, they are the perfect alternative for the frugalista looking to add a splash of rocker chic to her shoe collection!

Which role have you decided to undertake on this terrific Tuesday, kittens? Tightwad or spendthrift?


Fashionably yours!

A true tightwad, I can't buy either! I'll wait for a smaller heeled pump ...

Megan said...

I'd definitely be on the cheap with this one.

They're both lovely, but I can't really handle walking in pumps!

I would definitely go for the cheaper pair. I think the colour is nicer. I am not sure if I could walk in either pairs though.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

I'd go with the cheaper ones, they look identical!

Maddy said...

Tightwad pair for sure! These shoes are perfect for a night out at the clubs and if someone mistakenly happens to drop their drink on your shoe, it wouldn't be such a big deal with the Anne Michelle pair :)

Natasha said...

I would be a tightwad on these shoes because I don't see myself wearing them all the time and it would be a waste of money to have something so stunning and expensive, but only wear them two or three times.

Josie said...

What a fantastic match -- these would be perfect with skinny jeans! I love them.

Unbelievable find Erika! Fake suede tends to bother me when I see it in person but if these were worn at night I don't think anyone would notice--they are sooo cool!
