There’s nothing like having a nude pair of shoes to slide into during the warmer times of the year! It’s such a great color especially when it comes in patent and the color is so versatile it can go with TONS of stuff! So, you can see why these Jimmy Choo Phyllis Espadrille Slides are absolutely noteworthy to be featured! I can’t wait to have my ice cold drink next to the pool while admiring my feet with these bad boys on! Yet, retailing at $375 this might break the bank for some, so here is a more affordable option…

J. Litvack “Malta” Espadrille Wedge Slides

Update (05/01/2014): Discovered another Jimmy Choo inspired espadrille wedge! Check out these wedge slides by J. Litvack. They’re not quite as high as the Jimmy Choos, but the look is still very similar to the real deal. Available in black and nude patent leather for $82.95.

Steve Madden “Genisis” Espadrilles

This Steve Madden version has a slightly thicker band and a higher platform than the Jimmy Choo version, which I’m sure not everyone will complain about! And the price isn’t too bad either! Available in nude, black and red patent.

While Self-Portrait certainly had its breakthrough with the Azaelea dress, my personal SP favorite was another dress: Ivy, a gorgeous lace-trim tiered midi dress with a Swiss Dot texture and an open lace-up back. I could probably gush about this dress for the next hour or just simply say that it is *the* perfect summer dress! Playful, feminine, delicate, breezy – what more could you possibly ask for in a summer dress? The only bummer is the price of $625 which seems reasonable when you consider all the details that this dress has to offer, but still, $625 is a lot of money for a lot of people.

Style Bloggers Love Self-Portrait

Personal style bloggers such as Louise Roe (Front Roe by Louise Roe) or Nina (Fashiioncarpet) have been spotted wearing a Self-Portrait Ivy Lace-Trim Open-Back Midi Dress.

Warehouse Lace Tiered Dress

When I first saw this lace tiered midi dress at Warehouse, it instantly reminded me of the Ivy dress even though it clearly has some obvious differences. I wouldn’t call it a dupe, but the whole concept of the dress, which is available in either black, white or rust by the way, is definitely at least inspired by Self-Portrait’s whimsical aesthetic. Unfortunately, this Ivy look-alike dress ain’t cheap either ($176!), but at least it’s still almost $450 cheaper than the real deal.

I’m one of those people who-when traveling through airports-will always wear heels (you never know if Mr. Right is flying the friendly skies as well). I can’t always do a 5 inch towering platform though; that’s why this leopard wedge by Mr. Christian Louboutin is perfect for such occasions! Some style and height to go along with a comfy and simple yet sexy outfit. My travel companion? A stiff drink and pretzels instead of peanuts, please. No thank you, Miss, I’d wear my “Peanuts”, not eat them. ūüėČ

Kate Spade New York “Amory” Round Toe Wedge Pumps

Update (05/15/2016): Just spotted another Christian Louboutin Peanut alternative! This calf hair animal print wedge by Kate Spade is surely not a steal at $350, but it is still $495 (!) cheaper than the real deal, so I had to add them to the list.

Talbots “Porsha” Leopard Haircalf Wedges

Update (08/27/2015): Didn’t really expect to find another Louboutin Peanut dupe after such a long time, but doesn’t “Porsha” by Talbots look strangely familiar to you?

Ivanka Trump Linear3 Leopard Wedge Pumps

The designers at Ivanka Trump have virtually copied the Loubutin “Peanut” down to its shell! I must admit I do like the leopard print better on this one and I’m completely nutty about the $150 price tag.

Alright, let’s talk backpacks. They’ve been kinda huge last year. And probably will be huge again this year, too. While admittedly this trend has totally gone past me because I’m just more of a handbag person and because backpacks generally make me feel like I’m 10 and in school again, if I had to choose a backpack, I’d totally rock this chain-trimmed beauty by Stella McCartney which is basically her iconic “Falabella” as a rucksack edition. Just as pretty and just as expensive. Le sigh!

Forever 21 Faux Leather Chained Backpack

Update (08/03/2015): Since all the previously posted Falabella backpack alternatives seem to have sold out, I am happy to report that we were able to find two more Falabella backpack steals. Here we have an amazing, almost spot-on Stella McCartney dupe by Forever 21 which is available in either black, cream or burgundy faux leather for a very budget-friendly $32.90. If you’re a fan, better be fast, I’m sure these babies will be sold out soon as well.

Nasty Gal “Aliandra” Chain Backpack

Well, well. Hats off to Nasty Gal who did a pretty good job at bringing us the “Falabella” on a budget. Their “Aliandra” backpack is similarly pretty, but retails for a wallet-friendly $60 instead. Grab yours now and be the coolest kid on the fashion schoolyard! Nobody has to know it was only $60. A tan version named “Dillon” is available herels.

Today we want to try a new feature here on InTheirCloset: »Splurge or Save?«. While doing our research for the Real vs. Steal posts, we often stumble upon very similar items that have varying price points, but are too close together by price to really fit into the Real vs. Steal section, so that’s why we came up with the »Splurge or Save?« category, where you can decide by poll whether you’d rather splurge or save on a certain item. And the first edition of »Splurge or Save?« starts off with pointy nude pumps and tan buckle sandals. The possible savings here add up to $175 for the nude pumps and $87 for the tan buckle sandals. What do you think? Which items would you save on and where would you go all out and rather splurge instead? Tell us in the comments!
