Oscar de la Renta

I’m quite excited about today’s Real vs. Steal feature. Maybe it’s because it’s not yet another shoe this time or maybe it’s because I’m a sucker for all things nautical and sparkling and Oscar de la Renta (who isn’t, right?). Maybe it’s a combination of all these things. Fact is: I’ve been hugely obsessed with this adorable striped sequin sweater by Oscar de la Renta from the very first moment I spotted it on Net-A-Porter. It was love at first sight! I mean, stripes and sequins, does it ever get better than these two? I highly doubt so. But even though I really, really loooove Oscar de la Renta, dropping almost 2k on a sweater is simply beyond my imagination.

I’ve almost buried my dream of ever coming across another such gorgeous sequin stripe sweater as the Oscar de la Renta one, but today I accidentally stumbled upon this lovely striped sweater style by Ann Taylor and I knew this was the perfect steal for the OdlR real deal above. The colors vary slightly, but the rest of the design is pretty much spot-on. And did I mention this sweater (which is also available in petite sizes by the way) is currently on sale for $39.88 (down from $89.50)? But the best part yet? Ann Taylor is currently having a promotion where customers get an extra 40% off sale items which means this Oscar de la Renta sweater dupe can be yours for a steal deal worthy $23.93! Let that price sink in for a moment. Now can we get a round of applause here, please?

I usually don’t post about high-end designer sales because I like to keep things affordable on this blog, but I just couldn’t pass up on this opportunity to let you know about this great sale at Oscar de la Renta. OdlR is one of my absolute favorite designers who never fails to impress me, so the chance to snag up one of his gorgeous designs at up to 40% off retail price is quite tempting. Sure, there are no steals to be made here, but if you take just one look at all the delicate and feminine pieces, you’ll know they’re worth every penny! Happy shopping!

Which girl doesn’t dream of having a pair of Manolo Blahniks to call her own? Unfortunately, price tags of $500 and upwards keep this dream from ever coming true. But fear not there are fab yet budget-friendly Manolo look-a-likes out there. And we have found a few great alternatives for those trying to save money. If I had a multimillionaire’s budget, I would gladly spend $755 on the Manolo Blahnik Sedaraby d’Orsay pumps. They look terrific, are super feminine and would make the perfect bridal shoe. Manolo high heels are also considered to be pretty comfy, so if I could I would already have these in my closet.

Oscar de la Renta “Miss Bling” d’Orsay Pumps

Update (05/30/2013): Found this super lovely silver d’Orsay pump by Oscar de la Renta which instantly reminded me of Manolo Blahnik’s Sedaraby heels. Certainly not a steal $447 (sale price!), but they are still 40% cheaper than the Manolos.

Touch Ups by Benjamin Walk “Ivanna” d’Orsay Pumps

Update (09/22/2012): And here’s yet another Manolo Blahnik Sedaraby alternative. These Touch Ups by Benjamin Walk d’Orsay kitten heels are available in either silver faux leather or black and white satin.

RSVP “Pretty” d’Orsay Pumps

Update (06/14/2012): Good news! Found another amazingly similar Manolo Blahnik Sedaraby look-a-like by RSVP. It has a satin upper and is available in an array of beautiful colors like fuchsia, blue, silver, gold and red.

Steve Madden “WARE” Pumps

Update (09/14/2010): I really didn’t think I would stumble upon another knockoff of the Sedaraby, but Steve Madden apparently wanted to prove me wrong. His Sedaraby inspired pumps come in silver and gold leather as well as black satin.

RSVP “Taran” D’Orsay Pumps

If you want a shoe in the identical style as shown above for a fraction of the price, RSVP has a great and budget-friendly alternative. Except for the heel, they look pretty much the same to me. And being priced at under $30 (sale price!) they are quite a steal, too. Also available in 5 other colors.

Dyeables “Onyx” D’Orsay Pumps

These Manolo Blahnik look-a-likes by Dyeables are my personal favorites. They are a little more expensive than RSVP’s “Taran”, but overall I’d say you’ll get better quality. The upper material is a beautiful silk satin and the heel is 3″ only. Score!

Pelle Moda “Nemo” Pumps

These d’Orsay pumps by Pelle Moda are also great Manolo Blahnik Sedaraby knockoffs. The heel on there is again slightly different, but otherwise the shoes look practically identical. They also happen to be the more expensive knockoffs costing $70 (sale price!). Available in silver, black, bronze, platinum and pewter.

A few months ago Eva Longoria sparkled on the red carpet of the 2009 ALMA Awards in a silver pailette-covered strapless column dress by Oscar De la Renta. The petite actress completed her stunning look with beautiful matching jewelry, flawless make-up and nude satin heels.
