It seems that every celebrity at one point or another is seen flaunting around in glamorous Louboutins. Whether it’s the sophisticated high heel or a classic flat, Christian Louboutin has become a staple in the closets of the A-listers. The “Pigalle Plato” Platform Pumps are no different as the design is impeccably exhibited with versatility, in an uptown or downtown manner. The platform adds further height to the elevated stature of the shoe contributing to the elegance. Unfortunately, I don’t have $795 to spend on these beautiful shoes, but the alternative below is quite dazzling.

Stellaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!” – must be screamed with as much passion as Marlon Brando does in the classic movie, A Streetcar Named Desire. Stella McCartney please, unchain my heart and wallet from this gorgeous bag you’ve designed! But, my dear and fellow vegan, more than a thousand dollars for a bag that’s not even real leather? Ummm, on what planet does this happen? Oh yeah… how could I forget, the planet named Hollywood!

My personal style includes a mixture of classic designer pieces and inexpensive trendy items. When I saw this striped blazer by Tory Burch (retail price: $325), I knew there was a designer space for it in my closet. The simple shape is given a new look with nautical stripes. I’m already running imaginary outfits through my head!

If you want to add a little stripes into your wardrobe, but don’t want to drop a whole load of your hard earned money, then this Spiegel blazer is an excellent option.

Heels like this one are one of the many reasons why I just freakin’ love Giuseppe Zanotti! Seriously, how much better can it get than these red patent stiletto pumps with a mirrored silver heel? This is what I call absolute shoe perfection! Sure, with its high vamp these look extremely painful to walk in, but us women we don’t wear high heels for the comfort factor, now do we? If I had a spare $650 laying around, I’d so have bought these fire red darlings already!

Steve Madden “LIPSTYCK” Stiletto Pumps

Well, well, now what do we have here? How about an almost perfect looking Zanotti twin by Steve Madden? The design is staggeringly similar; I’d even say it’s an almost indistinguishable 1:1 copy of the super sexy Zanotti stiletto pump. I think I finally figured out what I want for christmas… (no, not a man, Mariah, but shoes, of course; and these in particular). Get them as well before they sell out which I predict to happen very quickly.

The sheer simplicity of this tote by Céline is what makes it an absolutely perfect carryall. It’s strong in its construction, yet doesn’t pack the heavy hardware that many of this season’s “It” bags seem to have. It’s chic enough to carry it everywhere from the office to running errands on the weekend. Plus, the neutral colors will go with everything in your wardrobe! If you’re investing in a piece like this, you’ll want it to work well with what you already have. However, if you are like me and prefer the nuance of switching up your accessories, we have a fantastic steal for you below!

Spiegel Colorblocked Tote Bag

Wear this affordable version by Spiegel the same way you would the high-end design above, but keep the option to switch it out for something different if the mood strikes you. It’s clear you’ll get a lot of mileage out of this bag. It will surely look amazing with your skinny jeans and a white button-down just as with a pencil skirt and blouse for your next meeting. Another great thing is you can use it for travel – just fold it neatly into your weekend bag and you’ve instantly got more room for the return trip.
