Valentino‘s shoe line from the “Rockstud” collection is probably the most popular here on this blog. And even though the Rockstud shoes have been going strong in the fashion community for a couple of years, there seems no sign of declining popularity with these pyramid studded, strappy Valentino shoes. We’ve written about quite a few shoe styles from the “Rockstud” family already and today we’re finally featuring the caged t-strap ballet flats. For a flat, this shoe is about as dressy as it gets; the luxe patent leather juxtaposed the shiny studded straps = perfection! But before you fall hopelessly in love, take a deep breath and look at the price tag: $975! And that’s the lower price limit for this type of Rockstud style. Other variations of the caged flat go as far up as $1.095! Now that’s a lot of money.

Katypeny Studded T-Strap Flats

Update (05/03/2017): Still looking for a pair of Valentino Rockstud dupes? How about these spot-on and budget-friendly look-alikes by Katypeny? They come in a bunch of colors (14!) and at $46.99 you don’t have to settle on just one color. Customer ratings average on 4/5 stars which I think is decent for a shoe under $50.

Diavolina “Delight” Studded T-Strap Flats

Luckily, there are some fantastic and affordable alternatives out there for all of us Valentino-loving fashionistas on a budget. Let’s start with my current favorite Valentino steal find which is the “Delight” by Diavolina, a spot-on Rockstud flat dupe which comes in either black or nude patent. Unfortunately, at $94.98 AUD (sale price!), it’s a pricey Valentino look-alike and also rather hard to get hold of outside of Australia, but nonetheless, it’s about 90% cheaper than the real deal, so I’d still consider this to be a great steal find if you’re willing to invest in a high-quality Valentino alternative.

I am usually not too fond of Louis Vuitton bags. I especially dislike their monogrammed range because I just don’t see the appeal of having a brand’s logos plastered all over my bag looking like a tacky advertisement. However, Sofia Coppola designed a bag for Louis Vuitton that got me obsessed! The SC bag is pure and simple elegance; I absolutely adore the minimalistic design and the no-fuss attitude it exudes. It’s such a beautiful bag in such a beautiful color! But, oh boy, is this bag expensive! $4.650? Like seriously, Louis Vuitton?

A.L.C. Small Lucas Duffel Bag

Update (05/09/2015): If you’re looking for a really high-quality LV look for less alternative, A.L.C.’s “Lucas” duffel satchel might be a good fit. The design is very similar to the SC bag and I bet the craftmanship is superb, too, but you’d have to spend $895 on this beauty. Which, however, is only about 1/5 compared to the price of the real deal, so overall it’s still a great deal.

If you think of Salvatore Ferragamo shoes, the first one to spring to mind is probably the iconic “Varacj” pump – a one-inch heeled patent ballet-style bow-adorned shoe. This shoe was first introduced in 1978 by Fiamma Ferragamo, the daughter of Salvatore, and has gained a lot of recognition among celebrities like Princess Diana for example. “Varina” is a spin-off of Vara, a more casual and modern designed ballerina flat with a lovely grosgrain bow on the vamp, which has been around since 2007. I’m usually not a fan of ballet flats, but these are so gorgeous and the quality looks absolutely superb, don’t you agree? I’d so love to own these ($550 isn’t that expensive for a pair of made in Italy designer shoes nowadays). If only I had that kind of shopping budget.

How gorgeous are these Cat-Embroidered Suede Slippers by Charlotte Olympia? They are a combination of modern design and a classic silhouette. The mini golden heel exhibits pure luxury and the cat-face embroidery adds a fun, young, and unexpected touch. Unfortunately, the price reflects all of these qualities and makes these wonderful flats merely unattainable. However, we have very similar options below for each and every budget!

Priced at £34.99 (approx. $55), they seem to be the most similar to the Charlotte Olympia version while still being affordable! Also, for an extra shipping charge they can be shipped to almost every destination!

Real vs. Steal – Valentino Rockstud Leather Clutch

by Juliana on September 18, 2016

Update: This post has been updated on September 18, 2016. Scroll down to see the new add.

Fashion magazines are consistently talking about the day clutch. While carrying all your essentials in a bag the size of a large envelope isn’t exactly feasible, how can you make a clutch work during the day? It’s easy, you just toss it in your larger work tote and then pull it out for lunch, a quick run to Starbucks, or keep it handy for an impromptu dinner after work. This particular style by Valentino is perfect. It has great proportion, construction and just enough edginess to make it less “boardroom” and more “downtown chic”. But although this particular clutch would get a lot of use, it may not be quite enough to justify the price. As always, we present you more accessible options. Check it out below!

GoJane Pyramid Stud Trim Clutch

Just as lovely, this version by GoJane is exactly the type of clutch you need for everyday and costs way less than the original designer inspiration. Place all your essentials inside and then place it in your larger tote to make it easier to pull out when you’re on the go. It will also keep everything organized and easier to spot inside your larger bag as well! Wear this clutch with everything; from your pencil skirt and blouse to your jeans on the weekend for brunch. The detachable strap is fantastic; and I’m sure you’ll find a dozen ways to wear your new bag! Want to add a little glam twist to your look? You can also get this style in peach or gold metallic faux leather.

Buffalo Stud Clutch Bag

Another great steal and also made of completely vegan leather is this cute look-a-like clutch by Buffalo. These are a bit more expensive than the previous style, but the hardware is very similar to the original. The wristlet detail is just fabulous because it helps keep your hands free when you need them most (perhaps you’re going out for cocktails or meeting friends at an after work networking event). I really like that you have the option of the taupe color as well because it’s perfect if you wear a lot of brown or prefer a lighter palette for your key wardrobe pieces.
