Splurge Vs Save

‘Spikes’ being huge this season, I couldn’t help but create a post for all my lovely readers on how to dive into the trend, with and without a budget. Being black on black, Christian Louboutin’s Lady Peep Spikes will serve to be the ideal choice for those who are a little hesitant in donning the trend. The spikes are there but rather understated. The platform is at a height of approx 2″ whereas the heel height is a good 5.9″ approx.

And for all my budget friendly divas, you’re in luck! Steve Madden’s AWWSOME pump proves to be a brilliant choice. There’s a very slight difference in the heel height where the platform height is 1″ and the heel height is 5.5″.

Happy shopping!

Colin Stuart, known to design shoes for Victoria’s Secret has designed a very similar pair that retails for around $78.
Which of these pair is more to your liking?
