See bottom of post for update.
I received an email from a reader awhile ago looking for an alternative to the Lanvin chain link pumps which retail for $1075 at Barneys.
Unfortunately a good alternative has not become available, but I was happy to see one of my favorite blogs ...love Maegan did an amazing DIY post on these shoes. Click here to view her post, and don't forget to look around at the rest of her amazing DIY fashion. I also searched around for a few options to get you started if you're interested in creating your own Lanvin style pumps. Click on any of the photos below to purchase/for more information.
*Update = 12/19/10* - Miss Me now has a great alternative to the Lanvin pumps if you're still looking for a pair. They retail for $49.95 and come in several colors. Click on the photo below if you're interested in purchasing!
