Missoni Look-a-likes

Posted on March 28, 2007. Filed under: Beauty & Fashion |

We Latinas love our colors and stripes. We hardly ever settle for boring old solids or blacks and whites. And Latinas also love brand names. So when I saw these ballet flats in an Aldo store window, I knew that I had to spread the word. These shoes look a lot like a pair of Missoni’s slip-ons. What’s the difference? While the Italian designer flats are more than $300, these striped flats are only $39.99. Usually, it’s suggested to splurge on shoes, especially because heels have to be of the best material to properly support your lovely toes. But it’s a different story with flats. They’re usually for slipping on when you’re going to the store real quick and also for walking around town. The point is that that most likely, you’ll trash them by the end of the summer. So why spend so much money on slip-ons, when you can get a real deal somewhere else. Who can be cheap and chique at the same time? You can, you thrifty trend-setting Latina 😉
