Splurge vs. Steal: Cap Toe Pumps

During the spring fashion shows a few months back, I spotted these gorgeous Louis Vuitton cap toe pumps on the runway and fell in love. I immediately looked them up and found that they cost $1000. Sigh. I would have a really hard time spending almost a full month's rent on a pair of pumps even though I know they'd go with so many pieces in my wardrobe. I could picture myself wearing them with dresses, skinny jeans, pencil skirts...pretty much anything!

I started to search for lower priced options in a similar style and came across these Guess 'Myrick' pumps. While they're not dead ringers for the LV pair, they are pretty darn close! The shape of the shoe is the same, but the heel is a bit shorter and they're made of patent instead of regular leather. The cap is gold instead of silver, but overall I really like them! They're also only 1/10th of the cost at $99, so you can't go wrong!

I'm definitely going to go with the steal here and buy the Guess pumps.
What would you do - splurge or steal?
