Dear “Pigalle“, I know you won’t like this, but there’s a new queen in town, her name is “So Kate” aka shoe perfection and she is probably Louboutin‘s hottest and most coveted style at the moment. One look at her and you will instantly understand why. The shiny black leather, the thinning stiletto heel, the perfectly shaped arch – everything about this shoe is just perfect! Plus, while the price of $675 sure isn’t exactly a bargain, compared to what other Louboutin styles are usually retailing for, these here are on the rather budget-friendlier side of the designer shoe price range. Which is also probably the reason why “So Kate” is constantly on the verge of selling out at nearly every e-tailer. Anyway, this beauty of a high heel has definitely taken the #1 spot on my current shoe wish list and until I have saved up the neccessary $675 to bring them home, I’ll settle for a more less expensive Louboutin look-a-like in the meantime.

Shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti is a well-known man on this blog because a) his shoes are absolutely loved by celebrities and b) because his shoes are often copied. And while it’s not cool to copy, I really can’t blame the copycats because shoes as fabulous as these scalloped suede lace-up sandals need to be brought at more affordable price points. At least that’s how I think. My obsession for these Zanotti heels started when I first saw Aimee Song from Song of Style rocking these high-heeled beauties in various of her outfits. I just love the delicate nature of these! They’re incredibly sexy yet still elude a sense of romance. But here’s the deal-breaker: they cost a whopping $1.095 and are pretty much sold out everywhere.

Wasn’t there a moment in every little girl’s life where she has dreamed of being a ballerina? And with ballet flats as lovely looking as these by Chloé, isn’t there still a place in every woman’s heart for that little girl’s dream? Too bad the reality of that $485 price tag keeps most of us away from making that dream come true.

So we’ve already covered quite a few of Stuart Weitzman‘s best-selling shoe styles including the highly coveted Alex Wedges, the 5050 Boots and the Highland/Lowland Overknees, but we happened to miss out on one very important shoe until now: the Nudist – a minimalistic stiletto sandal with two skinny straps running across the toes and the ankle which give the shoe that alluring “barely there”-look everybody is lusting after these days. Over the last two years the Nudist was by far one of the most worn red carpet shoes I have seen yet. The list of celebrities who’ve worn these super sexy heels is seemingly endless (Blake Lively, Reese Witherspoon, Miranda Kerr and Jennifer Lopez to name a few) and personal style bloggers seem to love the Nudist – which comes in a variety of different colors, uppers and variations – just as much. And even though Stuart Weitzman shoes are not the most expensive designer shoes out there, the prices are still everything but budget-friendly. The standard leather version of the Nudist retails for $398, a hefty price for what is basically a stiletto heel with two skinny leather straps attached to it.

Valentino‘s shoe line from the “Rockstud” collection is probably the most popular here on this blog. And even though the Rockstud shoes have been going strong in the fashion community for a couple of years, there seems no sign of declining popularity with these pyramid studded, strappy Valentino shoes. We’ve written about quite a few shoe styles from the “Rockstud” family already and today we’re finally featuring the caged t-strap ballet flats. For a flat, this shoe is about as dressy as it gets; the luxe patent leather juxtaposed the shiny studded straps = perfection! But before you fall hopelessly in love, take a deep breath and look at the price tag: $975! And that’s the lower price limit for this type of Rockstud style. Other variations of the caged flat go as far up as $1.095! Now that’s a lot of money.

Luckily, there are some fantastic and affordable alternatives out there for all of us Valentino-loving fashionistas on a budget. Let’s start with my current favorite Valentino steal find which is the “Delight” by Diavolina, a spot-on Rockstud flat dupe which comes in either black or nude patent. Unfortunately, at $189.95 AUD, it’s a pricey Valentino look-alike and also rather hard to get hold of outside of Australia, but nonetheless, it’s about 80% cheaper than the real deal, so I’d still consider this to be a great steal find if you’re willing to invest in a high-quality Valentino alternative.
