Not so long ago the Jeffrey Campbell Michelle, aka "Unicorn", heel was exceptionally popular. This whimsical heel was sold out all over the place, but is back in stock and available in shiny black patent, shiny gold, a beautiful nude and a subtle gunmetal.
The unique piece of this shoe was the spiral hell but much of the allure came from the flirty ruffles that cupped the heel and showcased your ankle.
So it's no surprise that I stopped in surprise when I saw a strikingly similar ruffle on this Carlos by Carlos Santana Venetian d'Orsay pump.
I don't think the lines of the Carlos shoe are as pretty and the price-points are nearly the same. The influence is obviously there.
Which version do you prefer?
Carlos by Carlos Santana Venetian Pump - in black, blue, tan and red - $99
Jeffrey Campbell Michelle Peep-toe - in black, black patent, gold, nude and gunmetal - $119.95
