Comparison: Color Block Heels

It may only be February, but I’m ready for warm weather. Since I have no power over the forecast, I will instead take this time to plan all the pretty things I want to wear once it heats back up.

Nothing says palm trees and Mai Tais quite like these color block sandals from BCBG:

Capture Capture2

Runway Hex Color-Blocked Sandal from BCBG Maxazria

These sandals are bold and have a futuristic edge about them, which I love. Plus, look at that heel! I love a metallic heel and don’t even get me started on that cutout! Sadly, they’re $325, which is just a bit out of my price range.
Okay, it’s a lot out of my price range.

Since when has that stopped me?

Below, I have compiled a few options for us girls on a budget:

Samaria Ivory Sandals from Jessica Simpson

$88 (was $98)

These are definitely more retro/disco and not so futuristic, but they have the light base color with bright accent colors, which is what you want in a great warm weather shoe. If a metallic heel is not your thing, then this faux-wood heel is a perfect match. Not only that, but it has a T-strap, which I think can be so sexy AND comfortable!

3-Strap Sueded Heel Bootie from Charlotte Russe

$20 (was $38.50) 
These are selling fast!

This is a two-tone sueded bootie with a peep toe, side zipper, and a few metallic stud accents. When you want a little more coverage but still want some color in your life, these babies are for you.

 

V357997

Mary Jane Platform Pump from Victoria’s Secret

$98 (Additional discounts given for online orders)

These sexy Mary Jane’s have a super high heel and beautiful vibrant colors, as well as an ankle strap and peep toe. The price is a bit on the high side, but Victoria’s Secret always has deals on online orders to bring that number down.

 

V360738

Peep-toe Sling-back Sandal from Victoria’s Secret

$68 (Additional discounts given for online orders)

These sling-backs combine vintage and modern into on great shoe. If the neon yellow scares you a bit, not to worry! They have plenty of other color combinations to choose from.

Eclectic Company Heel from ModCloth

$67.99

This is definitely a quirky shoe, but I love it all the same. ModCloth has some of the greatest and most unusual shoes that almost always have a vintage flair. This has a great criss-cross strap, and the heel detail is fabulous.

 

Screen Shot 2013-02-13 at 12.23.22 AM

Aquarium Fantasy Wedge from ModCloth

$47.99

This last pair is my absolute FAVORITE. It’s to die for. First off, they couldn’t have chosen a better name for this beautifully designed wedge. These shoes are living in a dream world, and I’m on the next flight. These would look so great with super skinny jeans or a cute mini skirt. I know I say that I need to buy shoes a lot, but I really REALLY need this pair. It completely steals the show in this line-up.

Red Hot Love

It’s time for those red hot Valentine shoes! And even better, they’re all under $50!

That’s less than most Valentine’s flowers. And I don’t know about you, but I’ll take shoes over flowers any day.

Comparison: Giuseppe Zanotti vs. My Rent

I stumbled upon this gorgeous, ridiculously sexy Giuseppe Zanotti sandal:

8250882_fpx

It’s so beautiful, I think I might cry.

8250880_fpx

Oh, wait, no. I’m crying because I just saw the price tag.

For those of you who like finding even more reasons to be sad on a Monday afternoon, here’s the damage:

Giuseppe Zanotti Platform Sandals – Alien High Heel

$1,095.00

Yowza.

Ok, well, let’s not freak out. As tempting as it may be to skip rent this month just so you can have your very own pair, don’t do it. Slowly back away from the credit card stash. It’s time to be creative!

I decided to spend my lunch break finding brands who made similar styles, and we are in luck! Check ’em out below:


PHYLICIA_RED_B_SIDE-detailPHYLICIA_BLACK_A_SIDE-hero-detail

Phylicia from Shoe Dazzle

$47.95

Now, that’s a lot more manageable. It has the similar laser cut-outs, and you can even get it in red. The heel on this one is slightly adventurous, but come on, we’re already past that.


VC

Criss-Cross Sandal from Victoria’s Secret

$78

If what you’re really after is a similar heel-height and color, this sandal is perfect. It’s a more simple shape with less cut-outs, but still very sexy. It also comes in a variety of colors.

27_didina_53_6

27_didina_97_6

Didina from Aldo Shoes

$79.98

This sandal brings back the laser cut-outs, slim heel, and bold color. I’m not sure how I feel about the red/fuchsia combo, but it is the most similar to the Giuseppe Zanotti. Plus, you can also get it in black!



CR

Caged Velvet Color Block Sandal from Charlotte Russe

$38.50 (plus an extra 20% off for a limited time)

For a much more affordable option, we’ve got this coral and turquoise combo. Although I have to say, for the same price, you can buy this style which I like a whole lot more:

CR-2

Strappy Color Block Platform Pump from Charlotte Russe

Our last two options are flats. It’s always good to have a flat option for those casual days.


ModCloth

Don’t Mind Atoll Sandal from ModCloth

$39.99

This carries that same cut-out, but as a flat sandal as a more comfortable and casual option.

VC-flat

Laser Cut Flat Sandal, Colin Stuart, from Victoria’s Secret

$58

Another laser-cut flat sandal. Available in pink and sand.

Hopefully you can find a pair that works for you. Be sure to send me llinks to any other similar styles you might find at michele.shoecloset@gmail.com!

Christian Siriano from the Runway

As most of you probably already know, I love Christian Siriano. Love love love him. I loved him when he was on Project Runway, and I love him even more as a shoe designer for Payless. For us girls on a budget, we don’t have the luxury of dropping hundreds of dollars on a single pair of shoes. But that doesn’t mean we can’t look like we did.

Here are some looks straight from the runway, all the way to Payless for us budget girls to snatch up.

Oh, and let’s not forget one other little piece of information:

Bogo

Yep. That’s pretty much the best thing ever. Moving on.

CynthiaSling

Women’s Cynthia Sling

$54.99

Seriously, I can’t take it anymore. This slingback is gorgeous.

PolinaBow

Women’s Polina Bow Flat

$42.99

If you’re into the adorable pattern on the Cynthia sling and you wanted flats instead (or if you want both, like me!) they’ve got a super cute flat with some attitude.

CamileBow

Women’s Camile Bow Flat

$26.99

For something a bit tamer, bit with a nice green pop

HadleyTStrap

Women’s Hadley T-Strap Pump
