Grace has very good taste. She writes: "I am so in love with the Lanvin ballet flats with ankle chain....BUT they are so expensive! Can you help me find some more affordable versions? The requirements are: under $200, must be flats and have the ankle chain." Grace, these particular flats (Soooo gorgeous!) haven't been around long enough to have an exact knockoff available (that we could find) , but we found some similar pairs below.
P.S. If you're a crafty sort, you could buy a pair of basic black leather flats, some heavy costume jewelry chains, and go to town - or, there's always the option of submitting an Etsy Alchemy request.
1 - The Original: Lanvin Noir Ballet Flat with Ankle Chain ($725)
2 - ZiGiny Women's Hot Shot Ballet Flat ($70)
3 - Zigi Soho Zealous Jeweled Flat ($40)
4 - ZiGiny Women's Aura Flat ($80)
5 - Breckelles Alice-11 Flats ($31)
6 - Steve Madden Kellii Flat ($90)
7 - Michael Antonio Women's Prescott Flats ($42-47)
