The Look For Less: Hot Heels

They stay that imitation is the best form of flattery. Top designers might not be thrilled to know that you can get their looks for less. But when you can find quality look-alikes for a fraction of the designer price, it’s undeniably awesome.

Enter Jessica Simpson.

Christian Louboutin’s “Staratata” heels cost about $995, which as we all know would be over a thousand dollars with tax. They’re undeniably beautiful! But if you want to drop a digit from the price, try Jessica Simpson’s “Evangela” heels, $98. This imitation has been all over the blogosphere lately, so I kept looking, and found more examples of style steals.

Report Signature makes a beautiful stripy black heel called the Williston. It’s priced at $225, which is a far cry better than the Louboutin prices. But if you’re looking for a better bargain,¬†Jessica Simpson makes a similar version, called the “Malika,” for the same lower price of $98.

Pink and black are beautiful together, so it’s no wonder that multiple upscale brands are combining them in ballet flats. The Marc by Marc Jacobs Soft Ballerina Flats retail for $195, which is a lot of money for a slip-on shoe. But you can get a near-identical look with the Jessica Simpson Madisen for just $69.

Morale of the story: Jessica Simpson rocks! ¬†Also, it’s nice to know that anyone can get a high-end look without a huge budget.

How do you save money on shoes? Are there any other “second best” brands that you rely on? Share in the comments!
