So, lace-up flats again today. Are you already sick of seeing them everywhere yet? Stuart Weitzman has been really killing it in the boot department lately (Highland OTK boot, anyone?), so of course they had to join the lace-up flat trend bandwagon as well. May I introduce you to “Gilligan”, a beautiful suede lace-up d’Orsay flat with a 0.5″ stacked heel and absolute style blogger favorite. I love every single detail about this flat except for the price which is $398 (now on sale for $253). If you love the look but not the price, keep on reading to find some fantastic Weitzman alternatives for much, much less.

Louise et Cie “Abbatha” Lace-Up d’Orsay Flats

Another personal favorite of mine are these lovely lace-up flats by Louise et Cie. They don’t come in suede unfortunately, but the rest of the design is pretty much identical. Plus, these are currently on sale for $79.99 (down from $139).

Mango “Cristina” Pointed Toe Flat Shoes

Also a great alternative for half the price of the Vince Camuto version is this faux leather lace-up flat by Mango which looks just like the Stuart Weitzman real deal, but costs only $49.99 and comes in either black or ivory.

Steve Madden “Sunshine” d’Orsay Lace-Up Flats

I also adore these lace-up flats from Steve Madden which aren’t an identical dupe, but similar enough to double as a budget-friendly Weitzman alternative. This flat looks actually like the perfect symbiosis of Aquazzura’s “Christy” and Stuart Weitzman’s “Gilligan”, don’t you agree? These beauties come in various beautiful colors (sand, light pink, gold, snakeskin and black) and at $69.95 they’re quite budget-friendly as well. By the way, a taupe version with a non-gold heel named “Blondie” is available at Steve Madden (Canada)ls.

Ava & Aiden “Alexandra” Pointed-Toe Lace-Up Flats

While these Ava & Aiden lace-up flats are the least likely of a “Gilligan” dupe in this list, I still wanted to include them here because I think they’re absolutely fabulous and have a very similar look to the Weitzman flats above. These come in black, grey, blush and tan and are currently on sale for under $70.

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.

The Highest Heel “Hottie” Pumps

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.

While doing my usual blog tour I discovered this great post by Refinery29 where they gave advice on the perfect outfit for a job interview and I loved the featured look so much I had to give it my own “budget look” spin. The combination of red, white and navy is so refreshing yet the outfit still looks work-appropriate and professional (I opted to include a knee-length skirt though). Especially great for any interviews in the creative department.

Obsessed With… Turquoise Shoes!

by Irina on January 10, 2011

I’m counting the days until I get to fly to beautiful Thailand (FYI: 6 left!) and pretty much everything revolves around this vacation in my head by now. Remember the film The Beach with Leonardo DiCaprio? Well, did you know they shot it on a Thai island? Yeah, paradise, guys. Since I’ve been going through hundreds of images of Thai beaches I’ve been hugely influenced by the beautiful turquoise hue of the water there. So I kind of became obsessed with the idea to acquire some turquoise footwear. Because nothing says beach vacation quite like a pop of turquoise!

Budget Look – Cruise 2011

by Irina on January 8, 2011

I have to admit this ain’t my best budget look in terms of the “budget” part; because this outfit sums up to a whopping $357.70. However, each item is rather affordable on its own, so I figured I’d still publish it as a “Budget Look“. For the styling part of this outfit I’m quite proud of myself. I know self-praise is socially frowned upon, but I can’t help but keep staring at my own creation here. I’d love to wear this look head-to-toe, it’s quintessentially what I’d call a typical cruise look: a crisp white dress, oversized shades, turquoise accessories with gold accents, summery wedges, fun nail polish and a little bronzer to round it off. What do you think of it?
