Get to the Pointe...Shoes for the Ballerina on a Budget

Who doesn't love a pair of fancy shoes?  I know I do and while I adore a beautiful pair of Louboutins, I also love finding an amazing deal on unique footwear.  Last week, a friend of mine showed me an adorable pair of flats she had purchased from  Obviously, I had to browse myself and that's when I found a pair of flats that needed to be mine.  I had been lusting after the nearly $500 version of these shoes for months and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw a nearly identical pair for only $60!  So what are these designer dupes you ask?  They are the Audrey Brooke version of Chloe's Ballet Flats!  Shoe perfection for the ballerina on a budget!

These are the original $485 version from Chloe.  They can be purchased here.  These are made from leather and are available in black, gray, and pink.

BUT, if you want a deal, here's the $60 Audrey Brooke version from DSW!  Like the Chloe originals, these are made from leather and have soft, suede, padded in-soles.  In addition to black, gray, and blush options, DSW also offers a silver version.  

I will admit, I was nervous to see these shoes in person, but I am very pleased.  They're almost like wearing a pair of real ballet shoes, but are a step above your standard pair of flats. DSW sent me a coupon in the mail yesterday, so there's a chance I'll be adding the silver pair to my shoe collection soon!

  1. During the cooling part, the barrel is recharged with material for the subsequent moulding cycle. The injection screw rotates and, end result of} its helical nature, material Direct CNC in granule or powder kind is drawn into the rear end of the barrel from a hopper feed. The throat connecting the hopper to the injection barrel is normally water cooled to forestall early melting and subsequent material bridging giving a disruption of feed. The screw rotation velocity is normally set in rpm which is measured utilizing a proximity change at the rear of the screw. Screw rotation could also be} set as one constant velocity all through metering or as several of} velocity phases.
