These sky high, sparkly Christian Louboutin Decorapump Strass Covered Platform Pumps are truly one of a kind. At first, the super high heel appears slightly awkward and almost makes the shoe appear semi-large, but on the foot it boasts a completely different style. This pump elongates the legs and really creates a thinning affect, improving a woman’s stature and posture. While each celebrity below may be wearing the same exact shoe, they are still able to incorporate their own take. So while this shoe is supremely edgy, I love that it can be molded for one’s own taste.

Chinese Laundry “Blaze of Glory” Suede Platform Pumps

$3.895 is simply too much money to spend on a pair of shoes. Albeit, the Louboutins are completely and utterly gorgeous, their price tag makes them unattainable. Contrary to that extremely pricey budget, these “Blaze of Glory” Suede Platform Pumps by Chinese Laundry are definitely more affordable, yet right on point with the design element supported by the designer pumps above. To begin with, these pumps are priced at $150. And if you decide to purchase these now, you can save an extra 10% and receive free shipping! Plus, they’re available in light pink suede.

Two Lips “Studlee” Platform Pumps

You know the saying “save the best for last” – and here we have one of the best prices for the Louboutin look-a-likes. Adorned with metal-toned embellishments and created with a towering heel, these “Studlee” Platform Pumps by Two Lips are a great steal. Priced at an affordable price of $74.99, you can mimic the designer style but for a much more accessible budget. If looking for a more bold style, be sure to check these out in turquoise and red faux suede.

I’ve heard a lot of good things about the newly re-launched brand Equipment. Their blouses and shirts are supposed to be top notch quality and they quickly gained a loyal celebrity following since their re-launch in 2010. Fashion insiders like Carine Roitfeld and Giovanna Battaglia are fans as well. While I can’t comment on the quality of Equipment clothing myself (yet!) and hence can’t say whether it’s worth the splurge, I sure can say that I absolutely love the look of this semi-sheer striped silk-chiffon shirt in cream and black! I mean it has stripes on it, and as you might already know that’s all it takes to get me swooning over something!

LC Lauren Conrad Striped Chiffon Blouse

Now look which celebrity socialite is taking inspiration from her own designer wardrobe for her budget-priced fashion line! When I saw this LC Lauren Conrad chiffon blouse I was instantly reminded of the Equipment striped shirt. And besides the slight variation in color and the crochet collar, I can’t really see any visual differences between these two (not talking about quality here!). Snap up this blouse for only $13.20 and get yourself the coral/white version, too, while you’re at it.

The Gucci Huston Mary Jane Plaform Suede Pumps are a fusion of the classic Mary Jane silhouette with a 1970s take, significant both to modern elegance and the disco fashion. The soaring heel draws attention as it contradicts with the mellowness and sweetness of a Mary Jane styled shoe. As these pumps come in several hues, I have to say that every color is uniquely presented bringing a sense of disco-like glamour to the table. I admire the the plum purple hue with the deep gold piping as it is sophisticated yet retro-chic. These pumps are essentially iconic and representative of 1970s trends which are resurfacing into the modern fashion world.

bebe “Nadia” Metallic Trim Velvet Sandals

The bebe Nadia Metallic Trim Velvet Sandal has a luxurious appeal by which it features a staggering platform heel and metallic toned velvet and piping. These sandals resemble the Gucci heels above, and really bring on the nostalgic Hollywood glamour guise that we all crave. I am fond of the peep-toe element as it compliments both cocktail attire and can be dressed down for more casual wear. These are way more affordable than the Gucci Huston Mary Jane Pumps, plus are available in dark red, black, and taupe.

Acne‘s Atacoma wedges have been lusted after and obsessed over countless times after Alexa Chung has sported a pair on her now cancelled MTV show. They sold out as soon as they hit the virtual shelves of several online shops, have been restocked again, then sold out again.

“Spring Breakers” star Vanessa Hudgens made an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in late March looking stunning in a yellow beaded pencil dress by Alice + Olivia. The actress completed her outfit with gold Jerome C. Rousseau high heels and matching gold jewelry. I just love this bright fitted dress on Vanessa! It really suits her caramel skin tone, don’t you agree? Yellow is such a great color for Vanessa, she definitely should wear it more often!
