Steal vs. Splurge – Elizabeth and James Heels!

Bargainistas, I’ve got another Steal vs. Splurge for you!

D’orsay heels have been popular for years, though currently re-emerging as a popular heel to wear, paired with everything from skinny jeans to leather jogging pants (yes, such a thing exists!).

A few months back, I came across this pair of Elizabeth and James D’Orsay heels on Shopbop.

Sadly, at $325 a pair, these heels would remain on my ‘covet’ list.  Since then, the heels have been discounted a bit, but the 40% discounted price ($195) is still too much for my budget to bare.

 

 

 

So, I was beyond excited when I came across this ‘luxe for less’ version!

Currently sold at Forever 21, this version is selling for only $36.80!  Much more reasonable than the ‘discounted’ $200 price tag on ShopBop!  What’s more, I was ordering online and – as usual – Googled ‘Forever 21 promo code’ and came across this 10% off, plus Free Shipping code: RA9TT7.  The caveat:  Using this code makes your items FINAL SALE, so make sure you are familiar with Forever 21’s shoe sizing before ordering.

 

 

Here’s a side by side comparison:

Pretty similar, right??  You’re welcome, again (version 3.0). 😉

P.S. – Follow me on Instagram to see how I styled the Forever 21 version of these heels with office-appropriate outfits this past month!
