I’m such a fan of Saint Laurent‘s classic shoe line, but why does it have to be so darn expensive? Spending $685 on a pair of simple black pumps? Not in my budget, unfortunately.

Steven by Steve Madden “BLADEE” Pointed-Toe Pumps

Luckily, we have Steve Madden keeping an eye out for the hottest designer shoe trends. These Steven by Steve Madden pointed-toe pumps are a fab alternative if you’re looking for a budget-friendly version of the Saint Laurent Thorn heels above. The only noticeable difference? Madden’s heels have a zipper in the back.

So let me be honest with you. At first, I kind of hated Christian Louboutin‘s Daffodile pumps. They looked too stripperish, too high, just totally OTT. However, the more I saw these extreme platform pumps being flaunted by celebs on and off the red carpet the more I started to like them. Not sure what changed my mind about these… maybe the extra few inches gained by wearing these sky-high beauties? I’m not sure, but I do know that I certainly don’t like the $995 price tag attached to these designer heels.

Back in April, we received a reader request from Anais asking us to find a look-4-less option for these gorgeous side-buckle booties by Giuseppe Zanotti from the SS2013 collection. At this time there weren’t any look-a-likes of these Zanotti ankle boots available, so I told Anais to wait a few months because I was sure that eventually I would find something suitable for her. I kept her email in my “open requests”-folder and yesterday was the day I could finally check off Anais’ request because I managed to find 2 great look for less alternatives. Woohoo! I hope you like my steal finds, dear Anais!

Thigh-high boots are dangerous territory because they can easily look…well, wrong. Think cheap-y and stripperish! But let us not judge too hasty here because over-the-knee boots can also look super hot and fabulous. Case in point? These Christian Louboutin OTK boots. The black suede tones down the Pretty Woman resemblance factor by quite a bit while the lacing detail gives them a vintage Victorian feel. These are thigh-high boots done right, but oh, $1.995 for a pair? I think I’ll have to pass this time!

I am absolutely obsessed with these patent leather Christian Louboutin platform pumps. They are so gorgeous! I love everything about them – the shiny patent leather, the pitch black color, the mega high platform and the resulting height enhancement. PERFECTION! I sure am not the only one who fell for these lustworthy pumps as these heels sold like hot cakes when they hit the shelves a few months ago.

If you are willing to spend some cash to get a similar style, these patent platform pumps by Joan & David are a great alternative if you can’t afford the real deal. The platform is not as high as on the original, but overall they still look very similar. If you prefer a different color, the pumps are also available in various other colors & finishes.

BCBGeneration “Tinas” Platform Pumps

If your shopping budget does not allow for a pricey shoe splurge, you might want to try these Louboutin inspired platform pumps by BCBGeneration instead. They cost $60 only which makes them 2/3 cheaper than the above mentioned knockoff and you’ll save more than $700 compared to the real Louboutin pumps. It’s not a perfect match and the platform is even more watered down than on the first pair, but overall they are still a great option if you are lusting for the Louboutin look 4 less.
