Real Vs Steal | Aquazzura Lace-Up Leather Sandals Look-a-Like

posted on: January 25, 2014

Aquazzura-Amazon-Lace-Up-Leather-Sandals

The Aquazzura Amazon Lace-Up Leather Sandals (netaporter.com, saksfifthavenue.com, neimanmarcus.com)  have been worn by celebrities such as Solange Knowles, and Kylie Jenner.

They feature a 4 inch heel, multi-strap lace-up front, an open round toe, and a zip fastening along the back.

I found a similar pair, the Common-14 Strappy Open Toe Heel, on urbanog.com for $33.90. It’s available in black, taupe, white and sea green.

The look-a-like also features a multi-strap lace-up front, an open round toe and and back zipper closure. The only major differences are that the look-a-likes are .45″ higher and of course are made of synthetic material. (See photo below).

Gojane.com also has a look-a-like, the Python Dream Corset Heels, for $30.80. The straps on these shoes are shorter that those on the Aquazurra’s, and the heel goes inward toward the sole of the shoe.

They’re available in natural, black, fuchsia, and turquoise. Can you say win?

New Shoes | Zara Leopard Lace Up Sandals Look-a-Like

Zara Leopard Lace Up Sandal Look-a-Like

It’s important for you to know that leopard print is my favorite colour. (Yes, leopard print is a colour.)

If God took the form of shoe, I feel like this is what she would look like. I bought this shoe a month ago from gojane.com and had it sent to my girlfriend who lives in MN (because I live in the Bahamas and didn’t want to pay the customs/shipping fees). It’s finally made it home to my closet and I call her Verohnica (with an h).

I first saw a shoe similar to this pair on gojane.com and as soon as I saw it, I damn near threw it in my shopping cart. My heart cracked in two when I got an email stating that the shoe was out of stock and they were sorry for any inconvenience caused. *side eye*

However, a few weeks later, they stocked these beauties and I was partly grateful I didn’t get those ones because these look better. I like this particular leopard print more (yes, it does make a difference) and the heel is higher.

These shoes are an exact dupe for the Zara lace up sandals, which are very popular among fashion bloggers #fashionbloggerslovezara

They sold out a long time ago, but if you follow my “What’s in My Closet” board on Pinterest, you can see things I buy online as I purchase them.

Shoe Spotlight | Steve Madden Marlenee Sandal

posted on: January 13, 2014

Steve Madden Marlenee Sandal

I’ve had my eye on the Steve Madden Marlenee sandal for a while now. (I always have my eye on some shoe.)

The sandal features leather upper material, man made sole and lining, as well as a 4.5 inch heel. It comes in a variety of colors and materials including mint patent, black, and fawn patent (as shown above), orange neon patent, red, and cognac (as shown below), and several floral prints as shown at the end of this post.

They can be purchased from stevemadden.com for $99.95 with the exception of the last floral print pattern (in the last photo), which can be found at lulus.com for $99.

Nordstrom also has the Marlenee sandal in black, and blush, cognac, pewter, floral (same one at lulus.com), and natural multi (gold, tan, and snake skin).

Macy’s also has them in cognac, and peter ($69.30), rhinestone (perfect for special occasions $116.99), black, and floral. Piperlime has them in black, cognac, fawn patent, and pewter for $100 and amazon.com has a few of the colors.

I featured this sandal a while back as a dupe for the Manolo Blahnik Chaos Cuff Sandal. Truth is, every designer/brand, that’s worth their name, has a pair of sandals in one of their collections that resembles this shoe.

The reason is because it’s one of the most versatile shoes you can have in your closet. It literally goes with everything. The only outfit I wouldn’t wear these with is a business suit. I would opt for a closed toe pump like the Jeffrey Campbell Darling pump because I think it goes better with the whole boss like mentality I adopt whenever I wear a suit. Sandals are more flirty.

But I digress. These shoes can be worn with pretty much any type of dress from cocktail, to bodycon. They also look bomb with skirts, especially pencil skirts (but what doesn’t look with a pencil skirt?), as well as shorts, and jeans.

If you’re looking at this shoe and thinking, “I can’t walk in those,” well there are many variations of this shoe that feature a thicker and/or shorter heel that’s easier to walk in. The Bamboo Senza 01 Black Single Strap High Heels ($31) from lulus.com has the same heel height, but it’s much thicker than the Maddens. They’re also available in chestnut.

Cheap Vs Cheaper | Zara Strappy High Heel Sandal Look-a-Like

Zara Strappy High Heel Sandal Look a Like

It appears that this is my first shoe look-a-like post of the year. *throws confetti*

If I had to choose a particular brand that’s most popular among fashion bloggers (especially with regards to shoes), it would be Zara.

The Zara High Heel Sandal ($89) was very popular among bloggers last year. It’s sold out, but I found a look-a-like on lulus.com for $36 called the Sonya 4 Strappy Peep Toe Heel. They’re available in black and taupe.

How you doin’? *Wendy Williams voice*.

The most notable differences between the Zaras and the pair from Lulu’s is the back of the Zara sandal has a deep inward curve toward the ankle. Other than that, the differences are minor.
