I interrupt the Style Staples series to bring you a rare Wednesday post because I just HAD to share my excitement with you. When I first set eyes on the Jenni Kayne d’orsay flats, I wasn’t so sure of my feelings towards the shoes, but as I’ve continued to see them, my heart has grown fonder and fonder. They’re awesome and gorgeous, and an interesting design that I haven’t seen everywhere yet. So I was ALL in. BUT THEN I realized they were $400+ ……. cue sinking heart. I can’t justify that – even if the cost per wear would be low. I can’t justify spending that much on something I am eventually going to ruin….. by walking on pavement …. it just doesn’t feel right. So I was hoping and hoping I’d find a more budget friendly pair, and I finally have! So I wanted to share it with you in case any of you lovelies also want these shoes but can’t find it in you to drop $400 on them.
Find the original Jenni Kayne shoes here, the Steve Madden shoes here, and the ShoeMint shoes here. (Update!: If you’re looking for a really cheap pair – Forever 21 has red and yellow! Find them here)
