How many of you remember the Dior/Galliano chain-link-and-leather, caged, ankle boots from last year?
Let me refresh your memory:
Well, for those of you who are looking for a (relatively) affordable alternative, Pelle Moda has once again positioned themselves as the ‘designer inspired alternative’ with this boot:
(This was in the hotel boutique when I stayed in Las Vegas last month. Yes, I tried it on. Yes it is an eye-catcher. Yes, I did leave without making a purchase)
Much like the Prada-inspired Pelle Moda shoes that I showed you previously, these are near-knock-offs; with just enough details that are different from the original to keep these from being a 100% faithful copy.
Which do you prefer, the original or the copy?
I actually find that I prefer the copy; the heel is less fussy and allows the chain-link upper to take center stage.
What about you?
