Inspired Alert! Penny Loves Kenny

Remember those embellished Miu Miu flats from last Fall?  This morning, I checked the sales at and was surprised to see an eerily similar Penny Loves Kenny ballet flat in their “Flawless Flats” sale.

I shared a DIY of those gorgeous Miu Miu rhinestone-embellished A/W 2010 ballet flats back in March of this year.  The rhinestones, the bow, the beading, the contrast metallic toe – it’s spectacular!!  Apparently, Penny Loves Kenny thought so too…and these flats are a pretty good lookalike, and a great bargain at only 10% of the price of the originals.

Detail shot of the Penny Loves Kenny version.

If you don’t feel like DIY’ing, you can always just buy this version – and if you get it at Ideeli, they’re on sale for $39.

And if you’re not a member of Ideeli already, you can get on in the sale action with my invite here.

What do you guys think about this?  I think it’s pretty obvious that the lower-priced version is…well, let’s just say it…a blatant knockoff of the Miu Miu design.  Sure there are some dissimilarities, but it’s more similar than dissimilar, if that makes any sense.

Is this okay?  Would you buy it?  Should Miu Miu slap Penny Loves Kenny with a lawsuit?  Discuss!

Don’t Buy, DIY! Miu Miu Rhinestone-Embellished Flats Tutorial

I noticed these beautiful embellished ballet flats in my favorite Japanese magazine, Vivi, back in Winter of 2010.  They’re Miu Miu, available in lovely pastel colors, and boast a pretty hefty pricetag ($745!).

I figured I could make my own lookalikes from a pair of shoes I already had.  And it cost less than $15!  Here’s how…
