A simple summertime wedge is sometimes all a girl needs to be happy. Now what’s shocking is that this simple wedge is by Christian Louboutin – the Liberace of shoemakers! No crazy 7 inch wedge. No crazy accouterments. Just a nice pinkish/mauve patent leather shoe. If only one could “simply” find $595 to pay for this much simplicity. But oh well, how do the French say – c’est la vie!

Steve Madden “WISSPER” Slingback Wedge Sandals

Now let me introduce you to the Robin Hood of the shoe world, Mr. Steve Madden. Bringing (and copying) designer heels for less and giving them to the poor (yet oh-so-fab) people! Once again, he doesn’t disappoint with his “WISSPER” slingback wedge. The only truly detectable difference is the thicker slingback strap and buckle. Other than that, for $68.07 (sale price!) this is a great steal. Available in black, teal, fuchsia and white patent as well as black suede, natural linen, navy fabric and leopard.

Got a little bit of a rocker-girl inside but don’t know how to express it? Try wearing these Balenciaga sandals and you’ll exude just enough edge while maintaining a polished look. Looking for the best way to pull them off? If you have long legs, try a black pencil skirt with a slightly longer hem in back and if you’re petite or curvy, wear some black leggings like Rihanna (below) with an off-the-shoulder knit dress. But the most important accessory is confidence, and to rock these – you gotta show it. While these shoes are amazing, if they don’t fit your budget, scroll down cause the steal we found is a ringer for the original.

Strategia “Alicia” Open Toe Slingbacks

Nope, you’re not seeing double. This pair by Strategia is actually quite a bit less than the Balenciagas above. What’s keeping you from making them yours? These architectural sandals will look artsy and modern with some red nail polish or go mysterious with a darker one. Either way, just let your shoes make the introduction and you can take over from there.

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.

So I know I already raved quite a bit about Rag & Bone‘s Classic Newbury Booties (last time here), but a few days ago I discoreved this lustworthy burgundy suede version and have been obsessed with these classic and minimalistic ankle boots ever since! So much so that I am seriously contemplating biting the bullet and actually get the real deal! I know I’d get a lot of wear out of these because I am weirdly attracted to ankle boots lately and wear them almost daily. Decisions, decisions.

As a shoe, these E10134 Chiffon-Bow Sandals are edgy, chic and seem to look good with just about everything. Giuseppe Zanotti has yet to disappoint, and well – these sandals are just another beautiful addition to his ever-growing body of work. Featuring a chiffon bow at the ankle, these shoes seem to manage to spice up any outfit, although the actual design itself is on the minimal side. The price of $850, on the other hand, is not so simple. Hence, we have a beautiful alternative for you!

Paris Hilton “Selene” Chiffon-Bow Sandals

Although in the past I would have never really considered Paris Hilton as a designer of footwear, or really any garments, I think I have been transformed. After browsing her past and recent footwear collection, I really did like many of the shoes, and most importantly they are on the affordable side. These “Selene” Chiffon-Bow Sandals perfectly prove my point stated above. They are chic, elegant, and super similar to the designer version without stretching one’s budget. Also, is it possible that these “Selene” sandals might just be a reference to Selena Gomez who also wore these shoes?
