Giuseppe Zanotti has a line that he sale specifically at DSW. I was shopping as usually and came across these fabulous booties. I love booties and I love Giuseppe Zanotti so for me they are a no brainer, however even at DSW the price of these Giuseppe Zanotti can leave your wallet hurting. At Ippolitan.com they have a bootie comparable to the Giuseppe Zanotti for a lower price.

This shoe is the most popular Valentino shoe in years. The Valentino Rock Stud Pump is made in different heel heights and colors. This shoe is the perfect mix of girly and rock, and can be worn with anything because it is a perfect mixture. If your heart loves this beautiful shoe as much as I do but your budget does not Hauteandrebellious.com has the Valentine Studded Strap Pump. The only difference between the two is the Valentine studded Strap Pump heel is enclosed. Other than that both shoes offer a similar look.

Christian Louboutin vs Jessica Simpson

I remember the first time I saw this fabulous shoe, it was love at first sight. What I like the most about the Christian Louboutin Zoulou is the versatility; it can be easily dressed up or down. I have seen this shoe worn with cargo pants, jeans, and it looks stunning with dresses too. The only thing I would change if I could about Christian Louboutin Zoulou is the extra large platform. For me the platform is not practical for everyday wear, which means if I can not wear it when ever I want I would not get my money’s worth. Jessica Simpson solved the platform problem with her equally fabulous Segel tube strap sandal. Christian Louboutin Zoulou was sold at saksfifthavenue.com and ChristianLouboutin.com. Christian Louboutin now has a similar design called Gortika that has no platform at all and it also has a slightly larger toe opening. I prefer at least some of a platform, so the Jessica Simpson Segel would still be my first choice.

Last year, Charlotte Olympia came out with the shoe Girls on Film. There were different variations and colors made of the shoe, but they are all equally stunning.  The last place that I could find that sold the shoe was at net-a-porter.com.  In a mad search, I came across a very similar shoe by Paper Fox called Filme that is now being sold at Shoe Dazzle.

Looking at Giuseppe Zanotti pre-fall collection I came a cross these metallic mules. I am normally not into mules because I have a hard time keeping them on my feet. However, this design is different with the two straps. Even with the thicker second strap this shoe is so sleek and sexy. I can see this shoes being worn with just about anything. Steve Madden has made a similar mule that is just as cute but for a cheaper price.

Christian Louboutin vs. Bebe

Christian Louboutin Highness vs Bebe Katrice

I am always happy to find a good pump. I typically look for a unquie shape but still basic enough to be pair with multiple outfits. When I first saw the Christian Louboutin Highness pump I was in love. The front of this Christian Louboutin is a lot more round then what you would normally see on a peep toe pump and it has a super high heel. Christian Louboutin is a luxury brand so his designs can be a bit pricey. However, if you love this round peep toe design as much as I do Bebe’s Katrice Peep Toe Platform is comparable to Christian Louboutin’s Highness pump for a lower price.

Giuseppe Zanotti has some of the cutest booties I have ever seen. This lace up peep toe bootie is one of my favorites because of the gold metallic strap. The gold metallic strap really gives it an edgy look. Giuseppe Zanotti is known for his creative designs but they cost a pretty penny. Steven Madden has just come out with an alternative if you love these Giuseppe Zanotti lace up booties but don’t like the price

Sergio Rossi has a beautiful peep toe bootie perfect for the spring and summer. It is currently available in cream, red, turquoise, and black and I love all of them. However for all my fashionistas on a budget, Vince Camuto has a bootie comparable to Sergio Rossi’s for a lower price.
