Fashion Find: Aldo Hidden Platform PumpsShoes are the "it" accessories this season, but most of the brand names are ridiculously expensive.
If you think Manolo Blahnik is outrageously priced at $500 a few years ago, nowadays the much coveted Christian Louboutin hidden platform pumps can set you back at least $700.
Not to mention those Balenciaga gladiator sandals that can cost up to $1,500 a pair. That's $150 per toe, people.
Don't get me wrong. What one considers unreasonably expensive is a personal call. I've certainly done my share of spending in the past, but I just can't justify spending that kind of money for clothes and accessories right now.
That, however, doesn't mean making do with unfashionable choices. Take this Atlantic City pumps by Aldo. Stylish yet reasonable at $100. Who says dollarwise and fashionwise are entirely different things?
