Ever have those days when you’re feeling blue and need a serious lift? Well, metaphorically speaking these Platform Bow Sandals by Giuseppe Zanotti may just be your go-to shoe. First off, a) they are a vibrant blue color, b) they have a soaring heel and c) they’re gorgeous! Though one might possibly break an ankle trying to walk in them, the mega-boost of height is insured. The bow and ankle strap add femininity and vintage-like appearance which is a contributing factor to the bold exterior. As usual, the price is severely expensive, but that indicates the steal is awaiting you below!

Liliana Paulette-3 Ankle Strap Sandals

UPDATE (06/15/2012): Found a second Zanotti look-a-like. These high heel sandals by Liliana have a satin-like upper instead of suede like the originals, but otherwise they’re almost spot-on and come with a very budget-friendly price tag of less than $40!

Luichiny “Rest Up” Bow Platform Sandals

Luichiny seals the deal for me. Just look, the difference is barely discernible unless you are a guru at spotting the “imitation” shoe. The color is just as vibrant, the bow is slightly smaller, and the ankle strap seems to be in place. The most important factor is that the grand heel is still a focal point, which I absolutely adore. Available in red, pink, black, and cream faux suede, there is a variety of colors to choose from.

Got a little bit of a rocker-girl inside but don’t know how to express it? Try wearing these Balenciaga sandals and you’ll exude just enough edge while maintaining a polished look. Looking for the best way to pull them off? If you have long legs, try a black pencil skirt with a slightly longer hem in back and if you’re petite or curvy, wear some black leggings like Rihanna (below) with an off-the-shoulder knit dress. But the most important accessory is confidence, and to rock these – you gotta show it. While these shoes are amazing, if they don’t fit your budget, scroll down cause the steal we found is a ringer for the original.

Strategia “Alicia” Open Toe Slingbacks

Nope, you’re not seeing double. This pair by Strategia is actually quite a bit less than the Balenciagas above. What’s keeping you from making them yours? These architectural sandals will look artsy and modern with some red nail polish or go mysterious with a darker one. Either way, just let your shoes make the introduction and you can take over from there.

The combination of black and gold is becoming a staple for fall and winter trends, as the contrast perfectly complements one another. Indeed, these Giuseppe Zanotti I27115 Fold-Over Ankle Zip Boots are one of the many examples of this booming trend. Though the price is quite steep at $995, Zanotti always incorporates his beautiful craftsmanship and trendy outlook in his designs, as you can see pictured below. Although the budget on these impeccable ankle boots is far out of my reach, we have a very similar budget-conscious version below!

Can we all agree that Prada has created the perfect nude barely-there strappy sandal here? I absolutely love this minimalistic high heel. The stiletto and the thin straps look incredibly sexy because they expose large parts of your foot (be sure to have a pedicure before wearing such baring heels) and the shoe itself is a real wardrobe joker as it can be worn with anything in your wardrobe from a dressy dress to a casual jeans. Well, that is as long as you have $690 to spend on them.

So while I usually love anthing Camilla Skovgaard, these “Saw Tooth” wedge ankle boots aren’t exactly my cup of tea. I’d never wear these booties with a bare leg as seen on Whitney Port because my legs would look hoof-like and stumpy. But with a pair of black opaque tights I think these are quite rockable. However, laying down more than $500 for these booties? Thank you, but no thank you.
