Camper Helena vs. Naturalizer Hoffman: Two T-Straps, Two Price Points


Camperhelenared_2Camperhelenared_2Is itStylishmagazine that has the "Lust/Must" feature? You know what I’m talking about, right? The "lust" the item is usually over $1000 and the "must" The feature is supposedly more budget-conscious, but it’s rarely under $200. Well, I’m making my own ‘lust/must’; post today.

LUST:The shoe above is the Helena Bajo 20535 from Camper. If you’re familiar with Camper Shoes, you know they’re made in Spain and have a definite funky European vibe. The Helena 20535, however, has a more classic, toned-down look than most of the Camper line. I love the crimson patent Leather, the vintage T-strap and the low heel. $159.95 at, free shipping and returns.

Naturalizer_hoffman_2Naturalizer_hoffman_2MUST:The Hoffman Naturalizer will give you the same vintage look for less than Half the price of the Camper Helena. Though not quite as shiny, the Hoffman is a refined T-strap wedge that comes in four widths and three colors. $68.95 at Zappos, free shipping and returns.
