There are only very few things that are quite as timeless and long-lasting as a tailor-cut wool coat. When it comes to making beautiful, classic outerwear such as coats and jackets Burberry Prorsum is undoubtedly the top dog. Yes, a real Burberry is pricey, but considering you’ll keep that coat for 10-20 years without it ever going out of style the cost-per-wear becomes staggeringly affordable.

Karen Millen Military Great Coat

UPDATE (10/21/2010): Although this military coat by Karen Millen is a rather costly alternative, it’s still only 1/5 of the originals’ price.

Oasis Military Coat

UPDATE (10/21/2010): Also found a great Burberry alternative in khaki by Oasis.

ASOS Belted Midi Military Jacket

If you can’t afford the real thing, but still want the Burberry look & feel, this military jacket by ASOS is a dead ringer for the Burberry coat. Belt included. Gotta love ASOS for bringing us Burberry on a budget.

“Badgley Mischka, Badgley Mischka,” (insert echo sound for effect). Oh how I love to say Badgley Mischka over and over again. It just sounds so rich! OK, back to my task at hand-writing about these adorable blush satin pumps with pearl detailing by (wait for it)… Badgley Mischka! These should totally be accompanying all you winter blushing brides (11/11/11 anyone?) down the aisle to your beloved! But whenever the big day happens, for just $200, you get to say your shoes are by (I’m sorry cannot help myself), Badgley Mischka. OMG, tell me that doesn’t sound aristocratic and expensive? Now, if you could only afford a wedding gown by this designer duo.

RSVP “Olive” Platform Pumps

But if you’re a bride on a tight budget and $200 is budgeted for ice sculptures or if you’re more the traditional bride and prefer your bridal heels white or ivory, then may I suggest you place your rsvp for these remarkable clones to the aforementioned heels (I could have said it but didn’t). Evening shoe line, RSVP has done a great job in capturing the same details as the Badgley Mischka’s (last time, promise). Something borrowed, something blue, some heels on a budget for you! Available in ivory, black, navy & grey satin.

The whole over-the-knee boot trend first started somewhen last year and French fashion house Lanvin was not only one of the first adaptors but also had a few of the best looking OTK/thigh-high boots out there. Case in point: the high heeled boots below. I love how simple yet detailed they are. What I don’t love is the astronomical price though! And the fact that they’re from last season and hence nowhere to be found anymore.

The OTK trend is still going strong in 2010 and if you’re daring enough to give this trend a try why not letting Vince Camuto give you the Lanvin look for 1/10 of the price? You can choose to wear these boots folded open or, if you prefer the traditional look, keep them folded over. Available in black leather or charcoal suede.

I proclaimed my love for cognac boots in my last Boot of the Day post, but I just came across these kickass boots by Vince Camuto while browsing Endless and just had to share this with you. Aren’t they absolutely perfect? Definitely one of the best I’ve seen this year.
