I know you’re going to love this! Remember the gorgeous blue Cinderella-like Manolos Carrie wore at the end of the Sex and the City Movie? Yeah, I couldn’t get them out of my head either. The classic design and the bold blue hue make them great contenders for your favorite formal footwear.

P.S.: Also available at Neiman Marcusls, Bergdorf Goodmanls, Nordstromls & Barneysls.

Sex and the City Loves Manolo Blahnik

In the movie Carrie said they cost $525, but due to the vast demand retailers almost doubled the price to an outrageous $965 making them a fictional purchase for most of us shoe addicts who are living on a budget. What a bummer!

Badgley Mischka “Nichole” Embellished Satin Pumps

Update (06/12/2016): Badgley Mischka‘s “Nichole” isn’t available in cobalt blue satin (yet!), but otherwise it’s an almost spot-on dupe of Manolo Blahnik’s Hangisi Pumps, don’t you agree? Available for $215 in either magenta satin or gold or silver metallic.

SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker “Maddalena” Pointy Toe Satin Pumps

Update (01/21/2015): So basically Sarah Jessica Parker decided to dupe Manolo Blahnik’s highly popular “Something Blue” pump for her own shoe line SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker. The very same shoe which she has worn in the above mentioned Sex and the City movie. And she put a price tag of $545 on it, too. I don’t think her “good friend” Manolo will be too pleased finding out about this.

RSVP “Sincere” Satin Pumps

Update (06/14/2012): Found yet another pair of Manolo Blahnik look-a-likes, again by RSVP. Available in 4 different colors: black, bronze, cobalt blue and silver satin. If you’re looking a higher heel, check out “Simonecj” by RSVP which isn’t quite as spot-on as “Sincere” but has a disctinctly higher heel.

RSVP “Zaza” Blue Satin Pumps

Update (09/23/2009): Stumbled upon these awesome Manolo Blahnik knockoffs by RSVP today. Look what I found! If you missed out on the Martinez Valero heels or just couldn’t justify the $160 price tag, these satin pumps by RSVP look almost identical, but are $60 cheaper. Available in blue, black, ivory and white. Grab these knockoffs while you can, I’m sure they are going to sell out super fast. RSVP also has a flat heeled version of the Manolo Blahnik look-a-likes called “Cassiecj” ($99) which looks exactly like the Martinez Valero version except with a low heel.

Shiekh Mitzy Hachi-200 Satin Pumps

Update (09/23/2009): And here’s another alternative to the Manolo Blahnik Something Blue Satin Pumps. I know these satin pumps by Shiekh aren’t exactly knockoffs, but the blue satin and the vamp embellishment reminded me of the Manolo Blahniks above and since these here resemble the Sedaraby pumps by Blahnik famously worn by Carrie Bradshaw a lot, I thought I just put them here as a budget-friendly alternative for under $50. Also available in pink and black satin!

Martinez Valero “Zenith” Blue Satin Pumps

Do not despair however! Because Martinez Valero has finally heard our prayers! He came up with an almost identical pair of his own blue satin pumps which also have the vamp embellishment, but cost only about 1/10 of the original Manolos. So if you are in need of beautiful yet affordable bridal shoes, these here might be your best bet. But hurry, once the masses get wind of these Manolo Blahnik look-a-likes, I guarantee you, they will be gone in a minute!

If Schutz hasn’t been on your radar yet, I think these sultry-looking caged heels named “Juliana” are about to change that in a second. But let’s get the facts first: Schutz is a Brasil based footwear brand which has been around for 20 years now, but has only gained significant momentum in the last 3-4 years. Schutz’ success partly stems from the influx of fashion bloggers and famous Instagrammers wearing their shoes and “Juliana” seems to have been an especially popular shoe style of theirs (see picture collage below). You can often find designer-inspired styles in Schutz’ collections, but they always manage to infuse those inspired styles with the brand’s own unique aesthetic. I’m not sure whether “Juliana” is a designer-inspired style (if so, I couldn’t tell), but I absolutely adore it anyway! It’s such a sexy and flattering high heel and I just love the spider web-like, diamond-shaped cut-out design. Total shoe hotness! And while $190 isn’t a terribly expensive price for shoes (if you compare it to those of designer shoes, of course), there’s still room to save here, I think!

Worldwide shipping is available, by the way. Total steal deal alert, everyone!

Balmain is all the rage right now. The label gets worn a lot these days. Balmain’s Spring 2009 collection was such a great success! One of the most wanted items from that collection were the studded embellished high heel sandals. Amazing, right? After hitting the shelves of Net-A-Porter and priced at a whopping $2.300, these heels completely sold out within just a day or two. If you can afford the real thing, I recommend to invest in them. If they are way out of your budget, no need to panic! We have found a bunch of affordable Balmain alternatives for you.

When it comes to shoes, I don’t mind mine to look a bit bondage-y because it instantly adds sex appeal and confidence to any outfit. That’s why it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’m quite obsessed with these buckled multi-strap high heel sandals from Italian shoemaster Giuseppe Zanotti. But I can love these heels all I want, it won’t change the fact that they’re way out of my budget at more than $700 and that’s already the sale price! This means no Zanottis for me just yet.

Very much the modern update on a classic pointy-toe pump, this design by Christian Louboutin is perfect for the fashionista who wants to be the first to add another sexy pair of heels to her wardrobe. While most versatile in black, (the way Rihanna and Lea Michele wear theirs), if you’ve got the budget to also get them in neon yellow… you can count on your feet getting a considerable amount of attention all season and beyond. And considering the popularity of this pair among Hollywood’s most stylish stars, it’s no wonder you can’t find them in stores. But, the good news is other designers are definitely catching on and look-a-likes have begun to emerge… One of the first designs to echo this coveted futuristic design at an affordable price is shown below…

Wild Rose Posy-01 PVC Ankle Strap Pumps

If you are a huge fan of the designer look above, then why not have a little fun with this version by Wild Rose? While it’s definitely not worth a huge investment, if you’re one to try many different styles, you can have a lot of fun wearing these. I do wish they had a little bit of a higher/skinnier heel and lower cut toe, but for ca. $30 you can play with this trend and show a little pop of neon under some trousers during cocktail hour. Pick one other accessory in a complimentary neon shade (like a cuff or a great belt) to really pull the outfit together and make it look effortless. Perhaps try the bright orange pair under some navy pinstripe trousers, a white blouse and a couple bright bangles in gold and magenta.
