The Look for Less

When I first spied the images from the Spring 09 Louis Vuitton runway show I was fit to be tied. I knew there was no way I could afford that shoe that we saw over and over again. But that certainly didn't stop me from wishing, and hoping, and praying. I absolutely adored the mish mash of details. The mix of textures, and prints, and embellishments from feathers, to stones, to jewels somehow managed to just work rather than look over the top.

Alas, I thought this would be a shoe I would have to simply admire from afar but thanks to the lovely folks over at Bebe I can now have a pair of my very own. Well at least a very similar version and that is a. o.k. by me. Check it out!

Katrin Leather Exotic Sandal

OMG! I was so excited when I saw these. Bebe does an amazing job here and the price is just right. I mean these have all of the right elements for a fraction of the price. The platform is perfection. The studs, the jewel, the turquoise beads, the feather... ugh! They will be mine. Oh yes. They will be mine. Hahahahahaha (that is the sound of maniacal laughter you hear). Seriously folks. This is one hot shoe. I can't wait to get them.

Of course I had to come check out the Bebe version of the Louie! They really do a quality job. This pair could walk down the runway with the others, none the wiser. Thanks for the comment on my page :) I am new to this blogging thing!
