Still Pricy, but SO Gorgeous!

If you’re like me, you love designer shoes but hate designer prices. Doing your homework by scouring the internet for bargains can really pay off. Check out a few of these websites for great deals. Deals are passed on to consumers through overstocks, end of the season deals and discontinued items. These are not replicas. They’re the real deal. So get shopping and then hit the town in your sleek, sexy new footwear!

Here are a few of the selections I really like. Keep in mind that over time, most items are no longer available, but if you find something you like, you can look for shoes with similar cuts, colors and styles on any number of websites. As many designers are European, take note that their prices are often listed in pounds or euros. Be sure to do your conversions before purchase to make sure you are not paying much more than you planned. There are some to fit your lifestyle, whether casual, professional or elegant. Enjoy!

Jimmy Choo's Tamar ($615 on sale for $307.50)

A beautiful twist on the Mary Jane, these Jimmy Choo’s featuring a stunning champagne colored, glittery fabric. Your legs will look fabulous on the four-inch heels. Perfect for weddings, parties and holidays. For me, the shoe evokes a sense of youthfulness with a style reminiscent of those worn by flappers in the roaring 20s. Imagine this paired with an elegant fringed dress, cut just above the knee and a long set of pearls. This is one hot shoe!

Manolo Blahnik’s Fanni ($845 on sale for $338)

This gorgeous 3.5 inch heeled shoe is fashioned of calf-leather and features thick black stitched trim and aggressive silver studded and buckled details. This is one high heel that works not only with slimming skirts and jackets, but also with your favorite jeans. Whether you're boss in the boardroom or a bad-ass at the club, these shoes are sure give the woman lucky enough to own them an edgy appeal.

Manolo Blahnik Chaantasa Ankle Band Leather Pump ($775)

Available at Neiman Marcus, these exquisite pumps are another score for designer Manolo Blahnik. These are shoes that aspire to love you back as they cradle your ankle in style. Their delicate yet aggressive design is perfect for the bold, confident woman that is not afraid to also be vulnerable and pampered when it suits her. Whether worn with your favorite jeans or paired with a sleek, slimming pencil skirt, you'll be the envy of every woman and the desire of every man in these shoes.

Givenchy’s Luciano Padovan ($470 on sale for $188)

If heels are not your style, check out these chic, multicolored flats. The toe is fashioned from patent black leather and the red, tan and greens create a uniquely, urban chic appeal. Features a gold buckle and the small heel is only ¾ “! These shoes show the world that you're a fun and flirty gal who's not afraid to experiment with color. Taller women can get away with pairing these flats with a short skirt while everyone can agree they look great with your favorite casual pants or jeans.

Christian Louboutin Nude Crystal Alta Rita Diams 100’ Slingbacks ($1425 on sale for $1140)

This is one serious expensive shoe. Featuring detailed nude mesh and crystals, it is the perfect evening shoe for a very elegant night on the town. The lining is made for comfort with light padding to absorb your footfall and the heels tower a full four inches and are covered in metallic leather. Louboutin can make any foot and leg shapely and beautiful, but these crystal gems will not only increase your sex appeal, they'll also assure you're the classiest lady in the room.

Yves Saint Laurent Black Suede Chelsea 105 Tassel Boots ($1250 on sale for $1000)

This is a smokin’ hot boot that provides a sexy edginess to the lucky owner. You’ll tower over your peers on a ½ inch platform and 4.75 inch heels! The boots are crafted from smooth black suede and are slip on, so there are no zippers to hassle with. It is 16” tall and 15.5 inches around the widest part of your calf. Perfect for an evening out at the club or the corner bar, the proud owner of these boots is sure to be noticed by anyone looking for a confident, mature woman that knows how to strut her stuff and can hold her own in the world of fashion.

Prada Tricolor Suede d'Orsay Pumps

The Devil may wear Prada, but he won't look as good as you, when you're wearing these classic pumps! These elegantly cut, richly colored pumps are another Prada classic and are perfect weather you’re a high powered professional woman or a cougar on the prowl. The are crafted in the perfect shade of burgundy with a pointed toe and delicate leather ankle strap. The thin heel is perfect for giving your legs an elongated look, offering you the commanding presence you deserve.

Christian Louboutin Petite Fee 100mm Boots ($1365)

You may not be planning to attend an Oscar's after party, but if you were, you'd have the perfect footwear in these fun, flirty shoes! Granted, they are way more than the average woman would even dream of paying, but they are drop-dead sexy and loads of fun. The satin ribbon which ties behind the upper ankle adds a touch of femininity. These shoes are perfect when worn with skirts or crop pants. It's the only way to show off the spectacular, stunning laces. If you pick up a pair, you may just have to crash an after party, or host one of your own!

      There are many online sites for replica shoes at a fraction of the price. Thanks for sharing.

      I know we all love designer fashion shoes. If you don't want to pay full price, try searching online for deals or drop into a consignment shop!
