The moment I first laid eyes onto these fancy satin bow slide sandals by Puma which came out as part of the new Fenty Puma by Rihanna collection earlier this month, I knew Rihanna would have another hit on her hands for the fashion-forward, sportswear-loving ladies (…and men since these are also available in men’s sizing). The new styles are supposedly inspired by the luxurious Parisian days of the famously known decadent Queen of France, Marie-Antoinette, the bow slides are a glammed up version of the classic soccer slide with a super cute satin bow adorning the slide strap which come in either a beautiful pastel pink or edgy olive green. The bow slides retail for $90 which is obviously far from being a designer shoe price, but a) these sandals are so in demand right now that they’re almost sold out everywhere and b) not everbody wants to spend almost $100 on a pair of pool slide sandals, so we took a look around to see whether we could find some lower priced alternatives. Spoiler alert: we did!

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!

Dune “Breanna” Jewelled Square Brooch Pointed Toe Satin Pumps

Update (08/05/2017): I think I might have spotted my favorite Hangisi dupes yet! They’re by Dune, cost $140 and also come in a beautiful white satin. Love, love, looooove! Prior to posting this dupe find, I made sure to order these gorgeous heels for myself before you guys could snag them up for yourself. Now I’m impatiently waiting for them to arrive at my doorstep. Will keep you posted how I like them in person! By the way, “Betti” is another great Hangisi dupe with a mid-height heel available in various colors and uppers like black and red and suede or patent leather.

River Island Satin Rhinestone Bow Pumps

Update (08/05/2017): Also really like these bow-adorned blue satin pumps I discovered at River Island which would also double as a great Manolo Blahnik Hangisi look for less alternative. They cost $96, so they’re exactly 90% cheaper than the real deal which I think is a totally awesome steal deal!

SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker “Windsor” Embellished Satin Pumps

Update (02/19/2017): Apparently one dupe was not enough, so Sarah Jessica Parker came up with a second Manolo Blahnik inspired version of her movie wedding heels for her own shoe line SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker. “Windsor” is far from being a steal at $585, but at least it’s approximately the same price as the one mentioned in the movie. Also available in silver grey satin.

EKS “Kricoa” Satin High Heel Pumps

Update (02/07/2017): If you’re not quite ready to invest $100 in a high quality dupe, you might want to consider these Manolo Blahnik look-alikes by EKS instead which cost half as much as the Kaitlyn Pan version. I wouldn’t expect the highest quality or longevity from these shoes, but according to the reviews buyers seemed to be quite happy with their Hangisi dupes, so they might be worth a try. Available in blue, black, rose pink and yellow satin.

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.

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.

Available in blue, black, ivory and white. Grab these Hangisi dupes while you can, I’m sure they are going to sell out super fast.

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!

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 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 – Chanel Quilted Boy Bag

by Irina on August 6, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on August 6, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

Oh boy! I think I might have a new favorite Chanel bag! I’ve always thought I would never like a Chanel bag more than their classic flap bag, but seeing the quilted version of the Chanel Boy bag below makes me reconsider. It’s edgier than all the classic Chanel bags and I love its modern twist. It looks fresh and new yet still remains to be quintessentially Chanel. Not sure how much this baggie retails for, but I do know that I’m not able to afford it. Boohoo!

When it comes to me obsessing over shoes it usually happens with high heels only. However, if it’s a shoe by Valentino I most likely will love it no matter whether it’s a sky-high stiletto or a flat gladiator sandal like this one. And I absolutely adore these studded summer sandals! Who wouldn’t anyway? They’re utterly chic without compromising on the comfort factor and the gold rockstuds really set these shoes off. I love how LeAnn Rimes wears her Valentinos with shorts and breezy tops. Too bad I don’t have her shoe shopping budget because at $975 these would have been quite the investment in terms of summer footwear.

bebe “Petra” Studded Flat Sandals

I was so happy to have stumbled upon these amazingly similar bebe gladiator sandals. They do miss one horizontal strap, but otherwise they’re a fabulous Valentino look-a-like. And did I mention they’re currently on sale for $39.99 (were $59.99)? What a great deal, right? But hurry up, some sizes are already out of stock as these summer sandals are figuratively flying off the shelves.
