Shoes

One really has to love the playfulness that is Miu Miu. How lovely are these colorful crystal-encrusted pumps? Absolutely gorgeous, aren’t they? Total statement shoes that would liven up any bland outfit of jeans and a black blazer. However, these lovely shoes aren’t only beautiful but expensive, too. Your alternatives? Well, you could either start a time-consuming DIY-project or buy one of the cute Miu Miu look-a-like options we’ve found below…

Jeffrey Campbell “Dulce” Embellished Pointed-Toe Pumps

First one up is this almost identical Miu Miu dupe by Jeffrey Campbell. There aren’t quite as many yellow stones on this pump, but the rest is pretty much spot-on. Not exactly a steal at $195 but still almost $800 less than the original.

Jessica Buurman “KEITH” Colorful Diamante Pumps

Another great alternative is this crystal-adorned pointy pump which I discovered at Jessica Buurman. It, too, looks very similar to the Miu Mius but costs only $139!

This celebrity look of Miranda Kerr isn’t exactly new or anything, but I have always loved this classy outfit of hers, so when I saw the elegant pencil dress from Oasis a few days ago, I knew it’d be the perfect budget dress alternative for Miranda’s body-con Victoria Beckham frock. Do you like my take on this celebrity look 4 less?

When I first laid my eyes on Tibi‘s crystal-embellished “Britt” wedge mules, I was instantly obsessed! And that’s coming from someone who really isn’t a fan of mules. But this one was different! And while the Tibis aren’t terribly expensive at $495, they are however pretty much sold out everywhere and hence hard to get ahold of. So when I spotted these non-embellished Zara mules below, I thought maybe this could be a DIY project? I’m not much of a DIYer, but the idea sounds doable. What do you think? Are these shoes worth the effort?

After running this blog for more than 6 months, I don’t get as excited as I used to when spotting a new knockoff. Today, however, was one of these rare days. A few months back when it was announced that Chloë Sevigny would design a second collection for Opening Ceremony (Fall/Winter 2009), I spotted a pair of to-die-for black buckle boots on Chloë’s feet and I instantly fell in love.

It was one of these shoe obsessions where I was even willing to take the plunge and go for the real deal, but my enthusiasm came to an abrupt end when I learned that a) the buckle boots wouldn’t be available until late August/September and b) were priced at $625 which is twice the price I expected/hoped them to be.

Penny Loves Kenny “Clay” Gladiator Sandals

UPDATE (05/15/2014): Almost four years after the last find, I happened to come across this strappy wedge by Penny Loves Kenny which instantly reminded me of the Opening Ceremony booties above.

Steve Madden “REANA” Wedges

UPDATE (04/21/2010): Steve Madden is a little late with his designer inspired “REANA” wedges, but I quite like his take on the O.C. wedge booties.

Jeffrey Campbell “Genius” Buckle Wedges

UPDATE (02/12/2010): Jeffrey Campbell just can’t get over Chloë’s wedges for O.C. Here’s his newest interpretation called “Genius” – Pretty darn close to the originals, don’t you think? Available in grey or khaki.

bebe “Karen” Multi-Strap Wedges

UPDATE (10/22/2009): Just stumbled upon yet another budget-friendly alternative. These wedges by bebe might not be an identical match, but I think they still come pretty close.

Jeffrey Campbell “Belgium” Buckled Wedge Booties

UPDATE (10/22/2009): Here’s JC’s second take on the buckled wedge as seen above which I kind of prefer to the first one.

Jeffrey Campbell “Potion” Ankle Boots

I tried to find reasonably priced knockoffs for weeks, but never found anything noteworthy. Until today when I accidentally stumbled upon these buckled boots by Jeffrey Campbell. Just look at them, they look almost the same except the original O.C. boots have those additional buckle caps which is a minor bummer, but otherwise they are identical and cost only 1/6 of the originals’ price. Big YAY!
