Splurge or Save Special: Topshop Vectra Pumps

Hi dolls,

Sorry I haven't been able to post this week, I've had the joy of having a wisdom tooth removed and it was trickier than the dentist thought it would be - so still not feeling great as the jaw is swollen and bruised. Makes for a good diet though!!

Anyways because of this I wanted to share with you guys a splurge or save for an early treat as I might not be able to get the post up on Sunday as James and I are going out for our three year anniversary. Normally when I do these posts I focus on makeup but this week I wanted to slightly change that and focus on the very popular Topshop Vectra's.

Now these have been released in different styles - from colour to fabric. But in all honestly I love them all and can understand why they have become a staple piece in many wardrobes.

So I was on Matalans website the beginning of the week and noticed they had released a pair of shoes that were very similar to Topshop's famous Vectra shoes. Once I got these the similarities were evident in person - the only main difference between the two pairs being that the Matalan ones don't have studs going all round the shoes.

However the Topshop pair retail at £28 and the Matalan pair £10 you can see why they are worth every penny and can live without the few extra studs. The Matalan pair are sporting suede so are extremely similar to the original vectors (which as far as I'm aware are not available anymore unless you're willing to pay over the odds on eBay).

Another difference I have found between the two pairs are the sizing, the Topshop pair I own are a size 6 which were tight in the beginning but have since slacked and I have had to have the Matalan pair in a size 7 as the 6 were extremely tight.

I have had these pair of shoes for my holiday and as a spare for when I've ruined my Topshop ones, and I think they are worth every penny. For a tenner they are an absolute steal and can see them selling out very quickly!

So I think if you are after a pair of studded slippers and do not want to pay the hefty Topshop price tag, these are the perfect shoes for you!!

I hope you enjoyed this slightly different post and want to know whether or not you are you on the stud hype?
