Chanel

Update: This post has been updated on February 23, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

I must say: Hats off to Chanel for being able to reinvent the classic ol’ granny shoe and reliven the outdated shoe while casually turning a blast from the past into a massive and worldwide shoe hype that is now gracing the feet of fashion lovers, editors and pretty much every fashion influencer under the sun. I really can’t remember how often I’ve seen Chanel’s infamous two-tone cap-toe slingbacks (or their look-alikes, respectively) lately. They are everywhere; in magazines, on blogs, social media, the streets and on the red carpet. There’s no escaping the Chanel granny shoe and I really don’t mind. While sceptical at first, I definitely have warmed up to the trend now and am loving the enormous influx of grandma inspired cap-toe shoes we’re currently seeing popping up everywhere. And while I do love the laissez-faire style of the highly popular slingback version, for Fall, I do prefer a shoe with a closed back, so these block heel pumps below would be a perfect addition to my Fall wardrobe. But whom are we kidding? This is Chanel we’re talking about and even though I don’t know what the retail price is on these beauties here, I’m quite certain my shopping budget isn’t nowhere near as opulent as it would have to be in order for me to be able to afford the real deal.

Ivanka Trump “Lindi” Two-Tone Block Heel Pumps

Deal: Use promo code “SALE” to get 20% off regular and sale items and 25% off clearance items at Lord & Taylor! Offer valid through February 27th at 11:59 PM EST.

After having so much success with their Chanel slingback dupe “Liah”, I guess Ivanka Trump decided they weren’t quite done with riding that Chanel granny shoe trend train yet and so they came out with “Lindi”, a very Chanel-esque cap-toe pump which is basically the identical sister of “Liah” but in a non-slingback version. “Lindi” comes in either beige/black leather or suede and is also available in other colors such as burgundy, black and navy (suede). Like “Liah”, “Lindi” retails for $124.95 (now on sale for $93.75); which seems like a reasonable price for such a spot-on Chanel dupe made of genuine leather. Don’t wait too long with your purchase though as I’m pretty sure these will be similarly popular as Trump’s “Liah” slingbacks, so make your order before your size goes out of stock and while you’re at it, make sure to check out “Jocelynamazon” as well, it’s the ballerina flat version of “Liah” and “Lindi”.

I usually don’t deem flip flops dressy or fashionable, but as so often Chanel once again proves me wrong. How lovely do these PVC thong sandals look? I really like the classic color combo of black and ivory here and also the Camellia flower embellishment – Coco Chanel’s signature flower – which is such a nice way to dress up a pair of plain ole’ flip flops, don’t you agree? And how cute does the CC logo link look? Such a sweet little detail to add! I’m not sure how much these flip flops retail for, but I think it’s something around $550-$600. For a pair of PVC shoes! Yeah. Chanel ain’t for penny pinchers, people!

Target Jelly Flower Flip Flops

Obviously, most of us can’t or won’t spend that kind of money on a pair of jelly shoes, but how about $13? Well, that’s more like it, right? Check out these thong sandals by Target which look very similar to Chanel’s Camellia flip flops. Of course, they are missing Chanel’s superb quality (and the cute gold CC-logo), but for $12.99 they’re a fab alternative to the pricey Chanel version.

Leave it to Chanel to make us crave those #grannyshoes we all deemed ugly when we were teenagers. And if it weren’t for Chanel and the iconic CC-logo on the side of the heel, I doubt these would have been quite as popular as they are right now, but even though I know the greater part of the allure of these shoes can be traced back to just being by Chanel, I somehow still understand why so many bloggers and fashion insiders are so in love with these. The two-tone cap-toe, the mid-height block heel, the convenient slingback; it’s the perfect example of 50s retro chic and an absolute timeless classic. By pairing these shoes with modern pieces such as ripped skinny jeans or a cool biker jacket, you will keep yourself from looking like an actual granny in these. And while I don’t know what the exact retail price is for these, we’re talking about Chanel here after all, so I think it’s safe to say that they’re expensive. And apparently very hard to get ahold of these days.

Chanel espadrilles, round 3. This time we’re showing you the leather version (see the mesh and canvas version here). The top color combination is my personal favorite! Perfect shoes for summer, don’t you agree? I’ve said it before: despite the hype surrounding these shoes I still really like these cute espadrilles, but there’s no way I would spend so much money on a pair of espadrilles even though I can imagine that the leather version is the most durable of all the three variations. But still, $550? Um, no, thank you.
