If you are familiar with the fashion blogosphere I’m pretty sure you will all remember the studded Chloé Susan (also sometimes called “Susanna” or “Suzanna”) ankle boots below as they’ve created quite a buzz among fashion bloggers in 2009. Even though they cost more than a grand, people bought them like crazy and the boots soon were sold out everywhere.

Chloé Pre-Fall 2008

The studded ankle boots were part of Chloé’s Pre-Fall 2008 collection and came in an array of colors like red, white, black and green (my personal favorite!).

Kate Bosworth & Sienna Miller Love Chloé

Famous fashionistas Kate Bosworth and Sienna Miller both sported the studded ankle boots in red. Kate was literally obsessed with those boots and wore them whenever possible last year. And can we blame her? They are so cute and both women looked absolutely fabulous wearing them, didn’t they?

Lemaré “Chantal” Studded Ankle Boots

Update (11/11/2016): OMG! Just spotted these insanely similar Chloé Susanna boot dupes by Lemaré! Aren’t they absolutely gorgeous? And so spot-on to the real deal, too! They come in various colors and uppers and you can even choos between different metal hardwares (silver or gold). The price is a little steep at €260, but I don’t think I have seen a Chloé Susanna dupe as spot-on as this one, so it might be worth the investment! You better don’t wait around for them to go on sale because these babies will sell out fast!

Update (09/20/2016): Run, don’t walk and get these kickass Chloé dupes by L’idea by Lori ASAP because these beauties are by far the best and most spot-on Chloé Susanna knockoffs I’ve seen yet! They do come at a price, yes, but just look at the quality and all the details – a splurge worth making if you ask me. Anyway, these are definitely going to sell out quickly, believe me, so if you feel yourself fancying these babies, don’t contemplate too long and buy them now before it’s too late!

Price: $132.63 (sale price!) & available in black, wolf grey and black brown.

ITC reader Mat gave us a heads-up on these Chloé Susan boot look-a-like by Office. It sure looks like the identical sister of Office’s “Manic” boot which sold out a year ago or so. Available in black or brown.

Jeffrey Campbell “Starburst” Studded Ankle Boots

Update (05/30/2012): Jeffrey Campbell‘s highly-coveted “Starburst” booties are now available for European fans for at British shoe e-tailer Office. Better get them quick before they sell out!

Free People always seems to get the best Jeffrey Campbell styles. First they got the awesome Ann Deumeulemeester lace-up boots and now they sell knockoffs of the iconic Chloé studded ankle boots (Free People call this style “Northern Lights” while JC and other retailers named it “Starburst”). Don’t they look almost identical? The heel is a bit off, but the studs and buckles are pretty close to the original. The only downsides are that the Jeffrey Campbell studded booties don’t come in red. But the boots are available in black, white and brown, so if you always wanted a budget-friendlier alternative, these Jeffrey Campbell knockoffs are probably your last and only chance as the Chloé booties are a couple of seasons old now.

I don’t know how they do it, but Yves Saint Laurent makes some of the most iconic shoes I’ve ever seen. Especially their “Tribute” collection is a hit among celebrities, fashion connoisseurs and us totally obsessed shoe freaks. I’ve loved the Tribute sandals from the first moment I saw them, but never got the chance to go for the real deal or snap up one of the various knockoffs (check!) back then when they were considered the “It” shoe of the year. My favorite Tribute sandal was the purple suede version with gold trimming, but the black patent version is of course more versatile.

Wild Pair “Kisme” Platform Patent Leather Sandals

Update (11/22/2016): Check out these super affordable YSL Tribute look-alike heels by Wild Pair! Aren’t they amazing? I guess they’re more likely supposed to be dupes of Steve Madden’s “Kananda” heels rather than the original YSLs as the brand has several other Steve Madden dupes in their collection, but since Madden’s “Kananda” is a pretty good dupe of the Tribute sandals itself, we’re not going to be petty here. They’re available in red, black and nude faux patent leather and cost $39.99.

Available in nude, red and black patent leather as well as gold or rosegold leather and black nubuck for affordable £69.

They’re not the budget-friendliest steal find at £175, but might be worth the investment if you’re looking for a high-quality YSL dupe.

Update (03/28/2010): Check out Steve Madden‘s second take on the Tribute sandal. Available in black, nude & natural patent, denim and leopard.

