Well, as you may or may not know I am happily addicted to shoes and one of my fave shoe designers is mastermind Giuseppe Zanotti whose designs never fail to amaze me. Half of my wish list consists of his creations and these nautical inspired cork platform sandals were on top of this list for at least half a year. They originally retailed for $695, but even though they’re on sale now they are a) not my size and b) still too expensive for me.

Now look at these babies by Nine West! Think you see double? No, you don’t. Nine West’s “Cawley” Sandals are an almost identical copy of the above shown Giuseppe Zanotti patriotic sandals. I was so excited when I spotted these amazing, budget-friendly alternative. They come so close to the originals it’s almost illegal. ;-) LOVE. LOVE. LOVE!
