Charlotte Russe Has Miu Miu "Inspired" Glitter Booties

You guys. I don't know. I don't know why. I don't know how. I don't know what possessed me. I think it was the guilt of shallowly, sadly coveting not my neighbor's wife's designer shoes. Her Miu Miu glitter booties. Specifically her glitter booties. I have anguished over my inner desires. And then I snapped. The stress holding back the trestles supporting the dam of my self-restraint broke open like so many dried out twigs ready to ignite. And I bought these Charlotte Russe Miu Miu "INSPIRED" glitter booties. The cheap, five-dollar whore version of the untouchable painted ladies. And what's worse? I BOGO'ed and got the second pair for $15.50. And what's worse than that? I used a promo code (SCREAM11) and got $5.
Can you spot the fakes? Of course you can.

Do I expect anyone to mistake my Charlotte Russe glitter booties for the real-deal Miu Mius? No, of course not. Did spending $59.99 for two knockoffs feel good? Yes, of course.
My shame knows no depth. My bottom is bottomless.

PS: Before you go pointing the finger, Steve Madden's got glitter boot knockoffs
and Topshop does too. Which doesn't, of course, make it right. I'm just rationalizing my guilt by widening my net of shame and blame.

$160, Topshop
