I know you’re going to love this! Remember the gorgeous blue Cinderella-like Manolos Carrie wore at the end of the Sex and the City Movie? Yeah, I couldn’t get them out of my head either. The classic design and the bold blue hue make them great contenders for your favorite formal footwear.

Sex and the City Loves Manolo Blahnik

In the movie Carrie said they cost $525, but due to the vast demand retailers almost doubled the price to an outrageous $965 making them a fictional purchase for most of us shoe addicts who are living on a budget. What a bummer!

SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker “Maddalena” Pointy Toe Satin Pumps

UPDATE (01/21/2015): So basically Sarah Jessica Parker decided to dupe Manolo Blahnik’s highly popular “Something Blue” pump for her own shoe line SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker. The very same shoe which she has worn in the above mentioned Sex and the City movie. And she put a price tag of $545 on it, too. I don’t think her “good friend” Manolo will be too pleased finding out about this.

RSVP “Sincere” Satin Pumps

UPDATE (06/14/2012): Found yet another pair of Manolo Blahnik look-a-likes, again by RSVP. Available in 4 different colors: black, bronze, cobalt blue and silver satin. If you’re looking a higher heel, check out “Simonecj” by RSVP which isn’t quite as spot-on as “Sincere” but has a disctinctly higher heel.

RSVP “Zaza” Blue Satin Pumps

UPDATE (09/23/2009): Stumbled upon these awesome Manolo Blahnik knockoffs by RSVP today.

Look what I found! If you missed out on the Martinez Valero heels or just couldn’t justify the $160 price tag, these satin pumps by RSVP look almost identical, but are $60 cheaper. Available in blue, black, ivory and white. Grab these knockoffs while you can, I’m sure they are going to sell out super fast. RSVP also has a flat heeled version of the Manolo Blahnik look-a-likes called “Cassiecj” ($99) which looks exactly like the Martinez Valero version except with a low heel.

Shiekh Mitzy Hachi-200 Satin Pumps

UPDATE (09/23/2009): And here’s another alternative to the Manolo Blahnik Something Blue Satin Pumps.

I know these satin pumps by Shiekh aren’t exactly knockoffs, but the blue satin and the vamp embellishment reminded me of the Manolo Blahniks above and since these here resemble the Sedaraby pumps by Blahnik famously worn by Carrie Bradshaw a lot, I thought I just put them here as a budget-friendly alternative for under $50. Also available in pink and black satin!

Martinez Valero “Zenith” Blue Satin Pumps

Do not despair however! Because Martinez Valero has finally heard our prayers! He came up with an almost identical pair of his own blue satin pumps which also have the vamp embellishment, but cost only about 1/10 of the original Manolos. So if you are in need of beautiful yet affordable bridal shoes, these here might be your best bet. But hurry, once the masses get wind of these Manolo Blahnik look-a-likes, I guarantee you, they will be gone in a minute!

Despite writing this blog for more than 4 years and having an extensive knowledge about where to find the best designer look-a-likes, I firmly believe that there a few designer items out there worth purchasing. For me a few of those things would include a Burberry trench coat, a pair of classic Christian Louboutin pumps and a Prada bag. I recently had the chance to snag this beautiful Prada bag below at 30% off, but I chickened out of buying last minute and now – of course – I totally regret it. Well, maybe next time.

High Fashion 4285 Top Handle Satchel Bag

I don’t know what it is about orange designer bags, but they look extra luxe to me if they are dyed in this bright color (think orange Givenchy Antigona or orange Herm√®s Birkin). Prada’s Saffiano Lux also comes in this amazing standout colorls and if you want an orange statement bag for a non-designer price, this satchel by High Fashion is yet another great Prada alternative.

Hi dolls, can I just say, I am absolutely loving these high heel sandals sandals by Dior! These are so, so cute. And who knew? These are the same heels my all-time fav movie character, Ms. Carrie Bradshaw, wore in the Sex & the City Movie! Just add your own “Mr. Big”, a strong Cosmopolitan Martini and these cut-out sandals… o’ how sweet life would be. But because these are already a couple seasons old and therefore sold out and not for extreme coupon clippers, you can truly steal a pair from Bakers below. Psst… no coupon necessary.

Bakers “Candee” Platform Sandals

I LUV CANDY & these “Candee” heels from Bakers! OK, so they may not be made of real leather. And yes, they have a wooden platform. But at only $49.99 (sale price!), I still have enough money left over to buy a smokin’ hot dress for my date with “Mr. Big”! ūüėČ

I’ve been a huge fan of Brian Atwood for a few years and now that SJP flaunted her lilac Locas in the newest Sex and the City installment, it seems like everyone and their mother does love his shoes as well. Brian really stepped up his shoe game lately and these studded platform pumps with clear panel are absolutely hot! I love the contrast between the feminine lilac color and the kickass sky-high heel and gold studs. Too bad they’re way out of my budget at $800 a pair.

Hypnotic “Parker” Studded Pumps

These Hypnotic “Parker” pumps are a dead ringer for the Brian Atwood Locas. They come in 5 colors including taupe which is the closest to the original lilac, black, grey, red & blue faux suede. The black and grey version popped up on Shiekh Shoes today and you better head over and place your order immediately as these have sold out within hours at a few other retailers already. I couldn’t even write a quick post before they were all gone, so I held back until I saw a fresh restock and well, here you have ’em. They’re quite cheap at only $49.97. Now don’t waste your time reading here and grab ’em quickly!

Update: This post has been updated on December 22, 2010. Scroll down to read the news.

So we received quite a few reader requests to find a knock-off of the uber-glam Bridget strass-adorned lace booties by the legendary Christian Louboutin. These were designed by Monsieur Louboutin for Marchesa’s ethereal Spring 2010 collection and perfectly reflected the brand’s affinity for feminine details like lace and embellishments. Month after month passed by and no knock-offs were in sight. I began to think that copycats √† la Madden & Campbell shy away from this particular style because of the complicity of this shoe – the fragile strass & the delicate lace – details that’ll look incredibly tacky and wrong if done cheaply. But – lo and behold! Today was one of those rare lucky days…

Dollhouse “Tano” Platform Sandals

UPDATE (12/22/2010): OMG! AmiClubWear got hold of the Dollhouse “Tano” booties. If you missed out on this incredible Louboutin look-a-like earlier this year, this is your chance. Stock up on these gorgeous heels in all 3 colors (gold, black & red)! Many sizes still available. Don’t miss out on these & order them ASAP before they’re gone again!

Imagine my utter excitement when I spied these “Tano” sandals by Dollhouse yesterday! This knock-off is probably as good as it gets. Yes, they don’t have strass on the heel, but what do you expect from a $30 shoe? I think they look absolutely fabulous and they’re super affordable, on top of it. Gotta order these ASAP before you guys snap them all away. Available in gold, black and red. Order fast, I really don’t think these darlings will stay too long on the website once people catch wind of these Louboutins 4 less.

UPDATE (08/04/2010): I really didn’t think it would get better than Dollhouse’s Tano, but look at these floral embroidered Loubie look-a-likes by Anne Michelle! Wowza! They might not be top notch quality, but at half the price of the DH version you won’t hear me complaining. Available in gold (shown below) as well as black and silver.
