Steal the Real - Jimmy Choo Pumps

piperLimeSandalThumb

Last week we posted a Jimmy Choo ad announcing the brand’s collaboration with fashion retail giant H&M. We we so excited when we stumbled upon the Jimmy Choo steal at AmiClubWear.com for only $9.99 and they are stunning. The pumps are crocodile embossed faux patent leather in a contemporary dress style with a round open toe. The patent strap wraps over the midsole and a wide cutout cuffed ankle strap with a full rear zipper creates a striking finish. These pumps are also available in brown and must be worn with a perfect summer-time pedicure.

Inspired By - Samantha Pleet & Mandate Of Heaven

Our friend @Tiaraisawonder tweeted, “@TheLooksForLess Help!!! Im in need of a katy perry inspired romper…something like mandate of heaven designs or samantha pleet. Ne ideas!?”

The images in the inspiration above were found at Mandate of Heaven. Their designs are so dreamy, quirky, and vintage. Additionally, our looks were not only “inspired by” Samantha Pleet, thanks to Urban Outfitters we were lucky enough to include some of her actual pieces. UO has partnered with some amazing independent designers to create an ongoing series of limited-edition collections available only at Urban Outfitters, including Rapscallion by New York designer Samantha Pleet.

In both, the Mandate of Heaven and Samantha Pleet collections, you will find a lot of high collar necklines and plunging tanks, high waisted skirts and short shorts. Their primary color schemes includes taupe and navy dresses as well as black and white colorblock rompers. I think that the black romper dress (#7) is the best blend of Samantha Pleet, Mandate of Heaven, and Katy Perry inspired style.

Celebrate with eye popping cuteness in the Little Sparkler Dress in Green! This festive cutie features a navy and oatmeal striped tank top with a scoop neckline and a green stitch outline. Dress has a darling green skirt gathered along a 1″ wide elasticized waistband and a detachable cloth belt that ties in front with a classic bow.

Deal of the Week - Pierre Dumas Kelly-1 from PiperLime.com This dress would look so perfect with our Deal of the Week from last week, the PiperLime.com Pierre Dumas Kelly-1 for $39.99.

Steal the Real - The Real : Yves saint Laurent $685, The Steal : Promiscuous Cherish $61.40

I saved pics of the steal and the real and kept forgetting which was which. Hope I have them labeled properly above because they are shockingly similar. As with all Steal the Reals, the price is shockingly drastic. I love the peep toe and platform on these pumps and the criss-cross ankle strap would look great with skinny jeans or a skirt.

The Real may be found at YSL.com for $685. The very comparable Promiscuous Cherish may be found at Zappos.com for $61.40. That’s a difference of $624. All sizes are currently available!

The Real - Taryn Rose Bion Ballet Flats $425 : The Steal - Steve Madden KOBRAA in Bold Paris $49.95

It’s all about the metallics right now. I love these gold ballet flats, but there is no way I would pay $425 for the original. Rachel Zoe, my favorite fashionista, said that mixing metals is super hot for Summer! She suggests mixing gold and silver and to break it up with a bit of rose gold.

The Steve Madden ballet flats would go great with jeans or a dress. The Real can be found at Zappos.com for $425!! The Steal is on sale for $49 at SteveMadden.com. That is a difference of $376!!

The Real - Balmain Crystal Studded Sandals $2,085 : The Steal - Steve Madden $129

WOW, this is the mother of all “Steal The Real” deals. Which is the real and which is the steal? The difference in style is so subtle, yet the difference in price is crazy drastic. I’ll definitely take the steal vs. a few mortagage payments for the designer original. I’m not kidding… read on!

The Real is a Balmain Studded Crystal Sandal, as seen on Rihanna, and it may be found at LuisAviaroma.com for €1475.00… that’s $2,085 US dollars my friends!!! The Steal is the Steve Madden BRIGGHT BLACK MULTI at a price of $129. That is a difference of $1996!!!! We can always count on Steve to come through for us. Us recessionistas need amazing heels too. Don’t be fooled by the bling on these heels. Because they are rockin the studs, these can be dressed up or down if you go simple with the rest of your outfit and accessories.

These heels are on pre-order. You gotta get ‘em while they’re hot!!
