Real vs. Steal – Badgley Mischka Randee T-Strap Sandals

Ahh, the fantasy continues. What fantasy you ask? My loquacious behavior for repeating the name Badgley Mischka (which I wrote about last week). But I will spare you all that today. I’m focused on how to convey the beauty of this red heel. Since I can’t seem to find the words, how about me painting a pretty picture for you?! Picture this: You’re at a glamorous event (Ms. Lady In Red), wearing these and dancing the night away. If you’re anything like me, you’d kick these babies off after dancing 3-4 songs and let others see the maker of your ravishing red heels! I know, I know, it’s a little pretentious, but can you blame me? Dammit for $200, I want to get my money’s worth! What’s a girl to do; competing with all those coveted, insanely expensive red bottom heels out there? ūüėČ

Oasis “Liffly” Ruffle Sandals

UPDATE (05/24/2011): UK & European readers, rejoice! Found a nice Randee alternative by Oasis for you. Too bad they don’t come in fire red.

RSVP “Carol” Ruffled Sandals

Um… seriously, what does RSVP do? Sit around waiting for Badgley Mischka to design a heel; to only then, rush to knock it off? Or do I detect a mole? Because they have the BEST copies of Badgley Mischka’s heels! So if you’re not a “label whore” like myself (pin a rose on your nose) and don’t give 2 cents about having a designer label in your shoes, then girlfriend, once again, rsvp for these (ridiculously affordable) “Carol” heels. Which are nearly, undetectable copies of the (ritzy) “Randees”.

    Thanks for the wonderful post. The shoes are fierce! I also wanted to draw your attention to these super affordable option from Bakers. They had the red ones but I guess they sold out because the shoe is now on sale.

  • WOW Frugal Gal, you’re right…pretty good version over there @ Bakers!
    Can’t beat that “frugalicious” price either!
    Thanks for your comment.

  • Fabulous!

  • Normally I don’t like anything to look like it is growing from a women’s foot, but I’ll make an exception for these. Gorgeous and sexy, I can live with that.

    I love these shoes and want to wear them for my wedding this fall. I cannot find them anywhere. I can’t even find a knock off version. I’m looking for the red Badgley Mischka ‚ÄúRandee‚ÄĚ T-Strap Sandals (or knock off) in size 7. SOS!!!
