Every few couple years or so, a new designer ankle boot emerges to take over the fashion world by storm. It then quickly becomes an iconic must-have staple in the seemingly endless shoe closets of every fashion-conscious stylist, celebrity, influencer and editor. Right now I feel like it’s Givenchy turn for some serious shoe fame. Their “Prue” ankle boot is a classic, flat biker boot with 4 buckled straps and micro-stud details which you’ve probably seen dozens of times on the feet of your favorite Insta-people by now. It’s a shoe versatile enough to work with a lot of different fashion styles, but still detailed enough to stand out on its own to spice up an otherwise basic or bland outfit. Unfortunately, this much fabulousness comes at a very hefty price: $1.395! Let’s not kid ourselves: that’s a lot of money which probably would be more wisely spent on other, more useful things. You know, boring grown-up stuff like rent, mortgage, food and health insurance. Luckily, we’ve found various just as stylish, affordable Givenchy Prue alternatives that will leave enough money in your pockets to pay the bills.

Steve Madden Reena Studded Buckle Booties

Update (11/14/2017): I guess one Givenchy look-alike wasn’t enough to capitalize on this major shoe trend style, so Steve Madden came up with a second one which looks a little more spot-on to the real deal compared to Madden’s “Pursue” ankle boots. Available in black faux leather for $89.95.

Missguided Studded Four Buckle Strap Ankle Boots

Update (11/07/2017): These studded booties by Missguided might not have the micro-studs going around the sole, but their overall design still very much reminds me of Givenchy, don’t you agree? Price: $60. If you’re a student, you should definitely take advantage of Missguided’s student discount which they offer all year round.

Let’s start with Steve Madden. “Pursue” is an ankle boot which is obviously inspired by the Givenchy Prue above without being a blatant copy which costs roughly 10% of the designer real deal.

Sol Sana Maxwell Studded Flat Ankle Boots

Another great Givenchy look for less option would be this microstud buckle bootie by Sol Sana which is one of the most expensive alternatives as it retails for $200. This ankle boot is heavily inspired by Givenchy’s Prue but not an identical dupe or copy if this is a concern of yours.

A rather spot-on but inexpensive Givenchy Prue look-alike are these faux leather booties by EGO which retail for affordable £34.99.

Office Academic Leather Stud Buckle Boots

Another one of my Givenchy dupe favorites are these lovely Office ankle boots I spotted at ASOS recently. Again, heavily inspired by the pricey designer original, but not an identical 1:1 copy.

Real vs. Steal – Céline Trio Crossbody Bag

by Irina on November 12, 2017

Update: This post has been updated on November 12, 2017. Scroll down to see the new add.

What is it about Céline handbags that makes me want to hand out my credit card, close my eyes and say: “But please, be gentle!“? I don’t know whether it’s the hype surrounding the French fashion house or the countless style bloggers toting around Céline beauties on their arm, but for some reason Céline bags have that enviable “je ne sais quoi“-factor that draws me to them. Not that I am anywhere in the position to actually buy a Céline bag right now. But not now doesn’t mean never, right? But until then, I’ll have to settle for a budget-friendly Céline Trio alternative, I guess.

If you happen to spend some time on Instagram occasionally and follow one or two major fashion accounts, chances are you’re probably already familiar with “Les Bonbons” by Rebecca de Ravenel. These ball drop clip-on statement earrings which are made of lightweight silk, are handmade in India and come in a variety of lengths, materials and colors, have been designed by up-and-coming jewelry designer Rebecca de Ravenel who grew up between the Bahamas and Paris; an influence that is reflected in her aesthetic (check out her fabulous Instagram account) and her colorful designs which are both bold and playful. What Rebecca de Ravenel’s designs are NOT however: cheap! Depending on the design, you’d have to shell out between $295 and $345 for a pair of “Les Bonbons” to call yours! A price not every fashionista would be willing to pay for such a trendy accessory that might be out of fashion by next summer.

