As much as I love the vintage look of these classic patent leather t-strap pumps by Gucci, I have a hard time seeing myself shell out almost $700 for such a simple shoe design. And I guess most of you are with me on this. Luckily, I found a couple nice (and budget-friendly) alternatives that won’t break the bank.

Office “Selina” T-Bar Pointy Pumps

My favorite steal are these almost identical t-bar heels which I’ve come across at Office. The design is really close to the Gucci pumps, but the price is so much nicer at £65 (approx. $105). Available in black and nude patent leather.

If you prefer a lower heel, then these Adrienne Vittadini t-strap pumps would be a great alternative to the Gucci shoes above. Currently on sale for under $50 and also available in various other colors.

I’m not much of a fringe lover to be honest, but when first I spotted this beautiful electric blue suede Nouveau bag by Gucci, I was instantly smitten with it, fringe included. The supple suede and the long fringes give it such a laid-back ’70s vibe while the vibrant blue color adds to the statement factor of this eyecatcher of a bag. Of course, this beauty comes at a price. At $2.500, to be exact.

Nasty Gal x Nila Anthony “Lizzy” Suede Crossbody Bag

Luckily, there’s no need to ruin your bank account because Nila Anthony brings us the Gucci look on a budget. Their “Lizzy” bag is obviously an homage to the Gucci Nouveau bag seen above. It’s not a spot-on dupe, but definitely very similar in design. I especially like how they’ve kept the vivid color on this one. $98 and the bag is yours!

The Gucci Huston Mary Jane Plaform Suede Pumps are a fusion of the classic Mary Jane silhouette with a 1970s take, significant both to modern elegance and the disco fashion. The soaring heel draws attention as it contradicts with the mellowness and sweetness of a Mary Jane styled shoe. As these pumps come in several hues, I have to say that every color is uniquely presented bringing a sense of disco-like glamour to the table. I admire the the plum purple hue with the deep gold piping as it is sophisticated yet retro-chic. These pumps are essentially iconic and representative of 1970s trends which are resurfacing into the modern fashion world.

bebe “Nadia” Metallic Trim Velvet Sandals

The bebe Nadia Metallic Trim Velvet Sandal has a luxurious appeal by which it features a staggering platform heel and metallic toned velvet and piping. These sandals resemble the Gucci heels above, and really bring on the nostalgic Hollywood glamour guise that we all crave. I am fond of the peep-toe element as it compliments both cocktail attire and can be dressed down for more casual wear. These are way more affordable than the Gucci Huston Mary Jane Pumps, plus are available in dark red, black, and taupe.

Real vs. Steal – Gucci 1970 Tassel Shoulder Bag

by Roseanne on January 7, 2013

One does not have to be a connoisseur of handbags to see how beautiful and chic this 1970 Tassel Shoulder Bag by Gucci is. Featuring a gold-plated and minimalistic tassel, the handbag itself is quite simple, which in part, makes it so easy to wear. The price of more than $2.000, however, does not exactly make the “1970” so simple to purchase. Celebrities, on the other hand, generally have an expandable budget and showcase how elegant this handbag truly is, regardless of the occasion. To indulge oneself in such a sartorially pleasing handbag, scroll down for the amazing look-a-like below!

BagInc “Lila” Leather Tassel Hobo Bag

HOT DEAL: Use our exclusive promo code “INTHEIRCLOSET” for 10% OFF your order!

This “Lila” Leather Tassel Hobo Bag by BagInc perfectly mimics the Gucci “1970”. It is the combination of the shape, hardware details, tassel, and the great addition of a shoulder strap. I have to say, although gold and rose gold detailing is trending at the moment, I love how this handbag features silver hardware instead. Of course, although it is personal preference, I think that the silver adds a certain elegance to the bag. Plus, BagInc allows for various color options according to the occasion and one’s taste. I, for instance, especially love the neutral color as it goes with every item in my wardrobe!

The T-Strap classic just got much sexier thanks to Gucci and one of my favorite color combinations: black and gold. They have such a subtle platform and that playful peep-toe is like a little wink as you walk. The best part though is the sheer versatility. You can wear them with anything from a glamorous vintage dress to just jeans and a black tee for a night out. I absolutely adore them! Everything about these retro inspired beauties is extravagant, including the price tag. Even then, they still managed to sell out. Well, luckily for us, there is a designer out there that knew we needed beautiful shoes like these at a more affordable price, and they came through! Keep scrolling to find out more.

Steven by Steve Madden “Adalyn” T-Strap Platform Pumps

Yes, it is the fantastic Steven by Steve Madden. I haven’t been disappointed by a pair of these yet! Of course there are a couple of differences; the platform, gold details and chain are not exact. But from a distance, they are quite similar indeed. Try wearing your new heels with a jumpsuit or palazzo pants for a little seventies glamour, or perhaps with a pencil skirt and halterneck blouse for some instant sixties sophistication. You really can’t go wrong with this investment, they can definitely complete an incredible variety of fabulous looks to wear year round! Of course I’m a fan of classic black, but they are also available in nude, turquoise and purple.
