Now if this back-bow d’Orsay pump by everyone’s favorite French shoe designer, Monsieur Christian Louboutin, isn’t absolute shoe perfection, I don’t know what is! I mean, just look at it! Perfectly-shaped arch, a nice, subtle platform with a luscious red sole, an almost 5″ stiletto heel and the loveliest tied bow on the back. In a word, the perfect symbiosis of girly and grown-up.

Kate Spade New York “Izzie” Back-Bow d’Orsay Pumps

Update (05/12/2016): Kate Spade New York came out with a second CL Dos Noeud inspired shoe style named “Izzie”. Available in various colors with an either leather or satin upper, these beauties will cost you a not so steal-worthy $328, but that’s still better than $1.045, right?

Nina “Mileena” Bow Back Sandals

Update (01/29/2016): Stumbled upon these adorable bow back heels by Nina and they instantly reminded me of the Louboutins above. Available in various beautiful colors and uppers.

Kate Spade “Chrissie” Back-Bow Dress Sandals

And while I’d love to invest in the Louboutins above, I have to face reality and accept the fact that they’re way out of my price league. That’s why I made it my mission to find a similar shoe for less money. Et voil√†, Kate Spade delivered! At $373.50 (sale price!), these cute bow heels are from being a “steal”, but they are about half the price of the Loubis while looking suspiciously similar to the CL Dos Noeud pumps. FYI: I wouldn’t mind having both versions in my closet. ūüėČ Available in deep red satin or black suede.

Don’t get me wrong: I loooooove high heels with utmost passion, but when summer is blazing its heatwaves upon us, the last thing I would think of wearing are high heeled shoes. A good flat sandal that you can easily slide in and out of and walk in for hours is absolutely essential in the summer; especially if you’re planning to go on vacation. Flip flops would be an obvious choice here, but aren’t we so over them by now? That’s why I am absolutely smitten with these backless knotted sandal leather slides by Joie. I love their minimalistic yet chic design (made in Italy, btw) and the supple cowhide leather; these would go with almost anything in my wardrobe. And while they’re not terribly expensive at $125, we understand that many of you are on a budget, so we made it our mission to find some great alternative options for much less. Just keep on reading.

Mossimo Supply Co. “Ainsley” Knot Thong Sandals

If you’re on a really tight budget, then these cute thong sandals by Mossimo Supply Co. are probably your best option. The design is spot-on, they come in three different colors (black, brown and white) and they can be yours for less than $20! Only downside? These are made of PU leather, so no promises regarding durability and/or sweety feet here.

Sole Society “Sarena” Knotted Slip-On Thong Sandals

If you’re willing to invest a little more for a genuine leather option, check out these chic summer sandals by Sole Society. Again, these are pretty much a spot-on dupe compared to the Joies above (plus, I love that these are made of genuine leather). The price of $29.98 (sale!) ain’t too bad either (that’s less than half the price of the real deal).

So who’s up for some new Christian Louboutin goodness today? Because we have a super pretty Louboutin heel we really want to show you. “Toerless Muse” is a gorgeous pointed-toe stiletto pump enclosed by delicate horizontal and vertical straps giving the shoe a very refined, sexy caged look. The bold design obviously needs space to fully unfold its cage effect, so these beauties should be best worn with a dress that shows some leg (see Olivia Palermo and Kendall Jenner for reference). Unfortunately, these Louboutins are pretty much sold out everywhere and even if you had the luck to find them somewhere, most of us would probably have a hard time justifying spending $900 on a pair of shoes.

Kendall + Kylie “Alisha” Tiered Ankle Strap Pumps

Well, well, now look who took some (or more like a lot) inspiration from their overflowing designer shoe closets for their own shoe collection? The Jenner sisters! “Alisha” by Kendall + Kylie is quite the Louboutin twin, don’t you think? The only noticeable difference between both is that the t-strap on the K + K version is shortened. Otherwise, they’re pretty much identical. “Alisha” is available in either black or taupe leather for $140.

Aldo “Dradodia” Strappy Pointed-Toe Pumps

However, if you want the full t-strap game from ankle to toe, Aldo has got you covered. Their “Dradodia” caged stiletto pump is a dead-ringer for the Toerless Muse Louboutins except Aldo’s version has a slightly different strap arrangement. $120 and these Louboutin look-alike beauties are all yours.

Breckelle’s Lydia-21 T-Strap Pointed-Toe Pumps

If you want to score a real bargain, check out these faux suede heels by Breckelle’s which are spot-on Loubie dupes. I love the red version (Olivia Palermo chic on a budget!) and did I mention these are on sale for $22.99? Steal deal alert, people!

Blair from Atlantic-Pacific is hands down one of my absolute favorite personal style bloggers and I think she has such an impeccable sense of style. Whenever I visit her blog, I always find an abundance of outfit inspiration and rarely see a look that I do not love. While browsing for some new outfit ideas yesterday, I happened to discover this beautiful summer outfit where Blair wore a striped off-the-shoulder top with white short overalls by Madewell, tan Chlo√© espadrille wedges, a cute straw boater and cool Ray-Ban Clubmaster shades. I was so in love with Blair’s French Chic summer ensemble that I decided to recreate her look on a more budget-friendly level. What do you think of my alternative picks? Close enough? Let me know.

Time for some Chlo√© goodness again. The French fashion house really is on a roll with their newest line of “It” bags everyone is lusting after. We’ve already covered the “Drew” and “Faye” and now it’s time to talk about the “Hudson” which is actually a whole set of different Chlo√© bags coming in different shapes and sizes, all of them exuding that iconic Chlo√© boho-vibe with their tassels and fringes. And yes, sure, this is undeniably a gorgeous bag, but can you imagine spending more than $2.000 for this sweet little mini bag?

Lush Leather Saddle Tassel Crossbody Bag

Update (05/11/2016): Stumbled upon the first genuine leather Chloé Hudson dupe today! By Lush and available in either black or brown for $139.99.

Sole Society “Exie” Mini Fringe Shoulder Bag

Luckily, I stumbled upon this cute Chlo√© alternative by Sole Society which will give you the coveted Chlo√© boho look for a whole lot less. Sole Society’s version is a little larger than the real deal Chlo√©, but I actually prefer that because I can’t see my wallet, phone, keys and lipstick fitting comfortably in the Hudson mini bag above. “Exie” is available in cognac brown or black faux leather (with genuine suede tassels) for $59.95.

BagInc “Renee” Faux Leather Fringe Bag

Deal: Use promo code “SPRINGBAG” to get 15% off your entire order!

BagInc has also a good looking, spot-on Chlo√© Hudson faux leather dupe available in various beautiful colors for the budget-friendly price of $69. You can even save some more (15%!) by using the promo code above. FYI: A few weeks ago I received an email from a reader who was having issues with her BagInc order (long order processing and unsatisfactory customer service), so please proceed with caution, prepare yourself for a possibly longer shipping process (products are being shipped from Hong Kong) and if nothing helps, there’s always the possibility to file a dispute with PayPal or your credit card company. I own a couple of (genuine leather) BagInc bags and was always very pleased with both the shipping duration as well as the product quality, but that’s been quite a while ago now, so I can’t fully vouch for the company at this point and thus wanted you to be aware of this.
