Every few couple years or so, a new designer ankle boot emerges to take over the fashion world by storm. It then quickly becomes an iconic must-have staple in the seemingly endless shoe closets of every fashion-conscious stylist, celebrity, influencer and editor. Right now I feel like it’s Givenchy turn for some serious shoe fame. Their “Prue” ankle boot is a classic, flat biker boot with 4 buckled straps and micro-stud details which you’ve probably seen dozens of times on the feet of your favorite Insta-people by now. It’s a shoe versatile enough to work with a lot of different fashion styles, but still detailed enough to stand out on its own to spice up an otherwise basic or bland outfit. Unfortunately, this much fabulousness comes at a very hefty price: $1.395! Let’s not kid ourselves: that’s a lot of money which probably would be more wisely spent on other, more useful things. You know, boring grown-up stuff like rent, mortgage, food and health insurance. Luckily, we’ve found various just as stylish, affordable Givenchy Prue alternatives that will leave enough money in your pockets to pay the bills.

Steve Madden Reena Studded Buckle Booties

Update (11/14/2017): I guess one Givenchy look-alike wasn’t enough to capitalize on this major shoe trend style, so Steve Madden came up with a second one which looks a little more spot-on to the real deal compared to Madden’s “Pursue” ankle boots. Available in black faux leather for $89.95.

Missguided Studded Four Buckle Strap Ankle Boots

Update (11/07/2017): These studded booties by Missguided might not have the micro-studs going around the sole, but their overall design still very much reminds me of Givenchy, don’t you agree? Price: $60. If you’re a student, you should definitely take advantage of Missguided’s student discount which they offer all year round.

Sol Sana Maxwell Studded Flat Ankle Boots

Another great Givenchy look for less option would be this microstud buckle bootie by Sol Sana which is one of the most expensive alternatives as it retails for $200. This ankle boot is heavily inspired by Givenchy’s Prue but not an identical dupe or copy if this is a concern of yours.

A rather spot-on but inexpensive Givenchy Prue look-alike are these faux leather booties by EGO which retail for affordable £34.99.

Office Academic Leather Stud Buckle Boots

Another one of my Givenchy dupe favorites are these lovely Office ankle boots I spotted at ASOS recently. Again, heavily inspired by the pricey designer original, but not an identical 1:1 copy.

Real vs. Steal – Céline Trio Crossbody Bag

by Irina on November 12, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on November 12, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

What is it about Céline handbags that makes me want to hand out my credit card, close my eyes and say: “But please, be gentle!“? I don’t know whether it’s the hype surrounding the French fashion house or the countless style bloggers toting around Céline beauties on their arm, but for some reason Céline bags have that enviable “je ne sais quoi“-factor that draws me to them. Not that I am anywhere in the position to actually buy a Céline bag right now. But not now doesn’t mean never, right? But until then, I’ll have to settle for a budget-friendly Céline Trio alternative, I guess.

After writing this blog for more than 9 years and scouring the internet for designer dupes even longer, I hardly raise an eyebrow anymore whenever I come across a budget brand or fast-fashion chain copying a high fashion designer. But when designers – with very similar price points – copy amongst each other? Baffling! Which is exactly how I felt when I recently stumbled upon a pair of frayed satin slides by Stuart Weitzman. I knew I had seen that same style somewhere before, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on where. So after a few days I have almost already forgotten about it when I accidentally saw the Gianvito Rossi‘s “Barth” Sandal which looks so much alike, they’re basically designer shoe twins. Both have the same design, the same details, the same fabric and the same color! The prices, however, are somewhat different, but still close enough together to be both considered luxury shoes with Rossi’s sandals costing $645 (now on sale for $258) and Weitzman’s version being priced at $375 (now on sale for $150). I can’t tell who is copying whom though since I don’t know who came out first with their shoe style. Anyway, both sandals are absolutely fabulous and right on trend with the soft pink tone and the silky satin upper, so you can either go with your personal preference or your bank account because style-wise it’s a close tie between these two.

Update (09/12/2017): Spotted the most beautiful Gianvito Rossi Barth dupe sandals today! They’re by A New Day, Target’s newly launched fashion line, are super affordable at $22.99 and look exactly like the pricey designer version! By the way, I know the label says “Mossimo Supply Co.”, so I guess Target hasn’t said goodbye to Mossimo just yet and probably only had the line rebranded for marketing purposes.

The moment I first laid eyes onto these fancy satin bow slide sandals by Puma which came out as part of the new Fenty Puma by Rihanna collection earlier this month, I knew Rihanna would have another hit on her hands for the fashion-forward, sportswear-loving ladies (…and men since these are also available in men’s sizing). The new styles are supposedly inspired by the luxurious Parisian days of the famously known decadent Queen of France, Marie-Antoinette, the bow slides are a glammed up version of the classic soccer slide with a super cute satin bow adorning the slide strap which come in either a beautiful pastel pink or edgy olive green. The bow slides retail for $90 which is obviously far from being a designer shoe price, but a) these sandals are so in demand right now that they’re almost sold out everywhere and b) not everbody wants to spend almost $100 on a pair of pool slide sandals, so we took a look around to see whether we could find some lower priced alternatives. Spoiler alert: we did!
