I love me a good monochrome look. There’s something so French Chic about a black and white outfit that makes you feel instantly stylish. Kim Kardashian obviously thinks the same way because she’s been sporting some monochrome fabulousness lately alongside color coordinated boyfriend Kanye West. While I agree that the peplum top did look a bit unflattering from some angles I also think this would make a great outfit for someone tall with lean legs or perhaps an apple-shaped person. What do you think?

All hail the master of the stiletto heel, Monsieur Christian Louboutin. Whenever I start wondering which Louboutin will rock my world next I discover a style like the “Clou Noeud” (try spelling that!), a perfect symbiosis of a feminine blush bow-adorned slingback pump and rocker, kickass conical studs and a platform a stripper heel would be proud of. Needless to say we’ve gotten quite a few reader requests for these beauties which are long sold out how despite the shocking price tag of $1.195.

N.Y.L.A. “Genevieve” Slingback Platform Pumps

If you follow me on Twitter you might have read my tweet where I said that I just might have found THE knockoff of 2010. Well, here it is: the “Genevieve” by N.Y.L.A.. The color and heel vary slightly, but otherwise they’re practically twins. Except you’ll only have to pay an affordable $44.50 for the N.Y.L.A. platforms to get mad Louboutin style on a budget. Now wouldn’t these be the perfect christmas gift to yourself or any shoe-loving fashionista on your gift list? They come in either nude, red or black leather.

Christian Louboutin is the mastermind behind the designer footwear aesthetic. Often considered to be one of the most well known designers, his designs are truly never lackluster and always exude luxury. Capturing our attention a few months ago were the Pigalle Plato Pumps, and now these Pigalle 120 Patent-Leather Pumps do just the same. This papaya-pink color featured below is simply amazing with the addition of a pointed toe. Before, I never really appreciated any pointy toe shoes, however these pumps have sincerely changed my perspective. Priced at $625, I, for one will not be purchasing these any time soon. Conversely, take a look at more affordable versions of these pumps below!

Alloy “Molly” Heels

Our most affordable steal, priced at $14.99 (sale price!), are these Alloy “Molly” heels. Simply put, I love this color! With summer shortly approaching, I have been craving bright colors in my wardrobe and this shoe is the perfect way to incorporate them. These also come in neon yellow for even more vividness. Truly an eye capturing shoe, one can make quite a statement in these heels.

Devious Sexy-20 Stiletto Pumps

Out of all the featured look-a-likes, this one by Devious appears to be the most significant because it very closely resembles the Louboutins. The patent shine, color, and super elongated heel are perfectly intact and maintain that Louboutin-esque look. With this type of shoe, it’s very difficult to go wrong especially when it radiates such a bold energy. Ultimately, these can be worn as a transition to summer and even in the winter for a nice pop of color.

Topshop “GAME” Pointed Court Shoes

Topshop is definitely one of my favorite stores due to their eclectic wardrobe varieties. Not to mention, these “Game” Pointed Court Shoes are absolutely beautiful. Though these are a bit pricier than the other alternatives above, I believe that they will become a permanent staple in one’s closet. They complement any outfit, and provide that extra vitality to spice up a dull look. I would love to pair them with perfectly tailored pants, but the wardrobe possibilities are simply superfluous.

If you come around regularly (and if you don’t, you should), then you’ve heard me profess my love for Giuseppe Zanotti shoes here and there. So here I go again. What I love about these Stud Crisscross Sandals is the combination of the colors, textures and detailing. It’s bold and edgy without beind in your face.

bebe “Keana” Studded Animal Print Sandals

UPDATE (07/18/2012): Two years later and I have come across another great Giuseppe Zanotti look-a-like. The bebe “Keana” sandal does have a few differences (e.g. the animal print back, gold instead of silver studs), but apart from those minor things it does look a lot like its designer counterpart, don’t you agree?

Steve Madden “CHARMMER” Sandals

HOT DEAL: Use promo code “SMSEP1” to get 15% off orders of $80+ or “SMSEP8” for 20% off orders of $125+ at Steve Madden including free shipping! Offer valid through 09/30/2013. Some exclusions apply.

These Steve Madden shoes are clearly inspired by the Zanotti pair, but the platform wedge, gold instead of silver studs and noticable lack of the color black gives it an entirely different look. Isn’t it funny how two things so similar can be so different at the same time? Well, that’s what makes the world of style go round. There’s plenty of options for us to all take our pick! Available in olive or black.

Brian Atwood is a very reliable source when it comes to the craftsmanship of brilliant footwear design. As he is known for bold silhouettes, it is not surprising that this “Glamazon” heel is an amazing statement shoe. The leather braiding details are slightly reminiscent of Grecian inspired shoes; however, I am not such a big fan of the lack of color. And though without a doubt Coco Rocha looks absolutely stunning wearing these killer heels, I wish they would at least have contrasting hues to contribute to the luxurious appeal and attempt at fulfilling the grand price. Like so, the steal below is both affordable and immersed with just the right amount of chromaticity!

ALDO “Jillanne” T-Strap Platform Sandals

As I criticized the shoes above for not having enough color, these ALDO “Jillanne” sandals are the perfect example of how I wished color would be incorporated in the BA heels. The contrasting hues perfectly complement one another and add more definition and zest to the design. Just like I mentioned that the “Glamazon” sandals reminded me of modern Grecian shoes, I think these sandals exhibit a very similar look, if not almost identical! Plus, they are very well priced and on sale for $69.99!
