Wasn’t there a moment in every little girl’s life where she has dreamed of being a ballerina? And with ballet flats as lovely looking as these by Chloé, isn’t there still a place in every woman’s heart for that little girl’s dream? Too bad the reality of that $485 price tag keeps most of us away from making that dream come true.

We have previously written about Casadei‘s super hot & famous “Blade” stiletto pumps, but I think the patent leather version needs a mention of its own. Now if this isn’t the ultimate “sex on a heel“-type of shoe I don’t know what is. Just look at all the celebs donning these sleek pumps; everyone looks amazing due to their footwear choices. I especially love Jenna Dewan’s fire red Blades. Too bad the patent leather version is all sold out and even if it weren’t you’d still have to shell out more than $700 to make them yours. If this isn’t your kind of shoe shopping budget (I know it ain’t mine), keep on reading to find an amazing look-a-like below.

Chinese Laundry “Maserati” Stiletto Pumps

Once again, Chinese Laundry has a “Blade” design of their own. The “Maserati” pumps which come in either red, black or nude patent leather look almost exactly like their high-end designer counterparts but cost only $150 instead of $740. Sizes are already pretty limited, however, I’m sure these are going to be restocked very soon, so keep on checking the website if your size isn’t available. I’ll also add further shops here once they stock this particular shoe style.

Where does one begin when a boot is called Miss Fast Plato? Except, you go Ms. Thang, with your bad self! Who am I to question the great Mr. Louboutin? Oh no, not I, said the girl nicknamed Ms. Heel. 😉 I don’t ever get the names he assigns to his shoes, but I do know that by wearing this simple yet sexy boot, you’ll be one badass chick. Miss Fast Plato or better yet, Miss Deep Pockets (if you got it like that) – you look marvelous!

Nine West “Gracious” Booties

Well hello there, Miss Slow-To-Open-The-Wallet! We know you love to look good on a budget; that’s why we graciously went in search of a budget-friendly, but by no means, uncompromising sexy version of the Louboutin boot. And If I may say so myself, we did pretty good. “Gracious” by Nine West is remarkably similar (minus the heel height) for only a $109. Available in black, gray and nude leather as well as red and black suede.
