Hello, and welcome back to Find it Fridays! My latest challenge for Shine's weekly fashion scavenger hunt came from a reader named Elm. Here is the item she's looking for:



"Blake Lively's crystal flats. I read they were made by Louboutin, but are way too expensive. I need something similar because they are so darn cute and go with everything! Under $50 preferably."



Hi, Elm! Blake Lively's shoes are in fact Christian Louboutins, and they retail for a whopping $2,400! While real crystals can't be had for only $50 you can definitely replicate the look of these multicolor flats with glitter or rhinestones. As always, I've found 10 items I felt achieved what you were looking for and stayed within your budget. Please let me know if you like these choices. Readers: please weigh in on which one you think Elm should pick! Do you have any additional tips on where she can find sparkly flats? Let her know in the comments.
