Real vs. Steal

Chanel espadrilles, round 3. This time we’re showing you the leather version (see the mesh and canvas version here). The top color combination is my personal favorite! Perfect shoes for summer, don’t you agree? I’ve said it before: despite the hype surrounding these shoes I still really like these cute espadrilles, but there’s no way I would spend so much money on a pair of espadrilles even though I can imagine that the leather version is the most durable of all the three variations. But still, $550? Um, no, thank you.

Sam Edelman “Lanza” Slip-On Espadrilles

Update (07/12/2017): Stumbled upon these fab cap-toe leather espadrilles by Sam Edelman today and had to share them with you as I think they’d make a great budget-friendly alternative to the Chanel version above. They’re a little on the pricey side at $100, but you should take into account that these are made of genuine leather and the craftmanship looks pretty great as well, so if you want a sturdy high-quality dupe that will last you a while, I’m sure these would be a great choice!

Satin sandal slides have been a huge trend this year and Gianvito Rossi just knows how to make a chic summer flat that will look fabulous both with dressy dresses or with casual jeans or shorts. I love the effortlessness of being able to simply slide into a shoe and be instantly ready to go. These are the perfect shoes for a summer vacation! If you have the lavish shopping budget to opt for a pair of flats that’ll set you back $595, of course.

Luckily, we’ve been able to find a just as chic alternative by Chinese Laundry which looks a lot like the designer real deal above, but will cost you less than $40 (currently on sale for $36.99 down from $49.95). These stylish satin slides come in four different colors, but the rose and the nude version are my personal favorites! Steal deal alert!

They have a more prominent fringe, but the overall design is still strinkingly similar to the Gianvito Rossi designer version. Love these!

If you happen to spend some time on Instagram occasionally and follow one or two major fashion accounts, chances are you’re probably already familiar with “Les Bonbons” by Rebecca de Ravenel. These ball drop clip-on statement earrings which are made of lightweight silk, are handmade in India and come in a variety of lengths, materials and colors, have been designed by up-and-coming jewelry designer Rebecca de Ravenel who grew up between the Bahamas and Paris; an influence that is reflected in her aesthetic (check out her fabulous Instagram account) and her colorful designs which are both bold and playful. What Rebecca de Ravenel’s designs are NOT however: cheap! Depending on the design, you’d have to shell out between $295 and $345 for a pair of “Les Bonbons” to call yours! A price not every fashionista would be willing to pay for such a trendy accessory that might be out of fashion by next summer.

Leave it to Chanel to make us crave those #grannyshoes we all deemed ugly when we were teenagers. And if it weren’t for Chanel and the iconic CC-logo on the side of the heel, I doubt these would have been quite as popular as they are right now, but even though I know the greater part of the allure of these shoes can be traced back to just being by Chanel, I somehow still understand why so many bloggers and fashion insiders are so in love with these. The two-tone cap-toe, the mid-height block heel, the convenient slingback; it’s the perfect example of 50s retro chic and an absolute timeless classic. By pairing these shoes with modern pieces such as ripped skinny jeans or a cool biker jacket, you will keep yourself from looking like an actual granny in these. And while I don’t know what the exact retail price is for these, we’re talking about Chanel here after all, so I think it’s safe to say that they’re expensive. And apparently very hard to get ahold of these days.

Don’t get me wrong: I loooooove high heels with utmost passion, but when summer is blazing its heatwaves upon us, the last thing I would think of wearing are high heeled shoes. A good flat sandal that you can easily slide in and out of and walk in for hours is absolutely essential in the summer; especially if you’re planning to go on vacation. Flip flops would be an obvious choice here, but aren’t we so over them by now? That’s why I am absolutely smitten with these backless knotted sandal leather slides by Joie. I love their minimalistic yet chic design (made in Italy, btw) and the supple cowhide leather; these would go with almost anything in my wardrobe. And while they’re not terribly expensive at $125 (now on sale for $56.25), we understand that many of you are on a budget, so we made it our mission to find some great alternative options for much less. Just keep on reading.

Wanted “Munn” T-Bar Knotted Flat Sandals

Update (12/14/2016): Also found these knotted summer sandals by Wanted which are a spot-on dupe of the Joie originals. They’re a little pricey at $129.95 AUD, but once they go on sale these might be a nice and budget-friendly alternative to the real deal. Available in tan, white, silver and leopard.

Mossimo Supply Co. “Ainsley” Knot Thong Sandals

If you’re on a really tight budget, then these cute thong sandals by Mossimo Supply Co. are probably your best option. The design is spot-on, they come in three different colors (black, brown and white) and they can be yours for less than $15! Only downside? These are made of PU leather, so no promises regarding durability and/or sweaty feet here.

Sole Society “Sarena” Knotted Slip-On Thong Sandals

If you’re willing to invest a little more for a genuine leather option, check out these chic summer sandals by Sole Society. Again, these are pretty much a spot-on dupe compared to the Joies above (plus, I love that these are made of genuine leather). The price of $29.98 (sale!) ain’t too bad either (that’s less than half the price of the real deal).
