Christian Louboutin

I feel like it’s been ages since we last featured Christian Louboutin here on this blog, so let’s talk Louboutins for a minute here and let me introduce you to “Ottaka”, a beautiful open-toed 5 inch stiletto high heel bootie sandal with a dramatic tassel detail in the front that is made of luxurious suede. “Ottaka” comes in various lovely colors, but my personal favorite is the bright orange suede as it makes for a gorgeous statement-making shoe that will make any bland outfit stand out in an instant. And now that we’ve established how beautiful “Ottaka” is, we also need to talk about its price tag which is not for the faint of heart. The retail price is $1.345, but since this shoe is from a past collection, it’s rather hard to find it anywhere online now.

Vince Camuto “Abigalla” Tassel-Detailed Suede Booties

So you can’t spend one grand on a pair shoes? Gotcha! How about these Louboutin dupes by Vince Camuto instead? They’re not quite as high as the original and unfortunately not available in the same gorgeous orange suede, but they are still super close to the real deal and currently on sale for less than $80 at Nordstrom! Now is this a great steal deal or what?

So who’s up for some new Christian Louboutin goodness today? Because we have a super pretty Louboutin heel we really want to show you. “Toerless Muse” is a gorgeous pointed-toe stiletto pump enclosed by delicate horizontal and vertical straps giving the shoe a very refined, sexy caged look. The bold design obviously needs space to fully unfold its cage effect, so these beauties should be best worn with a dress that shows some leg (see Olivia Palermo and Kendall Jenner for reference). Unfortunately, these Louboutins are pretty much sold out everywhere and even if you had the luck to find them somewhere, most of us would probably have a hard time justifying spending $900 on a pair of shoes.

Sam Edelman “Hayes” Suede T-Strap Pumps

Update (09/11/2016): Spotted these caged T-Strap suede pumps by Sam Edelman and they instantly reminded me of the Louboutins above. Available in black, beige or wine red for $130.

Kendall + Kylie “Alisha” Tiered Ankle Strap Pumps

Well, well, now look who took some (or more like a lot) inspiration from their overflowing designer shoe closets for their own shoe collection? The Jenner sisters! “Alisha” by Kendall + Kylie is quite the Louboutin twin, don’t you think? The only noticeable difference between both is that the t-strap on the K + K version is shortened. Otherwise, they’re pretty much identical. “Alisha” is available in either black or taupe leather for under $50 (sale price!).

Aldo “Dradodia” Strappy Pointed-Toe Pumps

However, if you want the full t-strap game from ankle to toe, Aldo has got you covered. Their “Dradodia” caged stiletto pump is a dead-ringer for the Toerless Muse Louboutins except Aldo’s version has a slightly different strap arrangement. $60 (sale price!) and these Louboutin look-alike beauties are all yours.

Breckelle’s Lydia-21 T-Strap Pointed-Toe Pumps

If you want to score a real bargain, check out these faux suede heels by Breckelle’s which are spot-on Loubie dupes. I love the red version (Olivia Palermo chic on a budget!) and did I mention these are on sale for $22.99? Steal deal alert, people!

I’m one of those people who-when traveling through airports-will always wear heels (you never know if Mr. Right is flying the friendly skies as well). I can’t always do a 5 inch towering platform though; that’s why this leopard wedge by Mr. Christian Louboutin is perfect for such occasions! Some style and height to go along with a comfy and simple yet sexy outfit. My travel companion? A stiff drink and pretzels instead of peanuts, please. No thank you, Miss, I’d wear my “Peanuts”, not eat them. 😉

Kate Spade New York “Amory” Round Toe Wedge Pumps

Update (05/15/2016): Just spotted another Christian Louboutin Peanut alternative! This calf hair animal print wedge by Kate Spade is surely not a steal at $350, but it is still $495 (!) cheaper than the real deal, so I had to add them to the list.

Talbots “Porsha” Leopard Haircalf Wedges

Update (08/27/2015): Didn’t really expect to find another Louboutin Peanut dupe after such a long time, but doesn’t “Porsha” by Talbots look strangely familiar to you?

Ivanka Trump Linear3 Leopard Wedge Pumps

The designers at Ivanka Trump have virtually copied the Loubutin “Peanut” down to its shell! I must admit I do like the leopard print better on this one and I’m completely nutty about the $150 price tag.

Now if this back-bow d’Orsay pump by everyone’s favorite French shoe designer, Monsieur Christian Louboutin, isn’t absolute shoe perfection, I don’t know what is! I mean, just look at it! Perfectly-shaped arch, a nice, subtle platform with a luscious red sole, an almost 5″ stiletto heel and the loveliest tied bow on the back. In a word, the perfect symbiosis of girly and grown-up.

Kate Spade New York “Izzie” Back-Bow d’Orsay Pumps

Update (05/12/2016): Kate Spade New York came out with a second CL Dos Noeud inspired shoe style named “Izzie”. Available in various colors with an either leather or satin upper, these beauties will cost you a not so steal-worthy $328, but that’s still better than $1.045, right?

Update (01/29/2016): Stumbled upon these adorable bow back heels by Nina and they instantly reminded me of the Louboutins above. Available in various beautiful colors and uppers.

Kate Spade “Chrissie” Back-Bow Dress Sandals

And while I’d love to invest in the Louboutins above, I have to face reality and accept the fact that they’re way out of my price league. That’s why I made it my mission to find a similar shoe for less money. Et voilà, Kate Spade delivered! At $373.50 (sale price!), these cute bow heels are from being a “steal”, but they are about half the price of the Loubis while looking suspiciously similar to the CL Dos Noeud pumps. FYI: I wouldn’t mind having both versions in my closet. 😉 Available in deep red satin or black suede.
