Even though I am not very partial to Birkenstock shoes, I know Céline made them “très cool” last year. And this year, we have Isabel Marant strengthening their coolness factor even further by adding a cute studded bow on top and giving those bland Birkenstocks her typical boho touch which we’ve seen in previous of Marant’s collections. Well, I have to admit I kinda like these summer sandals here and I bet these suckers are super comfortable to wear!

Choies Embellished Bow Tie Up Sandals

UPDATE (08/13/2014): Came across a black dupe of Isabel Marant’s Edris sandals at Choies. Not exactly budget-friendly, but very close to the real deal in terms of design.

Zara Leather Bio Sandals With Thin Straps

UPDATE (05/11/2014): When I saw these Birkenstock-like sandals at Zara, they instantly reminded me of the Isabel Marant Edris bow tie sandals above.

HOT DEAL: Free worldwide shipping on all orders! Sign up to the Jessica Buurman newsletter and get a 10% off coupon!

So you can’t afford to spend $600 on the originals yet these shoes just won’t go out of your head? Well then take a look at this Jessica Buurman sandal which is quite obviously inspired by Marant’s “Edris” sandal above. It’s not a perfect dupe and you obviously won’t get the same quality, but it’s $440 cheaper, so that’s that.

I usually don’t deem flip flops dressy or fashionable, but as so often Chanel once again proves me wrong. How lovely do these PVC thong sandals look? I really like the classic color combo of black and ivory here and also the Camellia flower embellishment – Coco Chanel’s signature flower – which is such a nice way to dress up a pair of plain ole’ flip flops, don’t you agree? And how cute does the CC logo link look? Such a sweet little detail to add! I’m not sure how much these flip flops retailed for, but I think it must’ve been around $550-$600. For a pair of PVC shoes! Yeah. Chanel ain’t for penny pinchers, people!

Target Jelly Flower Flip Flops

Obviously, most of us can’t or won’t spend that kind of money on a pair of jelly shoes, but how about $13? Well, that’s more like it, right? Check out these thong sandals by Target which look very similar to Chanel’s Camellia flip flops. Of course, they are missing Chanel’s superb quality (and the cute gold CC-logo), but for $12.99 they’re a fab alternative to the pricey Chanel version.

Slip-on sneakers are a huge, huge trend right now and I have a feeling Givenchy is partly to hold responsible. I’m totally loving their iconic rose print which they put on pretty much every item at the moment and I think the floral print gives these sneakers a nice, feminine touch. But as much as I love these floral slip-ons, would I be willing to spend $570 on them? Probably not.

Wasn’t there a moment in every little girl’s life where she has dreamed of being a ballerina? And with ballet flats as lovely looking as these by Chloé, isn’t there still a place in every woman’s heart for that little girl’s dream? Too bad the reality of that $485 price tag keeps most of us away from making that dream come true.
