Splurge/Save: The Bow Flat

In which I spent 15 minutes debating between the two...

splurge or save - the gold bow flat

I spotted these adorable Kate Spade ballet flats the other day and immediately bookmarked ’em. Contrast details? A gold bow to finish off a perfectly feminine, classic shoe? Yes, please! But then, over the weekend, these equally cute flats from Banana Republic popped up in my email Inbox. And even though the price differential between these two isn’t that drastic, the thing is, BR is always having those 40% off sales (like, on the daily, it feels like!) so the odds of scoring them with a good deal is pretty high.

Every gal needs a dainty pair of unabashedly girly flats like this in her wardrobe — but as we ease into another week, on this lovely Monday morning, the only question I have for you is: would you splurge, or would you save?

    I think I would have to splurge, the KS ones are so cute!

    I am torn, I love them both! Want to know a secret place to find amazing flats – Century 21, they had a huge French Sole collection there recently.

    Save! I like the less perfect bow better.

    I love them both – but I wish I could take the BR bows and put them on the KS flats (so picky!) – very cute options either way!

    I almost like the save ones more! This NEVER happens to me. I hate shopping as I naturally gravitate to the most expensive thing in the store and it’s always depressing haha

    I actually really prefer the save version!

    I really love the bow on the BR version! Plus that cognac leather is so gorgeous on a flat.

    I actually prefer the BR pair, too! I’ve never purchased shoes from BR (even though a majority of my wardrobe carries their label); how do they rank in comfort and quality?
