More or Less: Gucci Babouska Look-Alikes
The Gucci Babouska, which was worn by Whitney Port on The City, is definitely a hot style. So hot, in fact, that I couldn’t find the sandal version for sale anywhere at the time of my Whitney Port post, so it appeared to be a sold-out style. However, it is available for sale at Bluefly. The sandal is $995 and the ankle boot is $796, although only a couple sizes are left for each. So, let’s face it, the limited availability and rock-star price tag hinder most of us from trying these out.
Enter Babouska look-alikes to save the day. If the Babouska sandal and the Babouska ankle boot were to magically combine and instantly become more economical, the result would be this Colin Stuart Strappy Studded Sandal. It’s available from Victoria’s Secret for $98 and, if your order is over $100, use coupon code FREE100 to get free shipping until 10/20/09. Update: New Victoria’s Secret code SAVE20 takes 20% off one item until 10/18/09. That makes this pair $78.40 instead.
