Happy Friday good people! I have a reader request to share with you all from Federica
I love, love, LOVE the shoes that Rihanna is wearing in this picture. I need them...or something like them because I'm a student so I'm on a tight budget. Could you tell me who makes them and find a cheaper pair??? Awesome blog by the way!
Thanks in advance,
Thanks for the compliment Federica. A quick search through my fav designer department stores helped me locate RiRi's shoes.
Rihanna is wearing these Wingtip Platform Espadrille Oxfords by Prada. They are currently $795.00 at Saks Fifth Avenue. Clearly these oxfords are priced steep....but they are stunning aren't they? I'm slightly in love with them myself. But I know I wouldn't wear them too often because I'm a 5-inch heel and higher kinda girl......on most days. But don't fret, I've found you some options below that I think you will like, and be willing to shell out a few duckets for.
Jeffrey Campbell Ad-Long - Brown Combo
So this platform oxford is clearly inspired by Prada. The platform is a little bit more pronounced but the price is significantly less. Jeffrey Campbell is swiftly making a name for themselves for "knocking off" designer duds. I actually prefer the shoes they aren't "inspired" by personally. But to each his own ;-)
Wanted Women's Chap Oxford
The oxford above doesn't have the espadrille platform but the wingtip shape and mahogany rich brown hue is similar. This affordable find looks pricier than it is, and that's a plus!

This option is wallet friendly and although the look is noticeably different, the lace-up oxford will still look super hot paired with a summer mini dress or tailored shorts.

I'm thinking this shoe could work with the addition of dark, contrasting laces. Once again, the price is right. I would recommend pairing them as shown above, or with a slim trouser pant that hits at the ankle, a fitted tank tucked in at the waist, and a wide envelope clutch. "Notice-me" accessories are a must!
I hope one of these options work for you Federica. Happy shopping!
