Remember the scene in the Sex And The City movie, in which Carrie Bradshaw goes to pick up her blue crystal-embellished Manolo Blahnik’s from the apartment she bought with Big? I never stopped thinking about those shoes and wondering how Carrie could have left them there for the best part of a year collecting dust.

As we all know Carrie got her shoes back in the end, and after years of wishing I’d be able to blow a casual £800 on a pair of heels, I’ve got my wish too. Unfortunately not because I’ve earned myself a hefty bonus, but because Zara has released a pair of diamante-embellished slingback heels that look identical to the Manolo Blahnik’s in question – and they’re only £59.99.

The shimmery mid-heel slingbacks come in both cobalt blue and magenta pink, with a similar embellishment to Manolo’s recognisable crystal buckle, with a pointed tip and square sole.

After spotting Zara’s new in shoes, I couldn’t help but wonder whether any more shops were selling Manolo Blahnik dupes, so I started hunting online for embellished heels. While Zara are my personal favourites, I found some incredible heels from Badgley Mischka for a mid-way budget and River Island for a cheaper option.

Of course, you can also buy some diamanté shoe clips and add them to a pair of stilettos in your closet. Amazon has a pair for under £15 that work perfectly.
