The Prom Shoe: High Vs. Low

Prom is a great excuse to treat yourself to a pair of super glam (and generally impractical) pair of shoes. Might as well go all out with some serpentine, rhinestone embellished sandals—but can you get the look for less? Yep. Here’s a test—we’ve picked two versions: one would not fit into any prom budget in our known universe, the other will still look stellar without cleaning you out. So which is which?

On the right, the pricey pick, a Rene Caovilla Crystal Snake Sandal, $955, from Saks Fifth Avenue; on the left, a perfectly servicable (and kind of fab looking) budget version, the Serpent Sandal, on sale for $49.99, at Bakers.
