Tightwad Tuesday: Christian Louboutin Clou Noeud 150 Studded Slingback for a Steal

My loves, to the left prepare to swoon over Christian Louboutin’s classy Clou Noeud 150 Studded Slingbacks – the very same ones seen on Dakota Fanning, Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, and Kim Kardashian; to the right, take a peek at N.Y.L.A.’s ultra-glamorous Genevieve Slingback.

While the N.Y.L.A. stunners lack the cherry red sole so prominently displayed on the luscious Loubies; for a mere $104.95, as opposed to the $1195.00 required to add the charming Clou Noeud 150 Studded Slingback’s to your wardrobe, they are a wondrous way for the frugalista to snag a little Loubie style – at a price that allows one to indulge in not one, not two, but all three haute hues (Nude, Red Patent, and Black)!

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


Fashionably yours!

I like the toned down N.Y.L.A.'s.

ivy's closet said...

Really stunning, but I'd go for the cheaper version.

ellie said...

Really gorgeous! I think N.Y.L.A. would work for me.

The Favour Shoppe said...

I actually like the N.Y.L.A better.....and the price is great too!!

Natasha said...

BALLET NEWS said...

I feel like I NEED them.....

Natasha said...

I don't know if I would get either of them. I'm a little over studded shoes now. They are gorgeous, though.

Couture Carrie said...

Louboutins for sure on this one! If you're going to do studded heels, might as well do it right :)

amy b.s. said...

um, yes please to those shoes. both please.

Stephanie said...

If I had a huge chunk of change, I would choose Christian. Always and forever.

Eternally yours,

When I first glanced at the picture Erika, I was sure the Louboutin was going to be the black pair on the right, a holiday version for the line, haha--fooled me! If only Louboutins were comfortable for my feet! Great post, love these!

Laura said...

N.Y.L.A. definitely is a good look-a-like, but can anything really ever replace the coveted red sole?

Josie said...

Gotta go with the Louboutins... Always, haha.

Grace said...

The cheaper one is definitely suitable, but if I had the cash, I'd go with the Louboutins for sure!

Sherin said...

Amazing! I need a pair of Louboutins in my life.

About Last Weekend said...

Wow, these are a steal. Now where could I wear these???

Tights Lover said...

The CLs look a nicer, don't you think? $1k nicer? hmmmm...maybe someday...

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I hate to say it, but I have to be honest. I'm not a big fan of these shoes. I'm just not big on studs, I guess. And I'm weird about open toes and slingbacks. Sigh.

Please don't hate me.

I love you.

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

I totally like the cheaper pair more!

Clare said...

LOV the CLs! But not for that price! JEEEZ! You need to find me some blue flats for my wedding, Miss. Thang! I am on a quest for the perfect pair!

AH said...

my heart says louboutins, but my wallet says n.y.l.a!

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

Ruby Mines said...

I'll go with the NYLA & pocket the $1,090 in change to eat out for the next 30 days!

Emily said...

loving the NYLA pair! and the price too :)

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

I will definitely be saving!

Ashley said...

NYLA has my vote for this one! Loving the darker color

meg said...

Oh, I think I could live with the cheaper version. SWEET!

lucy and sarah said...

These would be so cool to have! I'm going with the cheaper ones.

Lisa Lisa Lisa said...

Wow. Very hot. But really not my style, sadly. I wish I were so daring. If I were to buy CL, I'd got with something more classic. For me, I'd scrimp on this choice!

brittany said...

i need need need a pair of loubs asap... but not those. cheap all the way! yay! i mean, $1195? seriously? that's madness!

Irina Lori said...

I don't like both of them, but if here were some shoes in my style, I would say yes to better quality ;)

FashionJazz said...

I ,love them! Would wear them in a second :) Happy Wednesday xx

Oh to Be a Muse said...

The Louboutins would be awesome to own but the NYLAs are so much more affordable.

pinkmate said...
