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?

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.

We haven’t had a sunglass post in a while, so here you go! Have I ever told you that I’m quite fond of cat eyes and tortoise when it comes to sunglasses? So naturally, I’m a little obsessed with these two-tone sunnies by Kate Spade. But since I have already about a gazillion pair of sunglasses at home, there’s absolutely no way I’d spend $170 on yet another pair.

Fantas Eyes “Witch” Cat-Eye Sunglasses

While doing my daily blog research I stumbled upon these lovely cat-eye sunglasses by Fantas Eyes and they instantly reminded me of the Kate Spade pair above. However, these are $22 only and you know what? I think I even like this steal deal more than the real deal. How about you?

Stripes! They are everywhere right now! Well, actually, they’ve always been there because let’s face it, stripes are a classic, timeless staple, but this season monochrome stripes are the hottest trend there is which makes me – a total stripes addict – a very happy shopper. Look at this lovely Kate Spade dress for example! The stripe print is so elegant, nautical-inspired and the silhouette is incredibly feminine and especially flattering for the curvy girls among us. However, the retail price for this beautiful frock is a whopping $448 and even the sale price of $291.20 is still pretty hefty!

BB Dakota “Zamora” Striped Dress

When I first saw the Kate Spade dress above, I immediately thought of this just as lovely frock by BB Dakota which we have already featured in our “Style Battle: The Striped Dress“-post a while back. It’s very similar to the pricey Kate Spade number, but, luckily, is so much more affordable. To be honest, I think I might prefer BB Dakota’s version because it is more waisted, a little shorter and just looks a bit more youthful in general. Also, its’ price is soooo much nicer on the wallet. Only a few selected sizes are still available though, so you better hurry and order quickly if you’re still in need of a cute sundress for summer.

Is there a shoe that’s more festive than a sparkling bow-adorned pink slingback high heel sandal like this one by Kate Spade? It’s such a cute style and would be the perfect heel to wear to a New Year’s Eve party! Too bad these pink beauties cost a whopping $325!

Luckily, I came across this super similar bow heel by Flounce that has all the same characteristics as the Kate Spade sandals and it costs only $44.96. That’s quite the steal, isn’t it?
