Valentino Patent Leather Rockstud Slingback Pumps

 

I am seriously is LOVE with Valentino’s Patent Leather Rockstud Slingback Pumps right now but honestly my budget would be blown on these $895 shoes …and I LOVE to shop on the weekends so I needed an affordable look-a-like! I found an awesome copy from ShoeDazzle for $39.50

Take a look & tell me if you too would buy the look-a-like by ShoeDazzle?!?!  The blush is a better copy in my opinion but all are cute!.

Alexander McQueen Navy Sailor Skirt

 

I must admit I adore Kate Middleton/Windsor AKA The Duchess of Cambridge and when I walk into my closet I like to know I have some inspirational pieces just like Kate! But Glam Girl has a mortgage and a shopping obession therefore I just can’t throw hundreds and/or thousands of dollars on just one skirt.

Being an American girl I really love the nautical look , in fact I’m wearing a red/white&blue stripped Lands End dress as I type :)  

Kate wore an Alexander McQueen salior inspired navy pencil skirt on August 19, 2011 and it is so cute but I found one for less, even though it took me almost a year to find a great copy!

Diane von Furstenberg Zia Suede Criss-Cross Slingback Platform

Every GossipandGlam.com reader by now must know this Glam Girl LOVES shoes!!  It is half an illness at this point hehehe but you know what I don’t care and I hope to have a daughter one day to pass down all my goodies!!

I love Diane von Fursteinberg and her Zai Suede Criss-Cross Slingback Platform Sandals are AMAZING but for $280 at Saks I have to really think ….how many times will I bust out these blue heels? Maybe to a wedding or two and maybe a brial & baby shower but for less than $80 these ZARA Crossover Heels $79.90 featured on GossipandGlam.com “My Favorite Shoes: ZARA” on May 8,2012 .

My wedding shoes were cobalt blue open-toe heels with a ruffle detail … I loved those & you bet I would have worn these fun heels too!

QUILTED PUMPS

 

I really love how these simple quilted pumps by Brian Atwood make such a style-statement… “I’m Classy but Love A Little Drama”.

I must have these pump … really how can you not? They are so appropriate for work, not just another boring basic black pump, but still conservative enough… and yet put on your perfect LBD on the weekends they are just as stylish!

CLICK HERE: MANIAC PATENT HIGH-HEEL PLATFORM BASIC PUMP, Brian Atwood $584

At just under $600 it might be a deal-breaker for some but don’t fret my dear… I found you a pair for under $100.

 CLICK HERE: Paris Hilton “Coco” Quilted Pumps, $94.99

Can’t spare even $100 this month? No worries… Kim Kardashian & Shoe Dazzle have you covered for under $40

CLICK HERE: Collins Quilted Pump, Shoe Dazzle $39.95

Who can say no to $40 shoes that look like they cost hundreds? Not Me!!!

 L.K. Bennett Sledge Shoe

It seems as though this weeks posts are dedicated to the one & only Duchess of Cambridge… I guess I like her style.

Kate is famous for wearing, among other royals, LK Bennett’s Sledge Shoe in light taupe which runs you about $300

CLICK HERE: LK Bennett Sledge Shoe, $289

Now I believe every girl should have a nude patent pump in this closet … it is classic and chic, but $300 is not in every fashionista’s budget. I found a great look a like for under $100.

CLICK HERE: Zella Pump, Vince Camuto, $98

This shoe is a classic style…. you will have it forever, will always be in style, works for day & night… you can’t go wrong!

Platform Couture Bow Patent Pump

Valentino Platform Couture Bow Patent Pump

 

I am certainly not a girl who can resist Valentino’s obsession with bows. Their purses are beautifully & the heels are glamorous. As wedding season soon will be upon us I think we all know it is necessary to have in your closet that perfect show to go with your well thought out wedding guest outfit. Now we all know you take your shoes off once you hit the dance floor but you need that striking shoe for when you walk down the aisle… as a guest of course.

I know the right shoe is just as important as the right dress and for this lady there can be no other classic formal shoe than Valentino’s “Platform Couture Bow Patent Pump” which comes in various colors of red/black/nude lace/black lace/gold metallic color/ bronze pearl and will cost you $745…it is like filling up your oil tank …and that heats your house for a few months!

Sometimes a girl has to make some sacrifices …but not on style, just the maker. I found a great look-a-like that won’t even make a dent in your wallet at under $100 but comes with all the glam by Paris Hilton. Yes, Paris Hilton has a shoe collection but I must admit from a girl who owns a pair of her heels, I get compliments every time I wear them & while they are sky high they are VERY comfortable.  Paris’s shoes come with hot pink soles and I really have to admit her “Señorita” it is hard to tell the real from the fake apart! Just imagine how many other pairs of shoes you could buy with that savings… or maybe use it to fill up your oil tank for heat & still wear your fancy shoes to all those weddings & showers this spring & summer!

See you barefoot on the dance floor! :)

Pearl Platform Pumps

 While recently browsing the Neiman Marcus website in search of new shoes to lust after I came across the “Pearl-Platform Satin Pump” by Nicholas Kirkwood with a 5″ covered heel . These heels are gorgeous & would add a touch of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” glamour to any outfit!  Can’t you just imagine her in that famous little black dress, sparkly tiara, endless pearl necklaces and these shoes?!?!

 

CLICK HERE: Nicholas Kirkwood Pearl Platform Pumps, Neiman Marcus $995

 

If you can’t part with a grand this month to splurge on these fabulous stilettos here is a great alternative at a substantially lower price-point!

 “Pearla0” by Red Kiss is selling on E-Bay & various online retailers like Shiekh Shoes for about $30 to $60. The red and nude look very close to the Kirkwood heels while the black has silver-toned pearl detail.

 

CLICK HERE: Pearla0 by Red Kiss, Nude $29.99

CLICK HERE: Pearla0 by Red Kiss, Red $29.99

 CLICK HERE: Pearla0 by Red Kiss, Black $29.99

 

I believe every girl can wear any shoe, and how can a pair of pearl platform pumps not be part of your shoe collection? Sure I want to have the original pair of pumps for $1,000 but for under $100 I can have a pair in all 3 colors…. I’ll be expecting a very large box in the mail very soon & my collection will be one step closer to closet-heaven!

We all know the greatest fashion houses create some of the best shoe designs but those designer duds can cost a pretty penny. While I sometimes splurge on the real thing, my budget cannot cover my shoe fetish at a thousand dollars a pop.  I love walking through Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus just as much as I love to browse through the racks at Target and Ann Taylor. I believe a girl should always invest in good staple items such as the sexy black stiletto, a polished nude wedge, the perfect ballet flat, a basic black pump, a chic pair of boots and glamorous summer sandals…. but let’s be honest, I love shoes too much to only own a few pairs in the closet, even if they are all high-end designers. This brings me to the “Couture to Copy” section of my blog where I will show you a fabulous designer shoe & if it isn’t in your budget but a must-have of the season where you can find it for less but still just as stunning.
