Real vs. Steal – Jimmy Choo Vamp Platform Sandals

What is it about pink platforms in the wintertime that makes me smile? Aahhh, the perfect cure for the winter blues (well… besides a good hot toddy)! And Jimmy Choo‘s “Vamp” is making me feel all warm and tingly. But what’s scaring me is the shocking price tag – $750, really? OK, that won’t be happening this winter or the next; which is why the steal below will be just fine.

Nine West “Krysten” Sandals

Update (02/13/2012): Although the heel of this Nine West shoe is not as elegant as on the real deal, it still very much mimics the Jimmy Choo design, doesn’t it?

Dune “Gwnyeth D” Strappy Sandals

It’s cold outside, but I’m dreaming of sand dunes. Well, actually I’m daydreaming about “Gwnyeth D” by Dune. So cute, so pink & so affordable! But if you aren’t trying to emulate Barbie by wearing pink heels, then you’re in luck. You can get this heel in black, plum and teal satin as well as black/taupe glitter. Hot toddy anyone?
