I was browsing in Nordstroms (because what else do I have to do on a Saturday afternoon), and I could not believe my eyes! Sitting right in front of me was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen! Sam Edelman has come out with the Ollie T-strap Pump! You all probably have no idea why I am so excited about this…
Well… Over the last year, Valentino has had their Rockstud Patent T-Strap Pump on the market! They are the perfect pump for any occasion! They come in an assortment of colors, and the studs add an edgy pop to a very feminine style! However, they are $945… I do not have that money laying around anywhere, and if I did, I would have bought three pairs already! Well, Sam Edelman has their Ollie pump, which is an exact replica of the Valentino pump, but for a much cheaper price!
Obviously it cannot compare to the luxury of an item like a pair of Valentinos, but for a girl on a very strict budget it’ll do! They give you the same style for much less. The only evident difference is that they only come in two colors for now, and the studs are more subtle than the Valentino! On the plus side, they offer the style of a T-Strap pump without suffering from extreme buyers remorse after!
Of course, if you can afford the Valentino, then go and purchase them, girl! But, if you are like me and need something a little less pricey, I recommend the Sam Edelman! Either way, the style is necessary for every girls closet! The T-Strap Pump is a must no matter what the brand is!
