It’s only March, but I already have started looking for new summer shoes. These nude-colored slingback espadrille wedges by Balenciaga would be a perfect candidate! They look so deliciously summery, don’t they?! I love the leg-lenghtening beige color, the open-toe that can be utilized to show off a fresh pedicure (see celeb picture below) and the wedge which makes wearing 5″ heels more bearable. If only these weren’t $695!

Steven by Steve Madden “JOYRIDE” Slingback Espadrille Wedges

If your wallet can’t handle the price tag of the original Balenciagas, you might find a liking in these Steven by Steve Madden espadrille wedges which are an almost perfect dupe of the Balenciaga shoes. The heel on these is one inch shorter, but that’s probably a good thing since walking around a full day in 5″ heels can be quite the painful affair, even if it’s a wedge heel. $129.95 and you can call them yours! Also available in black leather.

How gorgeous are these Cat-Embroidered Suede Slippers by Charlotte Olympia? They are a combination of modern design and a classic silhouette. The mini golden heel exhibits pure luxury and the cat-face embroidery adds a fun, young, and unexpected touch. Unfortunately, the price reflects all of these qualities and makes these wonderful flats merely unattainable. However, we have very similar options below for each and every budget!

Liliana Mulberry-1 Cat Face Loafers

HOT DEAL: Use promo code “GJSHIP60” to get free shipping on your $60+ order!

For casual footwear with certain uniqueness, these Liliana loafers exemplify how a casual flat/loafer should be like. They are chic and can be very elegant; however, they are also equally fun and interesting to look at! Plus, priced at $19.40, they make a very worthy and inexpensive steal while mimicking the designer look pictured above!

Blink Cat Face Slipper Shoes

I have to admit, these Blink Cat Face Slipper Shoes are probably my favorite! They are a mixture of the high-end luxury designer version yet they also maintain the casual-like feel as the steal above. Though they are a bit pricier than the Liliana loafers, they are more refined in terms of their structure. Priced at £34.99 (approx. $55), they seem to be the most similar to the Charlotte Olympia version while still being affordable! Also, for an extra shipping charge they can be shipped to almost every destination!

Evening shoes! We sure don’t wear them as often as we tell ourselves we’d do right before we buy them, but once a girl’s in love, a girl’s in love, she can’t help it! Just like I can’t help but be absolutely in love with these sparkling beauties by Tabitha Simmons. What a gorgeous shoe, right? A very expensive one, too!

Not quite as pretty, but probably the closest you’ll come to getting the Tabitha Simmons look for under $50 are these evening heels by Anne Michelle. I’m totally smitten with the red version!

Dear Tom Ford, you certainly know your craft, don’t you? Because here we go again with yet another stunning Tom Ford creation! This head-to-toe mosaic look from Ford’s S/S 2014 collection is nothing short of amazing and it shouldn’t have come as a surprise that a power lady such as Beyoncé chose this very outfit to rock it to the release of her latest album. Unfortunately, these badass thigh boots never got into retail, but even if they would have, I’m sure none of us mortals would have been able to afford them.

Hats off to bebe for going mainstream on such a bold shoe! The mosaic effect isn’t quite as distinctive as on the original, but bebe’s version certainly comes close enough, don’t you agree? And with the doable price tag of $269, none of us will have to rob a bank in order to afford these.
