Splurge vs. Steal: Schutz Juliana Caged Sandals

I have seen these shoes everywhere and they are hot! What a great heel for summer, wedding season, etc. Celebrities are sporting the Schutz Juliana Caged Sandals right and left, you can see them on Jennifer Lawrence, Hillary Duff, Solange, and Michelle Monaghan to name a few.

I had never heard of the Schutz brand before I looked up who made these shoes. The brand is based in Brazil and was created in 1995. The Juliana Caged Heel runs about $190 which isn’t bad if you are looking for a splurge. The heel is 5 inches, but the laser cut outs definitely take them up a notch. If you want to test them out for a steal enter Target with the Mossimo Kylea Caged Heel Strappy Gladiator Pumps lookalikes for only $34.99!

I think I may need to head up to Target and get these for myself!

Do you have a splurge that you want me to find a steal for? Let me know in the comments. Or let me know if you find another steal for the Schutz Juliana Caged Sandals.

5 on Friday: Oscars Best Dressed Edition

It’s time for another edition of Five on Friday with A Liz AdventuresThe Good Life BlogHello Happiness and Carolina Charm.


The Academy Awards were last Sunday and we saw some amazing outfits. I fell in love with a few looks and it reminded me of Gwyneth Paltrow’s pink Ralph Lauren Dress at the 1999 Academy Awards. I loved that dress and actually purchased a look for less that I wore on a cruise after graduation.

52438026This inspired me to pick my top favorite looks from Sunday’s awards and find a great look for less. Here are my top picks:

1. Lupita Nyong in Prada

This was by far my favorite dress of the evening, It is just stunning and so feminine. I found this Faviana chiffon dress with a beaded belt ($438):

I recently stumbled across this Donna Morgan Julie Twist Gown ($230) that would also be a great match:

2. Sandra Bullock in Alexander McQueen

I love navy and this look was sleek and elegant. This JS Collections Dress ($209) is just as sleek as Sandy’s look:
