Can you imagine a more beautiful pair of classic platform pumps than these by Charlotte Olympia? They are elegant, feminine, and unmistakably special. A pair like this could go with almost everything in our closets, but buying them would leave us with little left over in our wardrobe budget. Want to get a pair just like them for about 14% of the originals’ price? Check out the amazing steal below.

ZiGiny “Kerry” Satin Platform Pumps

Just as gorgeous and classic as their muse, these ZiGiny pumps are the signature shoes of a confident, stylish, and very intelligent girl, especially considering the price. Of course they are an investment, but when buying timeless pieces it’s OK to spend a little more than you would on trendier items. Just imagine how often you’d wear them, I certainly have.

Ahh, the fantasy continues. What fantasy you ask? My loquacious behavior for repeating the name Badgley Mischka (which I wrote about last week). But I will spare you all that today. I’m focused on how to convey the beauty of this red heel. Since I can’t seem to find the words, how about me painting a pretty picture for you?! Picture this: You’re at a glamorous event (Ms. Lady In Red), wearing these and dancing the night away. If you’re anything like me, you’d kick these babies off after dancing 3-4 songs and let others see the maker of your ravishing red heels! I know, I know, it’s a little pretentious, but can you blame me? Dammit for $200, I want to get my money’s worth! What’s a girl to do; competing with all those coveted, insanely expensive red bottom heels out there? ūüėČ

RSVP “Carol” Ruffled Sandals

Um… seriously, what does RSVP do? Sit around waiting for Badgley Mischka to design a heel; to only then, rush to knock it off? Or do I detect a mole? Because they have the BEST copies of Badgley Mischka’s heels! So if you’re not a “label whore” like myself (pin a rose on your nose) and don’t give 2 cents about having a designer label in your shoes, then girlfriend, once again, rsvp for these (ridiculously affordable) “Carol” heels. Which are nearly, undetectable copies of the (ritzy) “Randees”.
