Tightwad Tuesday: Yves Saint Laurent Palais Suede Platform Pumps for Pennies

Dolls, in the left corner plant your kohl-rimmed peepers upon Yves Saint Laurent’s pretty Palais Suede Platform Pumps – the very same stunners seen donned by Vanessa Hudgens, Carrie Mulligan, Heidi Klum, Alexa Chung, Olivia Palermo, and Jessica Simpson; in the right corner take in the amazingness that is Kelsi Dagger’s Abrielle in Royal Blue.

Though Abrielle is a slightly paler hue than that of the posh Palais; for just $129.00, in comparison to the $720.00 price tag of le Yves Saint Laurent lovely, they are every bit as capable of lending a sprinkling of star style to your shoe collection – at a price fit for a frugalista!

Tell me, kittens…will you be a big spender and go for Yves Saint Laurent, or be thrifty and spring for Kelsi Dagger?


Fashionably yours!

I would have to go for the steal..just because. Very cool find.

mazzy may said...

Oh, I love them, but I can't see me ever wearing them. If I did, I know I'd fall.

Natasha said...

I would go for both, honestly, because the intensity of the blue is different. These heels are lavish and I really like them. Good find, E. I hope your Halloween was fun!

Rachel said...

I just love the blue of the YSL pair. It's perfect! I'd splurge on these! :)

AH said...

the shade of blue on the ysl ones is perfection, but i like the shape of the kelsi dagger ones better... plus, my wallet likes them better, so i'd be thrifty! :p

Ashley said...

If I wasn't already so tall I would gladly rock those YSL pumps! The color is gorgeous!

creativefashionglee said...

I love the Yves version. It´s deep blue is more striking. I heart its more vibrant hue. :)

Dancing Branflake said...

They are both an awesome shape but I do like the more vibrant color of Yves Saint Laurent.

Hope you had an awesome Halloween!

These are such a good replica--although the hue of blue is really quite something. I was just in the YSL store this weekend and everything is so beautifully made. Although blue shoes are quite the splurge! Great find Erika!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

These are fab. I don't know if it's because of the lighting, but I prefer the darker color of the YSL pumps.

Mani said...

I am still droling over those shoes! I even saw one pair at Guess store!

Islandia Lane said...

these are so similar! not sure if I'd personally buy this shoe but I love the blue and I just recently saw the AMcQ punk ones with the skull - adore.

amy b.s. said...

Both are gorg! I'd go for the bargain unless I was of monumental wealth. Then I'd have to go for YSL

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

I like how bold the YSL's coloring looks.

Susu Paris Chic said...

YSL sans hesitation. A gal just has to have some killer heels. Electricity is in the air!

I like the richer hue of the Yves Saint blue heel but Id much rather take the price of the Kelsi!

I hope you had a great Halloween!
