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?

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.

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.

The minute I first laid my eyes on Gucci‘s “Beverly” pumps, I was instantly obsessed! I’m so in love with its sexy-meets-retro look. The thin t-strap is giving these shoes a feminine and delicate vintage look while the patent leather adds some modern oomph to the mix. And while they are not terribly expensive for a pair of designer heels, they’re still too expensive for me. Boohoo!

While recently browsing through the new arrivals of Sole Society, I happened to stumble upon these lovely t-strap heels which reminded me of the Gucci heels above. They are not a perfect dupe or anything and I wish they’d come in patent leather, but the look is still very similar to Gucci, don’t you agree?
