And we’re back to Chanel. Back to the now uber-famous and highly popular Chanel espadrilles, to be exact. We have already written about the black mesh pair and this time we’re showing you the just as lovely canvas version. And while I do think that they are really beautiful and would make a great pair of summer shoes, there’s absolutely no way I’d pay more than $500 for a pair of espadrilles! Not gonna happen, not even if they’re Chanel.

I am vehemently refusing to call Yves Saint Laurent by its new brand name: Saint Laurent. Sorry, Hedi Slimane, but changing the logo to some random, faceless font and removing the iconic Yves in YSL, that’s just a tremendously stupid idea (imho) and I do not condone you stripping off some of the most precious heritage from one of the most iconic fashion brands in the world. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, how pretty are these woven YSL Tribtoo pumps?

If you couldn’t care less about labels or logos and are just looking for a pretty shoe in the style of the YSL pumps shown above, then take a look at these Steve Madden heels. They’re not quite as refined looking as the real deal, but they do have that same preppy, casual college look, don’t they? Ooh, these also happen to be on clearance for less than $50 and they come in black suede/black patent as well.

Now I love it when shoes remind me of other things as well. Like these navy canvas pumps by Charles by Charles David who not only look like cute shoes but mostly remind me of a preppy college blazer. And though I wouldn’t define myself as real life Blair Waldorf, I do find these heels extraordinarily charming with their deep navy canvas upper and the cute brass buttons on the vamp. Also, did I mention they’re on sale (down from $109.95) and come in black, too? Helloooooo, SOLD!

Cork, canvas and navy. Now doesn’t this sound like the perfect nautical-inspired summer shoe? Yves Saint Laurent has come up with yet another lustworthy shoe in the form of these “Deauville” cork platforms. Just looking at these makes me want to spend my summer on a yacht lavishly sipping on a bunch of cocktails. The $695 price tag brings me back down to earth rather quickly though.

Steve Madden to the rescue! Look, it’s another almost identical YSL copy. The only visible difference to me is the missing indent on the cork wedge platform. Everything else looks spot-on. Available in navy, black and natural fabric.
