Red Carpet

I think I must have already mentioned at least a thousand times how much I adore the feminine creations of Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana. And it seems Poppy Delevingne is also a fan because she took to the red carpet last week looking like straight out of a fairy tale wearing a gorgeous floral Dolce & Gabbana brocade mini dress, red Aquazzura pumps and a Jennifer Behr floral headband. I loved Poppy’s romantic look so much, I simply had to recreate her premiere outfit on a more budget-friendly level. How do you like it?

Why is it that so many people imagine themselves to be Cleopatra reincarnated? I’m thinking it’s because of the stylish clothes, hip make-up and the unmatched beauty and brains, of course. So for all you modern day, wanna be Roman-Egyptian empresses, these lovely gold sandals by Jimmy Choo clearly capture the mood of 50 B.C. perfectly! And for $850, they’ll give your wallet something to “chew” on. Well… more like taking a huge bite out of your wallet – ouch!

A few months ago we received a reader request from Maggie who asked:

Any idea where a sista can find some leather strap shoes like these that AREN’T $1.000?!

The shoe Maggie was talking about was a strappy stiletto pump by Gianvito Rossi which has been on my personal wish list as well after I first spotted it on personal style blogger at large, Blair Eadie from Atlantic-Pacific. It’s a truly gorgeous shoe, but shelling out that kind of money is simply not an option for me and Maggie (and probably you as well). So the hunt for Gianvito Rossi Carey dupes ensued.

River Island Black Leather Strappy Pumps

Et voilà, River Island comes to our rescue! Their strappy black leather pump may not be an identical match, but for $130, it’s the closest you can get to Gianvito Rossi’s Carey heel at the moment. A few sizes are already sold out (including mine, boohoo!), so if you’re lusting after this style and yours is still available, I wouldn’t wait too long to order.

Milanoo Pointy-Toe Stiletto Pumps

If you don’t want to spend quite as much or if your size is simply sold out for the Gianvito Rossi dupe above, then take a look at this strappy heel I discovered at Milanoo. The design isn’t quite as sharp and polished compared to the original, but the overall look still screams Gianvito Rossi Carey and the price of $56.99 is pretty neat, too.

Dear “Pigalle“, I know you won’t like this, but there’s a new queen in town, her name is “So Kate” aka shoe perfection and she is probably Louboutin‘s hottest and most coveted style at the moment. One look at her and you will instantly understand why. The shiny black leather, the thinning stiletto heel, the perfectly shaped arch – everything about this shoe is just perfect! Plus, while the price of $675 sure isn’t exactly a bargain, compared to what other Louboutin styles are usually retailing for, these here are on the rather budget-friendlier side of the designer shoe price range. Which is also probably the reason why “So Kate” is constantly on the verge of selling out at nearly every e-tailer. Anyway, this beauty of a high heel has definitely taken the #1 spot on my current shoe wish list and until I have saved up the neccessary $675 to bring them home, I’ll settle for a more less expensive Louboutin look-a-like in the meantime.

Shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti is a well-known man on this blog because a) his shoes are absolutely loved by celebrities and b) because his shoes are often copied. And while it’s not cool to copy, I really can’t blame the copycats because shoes as fabulous as these scalloped suede lace-up sandals need to be brought at more affordable price points. At least that’s how I think. My obsession for these Zanotti heels started when I first saw Aimee Song from Song of Style rocking these high-heeled beauties in various of her outfits. I just love the delicate nature of these! They’re incredibly sexy yet still elude a sense of romance. But here’s the deal-breaker: they cost a whopping $1.095 and are pretty much sold out everywhere.
