Alright, I’ll just come out and say it: I like big bows and I cannot lie! And I’m not going to deny! OK, OK, enough with the rhymes and musical references, let’s cut straight to the chase: this suede d’orsay pump by newcomer Aminah Abdul Jillil with the oversized bow on the ankle is a picture-perfect example why I can’t resist anything with a big, fat bow on it. Take a moment and let the beauty of this shoe unfold before your eyes. Don’t you just love how bold and feminine this pump is? Especially in red suede? AH-MAZING! And the best thing is that it ain’t too expensive either: $215 is a solid price for a shoe this pretty if you ask me, but if you can’t justify spending that much on such a statement shoe, we’ve come up with a few budget-friendly alternatives that will give you the same look a little down below.

Another great option are these bow-accented d’orsay pumps which I have come across at Oasap. They only come in two colors, but those colors offered are very lovely, aren’t they? Plus, they’re moderately priced at a little over $70.

Mojo Moxy “Bowie” Oversized Pump d’Orsay Pumps

If you like it a little more girly, then this bow-adorned pump by Mojo Moxy might be the right fit instead. The bow on these is more feminine and less abstract than on the Aminah Abdul Jillil pumps, but the overall look is still the same. Also, I’m totally obsessed with the green color (♥)!

October has arrived which means it’s officially “bootie time“. I have been swooning over Alaïa shoes for years now and I have yet to be disappointed. A few season ago Azzedine Alaïa created these beautiful nude suede high heel lace up ankle boots which have clear cutout mesh panels. Aren’t they absolutely pretty? I can totally see them working with almost anything in a woman’s wardrobe (jeans, dresses, you name it). Unfortunately, Alaïa shoes aren’t known to be budget-friendly… what a bummer!

Chinese Laundry “Lacee” Mesh Panel Lace Up Platform Ankle Boots

These Chinese Laundry lace up platform booties may not be of Alaïa quality, but they surely look a lot like Alaïa, don’t they? The price tag however is a lot nicer at $60.28 (compared to Alaïa’s steep $1.175). Available in blush and black suede.

Though summer is far ahead, these ebullient Christian Louboutin Miss Cristo Platform Sandals are not hard to notice. The straps give this rather casual wedge an elegant touch, while the cork heel maintains an element of minimalism. The bowknot detailing also adds a nice touch of decoration at its best. Such an amazing shoe, but at $595 and already sold out, the look-a-like below is great option.

bebe “Faithful” Cork Wedge Sandals

Update (08/18/2012): At first sight these bebe shoes might not look like an inspired version, but if you look at how the straps run around the wedge sandals you quickly see it’s an almost identical match to the Miss Cristo design by Louboutin.

Mojo Moxy “Sonny” Wedge Sandals

Update (12/21/2011): Just found this Louboutin inspired wedge style by Mojo Moxy. I really like how they made this design their own by spicing up the shoe with studs and a snakeskin-covered wedge platform. LOVE!

Dollhouse “Roza” Cork Wedge Sandals

As much as I adore the Louboutin Miss Cristo Platform Sandals there is no way I can afford them, especially on a student budget. But with the Dollhouse “Roza” Cork Wedge Sandals there isn’t a reason not to have this lavish style. These wedges feature a bow across the vamp, adding a charming appearance to the shoe. These are available in black, chestnut and gold.

So I’m a little obsessed with this woven leather wedge by Givenchy. I think it’ll be a great look to have in your wardrobe and it will go with just about anything! From your cut-off shorts to your long-fitted dress, this shoe is a must have! But I know it can’t be a must for everyone. Especially since the price tag is as high as $795! Hence keep scrolling down for a more wallet-friendly option.

MIA Limited Edition “Sambuca” Wedge Sandals

I really like the rust color of this MIA Limited Edition “Sambuca” Wedge. Such a summery color and really fun to wear. Especially if you want that pop of color! The shoe also comes in ginger and antique brown though as well. All three colors are great options to get the Givenchy look down. Priced at $85.99 (sale price!), I think this wedge is a smart choice.

So the obvious 70s fashion craze is back for spring, and what better inspiration for this trend than these Althea Platform Wedges by Charles Anastase. So these may not be my latest shoe obsession, but they are already sold out! I do like the platform wedge though; it is certainly not very sensible as an everyday shoe, but that really has never interfered with fashion. The design is unique even though it seems a bit simple, but I think that’s what gives off the boho-chic vibe. However, they are sold out and regardless I don’t have the designer budget.

Mojo Moxy “Cher” Wedge Sandals

Though we have months ahead before it officially becomes spring and summer, these Mojo Moxy “Cher” Wedge Sandals are great for early shoppers. I think that the 70s inspiration in these wedges is really apparent, but they are much more wearable. These orange ones are probably my favorite, but they are also available in black and taupe.
