Real vs. Steal – Chloé Bow-Embellished Suede Pumps

by Celine on March 17, 2010

Every now and again a shoe crosses my radar that I am totally wowed by. The Chloé Bow-Embellished Pump would fall into that category. It is a shoe that remarkably seems to transcend both the barriers of time and style. The shape of the shoe along with the crystal bows and embellishments are vaguely reminiscent, in my opinion, of the overly ornate footwear women wore in the 1700s prior to the French Revolution. And I mean that in the best possible way. But then scroll down and take a gander at how Kristen Stewart was styled while wearing these exquisite heels. She’s totally rocked out and miraculously these shoes seem to fit perfectly. All that inky black suede adds instant edginess but the crystal bows manage to sweeten the whole look. Well, here I’ve been rambling on about the awesomeness that is these shoes and, silly me, not only are they ridiculously expensive but they are also sold out. Sorry about that.

Pour La Victoire “Antoinette” Bow Pumps

Pour La Victoire is a shoe designer I’ve been following for a few years. They make beautiful, original footwear but occasionally they’ll come out with an equally stunning “inspired-by” shoe. Their “Antoinette” Bow Pumps (so perfectly named!) are not exact copies of the Chloés, but they’re similar enough that we can certainly see where the inspiration came from. Crystal bows atop a bed of black satin and a back zip closure, just like the originals. Oh, and a much easier to swallow price-tag. Yum.
