Tightwad Tuesday: Givenchy Platform Pump for Pennies

My loves, to the left take in the glamour that is Givenchy’s Platform Pump – the very same ones seen on Ms. Katie Cassidy on Gossip Girl; to the right brace yourself for the beauty of Nine West’s stunning Showstoper in Black Leather.

While the Nine West wonders lack the Givenchy label; for a mere $119.00, as opposed to the $700.00+ price tag of their couture cousins, they are le perfect compromise for the cheap chica – and allow one to scoop up not one, not two, not three, but all four saucy shades (Black Leather, Dark Brown Box Leather, Black Suede, and Dark Red Suede)!

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


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Barney’s and Zappos for the pictures.

Givenchy. The nine west ones are a bit to shiny for my liking ;)

Nine West has been doing such a great job with shoes (even if it is pure plagiarism!)

Dancing Branflake said...

There's a hilarious scene from Will and Grace where Karen goes to Will's basement office and goes "what a horrible view! You just sit all day and watch bad shoes go by. See, look! I just saw a pair of Nine West."
After that scene I immediately got self conscious about my many pairs of Nine West shoes. But I love them!

You know I always lean toward the expensive side of things, but the Nine West shoes are really close to the Givenchy's.

Nine West!

Natasha said...

I like both Nine West and Givenchy quite a bit, but surprisingly I don't like either of those shoes. Sorry for being brutally honest. :)

OneCraftyFox said...

There is something about the big ticket that I prefer on this one... can't quite put my finger on it. Perhaps it is the level of shine?

Grace said...

These are cute! I'd love the Givenchy's, but the Nine West one's are a good price for the look.

WendyB said...

That's a nice shoe!

meg said...

Such a classic! A great find!

karen said...

I love both, but my wallet screams Nine West. The classic lines around the shoes are perfect.

adriangravem said...

StyleIDnet said...

What a great find I cannot believe the price difference, I can take the Nine West on this ones, they are identical and love how Nine West fits.

I love the way the heel tapers down in both versions. A true classic pump!

Rick said...

Erika!!! I love the new look of the blog. It's hot...just like both pairs of those shoes! It still amazes me how you come up with these selections without fail. Hope all is well on the West Coast! xo
