Tightwad Tuesday: Christian Louboutin Bibi 140 Suede Platform Pumps for Pennies

Darlings, to your left you will find Christian Louboutin’s blissful Bibi 140 Suede Platform Pumps – the very same piece of frippery seen donned by Lauren Conrad, Isla Fisher, Blake Lively, Khloe Kardashian, Katy Perry, and Brooklyn Decker; now, if you’ll take a peek to the right, you will find BCBGeneration’s jaw-dropping Jodie High Heel in Black.

Though Jodie’s heel clocks in at 5”, as opposed to the teetering 5 ½” of the luscious Louboutin’s; for a mere $89.00, in comparison to the $795.00 needed to take Bibi home, they are every bit as capable of allowing the savvy stylista to snag a little starlet style – on a budget!

Are you having a tightwad moment darlings, or are you plagued with a craving to splurge?


Fashionably yours!

Awesome shoe. I'm on the cheap.

Oh my! So glad you've found a cheaper version. Love the tightwad post!

Pratishtha Durga said...

It's unbelievable how similar they are, at least in the pictures. I am cash strapped right now, and style for less is my perpetual motto. Thanks for sharing.

Great find as always Erika! If the bcbg ones are at all comfortable I would vote for them--I just sold my brand new platform pump Louboutins on ebay because they hurt my feet so much I could never wear them out!

Hoping you will please find some good flat/mid-heels to feature soon!

Let's see... I'm not married, don't have kids, so I deserve a bit of luxury in life. Don't you think so?! :P

The BCBGeneration looks nearly exactly the same.

But either ways, I can't wear high heels because I can't walk in them. lol!

Audrey Allure said...

Gorgeous! I actually have a similar pair that I got for less than $40 at GoJane!

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

The Louboutins!

Maddy said...

The BCBG pair is an exact replicate! Plus, they make great shoes, so I would go with the cheaper pair for sure!

Dancing Branflake said...

Man, you always know what stars wear what. You definitely have your finger on the celebrity pulse.

Alexa said...

BCBG! :)

Punctuation Mark said...

The Blonde Duck said...

Do you watch Guilana and Bill on Style? Did you see the one where she tries on Christian Loubiatons and is like, "This is so much better than a book?"

J said...

DEFINITELY BCBG pair, would love to own the louboutins but obvs my wallet cannot afford that!

Tights Lover said...

I do love BCBGeneration. But how can I ever pick against Christian Louboutin?

Jennifer Fabulous said...

The perfect pair of pumps! If I had the money, I would splurge. After all, black pumps are an investment piece! ;)

Josie said...

I love, LOVE the Loubs, but I don't know if even I could handle 5.5 inches!

Louboutins are of course priceless, but the BCBG's do look like a great alternative!

Almost identical so I say definitely go for the cheaper pair.
