Choies.com seems to be big with the LB.nu crowd. I first encountered them there. I'd like to buy as well, the prices are crazy. However, I can't find their location so that I can estimate shipping with out expediting.

i'm 99% sure that they are in china. regular shipping to us would be 10-15 working days but it wouldn't include the "packing" process from the warehouse which is a bit scary. shipping could take a month for all we know. i would, however, be fine were that if the shoes were v. good copies.

^Thanks! They have a lot of fast fashion pieces. They have a 5-15 day option I believe. However, their pieces are a little fast for the price tag, but their are good rip-offs.

I'm absolutely in love with Carey Mulligan's shoes here. I know they're Proenza Schouler, but are there any alternatives that my bank account could actually handle?

cbcb, remember you need to credit each image. it is part of our Community Rules.

i got two valentino rockstud versions from ebay. they are not branded. one is the pink flats and the other is the pink one with the mid heel. very happy with both. i hear that the studs routinely fall off the originals. hopefully that wont happen with mine.

i'm also thinking about getting a version of the balenciaga cut out short boots from the same seller. they would be about $160 shipped. but i just dont know if i would wear them enough.

Lucy, hi, thanks - I read the rules and mentioned it's from Zara (Didn't I? Just above the pic.) What about that needs work - does it need to be at the bottom instead of the top? (Haven't been at TFS in quite a while.)

you mentioned the shoes were from zara, you never specified where the image comes from.

i would keep checking zara, they tend to reissue shoes more often than they do the clothing IMO.
