Over the years I have fallen in love with so many Louboutins that I always thought: “Well, now he has outdone himself! I couldn’t love a shoe more!” – But then this shoe came along. The “Impera” – a truly imperial lasercut lace-up stiletto pump. So how divine could a shoe be? And even though it’s usually very hard for me to love a white heel, this one I absolutely ADORE! In both white and black leather. Just look how gorgeous these shoes look on the celebs! I’m especially in love with how Alessandra Ambrosio has worn her Loubies. Too bad they are a) sold out and b) totally out of my budget.

These heels by Jessica Buurman don’t quite live up to the quality of the Louboutins above, but for 1/10 of the price they do come pretty close, don’t you agree? They’re currently on pre-order and I am now contemplating which color to get them in. Any advice from our fabulous readers?

Oh my, it’s been a while, huh? So sorry we’ve been MIA for the last couple of weeks, but offline life has kept us very busy. However, we’re almost fully back now and should return to our regular posting schedule next week at the latest. In the meantime, have some fun with these stunners from Monsieur Christian Louboutin. I know I’ve said it like a hundred times before already, but I think I have found THE shoe. As soon as I laid my eyes on Louboutin’s “So Kate” stiletto heels I was captivated, it has the most perfect arch ever, doesn’t it? And while I would probably opt for the classic black patent, this snakeskin stripe print version is so much more fun, don’t you agree? Only problem? The price tag, obviously. $1.095 – that would pay quite a few bills for this girl here!

Lust for Life “Krush” Striped Stiletto Pumps

While we couldn’t find an exact match for the orange version, we managed to dig out these fabulous stiletto pumps by Lust for Life which you might remember have also come up with a stunning pair of Tom Ford OTK boot dupes. As much as I love the real Loubis, the cobalt blue color (one of my absolute faves!) and the much nicer price tag of $129.99 makes this an easy choice for me. What about you? Real or steal, which one do you prefer?

The curved heel has been making its appearance quite often among stylish footwear lately, adding a futuristic yet minimalistic flair. Not to spare, Maison Martin Margiela brings us a common yet inspiring open toed bootie with a twist. His take on such a popular silhouette makes this design so easy to wear; the versatility goes on without an end just like the price tag. Beautiful, yes, but also extremely pricey. That’s why we have a steal below that is just as gorgeous as it is affordable!

Besides the fact that they are an amazing designer look-a-like, they are also accessible to the masses. With international shipping for an extra fee, they can easily reach any destination.

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!

UPDATE (08/15/2013): Whoa, look at this fab Valentino dupe by MICHAEL Michael Kors! Totally looks like the high-end designer clutch, but actually costs only $108! I also love the Saffiano leather which is usually mainly used for and most known because of Prada’s famous Saffiano bags. Available in a lot of different colors like tan, taupe, turquoise, red and purple!

GoJane Pyramid Stud Trim Clutch

HOT DEAL: Use promo code “GJSHIP60” to get free shipping on your $60+ order!

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.

Fellow vegans and vegetarians unite! Stella McCartney has created an all vegan faux leather handbag to mimic the lavish style, without resorting to animals to achieve a luxurious appeal. Not only is Stella McCartney a lifelong devotee to vegetarianism, she has also an impeccable tailoring and wonderful taste to fulfill the desirable expensive, leather look. This Shaggy Deer Falabella Fold Over Clutch is bold and has a super edgy look and ultimately can be the key accessory to any outfit. As much as I would love to own any piece from her vegan collection someday, especially this one, I can’t afford to pay such a grand price. However, there is no reason to fret since we have such beautiful and affordable alternatives below!

Latico “Crawford” Clutch

There is no reason we shouldn’t indulge in the Stella McCartney style, especially when the price tag is less than 13% (sale price!) of the real deal’s sale price. This “Crawford” Clutch by Latico is certainly more affordable, yet it looks just as expensive. And though the silhouette and structure of this clutch is minimal the overall result is maximum impact. The chain embellishments are edgy but chic at the same time and for utmost versatility one can wear it with a drop-in chained strap or simply as a clutch. Additionally, this clutch comes in an array of colors such as red, taupe, metallic white and mocha leather.

Traffic People “Emily” Chain Shoulder Bag

A favorite steal of mine is this “Emily” Chain Shoulder Bag by Traffic People. It is currently on sale for £25.68, but still pertains and upholds to the appearance of the Falabella Fold Over Clutch. Here it is pictured in the black color; however, the navy blue is just as amazing! It is not only efficient in functionality, but also the best priced look-a-like alternative. For extra savings, one day shipping is free if you are located anywhere in the UK or EU. Although international shipping is available, the downside is that shipping prices become a bit steep (£20 flat fee per delivery for all non-EU countries).
