Battle of the Brands: the Basic Sandal


Zara "Basic Sandal" circa 2012, SOLD OUT! $49.90

Did you miss out on the original Zara Basic Sandal? I sure did, and had absolutely no luck finding them last year. Well it has been about a year later and I have already given up on ever finding them, unless I can go on eBay and pay a few times its original retail value. No thanks, but who says I've got to give up and move on, right ladies?

So... here are some of the closest dupes I could find.

Jessica Simpson "Sawana" $89.99
Heel ht: 4 in

Jessica Simpson "Sawana" $89
Heel ht: 4 in

Nine West "Acre" $89

Heel ht: 4 in.

Chinese Laundry "Lucky Charm" $69
Heel ht: 4 in


JustFab "Carilo" $49.99
Heel ht: 4 in

Delicious "Stick" $26
Heel ht: 4.25 in

Some gorgeous duplicates!
I know, I was so sad to have missed out, but I found some fabulous pairs at Lulus. I'll share the link actually - they're pretty good copycats and WAY affordable! http://www.lulus.com/products/anne-michelle-enzo-01-black-ankle-strap-sandal-heels/69138.html

I probably shouldn't tell you that I bought a pair of the Zaras clearance for $25 and then I sold them, because they didn't fit me right...but looks like you've found some great alternatives! The Chinese Laundry & JustFab versions are my favorite. I think the heel is a cleaner look.
Also, if you bought the TB Pacey flats, please let me know if you find them comfortable and how you like them on! =]

These shoes are lovely. I badly wanted to have a basic one ever since. But I can't seem to find the perfect pair!

Nice collection.
I loved the multicolored "Nine West" the most.
Sadly I can't wear the heel shoes.
Do you have any collection of flat sandals?
