1. Okay yeah right.. I didn't really go out and buy YSL shoes.
2.I knew this would be a recurring themed post but I didn't think it would be this soon after the first (oh my addiction..) anyway.. here we are again!
I have longed to own a pair of sky high YSL heels ever since the celebs I love (lets be serious..stalk is a better word) started rocking them to all the fabulous events they attend, however, I have decided that I will probably never own a pair due to the fact that 1. I have no fabulous events to attend 2. They'll put you back a cool $795 which is not an option for me at my present career level (the bottom) and 3. You can get a very similar style for about $700 less. Let me explain #3.
|1. YSL "Too High Pump" in Beige Suede - $795|
|2. Pour la Victoire "Irina" Pump - $245|
|3. Kelsi Dagger "Linzy" Pump - $119|
Now to be clear, my very first pair of fancy pants “Pour la Victoire” shoes came in today and I am smitten. They are high enough to make me appear less stump-like and just the right little punch of color to brighten up whatever I wear them with (I featured the beige above to highlight their similarities but I got them in turquoise). YAY! I originally wanted them in yellow (seen here) but I decided the bold blue-green color would be just as fun but more forgiving of my sun-deprived pale legs (even my favorite tan-in-a-bottle Sublime Bronze can't save them now). I also got them for a great deal (are you guys sick of me talking about what great sales I’ve been finding yet?) They were regularly $245 but have been reduced to $99 on Piperlime.com (plus I got them on extra 10% off Tuesday = $90) and although I did get them for a great deal, I got the beige Kelsi Dagger ones at DSW for only $54 (with coups) a couple months ago. Can you see the difference? Well I have personally examined both of them closely and I cant either.
