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.

Update (09/23/2015): Although not exactly a steal at $215, these strappy stiletto heels by Raye are still a fabulous and spot-on look for less alternative to the Gianvito Rossi pumps above.

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.

Milanoo Pointy-Toe Stiletto Pumps

If you don’t want to spend quite as much or if your size is simply sold out for the Gianvito Rossi dupe above, then take a look at this strappy heel I discovered at Milanoo. 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!

Sole Society “Anouk” T-Strap Leather Pumps

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?

Valentino‘s “Rockstud” collection has not only been exhibited in exquisite footwear but also in beautiful and edgy handbags such as this one pictured here. It is undeniable that the staple studs in part make this flap clutch bag, in addition to the chic silhouette. Priced at a mere $1.795, it is pretty much inaccessible to everyone though, thus we have a great steal below. I have to say that Fan Bingbing’s all-red ensemble exudes luxury with a hint of romanticism and this red Valentino clutch really brings every aspect of her outfit together flawlessly.

Update (10/29/2015): Discovered another fabulous Valentino Rockstud real leather clutch dupe at Amazon today. Check out these studded flap clutches by Lush Bags. These, too, are rather on the pricey side, but it’s genuine leather after all and the quality seems to be decent as well.

Steve Madden “BCRSBDY” Studded Clutch

Steve Madden has cultivated a very similar look-a-like clutch at an affordable price of $58. It has a very similar design, featuring stud embellishments on the outer border of this “BCRSBDY” Studded Clutch. The only difference between the Valentino original and its more budget-friendly counterpart is that the mini handle in the middle doesn’t have any sort of ornamentation, but that is a minimal detail. This clutch also has a long strap for versatile wearing abilities. Additionally, be sure to use the promo code above for maximum savings!

An original Rick Owens classic leather jacket is one of the few designer items I would gladly splurge on if I had 2,5k to spare. I especially love this sleek biker jacket below with its elegantly draped collar and ribbed wool sleeves; the shape is timeless and flattering and the leather looks incredibly soft, doesn’t it? A cool and edgy leather jacket like this one is a closet staple and should be hanging in every woman’s wardrobe.

This faux leather jacket by Jennifer Lopez surely can’t compete with an original Rick Owens jacket, but if you’re looking for a good-looking and affordable leather jacket, this one has obviously quite a few Rick Owens inspired elements and the price of $50.40 ain’t too bad as well! Also available in white and plus sizes.

We’ve featured quite a number of Christian Louboutin shoes here on InTheirCloset and I think that’s because, other than being extremely popular with our readers, they are also what I would classify as “classic”. Louboutin pumps range from demure to over the top but almost all of them feel timeless. CL’s “Claudia” ankle-strap sandals are no exception. They are simply a new take on a tried and true shoe. Look how beloved these are by hollywood starlets and Playboy bunnies alike. You’d probably have to be either or both to swing that price tag though.

Thank you, Aldo, for bringing us a shoe both lovely and affordable. No, my friends, you will not be able to show off that red sole, but if it’s class you’re looking for, look no further. Aldo’s “Brodigan” pump is the versatile, cocktail pump you’ve been looking for minus the hefty price tag. *Ding Ding*. We have a winner! Also available in a great nude color.
