I’m currently trying to build/extend my jewelry collection which is a rather tough task since I just can’t get my mind used to spending hundreds of dollars on costume jewelry. For example, I really adore this pavé link bracelet by J.Crew, but $125 seems like a lot for a bit of shiny base metal, don’t you agree? That’s why I’ve been on the hunt for something more budget-friendly with a similar design…

UPDATE (12/05/2013): While this Armitage Avenue pavé chain bracelet is admittedly not a steal because it’s only slightly cheaper than the original, it might become a sensible alternative once it goes on sale.

bebe Chainlink & Crystal Bracelet

… And I made a great find at bebe. Their Chainlink & Crystal Bracelet isn’t a 100% match because it has only a few pavé’d links but for a 1/4 of the J.Crew price you’ll get the same look without breaking the bank.

Last week we showed you the gorgeous turquoise suede version of Christian Louboutin‘s “Super Domblasle” cork platforms and today we’re highlighting the quite as lustworthy shiny patent version. I’m still torn on the extreme platform, but all in all I do love the design. The price? Not so much.

Nine West “Troischic” Wedge Sandals

UPDATE (02/15/2012): Came across another great and affordable Louboutin alternative. These wedges by Nine West do have a few differences, but overall they still share the same style. While I like the black version I’m even more in love with the brighter options like orange and yellow.

GUESS Tunsa “Cork” Platform Wedges

UPDATE (07/25/2011): Here’s an almost identical version of CL’s “Super Dombasles” by GUESS. And did I mention they’re on sale? Score! Available in black, white or nude patent.

bebe “Leah” Cork Wedge Sandals

Even though bebe is known for their sky-high heels, in the case of copying the “Super Dombasle” they weren’t quite brave enough to go all the way and copy the 3 inch platform as well. Instead they reduced it by 50% and put a silly flower on the ankle strap; probably to distract from the fact that otherwise it’s pretty much an identical twin of the CL version. But yes, the flower is detachable. Thank God!

Real vs. Steal – Chanel Spring 2010 Clogs

by Celine on January 23, 2015

UPDATE: This post has been updated on January 23, 2015. Scroll down to see the new add.

Some shoes take time to grow on me; others I want immediately. The studded clogs from Chanel‘s S/S 2010 runway fell into the latter category. I don’t know if it’s the 60s-70s clothes kick I’ve been on recently or maybe just the fact that I love how nude shoes of all kinds elongate the leg (that 4 inch heel helps, too), but I prayed to the fashion gods above that someone would come out with a knock-off (the Chanel shoes being out of my budget and all). Usually, my prayers of that kind get answered – by the Steve Maddens and Jeffrey Campbells of the world – and I was not disappointed…

Jeffrey Campbell “Karl” Clogs

UPDATE (02/27/2010): Jeffrey Campbell has released a new version of the Charlie clog named “Karl” with a raffia fabric upper in either navy or beige. So pretty!

Jeffrey Campbell “Charlie” Clogs

I just received these Jeffrey Campbell “Charlie” clogs (I ordered them immediately after seeing them) and I have to tell you – they’re just as fabulous as I imagine Chanel’s to be. That scary 4 inch + heel is surprisingly comfortable to walk in and I just love their retro spirit. From the chunky wooden heel to the gold studs, these are truly an excellent knock-off. And for $178 (see retailers listed below for more prices), they’re really a steal. The clogs are available in either beige, black or tan.

Today I felt like showing you a fancy shoe. And of course, you can’t go by speaking about fancy shoes and not mention Italian shoemaster Giuseppe Zanotti in this regard. So here you have one of his rather fancy shoes; sparkling in a beautiful gold hue with a bold snake-effect leather texture and a sky-high stiletto heel. Who knew mules could look so sexy, right?

Well, hello there Giuseppe Zanotti darlings! You look quite nice. I love your serpent gold ankle strap detail along with the snake-embossed leather and the pin-thin stiletto heel of yours. How about you both hop into my shopping cart, huh? Oh, wait a moment, is that a $1.600 price tag I spot on you? Uhm, well, it was really nice meeting you. Gotta go now. Bye!
