Cheap Vs Chic: round toe wedding shoes

By admin on January 23rd, 2007 7 comments


While neither of these shoes are what you could describe as a "budget" option, at $210, Cynthia Rowley’s ‘Tinsel’ is still less than half the price of these similarly styled Christian Lacroix shoes, which are currently $473.95 at Zappos. Both pairs have round toes and high heels, and both have little fabric bow details on the toe. The question is, is the diamante bow embellishment on the Christian Lacroix versions, and those bright pink soles, worth the additional $263.95?

    I have to say for the wedding I would wear the Cynthia Rowley ones and the Lacroix for every single day after; leopard print, round toe, tasteful cream, pink underheel and the diamante bow – fabulous and worth every penny!

    its funny how much i LOVE the Lacroix pair and absolutely despise the Rowley pair. Similar in theory- but the lower heal, tacky bow and flat appearance of the Rowley make them worthless to me. But i’d kill for that Lacroix pair!

  • Ms. Amber pleaaaaase do you know of a website that stocks the Tinsels and ships internationally? They would be perfect and I’m beyond frustrated with searching for them.

    (I prefer the Lacroix ones, but damn, they’re expensive and I couldn’t dance in them for very long)
