Splurge Vs. Save: Leopard Print Loafers

          One emerging trend I'm absolutely loving is leopard print, especially leopard print slip-on loafers! It seems like these graceful wild-things are gracing the feet of everyone from celebs to some of my favorite bloggers, and they truly leave me a little envious! Ofcourse I'd love a pair, but I can't get away with buying shoes for $130+.
     So imagine how happy I was to find two fantastic and less expensive versions of these gorgeous loafers! I literally jumped around from joy, because now the dream slippers are literally in my reach!
     But, I know that a lot of other people would love a pair as well, so I thought to share the news and the saves with you! You can be the judge of whether you like the splurge(the more expensive pairs), or the saves(the less expensive pairs) best!

Save vs. Splurge

The Splurges: Three absolutely gorgeous pairs, but sadly they're just a little bit out of my reach. Especially since I really want the shoes now, or the near future (ie: tomorrow). These three pairs are from Charles Philip, Dolce Vita, and J. Crew. The quality of these shoes is absolutely gorgeous, and I really like them all! My favorite is the second pair, which is from Dolce Vita.


The Saves: Here's my forte. These two equally gorgeous pairs are definitely in my reach, and one is by Bamboo and my favorite out of the two is the pair from Lulus (if you follow me on twitter, you know I had the greatest freakout ever when I found these!). Though at first my favorite pair was definitely the one by Wanted from Lulus, i keep changing my mind! Because actually, I really like the pair from Bamboo as well! I love how its colors pop, and it's such a close match to the splurges. With that said, the pair from Lulus, has that real "fur" look, which makes them appealing as well. This is gonna be a tough decision! The pair from Bamboo's price dropped a little, they are now $18!

So, thats the situation in the case of the leopard print loafers! Hopefully I'll have a pair by the end of the week, because I've really put them on the top of my wishlist. Which would you do, splurge or save?

I love leopard print and I love loafers, so loving the 2 together. I would definitely save though: I doubt I would get too much wear out of them.

Tariro said...

Yup, i'm definitely going down the save lane!

Taryn said...

They are all great, and I really love to save, but I have an unusually narrow foot--hmmmm, have to do some trying on =)

I have to say that even if I've always had mixed feelings about animal print, I think I'm 'converted' when it comes to accessories. I really like leopar-print loafers and I tried a lovely pair, which was too expensive...For these kind of trendy items, I would prefer to go for 'budget' option...

Thank you very much for your comment that introduced me to your blog, really nice!
