A cheaper alternative to Manolo Blahnik's 'Hangisi' pump

Badgley Mischka 'Lissa' satin peep toe with brooch detail, $169.99 at Piperlime.

If you could remember, I have included Manolo Blahnik's 'Hangisi' pumps in my list of best shoes of 2010. It is probably Blahnik's most popular design. It was popularized by Sarah Jessica Parker and her alter ego Carrie Bradshaw of Sex and the City. Since then, many stars were seen wearing the jeweled pump.

If you are one of the many admirers of 'Hangisi' with a little budget to spare for a pair, you might want to try Badgley Mischka's 'Lissa' pump with the same satin upper and brooch detail like Blahnik's. It doesn't look exactly the same as Blahnik's since Mischka's is a peep toe and the brooch is oval while the latter is rather square, but, it gives the same effect--elegance and sophistication.
