Remember the mega craze for Tory Burch‘s highly-coveted “Reva” ballet flats a few years back? Well, the hype around these logo medallion-adorned classic flats may have died down a little since, but it’s still a very lovely and versatile shoe worth having in your wardrobe. And at $225 per pair these shoes are rather on the lower price spectrum of designer shoes we’ve featured here over the years.

Audrey Brooke “Kristin” Ballet Flats

If you can’t or don’t want to spend more than $200 on a pair of basic flats, here’s a great alternative by Audrey Brooke which will give you the luxurious look of Tory Burch for under $20. Also available in various other colors and uppers.

Aldo “Chaya” Ballet Flats

I also found these flats by Aldo which are also obviously inspired by Tory Burch’s Reva ballerina flats. At $70 they’re slightly more expensive than the Audrey Brooke version, but the Aldo flats are also made of real leather which the Audrey Brooke ones are not.

Chances are you’re already well aware of Daniel Wellington watches. The brand is admittedly a little overrepresented in the fashion blogosphere and on social media, but even though it seems like every other fashion blogger is showing off their DW timepiece in their Instagram feed, I still find these watches very beautiful and I love the fact that you can exchange the straps (my favorites are the nautical inspired ones such as the Canterbury and the Warwick). They are not the most expensive watches (most prices are based around the $200 mark), but if you don’t feel like spending that much on a watch made in China, read on to find some cheaper alternatives.

So how about this 10 strap watch set by Territory which is currently on sale for a super budget-friendly price of $29.99 (down from $59.99)?

Basically you get 10 watches in one which lowers the price down to an unbeatable $3 per watch. Total steal deal alert here!

It’s finally summer and my feet are screaming for a summer vacation! These floral lace espadrilles by Valentino would be the perfect summer shoes because they’re flat (= comfortable) and the lace fabric makes them not only super stylish but also super airy which means no sweaty feet on hot summer days. Too bad they’re probably the most expensive pair of espadrilles I’ve ever seen (well, besides those from Chanel, of course).

Update (03/04/2016): Found another great Valentino alternative! These lace espadrilles by Diane von Furstenberg aren’t exactly a steal at $228, but they are 60% cheaper than the Valentino version, so it might be worth the splurge.

Update (03/07/2014): While these lace espadrilles by Stuart Weitzman are certainly far away from being a steal at $124.99, they are still much cheaper than the Valentinos and quite pretty, too, don’t you agree? Available in black, gold and ivory lace.

XOXO “Kara” Lace Espadrille Flats

Et voilà, here you go with a super similar and super affordable Valentino look-a-like by XOXO. The lace fabric isn’t quite as delicate, but at $15.95 (sale price!) you can’t expect the quality of real chantilly lace. Also available in navy.

Soludos Lace Flower Espadrilles

Another great alternative would be these espadrilles by Soludos. They’re a little more expensive than the XOXO version, but the lace on these also looks significantly better in return. Also available in off-white.

A few months ago we received a reader request from Maggie who asked:

Any idea where a sista can find some leather strap shoes like these that AREN’T $1.000?!

The shoe Maggie was talking about was a strappy stiletto pump by Gianvito Rossi which has been on my personal wish list as well after I first spotted it on personal style blogger at large, Blair Eadie from Atlantic-Pacific. It’s a truly gorgeous shoe, but shelling out that kind of money is simply not an option for me and Maggie (and probably you as well). So the hunt for Gianvito Rossi Carey dupes ensued.

Update (09/23/2015): Although not exactly a steal at $215, these strappy stiletto heels by Raye are still a fabulous and spot-on look for less alternative to the Gianvito Rossi pumps above.

Currently on sale for a very wallet-friendly $24.99 (down from $119) and available in black, nude, nude black and grey/white snake print leather. Now get these babies before they’re gone!

River Island Black Leather Strappy Pumps

Et voilà, River Island comes to our rescue! Their strappy black leather pump may not be an identical match, but for $130, it’s the closest you can get to Gianvito Rossi’s Carey heel at the moment. A few sizes are already sold out (including mine, boohoo!), so if you’re lusting after this style and yours is still available, I wouldn’t wait too long to order.

Milanoo Pointy-Toe Stiletto Pumps

If you don’t want to spend quite as much or if your size is simply sold out for the Gianvito Rossi dupe above, then take a look at this strappy heel I discovered at Milanoo. The design isn’t quite as sharp and polished compared to the original, but the overall look still screams Gianvito Rossi Carey and the price of $56.99 is pretty neat, too.

The minute I first laid my eyes on Gucci‘s “Beverly” pumps, I was instantly obsessed! I’m so in love with its sexy-meets-retro look. The thin t-strap is giving these shoes a feminine and delicate vintage look while the patent leather adds some modern oomph to the mix. And while they are not terribly expensive for a pair of designer heels, they’re still too expensive for me. Boohoo!

Sole Society “Anouk” T-Strap Leather Pumps

While recently browsing through the new arrivals of Sole Society, I happened to stumble upon these lovely t-strap heels which reminded me of the Gucci heels above. They are not a perfect dupe or anything and I wish they’d come in patent leather, but the look is still very similar to Gucci, don’t you agree?
