Real vs. Steal – Zara Flat Jelly Sandals

by Irina on February 16, 2014

UPDATE: This post has been updated on February 16, 2014. Scroll down to see the new add.

Chances are you’ve already seen these rhinestoned two-tone t-strap flats by ZARA somewhere. Maybe you saw them on a style blog (or many, as I have) or maybe you spotted them on someone else’s feet out in the streets last summer; you might even have contemplated getting them yourself while perusing the ZARA store for the latest fashion finds. I’m not sure whether ZARA designed these with some other designer shoe in mind (not that I know of) since they like to “borrow” from the latest runway styles. Anyway, these t-strap flats became quite the hot seller and sold out at full-price in no time.

Bamboo Lynna 01 Rhinestone Studded Strappy Flats

Et voilà! Bamboo brings us a perfectly finde substitute in faux suede leather for under $12! Is that amazing or what? Love the sandals, love the price! I think I even prefer the Bamboo flats over the ZARA version since I really don’t like having gummy plastic material cover my feet (even though the ZARA sandals also don’t look quite like a jelly flat to me). Anyway, better get them now before these sell out as well and so you’re ready to rock a pair of super cute summer shoes when warmer weather comes around.

Back in April, we received a reader request from Anais asking us to find a look-4-less option for these gorgeous side-buckle booties by Giuseppe Zanotti from the SS2013 collection. At this time there weren’t any look-a-likes of these Zanotti ankle boots available, so I told Anais to wait a few months because I was sure that eventually I would find something suitable for her. I kept her email in my “open requests”-folder and yesterday was the day I could finally check off Anais’ request because I managed to find 2 great look for less alternatives. Woohoo! I hope you like my steal finds, dear Anais!

So I am usually neither a big fan of chunky military boots nor am I a white shoes person, but the moment I spotted these all white Doc Martens on Solestruck’s Instagram I was OBSESSED! I instantly pictured an outfit with them in my head and had to share it with you. I really can’t get enough of black and white lately, can you? And what do you think of the look or the monochrome standout boots? Yay or nay?

I know you’re going to love this! Remember the gorgeous blue Cinderella-like Manolos Carrie wore at the end of the Sex and the City Movie? Yeah, I couldn’t get them out of my head either. The classic design and the bold blue hue make them great contenders for your favorite formal footwear.

Sex and the City Loves Manolo Blahnik

In the movie Carrie said they cost $525, but due to the vast demand retailers almost doubled the price to an outrageous $965 making them a fictional purchase for most of us shoe addicts who are living on a budget. What a bummer!

Audrey Brooke “Sarah” Buckle Satin Pumps

UPDATE (02/02/2014): Stumbled upon yet another Manolo Blahnik pump dupe from the Sex and the City movie. Check out this lovely cobalt blue satin pump by Audrey Brooke. Also available in ivory satin.

Nina “Bonique” Buckle Satin Pumps

UPDATE (10/11/2013): I know a lot of you are still looking for a Manolo Blahnik Something Blue dupe, so I was ecstatic to finally find a new great and budget-friendly look-a-like. Aren’t these Nina shoes absolutely lovely? Price? $69.99 (sale price!) and available in 9 beautiful colors: cobalt, green, yellow, black, champagne, tiffany blue, fuchsia, ivory and silver.

RSVP “Sincere” Satin Pumps

UPDATE (06/14/2012): Found yet another pair of Manolo Blahnik look-a-likes, again by RSVP. Available in 4 different colors: black, bronze, cobalt blue and silver satin. If you’re looking a higher heel, check out “Simonecj” by RSVP which isn’t quite as spot-on as “Sincere” but has a disctinctly higher heel.

RSVP “Zaza” Blue Satin Pumps

UPDATE (09/23/2009): Stumbled upon these awesome Manolo Blahnik knockoffs by RSVP today.

Look what I found! If you missed out on the Martinez Valero heels or just couldn’t justify the $160 price tag, these satin pumps by RSVP look almost identical, but are $60 cheaper. Available in blue, black, ivory and white. Grab these knockoffs while you can, I’m sure they are going to sell out super fast. RSVP also has a flat heeled version of the Manolo Blahnik look-a-likes called “Cassiecj” ($99) which looks exactly like the Martinez Valero version except with a low heel.

Shiekh Mitzy Hachi-200 Satin Pumps

UPDATE (09/23/2009): And here’s another alternative to the Manolo Blahnik Something Blue Satin Pumps.

I know these satin pumps by Shiekh aren’t exactly knockoffs, but the blue satin and the vamp embellishment reminded me of the Manolo Blahniks above and since these here resemble the Sedaraby pumps by Blahnik famously worn by Carrie Bradshaw a lot, I thought I just put them here as a budget-friendly alternative for under $50. Also available in pink and black satin!

Martinez Valero “Zenith” Blue Satin Pumps

Do not despair however! Because Martinez Valero has finally heard our prayers! He came up with an almost identical pair of his own blue satin pumps which also have the vamp embellishment, but cost only about 1/10 of the original Manolos. So if you are in need of beautiful yet affordable bridal shoes, these here might be your best bet. But hurry, once the masses get wind of these Manolo Blahnik look-a-likes, I guarantee you, they will be gone in a minute!

I know we’re still a million light years away from summer, but I’ve had enough of winter already! And I’ve especially had enough of boots and booties – I miss wearing my airy summer shoes so much! Speaking of summer shoes, how lovely are these ankle wrap wedge espadrilles by Jimmy Choo? I am absolutely in loooove with them! Too bad they’re all sold out! But even if they weren’t, $495 is a pretty steep price for a pair of espadrilles, don’t you agree?
