Get the Look for Less!

Get The Look For Less!
Ok so most of us gals have seen the magazines that have the articles “the look for less” right? The usually have a really high priced outfit with expensive designer pieces on one side of the page and then the other side of the page is a similar looking ensemble made up of less expensive, but still name brand and good quality, pieces. Well we at The Urban Shoe Myth know that most of us can’t afford most of the YSL, Jimmy Choo, Lanvin and the always sought after Christian Louboutin shoes that grace the pages of our favourite magazines so we decided that we would form our own little “look for less” article and share it with you!

The first look we have for you is a tall leather boot with a hidden wedge. The more expensive of the two is from Lanvin and it costs $1090. Our look-a-like comes from Dolce Vita and costs $425.

Next we have a grey, suede, mid length boot with a wedge. Our more expensive look comes from Jil Sander at $745. Our version is by Rosegold and was originally $285 and are now on sale for $142.50.

So next time you open the glossy pages of your Vogue magazine and find yourself drooling over the very beautiful, very expensive shoes inside just remember…they are not always out of your reach. You can still find good quality, name brand shoes that look identical to the famous designer ones for a fraction of the price!
