Clutches. I love them, but they sure aren’t the most practical form of bags. Especially those of the evening kind. Clutches usually make me feel like Captain Hook because I always feel tied up with a clutch in my hand. That’s why I totally love Valentino‘s “Va Va Voom” clutch bag with its ingenious studded front handle. Why don’t all clutches have this fingers-free thingy? Total game-changer! Too bad I don’t have $2.145 to afford this beauty of a bag.

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!

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.

Jessica Buurman “LEILA” Bow Tie Ankle Lace Up Flat Sandals

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.

Oh my, it’s been a while, huh? So sorry we’ve been MIA for the last couple of weeks, but offline life has kept us very busy. However, we’re almost fully back now and should return to our regular posting schedule next week at the latest. In the meantime, have some fun with these stunners from Monsieur Christian Louboutin. I know I’ve said it like a hundred times before already, but I think I have found THE shoe. As soon as I laid my eyes on Louboutin’s “So Kate” stiletto heels I was captivated, it has the most perfect arch ever, doesn’t it? And while I would probably opt for the classic black patent, this snakeskin stripe print version is so much more fun, don’t you agree? Only problem? The price tag, obviously. $1.095 – that would pay quite a few bills for this girl here!

Lust for Life “Krush” Striped Stiletto Pumps

While we couldn’t find an exact match for the orange version, we managed to dig out these fabulous stiletto pumps by Lust for Life which you might remember have also come up with a stunning pair of Tom Ford OTK boot dupes. As much as I love the real Loubis, the cobalt blue color (one of my absolute faves!) and the much nicer price tag of $129.99 makes this an easy choice for me. What about you? Real or steal, which one do you prefer?

The curved heel has been making its appearance quite often among stylish footwear lately, adding a futuristic yet minimalistic flair. Not to spare, Maison Martin Margiela brings us a common yet inspiring open toed bootie with a twist. His take on such a popular silhouette makes this design so easy to wear; the versatility goes on without an end just like the price tag. Beautiful, yes, but also extremely pricey. That’s why we have a steal below that is just as gorgeous as it is affordable!

With the current transition from summery warm to a colder climate, this bootie functions perfectly in the often moody transitional weather.

Besides the fact that they are an amazing designer look-a-like, they are also accessible to the masses. With international shipping for an extra fee, they can easily reach any destination.

Fellow vegans and vegetarians unite! Stella McCartney has created an all vegan faux leather handbag to mimic the lavish style, without resorting to animals to achieve a luxurious appeal. Not only is Stella McCartney a lifelong devotee to vegetarianism, she has also an impeccable tailoring and wonderful taste to fulfill the desirable expensive, leather look. This Shaggy Deer Falabella Fold Over Clutch is bold and has a super edgy look and ultimately can be the key accessory to any outfit. As much as I would love to own any piece from her vegan collection someday, especially this one, I can’t afford to pay such a grand price. However, there is no reason to fret since we have such beautiful and affordable alternatives below!

Latico “Crawford” Clutch

There is no reason we shouldn’t indulge in the Stella McCartney style, especially when the price tag is less than 13% (sale price!) of the real deal’s sale price. This “Crawford” Clutch by Latico is certainly more affordable, yet it looks just as expensive. And though the silhouette and structure of this clutch is minimal the overall result is maximum impact. The chain embellishments are edgy but chic at the same time and for utmost versatility one can wear it with a drop-in chained strap or simply as a clutch. Additionally, this clutch comes in an array of colors such as red, taupe, metallic white and mocha leather.

Traffic People “Emily” Chain Shoulder Bag

A favorite steal of mine is this “Emily” Chain Shoulder Bag by Traffic People. It is currently on sale for £25.68, but still pertains and upholds to the appearance of the Falabella Fold Over Clutch. Here it is pictured in the black color; however, the navy blue is just as amazing! It is not only efficient in functionality, but also the best priced look-a-like alternative. For extra savings, one day shipping is free if you are located anywhere in the UK or EU. Although international shipping is available, the downside is that shipping prices become a bit steep (£20 flat fee per delivery for all non-EU countries).
