At Lux & Concord, we always have our eye on the prize. The problem is that prize is often a highly unattainable (and very expensive) new item for our closet. Louboutin heels or a Chloe bag might be at the top of our “to purchase” list, but we can’t always afford the price tag that goes along with that glamour. So, we’re starting a new feature on the site called “Splurge or Save” where we highlight a designer item and then find a similar version at a much more affordable price. This way, we can keep all of you at the height of the newest trends without breaking anyone’s bank accounts (You’re welcome!)
Our first feature comes literally on the heels of a new shoe from Mr. Louis Vuitton. This new studded cap toe pump combines a few trends for spring. This upcoming season, studs and other metal embellishments will continue to be a popular way to add a hardcore edge to girly pieces, especially on accessories. Cap toe shoes will also be seen in all varieties; from these studs to contrasting colors, to pops of metal, which all add a new twist on the forever classic pump.
But if you can’t afford to dress like Alexa Chung (always totally style crush-worthy), Zara can help you out with their take on the shoe for a much more modest price. There are even more studs on this pair than the Louis’ and the flecks of black amongst the metal really bring the whole look together, for under $100. They’d be perfect to spice up a little black dress or wear out on the town with some cigarette pants.
Look for more “Splurge or Save” posts in upcoming weeks, and if you have a lust-worthy object you’d like us to track down at a more lovely price, let us know! We’d be happy to do the digging for you.
