Real vs. Steal – Saint Laurent Paris Classic Pointed Toe Pumps

I’m always on the fence whether it’s worth splurging on designer shoe staples or not? Take this pointed black pump by Saint Laurent for example. It is basically a simple black pump without any outstanding features and I’m sure there are dozens of similar looking shoes that are way cheaper than $625. Yet when I look at how the pumps look worn, it becomes clear to me that these shoes – even though they don’t have any distinctive features that make these pumps stand out – are designed to absolute perfection. From the arch to the supple leather and the perfectly shaped heel… and let’s not forget about the craftmanship of designer shoes made in Italy. If I had $625 free to spend and would be in need of black pumps, these Saint Laurent heels would be my choice!

Jeffrey Campbell “Dulce” Pointed Toe Pumps

Alright, I get that most of us don’t have budgets that allow a $625 shoe purchase, that’s why I would like to introduce you to these just as fab pumps by Jeffrey Campbell. It’s so unusual to see such a simple shoe design coming from Campbell since they’ve been mostly doing OTT shoes for the last few years, but these simple black high heel pumps are a nice, refreshing change. I absolutely love the elegant design of these Jeffrey Campbell pumps and the shape is so similar to that of the Saint Laurent heels. Available in black and yellow leather as well as gray and red suede.
