There are a few key rules that every fashion girl must learn early on in her career/life.  One of the most important rules being when to splurge on something and when to save or hold out for a sale, or a “steal”, as some like to call it.  As I was perusing the net-a-porter website (as I often do) I stumbled upon a lovely little shoe by Jimmy Choo that looked strikingly similar to the Steve Madden pair that I recently purchased.  Sure these two shoes have their differences; an obvious one would be the thickness of their heels and height of the platforms.  But the biggest differences of all are the prices.  I always say I only splurge on classics so this is why I purchased the pretty Steve Madden’s for a cool $44.99 and I absolutely love them  (to see how I styled these shoes with the cropped top trend check out this post).

What do you think? Is this style really timeless enough to pay the price?
