Tightwad Tuesday: Miu Miu Powder Patent Crisscross Platform Sandal for a Steal

Darlings, to your left you will find Miu Miu’s majestic Powder Patent Crisscross Platform Sandal; to the right take a peek at Jessica Simpson’s Ethereal Endo in Nude Patent.

Though the Miu Miu marvels sport a 4 ¼” heel, and ¾” platform, as opposed to the 5 ¼” heel and 1 ½” platform of Endo; for just $67.15, in comparison to the $595.00 needed to make the Miu Miu’s your own, they are le perfect compromise for the frugal fashionista – and allow the budget babe to scoop up not one, not two, but all three stunning shades (Nude Patent, Lunar Grey Patent, and Black Dream Nappa)!

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!

Gorgeous shoes, loving the Jessica Simpson ones. Her shoes are actually pretty great!

I love the Miu Mius. The Jessica Simpson shoes seem a little too shiny for my tastes. Enjoy your day.

Couture Carrie said...

I'm so in love with this blog! I read it every time you post... because I also have a shoe obsession (Living in an 800 sq ft appartment with my man means that all my shoes occupy an entire dresser!) and my books are taking over the book shelves!

Question: What type of books do you enjoy? If you could recommend one to me, what would it be? I'm looking for my next great read!

i like the colour and platform on the miu miu pair better, but the jessica simpson ones are gorgeous, too!

Jessica said...

These are lovely shoes! I have to say, I actually think that I like the Jessica Simpson shoes better for some reason (the price doesn't hurt either!).

always a great comparison but the miu miu look better.

Savvy Gal said...

I like Miu Miu more in this case because the style is more simple with cleaner lines.

Why not go for a little extra height and a little less cash?

I'm liking the Endo!

Krystal said...

Belly B said...

I like the Jessica Simpson one, but I have to be honest. I actually prefer the Miu Miu one!!! But there's no way I'm going to pay for it haha :)

<3 Belly B

Sherin said...

About Last Weekend said...

Wonderful match! My nude shoes are the best thing I've ever bought and I might be tempted to buy these cheaper lovelies with the hint of pink...

bachman's sparrow said...

Why are you so good at this?! hahaha! I have a nude pair of strappy heels that are my favorite shoes :)

xoxo Maria

Kavery said...

I like the colour of the cheaper ones though the Miu Miu's may be more comfortable

Like the new layout, Erika! I think I'd be fine with the Jessica Simpson's, too, although the Miu Miu's sure are fabulous!

Deb said...

I live for your Tightwad Tuesdays. Great shoe and having owned some Jessica Simpson styles I would totally go for the steal instead of the splurge.

Can't wait to see what you have for us next Tuesday!

Can't do JS. I haven't forgiven her for dumping Nick.

heatherheartsfashion said...

what really makes the miu miu ones great is the thicker heel, and jessica's failed on that front, so i would definitely have to go with the miu mius

Kristin said...

I totally dig the Jessica Simpsons! She makes some fabulous shoes!

Style with Benefits said...

Another great find; how do you do it?! Ah, I do prefer the Miu Miu shoes but my wallet prefers the JS ones.

xx, becs

Tere said...
