Christian Louboutin Spiked Heels

The shoes loved by celebs, these Louboutin heels have been worn by Kim Kardashian and Leighton Meester. These shoes are bold and edge yet at the same time they manage to be chic and elegant. Even with the bold detailing of these heels they are still extremely wearable. But at a cost of €1150 these shoes suddenly become less appealing. But if your ready to drop that amoun click on the picture below and it will take you right to the website to buy them.

 

Below is a pair a shoes from Steve Madden called 'Andie', they are on sale at the moment for €37. Shoes like these with a platform and sky-high heel will do wonders for your legs. It's mind boggling that their can be such a price difference between shoes with such similarities. The only major difference is that the Steve Madden heels are peep-toe but for such a major price difference I think we can get over that.

Alexander McQueen Skull Scarf

This scarf has been seen on nearly every celeb and fashionista since its creation in 2009. These scarves  have become iconic and are the perfect item to add drama and style to any outfit. This skull scarf truly is an investment piece and they are a lot more versatile than you think. These scarfs can not only be worn as scarfs but also as hair bands and belts. This Alexander McQueen scarf costs €205 and is available from net-a-porter or Alexander McQueen direct.



There are dozens of copy's out there, but it is hard to find a good copy as many of them are obvious. The original scarf is 100% silk and is very fragile. The below scarf is a copy that I found at Penny's/Primark, it is a 100% polyester but I think you can compromise with the massive price difference as this scarf costs €4. Note : Thank you to my friend Patriz for holding up the scarf while I took the picture.

Valentino Studded Sandals


These shoes are totally edgy yet girly at the same time with their pale pink background. They are the perfect shoe to give a floaty pink dress an edgy twist but also to give a black leather dress a girly edge. You may look at them and think they are totally unwearable when in fact they are incredibly versatile. Just think about it because of there pale colour they can be worn with almost any colour. These Valentino sandals cost €795. The craftsmanship is beautiful and as much I love them sadly they don't quite come in within my budget.



Even thought the studding is slightly different, these shoes are almost identical to the Valentino ones.The sandal are so alike that it is hard to believe the hefty price difference. Because of the neutral tones, they are very wearable. After all, versatility is key, and these sandals embody that statement perfectly. Not to mention, they are available in both black and pale pink leather. These Steve Madden 'Hunnie' sandals cost €85. If you click on the picture below it will bring you to the Steve Madden Website.

Copy-Kate Lk Bennett Sledge Shoe

The Lk Bennett Sledge has become the Duchess of Cambridge's signature shoe, with her wearing them to the majority of her public engagements over the past two years. Katherine cleverly teams these nude shoes with skin coloured tights to elongate her legs. Another benefit to nude shoes is that they are versatile and can be worn with almost anything. The Lk Bennett sledge costs €240, Lk Bennett are considered a high street brand but this price is more up the designer end.



There are countless cheaper alternatives on the high street and these are just one. The shoes are from Dorothy Perkins and cost €31.




After the Sledge became such a success, LK  Bennett brought out a Sledge 2: identical, but in a patent leather rather than a high-shine leather. More recently the Duchess has been seen wearing the patent version, which means she definitely has a pair and a spare !!!
