How refreshing is it to see the over-the-top, Hollywood-fabulous pair go Frugal Snob for our sake? It also shows the duo is with the times, as every bona fide American designer has a more accessible sister line these days. The results are edgier and actually street-friendly (not just red carpet and gala-appropriate, which doesn’t quite translate to real life).
Platform pumps (On Bluefly for $147 (opposed to $245 elsewhere)) with a thick, ruched sling is both ladylike and city-smart. Nothing worse than when your heel slips out as you walk and you’re forced to drag your feet close to the ground as if you can’t walk in heels. The sandals’ (On Bluefly for $165 (opposed to $275 elsewhere)) layered sole gives triple the texture and elemental interest that makes the shoes look higher than their pleasing price point. A fun wedge, but watch out! Set on a 6″ heel, you can’t have too much fun.
These bargain-style prices are unbeatable for the high-end styles. Whatever names you choose to call them by, Badgley Mischka delivers.
