I haven’t written about Barbara Bui shoes for a long time, but these shiny black python print platform high heels definitely deserve a mention. At first they looked Alexander Wang-ish to me due to their sexy yet sporty vibe which is a signature style of Wang. I was quite surprised to learn that these are actually one of Bui’s creations. What didn’t surprise me though? The steep price tag of $1.375! Because Barbara Bui + that kind of “Made in Italy“-craftmanship comes at a price.

MIA Limited Edition “Rocco” Platform Sandals

Most of us won’t be able to afford the Barbara Bui heels, but with a little saving we might get the second best thing to the real deal which are these fabulous Bui look-a-likes by MIA Limited Edition. They’re not exactly what I’d consider a steal at $229 and I really wish they’d kept the pale pink insole, but the overall look is so staggeringly similar that I really don’t care too much. And since white heels are going to be huge this year, these are also available in white.

Chloé has created quite a few “It“-bags in the last 10 years, but it’s been rather quiet on their bag front lately. Well, that’s not entirely sure because there’s one bag that is currently making the rounds and getting a lot of hype and exposure – the “Alice” tote, a large two-tone bag that has the shape of a classic doctor’s bag. I’m usually not a big fan of colorblocking on bags, but this one I find very pretty. I really like its classic elegance and clean lines and the gold hardware gives this bag that extra oomph. But this beauty comes at a price. At $2.295, to be exact.

So you might’ve already heard that “leather is the new denim” this fall. Which is true, but leather is on trend pretty much every fall season. We’re used to seeing leather jackets, leather shoes and leather pants by now, but what about leather dresses? Is it possible to pull off a full-on leather frock without looking some fetish S&M freak? Well, I think it can be done. With this leather dress by Marc by Marc Jacobs for example. It doesn’t show too much skin with its high neck and the 3/4 sleeves yet is short enough to still look sexy, cool and edgy.

Jennifer Lopez Faux-Leather Ponte Sheath Dress

If you’re on the fence regarding the wearability of leather dresses and/or don’t want to spend a fortune on such a special item of clothing, check out this faux-leather frock by Jennifer Lopez which is a great alternative to the Marc by Marc Jacobs dress. The sleeves on this one are slightly longer and the faux-leather fabric looks a little dull compared to the real leather MJ dress, but otherwise the design is almost identical. Plus, this dress will cost you only $42 (sale price)!

So what could I write about these t-strap heels by Jimmy Choo? They are super pretty, of course, and I love the lasercut detailing and the cute little gold buckles on the side. I also love how actress Zoe Saldana paired the blush suede version of these with a grey crop top and full midi-skirt. Such a chic look, right? Too bad these are a) super expensive and b) pretty much sold out everywhere.

A few days ago I spotted this high heel at Steve Madden and was instantly reminded of the Jimmy Choos above. The overall design is almost identical with a few slight differences here and there. The heel and the t-strap of the Madden version are a little slimmer which makes the whole shoe in my opinion more elegant and sleek. Plus, the Steve Madden version costs $129.95 whereas you would have to pay more than $700 for the Choos and we’re talking sale price here.

Oh, Giuseppe Zanotti, and here we go again. I’m seriously crushing on all of his recent designs lately. And how could I not? Just look at these super sexy t-strap sandals! I love the uber-glam oversized chain-embellishments (so on trend!) and the interestingly designed heel (or rather heel position). Also love how model Joan Smalls rocked her white Zanotti chain heels with a crisp white mini dress. Such a flawless look! Wish I’d had the funds to put some Zanottis in my shoe closet. But oh well, just another dream shoe I guess…

Steve Madden are certainly having a moment with Giuseppe Zanotti lately as they tend to find quite a lot of “inspiration” in his footwear. “MAGNETIK” might not be an exact dupe as the chain embellishments are significantly more toned down and the heel is differently shaped, too, but overall the look is still very Zanotti-ish. $109.95 and they are all yours (use the promo code above and save 15% on your order)!
