So who wouldn’t love these absolutely gorgeous nude lace peep-toe pumps by Jimmy Choo? To me they pretty much look like the perfect bridal shoes: romantic, subtle, delicate, sexy and yet not too high with their 4 inch heel and the accompanying 0.5 inch platform. Total dream shoes material, right? If only it wasn’t for the $795 price tag…

Ivanka Trump “Maggie” Lace Peep-Toe Platform Pumps

Ivanka Trump loves Jimmy Choo big time and her brand can be frequently seen copying Choo’s styles; including this one. The color on this one is a bit lighter, but the rest is pretty much spot-on. A beautfiul alternative to the pricey Choos for under $130! Wouldn’t you agree?

Fellow vegans and vegetarians unite! Stella McCartney has created an all vegan faux leather handbag to mimic the lavish style, without resorting to animals to achieve a luxurious appeal. Not only is Stella McCartney a lifelong devotee to vegetarianism, she has also an impeccable tailoring and wonderful taste to fulfill the desirable expensive, leather look. This Shaggy Deer Falabella Fold Over Clutch is bold and has a super edgy look and ultimately can be the key accessory to any outfit. As much as I would love to own any piece from her vegan collection someday, especially this one, I can’t afford to pay such a grand price. However, there is no reason to fret since we have such beautiful and affordable alternatives below!

Latico “Crawford” Clutch

There is no reason we shouldn’t indulge in the Stella McCartney style, especially when the price tag is less than 13% (sale price!) of the real deal’s sale price. This “Crawford” Clutch by Latico is certainly more affordable, yet it looks just as expensive. And though the silhouette and structure of this clutch is minimal the overall result is maximum impact. The chain embellishments are edgy but chic at the same time and for utmost versatility one can wear it with a drop-in chained strap or simply as a clutch. Additionally, this clutch comes in an array of colors such as red, taupe, metallic white and mocha leather.

Traffic People “Emily” Chain Shoulder Bag

A favorite steal of mine is this “Emily” Chain Shoulder Bag by Traffic People. It is currently on sale for £25.68, but still pertains and upholds to the appearance of the Falabella Fold Over Clutch. Here it is pictured in the black color; however, the navy blue is just as amazing! It is not only efficient in functionality, but also the best priced look-a-like alternative. For extra savings, one day shipping is free if you are located anywhere in the UK or EU. Although international shipping is available, the downside is that shipping prices become a bit steep (£20 flat fee per delivery for all non-EU countries).

Espadrilles! These summer shoes have risen to fame in the last couple of seasons with Chanel and Valentino leading the pack of the fabulous espadrilles. We’ve already done a Real vs. Steal on Valentino’s highly popular lace espadrilles from a few seasons ago and now they’ve updated their shoe collection with a just as stylish crochet version. But as gorgeous as they are, do you actually see yourself spending $675 (!) on a pair of highly delicate espadrilles? Well, I can’t.

Rebecca Minkoff “Genny” Lace Espadrille Flats

Good thing is that I don’t have to spend nearly $700 when there are Valentino-inspired espadrilles like these by Rebecca Minkoff around. And while I admit these aren’t what I’d consider a steal at $175 they are still in fact $500 cheaper than the originals. Available in black, red coral, yellow and taupe.

Tory Burch “Abbe” Crochet Espadrilles

Another great Valentino alternative are these crochet espadrilles by Tory Burch. They aren’t terribly cheaper than the Rebecca Minkoffs but in comparison to the pricey Valentinos they’re quite the good deal. Available in black and white.

And here’s another Valentino alternative which is actually my personal favorite because of the price and all the lovely colors you can buy them in. $109 at Jessica Buurman. Available in black, blush, aqua and yellow.

Oh my, oh my, oh my! I don’t have words to describe how much I’m in love with these black buckled stiletto booties by Giuseppe Zanotti. They’re so hot and the side buckles are such a sexy little detail, don’t you agree? Too bad even the sale price makes me want to cut my credit card in two.

I’m pretty sure by now you’ve all seen and and learned about Isabel Marant‘s “Carol” studded sandal since it was quite the “It” shoe among the style bloggers last year. But did you know “Carol” had a little brother named “Cole”? It’s a cute flat stud-embellished sandal, very similar looking to his big sister but with no block heel attached. I especially love the white version here. But $640? Um, thank you, but no, thank you.

Matisse “Isla” Stud Embellished Flat Sandals

If you like the Marant look, but can’t afford the original, here’s an inspired version by Matisse. The sandals don’t come in the exact same colors and have a few minor design differences, but the overall look and feel is still very Marant-ish. Get these for $89 in either black or natural leather.
