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.

I love (almost) everything coming from Alexander Wang, but shelling out $750 for a bag is neither reasonable to me nor anywhere in my budget (I’m also more of a shoes girl).

Count on Steve Madden to deliver. His “B-ZIPCROSS” shoulder bag is a good look 4 less alternative. The bag comes in either black, grey, raspberry or white and is currently on sale for $148.50 (was $198). Yay!

One really has to love the playfulness that is Miu Miu. How lovely are these colorful crystal-encrusted pumps? Absolutely gorgeous, aren’t they? Total statement shoes that would liven up any bland outfit of jeans and a black blazer. However, these lovely shoes aren’t only beautiful but expensive, too. Your alternatives? Well, you could either start a time-consuming DIY-project or buy one of the cute Miu Miu look-a-like options we’ve found below…

Jeffrey Campbell “Dulce” Embellished Pointed-Toe Pumps

First one up is this almost identical Miu Miu dupe by Jeffrey Campbell. There aren’t quite as many yellow stones on this pump, but the rest is pretty much spot-on. Not exactly a steal at $195 but still almost $800 less than the original.

Another great alternative is this crystal-adorned pointy pump which I discovered at Jessica Buurman. It, too, looks very similar to the Miu Mius but costs only $139!

When I first saw the “Bellantomod” Lace-Up Back Open-Toe Booties by Manolo Blahnik, I couldn’t really believe that these are supposed to be Manolos because the designer usually goes for a more elegant and timeless style direction. This high heel though screamed Tom Ford or Gucci to me. It’s a very sexy and stylish shoe; I love the lacing detail in the open back of this so-called “shootie”. As you can see from the pictures below, Vicky B. is also a fan. And who can blame her? However, not everyone of us has VB’s shopping budget, so we came up with a list of possible Manolo alternatives for you.

Et voilà, bebe to the rescue! Being a pretty much spot-on dupe of the Manolos, the “Matison” is just as sexy as the real deal and with a price tag of $139, you won’t have to break the bank in order to afford it. But you better be fast because some sizes are beginning to sell out already.

Chinese Laundry “Jinxy” High Heel Booties

Another budget-friendly alternative and currently on sale, too, are these stylish heels from Chinese Laundry. They’re not a 1:1 dupe or anything, but they’ll still give you the same sexy look. Make sure to check out the insanely gorgeous cobalt blue suede version which is my absolute favorite!

This celebrity look of Miranda Kerr isn’t exactly new or anything, but I have always loved this classy outfit of hers, so when I saw the elegant pencil dress from Oasis a few days ago, I knew it’d be the perfect budget dress alternative for Miranda’s body-con Victoria Beckham frock. Do you like my take on this celebrity look 4 less?
