Real vs. Steal – Yves Saint Laurent Essentiel T-Strap Sandals

by Vahni on July 29, 2010

YSL. In my head, that stands for yummy shoes, love!—and these Essentiel T-Strap Sandals by Yves Saint Laurent are a stellar example why. Have you ever seen a heel like that? Totally swoon-worthy. And with a price tag of $895 it’s not just the heel that has me gasping for air. Dang!

Question: Is it blasphemy to think a bebe sandal looks better than the shoe it was inspired by? Because if loving the bebe “Iris” Architectural Sandal more than YSL is wrong, I don’t want to be right. Although Iris is not a t-strap, she does have that architectural heel, and blessings be, the price is also well under two bills. From the moment I spotted this shoe it has been haunting me. I waitlisted myself for it, got my notification, and they are currently en route to me. If they look half as good in real life, you’ll be seeing them again in a photo…on my feet. Available in dark gold and black.

    I prefer the Bebe ones too. I love the diagonal straps as opposed to the thinner, horizontal ones of the YSL.

  • Psssst, don’t tell anyone, but I’m with you both preferring Bebe’s version over the YSL original.