Fall has officially arrived now and I am slowly starting to build my winter wardrobe. Acne Studios‘ “Velocite” shearling jacket has been an obsession of mine for several years. I just love the luxe-looking, plush shearling lining, the straps and buckles, the oversized moto look. It’s the perfect winter jacket and just look how fab and cozy all the style bloggers look in their Acne Velocite below. The only thing holding me back to get my own Acne Velocite? The price tag, of course. $2.800 is a pretty steep price.

We have featured many, many shoes and bags from Valentino’s “Rockstud” family already, but must embarrasingly admit that we have missed out on the most popular style yet, the 4 inch high heel t-strap version as seen below. Sorry, guys! So what could possibly be said about this shoe that hasn’t been said before? It’s THE SHOE by Valentino and you’ve probably seen it like a gazillion times in your Instagram feed, in fashion magazines and on the feet of your favorite celebrities and fashion bloggers. But despite the medial Valentino overexposure I am still just as much in love with the Rockstud heels as they day I first saw them! These heels ooze pure elegance and they’re so versatile, too! Dress them up with a lacey LBD or down with some distressed denim, you will look flawless either way! If you can afford them, that is. $995 is not exactly pocket money.

Jessica Simpson “Dameera” Studded T-Strap Pumps

Sole Society “Tiia” Studded T-Strap Heels

Update (12/05/2016): Just found out that Sole Society restocked the “Tiia” heel in both black and nude patent, so if you missed out on these fab Valentino Rockstud dupes the first time round, now’s your second chance to snag these pretty pumps.

You might recognize these studded t-strap heels by Sole Society because we have already featured them in the Valentino Rockstud Kitten Heels Real vs. Steal post a while back. That’s because they look like a hybrid between the 4 inch Rockstud and the kitten heel version and could work as a look for less alternative for either of the Rockstuds. And at $69.95 they’re quite affordable, too! Score!

Kaitlyn Pan Pointed Toe Studded Slingback High Heel Pumps

Favorites first! My personal fave Valentino Rockstud dupe comes from Kaitlyn Pan and I think you’ll have a hard time finding better and more spot-on Valentino look-alikes than the ones they have to offer. I’ve been following Kaitlyn Pan’s product catalogamazon for several months now and they have hands down *the* best-looking designer dupes I’ve seen in a very long time. Sure, these $113.99 heels are not the cheapest Valentino dupes around, but look at the 165 customer reviews raving about their Valentino look for less heels (make sure to also check out the customer’s own photos) and you’ll know this money will be a smart investment as you’ll get a good high-quality dupe that will last you for a while. And did I mention these Rockstud knockoffs come in 19 colors? I simply want them all!

Arturo Chiang “Gracen” Pointy Toe Studded Pumps

Another fabulous Valentino Rockstud alternative are these studded t-strap pumps by Arturo Chiang which come in various colors including black, nude, red, navy and gold. The heel on these is half an inch shorter than the real deal and they’re not quite as spot-on as the Kaitlyn Pan version, but they do happen to be cheaper and are also made of genuine leather, so that’s quite a steal deal if you ask me. A couple of sizes are already out of stock, so you better hurry if you find yourself fancying a pair.

Royou Yiuoer Studded T-Strap Pointed-Toe High Heel Pumps

Here’s another super spot-on Valentino Rockstud dupe for you! It’s by a brand called Royou Yiuoer which obviously is a pretty bad word play on Roger Vivier and is most likely an Asian brand. The quality of these Valentino knockoffs looks pretty decent as does the price of $59.99 for genuine leather pumps, but it’s a relatively new brand to me and the shoes have received only one customer review yet (which gives them 5 stars though), so that’s why I’ll recommend this one with reservation. Order at your own risk! You can choose between 13 beautiful colors and uppers!

Loslandifen Studded T-Strap PU High Heel Pumps

If you’re on a tight budget and need a cheap Valentino fix, these Rockstud look-alike PU heels by Loslandifen might do the trick for you. The quality of these is nothing to get all too excited about, but they look like the real deal, are less than $30 and come in a variety of beautiful colors.
