It’s finally summer and my feet are screaming for a summer vacation! These floral lace espadrilles by Valentino would be the perfect summer shoes because they’re flat (= comfortable) and the lace fabric makes them not only super stylish but also super airy which means no sweaty feet on hot summer days. Too bad they’re probably the most expensive pair of espadrilles I’ve ever seen (well, besides those from Chanel, of course).

Stuart Weitzman “Meshuga” Lace Espadrille Sandals

UPDATE (03/07/2014): While these lace espadrilles by Stuart Weitzman are certainly far away from being a steal at $186.99, they are still much cheaper than the Valentinos and quite pretty, too, don’t you agree? Available in black, gold and ivory lace.

XOXO “Kara” Lace Espadrille Flats

Et voilà, here you go with a super similar and super affordable Valentino look-a-like by XOXO. The lace fabric isn’t quite as delicate, but at $24.94 (sale price!) you can’t expect the quality of real chantilly lace. Also available in navy lace.

Another great alternative would be these espadrilles by Soludos. They’re a little more expensive than the XOXO version, but the lace on these also looks significantly better in return. Also available in off-white.

I remember Rag & Bone most notably for their amazing shoes, but after seeing this cool yet preppy yet sexy plunging v-neck sweater here, I think I might have to start taking a closer look at their clothing line as well. What I really like about this sweater is the juxtaposition of the preppy design against the super sexy deep v-neck. But would I be willing to spend $395 on this – admittedly very stylish – sweater? Probably not.

While I never really warmed up to the wedge sneaker trend started by Isabel Marant, I must admit that I really liked Marant’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection. Especially the shoes! I even considered getting the studded “Caleen” booties pictured below, but since I can’t afford designer shoes full price, I had to wait until they went on sale and well, try getting size 9 Isabel Marant shoes on sale. Absolutely no luck for me this time!

Signore Giuseppe Zanotti, you are killing me with your shoes! I constantly find myself craving his fabulous Italian shoes, but the accompanying price tags just don’t sit well with me. For instance, I absolutely adore this nubuck leather peep-toe front-zip bootie, but even the sale price makes me want to faint. $671.25? I don’t think that’s going to happen.

Why is it that so many people imagine themselves to be Cleopatra reincarnated? I’m thinking it’s because of the stylish clothes, hip make-up and the unmatched beauty and brains, of course. So for all you modern day, wanna be Roman-Egyptian empresses, these lovely gold sandals by Jimmy Choo clearly capture the mood of 50 B.C. perfectly! And for $850, they’ll give your wallet something to “chew” on. Well… more like taking a huge bite out of your wallet – ouch!
