Oh, Valentino! How much do I adore your bags, shoes and clothes! As you can see from the many, many Real vs. Steal “Rockstud” posts, Valentino’s “Rockstud” collection is still going strong and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. Not only have Valentino kitten heels in their collection, kitten boots have followed now, too. And aren’t they just lovely? I could see myself wearing these fabulous booties day in, day out. If only it weren’t for the $1.375 price tag!

Vaneli for Jildor “Korey” Suede Booties

Update (07/20/2016): Spotted Valentino Rockstud look-alike booties by Vaneli in a suede version at Jildor. Again, not the most affordable of dupes ($275!), but possibly worth the splurge (or you might try to sit it out and wait for them to go on sale).

Carolinna Espinosa “Enid” Leather Point Toe Booties

Update (11/28/2015): Spotted these Valentino inspired ankle booties by Carolinna Espinosa today and thought they’d be a great look for less alternative. They’re not exactly budget-friendly at $195, but might be worth the investment if you’re really looking for a high quality Valentino dupe.

Gumzzi Studded Ankle Boots

Good thing I stumbled upon these cute and almost identical looking studded kitten heel booties by Gumzzi. No need to go broke over a pair of booties, get the Valentino Rockstud designer look for 5% of the real deal’s price instead!

So, lace-up flats again today. Are you already sick of seeing them everywhere yet? Stuart Weitzman has been really killing it in the boot department lately (Highland OTK boot, anyone?), so of course they had to join the lace-up flat trend bandwagon as well. May I introduce you to “Gilligan”, a beautiful suede lace-up d’Orsay flat with a 0.5″ stacked heel and absolute style blogger favorite. I love every single detail about this flat except for the price which is $398 (now on sale for $253). If you love the look but not the price, keep on reading to find some fantastic Weitzman alternatives for much, much less.

Louise et Cie “Abbatha” Lace-Up d’Orsay Flats

Another personal favorite of mine are these lovely lace-up flats by Louise et Cie. They don’t come in suede unfortunately, but the rest of the design is pretty much identical. Plus, these are currently on sale for $79.99 (down from $139).

Steve Madden “Sunshine” d’Orsay Lace-Up Flats

I also adore these lace-up flats from Steve Madden which aren’t an identical dupe, but similar enough to double as a budget-friendly Weitzman alternative. This flat looks actually like the perfect symbiosis of Aquazzura’s “Christy” and Stuart Weitzman’s “Gilligan”, don’t you agree? These beauties come in various beautiful colors (sand, light pink, gold, snakeskin and black) and at $69.95 they’re quite budget-friendly as well. By the way, a taupe version with a non-gold heel named “Blondie” is available at Steve Madden (Canada)ls.

Ava & Aiden “Alexandra” Pointed-Toe Lace-Up Flats

While these Ava & Aiden lace-up flats are the least likely of a “Gilligan” dupe in this list, I still wanted to include them here because I think they’re absolutely fabulous and have a very similar look to the Weitzman flats above. These come in black, grey, blush and tan and are currently on sale for under $70.

Summer is in full swing and breezy summer dresses are the way to dress in this heat. And just how breezy is this lovely, delicate little white dress by Chloé? Sure, you’d have to tape it to your breasts if you want to avoid “wardrobe malfunctions”, but once everything is safely kept in its place, I think this dress would look fantastic on vacations, beach days and summer garden parties. Just look at how gorgeous Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looks wearing this beautiful dress (OK, Rosie would look good in anything, but still). Too bad it costs almost $2.800 which makes it absolutely unattainable for most of us fashion lovers!

Selfie Leslie “Dreamer” Skater Dress

Update (07/19/2016): Found another lovely Chloé inspired dress alternative today which is by Selfie Leslie and is less risqué than the designer original and less calling for a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. Check out the “Dreamer” dress, it’s such a cute summer dress, don’t you agree? The Selfie Leslie dress has roughly the same overall design but can be yours for $55.

Le Salty Label x REVOLVE Mini Dress

Luckily, there’s a fantastic look for less alternative available by Le Salty Label for a much lower price of $128. Their LWD (which is also available in black) is shorter and has slightly less intricate detailing than the Chloé original, but the resemblance between both dresses is still very visible. And just in case you’re not a fan of the short length, this dress also comes in a lovely maxi dress version. Make sure to check out Le Salty Label’s whole collection because it’s absolutely fabulous and just perfect for summer!

Stripes. I’m still ridiculously obsessed with them and probably will never grow tired of them. That’s why I probably don’t have to tell you how I feel about this striped silk midi skirt by Tibi. And after seeing this skirt on some of my most favorite fashion bloggers, it made my obsession with it ten times worse. Not that I could give in to the temptation of buying it – that skirt costs a whopping $349 and that’s already the sale price (retail is $698)! But still… if I was rich girl (na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na nah)

Eliza J Pleated Stripe Midi Skirt

Update (03/28/2016): OMG! Now look at this beauty of a skirt by Eliza J! Isn’t it just gorgeous? I love how spot-on it is to the Tibi skirt, especially since the materials look exactly the same even though Tibi’s skirt is 100% silk and this one is 100% polyester. Anyway, the material at least looks just as luxurious as the pricey real deal, so that might be close enough. Also, did I mention this skirt is on sale? But the best part? If you use promo code “JULY” at checkout, you will get 15% off regular-priced and sale items at Lord & Taylor which will lower the price of this skirt down to an affordable $135.15 (retail price is $159, offer valid through July 18th, 2016).

Update (01/12/2016): Discovered this awesome striped midi skirt at ASOS a few days ago, ordered it straight away and love it to death! It’s a great and budget-friendly alternative to the pretty Tibi skirt above, don’t you think? Sizes are selling out by the hour, so I wouldn’t wait too long with this one.

Topshop Stripe Midi Skirt

Luckily, Topshop caters to the needs of us stripe-lovin’, budget-conscious fashionistas, so they came up with a fantastic Tibi look for less option that will cost you just 1/7 of what the real deal would set you back. It’s not the cheapest skirt in town, I admit, but from what I read in reviews, the quality seems to be good and the fabric to be heavy and crease-free. And who doesn’t love to save time on ironing? Get this beauty while it’s still available, it’s almost sold out at Topshop and Nordstrom will probably follow soon as well.

Choies Striped Midi Skirt

If you love striped skirts, but don’t want to spend $100 on one, then you might want to take a look at this Tibi-inspired midi skirt I discovered at Choies. It looks very similar to the real deal, but costs only $16.90! You shouldn’t expect too much quality-wise, but if you want a cheap fashion fix for your stripes obession, this is probably the best way to go.

Chanel espadrilles, round 3. This time we’re showing you the leather version (see the mesh and canvas version here). The top color combination is my personal favorite! Perfect shoes for summer, don’t you agree? I’ve said it before: despite the hype surrounding these shoes I still really like these cute espadrilles, but there’s no way I would spend so much money on a pair of espadrilles even though I can imagine that the leather version is the most durable of all the three variations. But still, $550? Um, no, thank you.

They’re a little on the pricey side at $100 (now on sale for $39), but you should take into account that these are made of genuine leather and the craftmanship looks pretty great as well, so if you want a sturdy high-quality dupe that will last you a while, I’m sure these would be a great choice!
