Wasn’t there a moment in every little girl’s life where she has dreamed of being a ballerina? And with ballet flats as lovely looking as these by Chloé, isn’t there still a place in every woman’s heart for that little girl’s dream? Too bad the reality of that $485 price tag keeps most of us away from making that dream come true.

Need to add a little playfulness to your spring wardrobe? These heels by Alexander McQueen are both a little bit retro, a little bit modern and have that vintage flair that makes them very desirable. Add a structured bag, and some softer accessories like a scarf or colorful necklace, and you are all set to go. Unfortunately, they are completely sold out. But, you can get a pair just like them for less. Sounds too good to be true? Take a look below!

Moda In Pelle “Constant” Platform Heels

These shoes by Moda In Pelle are the perfect way to show off a little personality in a professional work setting with their classic shape and modern finishes, but they will also work really well with the dressier items in your closet. Plus, as if their great versatility wasn’t enough, the price of this luxe-looking pair is only a small percent of the original design and they are available in both black and taupe.

So we’re back at Alexander McQueen again. I told I am big fan of his designs, so here we’ll go again with another gorgeous pair of footwear he created. These square toe pumps were pretty hot on the red carpet about 6 months ago. They retailed for $595 at Net-A-Porter, but are now completely sold out.

L.A.M.B. “Primrose” Square Toe Pumps

Not being the cheapest alternative ($252.12, sale price), but certainly a very good one is this square toe pump by Gwen Stefani’s brand L.A.M.B. called “Primrose” which comes in either black or plum satin. The heel is slightly different and the pumps have a metal embellishment on each vamp, but otherwise they look quite the same.

Office Point and Square Pumps

This is by far my favorite “interpretation” of Alexander McQueen’s square toe pumps. I love the faux snakeskin pattern and the extreme high heel. These Office pumps seem to be overall well manufactured and clean in design. They are a bit expensive with £70 (~$100), but I am sure they’ll be a great investment. The pumps also come in red and black patent and pewter.

Aldo “Saric” Square Toe Pumps

Another great alternative if you want Alexander McQueen 4 Less are these “Saric” square toe pumps by Aldo. They retail for $90 and were available in black satin like the Alexander McQueen ones, but apparently sold out and now the only colors left are black and red patent and black leather.

Steven By Steve Madden “Sedona” Square Toe Pumps

Of course Steve Madden couldn’t pass upon the chance to create his own version of the square toe pump which is called “Sedona”. His square toe pump comes in black patent with a faux fakeskin pattern, but the style is otherwise pretty similar.
