Chanel Dupes and Cream Boucle

Along with the rest of female-kind, I was recently captivated by the Chanel toe-cap sling backs. But, with the price tag hovering around the £400 mark, I'm neither able nor willing to make such a purchase due to 1. I am not currently in possession of £400 to drop on shoes & 2. I'd never wear them. Quite honestly, I can't see myself ever spending such an amount on a pair of shoes, and not because I think you shouldn't or I think it's silly - the contrary, I can't quite grasp the fact that I would strap to my feet and walk around in something so beautiful and expensive. They literally go on the floor. I would feel guilt with every step. I would genuinely just feel too scared to walk around in them. Also, I can't help but feel that in part, they are a trend - and knowing myself to be quite a fickle person when it comes to clothing and accessories, I'd have grown bored of them by August. So - when Topshop recently dropped their take on the much sought after slingback, I saw them as a perfect alternative. If I dirty them up, it's not the end of the world. If I get bored of them, it's not the end of the world either. No walking around in fear of pavement-dwelling chewing gum or something even more unpleasant. Ideal! So, you'll find me trotting around in these silver, block heel, toe-capped Chanel dupes for the foreseeable future. 

What do you think?
