Real vs. Steal

Update: This post has been updated on December 14, 2016. Scroll down to see the new add.

I feel like lately ankle boots have become the new high heels. Heeled booties? Yes, please! But favorably with a block heel, so the boots stay wearable and the heel height stays manageable. We know by now that French fashion house, Céline, can get away with pretty much anything and everything and still easily maintain that understated coolness vibe. Case in point: their latest “It“-shoe of the moment, the Rodeo High Ankle Boot; a very loooong and very pointy Western-style ankle boot with a wooden block heel and heavy, brass-colored studs along the sole. At first, I wasn’t much of a fan of the boot when I saw it on its own, but once the blogger and street style outfits started rolling in featuring these Cowboy-style infused booties, I was instantly won over: these boots have some serious iconic shoe potential. And if you can afford them, by all means, invest in them! If you can’t, however, just keep on reading to find more budget-conscious options that will give you a similar Céline Rodeo boot look.

BCBGeneration “Jonnie” Stud Detail Block Heel Booties

Update (12/14/2016): Spotted another Céline Rodeo inspired ankle bootie by BCBGeneration. It’s not quite as extreme in its features as the real deal, but close enough to give you a similar look. Available in black leather as well as mink and wheat suede. Currently on sale for $53.99 at Dillard’s.

Office “Levi” Studded Western Boots

I love Office‘s shoes! There I said it. I own several pairs of Office shoes and love them all to death! The quality is pretty decent, the prices are fair and the collections are all very up-to-date and with a lot of designer inspired, budget-friendly options in between. “Levi” is quite obviously inspired by Céline’s Rodeo boots without being a blatant knock-off, plus it’s quite affordable at £98. And it’s also available in a non-studded version if studs aren’t exactly your thing.

So there’s the Acne Pistol boots and the Rag & Bone Newbury booties – these both boot styles share the reign over the coveted designer bootie “goes-with-everything” kingdom in Hollywoodland. I’d love to join the fashionable crowd below, but spending $495 on shoes isn’t currently a viable option. However, I’ve found an almost identical match for all our budget-conscious readers and… well, me.

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, 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.

So who’s up for some new Christian Louboutin goodness today? Because we have a super pretty Louboutin heel we really want to show you. “Toerless Muse” is a gorgeous pointed-toe stiletto pump enclosed by delicate horizontal and vertical straps giving the shoe a very refined, sexy caged look. The bold design obviously needs space to fully unfold its cage effect, so these beauties should be best worn with a dress that shows some leg (see Olivia Palermo and Kendall Jenner for reference). Unfortunately, these Louboutins are pretty much sold out everywhere and even if you had the luck to find them somewhere, most of us would probably have a hard time justifying spending $900 on a pair of shoes.

Well, well, now look who took some (or more like a lot) inspiration from their overflowing designer shoe closets for their own shoe collection?

Otherwise, they’re pretty much identical. “Alisha” is available in either black or taupe leather for under $50 (sale price!).

Can we please have a moment of OMG!-silence for this AH!-mazing Balmain blazer? Consider me obsessed big time. If there ever existed something such as the perfect blazer, this gold-buttoned double-breasted navy wool-twill blazer which comes with Balmain’s signature razor-sharp silhouette would definitely be one of them. Just take a look at how gorgeous and effortlessly elegant all the beautiful ladies below look in their Balmain-adorned outfit ensembles. Perfection! I’d even be willing to splurge on a classic fashion staple such as this blazer, but its price of $2.385 is just beyond any common sense. My credit card does not approve.

Missguided Double-Breasted Military Style Blazer

Stylekeepers “You Set Me Free” Double-Breasted Blazer

Update (08/01/2016): Just discovered this spot-on Balmain dupe by Stylekeepers in a beautiful khaki green for $145 AUD. If you prefer a more classic color, check out the “Sweet Success” blazer which looks similar to this one and comes in black.

Banana Republic Nautical-Style Basketweave Blazer

My personal favorite Balmain look for less alternative is this nautical basketweave blazer I discovered at Banana Republic recently. All the important Balmain details are there: a fitted silhouette, double-breasted front, gold buttons and a beautiful deep navy color. BR’s version has a couple differences such as a different material, but they’re rather minor and overall it’s still a gorgeous and budget-friendly alternative for the pricey Balmain blazer. Especially so if you take advantage of the 50% off sale promotion which is currently running at Banana Republic because it cuts down the price of this blazer down from $169.99 to $84.99 (that’s a saving of $2.300,01 compared to the real deal). Super steal deal alert!

Veronica Beard Seaside Double Breasted Blazer

Now this nautical blazer by Veronica Beard is probably the closest match to the real deal Balmain in terms of overall design, but it does cost almost $600, so it ranks as my current second favorite Balmain dupe. You would save a whopping $1.790 by opting for the Veronica Beard version though, so I still consider this blazer to be a pretty good bargain nonetheless!

Brooks Brothers Wool Double-Breasted Blazer

Another gorgeous blazer and pretty awsome Balmain alternative is this lovely navy blazer by Brooks Brothers. The key details are spot-on Balmain, Brooks Brothers is known for their high-quality tailoring and did I mention this beauty of a blazer is currently on sale for $274 (was $548). Sure, it’s not a steal at that price, but it might be worth the investment because a navy blazer is so versatile.

J.Crew Double-Breasted Blazer

Not available in navy, but these blazers by J.Crew also reminded me of the Balmain one above because the design and silhouette are so similar. If you’re all about the navy color, check out this other J.Crew blazer which I found at J.Crew Factory for $79 (sale price!).
