Balmain Crystal Studded Heels vs. Zara Studded Heels
Okay, maybe this is not exactly the right content for my blog. But I am just fascinated by Balmain's look for women this season. But more so by the 'bravest' pricing attempts I have seen recently for clothing. Though I love the slim 'trashy' look which actually translates well to real woman...I almost 'heart-attacked' when I found out the prices for the runway pieces.
So for those lady Balmain fans...cheaper alternatives are a must! And good news...the much featured crystal studded shoes has a less pricey cousin:-P
Besides the TDF military jackets (Approx. US$5075) and acid washed jeans (Approx. SGD$2986), the crystal studded 'tranny' heels is one of the most recognisable offerings for this spring summer 2009. Seeing the price tag is set at a 'heavenly' level of € 1,475 (almost SGD$3000...it's ridiculous!), you cannot blame cheaper copies of this shoe sprouting all over. Zara has a similar pair available and priced at affordable SGD $279. Not really great minds thinking alike, more like 'blatant' copying. But it's for the benefit of most woman!
So what will you choose?
