I absolutely adore the entire B Brian Atwood collection for several reasons. I appreciate how the collection is true to the label yet is more of an affordable version, without straying from Brian Atwood’s vision. Though I may not be able to purchase this shoe until it hits the sale rack, if it ever does, I cannot fail to express my obsession with it. The colorblocking adds a pop of color juxtaposing a simple pump with a not-so-simple pattern. However, if you don’t want to wait until the next sale, which may never exist in fact, check out the alternative below.

Steve Madden “OPTICALL” Colorblock Suede Pumps

HOT DEAL: Use promo code “SMMAR1” to get 15% off orders of $100 or more at Steve Madden including free shipping! Offer valid through 02/28/2013. Some exclusions apply.

Featured on a previous post, these Steve Madden pumps are making their reappearance except in colorblocking form. The shape is very reminiscent of these Giuseppe Zanotti heels, but the colorblocking is very B Brian Atwood. To mimic the B Brian Atwood look the ankle strap is removable, so you can mix and match the different style this pump boasts. The amalgam of design and inspiration behind this shoe creates an eclectic feel that will last long both regarding wearability and trends.

Lauren Conrad is to Los Angeles what Olivia Palermo is to New York; namely the best dressed socialite/reality tv personality in town! I was seriously starting to forget about LC and her impeccable style, but then I saw her in this white crisp button down shirt and forest green skinny jeans and I remembered how much I used to love Lauren’s classic style of dressing. Of course, I instantly had to recreate LC’s sharp look on a budget-friendly level. Check it out below!

Flat ankle boots look especially chic and elegant and are perfect for colder weather as a substitute for a pair of heels. While keeping in mind a hint of equestrian style, Ralph Lauren created a simple ankle boot that is yet so impeccably designed. The metal buckles on the side add a modern touch and craft a versatile feel. With that said, these beauties are priced at a not-so-simple budget of $695 and are sold out, too! However, check out the amazing look-a-likes we found below!

Tory Burch “Amarina” Booties

Tory Burch is often noted as the Queen of Comfort when it comes towards designing beautiful shoes. Although I haven’t personally worn these “Amarina” Booties, I highly doubt that they’d be likely to disappoint in the comfort department. Very similar to the ankle boots above, these booties feature a similar equestrian meets edgy style, but come with a much smaller price tag. Though they are still fairly pricey at $395, they’d make a great splurge and could take you through almost all of winter and fall!

Unlisted “Beyond Me” Flat Ankle Boots

And here we have a beautiful and affordable version of the luxe designer booties above priced at only $49.99 (sale price!)! These Unlisted “Beyond Me” Flat Ankle Boots exude edginess and are the perfect casual everyday shoes. The buckle gives it somewhat of a biker boot vibe, but at the same time does not deduct from the equestrian design details. These booties can be paired with virtually anything in your wardrobe: tights, leggings, denim, knit dresses and so on, so get then while they’re still available!

Despite the respect and admiration I have for the creativity of Monsieur Christian Louboutin; if I had to buy a pair of Louboutins with my current sad little shoe budget I’d choose a very classic style to ensure I’ll get maximum bang for my buck. I’ve always loved the shape of the “Bianca” – a high platform stiletto pump, so it’s very likely I’d go for this style because it looks like one of my personified shoe dreams.

bebe “Jacob” Slingback Pumps

As long as I still have to save up for the real deal, I might as well get something nice for the time in between. bebe.’s “Jacob” slingback pump looks like very much like Bianca’s little sister, but costs way less than her big sister. I love how Bebe put Loubie’s signature red sole on the outside of the heel. Looks good this way, too, huh? Available in black/red or navy/black patent.

Victoria’s Secret angel and supermodel mom Miranda Kerr went for a monochrome casual cool getup recently when she departed from LAX on January 15, 2013, looking absolutely fabulous in oversized cat eye sunglasses, an animal print cardigan, black leather pants and her favorite Isabel Marant Bekket wedge sneakers. I loved Miranda’s look so much, I recreated it for you on a more budget-friendly level. Hope you like it!
