Penney’s v’s Christian Louboutin: The Bandage Boot.

Left, Christian Louboutin, right Penney’s (Primark).

I forgot to mention yesterday, what with all the talk of new hair, I got new boots too. I fell in love with the Christian Louboutin Nitoinimoi Bandage boots when I saw them, (especially the blue suede ones with black leather straps). It seems that Penney’s (Primark) have come to my rescue. They have cheekily done their own version, not in leather and suede for over €1000, but in (ahem) faux suede and elastic for €21. Ah, I’d be mad no to for that price, they’ll hopefully last the season, though stupidly I got the grey ones. They also come in black which would have been a more sensible choice but pah! I like ’em and I don’t get why people get so uppity about high street ‘versions’. Who are people kidding when they say it puts designers out of business? If I could even remotely afford the Christian Louboutin originals I’m afraid it would be adios Penney’s and I’d wager that would be the attitude of most women. (wow, what a well rounded argument Whisty). Happy pre-christmas bargain hunting peeps!

    Ha ha i spotted that too, got them in grey also, i literally couldn’t stop staring at my feet all night and they were comfortable, the grey stands out more than the black too, much nicer!

      I seriously don’t know how they get away with it Eimear! I’m not complaining though, I was doing the exact same thing, though I did see about 3 girls last night wearing the black ones so glad I (and you) went with grey now! x

    Well good on ya Whisty! It’s just wonderful that we’re all checking in with huge doses of reality at last. I LOVE penneys and daresay like you would go for the more expensive versions if I could afford them, mainly because my feet pong something shocking when I yank off my Penneys plastic! I fact I’m ranting a bit in my own blog at the moment about hugely expensive face creams. Best of luck!
