Trendsetting Tuesday: Splurge vs. Steal

Trendsetting Tuesday brings about something that captured my attention a while back. When is it right to splurge on an item and when is it better to just get it for a cheaper price? A couple months ago I did a Splurge vs. Steal feature with a pair of Jimmy Choo bejeweled heels to see when it’s a good time to splurge or go for the steal.

Now I stumbled across Valentino studded flats and replica’s on another website. So regularly the Valentino Rockstud Patent Ballerina Flats T.05 are approximately $845. They are gorgeous, patent leather, with gold studs, pointed-toe and available in a variety of colors. They are perfection! But with a price tags like that, it’ll break my bank.

The alternative, Dollhouse Stunner studded flats for around $25-28! The difference, aside from the designer name, they are suede, not as pointy and they have a gold lining on the back of the heel. Of course there might be other differences but hey, they can’t always be exact.

So, what would you do? Splurge or Steal, or none of the above?

Trendsetting Tuesday: Shop Love D Shoes

This Trendsetting Tuesday is about a new website that has recently launched and is open for business! Shop Love D Shoes is a women’s shoe store located all over Southern California and has now joined the world wide web.

Love D Shoes was established in 1992 and currently has 14 store locations. Specializing in women’s footwear, this store is where I grab some of my favorite shoes of the season. With reasonable prices and great promotions such as 30% off or buy 1 get 1 50% off, there’s no way I won’t take a peek inside the store.

What’s great is that now they are available online to show me what they have in stores. While the site is fairly new and still being worked on, I already have a couple that I love! To make things even better they are having a New Year’s promotion!

For a limited time you can get free shipping AND 30% off your entire purchase when you use promo code “NewYear30“!

So let’s take a look at my top shoes!

The first is Bamboo- Sharpay-05 in black. Currently I’m obsessed with booties and these are the perfect ones to complete any outfit. With gold buckles and 3 inches of chunky heel it’s my fav.
