I will try to summarize what was discovered, my pics may not be the best but work with a sleep-deprived, heartbroken, emotionally unstable Diva!
Exhibit A - Christian Louboutin Simple Nappa Pump, a classic closet essential with a 4" heel:
The segment was on the physical difference (minus the signature, patented red sole of CLs) between a $600 Christian Louboutin, black patent leather pump and a $20 Fiono, black patent pump from Payless. Immediately I thought, "who the hell would question that.....hello, LOUBOUTINS should NEVER be questioned" but then as I listened they did actually prove a gosh darn point - after a day of polling fashion elite New Yorkers on the street, 40% of those polled actually chose the Payless shoe as the more expensive one! Even the Divas who own numerous pairs on Louboutins chose the Payless shoe!!
Exhibit B - Payless Fioini Hilt Pump, versatile patent leather pump that is perfect for every occasion with a 3.75' heel:
They are almost identical, hence fashion is not a luxury......but luxury sure does sweeten the shoe pot! (I may be slightly off the mark from my normal DIVA self but the shallowness always remains! lol)
