The Miu Miu patent bow mary janes (from the Pre-Fall 2011 collection and as seen on Ashley Tisdale) are one of the shoes that I would hit the “like” button on as much as possible if it were allowed.
Given that they retail for $670.00, I was pretty happy to have come across this lookalike from Lori’s Shoes.
I was even happier to see that it’s a really good copycat version, down to the skinny ankle strap, the patent burgundy color and most importantly, the flared column heel:
I appreciate the sexiness of stilettos but right now, flared heels are love. Nothing goes better with the pleated a-line skirts, knee-length dresses, flare jeans and other 70s-style clothing that seem to have slowly overtaken my wardrobe in the past few months.
The Lori’s Bamma bow mary janes with flared heels have a 5 3/4″-high heel and a 1″-thick platform. They also come in these dark grey and camel colors:
They retail for $99.99. You can shop for them at Heels.
If you want to compare, you can find the original Miu Miu patent bow mary janes (now sold out) at Saks Fifth Avenue. You can also find different colors of the Miu Miu bow mary janes in patent leather and suede at Bluefly.
