Just Knock It Off: Ballin' on a budget

 Ciao Bellas,
Hello, my name is Seyi. And I'm addicted to shoes.



< Some of the boxes after I cleaned out the shoe section of my closet. Yay for shoe racks and more room for more shoes! =D

Y'all may or may not have noticed by now that I LOVEEEEEE shoes. I love me a hot pair of heels, and as my body shape has changed over the years (weight gain, weight loss, growing, etc) my shoes have always been faithful to me. Much like most ladies, I see tons of beautiful designer shoes online and in stores (Jimmy Choo, Louboutins, Salvatore Ferragamo *sigh* *drool*)...but they're not quite in my immediate price range at the moment. In the words of Kandi from Real Housewives of Atlanta "I ball on a budget"

A lot of times when I'm out shopping, I see lower budget versions of designer pieces that are really good quality...so I'll start sharing it here in a new series called "Just Knock It Off: Ballin' on a Budget". One place that I've found some really cute lower budget shoes (very reminiscent of past Louboutin designs) is ShoeDazzle (the shoe love of my life). A couple of years or so ago Christian Louboutin released the "Forever Tina" boots, which were being sold online at Net-A-Porter for $1,575. Sooooo not in my price range, and I soooooo wasn't able to purchase them.

Then a couple of months ago, ShoeDazzle released the Wendi boots for $49.95.


I was able to get them on sale (ShoeDazzle has AMAZING sales) for $20.

Also last spring / summer ShoeDazzle also released the Naya Sandals for $39.95

Which resemble Christian Louboutin's Ambertina's that originally retailed online at Neiman Marcus for $2,395.00.


It's not just ShoeDazzle that I find these goodies at, Charlotte Russe is a good spot to check out on the regular. So let me know what y'all think Bella's, are you interested in more of my Ballin' on a Budget Finds? Comment Below!


Stylishly Yours,
Seyi
