Real vs. Steal – Dior Tahiti Ankle Wrap Platform Pumps

by Irina on June 11, 2011

I usually don’t get the OMG! SHOES!-fever when it comes to Dior because I tend to associate this brand with one-of-a-kind couture shows in Paris and luxuriously packaged beauty products rather than lustworthy heels but with these colorblocked ankle wrap stunners Dior has found a new fan in me! I love it when shoes take me places and this aptly named “Tahiti” pump does exactly that; it makes me think of a vacation somewhere on a Caribbean island. But while I love to fantasize how I flaunt these heels in Tahiti, at $1.550 per pair this is so not going to happen!

Jeffrey Campbell “Munroe” Lace-Up Pumps

While not as detailed as the original, these lace-up heels by Jeffrey Campbell will give you the same fun look as Dior but for a fraction of the cost. At $149.95, there’s certainly more left in the budget for a possible vacation to Tahiti! I also low how these come in other fun color combos such as aqua/yellow (check out Solestruck for that!).

  • OMG. Love at first sight. I don’t know where I’d wear these in Alberta, but I might have to buy the JC pair anyway….

  • These shoes are a great find! now I gotta fit them into the “3 outfit” rule!

  • I was just about to buy these when I came across this post! I guess bright statement shoes really are in. Love the one’s on Karlie Kloss!

  • My Response

    one of the ugliest pair of shoes i’ve ever seen

  • Mari

    Wow! Thanks for posting this. I was obsessing over the Dior’s and ended up buying the JC’s what a great find. They are comfy despite the 6″ heel. Wore them out the first day I bought and got tons of compliments.

  • Glad we could help you out here, Mari. Post a pic of you in your JCs if you can. Would love to see them in RL pics! 🙂
