I know I already mentioned that Aquazzura is having quite the fashion moment with bloggers right now, but WOW!, I then went on to discover another one of their latest top sellers: Wild Thing, a delicate suede high heel sandal with intricate lace up tassels and a fringed vamp. Now I don’t know about you, but even though the shoe looks lovely on its own, I wasn’t too compelled at first. But then I started seeing all those gorgeous personal style bloggers donning their Wild Things on Instagram and all of a sudden I found myself completely obsessed with this shoe! I love how many of the bloggers used it to either add a pop of color or to compliment their already colorful outfit. I so wish I could lavishly spend $785 on a pair of shoes, but rent is not gonna pay by itself unfortunately.

Ivanka Trump “Hethal” Suede Fringe High Heel Sandals

Update (03/22/2017): Juicy details coming up with a new steal find! As you might know Aquazzura has filed a lawsuit againgst the Ivanka Trump brand last year for allegedly copying their highly popular “Wild Thing” design. As far as I am informed, the lawsuit hasn’t been settled yet, but I guess the folks at Ivanka Trump are either not particularly worried ooooor really pissed off at Aquazzura because Ivanka Trump released a new shoe design that looks A LOT like the “Hettie” sandal with only a few minor changes such as the metal hoop on the fringed vamp and the missing tassels on the laces which IV replaced with metal caps instead, which, coincidentally or not, are also heavily used by Aquazzura (e.g. on the “Christy” flats). Now THAT’s a bold move when you’re in the middle of a (possibly? probably!) multi-million dollar lawsuit! Really curious to see how that copycat feud is going to turn out. In the meantime, you can purchase these admittedly lovely shoes for a budget-friendly price of $90.99 (sale price!). Make sure to use promo code “LTDAYS” at checkout to get an extra 20% off regular and sale items at Lord & Taylor (offer valid through March 29th at 11:59 PM EST, some exclusions may apply). This would lower the price of these shoes down to less than $80.

Maiden Lane Fringed Ankle-Wrap Suede Sandals

Update (03/22/2017): To take some pressure off of Ivanka Trump though, she’s definitely not the only one copying Aquazzura (obviously, just look at this long list of “Wild Thing” dupes here). Maiden Lane decided to hop on the “Wild Thing” trend bandwagon as well and thus came up with an almost spot-on look-alike shoe. The only noticeable difference is the heel height which is significantly lower on the Maiden Lane version which I personally really like because it makes the shoe so much more w/bearable. I just wonder whether Maiden Lane decided to go with a lower heel because they didn’t want to anger Aquazzura too much and be the possible cause of yet another copycat lawsuit? We’ll probably never know. Anyway, these heels are available in red, taupe and black suede for $129. But hurry, some sizes are already out of stock!

Can we talk about this summer’s hottest footwear trend for a minute? Colorful, charm-embellished Pom Pom lace-up sandals. You’ve probably seen them all over Instagram already and now that summer is approaching, the trend is slowly emerging on the streets as well. It first started with Aquazzurals and Dolce & Gabbana I think; both houses came out with colorful Pom Pom shoes recently. Shortly after the “Penny Lane” lace-up gladiators by Elina Linardaki became a huge success and have started popping up on everyone’s fashion feed. And why wouldn’t they? Each pair is handmade in Greece and contrary to the likes of Aquazzura and Dolce & Gabbana, you don’t have to spend an arm or a leg to flaunt this summer’s hottest “It“-shoe.

Zonewetwo Pom Pom Lace-Up Flat Sandals

Update (06/21/2016): Discovered these super cute and budget-friendly Pom Pom lace-up sandals by Zonewetwo at Choies. They look so similar to the pricey Elina Linardaki Penny Lanes, but cost less than $30!

River Island Lace-Up Leather Pom Pom Sandals

Update (06/04/2016): Spotted these $70 real leather Pom Pom sandals at River Island which would make a great Elina Linardaki look for less alternative.

Chinese Laundry “Posh” Embellished Lace-Up Sandals

If spending $200 on the Pom Pom trend seems unreasonable to you and if you’re too lazy to DIY your own version, here’s a lovely and budget-friendly alternative by Chinese Laundry which will give you the same playful vacation look for $59.95. You better hurry though because these sandals are selling by the minute.

Steve Madden “Cailin” Embellished Lace-Up Flat Sandals

These embellished lace-up sandals by Steve Madden are another great, but more toned down alternative of the Pom Pom lace-up sandal. If you like the basic design concept of these, but really want those Pom Poms poppin’ on your sandals, consider adding a couple of craft store-bought Pom Pomsamazon (cost: less than $10).

Mabu by Maria BK Embellished Leather Sandals

Now these Pom Pom lace-up sandals by Mabu by Maria BK won’t give you any price advantage compared to the Elina Linardaki version, but they are just as beautiful and I wanted to include these in case the Penny Lane sandals sell out and a suitable quality alternative will be needed.

Schutz “Patricia” Embellished Lace-Up Flat Gladiator Sandals

Last but not least are these super cute and playful lace-up flat sandals by Schutz. They’re missing the dangling Pom Poms, but as I wrote above, you can easily add them yourself, so if you prefer the conceptual design of these not so steal-worthy $190 now: $152 Schutz shoes, consider opting for these instead.

Colorful Pom Pom sandals are all the rage this summer, but if you can’t be bothered with complicated and tedious lace-up gladiator styles which take forever to get laced just right, these embellished leather slides by Schutz are a great and just as fabulous alternative – they’re super easy to put on and off which thus makes them the perfect beach or pool shoes for your summer vacation. But if you don’t see yourself spending $160 on a pair of trendy leather slides, well, we just happened to come across an absolute spot-on Schutz “Estelen” look-alike by Steve Madden. The design of Madden’s “Gypsy” is pretty much identical, even the arrangement of the embellishments is almost the exact same! The only noticeable difference here is the $79 price tag on the Steve Maddens which makes them half as expensive as the pricey Schutz sandals. Which slide-on sandals do you prefer, Madden or Schutz? And would you rather splurge or save on this shoe trend? Let us know!

Splurge or Save? - Embellished Sandal Slides: Schutz "Estelen" or Steve Madden "Gypsy"?

Chances are you’re already pretty familiar with these double-strapped ribbon tie ballerina flats by Miu Miu because these ballerinas are the “It shoe” of the summer and the latest shoe trend to take over our fashion feeds. As you can see below some of our favorite bloggers and IGers have already been prancing the streets in those cute and quirky ballet flats channeling their inner prima ballerina. I must admit I haven’t been actively following Miu Miu’s collections for a while now, but these shoes made me fall in love with Miuccia Prada’s younger fashion line all over again. I just love how the belted straps toughen up the otherwise overly sweet ballerina design thus giving them an edgy and modern vibe while at the same time still maintaining a classic and feminine look. Also, how cool is the idea of wearing them with mismatched ribbon laces? Pure genius and so refreshingly new and creative! Naturally, we’ve gotten quite a few requests to find budget-friendly alternatives for these much sought after Miu Miu flats because a) these babies cost a whopping $620 now: $670 and b) the popular versions like the nude one for example are basically sold out everywhere anyway. Ergo: challenge accepted!

Steve Madden “Meow” Ribbon Tie Ballerina Flats

Last but not least are these lace-up flats by Steve Madden. They don’t have the buckled front straps like the real deal and thus are more of an “inspired by Miu Miu“-kind, but they do come with two sets of interchangeable ribbon laces, so the overall look is still very much Miu Miu without them being a blatant copy. Also how buttery soft does the blush leather look like here? Amazing for $35.95 (sale price!), no? Other available color options include black and silver metallic.
