Can You Tell Which Blue Velvet Booties Cost $545 More?

We already told you about how incredibly popular velvet dresses will be this fall, and that trends extends itself to other areas, too–velvet shoes, velvet accessories, velvet outerwear. They’re all going to be huge. In fact, it’s officially the fabric of the season–Fashionista.com called it “the fabric of our lives for 2016.” Designers like Jill Stuart, Alber Elbaz of Lanvin, Gianvito Rossi, Rebecca Minkoff and even J.Crew, all showed it in their lines.

Basically everyone in fashion is freaking out about velvet–and you should, too, bcause it’s so incredibly comfortable, warm and expensive-feeling (even when it’s faux). There couldn’t be a better material for the season–we’re psyched.

Anyways, velvet shoes are a trend I’m eyeing currently, and today when shopping for a pair I came across these incredible dupes: two pairs of blue stretch velvet booties that look almost identical. I love the idea of crushed velvet booties for fall–shoes are always the first thing I buy for a new season, and they are a low-risk and high-reward way to embrace or try a new trend. Blue velvet booties are a great expression of this season’s velvet craze–they definitely make a statement, but within the realm of reason. Your co-workers and friends won’t think you’re crazy or trying to look like Stevie Nicks from the 1975s, wearing a head-to-toe crushed velvet suit with a matching hat. It’s subtle. And since you already plan to wear booties all fall, why not get a new pair?

Back to the identical pair of blue stretch velvet booties I found. One pair is $695 and from 3.1 Phillip Lim. The other is a more reasonable $150 and from Rebecca Minkoff.

Can you guess which is which?? Click to find out the answer:
