As an avid fan of ‘Sex and the City,’ I’m embarrassed to say that I have yet to see the film. Despite my despicable behavior, I’ve done my research on the fashionistas’ wardrobes. Since I’ve written countless posts on my infatuation with anything gladiator-related, I figure it’s only fitting that I write a ‘Crave or Save’ piece on an affordable alternative to Carrie’s famous Diors.
While I always wondered just how Carrie was able to afford such incredible shoes on a writer’s budget, I suppose in the episode when the bank told her she was not a ‘desirable candidate’ for a loan, that pretty much summed it up. Though I’ve seen these Extreme Dior Gladiator Platforms just about everywhere, they just don’t get old. The diamond shape that forms down the length of the foot is so flattering and they’re the perfect balance of a delicate sandal with a slightly masculine vibe. Nine West’s Gisellan, is such an excellent option and still offer the same studded, multi strap, open toe look, but for a lovely $711 less.
