Real vs. Steal – Yves Saint Laurent Palais Yellow Suede Platform Pumps

Update: This post has been updated on April 17, 2012. Scroll down to see the new add.

So I know I blogged about Yves Saint Laurent‘s Palais pumps before, but the yellow version is just so lovely I had to dedicate them a post on their own. I remember first seeing them in yellow on The Shoegirl’s blog who called them her banana shoes (haha, so true! ;)). I have yet to purchase my first pair of yellow shoes… do you own yellow shoes? I’d love to make these YSLs mine, but a) they’re so sold out by now and b) even if they weren’t, they’d be way out of my regular shoe shopping budget, so off I was to search for a more wallet-friendly alternative…

Kelsi Dagger “Abrielle” Platform Pumps

UPDATE (11/17/2011): These Kelsi Dagger pumps are probably one of the most blatant knockoffs I’ve ever come across, but I kind of love them. Why? Because they’re way more accessible at $129.99 than at $700+. Available in yellow, orange, green, blue and black suede as well as black patent.

Promise “Lego” Platform Pumps

As with the blue Palais version, Promise once again comes to a broke fashionista’s rescue. But at that time no one had this knockoff in yellow which changed recently when I spied these YSL look-a-likes at Heels.com. Yes, it’s more of a mustard color than a true sunshiney yellow, but at $54.99 I won’t be the one to complain. Also available in black or fuchsia faux suede.
