Real vs. Steal – Fendi Jardin Suede Platform Pumps

by Velicia on October 5, 2010

DISCLAIMER: I may be a little biased in writing this post. Why? Because I LOVE Fendi! My obsession began back in the day when I was modeling and I’m still feigning after everything Karl Lagerfeld and the Fendi sisters design. My first passion was for their delicious baguette bags (I have 6), now it’s their shoes. Especially this Jardin pump. If my French serves me correctly, jardin translates to garden in English and that’s how I’d feel if I had these – in a virtual Garden of Eden!

Anne Michelle Essence-35 Platform Pumps

This inspired version by Anne Michelle is really a great buy. But you won’t get the deep grey color nor the double platform. Consolation prize – you get to save A LOT of money!

Nine West “Expoze” Pumps

Nine West will “expoze” you to this great pump as well – just at a higher price. But their version is of a darker grey with an extra purple stripe. And yet, still missing that key design element of the double platform. Personally, I wish someone had chosen to do this in the burgundy suede (so much hotter). But I guess if you wanna go cheap, you can’t be choosy!

  • I totally agree. These shoes are simply breathtaking and absolutely beautiful. But I’m still not sure if I prefer them in red or in grey. I think that depends on your outfit.
    I love how Mary-Kate and Ashley wore them but I can’t choose who wore it better. They both looked fantastic.

    By the way, I totally understand your Fendi obsession. Seems like we have something in common. The only difference is that you own 6 bags (so jealous!) and I don’t, haha. ^_^

  • Thanks Sophia for your comment. I sometimes look @ all my Fendi bags and wish I had Fendi stock instead..LOL! But I’m such a girly gurl-wouldn’t ever give up my bags! BTW, check consignment stores in ritzy areas for baguette bags. A lot of gurls traded in their bags, after the initial rush/wait list/SEX & The City series went off.

    Have a good one, my Fendi Friend!

  • I absolutely adore the Fendi original and I think Zoe wore them best. I have a cheaper version by Jessica Simpson that I absolutely adore!!! They are grey and black like the original and capture the feel of that oh so high double platform too!

  • Hi Chic Mommy! So, so happy that you got that beloved double platform-yaaaayyy you’re a HOT MAMA now!!!
