I have yet to come across an Alaïa shoe that I don’t like or covet. His footwear creations are always the right amount of edgy, sexy and creative. Just take a look at these super hot leather and stretch crisscross stilleto sandals! Imagine how awesome these would look with a leather leggings and a structured white blazer! They’re currently on sale at NET-A-PORTER (which is a good thing), but even the sale price is still pretty steep at $1.347,50. Some day… some day I will own a pair of Alaïa heels! Too bad it can’t be these ones.

Now is this a statement item or what? The shocking pink Adam jumpsuit below sure isn’t for the faint of heart, so wear with caution. Putting it on will guarantee to make you the center of attention. Finish off your outfit with black stilettos and turquoise accessories and you’re set to make a colorful impact.

Espadrilles! These summer shoes have risen to fame in the last couple of seasons with Chanel and Valentino leading the pack of the fabulous espadrilles. We’ve already done a Real vs. Steal on Valentino’s highly popular lace espadrilles from a few seasons ago and now they’ve updated their shoe collection with a just as stylish crochet version. But as gorgeous as they are, do you actually see yourself spending $675 (!) on a pair of highly delicate espadrilles? Well, I can’t.

Rebecca Minkoff “Genny” Lace Espadrille Flats

Good thing is that I don’t have to spend nearly $700 when there are Valentino-inspired espadrilles like these by Rebecca Minkoff around. And while I admit these aren’t what I’d consider a steal at $67.99 (sale price!) they are still in fact $600 cheaper than the originals. Available in black, red coral, yellow and taupe.

Another great Valentino alternative are these crochet espadrilles by Tory Burch. They aren’t terribly cheaper than the Rebecca Minkoffs but in comparison to the pricey Valentinos they’re quite the good deal. Available in black and white.

Oh my, it’s been a while, huh? So sorry we’ve been MIA for the last couple of weeks, but offline life has kept us very busy. However, we’re almost fully back now and should return to our regular posting schedule next week at the latest. In the meantime, have some fun with these stunners from Monsieur Christian Louboutin. I know I’ve said it like a hundred times before already, but I think I have found THE shoe. As soon as I laid my eyes on Louboutin’s “So Kate” stiletto heels I was captivated, it has the most perfect arch ever, doesn’t it? And while I would probably opt for the classic black patent, this snakeskin stripe print version is so much more fun, don’t you agree? Only problem? The price tag, obviously. $1.095 – that would pay quite a few bills for this girl here!

Lust for Life “Krush” Striped Stiletto Pumps

While we couldn’t find an exact match for the orange version, we managed to dig out these fabulous stiletto pumps by Lust for Life which you might remember have also come up with a stunning pair of Tom Ford OTK boot dupes. As much as I love the real Loubis, the cobalt blue color (one of my absolute faves!) and the much nicer price tag of $129.99 makes this an easy choice for me. What about you? Real or steal, which one do you prefer?

So I’ve been majorly obsessed with these Azzedine Alaïa booties ever since I saw them on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley earlier this year. Now I sure love most of Alaïa’s shoes, but these were especially fabulous to me. Suede ankle boots are a staple for fall and the studded banana heel with the added decorative zippers is a total head-turner. If only I could afford these gems…

Pelle Moda “Palm” Studded Platform Booties

Pelle Moda has a pretty great Alaïa alternative. It’s not an identical 1:1-match, but the overall look is still very Alaïa. Now I just wished the platform wasn’t quite as dominant and the price tag a tad lower. Thanks to our reader Devon for reminding me about these fabulous Alaïa look-a-likes!

VANELi “Candice” Studded Suede Ankle Boots

I found another Alaïa inspired optionon Amazon, but you have to be a bit careful with that one as I’m not completely sure if this is actually a bootie by VANELi. On the Amazon website you see this particular style pictured along with plain ankle boots. Someone’s mixed up two completely different shoe styles I guess, so be careful that you get the right shoe in case you plan to oder it.
