Dolly Duz Prada's Rose Pumps

Photobucket

I am no stranger to the lure of Prada's siren call.

Each season, guaranteed, la Miuccia delivers a shoe so extraordinary that after fanning myself from from a bad case of the vapors, I cough up the dough and resign myself to myriad tight-beltening exercises that allow me to indulge in that fleeting "hello lover" moment.

When this Floral Heeled Peep Toe first surfaced around Valentine's Day I was beside myself. And apparently so were many of you because it sold out in a New York minute.

Imagine my delight when I received the curiously titled "Dolly Duz" catalog in the mail last night and feasted my eyes on these:

Not exactly the same, but at $142 versus Prada's $590 it'll do in a pinch.

I tried desperately to find these online to no avail. I called the 800 number and was told that the shoe is in stock so if you're in need of a visit from the shoe fairy give them a jingle at: 1-800-383-6559.

And if you have mad Googling skillz and happen to find these Pelle Moda pumps online, please share the love with your shoe obsessed sisters.

Prada has always bothered me when I first see it, until I realize that I love everything. These shoes are no exception. It's a shame the knockoffs don't have that classy peeptoe and instead have a platform, because the flowers look EXACTLY the same to me. (Well, with the knockoffs looking like they've been hyper-colored.)

Hi there -- I knew what you meant here -- I just was looking for a good example of an obvious knockoff and figured I would give you credit for finding it. I didn't take your post as a ringing endorsement or anything :-)
