The Yves Saint Laurent Baobab Python Wedge is a statement piece on its own as it can spice up any outfit. I adore the juxtaposition of the various colors; the olive and orange among the gray python creates a frivolous pattern adding more depth and texture to the overall appearance. Also, the sculpted heel is so artistic and fascinating to look at. These would make a great addition to my closet and perfectly coincide with my love of neutral toned clothing. But as much as I love YSL, I definitely cannot afford these amazing wedge sandals for $1.995. Take a look at the wonderful steal below!

Jeffrey Campbell “For Real” Strappy Platform Sandals

Though a different color pattern, these shoes are definitely hot! With the magenta color and metallic undertone, you are destined to capture all of the attention. The sculpted heel is still very apparent just like in the YSL; the only thing that’s really missing would be the python print and a bit more straps. Other than that, the Jeffrey Campbell “FOR REAL” platforms are an identical match for $134.95. This steal is a sartorial sensation.

I must admit the first time I saw the “Palais” pumps by Yves Saint Laurent I didn’t like them very much. While I was madly in love with the vibrant blue suede, what I didn’t like was the carved heel and the exaggerated round toe. But as I previously said, sometimes you have to see a shoe on a person to truly recognize its beauty. And this was the case when I spotted the lovely Carey Mulligan wearing these iconic YSL pumps. From this moment on I was a reformed “Palais” lover.

I do love animal print, but I don’t think I’d be able to rock this giraffe-print biker jacket by 3.1 Phillip Lim with the confidence it needs to make it look good. Also, I don’t have the funds to buy a designer leather jacket. Not that I would need them because this jacket is sold out anyway.

ASOS Leather Biker With Leopard Print Pony Panel

If you can picture yourself wearing an animal print adorned biker jacket à la Miley or Jessica then this ASOS leather jacket might be a good alternative. It does have a leopard print panel instead of a giraffe print one and it’s also missing a few details, but if you can save almost $1,000 why not opting for this one instead?

Wedges. I am currently crazy about them! Especially cork wedges. They’re just the perfect pair of kicks for summer. My favorite pair is a beautiful pair I found on ASOS a year ago, but these black satin cork wedges by Giuseppe Zanotti aren’t too bad either.

Not willing to shell out hundreds of $ on a pair of summer heels? Then check out these fab Zanotti look-a-likes by GUESS by Marciano which also happen to be on sale right now. They might have a peep-toe which the original Zanottis don’t, I still find them to be quite charming. Available in black or pink suede.

Jessica Simpson attended the Us Weekly Hot Hollywood Party 2 days ago looking pretty hot in a printed Etro mini dress which she accessorized with a gold clutch and a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti’s ultra-high platform cork wedges. Shame about the messy hair though! A sleek ponytail would’ve worked so much better with Jessica’s outfit.
