Real vs. Steal – Chanel Spring 2010 Clogs

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 “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.

Listen up, ladies, we have another Valentino shoe post here and for once it’s not about one from the Rockstud family. After doing like a hundred different Rockstud shoe styles, Valentino finally decided to move on to a softer direction. No studs and no pointy toes anymore, instead followed floral prints and round almond toes. Valentino’s “Bo-y-ch” striped colorblock booties starkly contrast to Valentino’s usual romantic aesthetic. They’re bold and extravagant rather than feminine and pretty and I totally sense a 70s vibe here. It’s a statement boot I would’ve expected from Chloé, but from Valentino? Unusual, admittedly, but I like to be surprised once in a while. Plus, these funky boots totally remind me of those colorful socks probably everyone of us has been gifted in their life at least once by one of their grandmas, aunts or other relatives. Except these cost a hefty $1.375. That would be quite an expensive christmas present!

Choies Striped Colorblock Booties

Update (12/02/2015): Just came across these insanely cute Valentino Bo-y-ch dupes while browsing Choies and immediately wanted to share them with you. Price: $49.99 and they’re also available in a tall boot version.

ASOS “End It On This” Ankle Boots

If you love Valentino’s new funky boots yet can’t afford them, then how about these Valentino Bo-y-ch inspired striped booties I found at ASOS here? They’re obviously not an identical match, but the inspiration is clearly visible I think. And to be totally honest with you, I kind of prefer ASOS’ version because the color selection seems more fitting for Fall and I think the colors here harmonize better than on the real deal Valentinos. What do you prefer? Real or steal deal?

I really wish I would be more of a DIY person because there are so many great fashion DIY tutorials out there and while I would love to try many of them, I simply have to come to terms that my crafts talent is limited. However, those Valentino “Rockstud” DIYs I think even I could handle because they really mostly just require to find a similar shoe and glueing a couple of pyramid studs on it. Doesn’t sound too hard to me. So how about this Valentino Rockstud DIY tutorial then? Banana Republic‘s “Rosella” sandal looks a lot like Valentino’s non-studded little sister and would be just perfect for a Valentino Rockstud DIY project, don’t you think?

A good friend of mine recently bought a Mulberry Bayswater (a gift to herself on her birthday) and for a week straight everyone oohed and ahhed over it at the office. It is a spectacular bag, to be sure, but I think this new Mulberry takes the cake: the Alexa – a slouchier, more casual version of the Bayswater named after British style export Alexa Chung who is a true devotee of the Mulberry brand. If you haven’t heard tell of this bag yet, you will. Speculated to be the “It” bag of the moment, the Alexa sold out instantaneously on Net-A-Porter after being added last week. Restocks are supposed to follow soon, but even still, this beautiful creation is way out of my sad little budget.

Update (02/19/2015): Almost a year after our last Alexa dupe find, here’s another one I spotted over at Chicnova. Their Mulberry Alexa inspired PU bag comes in an array of lovely colors and sells for $73.63. What do you think? Yay or nay?

Melrose Glam “So Soho” Satchel

Update (02/20/2012): Alright, it’s official! This Mulberry Alexa bag look-a-like by Melrose Glam (a brand exclusively available to BagInc as far as I know) is THE look-a-like who eats all the other look-a-likes for breakfast! How do I know? I already own a bag by Melrose Glam (the Alexander Wang Rocco inspired one, review coming in March) and the quality of this bag is ridiculously amazing. Definitely worth the investment. You can already see by looking at this picture that this is a high quality bag (seriously, how gorgeous is the textured leather here?).

GoJane Buckled Strap Tote

Update (11/08/2010): Yet another Mulberry Alexa knockoff and what a fab one that is, right? I just love this budget-friendly alternative by GoJane. The bag comes also in black or ivory, but the pewter version is my personal favorite.

Oasis Sasha Satchel

Update (07/28/2010): Feast your eyes on the most awesome Mulberry Alexa knockoff to date. OK, the color of this Alexa steal version by Oasis isn’t spot-on, but the rest: Wowzers! And believe it or not: the bag is under $60. How great is that?

OMG! How ah-mazing are these OTK gladiator high heel sandals by Altuzarra? Some might say these are a little too Xena, but, personally, I love the warrior princess look and feel of these Gianvito Rossi designed heels. So hot and sexy! And incredibly expensive, too. These come with a price tag of $2.715, my loves! Oh my, oh my!

Chinese Laundry “Three Pointer” Mid-Calf Gladiator High Heel Sandals

There’s no way you could expect the same detail work that went into the Altuzarra designer heels in a $100 budget version, but Chinese Laundry have come up with a pretty neat alternative! Check out CL’s “Three Pointer” – a mid-calf gladiator high heel sandal that looks heavily inspired by Altuzarra’s caged OTK heels. I really like the price on these and think that the shorter length is also way more practical and less over-the-top than the designer over-the-knee original.
