Save or Splurge?, Vol. 10: Snakeskin Pumps

snakeskin pumps heels Target
Save or Splurge? is a post where I’ll show you an item from Target and its higher end version that potentially inspired it.

So this week is officially spring, right? Thank goodness. I’m ready to wear shoes that aren’t ankle boots, and these snakeskin pumps are at the top of my list to wear this spring. I think snakeskin print has been so “in” for the last season and I can see it trickling into spring with light shades, like this gray/black/white version seen above. The pumps on the left are done by Manolo Blahnik (buy them here) and run about $865. I picked up the ones on the right recently from Target (get them here), and they are regularly $30.

I love the slim stiletto of the Manolo Blahnik that they are so well known for, but there is something about the price tag that I just can’t swallow. They sure are pretty to look at, but so are my pair from Target!

    I can’t imagine paying $865 for a pair of shoes. I have a dollar limit for every type of item and I rarely cave. Unless it speaks to me.

    • Hahaha. I love your caveat…”unless it speaks to me.” I might have to adopt that. But I’m a caver…for sure.
