I don’t know how they do it, but Yves Saint Laurent makes some of the most iconic shoes I’ve ever seen. Especially their “Tribute” collection is a hit among celebrities, fashion connoisseurs and us totally obsessed shoe freaks. I’ve loved the Tribute sandals from the first moment I saw them, but never got the chance to go for the real deal or snap up one of the various knockoffs (check!) back then when they were considered the “It” shoe of the year. My favorite Tribute sandal was the purple suede version with gold trimming, but the black patent version is of course more versatile.

Aldo “Chelly” T-Strap Platform Sandals

Update (04/25/2017): While browsing the latest arrivals at Aldo, I happened to stumble upon another great Yves Saint Laurent alternative. Say hello to “Chelly”! Apart from the heel which isn’t tapered, “Chelly” is pretty much a spot-on YSL dupe. Available in silver metallic or nude patent for $90.

Wild Pair “Kisme” Platform Patent Leather Sandals

Update (11/22/2016): Check out these super affordable YSL Tribute look-alike heels by Wild Pair! Aren’t they amazing? I guess they’re more likely supposed to be dupes of Steve Madden’s “Kananda” heels rather than the original YSLs as the brand has several other Steve Madden dupes in their collection, but since Madden’s “Kananda” is a pretty good dupe of the Tribute sandals itself, we’re not going to be petty here. They’re available in red, black and nude faux patent leather and cost $39.99.

Office “Nostalgia” Platform Heels

Update (07/06/2016): Spotted yet another almost spot-on Yves Saint Laurent Tribute dupe at Office. Like Steve Madden’s “Kananda” version, this one too, is missing the t-strap on the front, but otherwise the design is so close to the real deal. Available in nude, red and black patent leather as well as gold or rosegold leather and black nubuck for affordable £69.

Fersengold “Paris” T-Strap Platform Sandals

Update (05/01/2016): Just stumbled upon these spot-on YSL Tribute look-alike heels by German shoe brand Fersengold which come in either nude or blue patent leather. I also like the Fendi influencels here with the gold f-letter plate on the platform. They’re not the budget-friendliest steal find at £175, but might be worth the investment if you’re looking for a high-quality YSL dupe.

Update (05/02/2011): Here’s another great and almost identical YSL Tribute look-a-like coming from rsvp. The only noticeable difference is the lower heel. These come in black, fuchsia, red, nude, gold and silver patent. Apart from the black patent version all the other colors have been marked down to a super affordable $55.

Steve Madden “DAARLING” T-Strap Sandals

Update (03/28/2010): Check out Steve Madden‘s second take on the Tribute sandal. Available in black, nude & natural patent, denim and leopard.

I still prefer the first one, but this heel has some major advantages. It is a) not sold out, b) cheaper and c) way easier to walk in because of the lower heel (the platform helps, too).

Steve Madden T-Bar Platform Sandals

Update (12/04/2009): Woohoo! You lucky gals. ASOS is now selling the Steve Madden sandals at the amazing price of £32 at their online outlet store. That is 60% OFF the original retail price! I bought these babies full price six months ago there and they look absolutely fantastic in person. So worth the price.

YSL lovers, today’s your lucky day! These Steve Madden platform sandals have completely sold out everywhere else, but ASOS has still a few of these fabtastic heels in limited sizes available. Be quick to order because this is the final sale and probably also your last chance for a great YSL Tribute knockoff of such great quality. I love mine so much! They are absolutely amazing looking for knockoffs and while £80 were certainly not cheap, I haven’t put a second thought whether or not to buy them and ordered straight away after they added my size. My tip: if your feet are slightly wider than average I suggest you go at least half a size up so your toes won’t get squished.

There have been countless YSL Tribute sandal knockoffs, but only a handful of them were actually decent looking. These YSL look-a-likes by Guess are one of the best knockoffs which are still being sold. So if you haven’t got the chance to grab a knockoff back then, you can now catch up on this!

I have already written in length how much I love everything “Rockstud” from Valentino, so I won’t even start elaborating how I lust over these pyramid studded ankle wrap espadrilles. But the whopping $895 price tag attached to these summer shoe beauties makes them absolutely inaccessible for me. So when I spotted the non-studded ShoeDazzle “Morena” espadrilles shown below, I thought these would be the perfect fit for a DIY Valentino Rockstud project. Personally, I’m not much of a DIYer, but since this DIY idea would only require ironing on a couple of pre-glued studs, the task sounds actually manageable even for absolute DIY beginners like me. What do you think? Are these shoes worth the effort?

A crossbody bag in a handy size and neutral color is one of the best fashion investments you can make. Speaking from personal experience I can say that I get the most use out of my black crossbody bags because they’re so absolutely practical for running daily errands. Valentino‘s “Rock Lock” is a paramount example for such a versatile and stylish bag and I’d love to own it since I’m a big fan of Valentino’s stud adorned bags, but spending two grands on such a small bag? My budget can’t really take that kind of a dent I’m afraid.

Now that Christmas is only 2 days away I know you’re probably super busy shopping for last minute gifts (guilty as charged!), wrapping presents and finalizing your Christmas menu, but there’s always some time to appreciate a beautiful shoe, right? This red suede fringed block-heel beauty by Aquazzura might look familiar as we’ve featured its 4″ stiletto heel sibling in a previous Real vs. Steal post. But as much as we love a sky-high stiletto high-heel shoe, even the comfiest of them still isn’t comfy. Wearing high heels is painful, often exhausting, sometimes even downright dangerous (hello, cobblestone pavement!), so I’m super happy to see mid-heeled block-heels taking the wheel in the footwear trend scene right now. Because happy feet = happy me! And these Aquazzura sandals are a prime example that show that block-heeled shoes can look just as sexy and beautiful as their high-heeled counterparts. Too bad these beauties cost a whopping $785 though! Luckily, we’ve found a few budget-friendly alternatives that will give you the designer look for a fraction of the price.

Well, first off: it’s just as spot-on as the Athena Alexander version, but it is made of genuine suede and also costs $13 less ($84.99). Plus, the available colors (red, blue = my fave, tan and black) are absolutely gorgeous, too.

If you haven’t heard of Mansur Gavriel by now, I suggest you stop whatever you’re doing and go read up on the NYC-based female designer duo now because fashion insiders all over the world have gone absolutely cuckoo over their minimalistic luxe leather bags! Mansur Gavriel’s bucket bag has been especially popular within the fashion world and is constantly sold out due to the high demand and despite the not so budget-friendly price tag of $495 (now: $595) for the “mini” version and $625 (now: $695) for the “large” one. I think the minimalistic design contrasted against the popping interior lining is one of the main reasons why this bag has been so extremely successful. If you can’t afford the beauty of a real Mansur Gavriel bag or just can’t stand being wait-listed, read on to find many great alternatives less than $100.

Steve Madden “BGEMMAA” Drawstring Bucket Bag

Et voilà, Steve Madden to the rescue! Their “BGEMMAA” drawstring bucket bag isn’t a total knock-off, but the similarities are distinct enough to give you the same coveted Mansur Gavriel look. I absolutely adore the red lining here. So luxe-looking, right? Available in various color combinations including black/red, burgundy/blue, tan/blue and neon yellow/blue for an affordable $88 (less if you use the promo code above)! Steal deal alert!
