Christian Louboutin is the mastermind behind the designer footwear aesthetic. Often considered to be one of the most well known designers, his designs are truly never lackluster and always exude luxury. Capturing our attention a few months ago were the Pigalle Plato Pumps, and now these Pigalle 120 Patent-Leather Pumps do just the same. This papaya-pink color featured below is simply amazing with the addition of a pointed toe. Before, I never really appreciated any pointy toe shoes, however these pumps have sincerely changed my perspective. Priced at $625, I, for one will not be purchasing these any time soon. Conversely, take a look at more affordable versions of these pumps below!

Aldo “Stessy” Neon Stiletto Pumps

Update (04/22/2016): Spotted these neon pink Aldo pumps and thought they’d be a great alternative if you’re looking for a budget-friendly alternative to the neon colored Louboutin Pigalles above. The silhouette of these stiletto pumps is more spot-on to Louboutin’s “So Kate“, but I think it also serves well as a dupe for the Pigalle. Also available in various other colors and uppers.

Alloy “Molly” Heels

Our most affordable steal, priced at $14.99 (sale price!), are these Alloy “Molly” heels. Simply put, I love this color! With summer shortly approaching, I have been craving bright colors in my wardrobe and this shoe is the perfect way to incorporate them. These also come in neon yellow for even more vividness. Truly an eye capturing shoe, one can make quite a statement in these heels.

Devious Sexy-20 Stiletto Pumps

Out of all the featured look-a-likes, this one by Devious appears to be the most significant because it very closely resembles the Louboutins. The patent shine, color, and super elongated heel are perfectly intact and maintain that Louboutin-esque look. With this type of shoe, it’s very difficult to go wrong especially when it radiates such a bold energy. Ultimately, these can be worn as a transition to summer and even in the winter for a nice pop of color.

Topshop “GAME” Pointed Court Shoes

Topshop is definitely one of my favorite stores due to their eclectic wardrobe varieties. Not to mention, these “Game” Pointed Court Shoes are absolutely beautiful. Though these are a bit pricier than the other alternatives above, I believe that they will become a permanent staple in one’s closet. They complement any outfit, and provide that extra vitality to spice up a dull look. I would love to pair them with perfectly tailored pants, but the wardrobe possibilities are simply superfluous.

When it comes to me obsessing over shoes it usually happens with high heels only. However, if it’s a shoe by Valentino I most likely will love it no matter whether it’s a sky-high stiletto or a flat gladiator sandal like this one. And I absolutely adore these studded summer sandals! Who wouldn’t anyway? They’re utterly chic without compromising on the comfort factor and the gold rockstuds really set these shoes off. I love how LeAnn Rimes wears her Valentinos with shorts and breezy tops. Too bad I don’t have her shoe shopping budget because at $945 these would have been quite the investment in terms of summer footwear.

I was so happy to have stumbled upon these amazingly similar bebe gladiator sandals. They do miss one horizontal strap, but otherwise they’re a fabulous Valentino look-a-like. And did I mention they’re currently on sale for $39.99 (were $59.99)? What a great deal, right? But hurry up, some sizes are already out of stock as these summer sandals are figuratively flying off the shelves.

The eco-conscious Stella McCartney has designed yet another great Chamois Falabella bag made from 100% Polyester, and still exceptionally fabulous. You can carry this roomy shoulder bag to work along with your laptop bag and it will still look great when you meet up with friends or a hot date afterwards. It will even transition nicely into the weekend. And who doesn’t love the hardware detail? That little bit of edge gives off the perfect amount of playfulness on an otherwise classic shape. The original does have a pretty high price tag considering the materials used, but the construction is flawless. Loving the look but can’t afford the real thing quite yet? We’ve got a pretty sweet tentative option below.

Urban Expressions “City Lights” Chain-Trimmed Bag

Urban Expressions is another fantastic vegan handbag brand that carries lots of well-priced styles that look just like high-end designer originals. I would wear this particular bag with a modern silhouette to enhance its urban feel, keeping my outfit tailored and accessories minimal. Some faux-leather leggings and a tunic or some wide-leg jeans and a fitted knit top would work perfectly; especially since the detailed chain embellishment will draw in all the attention you need! Excited yet? Besides black, you can also get it in other colors, too.

This fantastic Valentino Bow d’Orsay Pump may look a little familiar to you… that’s because we featured the red version here on ITC back in July 2009. But nude heels are so hot right now that we felt compelled to revisit this pair. They’re a totally fresh take on nude – sculptural and feminine at the same time.

I am usually not too fond of Louis Vuitton bags. I especially dislike their monogrammed range because I just don’t see the appeal of having a brand’s logos plastered all over my bag looking like a tacky advertisement. However, Sofia Coppola designed a bag for Louis Vuitton that got me obsessed! The SC bag is pure and simple elegance; I absolutely adore the minimalistic design and the no-fuss attitude it exudes. It’s such a beautiful bag in such a beautiful color! But, oh boy, is this bag expensive! $4.650? Like seriously, Louis Vuitton?

A.L.C. Small Lucas Duffel Bag

Update (05/09/2015): If you’re looking for a really high-quality Louis Vuitton SC alternative then A.L.C.‘s “Lucas” duffel satchel might be a good fit. The design is very similar to LV’s SC bag and I bet the craftmanship is superb, too, but you’d have to spend $895 on this beauty. Which, however, is still only about 1/5 of the LV SC bag’s price, so it’s a great deal overall.
