Recently, I saw this image of Katherine Heigl in her California-cool fall look, wearing a nude turtleneck sweater, skinny jeans, & a knit red scarf. She finished off with ‘Petra’ buckle booties ($248.00) in fawn from Ann Taylor. I instantly had to find them online, but was dismayed by the expensive price. Of course, I do know that Ann Taylor frequently has storewide 40-50% off sales on all merchandise.
Then I remembered seeing a similarly styled bootie, the ‘Fessup’ from Nine West, which I posted about during the website’s Black Friday special. The ‘Fessup’ ($54.50) has been reduced even more from $109.00 & has the same chic feel in a neutral hue with a side zipper.
Of course, both are equally as fashionable & the buckle detail is especially nice, however when there’s a chance for a bargain, the luxury look-alike items always win!
