Gianvito Rossi is slowly but surely taking my heart by storm with his shoe collections! I can’t remember anyone of his shoe styles lately that I wasn’t fond of. This woven multi-strap sandal, for instance, I like it a lot. It’s a couple of seasons old already, so I couldn’t find many details on it, but I’m pretty sure it would’ve been out of my price range anyway.

LuLu*s Stillness is the Move Faux Suede Caged Heels

Update (05/24/2016): Spotted these budget-friendly Gianvito Rossi look-alikes at LuLu*s today. They come in either fuchsia, nude or black faux suede and cost $36.

Forever 21 Braided Faux Suede Sandals

Apparently Forever 21 liked Rossi’s woven sandal concept, so they came up with a neat dupe version of their own. F21 ditched the bronzey metallic color and instead opted for more wearable colors, as well as a much nicer price tag, of course.

Can we please have a moment of OMG!-silence for this AH!-mazing Balmain blazer? Consider me obsessed big time. If there ever existed something such as the perfect blazer, this gold-buttoned double-breasted navy wool-twill blazer which comes with Balmain’s signature razor-sharp silhouette would definitely be one of them. Just take a look at how gorgeous and effortlessly elegant all the beautiful ladies below look in their Balmain-adorned outfit ensembles. Perfection! I’d even be willing to splurge on a classic fashion staple such as this blazer, but its price of $2.385 is just beyond any common sense. My credit card does not approve.

Banana Republic Nautical-Style Basketweave Blazer

Deal: Use promo code “BRTAKE40” at checkout to get 40% off your purchase at Banana Republic! Restrictions apply. Offer ends 5/30.

My personal favorite Balmain look for less alternative is this nautical basketweave blazer I discovered at Banana Republic recently. All the important Balmain details are there: a fitted silhouette, double-breasted front, gold buttons and a beautiful deep navy color. BR’s version has a couple differences such as a different material, but they’re rather minor and overall it’s still a gorgeous and budget-friendly alternative for the pricey Balmain blazer. Especially so if you take advantage of the 40% off promotion which is currently running at Banana Republic because it cuts down the price of this blazer down from $178 to $106.80 (that’s a saving of $2.278,20 compared to the real deal). Super steal deal alert!

Veronica Beard Seaside Double Breasted Blazer

Now this nautical blazer by Veronica Beard is probably the closest match to the real deal Balmain in terms of overall design, but it does cost almost $600, so it ranks as my current second favorite Balmain dupe. You would save a whopping $1.790 by opting for the Veronica Beard version though, so I still consider this blazer to be a pretty good bargain nonetheless!

P.S.: A similar version is also available at Veronica Beard.

Brooks Brothers Wool Double-Breasted Blazer

Another gorgeous blazer and pretty awsome Balmain alternative is this lovely navy blazer by Brooks Brothers. The key details are spot-on Balmain, Brooks Brothers is known for their high-quality tailoring and did I mention this beauty of a blazer is currently on sale for $411 (was $548). Sure, it’s not a steal at that price, but it might be worth the investment because a navy blazer is so versatile.

Vero Moda Military Blazer

And here’s a little little something for all you European Balmain lovers out there! These military-inspired double-breasted blazers by Vero Moda are a pretty spot-on Balmain dupe for less than €50 (sale price!). You’re welcome.

J.Crew Double-Breasted Blazer

Deal: 25% off with code “SUMMER” or 30% off with code “CARDSONLY” & your J.Crew Card!

Not available in navy, but these blazers by J.Crew also reminded me of the Balmain one above because the design and silhouette are so similar. If you’re all about the navy color, check out this other J.Crew blazer (not double-breasted) here ($178 -25% off promo) or this one which I found at J.Crew Factory for $110.50 (sale price!).

Missguided Military Style Blazer

Deal: 30% student discount for US students! Excludes sale items. Offer ends soon!

If you really want to snatch a steal deal here, these Balmain inspired blazers by Missguided which cost $64.60 might be a considerable look for less option. It’s just too bad these don’t come in navy.

I don’t actively follow swimwear fashion, so for me to take notice of a swimwear trend, it really takes a lot of hype and medial exposure (yes, I have seen you, Triangl bikinis!) or a very, very beautiful bikini/swimsuit. Marysia‘s scalloped “Antibes” swimwear is easily both: beautiful and dearly loved by celebs and online influencers worldwide. The scalloped swimsuits and bikinis regularly get a fair share of social media exposure and are universally flattering for women of all shapes and sizes. Now if only they weren’t so darn expensive, the “Antibes” bikini set will set you back $272.

H&M Scalloped Bandeau Bikini

Cute bikini alert! I also came across this lovely white scalloped bandeau bikini by H&M which is obviously an awesome dupe for the Marysia Antibes bikini, but H&M’s version costs less than $35 (set price!) in comparison. Total no brainer here.

Accessorize “Sasha” Scalloped Bandeau Bikini

Last but not least, I also stumbled upon the “Sasha” bikini collection by Accessorize which, too, has some visible Marysia Antibes inspiration going on. The scalloped bikinis have an extra bow knot added on the bustier, they come in either white, navy or coral and a set costs less than $60. Super cute and super affordable, I love this steal!

There’s nothing like having a nude pair of shoes to slide into during the warmer times of the year! It’s such a great color especially when it comes in patent and the color is so versatile it can go with TONS of stuff! So, you can see why these Jimmy Choo Phyllis Espadrille Slides are absolutely noteworthy to be featured! I can’t wait to have my ice cold drink next to the pool while admiring my feet with these bad boys on! Yet, retailing at $375 this might break the bank for some, so here is a more affordable option…

Update (05/17/2016): Just stumbled upon another spot-on Jimmy Choo Phyllis wedge look-alike today! It’s by Schutz, comes in either black or white patent leather and is currently on sale for $63.

J. Litvack “Malta” Espadrille Wedge Slides

Update (05/01/2014): Discovered another Jimmy Choo inspired espadrille wedge! Check out these wedge slides by J. Litvack. They’re not quite as high as the Jimmy Choos, but the look is still very similar to the real deal. Available in black and nude patent leather for $82.95.

Steve Madden “Genisis” Espadrilles

This Steve Madden version has a slightly thicker band and a higher platform than the Jimmy Choo version, which I’m sure not everyone will complain about! And the price isn’t too bad either! Available in nude, black and red patent.

While Self-Portrait certainly had its breakthrough with the Azaelea dress, my personal SP favorite was another dress: Ivy, a gorgeous lace-trim tiered midi dress with a Swiss Dot texture and an open lace-up back. I could probably gush about this dress for the next hour or just simply say that it is *the* perfect summer dress! Playful, feminine, delicate, breezy – what more could you possibly ask for in a summer dress? The only bummer is the price of $625 (now $468) which seems reasonable when you consider all the details that this dress has to offer, but still, $468 is a lot of money for a lot of people.

Warehouse Lace Tiered Dress

When I first saw this lace tiered midi dress at Warehouse, it instantly reminded me of the Ivy dress even though it clearly has some obvious differences. I wouldn’t call it a dupe, but the whole concept of the dress, which is available in either black, white or rust by the way, is definitely at least inspired by Self-Portrait’s whimsical aesthetic. Unfortunately, this Ivy look-alike dress ain’t cheap either ($176!), but at least it’s still almost $450 cheaper than the real deal.
