Heels like this one are one of the many reasons why I just freakin’ love Giuseppe Zanotti! Seriously, how much better can it get than these red patent stiletto pumps with a mirrored silver heel? This is what I call absolute shoe perfection! Sure, with its high vamp these look extremely painful to walk in, but us women we don’t wear high heels for the comfort factor, now do we? If I had a spare $650 laying around, I’d so have bought these fire red darlings already!

HOT DEAL: Use promo code “MARSM1” to get 15% off orders of $75+ or “MARSM8” for 20% off orders of $100+ at Steve Madden including free shipping! Offer valid through 03/31/2014. Some exclusions apply.

Well, well, now what do we have here? How about an almost perfect looking Zanotti twin by Steve Madden? The design is staggeringly similar; I’d even say it’s an almost indistinguishable 1:1 copy of the super sexy Zanotti stiletto pump. I think I finally figured out what I want for christmas… (no, not a man, Mariah, but shoes, of course; and these in particular). Get them as well before they sell out which I predict to happen very quickly.

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 $845 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.

Stripes are this season’s biggest trend – can you imagine how happy I am about this since I’ve always loved all things striped? And even though I’m not the biggest fan of vertical stripes, I must say I really like these Balmain stripe skinnies. But – OMG! – $2.038? For a pair of jeans? To me this seems unjustifiable and downright overpriced. But fret not, we have found so many great stripe jeans alternatives, there’s one available for every kind of budget!

Of course Topshop couldn’t leave out such a huge trend. I really like their Balmain inspired skinny jean version. Just wish they also had the zip pockets. But for $80 these are a great and affordable alternative.

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.

How great is this find? I recently stumbled upon these Louboutin knockoffs and was astounded by how similar to the originals they are.

But you better hurry and order fast as I’m sure they will sell out quickly.

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…
