Oh, how I adore French Connection‘s “Spot the Dot” dress. The colors remind me of a watercolor painting depicting a spring night and I love how one half of the dress is a gathered, Grecian, one-shoulder but the other half is a bustier – so flattering! The tiered mini-skirt will transition you perfectly from your shopping/coffee date to that dinner/drinks soiree. Don’t start making plans quite yet, though! This dress is, to our mutual chagrin I’m sure, completely sold out.

LuLu*s Spring Bling Dress

Are you heartbroken by the news that the French Connection dress is sold out? Well fear not, trusty fashion side-kick! We have an excellent replacement for you. Just have a look at this LuLu*s “Spring Bling” dress. I think you’ll agree that this is a stellar knockoff of the FC frock. With more wines and grapes than cherries and blueberries, this is a darker version of our above pick but I would say one equally worthy of your adoration.

Perhaps you’re not into the gladiator trend, but still like your sandals strappy? Then look no further! Chloé updated the the look by adding a small wedge and the overall effect is more relaxed and less Roman. The only problem is, they’re sold out. Fret not, fashion lovers…

Every now and again a shoe crosses my radar that I am totally wowed by. The Chloé Bow-Embellished Pump would fall into that category. It is a shoe that remarkably seems to transcend both the barriers of time and style. The shape of the shoe along with the crystal bows and embellishments are vaguely reminiscent, in my opinion, of the overly ornate footwear women wore in the 1700s prior to the French Revolution. And I mean that in the best possible way. But then scroll down and take a gander at how Kristen Stewart was styled while wearing these exquisite heels. She’s totally rocked out and miraculously these shoes seem to fit perfectly. All that inky black suede adds instant edginess but the crystal bows manage to sweeten the whole look. Well, here I’ve been rambling on about the awesomeness that is these shoes and, silly me, not only are they ridiculously expensive but they are also sold out. Sorry about that.

Pour La Victoire “Antoinette” Bow Pumps

Pour La Victoire is a shoe designer I’ve been following for a few years. They make beautiful, original footwear but occasionally they’ll come out with an equally stunning “inspired-by” shoe. Their “Antoinette” Bow Pumps (so perfectly named!) are not exact copies of the Chloés, but they’re similar enough that we can certainly see where the inspiration came from. Crystal bows atop a bed of black satin and a back zip closure, just like the originals. Oh, and a much easier to swallow price-tag. Yum.

Hervé Léger has made a big comeback in recent seasons (now with BCBG designer, Max Azria at its helm), truly pioneering the hugely popular “body-con” dress. A trend defined by its bandage, super-tight frocks, it’s sort-of ironic to think that “body-con” stands for “body-conscious”. Somehow, however, Hervé Léger dresses manage to flatter a woman’s body, hugging and sucking in, in all the right places (just look at how amazing that model looks below!). Lamentably, while I’d love to own one of his creations, I’d have to sell a kidney to make it happen.

EXPRESS Metallic One-Shoulder Banded Dress

Express to the rescue! We discovered this little number on the fabulous, like-minded site, The Look 4 Less. EXPRESS usually wouldn’t be the first place I’d turn to in search of a designer-inspired dress, however they have been in the sexy-dress business for a long time and they happen to have really nailed it with their Metallic One-Shoulder Banded Dress. With a fabulous shape and beautiful golden-nude color, this garment is a great knockoff of the Hervé Léger original and for less than $80, this is a dress I can actually afford.
