Seems like we can’t catch a break from satin slides at the moment and to be honest with you: I don’t really mind! There’s just something so effortlessly chic about slipping into a pair of delicate satin mules, don’t you agree? A few days ago, I was looking through the newest arrivals at my favorite online shops when I saw a picture of Dolce Vita’s “Henry” Cross-Strap Satin Mules. The design seemed instantly familiar to me, but I couldn’t put my finger on the designer inspiration right away. So I kept on browsing while my brain was doing its usual shoe memory scanning process in the background. And suddenly it just hit me that the Dolce Vita design was a lovely hybrid of Gucci’s “Webby” High Heel Mule from last year and Gianvito Rossi’s “Barth” Sandal Slides which we have already featured here in a previous blog post. Copycat math has striked once again! And I must admit: $595 + $645 = $130 is exactly the kind of shopping math that I like!

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!

Alright, I’ll just come out and say it: I like big bows and I cannot lie! And I’m not going to deny! OK, OK, enough with the rhymes and musical references, let’s cut straight to the chase: this suede d’orsay pump by newcomer Aminah Abdul Jillil with the oversized bow on the ankle is a picture-perfect example why I can’t resist anything with a big, fat bow on it. Take a moment and let the beauty of this shoe unfold before your eyes. Don’t you just love how bold and feminine this pump is? Especially in red suede? AH-MAZING! And the best thing is that it ain’t too expensive either: $215 is a solid price for a shoe this pretty if you ask me, but if you can’t justify spending that much on such a statement shoe, we’ve come up with a few budget-friendly alternatives that will give you the same look a little down below.

First ones in line would have to be these lovely side bow pumps by Jessica Buurman.

If you like it a little more girly, then this bow-adorned pump by Mojo Moxy might be the right fit instead. The bow on these is more feminine and less abstract than on the Aminah Abdul Jillil pumps, but the overall look is still the same. Also, I’m totally obsessed with the green color (♥)!

When it comes to sunglasses I have no strict budget policy because I’m slightly obsessed with sunglasses and both own designer shades priced upwards of $200 as well as super cheap $5 sunnies I randomly picked up at souvenir shops and pretty much everything in between. I like to have a large variety to choose from and will often buy designer dupes first before I later decide to splurge on the real deal if I happen to fall in love with a particular designer style. Opting for cheap sunglasses is often a smart choice because you don’t want to be constantly worrying about breaking your favorite $300 designer shades or getting them stolen at the beach or a fun festival weekend. Now let’s talk about these fabulous Céline sunglasses. I think I have confessed my love for Céline eyewear before and these “Tilda” sunnies are my latest obsession! I feel like I’ve mostly worn round cat-eye shapes lately, so I’m craving a change and these super square sunnies are a refreshing new style and would be a great addition to my ever-growing sunglass collection! I just love how big and masculine they are yet they seem to be universally flattering on almost any head shape. They definitely have the potential to become my latest pair of designer sunglasses. But before I spend $250 on them, first I’ll need to figure out whether this is just a momentary fling or an eternal love that could last a lifetime.

Christian Louboutin has done a lot of extreme and fetish-like shoes in the last couple years, but my favorites would have to be Louboutin’s “simpler”, more classic creations. Just like the “Alta Rita” pictured below. A paramount example for a perfect evening/bridal shoe: sparkly and glamorous yet not too distracting and with a feminine and elegant shape and a heel that is high but not impossibly so. I absolutely love how Kate Bosworth paired hers with a beautiful white Chanel frock. Such a classy look!

Ivanka Trump “Galantz” Slingback Sandals

Clearly, not everyone can afford to buy Louboutins, so here you go with an almost just as fabulous alternative by Ivanka Trump which will cost you roughly a fifth of the original Louboutin heels. Apart from a few minor details and minus the red luscious sole that Christian Louboutin is so famous for, the look of our budget-friendly Loubie version is pretty much identical. You like?
