Stuart Weitzman + over-the-knee boots is apparently a foolproof formula for commercial success! Don’t believe me? Just look at all the various fab fashion bloggers rocking their Stuart Weitzman OTK boots below! It all started with the iconic “5050” and is now followed by Weitzman’s next set of super hit boots: the “Highland” (which we have already written about a few weeks ago, see the post here) and the “Lowland” which we are featuring in today’s Real vs. Steal post. Both boots are almost identical in design, but have either a flat heel (Lowland) or a high heel (Highland, d’uh!). It’s certainly not the first pair of OTK suede boots we’ve seen come out in the last couple of years, but definitely the most successful and coveted one (we’re still counting the reader requests for this one). As with Stuart Weitzman shoes in general, they don’t come cheap. Especially not the boots and especially not the over-the-knee kind of boots. These beauties here – please hold your breath here – cost $798! Yup, I cried a little too when I saw that price tag. Luckily, we were able to find a couple of fantastic dupes that will save you the trouble of having to rob a bank to sport this season’s hottest trend.

INC International Concepts “Imannie” Flat Over-The-Knee Boots

Update (11/21/2016): Stumbled upon another lovely Lowland look-alike boot by INC International Concepts which – judging by the customer reviews – would be best suitable for petite women as these are not quite as OTK as the name would suggest.

They do cost $500 $280 which is obviously a lot of money, but they will still save you $298 $518 compared to the real deal.

Update (11/21/2016): Again, these boots by Free People are more of the “pricey Lowland dupe”-kind, but they are more than $500 cheaper than the real deal, so they still might be worth the splurge.

Style Charles “Groove” Faux Suede Over-the-Knee Boots

Update (10/03/2016): I think it’s pretty safe to say that Stuart Weitzman’s Low- and Highland Over-The-Knee Boots are officially getting just as popular as his highly coveted 50/50 OTK boots a few years ago!

Dolce Vita “Neely” Flat Over-The-Knee Boots

My personal favorite first: the “Neely” boot from Dolce Vita, a spot-on “Lowland” dupe with very positive customer reviews for roughly 1/4 of the real deal’s price. At $200, it sure isn’t a steal find and probably won’t be an impulse buy for anyone here, but if you like the style I suggest you better hurry up with your purchase.

Aldo “Barra” Lace-Back Suede Over-The-Knee Boots

Next up is a boot by Aldo. “Barra” is also spot-on in terms of design when compared to the Lowland. It’s $110 cheaper than the Dolce Vita version, but the reviews for this one are also rather mixed. Anyway, if you want to give it a try, these boots come in either taupe or black suede.

Steve Madden “Odina” Flat Suede Over-The-Knee Boots

Of course Steve Madden couldn’t miss the opportunity to join in on this knock-off game as well! “Odina”, like the other Lowland look-alikes above, is nearly identical to the real deal, but costs only $149.95. Though I do have to add that this boot has a fabric upper unlike the dupes above which are made of genuine leather.

And lastly, Schutz. Another absolutely fabulous and spot-on look for less alternative for Stuart Weitzman’s “Lowland”. And not too expensive either at $125 (sale price!) as well! Unfortunately though, they’re almost sold out at Shopbop and I couldn’t find any other retailer stocking this beautiful boot (boohoo!).

When it comes to me obsessing over shoes it usually happens with high heels only. However, if it’s a shoe by Valentino I most likely will love it no matter whether it’s a sky-high stiletto or a flat gladiator sandal like this one. And I absolutely adore these studded summer sandals! Who wouldn’t anyway? They’re utterly chic without compromising on the comfort factor and the gold rockstuds really set these shoes off. I love how LeAnn Rimes wears her Valentinos with shorts and breezy tops. Too bad I don’t have her shoe shopping budget because at $945 these would have been quite the investment in terms of summer footwear.

But hurry up, some sizes are already out of stock as these summer sandals are figuratively flying off the shelves.

Wasn’t there a moment in every little girl’s life where she has dreamed of being a ballerina? And with ballet flats as lovely looking as these by Chloé, isn’t there still a place in every woman’s heart for that little girl’s dream? Too bad the reality of that $485 price tag keeps most of us away from making that dream come true.

I have a feeling this summer will be the summer of the espadrille. First we had Valentino’s lace espadrilles and Chanel’s iconic cap-toe espadrille flats and Céline have created their own version in form of this pony hair espadrille slipper which also comes in gorgeous leopard print and royal blue (my fave!). I couldn’t find a retail price for these, but I’m sure they’re totally out of my budget.

Spring is officially around the corner and I can’t wait to ditch all of my winter clothes and finally pull out airy dresses and open-toed sandals from their winter hiatus. But since Spring isn’t in full bloom yet, we can’t probably do without a warm coat or jacket, but we can definitely welcome the new season by lightening up our wardrobe with pastel colors for example which is what I tried to do in this week’s budget look edition. Let me know if you like it!
