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 less expensive Louboutin look-a-like in the meantime.

Kaitlyn Pan Pointed-Toe Stiletto High Heel Pumps

Update (07/13/2016): There’s also a fabulous So Kate dupe available by Kaitlyn Pan for $99 and which also comes in nude patent. The design is spot-on, it’s made of genuine leather and if you read the customer reviews for the brand’s other designer inspired shoes, you’ll know you’ve found yourself a good designer dupe with these Louboutin-like beauties. The only drawback (if you consider it to be one) is that the sole is pink instead of Louboutin’s signature red. But everything else looks exactly like Louboutin’s So Kate.

Steve Madden “PROTO” Pointy-Toe Pumps

Et voilà, check out “PROTO” by Steve Madden! Yes, I know it’s not a total spot-on dupe and that it’s not as delicate and immaculately curved as the real deal Louboutins, but “PROTO” is probably still the best shot you’ve got at “So Kate” on a budget. At least for now. $52.47 (sale price!) and you’re wearing Louboutin for less, girl! Available in various lovely colors and uppers: black, blush, pink, white, red, yellow and natural snake.

I don’t know how they do it, but Yves Saint Laurent makes some of the most iconic shoes I’ve ever seen. Especially their “Tribute” collection is a hit among celebrities, fashion connoisseurs and us totally obsessed shoe freaks. I’ve loved the Tribute sandals from the first moment I saw them, but never got the chance to go for the real deal or snap up one of the various knockoffs (check!) back then when they were considered the “It” shoe of the year. My favorite Tribute sandal was the purple suede version with gold trimming, but the black patent version is of course more versatile.

Wild Pair “Kisme” Platform Patent Leather Sandals

Update (11/22/2016): Check out these super affordable YSL Tribute look-alike heels by Wild Pair! Aren’t they amazing? I guess they’re more likely supposed to be dupes of Steve Madden’s “Kananda” heels rather than the original YSLs as the brand has several other Steve Madden dupes in their collection, but since Madden’s “Kananda” is a pretty good dupe of the Tribute sandals itself, we’re not going to be petty here. They’re available in red, black and nude faux patent leather, cost $39.99 retail, but you can currently get 30% off shoes at Target with promo code “SHOES“. This would lower the price of these beauties down to a steal-worthy $28. But you better hurry, the offer expires 11/23/2016 at 11:59 PM PT.

Office “Nostalgia” Platform Heels

Update (07/06/2016): Spotted yet another almost spot-on Yves Saint Laurent Tribute dupe at Office. Like Steve Madden’s “Kananda” version, this one too, is missing the t-strap on the front, but otherwise the design is so close to the real deal. Available in nude, red and black patent leather as well as gold or rosegold leather and black nubuck for affordable £65.

Fersengold “Paris” T-Strap Platform Sandals

Update (05/01/2016): Just stumbled upon these spot-on YSL Tribute look-alike heels by German shoe brand Fersengold which come in either nude or blue patent leather. I also like the Fendi influencels here with the gold f-letter plate on the platform. They’re not the budget-friendliest steal find at £175, but might be worth the investment if you’re looking for a high-quality YSL dupe.

Steve Madden “DAARLING” T-Strap Sandals

Update (03/28/2010): Check out Steve Madden‘s second take on the Tribute sandal. Available in black, nude & natural patent, denim and leopard.

I still prefer the first one, but this heel has some major advantages. It is a) not sold out, b) cheaper and c) way easier to walk in because of the lower heel (the platform helps, too).

Steve Madden T-Bar Platform Sandals

Update (12/04/2009): Woohoo! You lucky gals. ASOS is now selling the Steve Madden sandals at the amazing price of £32 at their online outlet store. That is 60% OFF the original retail price! I bought these babies full price six months ago there and they look absolutely fantastic in person. So worth the price.

