The wedge is such a fabulous invention. Elongates the legs? Check. Adds height? Check. Looks great with dresses, pants, skirts and shorts? Check. The only thing that would make them absolutely perfect is if they didn’t hurt the feet. Oh wait, they don’t! I could spend hours comfortably walking in so many of my wedges, which makes me wish they went with every ensemble. These Miu Miu ones would make a quick and smooth transition into my wardrobe, except for the fact that they’re sold out. Well, I supposed I can’t have it all.

We do get a few reader requests per day and while we’re not always able to find a great alternative right away, we store those reader requests in our archives and keep coming back to them to make sure we do our best to help our readers find something within their budget. Take this request by Kimberly from March 2010 for example where she asked us to help her find a cheaper alternative for a pair of Pierre Hardy booties.:

I just saw these boots at Barneys New York. They are a little out of my budget at $1.000. Anything similar? I love the style and cut! Thanks!

Chinese Laundry “Hopscotch” Slingback Sandals

It might has taken us 9 months to find a proper alternative, but these slingback sandals by Chinese Laundry sure were worth the wait, weren’t they? They are virtually identical if compared to the Pierre Hardy originals, but cost only a fraction of the price. Available in cognac and black. Hope we could help you out, Kimberly! 🙂

If there’s one thing I admire about Mary-Kate Olsen style it’s her ability to mix and match jewelry. It always seems like she just threw on every item from jer jewelry box (or drawer probably), but it still looks effortlessly chic on her. Whenever I try to do the same I just look like a desperate old lady trying to show off her cheap costume jewelry. Sigh! I’ll just keep trying I guess. I’d love to have this feather ring from the Olsen’s Elizabeth and James line to experiment with. It’s a great statement piece and I’m a BIG fan of double rings.

ASOS Double Finger Metal Feather Ring

Apart from the price and the fact that this ASOS double ring comes only in gold, do you see any other differences? I don’t and I have developed quite the eagly eye. They look like twin except the ASOS ring costs less than 1/10 of the original’s price.

Where’s the party at? Well, wherever you choose to wear these hot Brian Atwood pumps! But before I start to bust a move, I have to clear up two things: I am pissed and confused! Pissed at the fact that I passed on adding these riveting pumps to my site’s inventory! Confused by the fact that I rarely see Jessica Simpson on the red carpet or out and about EVER in her own beautiful shoe collection! And yet her she is, in this gorg Brian Atwood pump; slapping down a cool $1500 before this baby sold out!

I’ve always admired these buckled Chloé biker boots from afar, but couldn’t help but wonder how normal women are supposed to pull off such mid-calf boots without looking stumpy. There’s no way I could rock these with bare legs as Mischa and Miley below, but I figured with black tights and a pair of black skinnies I could totally make these boots work for me. Too bad they cost $1.175.

Yoki “Miranda” Buckle Boots

UPDATE (09/05/2010): After more than 9 months I found yet another Chloé buckle boot alternative by Yoki. This steal version has gold hardware instead of silver, but everything is almost identical. At $40 you can’t complain! Available in black or brown.

Rosegold “Walt” Mid-Calf Moto Buckled Boots

These almost identical knockoffs by Rosegold are far from being a steal at $325, but if you die to rock the Chloé biker boot style I thought you’d be happy to find such a close match which cost 75% less than the originals.
