Carven Bow Flats vs Budget

I’ve been lusting after Carven bow flats or heels for a while but since I haven’t tried them on in stores I don’t know the comfort level for these $500 shoes.  So glad I waited as the budget version looks just as cute.  I love this Carven photo with the pops of colors and of course the adorable bows in the back of the shoe.

This luxe version shoe is here:

And I found pretty much the same flats for $55 here!  I can’t decide what color I want, stick with classic black or go for the turquoise.  What do you think?

People liked my previous post on my deal on silver pointy pumps here so I thought I would try to share these finds every week or so.  By the way the silver Charles David pumps I purchased are super comfy (and loving this pair that I didn’t notice before and for less than $100)!   

Have you found any great deals lately?

    OMG, they are so cute! The budget version is fabulous and these flats are the perfect alternative to heels. I think they look equally good with dresses and with capri jeans.AnnetteLady of Style

    Oh my gosh what a great steal! I really liked the original pair when I saw them but I nearly choked when I saw the price!

    Love these shoes! After reading I realized I have seen these before. Sole Society carries them for around $39 – $49.
