Look For Less Fashion : Inspired or Copyright infringement

I have struggled with putting up look for less posts for so long now because i couldn’t really make up my mind what side of the fence i belonged to. But for the sake of my shoe lovers who have been requesting for less priced options of the luxury brands, i’d drop my opinion right here. I have a problem with copies of shoes like the Valentino Rock Studs pumps or the Aquazzura wild thing sandals. These are trademark designs of a brand. You see a pair of rockstuds from afar and can immediately identify them. I find it quite appalling to see an exact copy in cheaper material all in the name of look for less.  For shoes with details like the Sophia Websters Angel Wings sandals, i will NOT do a copy design. But that is just my opinion. On the other hand, there’s the Stuart Weitzman nudist sandal, those are simple basic sandals with no detail. A couple of other luxury brands have similar looking sandals and that’s fine. Having a less priced option of those is very welcome and i don’t think anyone will raise an eyebrow. I’d leave you with a few Look For Less and now that i have aired my views, there will be subsequent posts on them. Enjoy!!! GIANVITTO ROSSI VS TOPSHOP ISABEL MARANT VS TOPSHOP VALENTINO VS TOPSHOP AQUAZZURA VS VINCE CAMUTO   JIMMY CHOO VS JEFFERY CAMPBELL Hit or miss??, which of these will you splurge on? and which would you settle for less?? Peace, love and inspired copies? Xoxo,...

Denim Fever!!! Part 2

In the part 1 of this post, I brought you some of the denim collection from luxury brands as seen on Neiman Marcus, denim is going to be in and a lot too, going into the year. So in this part, I’d be sharing some of my favorite finds from other not so throat slicing brands going for about $50<40pounds> and below (about N 20,000) but of very good and durable quality. Still not convinced to get on the denim train??? You can get these pairs by contacting the SoleDivas sales team.   (PhotoCredit: Brand Sites)          ...

Splurge VS Steal – Get The Look For Less

Except your bank account is very obese from hardwork smart work and constantly so, or you are married to an Arabian Sheikh to who money really ain’t a thang, luxury shoe shopping sets you back a few hundreds of dollars with most pairs retailing between $600 – $2000 and higher. Even at the best discounts, most of them are still at cut throat prices. For the not so buoyant or those who can’t splurge at random, this post is all about splurge vs steal. Below are some luxury items with similar looking designs by high street designers at amazing prices. They are not necessarily imitations but most times an inspiration by the luxury designer. 1. Giuseppe Zanotti VS Tory Burch: You can hardly tell the difference between these Zanotti sandals and the Tory Burch at first glance. Both amazing designers but one is a splurge at $850 and the other a fair deal at $265 both via Neiman Marcus.       2. Manolo Blahnik VS Sarah Jessica Parker: This is a love story between the lead actor in the popular series Sex And The City and the designer who designed most of the shoes she wore while the series lasted. Her designs were obviously inspired by Manolo Blahnik and have now become a steal in relation to his luxury brand. Either way, i’d have any of them as they are both equally gorgeous with the evergreen Manolo Hangisi Pumps($965) been more popular.         3.Salvatore Ferragamo VS Aldo: This is an absolute steal that will save you enough cash to buy various colors of these Aldo Jelly flats which by the way look...
