Real vs. Steal: Miu Miu Lace-up Ballerinas

If there’s anything doing more rounds on Instagram than #SelenaendedJustinparty, it’s Miu Miu’s super famous lace-up ballerinas from their spring/summer 16 collection. No wonder they’re being super hyped at the moment – I mean who doesn’t want to look like a ballerina with attitude – basically a badass ballerina? I must admit though that I jumped on the bandwagon a tad late. Why? I’ve always thought they were gorgeous and unusual but for whatever reason I didn’t think they would actually suit me.

Weeks later off I went to Miu Miu to try them on and BOOM! There it was: LOVE😍😍😍. I really liked them on me which I didn’t expect at all and they’re basically two ballet flats in one. When you feel quite edgy you can wear them with the ribbons and when you’re feeling a bit more classic just take off the ribbons and they still look fab just with the leather straps. What do you think of Miu Miu’s latest it shoes? Excited to hear your opinion!

P.S.: I’ve listed some more colour options below and also some lovely and affordable dupes. I’m loving Zara’s metallic silver version.
