Valentino‘s shoe line from the “Rockstud” collection is probably the most popular here on this blog. And even though the Rockstud shoes have been going strong in the fashion community for a couple of years, there seems no sign of declining popularity with these pyramid studded, strappy Valentino shoes. We’ve written about quite a few shoe styles from the “Rockstud” family already and today we’re finally featuring the caged t-strap ballet flats. For a flat, this shoe is about as dressy as it gets; the luxe patent leather juxtaposed the shiny studded straps = perfection! But before you fall hopelessly in love, take a deep breath and look at the price tag: $975! And that’s the lower price limit for this type of Rockstud style. Other variations of the caged flat go as far up as $1.095! Now that’s a lot of money.

Katypeny Studded T-Strap Flats

Update (05/03/2017): Still looking for a pair of Valentino Rockstud dupes? How about these spot-on and budget-friendly look-alikes by Katypeny? They come in a bunch of colors (14!) and at $42.99 you don’t have to settle on just one color. Customer ratings average on 4/5 stars which I think is decent for a shoe under $50.

Diavolina “Delight” Studded T-Strap Flats

Luckily, there are some fantastic and affordable alternatives out there for all of us Valentino-loving fashionistas on a budget. Let’s start with my current favorite Valentino steal find which is the “Delight” by Diavolina, a spot-on Rockstud flat dupe which comes in either black or nude patent. Unfortunately, at $94.98 AUD (sale price!), it’s a pricey Valentino look-alike and also rather hard to get hold of outside of Australia, but nonetheless, it’s about 90% cheaper than the real deal, so I’d still consider this to be a great steal find if you’re willing to invest in a high-quality Valentino alternative.

Writing up a post about these “Ceinture” buckled booties by Balenciaga is a tough one for me. Why? Well, mainly because I don’t find myself very attracted to this type of masculine biker boots. Nor am I tall or skinny enough to pull off such a bulky boot. However, since these boots have been making the rounds on a number of style blogs and celebs lately, here you go with a couple of budget-friendly alternatives.

So I think this is the first time, after more than 3 years of writing this blog, that I feature a sneaker here on In Their Closet. Of course, it couldn’t be just any ordinary sneaker for this occasion, no, it had to be a “fashion sneaker” naturally, the most popular one being the “Bekett” / “Bekket” velcro sneaker by Madame Isabel Marant at this time. Personally, I both like and hate them; I’ve never been too fond of sporty looking shoes, but these exude that cool kid vibe and how clever is the hidden built-in wedge? Genius.

I think we can all agree that a black leather jacket is an absolute wardrobe staple and should be owned by every man and woman. I also think we can all agree on the fact that Acne Studios happens to make some of the best leather jackets everrrrrrr! (Velocite aviator jacket, anyone?) – Unfortunately, Acne leather jackets (also leather jackets in general) come at a price; in this particular case at $1.650 which is obviously a lot of money, even for a really cool leather jacket. But fret not, my dear fashionistas on a budget! Just keep on scrolling to discover how to get the uber-cool Acne moto look for a whole lot less.

I am usually not too fond of Louis Vuitton bags. I especially dislike their monogrammed range because I just don’t see the appeal of having a brand’s logos plastered all over my bag looking like a tacky advertisement. However, Sofia Coppola designed a bag for Louis Vuitton that got me obsessed! The SC bag is pure and simple elegance; I absolutely adore the minimalistic design and the no-fuss attitude it exudes. It’s such a beautiful bag in such a beautiful color! But, oh boy, is this bag expensive! $4.650? Like seriously, Louis Vuitton?

Update (05/09/2015): If you’re looking for a really high-quality Louis Vuitton SC alternative then A.L.C.‘s “Lucas” duffel satchel might be a good fit. The design is very similar to LV’s SC bag and I bet the craftmanship is superb, too, but you’d have to spend $895 on this beauty. Which, however, is still only about 1/5 of the LV SC bag’s price, so it’s a great deal overall.
