Strappy sandals: everybody loves them! At least that’s what one must assume by looking at the footwear trends of the last five years. And it’s easy to see why strappy is so “en vogue” right now; the multiple straps create a super sexy look. And these strappy heels by Roberto Cavalli are a particularly nice example to show this effect. Unfortunately, a very expensive one, too.

We’ve featured quite a few Michael Kors watches on this blog already and I must admit that I still kind of crave one even though I haven’t bitten the bullet yet and invested in one. But seeing how lovely Wendy’s watch looks on her wrist with a little bit of arm candy, makes me want to buy one even more. But $250? That’s quite a commitment and I’m usually not the type who spends much on accessories like watches or jewelry.

Topshop Chunky Strap Watch

If you’re like me and like the look of the Michael Kors watch but don’t want to spend so much money on it, here’s a great alternative I found at Topshop. Their chunky strap watches – available in gold or silver tone – have a very similar look yet retail for only a fifth of the original’s price.

Here we have another pair of the typically OTT Giuseppe Zanotti pumps. The silhouette is all very similar with the sky-high towering heel and some sort of exaggerated design. As usual, my initial liking towards Giuseppe Zanotti footwear always arises some mixed feelings, which later turn into a slight footwear obsession. Undeniably, these exaggerated peep-toe platform pumps are a form of creative vision. Likewise, they look amazing and really elongate one’s legs for a super flattering finish. I really love how Gabrielle Union paired these pumps with a simple yet elegant red dress.

Sam Edelman “Alexa” Peep-toe Platform Pumps

Although Zanotti is known for his innovative style, Sam Edelman also brings an inventive touch in the footwear industry. Greatly mimicking the designer deal above, these “Alexa” Peep-toe Platform Pumps have a very similar shape and structure. And though the general motif is very comparable, the price tag makes a huge difference! These are not only futuristically beautiful, but also quite affordably priced at $130! Aside from this bright purple version pictured below, they are available in black suede as well.

I used to love wearing white when I was a teenager, but then got tired of it and stopped wearing anything white apart from tops or blouses for a very, very long time. Nowadays, I embrace wearing white again and even an all-white look as daring as this one from Jennifer Lopez really finds my liking. I love the crisp cleanliness of J.Lo’s look, so I tried to recreate her outfit for you on a more budget-friendly level. Do you like it?
