Gucci "Bouvier" High Heel Moccasin
Available at: BergdorfGoodman.com
I get that the shoe business is one big copycat game. One label comes out with a hot new design and suddenly there are fifteen others just like it. C'est la vie. But sometimes the similarities are just uncanny. Here's a perfect example.
I've been eyeing these super hot Gucci Bouvier High Heel Moccasins (left) at Bergdorf Goodman, my personal shopping heaven. They are classic and timeless, but with a certain va-va-voom look that screams Gucci. I'm in love. I'm also incredibly depressed because my pocketbook can't take a $495 hit just for the sake of hot shoes.

Enter the BCBGirls "Motia" Loafer Pump. Ok, it will never, ever be as amazing as a Gucci heel, but for 1/5 the price of the Gucci Moccasin it's a fab shoe for the money. I'd pair it with my favorite jeans for an upscale casual look that is perfect for lunch with the BFFs or a day of shopping. It gives off the same classic vibe as it's designer sister, but at a price that won't make you cry if you scuff it running for the half price cashmere table at your next sample sale.
