Splurge vs. Steal- Kitty-Cat Flats

Hey Cats!

If you know me, or if you’ve taken context clues from my blog title, you know that I LOVE cats. Love ’em. Not only are they precious little creatures, but they do whatever they want, just like me!

I have been dying for a pair of kitty-cat flats for some time now, but the problem is finding a pair that doesn’t make me look like a child or a crazy cat lady- which I am, but I’d like to keep that under wraps for a bit longer. When I found out that Nordstrom was debuting Charlotte Olympia’s Purrrfect Collection, I was ecstatic. I mean, how chic are these shoes? They’re an excellent touch of whimsy, yet still classic. I love the gold heel, and the little ears, of course.

However, when I saw the price tag, I knew they would never have a place in my single-girl closet, due to my college-girl budget. So I decided to hunt for an alternative! I immediately thought of ModCloth, the site for all things whimsical and inexpensive. I came across these Cat Me if You Can flats, and although they’re not exactly the same style, they’re still super cute! I love the burgundy color (which is a surprisingly easy color to mix in your wardrobe) and the little kitten just hanging out on the toes. The best part? They’re only $44.99, compared to $595 for the Charlotte Olympia pair!

As sad as it is when something I love is out of my price range, I really enjoy trying to find an alternative- it’s like a scavenger hunt! Just remember, you don’t always have to splurge, there’s usually something similar out there that you’ll love just as much!

That’s all for meow!
