Real vs. Steal – Chanel Pearl Flat Sandals

by Irina on July 22, 2015

I didn’t used to be too fond of pearls because I always thought they’re too antiquated and conservative, but ever since Dior’s Mise En Dior Double Pearl Earrings pearls have officially won me over! And of course Chanel can’t do no wrong. Pearls are iconic for the French fashion house and I just love how they incorporated the pearls to the suede sandals below. The design is so minimalistic yet so elegant due to the pearl-embellishment. If you’re not into high heels and need a dressy shoe for summer, these would be perfect! If you can afford them, that is. I’m not sure what the retail price is for these, but since this is Chanel we’re talking about, I’m sure a lot of us can’t stomach the price.

Schutz “Darussa” Pearl Flat Sandals

Luckily, there’s no need to loot our savings accounts because Schutz have an amazingly similar pearl-embellished flat style that would be a great alternative to the Chanel shoes above. They’re not exactly budget-friendly at $160, but definitely a lot more attainable than the real deal. And if you prefer high heels, there’s also a very lovely 4″ high heel version named “Danielle” available at Amazonamazon.

Aldo “Taong” Pearl-Embellished Thong Sandals

Now I know these pearl-embellished thong sandals by Aldo aren’t an identical dupe, but I thought they would still be a good alternative if you’re looking for something Chanel-inspired. And have I already mentioned they’re currently half off for $27.50?! Now that’s what I call a steal deal!
