I know we’re a galaxy away from summer yet, so it might not be the best time to write about summery gladiator sandals in the middle of winter, but when this very sandal has been designed by la Grande Dame of French fashion, Madame Isabel Marant, you kind of have no choice but to post it. We had quite a few reader requests for the studded Lester strappy block heel sandal below and it took us a while to come up with a few budget-frienldy alternatives, but finally, here they are…

Seychelles “Hope So” Caged Gladiator Sandals

UPDATE (03/07/2014): Stumbled upon this fabulous Marant-inspired gladiator sandal by Seychelles. Available in either tan or black leather for $110.

Mollini “Jalis” Studded Sandals

First up is this studded sandal by Mollini. It’s not an identical look-a-like, but similar enough to be mistaken for Marant, I think. Plus, it’s on sale and available in black, too!

Dolce Vita “Jerica” Studded Gladiator Sandals

Another alternative are these gladiator sandals by Dolce Vita. I wouldn’t consider them a dupe, but they do have a very similar look to the Marant shoes, wouldn’t you agree? Also available in other colors.

Sam Edelman “Dion” Stud Sandals

This one by Sam Edelman is also more of an inspired-by option rather than a full-blown knockoff. But the look and feel reminds me of the Marant sandal above, so I decided to include it in the list.

So who wouldn’t feel like a total star while wearing these star-studded high heels by Giuseppe Zanotti? I know I would. These gorgeous suede stiletto sandals are from Zanotti’s Fall/Winter collection 2013 and definitely belonged to my top 5 Zanotti heels from that season. But OH.MY.LORD! $2.495? What an astronomical price for a pair of heels! There’s absolutely no way I could afford these!

Chinese Laundry “Juggernaut” Star-Embellished Caged High Heel Sandals

Luckily, Chinese Laundry comes to the rescue by bringing us the starred Giuseppe Zanotti designer look for roughly 5% of the originals’ price. Woot, woot, absolute steal alert! The arch on these Chinese Laundry high heels differs slightly (and therefore is probably also way more comfortable to wear I’d guess), but the rest of the design is pretty much identical. Available in black and blush suede leather for $128.

I’m always a little torn when it comes to MICHAEL Michael Kors because Kors often gets “inspired” by his designer colleagues from the high-end department yet still tries to sell his designer-inspired shoes and bags for what I consider a pretty steep price. However, the “Selma” large top zip satchel really stole my heart by storm. The luxe-looking saffiano leather reminds me of Prada and the pop of pink would be a great way to incorporate some color into any outfit. All in all, it’s simply a really beautiful and feminine bag! A bag that costs $358 unfortunately! Le sigh!

So who doesn’t love a good lasercut high heel sandal? I know I do and it seems like fashion bloggers love ‘em just as much. These B Brian Atwood black suede beauties are absolutely gorgeous, don’t you agree? I love them in both the black and the bright purple hue. However the $425 price tag is a little too steep for me.

Okay, so let’s talk black and white stripes… again. This time I have a style blogger look 4 less for you which is inspired by Blair from the ever so gorgeous blog Atlantic-Pacific. Seriously, I’m in love with this girl! Not only does she have an impeccable sense of style, she also seems to have quite the obsession with monochrome stripes which makes her that much more loveable to me. I can relate, Blair, I can relate! – But anyway, how do you like my Blair inspired stripey b&w outfit?
