Ask BB: Pour La Victoire 'Edie' Look for Less

I have been drooling over the Pour la Victoire "Edie" Dusty Peach patent wedges (above right), but not only are they out of reach budget-wise, they are apparently completely and utterly unavailable!! I like the J.Crew "Martina" patent wedge also (above left), in apricot mist...but they, too, are $228! I love the light pink/peach nude color of both these shoes, the patent finish and the 3-4 inch wedge heel. I feel like they could be the most versatile shoe around if I could get my hands on an affordable doppelgangor! If you would be up for helping I would beyond appreciate it! —Zina

Both of the shoes you lust after are actually budget-friendly styles inspired by the Jimmy Choo "Allen" wedge pump ($595) or the Christian Louboutin "Ron Ron" ($695) - but I know that's little consolation! Fortunately a few other brands have more affordable look-a-likes that might work for you.

My favorite look for less is the Franco Sarto "Impell" pump ($99.95) - it's a cool taupe leather wedge with a sleek almond toe and demure 3 1/4" heel.

If you don't mind a suede finish (which I agree with you is probably less versatile than the patent), then Ivanka Trump's "Linear" wedge pumps ($113) might fit the bill. Also available in purple or black.

Finally, if you're willing to forego the peach color for something in black, red, purple or faux snake, then you'll love the Cosmopolitan for JCP "Emily" wedge pump - it's only $37 and comes in lots of fall-perfect colors.

UPDATE: Thanks to tips from readers Kris and Mary Beth, we have another amazing option - the best one yet! It's the Sole Society "Kelly" and it's just $49.95. If you're not already a member, you'll have to join first (it's free), then search for "Kelly". First time customers can use code OCT20 to get $20 off their purchase, but hurry, this coupon expires at midnight tonight!

Love these! They are the perfect every occasion shoes. I have a nude patent pair just like those from CL by Laundry that I got for $50!

I, too, was searching for the perfect 'Edie' look for less + finally found it at Sole Society. It is called the 'Kelly'. They are absolutely perfect and less than $50!!!

I also own the Kelly! It is absolutely perfect. It fits great with the perfect heel height. They are $49.95 but if you are a first time customer and put in OCT20 before today is out you get $20. So they would only be $29.99
