Let me tell you: if you have a chance to get your hands on a pair of Thierry Lasry sunglasses at a reasonable price, do NOT miss it! I bought a pair very similar to the ones shown below this Spring and they’ve quickly become my absolute favorite to wear during the summer. The quality is superb (very sturdy material, made in France) and they have a very classic, timeless design that will never go out of style. Just take a look at how cool they are on style blogger Chiara Ferragni. So fierce, right? However, retail prices for Thierry Lasry sunglasses are ridiculously high, so I would recommend buying this brand during a sale (I was super lucky and got mine for 50% off!).

Mango Cat-Eye Sunglasses

If you’ve fallen in love with the cat-eye sunnies above, but can’t wait for sale season to come, here’s a great alternative I discovered while browsing through Mango. The design is almost identical, but these stylish cateye sunglasses here can be purchased for less than 10% of the real deal. Score!

Menswear is ultimately my favorite trend, but the femininity of these Chloé wedges is irresistible. Though they may have a feminine touch, you can wear them in a multitude of ways including menswear aesthetic. The bow tie adds just the right amount of dynamism between it and the design, without distracting from the simplistic beauty of the shoe. This would be a very fashion-worthy splurge if they were in my budget. As I am not able to invest in Chloé wedges, the steal below is a splendid alternative.

Jeffrey Campbell “Nueva” Studded Ankle Wrap Wedges

Steve Madden “ANGUILLA” Wedge Sandals

Steve Madden earns the role of a hero when it comes to imitating designs from very lavish labels, hence Chloé. First off, I have to mention my affinity for these shoes because I simply cannot find a single flaw about them. The wedge height is stellar, and so is every other detail! They are lacking the bow detail, but the buckle makes a wonderful substitute and really adds a casual element. If I have yet to convince you, check them out in a variety of tones such as natural, black, and brown.

Got a little bit of a rocker-girl inside but don’t know how to express it? Try wearing these Balenciaga sandals and you’ll exude just enough edge while maintaining a polished look. Looking for the best way to pull them off? If you have long legs, try a black pencil skirt with a slightly longer hem in back and if you’re petite or curvy, wear some black leggings like Rihanna (below) with an off-the-shoulder knit dress. But the most important accessory is confidence, and to rock these – you gotta show it. While these shoes are amazing, if they don’t fit your budget, scroll down cause the steal we found is a ringer for the original.

Kelsi Dagger “Cameo” Slingback Sandals

Update (08/15/2012): Just came across another Balenciaga look-a-like by Kelsi Dagger which is currently on sale for under $90. Available in various colors and textures, too (my favorites: leopard print and black/white spotted).

Strategia “Alicia” Open Toe Slingbacks

Nope, you’re not seeing double. This pair by Strategia is actually quite a bit less than the Balenciagas above. What’s keeping you from making them yours? These architectural sandals will look artsy and modern with some red nail polish or go mysterious with a darker one. Either way, just let your shoes make the introduction and you can take over from there.

Christian Louboutin has done a lot of extreme and fetish-like shoes in the last couple years, but my favorites would have to be Louboutin’s “simpler”, more classic creations. Just like the “Alta Rita” pictured below. A paramount example for a perfect evening shoe: sparkly and glamorous yet not too distracting and with a feminine and elegant shape and a heel that is high but not impossibly so. I absolutely love how Kate Bosworth paired hers with a beautiful white Chanel frock. Such a classy look!

Adrianna Papell “Fiji” Embellished Slingback Pumps

Update (03/28/2016): When I first saw these lovely rhinestone embellished slingback pumps by Adrianna Papell, they immediately reminded me of the Alta Rita Louboutins above. They’re not an identical dupe, but the overall look is still the same. Available on sale for $74.87 in various colors.

Ivanka Trump “Galantz” Slingback Sandals

Clearly, not everyone can afford to buy Louboutins, so here you go with an almost just as fabulous alternative by Ivanka Trump which will cost you roughly a fifth of the original Louboutin heels. Apart from a few minor details and minus the red luscious sole that Christian Louboutin is so famous for, the look of our budget-friendly Loubie version is pretty much identical. You like?

In the last few years, I always felt attracted to these oversized, men’s like Michael Kors-type of watches, but lately I’ve been more and more finding myself flirting with the idea to purchase one of these tiny, feminine, classic women’s watches such as the “Tank Anglaise” by Cartier. It’s such a timeless design and I have no doubt I could still wear it in either 5 or 50 years from now on and still look great. But $33.900? We don’t even need to begin the discussion of possibly purchasing or saving up for it because it’s way, way out of my price league…or universe even.

Juicy Couture “Darby” Watch

However, a few days ago I happened to stumble upon this set of watches by Juicy Couture and the design instantly reminded me of Cartier’s Tank Anglaise timepiece. There are a couple differences, but considering the huge price difference (the JC version cost either $195 (silver) or $250 (gold) compared to the $33.000 for the Cartier watch) I don’t think it’s much of a big deal.
