If you’ve never worn flats to work because they seem too informal, these pointy confections by Christian Louboutin may just be the anecdote. They are certainly among the most luxurious I’ve ever seen, and yet oddly familiar… like a pair that Holly Golightly might have pulled out from underneath the bed looking for her crocodile shoes in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Of course, although these are fantastic, perhaps you may want to check out the other options below if your budget doesn’t allow for such a large investment.

Ivanka Trump “Annulio” Pointed Flats

This lovely option by Ivanka Trump, is both ladylike and modern at the same time. Perfectly polished for work, and yet they have a little added flirtatiousness to them as well. If there ever was a pair of flats that could look fabulous with a skirt, it’s got to be these. The pointy toe will elongate your legs, while the small heel elevates the foot just enough to give you support, and not completely betraying you at the end of the day with cramped toes. Plus, the patent leather is very easy to maintain. These are currently available in black, coral, lime, burgundy, grey and nude patent leather as well as matte black leather.

Leave it to J.Crew to offer some spring-infused alternatives made from great quality soft leather, and sure to provide a comfortable fit. At $188, they are a little bit more expensive than your average department store option, but you’ll instantly feel the difference in the way these will mold to your feet. If you love wearing stylish flats, consider investing in a quality pair that you’ll keep reaching for year after year! Plus, choosing a bright shade like Kelly Green is a great way to update your favorite weekend skinny jeans.

Report “Gonzalez” Pointed Flats

If you like to have a pair of shoes on standby for those days where you can’t even fathom wearing any kind of heel, the answer is this pair by Report. Perhaps you might try this more matte version with some sleek black leggings and a sweater dress? I definitely love my heels, but this is one very convincing alternative; especially for when I need to look polished, but my toes require a vacation. This pair is available in black, chestnut or nude patent leather.

Pour La Victoire “Bre” Pointed Flats

If you loved the color choices above, check out even more bright options with this beautifully constructed version by Pour La Victoire. While the shape of the shoe does provide a more polished look, you can really have fun and modernize with a some color by combining a fuchsia pair with your classic gray suit. Wear them also with tailored pants, or tapered capris! And why not invite your pretty a-line and full skirts to the party too? Just make sure to keep those skirt hems above the knee for the most flattering silhouette (shoes pictured are available in various colors and uppers).

Love & Beauty Natural Eye Palette

Shelling out $50 for a beauty item might not sound like the best idea if you’re new to the makeup world or are just starting out to experiment with makeup. Luckily, Love & Beauty has a super similar eyeshadow palette for a steal price of $6.80 that is obviously inspired by Urban Decay’s Naked Palette. This palette has only 10 eyeshadows instead of 12 like the original, but the design is almost identical and the colors seems to be quite close as well. Also available in cold neutrals.

NYX‘ Natural Eyeshadow Palette is another great alternative if you’re looking for a budget-friendly neutral eyeshadow palette. It has only 6 eyeshadows, but they’re very similar to these found in the UD palette and those 6 eyeshadows will create a lot of varied natural eye looks already, so makeup newbies might be better off with this steal-worthy palette.

When it comes to costume jewelry, I’m still undecided whether or not it’s worth taking the splurge. While I do love my beloved YSL Arty Ring, I must admit I haven’t gone all out on other custome jewelry yet simply because I prefer to either buy cheap jewelry or invest in classic gold or silver jewelry from the likes of Tiffany & Co. and others. But all the middle-priced stuff in between? Not so sure about that. This beautiful crystal-studded ring by Vita Fede however just might change my mind. I love how subtle and delicate it is, plus being 24k gold plated it’s not terribly expensive at $150. Decisions, decisions. What’s your opinion on that matter? Would you rather splurge or save?

BaubleBar Ice Peak Pavé Ring

If you can’t make up your mind either or simply don’t want to splurge, here’s a great alternative from BaubleBar that won’t break the bank. The design is very similar to Vita Fede’s V Ring, but the price difference is huge since the BaubleBar version is currently on sale for a very wallet-friendly $20.

Christian Louboutin makes some of the finest shoes in the world. Louboutins are a celebrity’s staple buys and no red carpet would be complete without at least one pair of the red-soled high heels. Louboutin’s “Pigalle” pump is timeless with its classic and sleek design. It’s probably Louboutin’s bestselling and most famous shoe ever. Not to mention expensive.

How great is this find? I recently stumbled upon these Louboutin knockoffs and was astounded by how similar to the originals they are. Just look at the extreme high heel or the pointed toe, it looks just like the real deal. And the best thing: they are on sale right now. But you better hurry and order fast as I’m sure they will sell out quickly.

Let’s talk about wedges for a moment. Just how good are they? I mean, you can either eat or wear them. Pure genius! 😉 All (stale) jokes aside though, wedges are definitely a girl’s best friend. They are the best compromise between extra height and comfort. These slingback espadrille wedges by Céline are admittedly cute, but they don’t really make me want to spend almost $500 on them.
