I usually don’t deem flip flops dressy or fashionable, but as so often Chanel once again proves me wrong. How lovely do these PVC thong sandals look? I really like the classic color combo of black and ivory here and also the Camellia flower embellishment – Coco Chanel’s signature flower – which is such a nice way to dress up a pair of plain ole’ flip flops, don’t you agree? And how cute does the CC logo link look? Such a sweet little detail to add! I’m not sure how much these flip flops retail for, but I think it’s something around $550-$600. For a pair of PVC shoes! Yeah. Chanel ain’t for penny pinchers, people!

Mel by Melissa Honey III Flip Flops

Update (03/19/2014): Found another set of flower-embellished flip flops that reminded me of the Chanel version above. This one’s by Mel by Melissa, it comes in various color combinations and retails for $24.99 (sale price!).

Capelli Flower-Embellished Flip Flops

Nine West “Frizzell” Flower Flip Flops

Update (02/17/2014): The flower on these Nine West flip flops might not look quite as beautiful and delicate as on the Chanel ones, but they’re also only $49 and come in lovely colors such as white, yellow, coral and light blue.

Target Jelly Flower Flip Flops

Obviously, most of us can’t or won’t spend that kind of money on a pair of jelly shoes, but how about $13? Well, that’s more like it, right? Check out these thong sandals by Target which look very similar to Chanel’s Camellia flip flops. Of course, they are missing Chanel’s superb quality (and the cute gold CC-logo), but for $12.99 they’re a fab alternative to the pricey Chanel version.

Nicholas Kirkwood and his shoes haven’t been featured all too often on this blog yet which is a shame because his shoes are fabulous! Case in point: these vividly indigo colored suede lace-up booties which have delicate laser-cut circle panels cut out on the front. And even though these beautiful heels have already been greatly discounted from $950 to $380 (that’s a whopping 60% off!), it’s still a pretty hefty price for many of us Kirkwood-loving ladies out there.

Love the design, but can’t commit to the real deal? Well, then take a good look at these lovely Nicholas Kirkwood inspired booties by Chelsea & Zoe! They might not come in the same indigo hue, the design however is absolutely spot-on with these peep-toe faux suede booties! Plus, I kind of prefer the ocean blue Chelsea & Zoe version anyway. Also available in black and burgundy red.

The rise of the Birkenstock sandal has been a massive one and the eco shoe trend even managed to leave its marks on some of the most renamed high fashion designers such as Isabel Marant who designed a couple Birkenstock-like styles (remember Edris?), but added a few nice extra details like bows and studs to make them look bearable to those who have a non-hippie approach to shoes. The “Brook” style for example features a lovely braided t-strap which gives it more of a boho vibe rather than that of orthopedic shoes, however I still don’t see myself shelling out $510 for these babies!

Miz Mooz “Jocelyn” Braided Leather Thong Sandals

Luckily, I don’t have to because Miz Mooz gives us the Isabel Marant look for much less. The design of their “Jocelyn” sandal is amazingly similar to Marant’s “Brook”, plus these beauties come in many beautiful colors such as blush pink, taupe, tan, navy, yellow, turquoise and black suede.

‘Tis the season to get your spike on! From spiked heels to spiked drinks – I am so down! Which is why this Pigalle “Loubie” should totally be in my stocking. But at over $1.000 and the fact that it’s sold out – ol’ St. Nick won’t be dropping these babies off anytime soon! No worries though, all my naughty girls; we found a nice lil’ knockoff below.

Studio TMLS “Bahia” Studded Pumps

See… naughty girls need love, too. And these pretty pumps as well! “Bahia” by Studio TMLS is not as spiked or as high as the Pigalle, but for about roughly 10% of the original cost, I think we can deal with these few exceptions. But not spiking my drink with enough of the good stuff is a whole other story. ūüėČ

When it comes to shoes, I don’t mind mine to look a bit bondage-y because it instantly adds sex appeal and confidence to any outfit. That’s why it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’m quite obsessed with these buckled multi-strap high heel sandals from Italian shoemaster Giuseppe Zanotti. But I can love these heels all I want, it won’t change the fact that they’re way out of my budget at more than $700 and that’s already the sale price! This means no Zanottis for me just yet.
