Hey babes! Today we are talking about shoes! Who doesn't love shoes, am i right? As you all probably know by now, because you have probably seen everyone and their mother's using gladiator sandals every where, you should know that it is the statement piece of the season. It was last season too but it came back again and with a bigger impact. I had first seen a BEAUTIFUL one on the mannequin of Valentino on Newbury st. Leave it to Maison to always take our breaths away. Of course i can't afford the Valentino ones, so we always opt out for cheaper look a likes. I actually have to VERY VERY close pair to the Valentino ones. One cheaper than the other but both same quality. I have a brown/ chestnut color one from MANGO and a black one from ZARA. Zara is always coming out with awesome dupes for whatever these big name brand houses have. Obviously the Zara ones were more expensive than the MANGO ones. My black Zara ones are $159 and the Mango ones were $39. The only thing is they start with size 6, so if you wear anything less than a 6, sorry! Luckily I fit in anything between 5-6.
The Zara ones are closer to the Valentino one than Mango. The reason being, it goes higher up and it has the zipper strap in the back. The Mango one is a tie up all the way. I am so happy i found these two cheaper alternatives. Have any favorites? I'll be posting looks up soon with the ones I have.
Shoes are just a pedastal. What interests me is the power of the woman who wears them.
