[JessFinds] Recessionista Footwear

I had to give up heels a while ago (remember that post about being a clogs mom?) but that does not mean that I don't drool over darling shoes like any red-blooded woman should. I am hard on shoes - I find a pair that I love and I wear them to death. I tend to purchase the same high-end brand comfort shoes (Ecco, Propet, Dasnko) and spend my money there. Fashion shoes elude me as I can't imagine spending $600 on a seasonal whim.

These are amazing, a-maze-ing, shoes that ooze personal style and look far more expensive then they actually are.

CC Flat bootie - $39 - Swirl by Daily Candy
You need to sign up to join member site Swirl (no cost) but they are sending out $20 credits to all new sign-ups right now. That means these boots are - gasp - $19.


Charlotte Russe - $30



These have a bo-ho aesthetic I don't normally go for but I keep going back to them. Look at that little rainbow arch around the toe and the careful ruching. It just looks like someone cared more than $30 to make.
Forever 21 -$24.80

These look like they danced out of an Anthropology catalog shoot. I am not above pillaging a Forever 21 store for shoes!

Charlotte Russe - $22.50

I love, love, love these. When all the magazines said "leopard" I thought "snakeskin." These are also a very similar tribute to a certain pair of Jessica Simpson brand $75 shoes.

What have you found out there? Let me know and I will link out to it!
