We’ve already written multiple times about the items of Valentino‘s famed “Rockstud“-family and as you might remember, up until now I loved every single bag or shoe that came out with the unmistakably studded silhouette. However, when Valentino brought out a “kitten heel” version of their iconic Rockstud high heels, I wasn’t too impressed at first. Sure, I did love them from the front, but the side view? Not so much. Kitten heels just aren’t my cup of tea and probably will never be, but seeing them on the gorgeous bloggers and celebs below, at least I realized that there are women who can get away with wearing kitten heels (skinny girls with beautiful long legs specifically). What still kept me cringing about these kitten heels though is the hefty price tag of $995!

It’s been a while since we last featured a jewelry piece by Céline on this blog, so here you go: Céline’s knot bracelet which is available in various colors and sizes has made quite the round in the fashion blogosphere lately. The design strongly reminds me of Tiffany’s Love Knot Bangle with the biggest difference being that Céline’s version is left open in the back. I’m not sure what the retail price is for this bracelet, but pre-owned pieces start at approximately $400 which I think is quite the hefty price for a gold-plated brass bangle.

Dear “Pigalle“, I know you won’t like this, but there’s a new queen in town, her name is “So Kate” aka shoe perfection and she is probably Louboutin‘s hottest and most coveted style at the moment. One look at her and you will instantly understand why. The shiny black leather, the thinning stiletto heel, the perfectly shaped arch – everything about this shoe is just perfect! Plus, while the price of $675 sure isn’t exactly a bargain, compared to what other Louboutin styles are usually retailing for, these here are on the rather budget-friendlier side of the designer shoe price range. Which is also probably the reason why “So Kate” is constantly on the verge of selling out at nearly every e-tailer. Anyway, this beauty of a high heel has definitely taken the #1 spot on my current shoe wish list and until I have saved up the neccessary $675 to bring them home, I’ll settle for a less expensive Louboutin look-a-like in the meantime.

Guoar Pointed-Toe Stiletto Pumps

Update (01/08/2017): Came across these Louboutin look-alikes by Guoar. These seem to be of the “Made in China”-kind of designer dupes, so you better don’t expect top noth quality here, but for $48 these might be a good So Kate alternative (customer reviews average a 4 star rating with plenty of self-submitted buyer’s photos, so you can make an informed buyer’s decision). What I really, really liked about these Loubie dupes though is the variety of colors these come in: 31 (either in faux patent, leather or suede). Love!

Kaitlyn Pan Pointed-Toe Stiletto High Heel Pumps

Update (07/13/2016): There’s also a fabulous So Kate dupe available by Kaitlyn Pan for $99 and which also comes in nude patent. The design is spot-on, it’s made of genuine leather and if you read the customer reviews for the brand’s other designer inspired shoes, you’ll know you’ve found yourself a good designer dupe with these Louboutin-like beauties. The only drawback (if you consider it to be one) is that the sole is pink instead of Louboutin’s signature red. But everything else looks exactly like Louboutin’s So Kate.

Et voilà, check out “PROTO” by Steve Madden! Yes, I know it’s not a total spot-on dupe and that it’s not as delicate and immaculately curved as the real deal Louboutins, but “PROTO” is probably still the best shot you’ve got at “So Kate” on a budget. At least for now. $52.47 (sale price!) and you’re wearing Louboutin for less, girl! Available in various lovely colors and uppers: black, blush, pink, white, red, yellow and natural snake.

Up until recently British designer J.W. Anderson hasn’t been on my fashion radar, but now that I’ve seen his latest womenswear collections, especially the bags and the shoes, I immediately subscribed to his various social media channels in order to never miss out on his future creations again. But let me give you an example of J.W. Anderson’s unique aesthetic first: look at these gorgeous asymmetrical pointy ruffle booties below! I love the boldness of the ruffles and the fact that the asymmetric arrangement forms a forward-facing arrow when both feet are standing next to each other. What I’m not loving though is the price: $840 in retail and even the sale price of $570.99 is still pretty hefty!

Mary Seng from Happily Grey is one of my absolute favorite personal style bloggers at the moment. I love scrolling through her Instagram feed; she has such a great taste in clothes and I adore her sense of style which is modern yet feminine and elegant yet also bold and fearless. To me it feels like Mary isn’t afraid of playing with fashion and taking risks while at the same time still maintaining her unique style and genuineness. One of her recent looks particularly caught my attention; Mary wore a white oversized chunky knit sweater with a beautiful forest green wool skirt which she then paired with a timeless black quilted Chanel bag. I loved this outfit so much that I just had to recreate it on a more accessible level with budget-friendly options. Let me know what you think of my white and green blogger winter look for less.
