Buy This, Not That

Old Navy Open-Toe Espadrilles $24.50
Marc Jacobs Mouse Espadrille $445

After wearing espadrille wedges for years, I've decided to branch out with a flat version this season.  I was fixated on the Marc Jacobs pair as well as these Lanvin flats until I spotted the Old Navy peep toe flat, which I actually prefer. They come in six great colors (including metallic gold, olive green, and blue and white stripes), go with every outfit, and are only $24.  Score! Which shoes would you prefer?

I coveted my cousin's pair of espadrille flats all summer, I love them! Great alternative to the flip flops (or thongs as we Aussies call them ;)) I wore as a constant.

These are cute but on myself, I need to have the wedge! I buy Old Navy wedge espardrilles in bulk for the summer. I love the fun colors and most of all.. the price!

How funny, I just ordered these a few days ago!

Julie said...

The old navy pair are much cuter and more airer than the Marc Jacobs...and $445 that's a lot for sandals!

$24 is a fantastic find! I love these shoes and flats are the way to go. I may drop by Old Navy and get a pair of these. It will be a nice change from my usual flip flops.

What a good find! Although I do love the MJ's, the peep toe is fab! I am heading over there now! Thanks...xo

Marisa said...

great find! I actually really like those and normally I'm not a huge fan of the espadrille. Time to scope out my local Old Navy!

I love these. I need flat shoes for spring, since Ryan's only a couple inches taller than me and it's nice to not soar over him! I'm definitely ordering a pair.
