I love when I find a good dupe to a pricey or discontinued product. It feels like I was challenged to keep a piece of joy in my life and I won. FYI – I’m a firm believer in small victories.
Well, I feel this same bout of enthusiasm when I find a similar fashion buy, too. Case in point, these 3.1 Philip Lim Emerson Short Chelsea Booties have been on my heart and mind for a while. Unfortunately, that $650 price tag for these chic mod booties was just too much for me and wallet to part with so close too holiday shopping season. You know? Real tears.
However, imagine my delight while scrolling around ShopBop.com and see a pair of Jeffrey Campbell Larice booties that were very similar to the Lim booties. The JCs had the same stacked wooded heel look and elastic sides, which is what I love the most about the 3.1 Philip Lim booties. Not to mention, the JCs are very attainable with a price tag of less than $200.
Mod booties and the whole sleek retro vibe is coming back hard this season. Plus, can you really have too many booties in the fall and winter? I think not.
Affordable dupes make my wallet smile, especially when it comes to super cute mod booties.
