Real vs. Steal – Giuseppe Zanotti I96016 Rhinestone Embellished Pumps

by Celine on April 20, 2010

The design house of Giuseppe Zanotti has been coming out with quite a few embellished heels lately and to be brutally honest, they’re not my favorite. I do like the blingy-ness (if you will) of these I96016 (huh?) Rhinestone Embellished Pumps but there’s something not totally luxe looking about them. I feel like I’ve seen pumps just like this in some of the lower end stores and I gotta tell ya, that kind of rubs me the wrong way. To ask me to pay $500 for a pair of easily dupable heels…uh uh. Sorry.

ALDO “Endow” Peep-toe Pumps

See, what’d I tell ya? These ALDO “Endow” pumps may not be exact copies of the originals but they’re pretty darn close. It looks like they may have even used the same bijoutier for those rhinestones. I’m a fan of the rich black suede but most of all I’m a fan of the price: $44.98 sounds a lot more suitable for these pumps, don’t you think?
