Finally! I’ve gotta tell you guys, I have been anxiously awaiting the “knock-off” version of the Alexander Wang Alla wedges for months now and judging from the amount of emails we’ve received on this shoe, I’m not the only one. These super cute wedges are not only super pricey but also super sold out. I initially saw them on Khloe Kardashian (the leopard version) and it was love at first sight. Since then I’ve been both stalking them on eBay (totally fruitless) and looking for “steal” versions (also completely pointless)…

Joan & David “Opal” Wedge Booties

Well our patience seems to have paid off. Joan & David‘s “Opal” Wedge Booties are not the cheapest steal we’ve ever featured, but gosh, they’re good, aren’t they? In all the most important ways, these booties are an awesome knockoff of the Allas. Beautiful shape, rich color, peep-toe… half the price… now all we need is a leopard version. For now though, I’ll take the black leather or black suede.

Wow, when did I stop hating leopard print? Because, to be honest, I used to loathe it and the only associations I had with it were aging divas being clad in head-to-toe leopard or cheesy leopard print bedding coming straight out some vintage 70s porno. But this year Alexander Wang worked his magic on me. He created the “Alla” leopard wedge and what used to be hate changed into love and adoration.

Renvy “Sana” Animal Print Calf Hair Peep-Toe Wedge Mules

UPDATE (07/25/2015): When I saw these animal print wedge mules by Renvy, they instantly reminded me of the Alexander Wang Alla leopard wedges above. These are currently on sale for $55 and come also in black, nude, white leather as well as black suede.

Nina “Yaneli” Leopard Wedges

Now $650 is not my typical shoe shopping budget, so I had to wait for someone to come along with a cheaper alternative. And finally, Nina heard my prayers. Well, not only mine but apparently also yours because the Alla leopard wedge was undoubtedly the most requested shoe on InTheirCloset. So here you go, girls! A wonderful Wang-inspired leopard wedge bootie. Now, run, don’t walk, some sizes are already sold out.

I didn’t used to be too fond of pearls because I always thought they’re too antiquated and conservative, but ever since Dior’s Mise En Dior Double Pearl Earrings pearls have officially won me over! And of course Chanel can’t do no wrong. Pearls are iconic for the French fashion house and I just love how they incorporated the pearls to the suede sandals below. The design is so minimalistic yet so elegant due to the pearl-embellishment. If you’re not into high heels and need a dressy shoe for summer, these would be perfect! If you can afford them, that is. I’m not sure what the retail price is for these, but since this is Chanel we’re talking about, I’m sure a lot of us can’t stomach the price.

Schutz “Darussa” Pearl Flat Sandals

Luckily, there’s no need to loot our savings accounts because Schutz have an amazingly similar pearl-embellished flat style that would be a great alternative to the Chanel shoes above. They’re not exactly budget-friendly at $160, but definitely a lot more attainable than the real deal. And if you prefer high heels, there’s also a very lovely 4″ high heel version named “Danielle” available at Amazonamazon.

Aldo “Taong” Pearl-Embellished Thong Sandals

Now I know these pearl-embellished thong sandals by Aldo aren’t an identical dupe, but I thought they would still be a good alternative if you’re looking for something Chanel-inspired. And have I already mentioned they’re currently half off for $27.50?! Now that’s what I call a steal deal!

This fantastic Valentino Bow d’Orsay Pump may look a little familiar to you… that’s because we featured the red version here on ITC back in July 2009. But nude heels are so hot right now that we felt compelled to revisit this pair. They’re a totally fresh take on nude – sculptural and feminine at the same time.

Paris Hilton “Senorita” Bow Pumps

So now that you’ve seen the Valentino Bow D’Orsay Pumps and have fallen in love, here’s your real-world option: the “Senorita” Bow Pump by Paris Hilton. I know, I know, Paris Hilton. But this is a nude pump unlike any of the ones we’ve featured lately, and it really is hauntingly similar to the higher-priced version. Plus, it’s available in 11 (!) different colors and finishes.

Even though I am not very partial to Birkenstock shoes, I know Céline made them “très cool” last year. And this year, we have Isabel Marant strengthening their coolness factor even further by adding a cute studded bow on top and giving those bland Birkenstocks her typical boho touch which we’ve seen in previous of Marant’s collections. Well, I have to admit I kinda like these summer sandals here and I bet these suckers are super comfortable to wear!

Jessica Buurman “LEILA” Bow Tie Ankle Lace Up Flat Sandals

So you can’t afford to spend $600 on the originals yet these shoes just won’t go out of your head? Well then take a look at this Jessica Buurman sandal which is quite obviously inspired by Marant’s “Edris” sandal above. It’s not a perfect dupe and you obviously won’t get the same quality, but it’s $440 cheaper, so that’s that.
