Never was there a more comfortable heel for those of us who rarely wear flats. This design by Burberry has all the sophistication and allure of stilettos but thanks to the high platform and ankle straps, the stairs in your office building will be less daunting. This pair will get you so much mileage because you’ll be able to wear them with all of your wide leg pants and trousers! Simply add a signature black tote with gold hardware and you’ll be all set. The price is a bit steep though, so if you rather not spend your whole shoe budget on them, we can help with an amazing steal below!

Steve Madden “CRITIKAL” Buckled Sandals

HOT DEAL: Use promo code “SMJUL1” to get $15 off orders of $80 or more at Steve Madden including free shipping! Offer valid through 07/31/2013. Some exclusions apply.

How amazing is this pair by Steve Madden for only a fraction of the price? They have the same details, with just a few modifications: silver vs. gold hardware and a slightly shorter heel. But other than that they are almost identical! Upon closer look, I think a pencil skirt and a white blouse would look fantastic with these. Finish the outfit with a handbag similar to Stella McCartney’s Falabella, and keep the rest of your accessories modern and minimal: perhaps add a set of silver bangles and that’s it. More great news? They are also available in cognac and white leather.

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll probably know that – apart from a few occasional exceptions – I’m a great fan of Giuseppe Zanotti‘s shoe designs. For example, I loved to see all the metal-plated heels (or flats for that matter) which were one of Zanotti’s key design elements in his S/S 2012 collection. It’s such a nice and interesting detail which instantly sexifies the shoe (just look at all the celebs below working it in these metal-plated Zanotti heels). I wish I had an inexhaustible shopping budget so I could show Signore Zanotti some love!

If you’re a Zanotti fan and are looking for a similar design, Steve Madden‘s “ATENTION” heels are a good start. They’re not a spot-on dupe and I wish they hadn’t such a high platform, but they still look pretty similar to the designer version. Make sure to use the promo code above to save some bucks along the way!

Booties have been my everlasting footwear obsession for this past fall and winter and will be a great transition piece for spring. Christian Louboutin gave his iconic finish on these Belle Zeppa Wedge Booties and recreated the mundane bootie, amplifying it to the next level with the hidden heel and refined taste. But as much as I love red backs, the price is way beyond my budget! If you’re in my shoes, you are in luck because we have several alternatives that fit every budget.

Sam Edelman “Wilma” Wedge Booties

I have been eyeing the “Wilma” Wedge Booties by Sam Edelman since they first arrived at 6pm, and though before I restrained myself from making this lustworthy purchase, now they are finally on sale for $107.99! They are palpably super chic and versatile and will be a long lived item in my closet.

Pour La Victoire “Chaney” Wedge Booties

If you prefer a more rounded toe finish bootie, then these by Pour La Victoire may be for you. A simple bootie like this one can go a long way, and these are truly appropriate for every occasion. If black is too dark for your personal style, these are also available in olive suede (my personal favorite) and grey.

Chinese Laundry “At Once” Wedge Booties

The “At Once” Wedge Bootie by Chinese Laundry, like the other alternatives above, is certainly more affordable than the Louboutin originals. Priced on sale for $58.65, these are a coveted steal that will only become essential in your closet. Besides the amazing price, these are also available in navy and taupe suede.

So how lovely are these glitter sneakers by Miu Miu? They are absolutely gorgeous, aren’t they? Now I don’t really own any sporty-looking shoes, but I would love to have these in my closet for all those days when you want to look fancy but when high heels just aren’t an option. But oh dear, $495 for a pair of sneakers? Not really justifiable with my kind of shopping budget.

Wanted “Broome” Glitter Fashion Sneakers

These glitter sneakers by Wanted might not look quite as high class as the original Miu Mius, but they are a great alternative if you’re craving the glitter look. And did I mention that these are currently on sale for less than $40? Awesome deal, right? Also available in gold, bronze and blue glitter.
