Sick of wedges yet? No? Good! Because as I mentioned in a previous post, wedges just seem to be THE shoe of the moment. Perfect for spring, comfortable and retro stylish. Take a look at these T-Strap Cork Wedges by Chloé: I think t-straps are so flattering on the foot and I love the nude color and leather piping. A really timeless shoe, to be sure, but also really expensive.

Rosegold “Cara” Cork Wedges

Man, I am loving me some Rosegold right now. They just keep cranking out the knockoffs, but what makes them so awesome is that their “steal” shoes look great. It’s obvious where Rosegold got their inspiration for the “Cara” from. Nude leather, leather piping, platform – all the details are there to make this shoe an excellent knockoff of the Chloé T-Straps. Wear with a floral summer dress or shorts and a flouncy white blouse.

Budget Look – Pretty in Pink

by Irina on January 6, 2011

While doing my daily web browsing I discovered this beautiful draped dress at GoJane and decided I would do a budget look around it. It’s a very matchy-matchy, super girly approach, but I really like the femininity and delicacy of the outfit. The whole look would cost you a very fair $126.70.

In the past few seasons, nude colored shoes have greatly grown in popularity, if not considered a necessity in everyone’s closet. These Giuseppe Zanotti Bejeweled Suede Ankle Strap Sandals sport hardware embellishments such as studs displaying an avant-garde flair while the blush tone balances the overall look. I truly idolize Giuseppe Zanotti because each season is constantly evolving and each shoe has its own individual appeal. But the fact that the price is unknown implies that it is obviously beyond expensive and in addition these sandals are already sold out.

Dolce Vita “Kitz” Sandals

Whenever I am looking for an innovative or designer-inspired shoe, Dolce Vita is my essential go to brand. These “Kitz” sandals are a spot on example of what Dolce Vita stands for, not to mention that these sandals look almost exactly like the ones by Giuseppe Zanotti. I love the chunky heel and the crystals embedded among the back. These are available in blush or black suede.

I discovered Ash only last December when I was looking for the perfect knockoff of a pair of Martin Margiela sandals that I had been in love with for the better part of a year. Aptly enough, it was InTheirCloset that eventually led me to the Holy Land, so to speak. Ash shoes are really well made and definitely have a strong point of view. I love these “Lovely” Studded Wedge Sandals, for instance. I will say that they look more fall than summer to me, but there are already so many little outfits dancing in my head at the mere thought of owning these. The rich black is hot, as is the harness and studding. Here’s the thing, though: while Ash shoes are priced rather “reasonably”, they are still out of my sad little budget.

N.Y.L.A. “Placido” Stud Wedges

If you, too, have a mopey little budget, but love the look of the Ash wedge sandals, we may have found just the shoe. These “Placido” wedges by N.Y.L.A. look basically identical to the originals with a slightly less exaggerated heel. I’m fairly certain that once on no one would be able to tell the difference. I know there’s not a drastic difference in price, but just consider all the things you could buy with that extra hundo! Available in black and tan.

Luichiny “Pass Ive” Studded Wedges

Now here’s a slightly different take on the studded wedge, albeit an equally as ferocious one. These “Pass Ive” wedges by Luichiny boast a super high wedge and a cord bottom and we still have the awesome harness and the studs. Even more affordable than then the N.Y.L.A’s, these are also available in a ton of colors (and by ton I mean 4: black, grey, camel & cognac suede).

Not Rated “Hot Spot” Stud Wedge Sandals

If you’re a blingy kind of girl (aka the more embellishment, the better!) then these “Hot Spot” wedge sandals by Not Rated might just be for you. The general feel and shape of the sandal is the same as our Ash pick but there’s a lot more gold studding and detailing. These are also a true steal at only $33. Available in black, tan, grey & red suede.

Liliana “Misana” Gladiator Studded Wedges

If you’re like me you sometimes look at your closet and wonder how in the world you managed to amass so many pairs of black shoes. Well then who are we to suggest you buy yet another pair? If you’re loving the look of the Ash wedges but were wishing for a different/more summer friendly color, then wish granted! I love the cognac color of these Liliana “Misana” Gladiator Studded wedges. It feels light for summer but rich for fall. And guess what? This is our cheapest pick of the bunch! These retail for only $21.97!
