Mix No. 6

Dear “Pigalle“, I know you won’t like this, but there’s a new queen in town, her name is “So Kate” aka shoe perfection and she is probably Louboutin‘s hottest and most coveted style at the moment. One look at her and you will instantly understand why. The shiny black leather, the thinning stiletto heel, the perfectly shaped arch – everything about this shoe is just perfect! Plus, while the price of $675 sure isn’t exactly a bargain, compared to what other Louboutin styles are usually retailing for, these here are on the rather budget-friendlier side of the designer shoe price range. Which is also probably the reason why “So Kate” is constantly on the verge of selling out at nearly every e-tailer. Anyway, this beauty of a high heel has definitely taken the #1 spot on my current shoe wish list and until I have saved up the neccessary $675 to bring them home, I’ll settle for a less expensive Louboutin look-a-like in the meantime.

Steve Madden “Daisie” Stiletto Pumps

Update (04/19/2017): I also discovered these stiletto pumps by Steve Madden which actually more resemble Louboutin’s “Pigalle Folliesls” heels, but since both Louboutin styles are very similar in terms of design, the Maddens suit as an alternative here as well. Available in various colors and uppers.

Guoar Pointed-Toe Stiletto Pumps

Update (01/08/2017): Came across these Louboutin look-alikes by Guoar. These seem to be of the “Made in China”-kind of designer dupes, so you better don’t expect top noth quality here, but for $48 these might be a good So Kate alternative (customer reviews average a 4 star rating with plenty of self-submitted buyer’s photos, so you can make an informed buyer’s decision). What I really, really liked about these Loubie dupes though is the variety of colors these come in: 31 (either in faux patent, leather or suede). Love!

Kaitlyn Pan Pointed-Toe Stiletto High Heel Pumps

Update (07/13/2016): There’s also a fabulous So Kate dupe available by Kaitlyn Pan for $99 and which also comes in nude patent. The design is spot-on, it’s made of genuine leather and if you read the customer reviews for the brand’s other designer inspired shoes, you’ll know you’ve found yourself a good designer dupe with these Louboutin-like beauties. The only drawback (if you consider it to be one) is that the sole is pink instead of Louboutin’s signature red. But everything else looks exactly like Louboutin’s So Kate.

Steve Madden “PROTO” Pointy-Toe Pumps

Et voilà, check out “PROTO” by Steve Madden! Yes, I know it’s not a total spot-on dupe and that it’s not as delicate and immaculately curved as the real deal Louboutins, but “PROTO” is probably still the best shot you’ve got at “So Kate” on a budget. At least for now. $52.47 (sale price!) and you’re wearing Louboutin for less, girl! Available in various lovely colors and uppers: black, blush, pink, white, red, yellow and natural snake.

I have yet to come across an Alaïa shoe that I don’t like or covet. His footwear creations are always the right amount of edgy, sexy and creative. Just take a look at these super hot leather and stretch crisscross stilleto sandals! Imagine how awesome these would look with a leather leggings and a structured white blazer! They’re currently on sale at Net-A-Porter (which is a good thing), but even the sale price is still pretty steep at $1.347,50. Some day… some day I will own a pair of Alaïa heels! Too bad it probably won’t be these ones.

So who doesn’t love a good lasercut high heel sandal? I know I do and it seems like fashion bloggers love ’em just as much. These B Brian Atwood black suede beauties are absolutely gorgeous, don’t you agree? I love them in both the black and the bright purple hue. However the $425 price tag is a little too steep for me.

So this black and white sandal bootie by Gianvito Rossi might seem familiar to you because we’ve recently featured a similar two-tone style from the very same collection. I’m really, really into black and white lately, so this heel is right up my alley. The price however? Not so much.

I know pencil skirts aren’t the most comfortable to wear and that crop tops aren’t to everyone’s taste as well, but personally, I do love the concept of both. Especially when put together. So when I spotted this gorgeous white lace pencil skirt at Topshop I knew I had to pair it with the lovely striped crop top I’ve seen the day before. A little red bag, nude heels, a dramatic cat eye and a few glitzy accessories finish off my springy budget look. Do you like it?
