Real vs. Steal – Casadei 3114 Satin Platform Pumps

Are you guys familiar with the Italian shoe designer, “Casadei“? I wasn’t either until recently, when I came across a stunning pair of their platform pumps. They were very old Hollywood glamour meets modern day woman and I was immediately a fan. Even though many of their heels measure at least 5 inches, I’ve heard only wonderful things about their level of comfort. I am particularly enamoured with Casadei’s 3114 Satin Platform Pumps. There’s not a whole lot going on with this shoe, besides classic construction, but I think you’ll agree that these would be a perfect bridal pump, among other things. Unfortunately, not sure if you caught a glance at their retail price, but that is in fact a 9 before the 50. Yes, they’re currently on sale, but that’s still a whole lotta dough.

RSVP “Maison” Satin Peep-toe Pumps

Even though I often wax poetic on the beauty of a 5 inch heel, let’s be honest: if you have to wear the shoes ALL night, a 4 incher is probably a better choice. That’s why I love these RSVP “Maison” pumps we found. They are almost identical to the Casadei originals, but the heel looks way more manageable, as does the price. These are available in a whopping 6 colors, which means there’s a shoe for every occasion, and every girl.

ALDO “Orpin” Peep-toe Pumps

ALDO‘s “Orpin” pump is dressed in suede and not satin but otherwise all the classic details are there to make this a knockout shoe (as well as a darn good knockoff). Taupe shoes are huge for Spring but I’m especially in love with the turquoise color – they would look spectacular with any LBD. Available in taupe, coral or turquoise suede.
