Last night I went to the mall and found these pumps at Steve Madden. I stared for a little while, tried to instagram a picture so the rest of the world could indulge (but the lighting was too bad) and left with a pair for myself.

They slightly resemble Valentino but the sharper bow and stripper platform make this inspired version so much more VENZedits.

Valentino version: Charlotte York

Steve Madden version: Carrie Bradshaw/ Samantha Jones hybrid
