Photoshoots

My love for Giuseppe Zanotti rekindled with his last few collections. I wasn’t a fan of all those crazy over-embellished super extreme platforms, but these ankle strap high heel sandals below really hit home with me. I love the sleek, minimalistic silhouette and how cool is the gold plated heel? Doesn’t it totally look like some sort of gladiator-like armor? I love details like that! But $695? Ouch!

To brighten up your day – both literally and metaphorically – simply turn to these Lady Peep Spikes Platform Pumps by Christian Louboutin for an instant (mood) lift. They are bold, edgy and elegant in their own right. These stunning red heels master the popular spiked detailing all the while maintaining Louboutin’s signature shape. They are so captivating that staring becomes the most appropriate form of admiration. But besides that, these pumps – with their bold detailing and all – manage to be very wearable. The budget of $1.395 is not necessarily the price one has to pay for these beauties as we have several affordable look-a-likes below!

ALDO “Petrona” Spiked Peep-toe Pumps

These “Petrona” Spiked Peep-toe Pumps are one-for-one in comparison with the Louboutins above. They appear to be so strikingly similar that it is hard to believe that these ALDO pumps are priced at a mere $100 as opposed to the exuberant designer price. The detailing is quite similar and questions whether it is even worth splurging $1000+ on designer footwear, when one can purchase something so similar with a budget-conscious outlook. In addition to this bold red color, these pumps are also available in black for a superlative edgy vibe.

Steve Madden “ANDIIE” Spiked Platform Pumps

HOT DEAL: Use promo code “SMAUG1” to get 15% off orders of $80 or more at Steve Madden including free shipping! Offer valid through 08/31/2013. Some exclusions apply.

Not only are these Steve Madden “ANDIIE” Spiked Platform Pumps an amazing Louboutin look-a-like, they are also extremely budget-friendly, currently on sale for $47.99! I really like both the nude and black patent as they are very eye-capturing, but are more toned down which makes them easier to wear for various events and occasions. The heel is also one my favorite aspects about this shoe as it is sky-high which elongates the legs and overall gives a very flattering appearance. Although these spiked platforms are generally very fun, they also have a note of modern elegance. For example, Kate Beckinsale looks so polished and elegant.

If I ever want to add a dash of sex appeal, I usually reach for a pair of sky-high heels and instantly I feel transformed. But these Alexander Wang Metallic Sandals are in a league all their own. They are one part mysterious and two parts siren, and how gorgeous is that metallic rose gold? Unfortunately, they are completely sold out, but you can snag a similar pair for a fraction of the original $495 price tag. Check out the steals below!

If there was ever a shoe to rival Louboutin‘s iconic Pigalle pumps, for me, it would be the Décolleté 554 – an insanely classic yet sexy pointed stiletto pump in a showstopping red patent upper! This heel is shoe perfection and to me it’s just as beautiful and lustworthy as Louboutin’s much more famous Pigalle heels. And even though this Louboutin style is moderately priced at $625 (for a Louboutin shoe, that is), unfortunately it is still way out of reach for me!

Ivanka Trump “Kayden” Pointed-Toe Pumps

Well, hello there, Ivanka Trump! Now isn’t their “Kayden” pump an absolutely adequate budget alternative to the red Louboutins above? Almost twins, don’t you agree? Really love this one in red! Also available in an array of different colors such as black, nude, blush, coral and oxblood.

GUESS Neodan 3 Pointed-Toe Stiletto Pumps

Another great Louboutin alternative would be this black patent stiletto pump by GUESS. I wish the heel was a bit more delicate like the original Louboutin one, but it’s still a very close match. Also available in various other colors including turquoise patent.

I love Victoria Beckham‘s style. She always looks put-together and dresses incredibly well for her petite figure. This dress is another great addition to any girl’s closet. It has a classic shape, bold yet sophisticated colors and, best of all, versatility. Wear it with black tights and boots or by itself with some towering heels. You can also change it up depending on the weather (or the occasion). The fabric contours splendidly over curves and the stripes are placed strategically for the best impact. While this highly sought-after design is already sold out in stores, you can still obtain a fantastic steal. Scroll a little further down and see it for yourself! You won’t believe your eyes.

McBerry Stripe Red-Black 3/4 Sleeve Pencil Dress

Just as sultry as the designer version, this dress by McBerry is perfect for so many occasions. The stripes are placed a bit differently (this dress really flatters narrow shoulders), but it has the same modern color-blocked look and can be worn exactly the same way as the original. Simply add a large tote and platforms for a daytime look and black patent pumps and a clutch for an evening outfit and you’re all set. Depending on your style, perhaps wear some small earrings and a modern cocktail ring. Try to keep accessories simple as this dress is just asking to steal the show! Posh Spice would definitely be proud of this find. After all, she once admitted that her famous little black frock was a super steal, too! Another bonus? It’s also available in orange/black.
