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!

Now if this back-bow d’Orsay pump by everyone’s favorite French shoe designer, Monsieur Christian Louboutin, isn’t absolute shoe perfection, I don’t know what is! I mean, just look at it! Perfectly-shaped arch, a nice, subtle platform with a luscious red sole, an almost 5″ stiletto heel and the loveliest tied bow on the back. In a word, the perfect symbiosis of girly and grown-up.

Kate Spade New York “Izzie” Back-Bow d’Orsay Pumps

Update (05/12/2016): Kate Spade New York came out with a second CL Dos Noeud inspired shoe style named “Izzie”. Available in various colors with an either leather or satin upper, these beauties will cost you a not so steal-worthy $328, but that’s still better than $1.045, right?

Nina “Mileena” Bow Back Sandals

Update (01/29/2016): Stumbled upon these adorable bow back heels by Nina and they instantly reminded me of the Louboutins above. Available in various beautiful colors and uppers.

Update (05/09/2014): Also discovered these gorgeous Christian Louboutin dupes at Milanoo. Love the price, too!

Kate Spade “Chrissie” Back-Bow Dress Sandals

And while I’d love to invest in the Louboutins above, I have to face reality and accept the fact that they’re way out of my price league. That’s why I made it my mission to find a similar shoe for less money. Et voil√†, Kate Spade delivered! At $373.50 (sale price!), these cute bow heels are from being a “steal”, but they are about half the price of the Loubis while looking suspiciously similar to the CL Dos Noeud pumps. FYI: I wouldn’t mind having both versions in my closet. ūüėČ Available in deep red satin or black suede.

Blair from Atlantic-Pacific is hands down one of my absolute favorite personal style bloggers and I think she has such an impeccable sense of style. Whenever I visit her blog, I always find an abundance of outfit inspiration and rarely see a look that I do not love. While browsing for some new outfit ideas yesterday, I happened to discover this beautiful summer outfit where Blair wore a striped off-the-shoulder top with white short overalls by Madewell, tan Chlo√© espadrille wedges, a cute straw boater and cool Ray-Ban Clubmaster shades. I was so in love with Blair’s French Chic summer ensemble that I decided to recreate her look on a more budget-friendly level. What do you think of my alternative picks? Close enough? Let me know.

Time for some Chlo√© goodness again. The French fashion house really is on a roll with their newest line of “It” bags everyone is lusting after. We’ve already covered the “Drew” and “Faye” and now it’s time to talk about the “Hudson” which is actually a whole set of different Chlo√© bags coming in different shapes and sizes, all of them exuding that iconic Chlo√© boho-vibe with their tassels and fringes. And yes, sure, this is undeniably a gorgeous bag, but can you imagine spending more than $2.000 for this sweet little mini bag?

Lush Leather Saddle Tassel Crossbody Bag

Update (05/11/2016): Stumbled upon the first genuine leather Chloé Hudson dupe today! By Lush and available in either black or brown for $139.99.

Sole Society “Exie” Mini Fringe Shoulder Bag

Luckily, I stumbled upon this cute Chlo√© alternative by Sole Society which will give you the coveted Chlo√© boho look for a whole lot less. Sole Society’s version is a little larger than the real deal Chlo√©, but I actually prefer that because I can’t see my wallet, phone, keys and lipstick fitting comfortably in the Hudson mini bag above. “Exie” is available in cognac brown or black faux leather (with genuine suede tassels) for $59.95.

BagInc “Renee” Faux Leather Fringe Bag

Deal: Use promo code “SPRINGBAG” to get 15% off your entire order!

BagInc has also a good looking, spot-on Chlo√© Hudson faux leather dupe available in various beautiful colors for the budget-friendly price of $69. You can even save some more (15%!) by using the promo code above. FYI: A few weeks ago I received an email from a reader who was having issues with her BagInc order (long order processing and unsatisfactory customer service), so please proceed with caution, prepare yourself for a possibly longer shipping process (products are being shipped from Hong Kong) and if nothing helps, there’s always the possibility to file a dispute with PayPal or your credit card company. I own a couple of (genuine leather) BagInc bags and was always very pleased with both the shipping duration as well as the product quality, but that’s been quite a while ago now, so I can’t fully vouch for the company at this point and thus wanted you to be aware of this.

Chanel espadrilles, round 3. This time we’re showing you the leather version (see the mesh and canvas version here). The top color combination is my personal favorite! Perfect shoes for summer, don’t you agree? I’ve said it before: despite the hype surrounding these shoes I still really like these cute espadrilles, but there’s no way I would spend so much money on a pair of espadrilles even though I can imagine that the leather version is the most durable of all the three variations. But still, $550? Um, no, thank you.
