admittedly, it was difficult to find an appropriate replacement at a lower price point — them’s the breaks when it comes to luxury design — but i was able to gather a handful of styles featuring similar front flap and dual handle features.
i’m inclined to say “no” but since i do not work in product development, i cannot fully assist you with this question. please reach out to nars’ customer care department as they are far more well-versed than i am regarding the ingredients in our products.
i don’t have many feelings but since they’ve been around for what seems like forever, they’ve become a classic for those seeking comfortable footwear and more clog styles have been coming out including mary jane-like heels and booties, which i quite enjoy.
living on long island, i was able to commute to queens college’s school of library and information studies. my choice to enroll in grad school was a spur-of-the-moment one as major life changes tend to be; i crammed the application process into two weeks so there wasn’t much time to think/research/move if there was even an option. luckily, i loved it and wouldn’t have altered the plan if i had the option to do it over again.
i wanted to point you in the direction of narscosmetics.com where the collection is also sold but, alas, ‘dominique’ is also unavailable there. with that in mind, i would recommend you call a nars boutique or individual barneys location to inquire about stock; if it is still sold out, ask when it’ll be replenished and put yourself on a wait list.
