Finally! I’ve gotta tell you guys, I have been anxiously awaiting the “knock-off” version of the Alexander Wang Alla wedges for months now and judging from the amount of emails we’ve received on this shoe, I’m not the only one. These super cute wedges are not only super pricey but also super sold out. I initially saw them on Khloe Kardashian (the leopard version) and it was love at first sight. Since then I’ve been both stalking them on eBay (totally fruitless) and looking for “steal” versions (also completely pointless)…

Joan & David “Opal” Wedge Booties

Well our patience seems to have paid off. Joan & David‘s “Opal” Wedge Booties are not the cheapest steal we’ve ever featured, but gosh, they’re good, aren’t they? In all the most important ways, these booties are an awesome knockoff of the Allas. Beautiful shape, rich color, peep-toe… half the price… now all we need is a leopard version. For now though, I’ll take the black leather or black suede.

Wow, when did I stop hating leopard print? Because, to be honest, I used to loathe it and the only associations I had with it were aging divas being clad in head-to-toe leopard or cheesy leopard print bedding coming straight out some vintage 70s porno. But this year Alexander Wang worked his magic on me. He created the “Alla” leopard wedge and what used to be hate changed into love and adoration.

UPDATE (07/25/2015): When I saw these animal print wedge mules by Renvy, they instantly reminded me of the Alexander Wang Alla leopard wedges above. These are currently on sale for $55 and come also in black, nude, white leather as well as black suede.

Nina “Yaneli” Leopard Wedges

Now $650 is not my typical shoe shopping budget, so I had to wait for someone to come along with a cheaper alternative. And finally, Nina heard my prayers. Well, not only mine but apparently also yours because the Alla leopard wedge was undoubtedly the most requested shoe on InTheirCloset. So here you go, girls! A wonderful Wang-inspired leopard wedge bootie. Now, run, don’t walk, some sizes are already sold out.

Last year it was the Rocco bag that made its way around Tinseltown and with one very good reason: it’s AMAZING! The shape was reminiscent of an 80s duffel bag that got a makeover at the fabulous factory and the stud detail made it a great choice for day or night. Though the Alexander Wang Donna bag got less attention, it certainly didn’t lack in the celebrity love department. The bag’s differences made them like distant cousins or perhaps fraternal twins. The Donna is slouchy, only suited for day wear and like its name explains, a hobo bag. But, it is still – oh so perfect!

Urban Expressions Slater Knotted Messenger

If the price tag is just a little too much for you to get your Wang on, then this Urban Expressions messenger bag is your next best bet. Both versions share the same shape, silver hardware, a center zipper, knotted shoulder and front camera-style pockets. If you buy it, we might just be twins, but the identical kind.

I love (almost) everything coming from Alexander Wang, but shelling out $750 for a bag is neither reasonable to me nor anywhere in my budget (I’m also more of a shoes girl).

You know how I know we’re good? Because we never forget a shoe. Or a handbag. Or a face. OK, so not the last one. Back in the old days (you know, 2005) the fashion world saw the introduction to the “It Bag” – a bag that became every starlet’s must have accessory. One day, readers (stay with me), Mary Kate Olsen was spotted carrying a gorgeous black, studded bag that no one could identify but that everyone immediately wanted. A year later the bag (eventually attributed to the talented, Alexander Wang) was made available to the public. It was then known as “Coco”; it is now known as “Rocco”; I can afford neither one.

Melrose Glam “Alexa” Studded Leather Bag

UPDATE (04/26/2011): I just stumbled upon this fantastic and virtually identical Rocco look-a-like by Melrose Glam which is available at BagInc. Love it! It’s a little pricey, but a) it’s made of real leather and b) they offer free worldwide shipping on all orders of $99+. Plus, you can get 10% OFF your entire order with our exclusive coupon code “INTHEIRCLOSET“. Yup, that’s how much we love you! ūüėČ – P.S.: I now own this bag and it is AH-MAZ-ING (review here…)!

Wet Seal Stud Bottom Satchel

I have to be honest, the last time I shopped at Wet Seal I was looking for something to wear to the school dance (in other words, it was 1998), but by golly perhaps Wet Seal deserves another look! Their Stud Bottom Satchel is a pretty darn great dupe of the Alexander Wang bag. True, it’s not made out of leather, but I know there are vegans among us who actually prefer that. For a mere $24.50 this is a hot bag to add to your arsenal.
