Real vs. Steal – Christian Louboutin Bridget Strass Pumps

by Irina on December 22, 2010

UPDATE: This post has been updated on December 22, 2010. Scroll down to read the news.

So we received quite a few reader requests to find a knock-off of the uber-glam Bridget strass-adorned lace booties by the legendary Christian Louboutin. These were designed by Monsieur Louboutin for Marchesa’s ethereal Spring 2010 collection and perfectly reflected the brand’s affinity for feminine details like lace and embellishments. Month after month passed by and no knock-offs were in sight. I began to think that copycats à la Madden & Campbell shy away from this particular style because of the complicity of this shoe – the fragile strass & the delicate lace – details that’ll look incredibly tacky and wrong if done cheaply. But – lo and behold! Today was one of those rare lucky days…

Dollhouse “Tano” Platform Sandals

UPDATE (12/22/2010): OMG! AmiClubWear got hold of the Dollhouse “Tano” booties. If you missed out on this incredible Louboutin look-a-like earlier this year, this is your chance. Stock up on these gorgeous heels in all 3 colors (gold, black & red)! Many sizes still available. Don’t miss out on these & order them ASAP before they’re gone again!

Imagine my utter excitement when I spied these “Tano” sandals by Dollhouse yesterday! This knock-off is probably as good as it gets. Yes, they don’t have strass on the heel, but what do you expect from a $30 shoe? I think they look absolutely fabulous and they’re super affordable, on top of it. Gotta order these ASAP before you guys snap them all away. Available in gold, black and red. Order fast, I really don’t think these darlings will stay too long on the website once people catch wind of these Louboutins 4 less.

Anne Michelle Obscene-14 Embroidered Heels

UPDATE (08/04/2010): I really didn’t think it would get better than Dollhouse’s Tano, but look at these floral embroidered Loubie look-a-likes by Anne Michelle! Wowza! They might not be top notch quality, but at half the price of the DH version you won’t hear me complaining. Available in gold (shown below) as well as black and silver.

    Would you check a steal version of the Casadei, Triple Platform Pums???? I have been looking for them, and i don’t seem to find any.

  • http://intheircloset.com Irina

    You’re welcome, Stacey. Glad you were able to snag them. So happy for you! :)

    Thank you, InTheirCloset, for introducting me to my new crush! These Louboutins are absolutely HEAVENLY! I absolutely love the gold studded heel as well as the polar opposte front – Japanese-esque flowers. Even though the front is so different than the back, the two parts meld together so beautfully! Great pick, Irina!

  • chicnik

    Saw these on your site yesterday, ordered them, and they arrived this morning. Beautiful!!!

  • http://intheircloset.com Irina

    WOW! Lightening-fast shipping @Endless. Awesome? And you like your new shoes, chicnik?

  • chicnik

    I LOVE the shoes. Now I have to figure out how and with what I want to wear with them. Any suggestions?

  • http://intheircloset.com Irina

    @chicnik: So envious of you! My outfit suggestions would be to pair these OTT heels with rather classic and simple basics like a Little Black Dress, dark washed skinny jeans with a simple fitted top and a blazer. I can also picture these with a pair of elegant high-waisted shorts à la Chloé or a solid tulip skirt maybe. Pick up the lace theme and add a few lacey accessories to your outfit, but don’t overdo it. :)

    i got today!!! yay!!! it’s beyond GORGEOUS!! it did run a tad small. i usually get size 6 but it fit just right on my feet.. a half inch woulda gave it a little room but i love it regardless! oh and the 1″ platform really helps!! cant wait to wear this!

  • http://intheircloset.com Irina

    You do an AMAZING job of finding lookalikes, and inspire me to keep searching for affordable fashion for my own readers. Do you literally scour the stores, search the net, or do the manufacturers come to you? Love the site!

  • http://intheircloset.com Irina

    Thank you so much, Hillary. Mostly I do just online research, stay up-to-date with all the designer collections, read a lot of fashion blogs, etc. Sometimes readers tip us off with new knockoff finds.

  • Tommi

    I just looked at the Dollhouse brand and right now they are on sale for $9.99!!
