There are shoes… and there are SHOES! The first time I laid my eyes on Christian Louboutin‘s “Années Folles“, a gorgeous d’Orsay satin pump with gold lattice details on the back and front with a sky-high 5.5” heel, I knew it was one of those mad crushes you’ll never get rid of. And boy, was I right… I cyberstalked these lustworthy heels on a weekly basis knowing I couldn’t afford them anyway, but that didn’t affect my adoration one bit and since love knows no borders I was completely lost forever. And just when I thought I couldn’t want these any more I saw Jennifer Lopez and Dita von Teese strutting their stuff wearing these Loubies and looking drop-dead gorgeous doing so! I seriously can’t wait for the first knockoffs to pop up (let’s hope they’ll be able to replicate all those delicate details without messing them up or making them look cheap).

If you’re looking for a sexy pair of black high heels, these Sergio Rossi zip back sandals might be what you’re looking for. The criss cross straps add interest while the zipper that goes all the way down to the heel will grant you some “Ooooh!” and “Aaaah!” moments from fellow shoe aficionados.

Jessica Simpson “Deluth” Sandals

Every second shoe style from Jessica Simpson‘s shoe line is basically a knockoff. The “Deluth” sandal is no exception. The heel might be thicker, but other than that they look almost like the Sergio Rossi back zip sandals.

Mossimo “Vanya” Strappy Sandals

I found these Sergio Rossi dupes by Mossimo via The Look 4 Less. They miss the back zipper detail and the heel is pretty chunky, but they are a good Sergio Rossi alternative if you’re on a tight shoe budget.

Style Berry Cross Strap Sandals

I have just found another pair of Sergio Rossi knockoffs. These here retail for $60 and also come in black, but I really love them in beige actually. They do have the zipper detail on the back, but like with all the other knockoffs it’s not going down the heel unfortunately. They are still a great alternative and affordable, too.

Miroslava Duma might not be your standard Hollywood celebrity. However, among fashion connoisseurs she’s been known for her impeccable style for quite some time now. The Russian “It” girl has been working as an editor for Harper’s Bazaar Russia and is a common face on street style blogs such as The Sartiorialist and Jak&Jil during Fashion Week. She’s also cute as a button, so that might be weighing in as well. The picture below, taken by Mr. Sartorialist himself, is one of the most popular of Miroslava. I remember people flooding several style forums in hopes of finding someone who can id her outfit. Miroslava’s nerdy glasses have been subject to great interest in particular. As far as I know, no one has been able to identify the brand or come up with a proper alternative for her geeky frames… well, that was until today.

LuLu*s “Nerd Alert” Frames

Did we already mention just how muuuuuuch we love LuLu*s? Check out their “Nerd Alert” frames which cost only $9 and compare them to Miroslava’s. They look quite identical to me. Hers might have cost a bit more, but we certainly don’t mind a cheap thrill, do we? Make sure to use our exclusive coupon code above to save another $1.35! Yay!

We don’t often feature jewelry here on InTheirCloset but we felt that the Tiffany Legacy Collection Aquamarine Ring probably deserved an entry. After all, at $6,400 I can’t imagine an item more worthy of a “Real vs. Steal” post. The Tiffany site describes this ring as being evocative of the “Edwardian Period” and I can certainly see some Belle Époque royal donning this stunner on her index finger. Today, however, this ring, featuring a 1.26 aquamarine and a mess of round brilliant diamonds, would be the ideal cocktail ring. If you’ve got money to spare. Which I do not (hello, closet full of Forever 21 jewelry!).

My Jewelry Box Blue Topaz Cocktail Ring

If you’ve been looking for a lower-priced cocktail ring to pair with all your summer evening dresses, look no further. The Blue Topaz Cocktail Ring featured on My Jewelry Box is the perfect, more affordable alternative to the mucho expensivo Tiffany Aquamaring Ring. Set in white gold (the Tiffany ring is set in platinum), this gorgeous bague is also available with a citrine, amethyst (love!) and green amethyst stone.

When the H&M Garden Collection debuted last week, and promptly flew off shelves, I had a feeling that a floral revolution was upon us. I, myself, have been lusting after a floral bustier for what feels like ages. Of course the onset of spring always brings with it a love of all things abloom, but this year feels especially flowery. Clearly our favorite starlets are just as besotted – and with the floral mini-skirt in particular. It feels fresh and young and pairs equally well with knee-high boots as it does with sky-high heels. I don’t always advocate jumping on the trend wagon but in this case all I can say is “welcome aboard”.
