Remember those lovely J.Crew Camden brogues in blush pink that we will NEVER EVER have not only because it's a whopping $250 but because the blush pink color is also sold out? Well, look what I found at the Payless website...
I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised to see an affordable Alice + Olivia alternative! I'm a HUGE J.Crew fan but since I don't have tons of cash just lying around (How I wish I did though!), I have to be smart! And Payless was definitely the way to go!
I ordered the shoes a couple of weeks ago and of course, I had the shoes delivered to the nearest location so that I can save on shipping (Remember, $6 saved on shipping is $6 that will be going to a new pair of shoes!) And today was the day. I went to the mall to pick up the pink loveliness that was waiting to go home.
The Alice + Olivia Payless version is very comfortable. They are also a nice pale shade of pink. The bottoms are quite different though, it being rubber but it's no biggie. I have to get used to the lace-less thing though. It kind of looks semi-naked, you know? I mean, the whole lace-up thing is what got me hooked on jazz shoes in the first place so not having laces kind of confuses my brain. I might get laces for these pink lovelies but for $24 (I used a coupon), I'm definitely not complaining!
