Isabel Marant “Poppy” on a budget

09/11/2012

If you don’t recognise these shoes, you must have been living in a parallel Universe where neither fashionista nor Isabel Marant ever set their foot… And if any of the abovementioned names do make your heart skip a beat, then you would definitely need to continue reading.

Isabel Marant Fall/Winter 2010 ready-to-wear collection
The thing about Isabel Marant designs is that, whether you want it or not, they get under your skin and penetrate brain cells as soon as you see the looks on a runway. Isabel Marant is like a fashion equivalent to sweets(or whatever food delight you find most irresistible) – she knows how to give you the strongest craving for something you cannot have in large quantities, if at all…

Isabel Marant Fall/Winter 2010 ready-to-wear collection
Although I would not exactly consider myself an Isabel Marant aficionado (Vanessa Bruno is more me in case you are interested), there are designs that even I remember vividly…

Isabel Marant Fall/Winter 2010 ready-to-wear collection
Take her “Poppy”, for example. They were everywhere. I loved the red version and my desire to have a pair of red pumps was likely caused by the memory. However, since I am pretty calm towards Isabel Marant I didn’t find it essential to rush out, credit card at the ready, to get the shoes.

Imagine my delight when I found a much more affordable version of “Poppy” pumps – identical and in the most gorgeous (and perfect) shade of red.
So let me demonstrate…

This is a pair of “Poppies”…

And this is a pair of “Eliza’s”…

If you can’t spot the difference and would absolutely love to have a pair, “Elisa” pumps can be yours for less than £40/$60. Impressed? So was I. And yes, I did place an order. Follow the link to buy them on-line.
