Look for Less: Nine West Lawrence Pump

At first glance, you might think you're looking at a pair of matching shoes, but you'd be mistaken: The shoe on the left is by Nine West, it's called the Lawrence Pump and it retails for $78.95 at The shoe on the right is available at Target (I should know, I bought them less than two weeks ago!), it's called the Pari by Mossimo and sells for $29.99. I really love this style shoe, it's subdued enough for the office yet fun enough for drinks after. And amidst a flurry of strappy gladiators and cage heels (many of which are undeniably fierce), this shoe doesn't scream trend whore. It just whispers, tee.

Straps are comfy & foot is secure, but because of the heel height, this isn't a shoe you could do a lot of walking in. It's OK if you're mostly sitting at your desk all day, walking a couple blocks to the subway, etc.

I've been eyeing the Nine West version, TOTALLY forgetting your Target purchase. Thanks for the reminder.
