Copycat designers make me sad...especially cheaply made copies. When a sale seems too far away or an item too fad-ish, I'll give you a free pass to buy the design snatchers' style. Case & Point: Chloe vs. Steve Madden
This celeb-spotted Chloe Studded "Susan" Boot can be yours for $1,345.
Here comes our saving-budget-grace. Steve Madden's incredibly similar "Madhouse" Bootie retails for $149. And while we don't condone copy-cats, we would like to give props for re-creating the boot in leather. (unlike many other design thiefs who opt for man-made sweaty feet materials ;)
