Reader Request - Rihanna's Shoes

Greetings Fashionistas,


Happy Friday good people! I have a reader request to share with you all from Federica

Hey Shanequa,

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
$146.00 www.lorisshoes.com

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
$32.99 www.endless.com

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!


big buddha women's rylee
$25.00 (on sale) www.famousfootwear.com

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.


Steve Madden Trouser
$39.99 (on sale) www.piperlime.com

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!







Arrivederci!

Thank you! I can't afford Rihanna's shoes but I certainly can afford the ones by Jeffrey Campbell :)
