That, Not This

Looking to add to my ever growing 
summer sandal collection,
found myself recently drawn to THIS:
Christian Louboutin Delfin Espadrille Wedges
$395.00 @ Saks.com

Thankfully, J Crew thoughtfully sent an email alert
about a fabulous summer sale, where I spotted THAT, instead.

Estella grossgrain espadrilles
$69.99 @ JCrew.com


$325.00 less, and they're purple too!!!
{thanks J Crew!}

  4. Isn't that amazing? I think the J Crew pair looks cuter -- more flattering to the leg. They really do a great job. Must go shop sale!!

  5. I actually like the J. Crew sandals better & the color is soooo me.... might have to snatch those. Love that the heel isn't too high because I am a bit of a klutz, been walking around in flats for too long. xo

  6. I'm a fan of Christ....but this time Jenna's team did a better job!!!! And the price tag is better too. Love J. Crew!

  7. Definitely think the j crew one is prettier. Must look for them on my next cross-border shopping expedition. Have to start filling that new shoe closet!

  10. Great find with the J.Crew! I do like that pair much better especially because it is in a fabulous purple hue.

  12. I actually like the JCrew pair better! Finally, the cheaper shoe is more appealing to me!

    Have a great day!

  13. I like the J crew pair better too! The heel is a little nicer... For daytime, summer or winter, I wear flats. Flat as the earth flats.

    Im loving these lanvin python flats I picked up for %40 off!

  14. Well done! Agree on the J Crew choice. Much cuter and lighter for summery legs!

    x Charltota... and see, I can't even spell my name... or perhaps I should change it to that..!? A bit more exotic and mysterious.. Not at all Swedish.. :)

  15. Like the J Crew better as well. That is too funny. enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like both but I would wear the jCrew shoe before the Louboutin - that red is way too bright. Though I might have to rip off that little bow ... so not me. Definitely cute, though!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I'm with the first comment - 400 bones is a bit much for a baby wedge...but I love the second pair!

  18. I remember falling head over espadrilles at Hermes and then flying all the way to France to happily happen upon a pair that were the joie de vivre to my Summer.
    I love espadrilles!

  19. The smell of summer is here.
    The Louboutin sandals look nice, but I'm not sure if it's worth that much.
    Good thing you found an alternative.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I like the J Crew one better! It's too cute. I like how it's a slip on as well!

    ReplyDelete
  21. love it when things work out that way!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Good find! Not really my style, but I like the pretty purple color!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I was checking out those Louboutins too, so glad to know there's an alternative that's just as pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Once again....less is more.
    Love the Purple... of course.

  25. Well, you absolutely needed those purple ones! I would never never pay $300+ for a pair of espadrilles.

    ReplyDelete
  26. hahaha good thing they came through! it always kills me to spend $400 on a pair of flats. but i have been known to do it :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Love the J Crew shoes- My MIL used to work for JCrew- practically my whole wardrobe is made up of JCrew- Lucky me- except she retired two years ago- Boo- even my monkeys had great clothes, Love Crew Cuts- but they grew out of them- Lucky for me I'm still the same size!

  28. I actually think I like the jcrew ones better! go jcrew!

    ReplyDelete
  29. yay for J. Crew, that amount of money is WAY too much for espadrilles!

    ReplyDelete
  30. wow, the jcrew version is WAY cuter. i posted about espadrilles-for-less just recently as well! my friend wanted a $700 prada pair, yikes!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I actually think the JCrew is cuter and the price is much better and doable even if I had the $$$S I would buy the JCrewfor sure, Happy Tuesday,Kathysue

    ReplyDelete
  32. I adore the first ones! Just because pastels aren't really my thing!

    Come check out my first giveaway!!!!

    Luvs!

    ReplyDelete
  33. these are perfect, I was just at Nordies looking at shoes and could not find a pair that I wanted ...off to J crew now.

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is one of the very rare instances where I prefer the less expensive option!! Love the purple also!...Carol

    ReplyDelete
  35. You totally took the thoughts right out of my head: PURPLE!! (and of course PRICE is crucial as well...hehe)

    But I have to say I prefer the J.Crew pair - the heel's slightly higher, there's a little more bow and where the fabric is place will be more attractive on the foot. What a find!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. that would be "where the fabric is placeD"

    seriously. is it friday yet??

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yuppie to J.Crew! They really have the best stuff, dont they?
    Kisses darling

    ReplyDelete
  38. I am a huge fan of Louboutin. That said, I actually like the J Crew option better here!

    ReplyDelete
  39. A better price always looks better, usually because there is a smile up top :)
    Love the white watch, I'm with you there, sporting one myself (the cheaper one)! That's cool your "linkbacks" I've so much to learn about blogging!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Those J Crew ones are so cute! I actually like them better. That color... LOVELY!

  42. It just shows that people pay hundreds more for the name brand. Both are fabulous!:)
    Happy tuesday! Thanks for entering the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  43. love me some j.crew... that jenna can do no wrong in my book. great find — love this feature!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Great choice. I actually think I prefer the shape of the J Crew ones. xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  45. i almost bought the jcrew the other day. love them! and i have to say, i can be a bit of a brand groupie... but those just aren't even as cute!!

  46. nice find for you!!! i love when that happens :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Love the Jcrew find:) also saw something cute at target for $30.00

    ReplyDelete
  48. I could never spend that much on shoes, as i would ruin them in no time! They're pretty flipping cute though....and so are the JCrew sandals. Much more sensibly priced too ;)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hmmm....don't think I'd be spending that sort of money on a pair of espadrilles, even if I had it spare... The colour is nice though, maybe that's the reason for the price? ;-) Have a lovely week, Love from London x

    ReplyDelete
  50. The Crew pair is SUCH a pretty color!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Much nicer anyway! I love a good bargain, you hit the jackpot!

  52. I think I prefer the JCrew one, too! It looks a little less...orthopedic (and I can't believe I said that about a pair of CL's but there ya go..).

    ReplyDelete
  53. These are darling! I love the red color of the Louboutins but the shape of the J.Crew ones is fabulous!

  54. $395. and probably made with $3.95 worth of material. get real, folks! WHO WOULD PAY THAT?!?!? yeesh.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Nice find! I love the J Crew ones. I want them too!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Very cute, and a great steal! While the Louboutin espadrilles are cute, if I were going to spend that much money I would get a pair of the black patent CL stilettos!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Good pick! I'd spend the money on great heels ;) xx

    ReplyDelete
  58. Good find, Sue! I love the grosgrain, actually, more!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Loving them both but you can't beat the price at J Crew! : )

    ReplyDelete
  60. thank God for designer style for less... and great quality too!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'm laughing because pretty pink tulips is a fan of Christ, but Jenna's team did better. Can't make this stuff up, people!!

    I went to Saks today... SOOOOOOO rare (my first time to the mall in OVER A YEAR!). Lots of fun, but I was in a rush because I had to go to my GUM SURGERY consult! Not so fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  62. AND they have a little heel! Great find.

    ReplyDelete
  63. The J. Crew are even more adorable and of course the price is right!!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. And cuter too. The lomboutin is looking a tid bit geriatric to me.

    ReplyDelete
  65. The J. Crew version gets my vote. Way prettier!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Loving both sandals!
