Real vs. Steal – Saint Laurent Paris Striped Pumps

by Irina on March 31, 2014

After striped sunglasses, here we have a striped pair of pumps. Courtesy of Saint Laurent. You know I usually prefer to wear my beloved stripes on my clothes, but now that I’ve spotted these pretty heels here I certainly wouldn’t mind to sport them on my shoes either. What I really like about these pumps is the juxtaposition of the canvas fabric against the unexpectedly positioned angle of the stripes. But holy moly, have you seen the price tag? $695! Thanks, but I think I’ll have to pass this time.

What I don’t have to pass on though are these just as good-looking stripey pumps by Cosmopolitan. They’re obviously not a total dupe of the Saint Laurent originals and have a few noticeable differences, the overall look however is just the same. Plus, the price is unbeatable: only $39.99! Now is that a steal or is that a steal?
