Signore Giuseppe Zanotti, you are killing me with your shoes! I constantly find myself craving his fabulous Italian shoes, but the accompanying price tags just don’t sit well with me. For instance, I absolutely adore this nubuck leather peep-toe front-zip bootie, but even the sale price makes me want to faint. $671.25? I don’t think that’s going to happen.

I have a feeling this summer will be the summer of the espadrille. First we had Valentino’s lace espadrilles and Chanel’s iconic cap-toe espadrille flats and Céline have created their own version in form of this pony hair espadrille slipper which also comes in gorgeous leopard print and royal blue (my fave!). I couldn’t find a retail price for these, but I’m sure they’re totally out of my budget.

Steven by Steve Madden “LANII” Calf Hair Espadrilles

But imagine my happiness when I first spied this calf hair espadrille from Steven by Steve Madden. A pretty perfect Céline dupe if I may say so. And at $72.99/pair (sale price!), I might even be tempted to buy them in two colors. Available in black, blue, pink, grey, leopard and zebra.

Another great and stylish alternative, although slightly more expensive at $130, are these espadrille flats by Manebi which are also an almost identical Céline dupe. Available in black, leopard and blue calf hair. Love these!

Oh my, Tom Ford, your shoes are giving me serious heart palpitations! So we’ve already shown you the OTT mirrored mosaic OTK boots from the SS14 collection two weeks ago and here we have another pair: a just as extravagant and insanely sexy lacey thigh-boot. But all that footwear sexiness comes with a price tag of $3.600. Yup, that should cool us down a little.

Lust for Life “Fly” Thigh-High Lace Boots

Woot, woot! Today I discovered these super sexy Tom Ford dupes by Lust for Life which are currently on pre-order for $250 at Heels.com. I’m slightly missing the gold stiletto heel on these, but for $250 (that’s $3.350 less than the real deal, FYI), I ain’t complaining. If you love these as much as I do, better get them ASAP, I am sure they will sell out in no time!

I love (almost) everything coming from Alexander Wang, but shelling out $750 for a bag is neither reasonable to me nor anywhere in my budget (I’m also more of a shoes girl).

Real vs. Steal – Céline Trio Bag

by Irina on May 27, 2014

UPDATE: This post has been updated on May 27, 2014. Scroll down to see the new add.

What is it about Céline handbags that makes me want to hand out my credit card, close my eyes and say: “But please, be gentle!“? I don’t know whether it’s the hype surrounding the French fashion house or the countless style bloggers toting around Céline beauties on their arm, but for some reason Céline bags have that enviable “je ne sais quoi“-factor that draws me to them. Not that I am anywhere in the position to actually buy a Céline bag right now. But not now doesn’t mean never, right? But until then, I’ll have to settle for a budget-friendly Céline Trio alternative, I guess.

And the first one’s a total winner, right? These cute faux leather bags by Apt. 9 are a close match to the pricey Céline designer original yet they are currently on sale for a very wallet-friendly $16.99! Steal deal alert, woot woot! At this price, I’d probably get one in every color.

MICHAEL Michael Kors “Bedford Gusset” Crossbody Bag

If you’re looking for a real leather option and are are ready to invest considerably more, then this triple zipper crossbody by MICHAEL Michael Kors is a great Céline Trio alternative. $198 seems like a lot for such a small bag, but it’s still better than $1.500, right? Sadly, the best colors are already sold out including my personal favorite, a beautiful cobalt blue hue! Boohoo! Waiting for a restock on this!
