How gorgeous are these Cat-Embroidered Suede Slippers by Charlotte Olympia? They are a combination of modern design and a classic silhouette. The mini golden heel exhibits pure luxury and the cat-face embroidery adds a fun, young, and unexpected touch. Unfortunately, the price reflects all of these qualities and makes these wonderful flats merely unattainable. However, we have very similar options below for each and every budget!

For casual footwear with certain uniqueness, these Liliana loafers exemplify how a casual flat/loafer should be like. They are chic and can be very elegant; however, they are also equally fun and interesting to look at! Plus, priced at $19.40, they make a very worthy and inexpensive steal while mimicking the designer look pictured above!

Blink Cat Face Slipper Shoes

I have to admit, these Blink Cat Face Slipper Shoes are probably my favorite! They are a mixture of the high-end luxury designer version yet they also maintain the casual-like feel as the steal above. Though they are a bit pricier than the Liliana loafers, they are more refined in terms of their structure. Priced at £34.99 (approx. $55), they seem to be the most similar to the Charlotte Olympia version while still being affordable! Also, for an extra shipping charge they can be shipped to almost every destination!

You might remember these Jimmy Choo booties from our Copycat Math post from a few months ago. At that time, there was only a loosely inspired version by Steve Madden around, but now we’ve discovered a few more budget-friendly Jimmy Choo look-a-likes and decided these sexy cutout booties deserve a post of their own.

Here we have another pair of the typically OTT Giuseppe Zanotti pumps. The silhouette is all very similar with the sky-high towering heel and some sort of exaggerated design. As usual, my initial liking towards Giuseppe Zanotti footwear always arises some mixed feelings, which later turn into a slight footwear obsession. Undeniably, these exaggerated peep-toe platform pumps are a form of creative vision. Likewise, they look amazing and really elongate one’s legs for a super flattering finish. I really love how Gabrielle Union paired these pumps with a simple yet elegant red dress.

Sam Edelman “Alexa” Peep-toe Platform Pumps

Although Zanotti is known for his innovative style, Sam Edelman also brings an inventive touch in the footwear industry. Greatly mimicking the designer deal above, these “Alexa” Peep-toe Platform Pumps have a very similar shape and structure. And though the general motif is very comparable, the price tag makes a huge difference! These are not only futuristically beautiful, but also quite affordably priced at $130! Aside from this bright purple version pictured below, they are available in black suede as well.

I haven’t written about Barbara Bui shoes for a long time, but these shiny black python print platform high heels definitely deserve a mention. At first they looked Alexander Wang-ish to me due to their sexy yet sporty vibe which is a signature style of Wang. I was quite surprised to learn that these are actually one of Bui’s creations. What didn’t surprise me though? The steep price tag of $1.375! Because Barbara Bui + that kind of “Made in Italy“-craftmanship comes at a price.

Most of us won’t be able to afford the Barbara Bui heels, but with a little saving we might get the second best thing to the real deal which are these fabulous Bui look-a-likes by MIA Limited Edition. They’re not exactly what I’d consider a steal at $229 and I really wish they’d kept the pale pink insole, but the overall look is so staggeringly similar that I really don’t care too much. And since white heels are going to be huge this year, these are also available in white.

If you loved the “Early” ankle boot by Tabitha Simmons, you’ll probably fall in love with “Eva” as well as it is the high-heeled equivalent of Simmons’ “Early” ankle boot. I usually don’t get much use out of my peep-toe/open-toe booties, but I find these here so absolutely fabulous that I don’t really care how not practical they are! Unfortunately though, they are also very expensive. $1.145 – I don’t know about you, but that kind of money would pay quite a few bills in my house!

MICHAEL Michael Kors “Brena” Peep-Toe Booties

Now look at these amazingly similar looking peep-toe booties by MICHAEL Michael Kors! So close to the Tabitha Simmons original but $920 cheaper! I think I even prefer the Michael Kors version in black leather because the smaller platform and the overall design looks a little sleeker to me. Available in black and burgundy leather as well as black suede.
