So it’s been a while since we last had Monsieur Christian Louboutin starring in one of our Real vs. Steal posts and we also haven’t covered flats in a while, so why not kill two birds with one stone by showing you a pretty neat dupe for these gorgeous spikey Louboutins? Now aren’t they beautiful? The pointy ballerina shape is all elegance and femininity while the silver spikes clearly say: “You better not be messin’ with me, b***!” Too bad their $995 price tag says: “Girl, you better have some money on ya ’cause we ain’t cheap!”

Luckily, we managed to come across these wonderful Louboutin look-alikes at ASOS which are a spot-on Pigalle flat dupe when compared to the real deal, but cost a mere $48 (this is less than 5% of the Louboutin’s price!). A few sizes are already out of stock, so you better grab these quick if you find yourself lusting after some spikey Louboutin on a budget.

I might not be the biggest Kardashian fan in general, but for some reason I always find myself interested in their fashion and what they wear on- and off the screen. Fact is, the Kardashian sisters have really stepped up their style game in the last couple of years (which is probably mainly due to them having hired highly skilled personal stylists and MUAs) and if I had to pick my favorite Kardashian fashion-wise, it would have to be Khloè Kardashian. I love that she wears all her clothes with so much confidence and it never looks as if she is trying too hard which I think is sometimes the case with Kim and Kylie’s fashion choices. A few weeks ago Khloé wore a super sexy strapless button-front sheath dress by Cushnie et Ochs for her TV show “Kocktails with Khloé” which instantly reminded me of Liz Hurley’s infamous safety pin dress from Versace that she wore to a film premiere in 1994. I love Khloé’s look head-to-toe here and really hope that ASOS, Topshop or Missguided will come out with a budget-friendly steal option in a couple of weeks for this sexy (and sadly, very pricey) dress. What do you think of Khloé’s revealing look? Hot or not?

Budget Look – Vacay Mode

by Irina on April 29, 2016

It’s almost May which means it’s time to start thinking summer wardrobe. The weather here has been so depressing lately that I needed some sort of fashionable pick-me-up to lighten my mood, so I started dreaming about a summer vacation in Greece or Italy and all the stylish summer outfits I could wear there. And just like that a new budget look was born! This outfit has a strong focus on fringes and ruffles, a cute and casual summer look. Do you approve?

A simple summertime wedge is sometimes all a girl needs to be happy. Now what’s shocking is that this simple wedge is by Christian Louboutin – the Liberace of shoemakers! No crazy 7 inch wedge. No crazy accouterments. Just a nice pinkish/mauve patent leather shoe. If only one could “simply” find $595 to pay for this much simplicity. But oh well, how do the French say – c’est la vie!

Steve Madden “WISSPER” Slingback Wedge Sandals

Now let me introduce you to the Robin Hood of the shoe world, Mr. Steve Madden. Bringing (and copying) designer heels for less and giving them to the poor (yet oh-so-fab) people! Once again, he doesn’t disappoint with his “WISSPER” slingback wedge. The only truly detectable difference is the thicker slingback strap and buckle. Other than that, for $68.07 (sale price!) this is a great steal. Available in black, teal, fuchsia and white patent as well as black suede, natural linen, navy fabric and leopard.

For the red sole collectors with an urban sense of style, these kicks by Christian Louboutin screamed “Take me home tonight,” (before they were completely sold out)! Stars are being spotted out and about wearing more high tops than ever, and leading the pack is the beautiful, trendsetting Rihanna. If this is your favorite kind of footwear, or you just love to live in the limelight, wear them with shorts or skinny jeans to really show them off. For the red sole admirers, there is another set of shiny silver spikes waiting for you… so scroll down to see what we found!

Steve Madden “TWYNKLE” Spiked Sneakers

If comfortable shoes are your thing, and trendsetting is your mission… don’t miss a beat and snag this pair by Steve Madden so you can begin channeling your inner Rock-‘n-Roll goddess. Especially because even at $785, the real deal is already sold out everywhere. While at $64.99 (sale price!), the pair below isn’t exactly a bargain, but they are still a steal considering the material, craftsmanship and apparent attention to detail. Not sure about how the grey pair will look for summer? They are also available in black suede, white, mint and gold!
