About Badgley Mischka

Badgley Mischka Review

Let’s face it, every woman likes to feel glamorous at some time, whether for her wedding, birthday party, or simply an upcoming evening occasion. Badgley Mischka designs luxury clothes and shoes for such special events. They add their own touch to styles from the ‘40s, based on Hollywood glamor, to make you look spectacular.

Badgley Mischka has 488K followers on Instagram and more than 135K followers on Facebook, but I found more impressive is the number of stars who wear the brand. These ladies range in age, style, and body types, yet they all look fabulous in this brand’s attire.

The Badgley Mischka celebrity fans include Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Sharon Stone, Jennifer Garner, Julia Roberts, and believe us, that is only the very tip of the iceberg. Of course, this attention gets the brand regular coverage by the likes of like Vogue, WWD, Brides, etc.

These clothes and shoes are luxury and are therefore expensive. But are they worth the expense? That’s what I will sus out for you in this Badgley Mischka review. I’ll check out the brand’s promotions, products, customer testimonials, and more. 

Overview of Badgley Mischka

Badgley Mischka Review

While in college, studying biomechanical engineering, James Mischka discovered a passion for designing. He entered the Parsons School of Design where he ultimately met and became life, and business, partners with Mark Badgley. Now that’s a true romance.

In 1988, they launched their signature brand in New York (where they remain to this day) and it didn’t take long to find success. In 1992, Escada bought the label and then sold it to Iconix Brand Group in 2004. Fast forward to 2017 and James Mischka, Mark Badgley, and Titan Industries bought back their namesake line.

Until 2006, when dynamic duo Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen launched their own brand, the twins were the Badgley Mischka spokespeople. The iconic Sharon Stone replaced them, but now they have such a following of celebs that they don’t appear to need the clout anymore. Well done, I say.

Before I steer this Badgley Mischka review into this brand’s gorgeous offerings, let’s get a bird’s eye view of what makes this company so great:

I have no clue whether Cher has endorsed these shoes or not, but the celebs, the media, and everyday people are loving the Cher Pointed Toe Evening Pump shoe. 

What seems a plain pointed toe high heel is made spectacular with a rectangular crystal frame above the toes. The heel height is 3.75” stiletto, so high, but not uncomfortably so.

With a foot size between 5.5 and 9.5, you can Believe in yourself in a pair for $225.

When you think of starlets, most of us conjure up images of Marilyn Monroe or Gene Harlow, but some starlets exuded grace and sophistication that the It Girls didn’t have.

Available in a dashing cerise color, this dress hugs all the right places to flatter the curvier, favored body type of the ‘40s. With the mock neck, long sheer sleeves, and mid-calf length, the cocktail dress is modest, yet understatedly sexy.

While the Cher Pointed Toe shoe is good for any temperature, the Badgley Mischka Kiara Embellished Peep-toe Pump is more suited to warmer weather. 

With a 4¾” heel and only a small platform, these are also better suited to those who are experienced with walking in high heels.

The satin fabric and hand-applied rhinestone heel adornment are classy and give a vintage look to the shoes. In sapphire, ivory, latte, and white, these open-toe heels have a color to match every outfit for any dusk ‘til dawn occasion.

Who Is Badgley Mischka For? 

Badgley Mischka Review

Badgley Mischka is for any woman who wants to feel like a glamorous movie star, whether you are petite or curvaceous. 

These clothes are made to catch women in all the right places, so every woman can feel fabulous. They are specially designed for evening and cocktail parties, but you feel free to try them out at the nightclub if you’re feeling daring.

Badgley Mischka is a luxury designer brand, so you have to be able to afford them, but at the same time, they are not priced so high as to be exclusive. 

These are not clothes and shoes that you wear once, nor are they everyday wear. The key is to find enough occasions to get the most out of them. Badgley Mischka also offers financing through Affirm to ease the burden off of treating yourself right.

