More or Less: Christian Louboutin Coussin lookalike – Boutique 9 Val by Nine West
The Christian Louboutin Coussin is definitely a hot cage ankle bootie that can be worn with a variety of looks – skirts, dresses, boyfriend jeans, leggings, you name it – for instant sex appeal. The Coussin in black has been out for a few months, but now we also have a spring-ready beige version available for preorder at Saks. Of course, you’ll have to shell out $1,595 to rock this style and, I don’t know about you, but my spring shoe budget isn’t quite there yet.
But, there’s a similar option that is equally hot and available for a much lower price. Actually, if I’m being honest, I like this style even better! The Boutique 9 Val is a gorgeous woven caged bootie with extra details – like the bow adornment at the ankle, open toe and side cutouts – that make it even more lust-worthy in my book. You can get these in beige or black at Nine West on preorder for $199. Shipping is also free for a limited time. The only downside? They don’t ship until 5/11/10. That seems like forever when you’re waiting on a pair of shoes like this one!
