CELEBRITY STYLE - HIGH STREET BUDGET

That's more like it!


Christian Louboutin 'Bis Un Bout' pumps


You may recall from a previous post that I love the Louboutin neon 'Bis Un Bout' pumps. I've been lusting after them since seeing them on Kim K, Kristen Stewart and La La Anthony last year (yes they are last season, but I still love 'em), but given their celebrity price tag at the time and having already treated myself to the Loubotuin Decollete black patent pumps, I succumbed to the fact that they would never grace my shoe closet or my feet; so imagine my state of euphoria when I spotted these 'lookalikeys' on boohoo.com last weekend!

Boohoo.com 'Chloe' Pumps

It did feel a bit 'wannabe', 'fake' and 'chavvy' to buy such a similar copy, but hey, you can't shoot a girl for trying to look stylish whilst living within her means can you? Some people (mainly those who have about 10 pairs of Louboutins and a couple of Celine bags to their name) say if you can't afford the original, then don't buy cheap imitations; but isn't that what the high street is for? What do you think?

  2. They're amazing! I don't care for brands, or for comments on copies. As long as they're not fakes... And you look fabulous! That's what counts :-D

  8. Can you believe it - last year I got my hands on a pair of neon - yellow bis un bout- I was over the moon and will be rocking them this year again! The more affordable version is looking very good too and especially on you they are fierce!
    And yes, I would also buy something that looks like a copy of some more expensive designer clothing - it's all about style & personality!

  20. Are you kidding me, of course people should buy knock-offs.:D I think those who are paying for the original are getting ripped off, actually... I bought a pair of Zara knock-off clogs from Boohoo last year.:) I've worn them twice so it'd be really stupid of me to pay €80 or whatever they were when I got them for 30. I say you look great with your new babies and truth be told - these heels are HOT.

  24. I don't see anything wrong with buying the imitation ones, in fact I think it's better - you get to purchase something you love but without spending buckets of money! A brand is just a brand! =)

  25. I loooove these shoes! There is a total art to looking stylish on a budget and there's no shame in wearing imitations. If something looks good, it looks good! There's a difference between style & fashion. ;) Your new shoes remind me of the shoes that I just picked up from Target a few weeks back! ;)

    Love your style, glad to be new Twitter friends and will definitely be visiting you on the regular! xoxo.
