Signore Giuseppe Zanotti, te amo! Or, to be a bit more specific: I love your shoes! Especially those extreme platform wedges from your S/S 2011 collection. We’ve already shown you the peep-toe version of this wedge and today we’re going to show you a great Zanotti alternative for the equally gorgeous closed toe version.

Sam Edelman “Quinn” Wedge Pumps

UPDATE (09/09/2011): Squeal! I just stumbled upon the perfect Zanotti look-a-like by Sam Edelman. The heel height on these here is somewhat lower, but I actually prefer them that way because it makes the shoes more wearable and less dangerous imo. Available in red or black suede.

Dollhouse “Brik” Wedge Platform Pumps

UPDATE (09/09/2011): If you’re looking for a cheap Zanotti alternative in red, check out these faux suede wedge pumps by Dollhouse. They’re $35 only & come in black patent as well black and red suede!

Wild Pair “Lola WP” Wedge Pumps

So, how great are these Zanottis on a budget by Wild Pair? Quite spot-on I’d say, even though I would love them more if they had kept the suede platform. But at $95 I’ll just keep my mouth shut and put them into my cart ASAP (sizes are already starting to sell out, so you better hurry to make your order). Available in red or black suede.

“Spring Breakers” star Vanessa Hudgens made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in late March looking stunning in a yellow beaded pencil dress by Alice + Olivia. The actress completed her outfit with gold Jerome C. Rousseau high heels and matching gold jewelry. I just love this bright fitted dress on Vanessa! It really suits her caramel skin tone, don’t you agree? Yellow is such a great color for Vanessa, she definitely should wear it more often!

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.

Promise “Lego” Platform Pumps

Now I can love YSL shoes as much as I want, I still don’t have the $$$ to splurge on them. So what’s the next best thing? These YSL look-a-likes by Promise, of course. Sure, they’re not as delicate as the originals and lack a few details, but they’ll definitely give you the YSL look and all for under $50. Available in blue, black and pink faux suede.

Aaaahh, Mary Janes – the perfect pick-me-up. Now thanks to Yves Saint Laurent‘s Tribute 105 Mary Jane Pumps I’m riding a great high with the perfect throw on with anything-pump! But unfortunately, my high doesn’t last very long. For these babies are sold out! But have no fear, my dear, we’ve stumbled upon a great look-a-like to satisfy your craving for Mary Janes.

Vince Camuto “Marken” Mary Jane Platform Pumps

Dear Vince Camuto, thanks for making these “Marken” pumps! Nothing like the real thing, but by fabricating these in black or beige patent leather I can wear these anytime of the year. By the way, the $89.99 price tag makes this girl very happy.

You had me at “Balenciaga.” Really. No need to add “Giant City Bag,” but since they did, oh… swoon. I’ve loved this species of Balenciaga bag for years, but the supersized, gold-studded version is to. die. for. Except for the killer price tag, natch.

BagInc “The Grand City” Medium Leather Bag

Handbag Heaven Broad Ripple Satchel

So I totally dig Balenciaga’s Giant City Bag, but I’m not about to fork over nearly $2K for it. Lucky for me (and you) there are several high-style, low-cost alternatives, starting with this version from Handbag Heaven. And need we remind you that there’s a little special going on at Handbag Heaven? Even better. Available in black, bronze, pewter, brown, white, purple & red (phew!).

Baghaus Forever A Squared Handbag

Of the three Balenciaga Giant City Bag look-alikes we’ve featured, the Baghaus versions are my favorites. The Forever A Squared Handbag is synthetic, but the crinkly look makes it totally believable. If you’re anti-leather, it’s a wonderful (and chic) alternative.

Baghaus Tara Patrick Tote

Also a strong contender for best (almost) Giant City Bag is the Baghaus Tara Patrick Tote. It’s just like the Forever A Squared Handbag above, except that it is a couple inches larger and has silver hardware instead of gold. Both Tara Patrick and Forever A are also available in other colors.
