Real vs. Steal – Giuseppe Zanotti Minny Vernice Papavero Pumps

by Irina on November 25, 2009

Every year, weeks before the holidays I start dreaming up my perfect festive holiday outfit. I always try to incorporate some red, green and gold into it so I would look like I am part of the christmas tree decor. This year, I think I will go with an emerald green dress, gold accessories and red shoes. These red Giuseppe Zanotti cork platform pumps below would make the perfect shoes for my holiday outfit, but even though they’re on sale (original retail price $688) they’re still too pricey for me.

If you’re trying to save some cash for the holidays, but don’t want to cut back on your style, try these red Nine West platform pumps instead. Yes, they replaced the shiny red patent leather with a basketweave textured upper, but everything else (the straps, shape and cork platform) is pretty much the same as on the real deal. They’re also so much cheaper and come in either red, black or blue.

    I honestly prefer the Nine West pair….I love the texture to the leather….and the price is fab too!
