Splurge vs. Steal: Stuart Weitzman Corkswoon Wedge

I first mentioned these Stuart Weitzman Corkswoon Wedges in my post about Kate Middleton’s Royal Style. I am a huge fan of The Duchess’ style (we Duchesses have to stick together!) and have been eyeing these wedges since they made their debut in the 2012 Olympics and on the Jubilee Tour. Kate still wears these beauties, most recently in Australia, and has styled them with many different outfits.

As awesome as these shoes are, they cost $398 which isn’t really in the budget. When Kate first started wearing these wedges Stuart Weitzman sold out of them quickly, but now they seem to keep the navy ones in regular supply. As far as looks for less goes, they have been more difficult to find. Any similar shoes seem to sell out quickly, but I am determined to get this look!

After many hours searching for a steal for the Corkswoon wedges, I finally found a good one. These Anna & Zero Platform Waterproof Wedge Pumps are only $40.99 on Amazon. I am going to get a pair for myself and will let you know what I think. They look pretty darn good and you can’t beat the price compared to $398 for the real thing.

4. Jimmy Choo Look for Less

Now, let’s pretend for a minute that my foot’s not broken and I’m not in a walking boot. The Jimmy Choo Leila shoes have been on my list for quite some time. They are pretty much the hottest shoes I have ever seen. Unfortunately, they are sold out. I have scoured eBay for them but they only have the brown ones. Fast forward to last night, when I was out at an event and saw a girl wearing them. Of course I went up to her and asked her if those were the Jimmy Choo shoes and where she found them. She told me that they weren’t Jimmy Choos and she got them on sale at DSW. I immediately went online to hunt these amazing look-a-likes down. They are the Caparros Dalton Sandal for $39.94. Just take a look – on the top we have the Jimmy Choos and on the bottom, the Caparros:
