Real vs. Steal

Real vs. Steal- The Valentino Rockstud

One of the biggest complaints I’ve heard from friends and fellow fashion lovers is that they can’t dress the way they’d like to, because they can’t afford the kind of fashions they like.

With so many fashion bloggers toting Valentino shoes and Givenchy bags, I can understand the frustration. But, you don’t have to shell out your entire life’s savings towards your wardrobe to dress nice, and find inspiration in these high-end brands. There’s always more affordable options, that look just as nice.

The Valentino Rockstud Heels vs. BCBGeneration Darron Heels.

The Rockstud heels are a new staple for every fashionista’s closet these days. I can totally see why. They’re beautiful shoes, and they add a little something to every outfitΒ I’ve seen them paired with.

However, the real deal Valentino Rockstud heels are very expensive. With a price point at about $1,360 CAD at Nordstrom, it’s not a reasonable shoe for most buyers.

An alternative shoe I found, (and also bought for myself!), are BCBGeneration’s Darron pump. They also feature the flashy studs of Valentino’s infamous shoes, and come in a large variety of colours, as well. They’re very comfortable, easy to walk in, and a lot more affordable for the average buyer, at around $95 CAD at DSW.

You can find both heels here:

This is a series of posts I plan to continue with a different variety of luxury vs. affordable products for people to explore.

I hope you’re all having a wonderful Monday! πŸ™‚
