Can you imagine a more beautiful pair of classic platform pumps than these by Charlotte Olympia? They are elegant, feminine, and unmistakably special. A pair like this could go with almost everything in our closets, but buying them would leave us with little left over in our wardrobe budget. Want to get a pair just like them for about 14% of the originals’ price? Check out the amazing steal below.

ZiGiny “Kerry” Satin Platform Pumps

Just as gorgeous and classic as their muse, these ZiGiny pumps are the signature shoes of a confident, stylish, and very intelligent girl, especially considering the price. Of course they are an investment, but when buying timeless pieces it’s OK to spend a little more than you would on trendier items. Just imagine how often you’d wear them, I certainly have.

With this nice weather finally streaming in, the sandal phenomenon has grown to new heights, literally. These crisscross sandals by Loeffler Randall are particularly interesting, and have been seen worn by both Leighton Meester on the set of Gossip Girl and Emma Watson. However, what I absolutely love about these sandals is that they are in pure form of versatility. Leighton sports a more preppy look than Emma who is on the complete opposite side of the spectrum with her rocker-esque ensemble. I truly love both looks, especially how well these “Paige” sandals are being worn. Though the price is beyond my budget, that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t indulge in the steal below.

Nine & Co. “Moonlite” Wedge Sandals

Although these “Moonlight” Sandals by Nine & Co. are in wedge form, they preserve the most significant aspect of the sandals above. That is of course the crisscross detailing, which is practically identical to the real deal. Plus, these are only $40 so one doesn’t feel guilty about splurging on a pair of out-of-budget designer shoes. Ultimately, you can still keep the versatile feature in addition to the comfortable wedge heel without spending too much.

I can just imagine these dainty yet vibrant suede pumps by Christian Louboutin as part of the incredibly chic wardrobe of Doris Day’s Character, Jan Morrow, in the 1959 movie, “Pillow Talk“. She would have paired them with a matching bag and a lovely camel suit and coat. But coordinating our accessories isn’t really the style anymore, and with what you’re spending on this pair, you probably need to maximize their mileage. Not all that convinced of how often you’d wear these but love them dearly? Then snatch up our very cool steal below!

Ivanka Trump “Amoro” Pumps

I already have plans to wear these statement heels by Ivanka Trump with my jeans and white oxford skirt, my navy pencil skirt and light blue blouse, and my grey cocktail dress (which is a bit more unexpected than black)! This particular color is quite transferable, seeing how well it goes with the classic neutral shades in most of our closets. But the best part is the price! This style comes in an array of different colors and finishes, so go ahead and get a neutral pair as well.

J.Crew “Mona” Suede Pumps

One of our loyal readers, Patience, has given us heads-up about another great Louboutin alternative which is available at J.Crew. The “Mona” pump is a little more expensive, but the fun colors (e.g. yellow) make more than up for it I think.

Real vs. Steal – Alejandro Ingelmo Matinee Sandals

by Velicia on September 21, 2011

This heel (almost) puts me in the mood for some groovy disco dancing, a polyester jumpsuit and a long night out on the town. Why? Bronze was so hot during the 70’s. But unfortunately, mixed with this (play it safe) nude/camel color, throws the whole thing off… as well as my mood! This is one matinee (shoe) show by Alejandro Ingelmo, I’ll pass on. I would’ve loved to have seen this beautiful bronze leather mixed with red or black and a higher heel. Nevertheless, if this suits your taste and budget it’s available for $316. I’ll definitely pass for the aforementioned reasons as well as the price. But we found a steal that I’m really digging. Ssshhh… don’t tell anyone, it’s so cute, it should’ve been the real instead of the steal.

bebe “Kendall” Metallic Leather Crisscross Sandals

Is that my mood lamp or am I just so damn happy to see this Kendall heel by bebe? Do you agree? I think it’s so much more modern and edgy with the pencil thin 5 inch heel, the nude & silver are working harmoniously and the best part? It’s only $159 and available in black, too… groovy baby!

This fall is going to be all about Burberry. Seriously. The Fall/Winter 2010 Burberry Prorsum collection was so good, it’s going to be legendary. And these Burberry Prorsum Leather Ankle Boots are likely to reach cult status right along with it. For tough-girl chic, is there anything better? A combat boot with a heel? Yeah, that’s how I’d kit out my battalion of butt-kickin’, boot-stompin’ badass babes.

Jeffrey Campbell “Boot Camp” Ankle Boots

If you’re ready to enlist in the military…trend…but Burberry is a bit out of your league, then grab these “Boot Camp” Ankle Boots from Jeffrey Campbell instead. They have the same combat-boot-with-a-kick, they’re well under two bills, and they’re available in black leather or camouflage canvas. Hoowah!
