Miu Miu

Update: This post has been updated on March 20, 2017. Scroll down to see the new adds.

Chances are you’re already pretty familiar with these double-strapped ribbon tie ballerina flats by Miu Miu because these ballerinas are the “It shoe” of the summer and the latest shoe trend to take over our fashion feeds. As you can see below some of our favorite bloggers and IGers have already been prancing the streets in those cute and quirky ballet flats channeling their inner prima ballerina. I must admit I haven’t been actively following Miu Miu’s collections for a while now, but these shoes made me fall in love with Miuccia Prada’s younger fashion line all over again. I just love how the belted straps toughen up the otherwise overly sweet ballerina design thus giving them an edgy and modern vibe while at the same time still maintaining a classic and feminine look. Also, how cool is the idea of wearing them with mismatched ribbon laces? Pure genius and so refreshingly new and creative! Naturally, we’ve gotten quite a few requests to find budget-friendly alternatives for these much sought after Miu Miu flats because a) these babies cost a whopping $620 now: $670 and b) the popular versions like the nude one for example are basically sold out everywhere anyway. Ergo: challenge accepted!

Steve Madden “Meow” Ribbon Tie Ballerina Flats

Last but not least are these lace-up flats by Steve Madden. They don’t have the buckled front straps like the real deal and thus are more of an “inspired by Miu Miu“-kind, but they do come with two sets of interchangeable ribbon laces, so the overall look is still very much Miu Miu without them being a blatant copy. Also how buttery soft does the blush leather look like here? Amazing for $35.95 (sale price!), no? Other available color options include black and silver metallic.

One really has to love the playfulness that is Miu Miu. How lovely are these colorful crystal-encrusted pumps? Absolutely gorgeous, aren’t they? Total statement shoes that would liven up any bland outfit of jeans and a black blazer. However, these lovely shoes aren’t only beautiful but expensive, too. Your alternatives? Well, you could either start a time-consuming DIY-project or buy one of the cute Miu Miu look-a-like options we’ve found below…

Jeffrey Campbell “Dulce” Embellished Pointed-Toe Pumps

First one up is this almost identical Miu Miu dupe by Jeffrey Campbell. There aren’t quite as many yellow stones on this pump, but the rest is pretty much spot-on. Not exactly a steal at $195 but still almost $800 less than the original.

This celebrity look of Miranda Kerr isn’t exactly new or anything, but I have always loved this classy outfit of hers, so when I saw the elegant pencil dress from Oasis a few days ago, I knew it’d be the perfect budget dress alternative for Miranda’s body-con Victoria Beckham frock. Do you like my take on this celebrity look 4 less?

When it comes to sunglasses, I kind of have this crush on Miu Miu. I love the quirky and unusual designs and have several Miu Miu sunnies at home. Last year Miu Miu launched their “Rasoir” capsule eyewear collection and it included this statement-making pair of semi-rimless cat eye sunglasses. And while I’m usually not a big fan of white sunnies, I think in this case the white version has the greatest WOW!-effect! But yeah, $335 and all. Not gonna happen anytime soon.

And lastly, here’s a lovely Miu Miu Rasoir dupe which features a cool marble print. Found these shades on Nasty Gal. They cost a little more ($22), but are still a million times cheaper (well, not really, but almost) than the original Miu Mius.

Have you ever seen such a sweet shoe!? I’m all about taking it back to the 50s with the saddle shoe influence and making it into an elegant pump like this one by Miu Miu! I love how Nicola Roberts pairs the pump with a long flowy skirt to match the delicate style of the shoe. The pump also looks amazing with any other dress or skirt as its the perfect neutral! This Miu Miu Peep-toe Bow Platform pump is so gorgeous I don’t even know if there can be a steal that looks as good as this one! But nonetheless, I will try especially since it’s priced at $650 and to no one’s surprise, sold out!

So this Chinese Laundry shoe has the design down and I like the fact that it comes in black. I’m not the biggest fan of the red, but I am the biggest fan of the price! Priced at $109.95 is not too shabby on your wallet!

Madden Girl “LIMMERIC” Platform Pumps

This is the Madden Girl version and granted it doesn’t have that same platform that I absolutely love about the Miu Miu, but it does have the contrasting color if you decide to go with the “bone” color. I think the Steve Madden version is good for someone who doesn’t like a lot of height in their shoe. So, priced at $34.99 isn’t too bad of a deal at all!
