Who doesn’t wish they had a stash of cash stockpiled somewhere in a bank account? Who doesn’t crave the latest designer duds? Who doesn’t spend hours on net-a-porter.com (or others like it) making endless wish lists? I know that more times than not, I find myself shouting “me” in answer to all of these questions. In steps PARALLEL PRICES. Lack of dinero may be a major issue, but that shouldn’t stop one from always looking the part. Why spend way more than necessary on designer pieces when there are similar designs out there?
YVES SAINT LAURENT. Palais suede peep toe pumps. It’s all about the crazy curved heel when it comes to the Palais pump; while the peep toe keeps things sexy. These are the perfect shoe to dress an outfit up or down and can take a simple pair of jeans and tee to new heights. With a price tag of £500 these are definitely something to save up for, unless you are blessed with a healthy bank balance.
KURT GEIGER. Miss KG Adorn. These may not come from the legendary design house Yves Saint Laurent, but these pumps from Kurt Geiger still pull their weight. The black suede and slightly curved heel is almost identical to the Palais pump, and your friends will still be fawning all over them. And at a slashed price of £35 in the sale, you really couldn’t ask for a better bargain!
JIMMY CHOO. Cosmic suede pumps. Every woman has (if not needs) a pair of simple black pumps that can take her from day to night effortlessly. Something that looks sleek, sexy and pulls every look together. With Jimmy Choo you can’t go wrong, especially with these pumps from the Jimmy Choo 24:7 capsule collection. Perfect for a night out with the girls or a date, pair with dark jeans or an LBD and you’re good to go.
TOPSHOP. Stare2 platform pointed courts. These Topshop courts look as though they could have been separated at birth from the Cosmic pumps, with similar suede finishes and a matching five inch heel. The only difference is the price tag. Priced at a stunning £50 there is no excuse to not have them. They may not be Choo’s but let me assure you, they’re the next best thing!
Let me know what you think of these reduced finds and I’ll be on the lookout for some more parallel prices.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
