Hi vs. Low ft. BlueFly and DSW

Hello. My name is Minnie and I am a shoeaholic! But really, what girl isn’t???

This weekend I went shopping for a shoe-shelf in an effort to contain my massive collection. To reward myself for all my hard work, I went hunting for a new pair! I checked out two of my favorite sites to shop for shoes, DSW and BlueFly. I love both these companies; their selection of shoes are second to none and their motto’s are the same…..to bringing shoes, clothes and accessories to the masses for a fraction of the retail price!

As I was browsing on BlueFly, I saw a pair of Jimmy Choo booties that looked so much like a pair of Heart and Soul booties I got from DSW, I had to do a double take and it got me thinking, how many other shoes could I find at DSW that looked similar to shoes I could find on BlueFly? And the challenge was born!

Below are some high end shoes and their low end look-a-likes plus a few tips to help you take a high end designer shoe and find its more affordable counterpart!

 

Tip one: Look for shoes that have a similar shape and color!

There will be times that you just luck up and find a high end and low end shoe that look so much alike you will have to do a double take!

Jimmy Choo ($789.99)         Heart and Soul ($44.95-sale price)

 

Tip Two: Look for shoes that have similar embellishment!

If you can’t find a dead on exact match, look for shoes in the same color family and with like embellishments!

Badgley Mischka ($129.00)                 Audrey Brooke ($59.95)

 

 

Tip Three: Look for shoes that are similar in shape and have “like” prints.

Its not always about finding a dead on match. A low end shoe with the same shape and pattern story as a high end shoe can work just as well!

Thanks SO much for reading!
