So who’s up for some new Christian Louboutin goodness today? Because we have a super pretty Louboutin heel we really want to show you. “Toerless Muse” is a gorgeous pointed-toe stiletto pump enclosed by delicate horizontal and vertical straps giving the shoe a very refined, sexy caged look. The bold design obviously needs space to fully unfold its cage effect, so these beauties should be best worn with a dress that shows some leg (see Olivia Palermo and Kendall Jenner for reference). Unfortunately, these Louboutins are pretty much sold out everywhere and even if you had the luck to find them somewhere, most of us would probably have a hard time justifying spending $900 on a pair of shoes.

Sam Edelman “Hayes” Suede T-Strap Pumps

Update (09/11/2016): Spotted these caged T-Strap suede pumps by Sam Edelman and they instantly reminded me of the Louboutins above. Available in black, beige or wine red for $130.

Kendall + Kylie “Alisha” Tiered Ankle Strap Pumps

Well, well, now look who took some (or more like a lot) inspiration from their overflowing designer shoe closets for their own shoe collection? The Jenner sisters! “Alisha” by Kendall + Kylie is quite the Louboutin twin, don’t you think? The only noticeable difference between both is that the t-strap on the K + K version is shortened. Otherwise, they’re pretty much identical. “Alisha” is available in either black or taupe leather for under $50 (sale price!).

Aldo “Dradodia” Strappy Pointed-Toe Pumps

However, if you want the full t-strap game from ankle to toe, Aldo has got you covered. Their “Dradodia” caged stiletto pump is a dead-ringer for the Toerless Muse Louboutins except Aldo’s version has a slightly different strap arrangement. $60 (sale price!) and these Louboutin look-alike beauties are all yours.

Whatever you want to call this piece of clothing – a blanket, a jacket, a cape or a poncho, there’s no denying that Burberry Prorsum’s check wool and cashmere cape from the Fall 2014 show has been declared the latest must-have item for fall and winter. The popularity of this new cape trend is mostly owed to stylish celebs and It girls like Olivia Palermo, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Sarah Jessica Parker who have all been spotted being cosily wrapped in their monogrammed Burberry blanket capes out and about to fight off the chilly weather. If you love the blanket cape trend, but can’t casually drop $1,395 (not that you could anyway since the Burberry cape is already sold out everywhere), keep on reading to find a few budget-frienldy alternatives.

I wouldn’t resist a bright blue heel even if I could (which I couldn’t, by the way, because I’m too much of a fangirl for anything cobalt blue). And especially not if this bright blue heel is one by Jimmy Choo. So naturally, I was instantly obsessed with Choo’s “Gladys” heel – a beautiful suede lace-up high heel sandal in a striking electric blue hue! The only thing I couldn’t get myself to like though? Yup, you guessed it – the price of $995!

Madden Girl “Raceyyy” Lace-Up Sandals

My personal Jimmy Choo Gladys dupe favorite would have to be these lace-up heels by Madden Girl. The blue is almost as vibrant as on the real deal and the (sale) price of $29.98 ain’t too bad either! Available in various colors such as blue, black, blush, coral and others.

Chloé has created quite a few “It“-bags in the last 10 years, but it’s been rather quiet on their bag front lately. Well, that’s not entirely sure because there’s one bag that is currently making the rounds and getting a lot of hype and exposure – the “Alice” tote, a large two-tone bag that has the shape of a classic doctor’s bag. I’m usually not a big fan of colorblocking on bags, but this one I find very pretty. I really like its classic elegance and clean lines and the gold hardware gives this bag that extra oomph. But this beauty comes at a price. At $2.195, to be exact.

Would you have thought that a dress existed that has been both worn by Olivia Palermo and Kim Kardashian? I didn’t since it’s hard to believe that these socialites who have such different personal styles would find the very same dress red-carpet wearable. But Preen somehow managed to meet both the tastes of Kim and Olivia. Crazy, right? I really like how the romantic lace details balance out the super sexy silhouette of the semi-sheer mini dress. But, ugh, what a price tag! Also, this dress is from the S/S 2010 collection, so it’s not available anymore.
