If you are a regular reader of fashion blogs or enjoy watching fashion gurus on YouTube then I am sure you have heard of these bad boys, the Jeffrey Campbell Lita. As this is my first Splurge, Spend or Save post I thought the JC Lita would be the perfect item to compare as everyone has gone crazy for the grunge meets 70s disco style shoe boot yet not everyone can afford the price tag that goes along with this ever so popular shoe.
As a proud owner of a pair myself, I can safely say these are the most comfortable heel I have ever worn (yes, it's not just a rumour) and I have a lot of heels. Not only are these shoes comfortable due to the two inch platform, but they are extremely easy to walk in which is a shock to most people as aesthetically they are a tad daunting. Personally I say they are worth the money but if you're looking for a cheaper alternative or something a little more feminine looking then check out my Spend and Save picks below!
SPEND: Topshop: Arielle High Lace Up Boots, £90 (buy here)
I love these lace up shoe boots from Topshop as they hold their own with the unique design yet have a vibe of the Jeffrey Campbell Lita; it is nice to see that the designers at Topshop have used their creativity and the Lita as purely inspiration rather than creating a copycat version like a lot of other brands. The selling point of this shoe to me is the gorgeous curved healed which not only adds a different twist to the design but is very trendy this season and we shall be seeing a lot more quirky heel shapes going into AW12.
SAVE: missguided.co.uk : Poulena Leather Lace Up Shoe Boots, £40.99 (buy here)
Here we have an almost identical pair of shoe boots compared to the JC Lita from missguided.co.uk, so if you're drooling over the Jeffrey Campbells but can't justify spending over one hundred pounds on a pair then you can get these very similar ones for more than half the price - not bad right?