Badgley Mischka Reviews: What Do Customers Think?

Badgley Mischka Review

No proper Badgley Mischka review would be complete without taking a look at what actual customers are saying about this brand. Let’s dive right in and begin with the brand itself.

Starting off strong, the brand’s website doesn’t list individual product reviews but has a 5/5 star score from over 160 ratings. Customers can’t help but gush about how the brand’s products made them feel.

Take this lovely Badgley Mischka review, for example: “I did try them on and they are stunningly beautiful! I chose a simple outfit and these shoes will definitely be the focus of the ensemble! Although I am well past the princess phase of my life, I DO feel like royalty wearing them. The entire shopping, ordering, receiving experience has been pleasant.”

Wow. Ok. I don’t really know how any other review can top that, but I’ll try and find some other juicy testimonials. Now, let’s talk heels.

The nature of high heels is that they tend to be uncomfortable, and when you’re uncomfortable, you can’t look and feel your best. Apparently, that’s no issue here because this Badgley Mischka review from a customer on Zappos explains just how well these shoes wear:

“I wore these for my wedding and LOVED everything about them! They are so beautiful and despite being incredibly high they are actually incredibly comfortable. I was in them for 12 hours that day and not once needed to take them off.”

Speaking of Zappos, Badgley Mischka has well-deserved 4.5/5 stars on this rating platform.

If you have to discard your shoes before the end of the night, they aren’t worth the price that you paid for them. This Badgley Mischka reviewer, all the way in Australia, felt it worth the price and trouble to import shoes from the US. On the Easy Wedding Australia website she says: 

“You can’t go past a pair of Badgley Mischka’s for your wedding day. My leather was so soft and comfortable they stayed on all day. Extremely happy with my shoes can’t wait to wear them again!“

I love to hear it. Let’s mosey on over to Amazon and see what’s kicking over there. Unsurprisingly, the brand offers a bevy of quality products answered by equally quality and enthusiastic praise from their customers.

The Cher Pointed Toe Evening Pump is a very popular shoe with celebs and normal folks alike. This customer on Amazon explains why and how they compare to a far more expensive shoe: 

“Good price compared. I have wanted the Manolo B. “Hangisi” pumps for years but just couldn’t justify spending $900.00 for shoes so I ordered the Badgley Mischka “Cher” pumps…all I can say is WOW!!! Gorgeous just doesn’t begin to describe these heels!”

Words are great, but numbers are better. Here are some of the ratings for the brand’s top-selling shoes on Amazon:

  • Women’s Gigi Pointed Toe Flat: 4.2/5 stars out of 175 ratings
  • Women’s Kiara Platform Pump: 4.3/5 stars out of over 700 ratings
  • Women’s Cher Pump: 4.5/5 stars out of 185 ratings
  • Women’s Roxy Dress Sandal: 4.6/5 stars out of 130+ ratings
  • Women’s Gorgeous Dress Pump: 4.5/5 stars out of 62 ratings

With all of that in mind, it’s safe to say that customers are pleased with the entire experience from start to finish. I especially commend how many people chose to sport a pair of Badgley Mischka shoes for a day as special as a wedding. 

Is Badgley Mischka Worth It?

Badgley Mischka Review

I don’t even have to think about the answer to whether they’re worth your money. To conclude this Badgley Mischka review, yes, absolutely, the brand is worth it

Who doesn’t want to look stunning, glamorous, and elegant? This brand designs clothes and shoes that harken back to the golden age of Hollywood while adding something uniquely Badgley Mischka.

For a luxury, designer brand, the prices are not bad and they do offer financing plans to take the stress off your wallet. The shoes are more comfortable than most designer heels, making it possible for you to wear them for long periods. 

It is kind of embarrassing carrying your shoes home from a black-tie event or actively changing feet all night to give them a temporary reprieve.

So, the bottom line is – if you can afford the brand, I’d recommend that you check them out for your next big occasion.
