There was a time, somewhere around 2007-2008 I think, when Hervé Léger‘s bandage dresses were all the rage. Back then you could point your finger to any red carpet event and there was at least one celebrity, no matter whether A- or D-list, who was wearing one of the brand’s bodycon banded pencil dresses. However, people got tired of wearing (and seeing) the overtly sexy dresses eventually and slowly but steadily Hervé Léger vanished from the red carpet radar. But now that the hype has died down, my admiration for the brand’s iconic pieces returned. And this gorgeous cobalt blue cap sleeve bandage pencil dress had me at cobalt blue. Now isn’t this a stunning dress? So elegant and timeless; hugging your curves in all the right places while the vibrant color will make you the center of attention at any cocktail party. If just it weren’t for the price tag…

ASOS SCULPT Bandage Midi Dress With Gold Bar Belt

Now imagine my delight when I stumbled upon this beautiful Hervé Léger look-alike bandage dress at ASOS a few days ago! It may not be an identical dupe match, but the inspiration behind this dress is more than obvious. I loooove that ASOS kept the vibrant blue color, but I’m not too keen on the gold bar belt to be honest. But still, this dress is probably the closest you can get when looking for Hervé Léger chic on a budget at the moment.

The rise of the Birkenstock sandal has been a massive one and the eco shoe trend even managed to leave its marks on some of the most renamed high fashion designers such as Isabel Marant who designed a couple Birkenstock-like styles (remember Edris?), but added a few nice extra details like bows and studs to make them look bearable to those who have a non-hippie approach to shoes. The “Brook” style for example features a lovely braided t-strap which gives it more of a boho vibe rather than that of orthopedic shoes, however I still don’t see myself shelling out $510 for these babies!

Miz Mooz “Jocelyn” Braided Leather Thong Sandals

Luckily, I don’t have to because Miz Mooz gives us the Isabel Marant look for much less. The design of their “Jocelyn” sandal is amazingly similar to Marant’s “Brook”, plus these beauties come in many beautiful colors such as blush pink, taupe, tan, navy, yellow, turquoise and black suede.

‘Tis the season to get your spike on! From spiked heels to spiked drinks – I am so down! Which is why this Pigalle “Loubie” should totally be in my stocking. But at over $1.000 and the fact that it’s sold out – ol’ St. Nick won’t be dropping these babies off anytime soon! No worries though, all my naughty girls; we found a nice lil’ knockoff below.

STUDIO TMLS “Bahia” Studded Pumps

See… naughty girls need love, too. And these pretty pumps as well! “Bahia” by STUDIO TMLS is not as spiked or as high as the Pigalle, but for about roughly 10% of the original cost, I think we can deal with these few exceptions. But not spiking my drink with enough of the good stuff is a whole other story. ;-)

When it comes to shoes, I don’t mind mine to look a bit bondage-y because it instantly adds sex appeal and confidence to any outfit. That’s why it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’m quite obsessed with these buckled multi-strap high heel sandals from Italian shoemaster Giuseppe Zanotti. But I can love these heels all I want, it won’t change the fact that they’re way out of my budget at more than $700 and that’s already the sale price! This means no Zanottis for me just yet.
