Real vs. Steal

For someone who has always loved the delicacy of high heels and feminine silhouettes when it comes to shoes, lately I’ve been finding myself strangely gravitating more and more to tougher, more masculine footwear for some reason. So much so that I recently decided to take the plunge and went on to buy my very first pair of black, Doc Martens-like lace-up combat boots a few weeks ago and I’ve been obsessed with them ever since! I wear them with black skinny jeans, ripped denim, a flowy knit dress, a cute A-line skirt, you name it; everything seems to kind of work with these boots that will toughen up any look in an instant with their rough and functional design. And if you’ve been following this blog for a while, you’ll know I have a soft spot for everything Alexander McQueen. So how could I not love these super badass silver studded metal cap-toe boots? They’re definitely not for the faint of heart and certainly won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but I guess this is one of the main reasons I find myself so drawn to them! These heavy boots look like they could easily be part of a funky steampunk cosplay costume. But in a good way! Now that we’ve established the fabulousness of these boots – have you seen that price tag? $1.995! One grand per foot! Sadly, this kind of pricing doesn’t exactly fall into my personal shoe shopping bracket.

Jeffrey Campbell “Gustine” Studded Cap-Toe Boots

Jeffrey Campbell to the rescue! Now look at these stud-adorned combat lace-up boots here! Aren’t they just so crazy cool? I love the oversized buckles! They’re not identical dupes of the McQueen boots above, but certainly similar enough to double as a great, look for less designer alternative if you can’t afford or simply don’t want to spend 2k on a pair of boots. These darling here might not be a steal at $179.95, but they are over 90% cheaper than the real deal which – I would say – you could consider a steal deal in comparison! Some sizes are already sold out though, so you better be fast if you want to get ahold of these stylish studded biker boots!

I admit I wasn’t too familiar with Barcelona-based bag brand M2Malletier before writing this post, but when I read up the brand’s history, it instantly reminded me of Mansur Gavriel because both brands were founded in 2012 by a female design duo (in this case Melissa Losada and Marcela Velez) and both brands are best known for their minimalistic designs. Recognizing an M2Malletier bag shouldn’t be too hard as they all have that signature metal bar top handle the brand is so famous for. M2Malletier key design elements include rectangular shapes and clean lines which supposedly is due to the dominant influence of architecture, the most important source of inspiration for the designer duo. And even though M2Malletier bags aren’t quite as hyped as Mansur Gavriel’s, it’s still quite hard to get your hands on the best-selling designs such as this handmade “Fleur Du Mal” shoulder bag. The price of $1.560 isn’t really helping either, of course.

Forever 21 Faux Leather Crossbody

I didn’t really expect Forever 21 to come out with an M2Malletier dupe anytime soon as I assumed the metal bar top handle detail would be way too costly to produce to fit into the brand’s narrow price range. Apparently, I was wrong. Because just look at this budget-friendly beauty of a bag! A spot-on “Fleur Du Mal” dupe for under $25! A quick reminder: the real deal comes in at $1.560. Now that’s what I call a steal deal!

Writing up a post about these “Ceinture” buckled booties by Balenciaga is a tough one for me. Why? Well, mainly because I don’t find myself very attracted to this type of masculine biker boots. Nor am I tall or skinny enough to pull off such a bulky boot. However, since these boots have been making the rounds on a number of style blogs and celebs lately, here you go with a couple of budget-friendly alternatives.

Real vs. Steal – Céline Knot Open Bracelet

by Irina on September 18, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on September 18, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

It’s been a while since we last featured a jewelry piece by Céline on this blog, so here you go: Céline’s knot bracelet which is available in various colors and sizes has made quite the round in the fashion blogosphere lately. The design strongly reminds me of Tiffany’s Love Knot Bangle with the biggest difference being that Céline’s version is left open in the back. I’m not sure what the retail price is for this bracelet, but pre-owned pieces start at approximately $400 which I think is quite the hefty price for a gold-plated brass bangle.

Chances are you’re already pretty familiar with these double-strapped ribbon tie ballerina flats by Miu Miu because these ballerinas are the “It shoe” of the summer and the latest shoe trend to take over our fashion feeds. As you can see below some of our favorite bloggers and IGers have already been prancing the streets in those cute and quirky ballet flats channeling their inner prima ballerina. I must admit I haven’t been actively following Miu Miu’s collections for a while now, but these shoes made me fall in love with Miuccia Prada’s younger fashion line all over again. I just love how the belted straps toughen up the otherwise overly sweet ballerina design thus giving them an edgy and modern vibe while at the same time still maintaining a classic and feminine look. Also, how cool is the idea of wearing them with mismatched ribbon laces? Pure genius and so refreshingly new and creative! Naturally, we’ve gotten quite a few requests to find budget-friendly alternatives for these much sought after Miu Miu flats because a) these babies cost a whopping $620 now: $670 and b) the popular versions like the nude one for example are basically sold out everywhere anyway. Ergo: challenge accepted!

Romwe Almond Toe Bow Decorated Lace-Up Flats

My current favorite Miu Miu dupe are these adorable lace-up flats I found at Romwe because they are spot-on compared to the real deal and also super budget-friendly with a price of just $29.99. They come in black, nude and baby pink PU leather and most sizes are still available (yay!), so get them while they’re still in stock!

Steve Madden “Meow” Ribbon Tie Ballerina Flats

Last but not least are these lace-up flats by Steve Madden. They don’t have the buckled front straps like the real deal and thus are more of an “inspired by Miu Miu“-kind, but they do come with two sets of interchangeable ribbon laces, so the overall look is still very much Miu Miu without them being a blatant copy. Also how buttery soft does the blush leather look like here? Amazing for $35.95 (sale price!), no? Other available color options include black and silver metallic.
