Broke-Ass Tag: wedding heels


Shoes are a personal weakness of mine. Finding the perfect pair of glittery heels for my own wedding was one of my favorite online searches  – ever. This week, I was once again searching for glittery dancing shoes.

I am in love with the Kate Spade Krysta multi-colored shoes. The $328 dollars is definitely not in my price range so I was hoping you could help me find something similar for less than that. I do love the bow, actually it’s basically my favorite part!

Payless Budget

Given your Payless Budget sign-off, I set the budget at $55 and under. What do you think about these sole sisters?


Kate Spade ($328 at Piperlime)



Madden Girl Jassper ($49 at Lulu’s)

Love Glitter Pump by Carlos Santana ($49.95 at DSW)


Lulu Townsend Illene Multicolor pump ($49.95 at DSW)

Type Z Darla Multi ($48.99 at Zappos)

Madden Girl Tiarah ($46.99 at Zappos)

Blink’s Gold Baileyy ($54.99 from

My Delicious Idol Oatmeal Bow Peep Toe ($28 at Lulus)


Kitsch Couture Gina Glitter Heels (£35 at Bank Fashion)

J. Renee Rosina ($79.95 at

As you can see, the most similar pair are undoubtedly the  J. Renee Rosina slingbacks. They’re a little pricier than the rest of the lot at almost $80, but look the closest in spirit to the Kate Spades you’re lusting for. In my self-imposed price range, I had trouble finding both the bow and the right glitter color combination. However, there are a number of options that are definitely inspired by your favorite shoes. Any BABs out there have tips about adding glitter to a pair of heels? Or maybe a bow could be added to shoes that already have the perfect glitter? All crafting tips welcome ladies. Please share.

    Hi fellow broke-asses! I’ve got a cry for help. Basically, I need some shoes for my wedding. Not too hard, but I’m vegan, so I need them to be all man-made materials. Additionally, my groom is not much taller than me, so while I’d like a small heel or wedge, I need it to be 2″ or less. I’d prefer something with a vintage-y flair, but I’m open to just about anything. Can you help? Thank you!
