Out & About

Update: This post has been updated on September 13, 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!

Last but not least are these lace-up flats by Steve Madden.

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.

Real vs. Steal – Céline Rodeo High Ankle Boots

by Irina on September 12, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on September 12, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

I feel like lately ankle boots have become the new high heels. Heeled booties? Yes, please! But favorably with a block heel, so the boots stay wearable and the heel height stays manageable. We know by now that French fashion house, Céline, can get away with pretty much anything and everything and still easily maintain that understated coolness vibe. Case in point: their latest “It“-shoe of the moment, the Rodeo High Ankle Boot; a very loooong and very pointy Western-style ankle boot with a wooden block heel and heavy, brass-colored studs along the sole. At first, I wasn’t much of a fan of the boot when I saw it on its own, but once the blogger and street style outfits started rolling in featuring these Cowboy-style infused booties, I was instantly won over: these boots have some serious iconic shoe potential. And if you can afford them, by all means, invest in them! If you can’t, however, just keep on reading to find more budget-conscious options that will give you a similar Céline Rodeo boot look.

I love Office‘s shoes! There I said it. I own several pairs of Office shoes and love them all to death! The quality is pretty decent, the prices are fair and the collections are all very up-to-date and with a lot of designer inspired, budget-friendly options in between. “Levi” is quite obviously inspired by Céline’s Rodeo boots without being a blatant knock-off, plus it’s quite affordable at £64. And it’s also available in a non-studded version if studs aren’t exactly your thing.

Alright, let’s talk Gucci again. I know we’ve already featured the “Princetown” loafer mules here on this blog before, but that was just the basic, no-frills version and ever since the huge success of the “Princetown” loafer, Gucci has released like a gazillion variations of new Princetowns, so we felt obligated to show you at least one more of the most coveted Princetown styles. This blog post will focus on the floral embroidered one which features a delicate pink rose embroidery on the vamp and either comes with a fur trim on the footbed ($1.050) or not ($780). If you can afford the real deal, by all means, go for it since there are absolutely no signs of the loafer mule trend slowing down this summer. But if you’re on a tight budget and dropping that kind of money on ONE pair of shoes is simply not justifiable to you, keep on reading as we’ve discovered some amazing Gucci alternatives that won’t break the bank.

I found this dupe while browsing Amazon recently, the brand is called LaRosa and the loafer mules come in either black or white. I can’t personally vouch for this brand as I think these Gucci dupes are from one of those many generic China-based copycat sellers, but judging by the pictures, the quality looks decent for $69.99.

Real vs. Steal – Céline Mini Luggage Tote

by Irina on August 26, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on August 26, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

Phoebe Philo sure knows the secret sauce to creating “It“-bags. Back when she was at Chloé we had the Paddington craze and years later when she returned to the fashion stage and started to design for Céline she did it all over again and made the “Luggage” tote the most sought-after bag in the whole wide fashion world. And as you can see below Hollywood loves their Mini Luggages, too! That’s why it’s practically impossible to get your hands on this bag. It consequently sells out, one bag at a time.

I have waited almost half a year to write about the Céline Luggage tote simply because I wanted to find the perfect steal for you. Finally, I have found it! And here it is, waiting for you at BagInc. Practically twins, the only noticeable difference to me is the missing logo in the front. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Céline look-a-like! It’s made of authentic leather, is well-crafted and you get all that for a little over $100 (less if you use our exclusive reader discount code above). You better grab this bag asap, it’s probably the next best thing if you can’t afford the original. If you’re looking for the just as coveted black-and-white version, check out BagInc’s “Vanessa” colorblock bag ($109).
