It’s no wonder why all the celebs are donning this Victoria Beckham Stretch-Crepe Dress. After winning Designer Brand of the Year in 2011 during the British Fashion Awards, Victoria Beckham has not only been praised by her designer counterparts but also with the support of many fellow celebrities. Her clothing designs have been iconic and this dress proves that sentiment. In fact, this particular dress has been so popular, that it was not only priced at $2.750 but is already sold out! The unique design and color contrast is simple yet so elegant and girly. For an affordable take on this dress, take a look at the steal below!

Choies Zip Back Body-Con Dress

UPDATE (07/28/2015): Didn’t expect to find a new dupe for this Victoria Beckham dress, but when I browsed Choies today, this lovely frock suddenly popped up.

McBerry Strappy Dress

With the minor differences between this McBerry and the Victoria Beckham dress, it is safe to say that this is a great steal. The only aspect really missing is the zipper appliqué going down the back of the dress. Otherwise, the colors are amazingly accurate as well as the length and silhouette. Plus, this dress doesn’t require a major investment as it’s priced at £79! With a delivery charge it can shipped anywhere in the world, that is, with an extra shipping fee depending upon which country you select.

Why is it that so many people imagine themselves to be Cleopatra reincarnated? I’m thinking it’s because of the stylish clothes, hip make-up and the unmatched beauty and brains, of course. So for all you modern day, wanna be Roman-Egyptian empresses, these lovely gold sandals by Jimmy Choo clearly capture the mood of 50 B.C. perfectly! And for $850, they’ll give your wallet something to “chew” on. Well… more like taking a huge bite out of your wallet – ouch!

I always say that the awesomeness of an article of clothing can be judged by how many talented stylists pull it for their clients to wear. If we go by my thought then the Dolce & Gabbana corset dress is something everyone should run out and buy. Was. Was something we should’ve bought. If you weren’t lucky enough to snag one last spring, it is unfortunately sold out, but read on…

bebe Hook & Eye Detail Dress

Update (05/26/2015): When I spotted this beautiful strapless pencil dress by bebe I instantly thought of the Dolce & Gabbana corset dress above and thought it would serve as a nice look 4 less alternative. Also available in petite sizes.

Guess by Marciano Carmella Corset Dress

For those of you that are subscribing to my above style tip, or perhaps you just love the dress, Guess by Marciano has created their own version of it. The Carmella dress is slightly more form-fitting, but still features the decorative vertical seams. This detailing is supposed to mimic boning and is extremely figure flattering. Carmella is a ton more affordable and conveniently available now in either white or gold.

When I first saw the “Bellantomod” Lace-Up Back Open-Toe Booties by Manolo Blahnik, I couldn’t really believe that these are supposed to be Manolos because the designer usually goes for a more elegant and timeless style direction. This high heel though screamed Tom Ford or Gucci to me. It’s a very sexy and stylish shoe; I love the lacing detail in the open back of this so-called “shootie”. As you can see from the pictures below, Vicky B. is also a fan. And who can blame her? However, not everyone of us has VB’s shopping budget, so we came up with a list of possible Manolo alternatives for you.

bebe “Matison” Lace-Up Mule Heels

Et voilà, bebe to the rescue! Being a pretty much spot-on dupe of the Manolos, the “Matison” is just as sexy as the real deal and with a price tag of $139, you won’t have to break the bank in order to afford it. But you better be fast because some sizes are beginning to sell out already.

Chinese Laundry “Jinxy” High Heel Booties

Another budget-friendly alternative and currently on sale, too, are these stylish heels from Chinese Laundry. They’re not a 1:1 dupe or anything, but they’ll still give you the same sexy look. Make sure to check out the insanely gorgeous cobalt blue suede version which is my absolute favorite!

Real vs. Steal – YSL Tribtoo Pumps

by Irina on April 18, 2015

Update: This post has been updated on April 18, 2015. Scroll down to see the new add.

Every once in a while there comes a shoe that will stand out from the masses, a shoe that first becomes a trend and later will be considered iconic (think Audrey Hepburn’s Givenchy LBD from Breakfast at Tiffany’s). The YSL Tribtoo / Trib Two / Tribute Two Pump has great potential to become a shoe legend. The highly coveted 5″ inch stiletto pumps are virtually sold out EVERYWHERE and their hefty price tag prevents them from being a realistic shoe dream for most of us not-rich-by-default fashionistas.

Celebrities Love Yves Saint Laurent

The YSL Tribtoo Pumps have been worn by like at least 2 dozen celebrities, from A-Listers to D-Listers. Almost anyone who’s rich and famous owns a pair. Heidi Klum, Victoria Beckham, Lucy Liu, Christina Aguilera, etc. The YSL Tribtoo Pump was probably the most worn shoe on the red carpet last year and there’s no end in sight for 2009.

Pour La Victoire “Zimmer” Platform Pumps

Update (05/30/2012): After quite a while Pour La Victoire decided to release a new great YSL Tribtoo alternative called the “Zimmer” pump which I sadly love a bit more than my namesake, the PLV “Irina” pump.

Update (10/15/2010): Well, well. Look at this. Kelsi Dagger is the lower-priced line of Pour La Victoire and doesn’t their “Linzy” pump look JUST like the PLV Irina? Only it costs half the price. I’ve been a great fan of the “Irina” pumps (obviously!), but the Kelsi Dagger Linzy is just as nice. And there are so many colors to choose from. Which one is your favorite? Personally, I want them ALL!

Wet Seal Round Toe Platform Pumps

Update (01/12/2010): Found another YSL Tribtoo alternative by Wet Seal.

When I checked out the new arrivals on Wet Seal today I jumped out of my seat. They’ve added a pair of platform pumps that are so close to the YSL Tribtoos and cost only $24.50?! This must be DEAL OF THE MONTH or so. The pumps are currently available in black and pink and if I were you I’d snag both colors NOW because these heels will go fast.

bebe “Liza” Leather Platform Pumps

Feast your eyes on these YSL knockoff darlings: bebe‘s Liza Leather Platform Pumps. This is probably the closest you’ll ever come to the real deal with a $149 budget. Huge knockoff crush potential! They are currently available in either black leather or patent tortoise shell, but on the website they are also pictured in off white, so I guess you’ll be able to order these in that color soon, too.
