The Look for Less: Derek Lam Brigatta Blue Platforms

The more I see these Derek Lam Brigatta Blue Platforms, $720, the more I want to throw everything to the wind and just indulge in them. However, that is quite the hefty price tag for shoes that I would rather just admire on my vanity. Realistically, when it comes to warm weather I'm really more of a flat sandal kind of gal. Nevertheless, I wanted to share these with you because to me, this is the stuff fashion dreams are made of. As luck would have it, I was strutting along and saw a way cheaper pair of sandals that had to have been inspired by these Lam puppies.

To see the look for less,

So they may not be as fierce but these Aerosoles Chrome Body in Dark Blue, $79, look a hell of a lot more comfortable. They honor the cobalt blue trend and you have the wooden heel which is widely popular, supporting other 'It' shoes by Chloe and Michael Kors. Lastly, I feel I could dance the night away in these, rather than putting them on a pedestal, which is really just ridiculous.

Thanks for linking the Charlize pump, Shopaholic, I'm not too good at computer stuff! The look is definitely different than the Derek Lam, but as soon as I saw the Lams, I was reminded of the Cole Haans, which I have been wanting for a while now.

Aerosoles is not a brand to overlook though. They have grown by leaps and bounds since first debuting as strictly old lady shoes. They are so much more comfortable than most other shoes out there and they tend to have a lot of styles on sale.

Not too sure about the Aerosoles - they look like birkenstocks with heels to me. I think the patent is what makes it hot, definitely prefer the cole haans that were suggested though the look is different.

I agree with bhilb. The Charlize Air Pump is way cuter than the shoe from Aerosoles. Check it out here:

You should check out the Charlize Air Pump at Cole Haan in navy patent. They are not quite as cheap as the Aerosoles, but they are much cheaper than the Derek Lams, and, in my opinion, much cuter than the Aerosoles.
