Before you start wondering whether these oversized bow sandals somehow look familiar: yes, they are obviously inspired by the highly popular Aminah Abdul Jillil Bow Pumps which we have featured in the past except these here are open-toed which I personally find equally charming. The rest is pretty much spot-on identical; including design, color and material. And while $130 for such a beautiful shoe is not what I’d call exactly expensive, we did manage to find an even more budget-friendly alternative which looks just like the Betsey Johnson version but is $90 cheaper. The only noticeable difference is that the heel on the Betseyvilles is straight while the Betsey Johnsons have more of a flared heel. Anyway, which bow sandal would you choose and why? Cheap or cheaper? Let us know in the comments.

Does the name Rene Caovilla ring a bell with you? If not, it definitely should and if you ask why, then just take a look at the darling shoes below and I’m sure you will all come to agree with me on this. Rene Caovilla is a family-run shoemaking business from Italy with a strong focus on jeweled luxury shoes. And as you can see, you don’t even have to be a high heel lover to be a fan. Their pearl- and bow-adorned thong sandal called “Venus” has been around for more than two decades now and is considered to be one of Caovilla’s most famous signature styles. Too bad you’d have to be pretty rich though because these babies are everything but cheap!

Update (03/20/2016): Spotted another beautiful Rene Caovilla alternative in these pearl- and bow-adorned thong sandals by Blue by Betsey Johnson.

Lara’s Pearls & Rhinestones Bow Thong Sandals

Update (07/29/2015): Just stumbled upon these lovely and super budget-friendly Rene Caovilla Venus dupes by Lara’s and wanted to share them with you. They’re available in either white, silver or gold faux leather and are currently on sale for less than $30! Steal deal alert!

Marc Fisher “Fumi” Pearly Bow Flat Thong Sandals

Luckily, there’s no need to break the bank because these pearly bow flat sandals by Marc Fisher are the next best thing to Rene Caovilla if you’re on a budget. Fisher’s “Fumi” is astonishingly similar to Caovilla’s “Venus” sandals; the only noticeable difference being the missing crystal rim on the sole. But since they’re about one thousand dollars cheaper than the real deal, I wouldn’t complain too much about missing details.

ASOS “Funder” Pearly Bow Flat Thong Sandals

Another cute and slightly cheaper Rene Caovilla Venus alternative would have to be these faux-pearl bow thong sandals by ASOS. These are more of an “inspired by”-kind rather than an identical dupe, but I find them beautiful nonetheless. A similar version named “Florence” is available here.

We have received quite a few reader requests for various Chloé bags lately. And yes, we agree, if there’s ONE thing Chloé is exceptionally good at, it’s their bag range. The French fashion house always manages to incorporate that certain je ne sais quoi-factor that makes every one of their bag styles so desirable. My current personal favorite is the “Drew”, a cute little rounded crossbody bag on a metallic chain. Sadly, Drew’s price tag isn’t quite as cute.

Unita “Wony” Genuine Leather Chain Bag

Update (08/02/2015): If there’d be something like a “Best Bag Dupe“-Award, can we please all agree this one would probably go out to these gorgeous Chloé Drew dupes by Unita?! I am beyond obsessed with the pastel mint and lavender color and love that these are sturdy-looking high quality bags made of genuine cowhide leather. According to the product description, the bags are being manufactured with utmost care in South Korea. I know these babies ain’t cheap with a price tag of over $100, but if one can trust the pictures, the price is definitely worth the investment. The bag comes in 5 colors: black, tan, mint, lavender and taupe grey (what’s your personal fave?).

Of course Forever 21 couldn’t pass up on creating a “Drew”-inspired bag of their own. F21’s “Drew” is not as much of a 1:1 dupe like BagInc’s version, but it is still veeeery similar to the Chloé original. $22.90 and available in either black, tan or cream faux leather.

Lush Parisian Pin Crossbody Chain Leather Bag

If you’re on the lookout for a high-quality Chloé Drew dupe made of genuine leather, then the Parisian Pin Crossbody Chain Bag by Lush Bags is probably best suited for you. The design is spot-on, but you’d have to spend $129.99 on this “steal”. The bigger leather-strap Chloé Drew dupe version is also available by the way (see hereamazon).

Can we all agree that Prada has created the perfect nude barely-there strappy sandal here? I absolutely love this minimalistic high heel. The stiletto and the thin straps look incredibly sexy because they expose large parts of your foot (be sure to have a pedicure before wearing such baring heels) and the shoe itself is a real wardrobe joker as it can be worn with anything in your wardrobe from a dressy dress to a casual jeans. Well, that is as long as you have $690 to spend on them.
