Manolo Blahnik Luccado D'Orsay Pumps

I wrote about my longing for the Sedaraby pumps here.

But I couldn't find them anywhere. Not even on ebay. :(

The Luccado pumps, however, are available.

Difference between the two - Sedaraby comes with oval buckle; Luccado's got square ones.

Can't decide? Well, I guess it very much depends on the cut of diamond(s) of the engagement ring ey?


Edit: Apparently the Sedaraby's can be custom ordered from Manolo Blahnik. Life's hopeful again. :D

Mischique: The pair in my previous post is the pair featured in Sex and the City. This is a very similiar pair, with square buckles instead of the oval ones. :)