I still prefer the first one, but this heel has some major advantages. It is a) not sold out, b) cheaper and c) way easier to walk in because of the lower heel (the platform helps, too).

Steve Madden T-Bar Platform Sandals

Update (12/04/2009): Woohoo! You lucky gals. ASOS is now selling the Steve Madden sandals at the amazing price of £32 at their online outlet store. That is 60% OFF the original retail price! I bought these babies full price six months ago there and they look absolutely fantastic in person. So worth the price.

YSL lovers, today’s your lucky day! These Steve Madden platform sandals have completely sold out everywhere else, but ASOS has still a few of these fabtastic heels in limited sizes available. Be quick to order because this is the final sale and probably also your last chance for a great YSL Tribute knockoff of such great quality. I love mine so much! They are absolutely amazing looking for knockoffs and while £80 were certainly not cheap, I haven’t put a second thought whether or not to buy them and ordered straight away after they added my size. My tip: if your feet are slightly wider than average I suggest you go at least half a size up so your toes won’t get squished.

So how adorable are these purple/pink gradient cat eye sunnies from Quay Australia? VERY I’d say. And apparently so do a lot of you because these pastel-hued shades kept selling out in a hot minute and were constantly out of stock for weeks. The craze has finally calmed down a little, so if you find these sunglasses as cute as I do and have the shopping budget to opt for the real deal, happy shopping! However, if you’re looking for a quick and cheap sunglass fix to get your face fashionably through summer, check out the $18 sunnies I discovered at Urban Outfitters which look so much alike. The saving potential of $42 is quite convincing here, don’t you agree? What’s your opinion on this sunglass shopping matter: cheap ($60) or cheaper ($18), which one would you pick?

Summer may be officially over, but it’s never too late for a good pair of sunglasses, right? Case in point: these geometric, wire-framed “Love Punch” shades. When I first saw celebrities and style bloggers flaunting these shades, I assumed they were by a big household name like Dior or Prada, but I then learned that these are actually by a South Korean eyewear brand named Gentle Monster which until then hasn’t been on my radar yet. I looked at the rest of their collection and these guys certainly know their stuff when it comes to designing beautiful sunglasses, so splurging on these razor-thin $290 shades might be a substantial but smart investment. However, if you can’t justify this kind of price tag, keep on reading to find a couple of budget-friendly alternatives that won’t break the bank.

SojoS Cat Eye Mirrored Sunglasses

So these sunglasses by SojoS are an absolute dead ringer for the “Love Punch” shades by Gentle Monster except these will cost you $12.99 instead of $345. They come in a variety of different lense and frame colors, so feel free to opt for more than one pair at that price. Don’t expect them to last a lifetime, but if you just want to wear them for a season or two, these are a good alternative.

Aldo “Qilalla” Sunglasses

Another great and possibly more durable Gentle Monster “Love Punch” dupe would have to be these sunglasses by Aldo. They cost slightly more ($16!), but also look sturdier and less fragile than the SojoS sunnies, so if you’re a clumsy person like me and happen to accidentally sit on your sunglasses from time to time, these Aldo shades might be the smarter choice for you.

Chloé sure knows how to fire up a bag lover’s heart. First we had the “Faye“, then came the “Drew” and in 2017 we have the “Nile” which I am pretty certain will be Chloé’s next big It bag if not – THE – It bag of the year. And once again Chloé has turned to its trusted saddle bag shape to combine both novelty and functionality by adding an equestrian-inspired brass bracelet that serves both as a decorative detail and functional top handle, depending on how you carry the bag. The “Nile” comes in three sizes: small (as seen in the picture below, price: $1.550), medium (price: $1.690) and a super cute macro sized minaudière clutch in a half-moon silhouette (price: $1.450). Due to the high demand most of the “Nile” styles and colors are currently either sold out or on backorder, so the “Nile” is pretty hard to come by these days – especially the small sized “Nile” in motty gray, Chloé’s signature taupe neutral color. Luckily, we found a few budget-friendly options if you don’t want to wait until this beauty of a bag comes back in stock or simply can’t afford the designer price tag.

Last but not least is this Chloé inspired crossbody bag by Cesca which looks a lot like the “Nile” without being a blatant knock-off design. The price tag of $29.99 isn’t too bad either.
