You know how I know we’re good? Because we never forget a shoe. Or a handbag. Or a face. OK, so not the last one. Back in the old days (you know, 2005) the fashion world saw the introduction to the “It Bag” – a bag that became every starlet’s must have accessory. One day, readers (stay with me), Mary Kate Olsen was spotted carrying a gorgeous black, studded bag that no one could identify but that everyone immediately wanted. A year later the bag (eventually attributed to the talented, Alexander Wang) was made available to the public. It was then known as “Coco”; it is now known as “Rocco”; I can afford neither one.

Melrose Glam “Alexa” Studded Leather Bag

UPDATE (04/26/2011): I just stumbled upon this fantastic and virtually identical Rocco look-a-like by Melrose Glam which is available at BagInc. Love it! It’s a little pricey, but a) it’s made of real leather and b) they offer free worldwide shipping on all orders of $99+. Plus, you can get 10% OFF your entire order with our exclusive coupon code “INTHEIRCLOSET“. Yup, that’s how much we love you! ;-) – P.S.: I now own this bag and it is AH-MAZ-ING (review here…)! So, so worth the investment! Just read the various 5-star customer reviews. Also available in various other colors.

Wet Seal Stud Bottom Satchel

I have to be honest, the last time I shopped at Wet Seal I was looking for something to wear to the school dance (in other words, it was 1998), but by golly perhaps Wet Seal deserves another look! Their Stud Bottom Satchel is a pretty darn great dupe of the Alexander Wang bag. True, it’s not made out of leather, but I know there are vegans among us who actually prefer that. For a mere $24.50 this is a hot bag to add to your arsenal.

It’s always hit and miss for me when it comes to Jimmy Choo, but if I like one of their styles chances are I really like it a lot. The “Marble” Mesh Bootie is the Puritan sister of “Quinze” which is basically the same shoe only adorned with embellishments. And while I do have a soft spot for mesh booties, I don’t see myself shelling out almost $900 for a pair anytime soon.

I have no clue how to spell the brand, but Nymulgogi has come up with amazingly close Marble look-a-likes which are available in either black or nude. The price of $72 ain’t too bad either.

The shoe which can be worn all year long, weather-permitting in some cases, is this “Lisse” Side Cutout Ankle Boot by Christian Louboutin. It features a rounded toe, super sleek high heel, and a slight cutout on the side hence its name. Though it is so minimalistic, it is similarly just as flattering yet it merely exudes a luxurious look. Although the one featured below is leather, it is also available in blue suede which lends itself well to warmer climate. And since it is an ankle boot, one can really wear anything with it. The major downside is the colossal price tag of $895; therefore, we have a great steal below!

BCBGeneration “Hellen” Suede Ankle Booties

UPDATE (10/17/2013): Came across these Louboutin inspired suede booties by BCBGeneration. My gut feeling tells me it’s a rebranded version of the Sole Society booties below. “Hellen” vs. “Helena”. $99.95 vs. $79.95!

Paris Hilton “Abigail” Ankle Booties

These “Abigail” Ankle Booties are practically identical to the Louboutins, but come at a much more affordable price of $114.99. It’s amazing how similar-looking the two shoes are, considering that these booties are by Paris Hilton while the ones above are by Louboutin. They feature a slight cutout on the side, a semi-rounded toe, and, of course, have a stellar heel just like the designer beauties. Aside from the black leather featured below, these are also available in grey and brown leather. Also, what is particularly interesting is that these heels have pink soles which mimic the classic red-sole Louboutin look even more.

Very much the modern update on a classic pointy-toe pump, this design by Christian Louboutin is perfect for the fashionista who wants to be the first to add another sexy pair of heels to her wardrobe. While most versatile in black, (the way Rihanna and Lea Michele wear theirs), if you’ve got the budget to also get them in neon yellow… you can count on your feet getting a considerable amount of attention all season and beyond. And considering the popularity of this pair among Hollywood’s most stylish stars, it’s no wonder you can’t find them in stores. But, the good news is other designers are definitely catching on and look-a-likes have begun to emerge… One of the first designs to echo this coveted futuristic design at an affordable price is shown below…

Wild Rose Posy-01 PVC Ankle Strap Pumps

If you are a huge fan of the designer look above, then why not have a little fun with this version by Wild Rose? While it’s definitely not worth a huge investment, if you’re one to try many different styles, you can have a lot of fun wearing these. I do wish they had a little bit of a higher/skinnier heel and lower cut toe, but for ca. $30 you can play with this trend and show a little pop of neon under some trousers during cocktail hour. Pick one other accessory in a complimentary neon shade (like a cuff or a great belt) to really pull the outfit together and make it look effortless. Perhaps try the bright orange pair under some navy pinstripe trousers, a white blouse and a couple bright bangles in gold and magenta.

‘Tis the season to get your spike on! From spiked heels to spiked drinks – I am so down! Which is why this Pigalle “Loubie” should totally be in my stocking. But at over $1.000 and the fact that it’s sold out – ol’ St. Nick won’t be dropping these babies off anytime soon! No worries though, all my naughty girls; we found a nice lil’ knockoff below.

And these pretty pumps as well! “Bahia” by STUDIO TMLS is not as spiked or as high as the Pigalle, but for about roughly 10% of the original cost, I think we can deal with these few exceptions. But not spiking my drink with enough of the good stuff is a whole other story. ;-)
