Christian Louboutin makes some of the finest shoes in the world. Louboutins are a celebrity’s staple buys and no red carpet would be complete without at least one pair of the red-soled high heels. Louboutin’s “Pigalle” pump is timeless with its classic and sleek design. It’s probably Louboutin’s bestselling and most famous shoe ever. Not to mention expensive.

The Highest Heel “Hottie” Pumps

How great is this find? I recently stumbled upon these Louboutin knockoffs and was astounded by how similar to the originals they are. Just look at the extreme high heel or the pointed toe, it looks just like the real deal. And the best thing: they are on sale right now. But you better hurry and order fast as I’m sure they will sell out quickly.

Let’s talk about wedges for a moment. Just how good are they? I mean, you can either eat or wear them. Pure genius! ;-) All (stale) jokes aside though, wedges are definitely a girl’s best friend. They are the best compromise between extra height and comfort. These slingback espadrille wedges by Céline are admittedly cute, but they don’t really make me want to spend almost $500 on them.

Even though I’m still missing the “Yves” in Saint Laurent, I must admit that Hedi Slimane is doing a remarkable job on revamping the (Y)SL brand. I’m a great fan of the new shoes and bags line in particular. There are so many elegant and timeless pieces to choose from! I first have seen these minimalistic ankle strap heels shown below on Karla’s blog and immediately fell in love with them as they match my vision of “the” perfect ankle strap high heel sandal! If only they’d match my shopping budget as well…

Jeffrey Campbell “Strides” Ankle Strap High Heel Sandals

UPDATE (02/28/2015): Stumbled upon this great Saint Laurent Jane alternative by Jeffrey Campbell. JC’s version has a slightly higher platform, but otherwise the design is almost the same. Also available in nude/ivory leatherls

Topshop UNIQUE Hi Strappy Sandals

While browsing through Topshop‘s newest arrivals today, I spotted this little fella here and was instantly reminded of the Saint Laurent Jane heels. Although the ankle strap is significantly wider than on the SL original and the price tag at $230 not exactly steal-worthy, I still think these’d be a great buy if you’re looking for a budget-friendl(y)ier Saint Laurent alternative because the overall look of these Topshop heels is still very, very similar to the designer version. Also in available in whitels, by the way.

Real vs. Steal – Anine Bing Studded Boots

by Irina on February 24, 2015

I feel like Anine Bing‘s microstud ankle boots are the official successors of Chloé’s highly popular Susan boots. The distinctive stud styling and the long pointed-toe make them instantly stand out and these boots quickly gained momentum in the fashion world and were a regular shoe staple among all the biggest fashion bloggers. I’m not quite sure where the brand came from all of a sudden, but I’ll definitely keep Anine Bing on my fashion radar.
