Tightwad Tuesday: Christian Louboutin Miss Fast Ankle Boots on a Budget

8.30.2011

Lovers, to the left take a peek at Christian Louboutin’s mesmerizing Miss Fast Ankle Boots – the very same ones seen worn by Blake Lively, Alex Curran, and Jenna Dewan; now, if you’ll glance to the right, you shall find Nine West’s glamorous Gracious in Black Leather.

Though the Nine West wonders lack the signature red leather sole of the Loubies, and sport a heel that is a full inch shorter than that of the 5 ¼” seen on the luscious Louboutin’s; for just $98.10, in comparison to the $995.00 needed to speed up your shoe collection with the addition of Miss Fast, they are an exemplary way to snag a little star style on a shoestring budget – and allow one enough spare change to add all five haute hues to their wardrobe (Black Leather, Taupe Leather, Black Suede, Red Suede, and Dark Grey Leather)!

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


Fashionably yours!

The cheaper one is nice but I can't pass up owning my own Louboutin's one day. That red sole is too gorgeous! =)

Oh, I think the Nine West would be much more practical.

No matter what, if I can afford Louboutins, I am getting them.

Maddy said...

The Louboutin’s are so much sleeker than the Nine West pair. If I had the money to splurge, those are the ones I'd choose :)

Natasha said...

I would choose the Louboutins because they're simply Louboutins. I love the way they look, but it's the red soles that are driving me crazy.

Josie said...

I adore the Louboutins -- a much more streamlined look -- but the Nine West ones aren't a bad option!

I like the look of the Louboutins more, but they are SO not in my price range :)

Katherine said...

I love the Louboutins but the NW pair are very close (and the price is so much nicer!) Thank you for sharing :)

AH said...

great find, but i'd still have to go for the louboutins!

Taj Acosta said...

Loubs all the way, they look sleeker and I love the lines better! xo -Taj

Tights Lover said...

Can't go against the Louboutin's. I'm afraid I'd get hit by a lightning bolt or something!

Cheapo, :)

Cafe Pasadena said...

I'm just curious what we extra for the extra $887 spent??

Alexa said...

meg said...

I just love the design! I'm thinking the cheaper one might be my only possibility of having these shoes.

Sherin said...

Those Louboutins look so classic. I need them in my wardrobe.

Grace said...

Cute ankle boots! The Louboutins are pretty fabulous, though...

Oh to Be a Muse said...

so glad nine west has a version of these shoes now because they are totally amazing, and now quite affordable.

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

great find, darling! love them! xo

Kavery said...

Nine West please. I like their shoes a lot

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

I cannot get over how you keep finding items for your tight-wad roundup! I would definitely have to go with the Nine West pair, though.

Midnight Cowgirl said...

Wish I could afford the Louboutins, but the pair from Nine West is a great find!

Clare said...

I am girl, so of COURSE I am partial to the CL ones -- however, I am also cheap, so the least expensive shoe is what i would ultimately buy haha

Diana said...

They are very similar and I always love the cheaper price...but I think the Louboutins look a little more chic. But I would no way pay that for a shoe! :) To each their own!

Fashion Tales.... said...

The look, brand & the feel- Louboutins, of course! But, the Nine West ones may be more comfortable, lol As always great findings dear! xo

Mary Jo at TrustYourStyle said...

Considering the most painful shoes I've ever had on my feet were my Louboutins, I'd go the tightwad route, and love that it's not as high. But do wish it had the red sole :)

Schnappy said...

Cool shoes! I like first, cool red!:)

MM said...

In terms of design, I am for both of them but in term of price.....probably I would buy the cheaper version..:(

Hugs and kisses

Ramblings of a Redhead said...

awesome find!

Mimi said...

to be honest, i really want the louboutins because of course they are louboutins. but i'd probably end up buying the more affordable version. ;)

I scrolled through your blog, and I love these posts with less expensive versions of designer items! Both of these shoes are gorgeous. The Louboutins are stunning, of course. But the Nine West ones are a good compromise! They're so edgy!
