We’re slowly approaching the month of May, so I think it’s time we start putting our thoughts to what we’re going to wear on our feet during summer. One of my personal summer shoe favorites: wedges, of course! They can be chic, comfortable and they add height without killing your feet. These studded wedge sandals by famed French shoemaster, Monsieur Christian Louboutin, is absolute wedge perfection! And the nude color will elongate your legs even further. Too bad there’s a $795 price tag between me and my new perfect summer shoe match though!

I’m such a fan of Saint Laurent‘s classic shoe line, but why does it have to be so darn expensive? Spending $685 on a pair of simple black pumps? Not in my budget, unfortunately.

Steven by Steve Madden “BLADEE” Pointed-Toe Pumps

Luckily, we have Steve Madden keeping an eye out for the hottest designer shoe trends. These Steven by Steve Madden pointed-toe pumps are a fab alternative if you’re looking for a budget-friendly version of the Saint Laurent Thorn heels above. The only noticeable difference? Madden’s heels have a zipper in the back.

When I first saw the “Bellantomod” Lace-Up Back Open-Toe Booties by Manolo Blahnik, I couldn’t really believe that these are supposed to be Manolos because the designer usually goes for a more elegant and timeless style direction. This high heel though screamed Tom Ford or Gucci to me. It’s a very sexy and stylish shoe; I love the lacing detail in the open back of this so-called “shootie”. As you can see from the pictures below, Vicky B. is also a fan. And who can blame her? However, not everyone of us has VB’s shopping budget, so we came up with a list of possible Manolo alternatives for you.

bebe “Matison” Lace-Up Mule Heels

Et voilà, bebe to the rescue! Being a pretty much spot-on dupe of the Manolos, the “Matison” is just as sexy as the real deal and with a price tag of $139, you won’t have to break the bank in order to afford it. But you better be fast because some sizes are beginning to sell out already.

Chinese Laundry “Jinxy” High Heel Booties

Another budget-friendly alternative and currently on sale, too, are these stylish heels from Chinese Laundry. They’re not a 1:1 dupe or anything, but they’ll still give you the same sexy look. Make sure to check out the insanely gorgeous cobalt blue suede version which is my absolute favorite!

And, of course, the stylish Australians strike once again! Tony Bianco‘s “Azura” heels will give you the coveted Manolo Blahnik look for less; for $149.95 AUD to be exact. And what can I say? I’m in love.

‘Tis the season to get your spike on! From spiked heels to spiked drinks – I am so down! Which is why this Pigalle “Loubie” should totally be in my stocking. But at over $1.000 and the fact that it’s sold out – ol’ St. Nick won’t be dropping these babies off anytime soon! No worries though, all my naughty girls; we found a nice lil’ knockoff below.

Studio TMLS “Bahia” Studded Pumps

See… naughty girls need love, too. And these pretty pumps as well! “Bahia” by Studio TMLS is not as spiked or as high as the Pigalle, but for about roughly 10% of the original cost, I think we can deal with these few exceptions. But not spiking my drink with enough of the good stuff is a whole other story. 😉

I am a huge fan of Jennifer Aniston‘s style. She delicately walks the edges of trends while always maintaining a classic style that I’m pretty sure we’ll never look back on, thinking “God, WHAT was she wearing?” Last summer Jen started rocking a pair of Stuart Weitzman espadrilles that had me drooling. Clearly I wasn’t the only fan though; the Alex Espadrille Wedges flew off the shelves and were forever more impossible to find. They’re back now and available on several e-retailer sites and I would probably kill to own a pair. Seriously, I recommend you not being around me right now. Sadly these are just out of my price range.

Update (05/22/2011): The “Alex” knockoff wave just won’t stop! I keep finding new Alex look-a-likes day in, day out. But these here by Sacred Heart are actually really, really amazing. They are soooo spot-on and, OMG!, look at the price. $49.99 – this deserves an award or something (still can’t loose the feeling these are just rebranded, look at N.Y.L.A.’s Colby, Black Rooster’s Colb & Bakers’ “Midtown”, they all look completely identical).
