Splurge vs. Save: d'Orsay Flats

Watch out ballet flats, d'Orsay flats are coming through! With their pointed toe, open sides revealing the arch of the foo,t and a closed back heels, d'Orsay style shoes are subtly sexy. Jenni Kayne's d'Orsay flats are a coveted cult favorite and offered in a rainbow of tempting colors. Now, luckily for those of us that don't have a spare $500 to invest, brands from Forever 21 to Chinese Laundry have introduced more affordable versions.

Platinum: Jenni Kayne $695; Gold: Vince $295; Silver: Steve Madden $100; Bronze: Chinese Laundry $60

Like a little black dress, we all need that perfect little black flat in our closet. Of course I'm drooling over the most expensive pair - Jenni Kayne's patchwork d'Orsay flats. I would say a close second for me (besides her green suede versions) would be Steve Madden's classic and sleek rendition. What do you think, are d'Orsay flats a splurge or a save item for you?

  5. YES, these are super fab! Although I'd have to wear some kind of "little sock" and it would show, so these might not be for me. ;(

  15. Any and every thing from Vince goes directly onto my wish list! Love these flats - though I think I would have to go with a bright color for spring!
