I know I already mentioned that Aquazzura is having quite the fashion moment with bloggers right now, but WOW!, I then went on to discover another one of their latest top sellers: Wild Thing, a delicate suede high heel sandal with intricate lace up tassels and a fringed vamp. Now I don’t know about you, but even though the shoe looks lovely on its own, I wasn’t too compelled at first. But then I started seeing all those gorgeous personal style bloggers donning their Wild Things on Instagram and all of a sudden I found myself completely obsessed with this shoe! I love how many of the bloggers used it to either add a pop of color or to compliment their already colorful outfit. I so wish I could lavishly spend $785 on a pair of shoes, but rent is not gonna pay by itself unfortunately.

Ivanka Trump “Hethal” Suede Fringe High Heel Sandals

Update (03/22/2017): Juicy details coming up with a new steal find! As you might know Aquazzura has filed a lawsuit againgst the Ivanka Trump brand last year for allegedly copying their highly popular “Wild Thing” design. As far as I am informed, the lawsuit hasn’t been settled yet, but I guess the folks at Ivanka Trump are either not particularly worried ooooor really pissed off at Aquazzura because Ivanka Trump released a new shoe design that looks A LOT like the “Hettie” sandal with only a few minor changes such as the metal hoop on the fringed vamp and the missing tassels on the laces which IV replaced with metal caps instead, which, coincidentally or not, are also heavily used by Aquazzura (e.g. on the “Christy” flats). Now THAT’s a bold move when you’re in the middle of a (possibly? probably!) multi-million dollar lawsuit! Really curious to see how that copycat feud is going to turn out. In the meantime, you can purchase these admittedly lovely shoes for a budget-friendly price of $90.99 (sale price!). Make sure to use promo code “LTDAYS” at checkout to get an extra 20% off regular and sale items at Lord & Taylor (offer valid through March 29th at 11:59 PM EST, some exclusions may apply). This would lower the price of these shoes down to less than $80.

Maiden Lane Fringed Ankle-Wrap Suede Sandals

Update (03/22/2017): To take some pressure off of Ivanka Trump though, she’s definitely not the only one copying Aquazzura (obviously, just look at this long list of “Wild Thing” dupes here). Maiden Lane decided to hop on the “Wild Thing” trend bandwagon as well and thus came up with an almost spot-on look-alike shoe. The only noticeable difference is the heel height which is significantly lower on the Maiden Lane version which I personally really like because it makes the shoe so much more w/bearable. I just wonder whether Maiden Lane decided to go with a lower heel because they didn’t want to anger Aquazzura too much and be the possible cause of yet another copycat lawsuit? We’ll probably never know. Anyway, these heels are available in red, taupe and black suede for $129. But hurry, some sizes are already out of stock!

Can we please have a moment of OMG!-silence for this AH!-mazing Balmain blazer? Consider me obsessed big time. If there ever existed something such as the perfect blazer, this gold-buttoned double-breasted navy wool-twill blazer which comes with Balmain’s signature razor-sharp silhouette would definitely be one of them.

Stylekeepers “You Set Me Free” Double-Breasted Blazer

Update (08/01/2016): Just discovered this spot-on Balmain dupe by Stylekeepers in a beautiful khaki green for $145 AUD. If you prefer a more classic color, check out the “Sweet Success” blazer which looks similar to this one and comes in black.

Banana Republic Nautical-Style Basketweave Blazer

My personal favorite Balmain look for less alternative is this nautical basketweave blazer I discovered at Banana Republic recently. All the important Balmain details are there: a fitted silhouette, double-breasted front, gold buttons and a beautiful deep navy color. BR’s version has a couple differences such as a different material, but they’re rather minor and overall it’s still a gorgeous and budget-friendly alternative for the pricey Balmain blazer. Especially so if you take advantage of the 50% off sale promotion which is currently running at Banana Republic because it cuts down the price of this blazer down from $169.99 to $84.99 (that’s a saving of $2.300,01 compared to the real deal). Super steal deal alert!

Veronica Beard Seaside Double Breasted Blazer

Now this nautical blazer by Veronica Beard is probably the closest match to the real deal Balmain in terms of overall design, but it does cost almost $600, so it ranks as my current second favorite Balmain dupe. You would save a whopping $1.790 by opting for the Veronica Beard version though, so I still consider this blazer to be a pretty good bargain nonetheless!

Brooks Brothers Wool Double-Breasted Blazer

Another gorgeous blazer and pretty awsome Balmain alternative is this lovely navy blazer by Brooks Brothers. The key details are spot-on Balmain, Brooks Brothers is known for their high-quality tailoring and did I mention this beauty of a blazer is currently on sale for $274 (was $548). Sure, it’s not a steal at that price, but it might be worth the investment because a navy blazer is so versatile.

Vero Moda Military Blazer

And here’s a little little something for all you European Balmain lovers out there! These military-inspired double-breasted blazers by Vero Moda are a pretty spot-on Balmain dupe for less than €50 (sale price!). You’re welcome.

J.Crew Double-Breasted Blazer

Not available in navy, but these blazers by J.Crew also reminded me of the Balmain one above because the design and silhouette are so similar. If you’re all about the navy color, check out this other J.Crew blazer which I found at J.Crew Factory for $79 (sale price!).

If you really want to snatch a steal deal here, these Balmain inspired blazers by Missguided which cost $56 might be a considerable look for less option. It’s just too bad these don’t come in navy.

I only have one word for this choker necklace by Céline: OBSESSED! One of the most amazing statement necklaces I’ve seen in the last few years. I just love the chunky gold chain links with the massive ID tag, they make the necklace look uber-luxurious (and also quite heavy), don’t you agree? And just like every other piece coming from the French design house, this necklace has become quite the “It“-thing to have. I’m not sure how much it costs, but even if one had the funds to splurge on this highly coveted necklace, it’d probably be very hard to come by now that it has become so popular.

It’s not quite as chunky and massive as the real deal and also longer, but it still mimics the overall look. A matching id braceletcj available as well.

It’s been a while since we last featured a jewelry piece by Céline on this blog, so here you go: Céline’s knot bracelet which is available in various colors and sizes has made quite the round in the fashion blogosphere lately. The design strongly reminds me of Tiffany’s Love Knot Bangle with the biggest difference being that Céline’s version is left open in the back. I’m not sure what the retail price is for this bracelet, but pre-owned pieces start at approximately $400 which I think is quite the hefty price for a gold-plated brass bangle.
