Leave it to Chanel to make us crave those #grannyshoes we all deemed ugly when we were teenagers. And if it weren’t for Chanel and the iconic CC-logo on the side of the heel, I doubt these would have been quite as popular as they are right now, but even though I know the greater part of the allure of these shoes can be traced back to just being by Chanel, I somehow still understand why so many bloggers and fashion insiders are so in love with these. The two-tone cap-toe, the mid-height block heel, the convenient slingback; it’s the perfect example of 50s retro chic and an absolute timeless classic. By pairing these shoes with modern pieces such as ripped skinny jeans or a cool biker jacket, you will keep yourself from looking like an actual granny in these. And while I don’t know what the exact retail price is for these, we’re talking about Chanel here after all, so I think it’s safe to say that they’re expensive. And apparently very hard to get ahold of these days.

If there’s one thing Stuart Weitzman is exceptionally good at, it’s boots, especially the sexy kind. A few years ago, we had celebs and bloggers going crazy for the widely copied 50/50 OTK boots and now the fashion crowd is lusting after the “Highland”, a super sexy over-the-knee suede pull-on boot which has a lacing detail in the back. And even though I feel like I’ve seen this boot on pretty much every stylish celebrity and fashion blogger by now, I’m still not fed up with it in the slightest way. I also can’t seem to pick a favorite color! The taupe version is so cool and subdued while the black version really pops against bare legs and turns up the sexiness factor by quite a few notches! But as gorgeous as these suede thigh high boots are, at $798 (now on sale for 40% off: $477.99) these beauties are way too expensive for me to splurge on the real deal!

Update (01/09/2016): Discovered these awesome faux suede Weitzman Highland look-alike boots at ASOS today. Too bad I spotted them so late, because they’re out of stock in almost all sizes. Apparently however, they do come back in stock in limited quantities occasionally, so a little cyberstalking migh help here. The taupe version is available here, but it’s currently pretty much sold out as well.

Does the name Rene Caovilla ring a bell with you? If not, it definitely should and if you ask why, then just take a look at the darling shoes below and I’m sure you will all come to agree with me on this. Rene Caovilla is a family-run shoemaking business from Italy with a strong focus on jeweled luxury shoes. And as you can see, you don’t even have to be a high heel lover to be a fan. Their pearl- and bow-adorned thong sandal called “Venus” has been around for more than two decades now and is considered to be one of Caovilla’s most famous signature styles. Too bad you’d have to be pretty rich though because these babies are everything but cheap!

Marc Fisher “Fumi” Pearly Bow Flat Thong Sandals

Luckily, there’s no need to break the bank because these pearly bow flat sandals by Marc Fisher are the next best thing to Rene Caovilla if you’re on a budget. Fisher’s “Fumi” is astonishingly similar to Caovilla’s “Venus” sandals; the only noticeable difference being the missing crystal rim on the sole. But since they’re about one thousand dollars cheaper than the real deal, I wouldn’t complain too much about missing details.

ASOS “Funder” Pearly Bow Flat Thong Sandals

Another cute and slightly cheaper Rene Caovilla Venus alternative would have to be these faux-pearl bow thong sandals by ASOS. These are more of an “inspired by”-kind rather than an identical dupe, but I find them beautiful nonetheless. A similar version named “Florence” is available here.

We’ve already written multiple times about the items of Valentino‘s famed “Rockstud“-family and as you might remember, up until now I loved every single bag or shoe that came out with the unmistakably studded silhouette. However, when Valentino brought out a “kitten heel” version of their iconic Rockstud high heels, I wasn’t too impressed at first. Sure, I did love them from the front, but the side view? Not so much. Kitten heels just aren’t my cup of tea and probably will never be, but seeing them on the gorgeous bloggers and celebs below, at least I realized that there are women who can get away with wearing kitten heels (skinny girls with beautiful long legs specifically). What still kept me cringing about these kitten heels though is the hefty price tag of $995!

Don’t get me wrong: I loooooove high heels with utmost passion, but when summer is blazing its heatwaves upon us, the last thing I would think of wearing are high heeled shoes. A good flat sandal that you can easily slide in and out of and walk in for hours is absolutely essential in the summer; especially if you’re planning to go on vacation. Flip flops would be an obvious choice here, but aren’t we so over them by now? That’s why I am absolutely smitten with these backless knotted sandal leather slides by Joie. I love their minimalistic yet chic design (made in Italy, btw) and the supple cowhide leather; these would go with almost anything in my wardrobe. And while they’re not terribly expensive at $125 (now on sale for $56.25), we understand that many of you are on a budget, so we made it our mission to find some great alternative options for much less. Just keep on reading.
