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.

First ones in line would have to be these lovely side bow pumps by Jessica Buurman.

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 (♥)!

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.

Update (04/03/2017): Another great Aquazzura alternative are these block heel sandals by BP. which are made of genuine leather and retail for $59.95. They miss the fringe detail on the front strap, but the overall design is still quite similar to the designer version above. Available in blush, blue and black suede.

Kaitlyn Pan Fringed Suede Lace-Up Tassel Block Heel Sandals

My favorite Aquazzura Wild Thing alternative however is this one by Kaitlyn Pan. Why? 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.

And we’re back to Chanel. Back to the now uber-famous and highly popular Chanel espadrilles, to be exact. We have already written about the black mesh pair and this time we’re showing you the just as lovely canvas version. And while I do think that they are really beautiful and would make a great pair of summer shoes, there’s absolutely no way I’d pay more than $500 for a pair of espadrilles! Not gonna happen, not even if they’re Chanel.

We have received quite a few reader requests for various Chlo√© bags lately. And yes, we agree, if there’s ONE thing Chlo√© is exceptionally good at, it’s their bag range. The French fashion house always manages to incorporate that certain je ne sais quoi-factor that makes every one of their bag styles so desirable. My current personal favorite is the “Drew”, a cute little rounded crossbody bag on a metallic chain. Sadly, Drew’s price tag isn’t quite as cute.

Be My Bags “Seraglio” Chain Shoulder Bag

Update (03/23/2017): There’s a new Chlo√© Drew dupe favorite in town! Actually, I think this is an old favorite to be honest because I’m fairly sure the “Seraglio” bag from Be My Bags is the same one as the Unita “Wony” dupe further below which at some point simply vanished on Amazon one day and I was so happy to finally discover it online again. As you can see the quality looks absolutely superb, the design is spot-on to the Chlo√© real deal and the price of $120 for a genuine leather bag (made in South Korea) seems reasonable. Also, I just adore all the colors this bag comes in, I can’t even pick my favorite from all the gorgeous pastel colors! The “Seraglio” bag also comes in a smaller size ($112). Please be warned though: I haven’t personally purchased from Be My Bags yet nor have I any experience with them as a brand (they seem to be relatively new to the market), so please buy at your own risk, be cautious and make sure to use a payment method that offers buyer protection such as PayPal for instance. FYI: After some emailing with the Be My Bags shop owner I am happy to report that I was able to score an exclusive 5% discount for our lovely readers. Simply use promo code “IN_THEIR_CLOSET” at checkout (please note that orders are finalized in Canadian dollars, hence the price tag of $160 CAD at checkout). Steal deal alert!

Update (08/02/2015): If there’d be something like a “Best Bag Dupe“-Award, can we please all agree this one would probably go out to these gorgeous Chlo√© Drew dupes by Unita?! I am beyond obsessed with the pastel mint and lavender color and love that these are sturdy-looking high quality bags made of genuine cowhide leather. According to the product description, the bags are being manufactured with utmost care in South Korea. I know these babies ain’t cheap with a price tag of over $100, but if one can trust the pictures, the price is definitely worth the investment. The bag comes in 5 colors: black, tan, mint, lavender and taupe grey (what’s your personal fave?).

I know I already mentioned that Aquazzura is having quite the fashion moment with bloggers right now, but WOW!, I then went on to discover another one of their latest top sellers: Wild Thing, a delicate suede high heel sandal with intricate lace up tassels and a fringed vamp. Now I don’t know about you, but even though the shoe looks lovely on its own, I wasn’t too compelled at first. But then I started seeing all those gorgeous personal style bloggers donning their Wild Things on Instagram and all of a sudden I found myself completely obsessed with this shoe! I love how many of the bloggers used it to either add a pop of color or to compliment their already colorful outfit. I so wish I could lavishly spend $785 on a pair of shoes, but rent is not gonna pay by itself unfortunately.

Ivanka Trump “Hethal” Suede Fringe High Heel Sandals

Update (03/22/2017): Juicy details coming up with a new steal find! As you might know Aquazzura has filed a lawsuit againgst the Ivanka Trump brand last year for allegedly copying their highly popular “Wild Thing” design. As far as I am informed, the lawsuit hasn’t been settled yet, but I guess the folks at Ivanka Trump are either not particularly worried ooooor really pissed off at Aquazzura because Ivanka Trump released a new shoe design that looks A LOT like the “Hettie” sandal with only a few minor changes such as the metal hoop on the fringed vamp and the missing tassels on the laces which IV replaced with metal caps instead, which, coincidentally or not, are also heavily used by Aquazzura (e.g. on the “Christy” flats). Now THAT’s a bold move when you’re in the middle of a (possibly? probably!) multi-million dollar lawsuit! Really curious to see how that copycat feud is going to turn out. In the meantime, you can purchase these admittedly lovely shoes for a steal price of $39. Make sure to use promo code “LTLOVE” at checkout to get an extra 15% off regular and sale items at Lord & Taylor (offer valid through May 22nd at 11:59 PM EST, some exclusions may apply). This would lower the price of these shoes down to $33.15.

Maiden Lane Fringed Ankle-Wrap Suede Sandals

Update (03/22/2017): To take some pressure off of Ivanka Trump though, she’s definitely not the only one copying Aquazzura (obviously, just look at this long list of “Wild Thing” dupes here). Maiden Lane decided to hop on the “Wild Thing” trend bandwagon as well and thus came up with an almost spot-on look-alike shoe. The only noticeable difference is the heel height which is significantly lower on the Maiden Lane version which I personally really like because it makes the shoe so much more w/bearable. I just wonder whether Maiden Lane decided to go with a lower heel because they didn’t want to anger Aquazzura too much and be the possible cause of yet another copycat lawsuit? We’ll probably never know. Anyway, these heels are available in red, taupe and black suede for $129. But hurry, some sizes are already out of stock!
