So how HUGE was Balmain x H&M, huh? The highly anticipated designer collaboration went live online on November 5th at 8 am EST and it was only a matter of an hour until almost every item of the collection was sold out; all despite the hefty price tags (with prices set around $500-$700 for key pieces, the most expensive item peaking at $699), thus making Balmain x H&M’s collection the company’s most successful designer collaboration yet. The website continued to crash over the visitor overload all morning while eager shoppers in Seoul queued up in front of H&M stores over a week before the official collection launch. The hype surrounding this collaboration has certainly caught on to the masses and it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the collection is now selling for vastly inflated prices on eBay where some pieces are priced at twice their retail value. No word from H&M yet whether they are going to restock the highly successful collection. One of my favorite pieces from the Balmain x H&M collaboration is this gold and white embroidered black velvet mini dress. I love that it doesn’t look watered down and could easily be mistaken for a design from Balmain’s mainline collection. Now would I spend $549 on such a statement dress? Maybe. But due to the hype, I don’t even have to ask myself this question because just like all the other pieces, this beautiful frock is sold out.

Missord Embellished Mini Dress

Update (12/29/2016): Stumbled upon another Balmain inspired embellished mini dress by Missord which can be yours for under $30. The customer reviews don’t look too bad either.

bebe Bead & Sequin Crepe Dress

If you don’t want to pay the ridiculously inflated eBay prices and can’t wait a few more months for other fast fashion companies to catch on to this hype to come up with their own inspired Balmain x H&M; look-alikes (c’mon, Forever 21!), I suggest you take a look at this beautiful beaded mini dress by bebe. I know this isn’t a spot-on dupe for the dress above and it certainly isn’t a steal at $299, but the Balmain x H&M inspiration is clearly visible on this frock in my opinion. Plus, unlike the real deal, this dress is readily available for you to buy with all sizes still in stock and all. So you can either keep on stalking eBay waiting for a miracle to happen or you can snap up this dress instead and get your own kind of Balmain party going.

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.

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.

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

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.

Real vs. Steal – Valentino Rockstud Leather Clutch

by Juliana on September 18, 2016

Update: This post has been updated on September 18, 2016. Scroll down to see the new add.

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.
