When I first saw the “Bellantomod” Lace-Up Back Open-Toe Booties by Manolo Blahnik, I couldn’t really believe that these are supposed to be Manolos because the designer usually goes for a more elegant and timeless style direction. This high heel though screamed Tom Ford or Gucci to me. It’s a very sexy and stylish shoe; I love the lacing detail in the open back of this so-called “shootie”. As you can see from the pictures below, Vicky B. is also a fan. And who can blame her? However, not everyone of us has VB’s shopping budget, so we came up with a list of possible Manolo alternatives for you.

Nicholas Kirkwood and his shoes haven’t been featured all too often on this blog yet which is a shame because his shoes are fabulous! Case in point: these vividly indigo colored suede lace-up booties which have delicate laser-cut circle panels cut out on the front. And even though these beautiful heels have already been greatly discounted from $950 to $380 (that’s a whopping 60% off!), it’s still a pretty hefty price for many of us Kirkwood-loving ladies out there.

Chelsea & Zoe “Patsy” Laser-Cut Lace-Up Booties

Love the design, but can’t commit to the real deal? Well, then take a good look at these lovely Nicholas Kirkwood inspired booties by Chelsea & Zoe! They might not come in the same indigo hue, the design however is absolutely spot-on with these peep-toe faux suede booties! Plus, I kind of prefer the ocean blue Chelsea & Zoe version anyway. Also available in black and burgundy red.

I am usually not too fond of Louis Vuitton bags. I especially dislike their monogrammed range because I just don’t see the appeal of having a brand’s logos plastered all over my bag looking like a tacky advertisement. However, Sofia Coppola designed a bag for Louis Vuitton that got me obsessed! The SC bag is pure and simple elegance; I absolutely adore the minimalistic design and the no-fuss attitude it exudes. It’s such a beautiful bag in such a beautiful color! But, oh boy, is this bag expensive! $4.650? Like seriously, Louis Vuitton?

A.L.C. Small Lucas Duffel Bag

Update (05/09/2015): If you’re looking for a really high-quality Louis Vuitton SC alternative then A.L.C.‘s “Lucas” duffel satchel might be a good fit. The design is very similar to LV’s SC bag and I bet the craftmanship is superb, too, but you’d have to spend $895 on this beauty. Which, however, is still only about 1/5 of the LV SC bag’s price, so it’s a great deal overall.

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.
