The Look for Less: Marc by Marc Jacobs Patent Bow Pumps

I hate to do this to one of my favorites but I must report it! Whilst shopping Macy's show department last week I did a double take with these Marc by Marc Jacobs shoes - I could have sworn I just saw them on the other side of the store. In the cheaper shoe section no less. I thought it was so obviously a Look for Less. While I have a soft spot for Marc shoes, the cheaper pair of shoes I saw were pretty darn cute too. This style is pretty classic, with its 40s peep toe pump persona. The argument could go both ways, but when I splurge on Marc shoes I like them to be something special. Something a bit out of the ordinary. Nonetheless, it's your call.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Ribbon Peep-Toe Pump in black, $360.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Shoes Leather Peep Toe Pump in white, $360.

To see this look for less,

These AK Anne Klein "Demos" Peeptoe Pump, $85, are pretty similar and you could buy both colors to equal the amount of one of the pairs of Marcs! They come in black and white and have that lovely peep toe, to let some cherry red toes poke through. They have similar piping and bow detailing and they both have cute lining on the inside. Hmmm, floral print or gold vs. polka dots, that's a hard call. Lastly, they both have that fab sturdy conical heel.

I love white shoes from Marc. They are soooooo cute. I love peep toe shoes with ribbon.

Although the Marc by Marc Jacobs are a little bit out of my price range, my mantra is "Treat Yourself SOMETIMES". With that said, I'm loving the cream with the black bowtie. PS: Sofi, have you ever tried Loehmann's on Wisconsin Avenue in DC (I love "meeting" fellow Metro area folks) they have fabulous designer clothing and fab prices!!!

Sigh. I wear 10 narrow, and even narrow is sometimes too wide. I hate my feeties. I covet adorable peep-toe pumps, but it's never meant to be.

I love them. They're out of my price range for now but I still really like them. Maybe they'd have them at DSW for less than the $85 they cost at Bloomingdales. I'm checking out the Wal-Mart site, RainbowCrayon.

My "AK Anne Klein Lavine" shoes are sold out at Zappos but someone might be able to find them somewhere else- great shoe and look so much like the Marc ones.

I actually bought a very similar version of Anne Klein's (patent, peep-toe, bow and piping) back in December from Zappos for only 60 dollars and they were the best shoes I bought this year. They look so much like this high end version. Now I am even more psyched about them!!

Thank you! I was lusting for the Marc Jacobs ones, but I might actually be able to get the Anne Klein. They really do look almost identical, and who's going to see the lining when they're on your feet? Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
