It is my personal opinion that you have to be mentally ill if you do not like this classic staple of a bag! Yves Saint Laurent‘s Muse Large Leather Dome Satchel is a handbag that will never go out of style. This bag comes in several different colors, and I personally love it in the brown which is available through Forzieri. I also love Nicole Richie’s bright yellow version because it gives your most boring outfit a splash of color. If you don’t have the funds to splurge on this handbag we have another alternative for you!

BagInc “The Very Inspired” Leather Bag

Hence the irony in the name of this BagInc bag “The Very Inspired.” You can clearly see who they were inspired by… but, nonetheless, they did a good job with their inspired version made of real leather! Priced at $59, you can certainly have the classic look of YSL’s iconic Muse bag! Also, check out the brown color, too!

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.

Though I’m not an enthusiast of satin coated shoes, there is something unique about the Christian Louboutin “Greissimo” Knotted Satin Platform Pumps. The more I looked at some of my favorite celebrities wearing them, the more inclined I was to like them. Maybe it’s the element of the Louboutin name or rather the simplicity of the design. Even for those who find these alluring pumps very praiseworthy. On that note, we have a steal that won’t break your wallet.

Luichiny “Sure Thing” Satin Peep-toe Pumps

I really like the magenta color of these Luichiny “Sure Thing” Satin Peep-toe Pumps. Available in an array of colors, I think that these shoes will make a great addition to one’s wardrobe. There are a lot of elements to play around with, and the wide spectrum of hues makes it that much easier to incorporate a touch of color. Although these pumps are bold, I appreciate that they can also be dressed down for a more low-key look. Plus, these are priced under $50.

So you might already know about my love for all things Prada and if you’ve been following this blog for a while you’ll probably also know that I’m big, really BIG, on the leopard trend (which is still going strong these days). Hence my obsession with these leopard-printed Prada platforms shouldn’t come as a surprise to you. These heels are absolute head-turners and all what’s needed to make a monochrome outfit pop. Just look at Emmy Rossum rocking her Pradas with leather skinnies, a white blazer and a neon yellow purse. Doesn’t she look amazing? Now even if you were willing to spend a fortune on a pair of shoes, it’s too bad, but they’re long gone and all sold out.

Enzo Angiolini “Farrel” Leopard Pumps

However, this ain’t a reason to give up on a pair of fabulous leopard platforms à la Prada. Enzo Angiolini “Farrel” pumps will give you the same wild look but for a much smaller investment. Who can say no to leopard shoes at that price level? I know I can’t.
