Splurge vs. Steal: Huarache Inspired Sandals

I’m really excited about this post, because it’s the first of a new series that will hopefully be monthly- Splurge vs. Steal!

I absolutely love this concept and love reading any posts like these. Who doesn’t want to save money and get almost the exact same look for less? Now that I’m focusing my content more on living a life of balance between luxury and affordability, I thought this would be a great addition to my blog.

I stumbled upon these Steve Madden ‘Sutten’ Slingback Sandals and thought they were so cute and looked super comfortable (that block heel definitely makes a difference compared to a stiletto). As much as I wanted them, I couldn’t justify the price of $129.95.

Then I found these Merona Missi Huarache Sandals at Target and did a double take. They might not be EXACTLY the same, but at $32.99, they were an absolute steal compared to the price of the Steve Madden heels. Both sandals are huarache inspired, with a block heel, and almost the same color (confession: I actually think I like the Target heels better).

Even though they’re not twins- they serve the same purpose, have the same look, and will match with the same colors and styles of outfits. I actually ended up buying the heels from Target (they are currently on sale now too!)… I mean, I saved over $95 dollars. I swear these two designers must have shared a brain when they made these shoes.

Please let me know what you think of this new series! I’d love to hear any of your thoughts/comments or any advice you have to make it better. 🙂
