Giuseppe Zanotti must be one of the most talked-about designers here on this blog (closely followed by Christian Louboutin and Christophe Decarnin for Balmain). I know you might be bored with this kind of brand overexposure and I am thoroughly sorry if you are, but I can’t help it. I just LOVE his shoes. I obsess over and dream about them. The steep price of a real Giuseppe Zanotti shoe however is nothing but a nightmare to me. Not everyone was born with a silver spoon in the mouth, Mr. Zanotti!

Kelsi Dagger “Justina” Ankle Wrap Pumps

Kelsi Dagger have a great and affordable alternative if you are craving the Giuseppe Zanotti heels, but can’t warm up to the price. These ankle wrap heels retail for a much lower $80 (sale price!) while still giving you the designer shoe look. Thanks to Yolanda for sending in this find!

Christopher Kane has gained quite a bit of momentum lately with many of his designs being worn on the red carpet by red carpet pros such as Diane Kruger and Emma Watson. His collaboration with Topshop has definitely raised his profile as well. The layered geometric sheer dress below is just beautiful. I love the sculptural sillhouette, the subtle sheerness and the contrasting black velvet piping. A modern take on the classic shift dress.

ASOS PETITE Organza Shift Dress

If you want the same look without breaking the bank, ASOS has a really good and budget-friendly option. They changed the color to be a light pink instead of eggshell and the black piping is slightly different as well, but all in all it will still give you a very similar look for a much lower price.

Back in April Anne Hathaway attended the Cartier 100th Anniversary in America Celebration looking lovely in a short blue Jill Stuart dress with a black lace overlay. The beautiful actress completed her feminine ensemble with sheer black tights, Cartier jewelry and ultra-high satin pumps by Casadei.

Extreme platform wedges seem to be quite the new must-have item among style bloggers these days. First, there were the Acne “Atacomas” and now everyone is going gaga over the leopard print peep-toe wedges by Ashish for Topshop. My personal opinion is twisted. I like the shape and the crazy high platform wedge, but I’ve never been a fan of animal print, so I’ll pass. If you’re a quirky person and can handle the attention you’ll get from strangers with these on, you’re welcome to buy since Topshop recently restocked them after the first shipment sold out within a day.

Jeffrey Campbell “Tick” Cheetah Platform Wedges

Well, while I was writing up this post on Jeffrey Campbell‘s tribute to the Ashish for Topshop wedges a.k.a. “Tick“, most sizes just flew off the shelves and it’s quite understable why. These wedge booties will give you an almost identical look for half the price. Good deals don’t last long I guess. Will keep you updated if I find more shops selling these. If you are a size 7.5 you can still make them yours. But order straight away or they will be gone by tomorrow.

I currently have an obsessive love affair with the color cobalt blue and I find myself putting everything blue I come across on my wish list and these crystal embellished Jimmy Choos will go right onto my christmas wish list. Unfortunately, I don’t know anyone rich enough who’d buy these for me. Bummer!

Miss Me Garnet-12 Sandals

Although not available in the adorable cobalt blue color, these sandals by Miss Me will give you the identical look of the Jimmy Choos without the hefty price tag. I just love the vibrant red color and the fact that you can’t spot one single difference between these two pairs (except quality, of course). The heels come in an array of 4 colors including red, black, dusty pink and light gold.
