Vince Camuto “Marken” Mary Jane Platform Pumps

Dear Vince Camuto, thanks for making these “Marken” pumps! Nothing like the real thing, but by fabricating these in black or beige patent leather I can wear these anytime of the year. By the way, the $89.99 price tag makes this girl very happy.

Ta-daaa! Another case of Copycat Math unveiled! Bebe’s inspiration for their “Sydney” wedge sandals have been obviously coming from French fashion house Yves Saint Laurent as well as Italian’s finest shoemaker, Signore Giuseppe Zanotti. Well, I certainly know which price I like the most here…

Cork, canvas and navy. Now doesn’t this sound like the perfect nautical-inspired summer shoe? Yves Saint Laurent has come up with yet another lustworthy shoe in the form of these “Deauville” cork platforms. Just looking at these makes me want to spend my summer on a yacht lavishly sipping on a bunch of cocktails. The $695 price tag brings me back down to earth rather quickly though.

Steve Madden to the rescue! Look, it’s another almost identical YSL copy. The only visible difference to me is the missing indent on the cork wedge platform. Everything else looks spot-on. Available in navy, black and natural fabric.

Couture Closet Cravings

by Irina on April 24, 2011

I usually refrain from posting my obsessions that have an astronomical price tag, but I’ve stumbled upon so many great new things lately that I felt I had to share them with you even though they’re a tad out of my price range (and probably out of yours, too). Most of the picks are not super, super pricey but rather in the upscale department (all pieces except for the dress are below $500). Enjoy!

Couture Closet Cravings

Go Shopping:

  • BAG #1: Linea Pelle “Parker” Croco Shoulder Bagcj, $295 – I never knew I wanted a white bag until I saw this one by Linea Pelle. The perfect accessory to lighten up any outfit.
  • RING #1: Yves Saint Laurent Arty Gold-Plated Glass Ringls, $250 – Oh how I am obsessed with this azure YSL arty ring. Yesterday I was even willing to lay down those $250 and on the verge of hitting the “Order”-button, but for some stupid reason I can’t figure out my ring size. But, sooner or later this ring is going to grace my greedy little fingers! Probably sooner than later though.
  • DRESS: Paul & Joe Osmose Floral-Print Silk-Chiffon Gownls, $1.605 – I am usually not inclined to boho fashion, but this floral maxi wrap dress by Paul & Joe is the epitome of spring chic. J’Adore!
  • SHOES: Vera Wang Lavender “Burke” Platform Sandalsls, $425 – As a shoeaholic it’s simply impossible NOT to love this strappy platform sandal by Vera Wang. Just look at that sick silver stiletto heel! Beyond perfection!
  • BAG #2: Marc by Marc Jacobs “Saddlery Sophie” Satchelcj, $478 – M by MJ bags always look pretty amazing, but this one definitely takes the cake. I love the red trimmed straps on this satchel. The shape is classic and the size is just right for an everyday bag.
  • RING #2: Merle O’Grady Spike Ring, $244.20 – Gold & turquoise is always a win in my book, so it sure didn’t come as a suprise to me that I am totally craving this spike ring by Merle O’Grady. I love statement jewelry!

Hello boys & girls, you should probably know that YSL is AOK in my book! In the last couple of years their accessories (especially their shoes) have really become the “It” piece in any fashionable girl’s closet! Clearly, this is old news to those who have these beautiful slingback pumps like the six famous fashionistas below. But for those whose moniker is budget fashionista and wallets are facing some trial & tribulations, well, you and your pretty lil’ broke self (I say this with love) just keep on reading for a less expensive version of the Tribtoo slingbacks.
