An original Rick Owens classic leather jacket is one of the few designer items I would gladly splurge on if I had 2.5k to spare. I especially love this sleek biker jacket below with its elegantly draped collar and ribbed wool sleeves; the shape is timeless and flattering and the leather looks incredibly soft, doesn’t it? A cool and edgy leather jacket like this one is a closet staple and should be hanging in every woman’s wardrobe.

Trouvé Leather Moto Jacket

UPDATE (08/26/2014): Came across this lovely moto jacket by Trouvé today which instantly reminded me of the Rick Owens biker jacket above. Not exactly a steal at $298, but still a whole lot cheaper than the real deal.

MANGO Maxi Flap Leather Jacket

UPDATE (01/31/2014): So how fab is this leather jacket by MANGO? It’s such a close dupe to the Rick Owens version and is also surprisingly affordable at $289.99 (we’re talking real leather here!). Really thinking about getting this beauty of a leather jacket myself.

BB Dakota “Grant” Leather Jacket

UPDATE (11/02/2013): This leather jacket by BB Dakota also reminded me of the Rick Owens biker jacket above. It’s not exactly budget-friendly at $227.50, but definitely a steal compared to the originals’ price!

Muubaa “Agena” Leather Jacket

UPDATE (06/20/2013): Just discovered that these leather jackets by Muubaa would be great buys if you’re looking for a more affordable Rick Owens alternative. They’re not exactly a steal at £279-£349, but from what I have read about the brand worth the mini investment. And oooh, did I mention they offer free worldwide shipping?

Jennifer Lopez Faux-Leather Motorcycle Jacket

This faux leather jacket by Jennifer Lopez surely can’t compete with an original Rick Owens jacket, but if you’re looking for a good-looking and affordable leather jacket, this one has obviously quite a few Rick Owens inspired elements and the price of $50.40 ain’t too bad as well! Also available in white and plus sizes.

I have a feeling this summer will be the summer of the espadrille. First we had Valentino’s lace espadrilles and Chanel’s iconic cap-toe espadrille flats and Céline have created their own version in form of this pony hair espadrille slipper which also comes in gorgeous leopard print and royal blue (my fave!). I couldn’t find a retail price for these, but I’m sure they’re totally out of my budget.

Steven by Steve Madden “LANII” Calf Hair Espadrilles

But imagine my happiness when I first spied this calf hair espadrille from Steven by Steve Madden. A pretty perfect Céline dupe if I may say so. And at $69.30/pair (sale price!), I might even be tempted to buy them in two colors. Available in black, blue, pink, grey, leopard and zebra.

I’ve been really loving Prada shoes as of late. Their footwear range for Spring and Fall 2009 was truly exceptional and just when I was starting to understand the appeal of Prada I was beyond disappointed to see lucite shoes return from fashion hell onto Prada’s Spring 2010 runway. Damn you, Miuccia Prada! I’m on a fashion rollercoaster with your fashion house. I do appreciate these studded t-strap sandals however also known as Ashley Olsen‘s studded obsession.

Fergie “Jilted” Studded T-Strap Sandals

UPDATE (09/30/2011): Found another Prada alternative by Fergie though their version has a few noticeable differences to make the copycat job less obvious. Available in black or tan leather.

XOXO “Lola” T-Strap Sandals

UPDATE (04/04/2010): Stumbled upon another Prada knockoff by XOXO. The hardware is silver instead of gold and it’s missing a few details, but overall it’s a great steal version. Available in black, black patent, grey and natural.

So excited about this! Remember Balenciaga‘s Fall 2006 harness ankle boots with the mega platform? A lot of people thought they were the ugliest shoes on the planet, but then Mary-Kate Olsen came along, fell in love with these boots and wore them like a million times. And suddenly people were all over these boots. Of course, not everyone could afford the real Balenciagas and hence had to wait for an affordable knockoff version.

Sam Edelman “Zoe” Ankle Boots

The knockoffs were brought to us by Sam Edelman and became such a big hit that they sold out in a rush. Even Rumi of fame fell in love with these Balenciaga look-a-likes. More than 2 years later, Sam Edelman has chosen to reintroduce the coveted ankle boots for his Fall 2009 line due to the popular demand. Unfortunately, they raised the price as well. If you missed out on these the first time, this is your chance now, but be fast and order quickly, these boots go like hot cakes!

DISCLAIMER: I may be a little biased in writing this post. Why? Because I LOVE Fendi! My obsession began back in the day when I was modeling and I’m still feigning after everything Karl Lagerfeld and the Fendi sisters design. My first passion was for their delicious baguette bags (I have 6), now it’s their shoes. Especially this Jardin pump. If my French serves me correctly, jardin translates to garden in English and that’s how I’d feel if I had these – in a virtual Garden of Eden!

Anne Michelle Essence-35 Platform Pumps

This inspired version by Anne Michelle is really a great buy. But you won’t get the deep grey color nor the double platform. Consolation prize – you get to save A LOT of money!

Nine West “Expoze” Pumps

Nine West will “expoze” you to this great pump as well – just at a higher price. But their version is of a darker grey with an extra purple stripe. And yet, still missing that key design element of the double platform. Personally, I wish someone had chosen to do this in the burgundy suede (so much hotter). But I guess if you wanna go cheap, you can’t be choosy!
