Real vs. Steal – Giuseppe Zanotti for Balmain NE1004 Rhinestone Strappy Sandals

by Velicia on May 28, 2011

I have a friend and her favorite saying is, “I love it when a plan comes together.” – That’s exactly how I feel about the collaboration between Giuseppe Zanotti and Balmain. And what a beautiful plan it was. These rhinestone strappy heels are just what any hot chick on the Hollywood scene needs for the perfect partner in a fashion crime (crime to look so damn good, that is) to compliment any outfit. But of course, if your red carpet moments involve the opening of a local hotspot rather than your latest movie, then you’ll wanna keep reading for great alternatives to this enormously priced $1.295 heel!

Vince Camuto “Aileen” Sandals

Well, hello Aileen! You’re not as flashy as the original, but for a fraction of the price I can learn to love the braided strappy detail; opposed to the flashiness of the rhinestones. By Vince Camuto & available in pale gold or steel gray.

Pour La Victoire “Briller” Sandals

Oh yeah, Houston we have NO problem with rocking this brilliant “Briller” sandal by Pour La Victoire! For a wee bit more money, we get the rhinestones. Not as much glitz as the Balmains (which is to be expected when you don’t drop over a grand), but these heels are still quite hot! Choose from ivory, black or silver satin fabrications.
