Say what? Givenchy for less

As you all may know from simply reading this blog and noticing that I have an inappropriate number of references to the Givenchy F/W 2011 collection...I.  LOVE.  GIVENCHY.   Seriously, Iwould wear every single piece from their collection including the floral silk bomber jacket that is semi-80s rapper/ semi-Nigerian street vendor/ semi-old woman.  Love doesn't even describe it.  However, my love for all things gorgeous and delicious means that I would be headed for early bankruptcy (rather than early retirement like I have planned) if I didn't pick and choose my battles with splurges.  Where I can find a similar look for less, I do.  Speaking of which, do y'all remember that show?  I always thought I would make a better host than that chick from the View considering I often wear outfits that cost less than $10.  Anyway, look below and you will see what I mean.  During my junior year of high school I wore a pointy black pump with a metal stiletto heel shoe to prom that I call my mom weekly to ask her to find (she can't) and so while googling 'metal heel' tonight, I came across this amazing shoe.   I am really proud of this find.  The top picture is of course, a shoe from my love--Givenchy.  The bottom, however is from an adult lingerie store. Yes. I said it, sometimes you actually have to shop at hooker shoe stores in order to look fabulous.  Who cares, the Givenchys are over $500 and the very cute on their own-Alex Wang/Givenchy-cross-hooker shoes?  $41.75
Givenchy Wool Covered Pump, $590 found here

Pleaser USA shoe from Lingerie Diva $41.75.  Suck up your pride, click here and buy
