New In | Valentino Look-a-Likes

Valentino Dupes | Look for Less | kyssmystyle.com

Back in December 2013, I featured a look-a-like for the Valentino Rockstud Sandals in a blog post. Almost two years later,  I finally bought a pair.

I recently visited one of my best friends in Minnesota along with another one of my best friends. On the first full day of our trip, we hit up one of the newer outlet malls in the area. Honestly, I don’t like shopping for long periods of time; I’m an online shopper. I was mentally done after outlet mall, but afterwards we went to the Mall of America.

I was patiently waiting on my friend in Charlotte Russe, when my eye caught the Valentino Rockstud Ballerina Flat. (I always spend more money when I shop with people.) I’d been thinking about purchasing the flats for quite some time, but the price tag made me second guess myself. I spent a few minutes trying on the shoe and wondering if these flats deserve $30 dollars.

However, Charlotte Russe was having a buy one get one for $15 sale on shoes. I tried on a pair of black mules which I thought were very chic. They didn’t have my size, so I tried on the look-a-likes for the Rockstud Sandals. My friend told me, “Girl, they look nice,” and that was all I needed to hear. I tell ya. Nothing like a little peer pressure.

I didn’t want to spend $30 on the flats, but spending about $45 on two pairs of shoes seemed more within my budget at the time.

Another dupe I purchased was for the Valentino 1973 Rainbow Vavavoom Shoulder Bag. I featured this bag in a Real Vs. Steal post a few weeks ago. I love the different of the bag and I’m going to have so much fun styling it.

Kloset Kysses | Nude Heels

Real Vs. Steal | Jimmy Choo Anouk Look-a-Likes | kyssmystyle.com

I’m in love.

I’ve always thought that a nude pair of shoes is a closet essential, but I’ve never been one to appreciate the color nude. However, I recently purchased these shoes from gojane.com and they’re fast becoming one of my favorite pair of shoes. They’ve even inspired me to get my nails painted a similar color. 

What I love most about these shoes is how sleek they look. They resemble the popular designer pumps, such as the Jimmy Choo Anouk, and the Christian Louboutin Pigalle, and So Kate. It’s hard to find shoes like these under $50. Either the heel is too low, the arch is not high enough, or the vamp comes up too high.  Hence, as your stylist, I highly recommend you purchase these shoes in every damn color. These are a steal.

I would’ve gotten the black as well, but I already have a pair of black pumps. I plan on purchasing the coral, and the hot pink. Gojane.com has restocked these shoes at least three times now, which means they are a hot seller. If you want them, don’t hesitate.

Real Vs Steal | Aldo Ralevia Sandal Look a Like

posted on: June 6, 2015

Real Vs Steal | Aldo Ralevia Sandal | kyssmystyle.com

Come through savings!

Last year, I wrote a blog post which featured the Aldo Ralevia heels. I loved the shoes so much that I purchased them in gold. They are my favorite gold heels and I wear them all the time with my rose gold clutch, as you can see in the last photo.

They’re just about sold out now in all colors except for the color bone on heels.com for $80. However, your girl found a look-a-like for less than half the price on urbanog.com.

There are three main differences between the Aldo shoes, which you can see in the photos below and the look-a-likes:

  • The Aldo shoes are more rose gold than gold, like the look-a-likes are,
  • The Aldo shoes feature a 5 inch heel, whereas the look-a-likes feature a 4.25 inch heel, and
  • The Aldo shoes appear to be made of a more expensive material than that of the look-a-likes.

Other than that, as far as dupes go, these are beautiful, and if I didn’t have the Aldos, I would have bought these in a second.

The Perfect Gift for Mother’s Day | Anne Klein Bangle Bracelet Set

posted on: May 2, 2015

Anne Klein Interchangeable Gold-Tone Bangle Bracelets | kyssmystyle.com

Whoever said money can’t buy happiness is a liar. Sometimes it can. I find happiness in things of beauty, whether it be a ponsietta tree, a painting of an old house on the ocean, a Beyonce performance, or a beautiful Anne Klein bracelet set.

I was on Amazon.com wasting time searching for a product, when I saw an Anne Klein ad that caught my attention. Many a time I’ve seen a piece of jewelry that I love, but none in recent times like this bracelet set. There’s just something about it that sang my name.

I was considering buying a Michael Kors set, but so many people have Michael Kors jewelry and bags. Even my high school students have them. I can’t be rockin’ the same swag as them. #neaux

These bangle bracelets are perfect gift for the stylish mom this Mother’s Day. They feature four interchangeable gold-tone mixed metal bracelets, one being a three-hand watch displaying the Anne Klein logo, one having genuine Swarovski crystals, and another having black enamel. It retails for $150 and can be purchased from a variety of retailers in goldrose gold, and black. The widget below shows a few other styles that you can choose from.

Nordstrom is having a 25% off sale, so you can get it for $112.
