Aquazzura Belgravia Lace-Up Pumps, $725 v. Sam Edelman Zavier Pumps, $99 (was $140)
This one’s a no brainer. I actually scored the Sam Edelman version on sale–they’re insanely comfortable and virtually identical to the Aquazzuras. Love them!
Nothing can really beat the cool factor of this crystal embellished dress from Stella McCartney’s Resort ’14 collection–but at $2,995 (gasp), it’s not exactly a purchase for the masses. TopShop’s embroidered satin shift bears a close resemblance at a far more palatable price. I love me some Stella but I’ll take the $130 version, please!
A trusty drop-waist frock is a mainstay to add to your LBD arsenal. Pair it with a white boyfriend blazer and point toe flats (like these or these) for your 9 to 5. Add a statement necklace and heels for a night out.
P.S.: Banana is offering 50% off with code REVEAL50 until 10/22!
Cartier’sTank watch is truly timeless–no pun intended. But alas, the real thing requires a lot of spare pennies (two million three hundred and fifty thousand to be exact). This imposter by Juicy is a pretty decent stand in!
Jenni Kayne’s coveted d’Orsay flats are the bomb but the price tag…um…not so much. Fortunately, Chinese Laundry now makes an imposter that looks just like the real thing for only (drum roll) $59.00. I’ll take these two…err…three, thank you!
Who isn’t obsessed with Valentino’s rock stud collection (hello gorgeous T-strap version here and here). Fortunately, as with most of the fashion set’s MVPs, knock offs have followed–and they’re pretty close comparables, right? Score!
I’ve been obsessed with Rag & Bone’s Newbury booties forever–the styling is amazing and the sturdy heel makes them surprisingly easy to walk in despite the height, a crucial deciding factor for any shoe purchase. However, the $495 price tag isn’t easy to swallow no matter how cute they are. But just the other day, I stumbled across these look-a-likes by Vince Camuto for less than (gulp) one-third the cost.
While I haven’t tried them on (yet), they certainly give you the style of the Newbury at a fraction of the cost. How cute would they look paired with ankle length skinnies and a blazer like Rosie Huntington Whitley below?
Or with leather leggings, shorts, skirts or a dress and trench like model Jaquelyn Jablonski (love that PS1 bag too).
Oh the possibilities….
