Splurge vs Save

Being on maternity leave, I didn’t really have to worry much about what I was wearing. My typical daily outfit was a t-shirt and sweat pants, not very stylish. Now that I am back at work, sweats are not really acceptable – some rule about a professional dress code or something! 

I can’t really complain because my job actually has a relaxed dress code but on the occasion we have important clients visiting or an important business meeting dressing up is essential to project a professional image. That being said there are certain wardrobe staples that I think every woman should have, one of those staples is a pair of nude heels. Nude shoes are very versatile and can take you from a board meeting at work to cocktails at Happy Hour.

Now, just because something is a staple doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. You all know I am fan of saving and finding a good deal, but just because I like a good deal doesn’t mean I want to sacrifice on good quality.

Below are two pairs of nude shoes that would be a great addition to anyone’s wardrobe, one version is a splurge while the other offers some savings -something to keep in mind when shopping is spending responsibly…there’s nothing wrong with being a savvy shopper ;-)

This post is part of Credit Card Insiders Splurge vs Save campaign, a company that offers great  tips for being financially responsible. They are a great, unbiased consumer resource. Though this post is a collaboration all thoughts and opinions are my own.  


  1. Oh wow, those are so close it's hard to pick. But on price alone, I'd pick the Jessica Simpson, but the Brian Atwood does appear to be a bit more narrow in the toe. Great choices.

  2. Those Jessica Simpson pumps look just like the Brian Atwood pair and you cannot beat the price!

  3. Great bargain find with the Jessica Simpson pumps!! I have a pair of Nine West nude pumps (that I found on sale at TJ Maxx) that I wear all the time. Nude pumps are such a great closet staple!

  4. I'm with Angela!!! I love the Jessica Simpson pair!

  5. dayuum! i can't tell the difference.
