And here we go again with yet another Valentino bag from the ever so popular “Rockstud“-family. I love the simple design of this studded tote! Imagine how good this bag would look against an all-white outfit. It’s the perfect bag to get you through a summer weekend! But, ouch, the price tag of $1.595 is a little heavy!

Inzi Studded Border Tote

Inzi‘s “Studded Border Tote” comes in a different shade of blue (which I prefer, btw), but everything else like the shape and the studded details are practically identical to the Valentino handbag. And the best thing is the price of $92.90 which is less than 10% of the designer tote. Yay!

I wonder if – one fine day – I will be the happy owner of a pair of Alexander McQueen heels. I would LOVE to, but thinking that his shoes go for more than 1k per pair, I somehow doubt this is ever going to happen. Not with that kind of budget at least. Anyone out there bothering to tell me the secret of getting rich quick? My shoe addiction refuses to wait any longer to be satisfied.

UPDATE (05/27/2010): If you’re wary of high heels, try these “Faithful” knockoffs by Madden Girl. They’re a bit bulky, but the low heel makes them that much more practical for day-to-day wear. The price ain’t too bad either.

I love and hate Steve Madden. Hate because his collection is mostly based on other people’s creativity and LOVE because it makes being fashionable on a budget SO much easier without having to compromise the designer look of a shoe. These Alexander McQueen knockoffs are almost identical, the only thing that’s different is that the zipper isn’t a skull shape, but everything else could pass as the original. The ankle boots are currently on pre-order and will be ready to ship in approx. 4 weeks. However I wouldn’t wait too long to order as this style is probably one of the first to sell out.

So we’re back to Alaïa! These shoes might seem familiar because we’ve already written about the lace-up version of this hot mesh cut-out bootie a few months ago. And surprise, surprise, I’m totally in love with this Alaïa style as well! But as usual there’s no way I could afford it. Boohoo!

Real vs. Steal – Zara Flat Jelly Sandals

by Irina on February 16, 2014

UPDATE: This post has been updated on February 16, 2014. Scroll down to see the new add.

Chances are you’ve already seen these rhinestoned two-tone t-strap flats by ZARA somewhere. Maybe you saw them on a style blog (or many, as I have) or maybe you spotted them on someone else’s feet out in the streets last summer; you might even have contemplated getting them yourself while perusing the ZARA store for the latest fashion finds. I’m not sure whether ZARA designed these with some other designer shoe in mind (not that I know of) since they like to “borrow” from the latest runway styles. Anyway, these t-strap flats became quite the hot seller and sold out at full-price in no time.

Bamboo Lynna 01 Rhinestone Studded Strappy Flats

UPDATE (05/22/2013): Since these strappy Bamboo flats were so popular with our readers, I wanted to let you know that they’re now available at Amazon for a very affordable $25.99!

Et voilà! Bamboo brings us a perfectly finde substitute in faux suede leather for under $30! Is that amazing or what? Love the sandals, love the price! I think I even prefer the Bamboo flats over the ZARA version since I really don’t like having gummy plastic material cover my feet (even though the ZARA sandals also don’t look quite like a jelly flat to me). Anyway, better get them now before these sell out as well and so you’re ready to rock a pair of super cute summer shoes when warmer weather comes around.

Back in April, we received a reader request from Anais asking us to find a look-4-less option for these gorgeous side-buckle booties by Giuseppe Zanotti from the SS2013 collection. At this time there weren’t any look-a-likes of these Zanotti ankle boots available, so I told Anais to wait a few months because I was sure that eventually I would find something suitable for her. I kept her email in my “open requests”-folder and yesterday was the day I could finally check off Anais’ request because I managed to find 2 great look for less alternatives. Woohoo! I hope you like my steal finds, dear Anais!
