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.

I know we’re a galaxy away from summer yet, so it might not be the best time to write about summery gladiator sandals in the middle of winter, but when this very sandal has been designed by la Grande Dame of French fashion, Madame Isabel Marant, you kind of have no choice but to post it. We had quite a few reader requests for the studded Lester strappy block heel sandal below and it took us a while to come up with a few budget-frienldy alternatives, but finally, here they are…

Mollini “Jalis” Studded Sandals

First up is this studded sandal by Mollini. It’s not an identical look-a-like, but similar enough to be mistaken for Marant, I think. Plus, it’s on sale and available in black, too!

Dolce Vita “Jerica” Studded Gladiator Sandals

Another alternative are these gladiator sandals by Dolce Vita. I wouldn’t consider them a dupe, but they do have a very similar look to the Marant shoes, wouldn’t you agree? Also available in other colors.

Sam Edelman “Dion” Stud Sandals

This one by Sam Edelman is also more of an inspired-by option rather than a full-blown knockoff. But the look and feel reminds me of the Marant sandal above, so I decided to include it in the list.

Real vs. Steal – Chloé Madeleine Duffle Bag

by Roseanne on March 4, 2013

Update: This post has been updated on March 4, 2013. Scroll down to see the new add.

For a long-term investment that will take one through ages of evolving fashion, this Chloé Madeleine Duffle Bag is an item that will simply never go out of style. It has an ideal structure that is classic but still very much contemporary. This also greatly reflects in the colossal price of $2.130, which is not very surprising due to the luxury factor behind the Chloé brand. Since most of us are not able to afford this noteworthy handbag, we have found a similar look-a-like below for a great budget price!

UPDATE (03/04/2013): Stumbled upon this lovely duffle bag in pink by Stylistpick which instantly reminded me of the Chloé Madeleine. Only £35 and also available in blackls!

Alloy “Alyse” Duffel Bag

The similarities between the handbag above and the “Alyse” Duffel Bag by Alloy are simply booming, except for one major perfect distinction which, of course, is the price! If you want to purchase a handbag which can be practically worn with any day-to-day attire and still have that casual, luxury touch, then this handbag is for you. Priced at only $39.90, this duffel bag will not break your budget and give you a similar look to that of the expensive Chloé Madeleine. The neutral cognac color is absolutely ideal for any wardrobe choices. Be sure to use the any of the promo codes for some extra savings!

Chloé has the most beautiful shoes, and I can confidently say the same about these Two-Tone Double Strap Wedge Sandals. Although they have a colossal price tag, to start off on a positive note, they are currently on sale for a milder budget of $555. It may sound like that is not much of a discount, but it is 30% off! Usually I would move on, but these are truly hard to resist. I really love the color combo—as usual, I love the neutral color palette. However, the steal below is the perfect look-a-like for the perfect price! These wedges make the first summer shoe and can be the ultimate way to accessorize an outfit for day or night. Hence, Julianne Hough simply looks amazing these wedges!

Mossimo “Patricia” Fabric Covered Wedge Sandals

UPDATE (02/17/2013): Just stumbled upon another budget-friendly Chloé wedge look-a-like. These Mossimo wedge sandals look very similar to the Chloé originals but cost only $29.99 and come in an array of different color combinations.

DV by Dolce Vita “Janna” Wedge Sandals

So why invest in an enormously priced shoe, when one can purchase these “Janna” Sandals by DV by Dolce Vita where the difference is barely discernable. Not only are these fairly priced at $89 $34.85, they also come in several color combos. These seem perfect to pair with a day dress and even denim for a simple, casual, and elegant look. Not only does the wedge heel help earn some bonus points for comfort, the beauty of this shoe transpires in a heartbeat. What do you think?

See by Chloé may be the more affordable secondary collection following Chloé, but $595 is still quite pricey for a handbag. The Poya Vintage Leather Satchel is rendered perfectly; with girly and feminine detailing yet a sturdy structure. It is the perfect go-to satchel for everyday use and it makes luxury appear to be so effortless. I really like this caramel color as it is particularly neutral and compliments various colors and patterns. For an affordable take on the “Poya”, be sure to check out the unique option below!

ASOS Leather Scallop Edge Satchel

This Leather Scallop Edge Satchel by ASOS may not be an exact copy of the handbag above, but it maintains very similar detailing which ultimately is the highlight of the bag. This satchel features a scallop trim and gold-hued metal clasp closures. It also has a shoulder strap giving it an extra edgy vibe. One can pair this with really anything, and pull off a simple, elegant, and casual look. It is also made from real leather and is priced quite nicely at $71.27 (sale price)! Plus, this bag is also available in black!
