The Look For Less: Gucci Black Patent Sandals

Frida Giannini sent some fierce patent sandals down Gucci's Spring '08 runway. It comes in black and gold, and would make any leg look fantastic. But for $695, I can buy five pairs of less-expensive shoes. . .

To see the look for less,

I'm so thankful for Nine West for coming out with these Olavera Sandals ($89). They also come in black and gold, and would make any leg look equally stunning. They may not be as long-lasting as the Gucci version, but for that price, I'm sure you won't mind!

I saw these a few months back. I loved them so much I ripped the picture out of a magazine. I would love to buy the real ones because they look much better. Hopefully, I can get them in France this summer. Wish me luck!!!

The Nine West version is sold out until May 27th! I'm still going to get them though. And the heel is the same height as the Gucci heel (both 4"). I think the Gucci just looks higher because of the angle, and who knows what size the model is wearing. Of course I want the Gucci ones more, but I'm saving $600!

In a continuous state of reaching for things above my height, I would purchase these uncomfortable things. Otherwise, I'll keep it at the "pretty to look at" category.

I like the Gucci ones better. The cheaper one has a lower heel and it doesn't look AS hot. ;)
