Cheap Thrill: (Almost) Like Gucci Without Spending The Green

green-shoe
We've been itching for a dose of '20s glam ever since we watched Midnight In Paris. To our delight, Gucci's spring collection offered an exciting spate of inspired looks, including these emerald and gold-chained pumps that are almost enough to make us consider that splurge. But then we remembered that whole paying-the-rent thing.

Luckily, we found an alternative that excites us just as much — and keeps the Great Depression in the past. Modcloth's own peep-toe pretties cost peanuts in comparison and still have all the charm as the big-ticket version. Slip these babies on for that glamourous feeling, without all the buyer's guilt.
Gucci Ophelie Two-Tone Open-Toe Pump, $1195, available at Bergdorf Goodman; Modcloth Lady Charm-alade Heel, $47.99, available at Modcloth.
