Lust Have – Louis Vuitton Metallic Capped Toe

As soon as I started my 90 days in the wilderness challenge, I fell in love with these Louis Vuitton metallic Capped Toe heels. They quickly became number one on my Lust Have List.

I find them so classic and chic and would just about kill for them. I think they are about the most gorgeous shoe I have seen in years. But the price, $1450, is just a little more than I really want to spend at the end of my shopping fast.

So I went to the Louis Vuitton store in Melbourne and thought maybe the plainer version would do.

Not quite as gorgeous but you still get the cool metal capped toe and in white, they would bring a little bit of light to my winter wardrobe. Good news = they are less expensive than the above truly lust worthy pair. Bad news = they are still about $1000.

That’s the complete budget I have given myself to add new items to may wardrobe!

Maybe I can find something similar at a better price. The hunt begins.

This pair by Forever New is pretty close to the white Louis Vuittons and at less than $80 they aren’t bad…but…they just aren’t drool worthy. I want more. They can’t just be inexpensive, I have to love them almost as much as the original inspiration.

This pale pink pair from Stuart Weitzman at Shoebox almost does the trick. I like the 40s vibe of the strap and the thicker heel but the colour is not what I am looking for. I want something more versatile. With a price of $365 + shipping, I just don’t think I would get enough out of them.

I’ll have to keep looking…

Gorgeous shoe – check, 40s inspired strap – check, metal toe – check, price – XX. Although these Manolo Blahniks are fantastic and would be extremely versatile, it’s a price fail for this limited budget. At just under $800 from Nordstrom, I wouldn’t be able to afford much else on my wish list.

This pair of sling-back pumps are available at ASOS and are from KG by Kurt Geiger. They are currently on sale for $190 which is a great price! I like that they are white with the black piping. They’ll be versatile and work for all seasons. The metallic toe is not as big or shiny as some of the other styles which is about the only disappointment on these shoes.

This last pair is from TopShop and they are a little bit different in that the metallic is a rose gold colour. they are a little more modern looking than the others with the tiny platform and the metallic heel. It’s the fact that they are different that I find appealing. They are $78 pounds (about $125 AUD) and could be a contender.

I think with my limited budget one of the last two pair would be what I will have a look at next week when my time in the wilderness is complete.

Although I can’t afford the Lust Have – Louis Vuitton metallic Capped Toe pumps, I think I can rock either of these last two pair and work them nicely into my existing wardrobe.

Do you have a preference? Blow it all and go high-end or try to rock the reasonable price? What do you think?
