Battle of the Brands: Black & Gold Stiletto Sandals

Hey Honey Buns!

I know it’s been a loooong time since I’ve done a Battle of the Brands post, but don’t worry because this is a good one. The ankle strap stiletto sandal has been THE shoe trend of 2013. Fashionistas have been rocking them with dresses, camo pants, harem pants, skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, skirts, joggers, and the list goes on. I believe that this classic look will carry on into 2014!

Many stores and brands carry ankle strap stiletto sandals, but today I will be focusing on two specific brands-Forever 21 and Kurt Geiger. Here are the details on both shoes:

Forever 21′s Luxe” Stiletto Sandal  

F21 Gold and Black Stiletto Sandal

This faux leather stiletto stands at 4.75 inches high and has a metal plated ankle strap and back zipper. Total cost: $37

Kurt Geiger’s “Glide” Stiletto Sandal

Kurt Geiger Gold and Black Stiletto SandalThis shoe boasts metal plates on both the ankle and foot strap and has a metallic heel. It also has a back zipper. Geiger’s shoe is made of satin and lined in leather. The heel also stands around 4.75 inches. Total cost: $185. 

Price difference between both shoes: $148

 My choice for the winner? Forever 21! I didn’t choose this based on the cost (which is clearly the better price), but based on overall style. I personally like the simplicity of Forever 21′s version. Sometimes less is more, you know? Which one is your favorite?! No matter what you choose just know that you can look and live flyy…frugally!

I also peeped these Kurt Geiger “Gogo” heels which are on sale for $59! These are perfect for fall and winter. There are only select sizes left so you may want to get on that ASAP.
