These €19 heels are very like a designer pair of Pippa's

Love, love, LOVE these.

No point skirting around it - not many people can fork out for high-end bits on a whim.

We all love wandering around Brown Thomas and staring longingly at the fancy shoes and bags but for most, that's as close as we'll ever get to those pricey designer items.

That's why, if we haven't mentioned it a million times before, we're weak for a good dupe.

We've spied these stunning Alaïa heels on a few celebs, including Pippa O'Connor.

They're a solid wardrobe staple - you can't go wrong with a pair of nude heels - but are fairly costly at €880.

Once again it's Penneys to the rescue - they've heels in at the moment that'll make do until we save up all our shekels for the real things.

Admittedly, they're not identical but are definitely Alaïa-inspired and for €19 you could a lot worse.

Like the Alaïa ones, Penneys' version come in both nude and burgundy, though we could only find an image for the burgundy ones.

They're in stores now - we saw them in Penneys on Dublin's Mary Street during the week.

While there, we also saw (and picked up) another stunning pair of nude heels that are ideal for party season.

They're super Christmassy - shiny satin, diamantés - and also €19.
