While I admittedly do not know much about The Row other than it’s a fashion label launched by the Olsen twins, I do know that I really, really like their “April” Bow Satin Slides. Intendedly or not, these sandals combine three current fashion trends: 1) knotted bows on 2) flat slides embedded in 3) shiny satin fabric. It’s all about laid-back comfort footwear these days and I have to admit: I like it! What I don’t like though is the $795 price tag on what is basically just a thong sandal. You’re cute, April, but you’re not that cute! We’ll talk again in the sale section.

Sam Edelman “Dariel” Studded Bow Flat Thong Sandals

Update (07/06/2017): Discovered these almost spot-on April dupe sandals by Sam Edelman which look a lot like the real deal but have some extra studs added. Available in various colors, uppers and prints for $70 (sale price!).

If you’re not willing to wait until the real deal goes on sale, feel free to take a look at these fabulous slide sandals by Kensie. They’re almost a spot-on “April” dupe but so much cheaper! I also love the added blush pink color! And who wouldn’t love the price of $47.70? Add to cart, please!

GoJane Bow Em Gee Satin Slide Sandals

Still not convinced? How about these fabulous and super affordable The Row look-alikes I found at GoJane then? They have the same spot-on design, come in a variety of lovely summer colors including mint green and periwinkle blue and are currently on sale for a steal-worthy $10.25! Definite steal deal alert!

Mango Bow Satin Sandals

And lastly, if you don’t want an obvious designer knock-off, check out this satin bow slide sandal I discovered at Mango which I think is a wonderful alternative to The Row’s “April” slides. These are from Mango’s “Premium” collection, so the price of $149.99 is higher than we are used of Mango, but they are still more than $600 cheaper than the real deal, so there’s that.

Can you believe half of the year has almost already gone by? Time flies, my friends, and summer has officially arrived – at least in our calendars! In order to celebrate the seasonal change, I created my first 2015 summer budget look to properly welcome the season of pool parties, BBQs, tan lines and cool drinks. For this look I took to the summer sky as my source of inspiration: baby blue with a little bit of cloudy white here and there and splashes of summery yellow everywhere in between.

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.

Budget Look – Stripes, Yellow & Blue

by Irina on March 10, 2014

I’ve spoken so much about the stripe trend lately one might think I have slowly gotten to the point where I and stripes are dunzo, but sorry to disappoint you: not. gonna. happen. EVER! However, I do like to update them with a touch of Spring now that we’re almost halfway through the month of March: in this case it’s in the form of blue and yellow accessories. What do you think of my colorful stripey budget look?

I think I have already written repeatedly that I am usually not a huge fan of Louis Vouitton. This dislike however is mostly related to LV’s flashy monogram print which I personally can’t stand. The French design house has so many beautiful, classic and elegant bags to offer (e.g. the SC bag), however, I feel like 80% of their customers choose to tote around a logo-plastered tasteless piece. I’ve always loved the shape of the iconic Alma bag for example, but for a long time didn’t even know that it also comes in non-monogrammed versions because anything LV I spotted on the streets had also always the monogram print on it. But as much as I love this lovely citron yellow LV Alma top handle bag with its smooth epi leather and the polished silver-colored hardware, $1.840 is simply not my kind of bag buying budget.