YSL lovers, today’s your lucky day! These Steve Madden platform sandals have completely sold out everywhere else, but ASOS has still a few of these fabtastic heels in limited sizes available. Be quick to order because this is the final sale and probably also your last chance for a great YSL Tribute knockoff of such great quality. I love mine so much! They are absolutely amazing looking for knockoffs and while £80 were certainly not cheap, I haven’t put a second thought whether or not to buy them and ordered straight away after they added my size. My tip: if your feet are slightly wider than average I suggest you go at least half a size up so your toes won’t get squished.

If there’s one thing Stuart Weitzman is exceptionally good at, it’s boots, especially the sexy kind. A few years ago, we had celebs and bloggers going crazy for the widely copied 50/50 OTK boots and now the fashion crowd is lusting after the “Highland”, a super sexy over-the-knee suede pull-on boot which has a lacing detail in the back. And even though I feel like I’ve seen this boot on pretty much every stylish celebrity and fashion blogger by now, I’m still not fed up with it in the slightest way. I also can’t seem to pick a favorite color! The taupe version is so cool and subdued while the black version really pops against bare legs and turns up the sexiness factor by quite a few notches! But as gorgeous as these suede thigh high boots are, at $798 these beauties are way too expensive for me to splurge on the real deal!

ASOS Key To My Heart Lace Up Over the Knee Boots

Update (01/09/2016): Discovered these awesome faux suede Weitzman Highland look-alike boots at ASOS today. Too bad I spotted them so late, because they’re out of stock in almost all sizes. Apparently however, they do come back in stock in limited quantities occasionally, so a little cyberstalking migh help here. The taupe version is available here, but it’s currently pretty much sold out as well.

If you think of Salvatore Ferragamo shoes, the first one to spring to mind is probably the iconic “Varacj” pump – a one-inch heeled patent ballet-style bow-adorned shoe. This shoe was first introduced in 1978 by Fiamma Ferragamo, the daughter of Salvatore, and has gained a lot of recognition among celebrities like Princess Diana for example. “Varina” is a spin-off of Vara, a more casual and modern designed ballerina flat with a lovely grosgrain bow on the vamp, which has been around since 2007. I’m usually not a fan of ballet flats, but these are so gorgeous and the quality looks absolutely superb, don’t you agree? I’d so love to own these ($525 isn’t that expensive for a pair of made in Italy designer shoes nowadays). If only I had that kind of shopping budget.

Fashion magazines are consistently talking about the day clutch. While carrying all your essentials in a bag the size of a large envelope isn’t exactly feasible, how can you make a clutch work during the day? It’s easy, you just toss it in your larger work tote and then pull it out for lunch, a quick run to Starbucks, or keep it handy for an impromptu dinner after work. This particular style by Valentino is perfect. It has great proportion, construction and just enough edginess to make it less “boardroom” and more “downtown chic”. But although this particular clutch would get a lot of use, it may not be quite enough to justify the price. As always, we present you more accessible options. Check it out below!

GoJane Pyramid Stud Trim Clutch

Just as lovely, this version by GoJane is exactly the type of clutch you need for everyday and costs way less than the original designer inspiration. Place all your essentials inside and then place it in your larger tote to make it easier to pull out when you’re on the go. It will also keep everything organized and easier to spot inside your larger bag as well! Wear this clutch with everything; from your pencil skirt and blouse to your jeans on the weekend for brunch. The detachable strap is fantastic; and I’m sure you’ll find a dozen ways to wear your new bag! Want to add a little glam twist to your look? You can also get this style in peach or gold metallic faux leather.

Buffalo Stud Clutch Bag

Another great steal and also made of completely vegan leather is this cute look-a-like clutch by Buffalo. These are a bit more expensive than the previous style, but the hardware is very similar to the original. The wristlet detail is just fabulous because it helps keep your hands free when you need them most (perhaps you’re going out for cocktails or meeting friends at an after work networking event). I really like that you have the option of the taupe color as well because it’s perfect if you wear a lot of brown or prefer a lighter palette for your key wardrobe pieces.
