YSL Cage Booties

I've always been a shoe fiend. I fall in and out of love with shoes so often I can't even count the times. I always try to find the most fascinating shoes to wrap my little fingers around, and I find many quite fascinating! From granny booties, to brogues, to classic little oxfords and strappy heels, I always find myself in great lust for new shoes.

My newest want would definitely be the Yves Saint Laurent cage booties. I don't know if this is fleeting lust, but right now I am definitely all over these shoes.



The best part is, it seems like a lot of other retail stores seem to be picking up on the trend! While these sweeties are going for a cool $1,500 other places like Bakers are selling out theirs for a fraction of the price. ($70, I believe?) And just today I saw Forever 21 selling a pair exactly like these Baker ones for $27! But I don't know...it's still a little pricey for my blood considering I don't know if it's overwhelming lust or true shoe love.



What do you guys think?

I absolutely love the cage booties! But the thing I like about them the most (that crazy heel) isn't the same on the knockoffs...

i vote to buy - the F21 version of course. beware of awkward tan lines though!

PinkBow said...

the ysl cage boot is one of my favourite's of this year - & this is a really good version of it on a budget!

haha, I´m soo the same about shoes.
very unfaithful but that keeps our little liaison more interesting- sometimes I lock a pair of shoes away for some month than rediscover it and feel as if I just got a NEW pair!

haha, those cage heels are obviously love. at least for some time. ;)

thanks for your comment on the writing part.
yes, this is definitely what I want to do, I´m just a little hesitant about how it links with the blog yet.
