steal? splurge?


First, I need to send a HUGE thank you to everyone who read my post last week. Your comments were so sweet, and I feel like a lucky lady that people still read this thing. 

Now onto shoe things...

Okay, okay...I know I said I'd only publish "original" content, so sue me. This was a splurge or steal I just had to share with you. I do promise to publish original content 95% of the time, but I also have 5% of me that just loves posting pretty things. I do 100% promise that when I do post pretty things, I won't go out and buy it the next day. End rant.

So, this edition of splurge or steal is the infamous Harrow Bootie from Rag & Bone (bottom), and the Arieel Bootie from Steve Madden (top). I'll admit, I bought the Rag & Bone booties last year, and as soon as the $495 hit my credit card I realized I made a DUMB choice (#blamebloggers), and I swiftly returned them.  

And I'm SO happy I did. Because now I can get the look I love for a fraction of the price. 

Steve Madden @ $129.99
Rag & Bone @ $495

It's a no brainer really. I mean the R&B's are beautiful, and if you can afford them, props to you. I cannot afford them, so I'll just stare at your feet in envy and enjoy my Steve Maddens. #Booyah

I'm so happy you are back to blogging!! And I can absolutely relate to the points you made in your last post! Haha I've been lusting after these Rag and Bone booties for months now!! I had no idea Steve Madden had similar one's!! I'm definitely going to click them home and pat myself on the back for saving about 300$!! Thank's for the tip! :)

I somehow missed your last post and had to go back and read it--loved it! So many good points. Also, have you seen Target's version of those booties? Thirty-five bucks! http://www.target.com/p/women-s-mossimo-kiriana-ankle-boot-with-leather-wrap-assorted-colors/-/A-14654477#prodSlot=medium_1_3&term=kiriana+ankle+boot

Dude. keep on posting pretty things. I love the Steve Madden version!! Admittedly, I have the Rag & Bones from last year... I bought them with a gift card that I earned from working with a brand and love how comfy they are. But these are a no brainer. Good find!

As pretty as the Rag & Bone ones are, I definitely like the Steve Madden ones better. They are just as cute but that price point makes all the difference. Wouldn't it be nice if we could buy everything we post?
