Reader Request: Louboutin Booties for Less

I got this email from Lizney this week,

I have a favor to ask of you. I’ve fallen head over heels in love with these Louboutin’s but can’t/don’t have the $$$ to spend on them!!! I’m sick lusting them though and I though that maybe you can help me find something similar for around $50-60. Crossing fingers as I can already feel them on my feet! They are ooohhhh so very cute! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!!!

This one took some major digging, and I still didn't quite hit the price mark she was looking for, but I think I found a pretty comparable match (and at a heel height that one might actually be able to walk in, hehe):

Meree Lace-Up Bootie - Christian Louboutin (via Nieman Marcus) - $1095
Seychelles' Dorothy - - $80 (Orig. $100) {use coupon code MSAVE for the 20% discount + you get free shipping)

If you are looking for a more reasonable alternative for cut out oxford booties, I found a few under $30:

1 - Betty Oxford Pump - Forever 21 - $24.80
2 - Cut-Out Booties - Forever 21 - $24.80
3 - Velika Peep-Toe Pumps - Target - $29.99
4 - Open Toe Oxford Pumps - Forever 21 - $25.80

What do you guys think of this look? Is it something you would wear? Leave a comment!

Thanks for reading,

Happy Shopping!


  1. the target ones are ADORABLE. I think I'm going to have to buy them!

  2. It's just not a look I can get behind. The Target ones aren't bad, but they hardly look like oxfords.

  3. I am 5 feet zero and walk in heels almost all the time and I cannot for the life of me imagine how anyone can walk in that louboutin monstrosity. That shoe might cost over a thousand but that heel is still hooker-height. FAIL.

    On the otherhand, those heeled oxfords from seychelles are mad cute and I have similar miss sixty booties in black patent that always get me compliments.

  4. Oh Madeline, you out did yourself! Now to choose which ones! Thank you!

  5. You amaze me with how you find looks for less. Do you have a master list of stores that you look at online? Those are some cute shoes.

  6. @Cathie - it's not a look I am sold on either. I see the appeal, but don't think I'll ever wear it.

    @Drops of Jupiter- I agree that one of the most important things about shoes is walkability (cuteness is awesome, but if you can't move, it's a moot point)

    @Lizney - so glad you like them!

    @Rachel - I don't have a list of stores as much as a few tools I like to use. and google shopping are a few that I find to be incredibly helpful. Although sometimes I just stumble on to something because of the ridiculous amount of time I spend on the internet looking at clothes and shoes. (which is what happened with the seychelles shoes).
