OMG! I’m out of words. If I had to describe these gold strass stiletto pumps by Christian Louboutin with 3 words, mine would be SEX – DIVA & DANGER. No need for a foreplay if you’re wearing these heels. I probably could walk (or rather stand) in these a mere 5 minutes at most, but it’d be sooo worth it. Too bad they’re out of my budget. Even though I don’t know the exact retail price I’m pretty sure it’s somewhere around $2.000-$3.000. Bummer!

Does this sound familiar? You see something and are really turned off by it first, but then, the more you look at it, the more it grows on you until you become obsessed with it? That happens to me quite often I must admit. In almost every case it’s a shoe which I first hate, then like and finally LOVE! The last time this happened to me was with these lace-up ankle boots by Ann Demeulemeester.

($985, Saks Fifth Avenue)

P.S.: Also available at ShoeScribe.comls, The Corner & Lane Crawfordls.

When I first saw them, I thought they were way too clunky for a woman’s feet. But I couldn’t help but be fascinated by them, so I decided to give them another chance and googled them. Sometimes, in order to be able to see a shoe’s full potential, you have to see it on a person’s feet. That was definitely the case with the Ann Demeulemeester lace-up boots. The moment I saw the models flaunting them in a mini dress, I was irrevocably in LOVE!

UPDATE (09/18/2013): I know these Elizabeth and James boots aren’t a perfect dupe match and at $475 not exactly budget-friendly, but if you’re looking for an Ann D. inspired closed-toe version these here are probably your best bet at the moment.

Jeffrey Campbell Corset Heels

UPDATE (10/05/2009): More good news! Free People have finally restocked Jeffrey Campbell’s Ann Deumeulemeester knockoffs. Missed out on these the first time? Now is your chance to get hold of these cuties!

Sometimes I think everything Jeffrey Campbell does these days is copying other people’s work. Well, it may be unethical, but at least it allows us budget fashionistas to be fashionable without the hefty price tag. Look at these beautiful, almost identical knockoffs. Pretty amazing, huh? They sure are shamelessly expensive for knockoffs, but even priced at $198 they are about $700 les than the originals, so they can’t be TOO bad, right? All sizes are still available, but you better be fast as these knockoffs won’t stay for too long (they’re also exclusively sold at Free People, so if they are gone there, you won’t find them anywhere else).

We’ve discussed the fabulousness of Céline bags various times on this blog already, but did you know that the French design house makes some pretty great eyewear, too? Take their “Audrey” sunglasses for example. I love the simple yet chic design of these super black oversized sunnies, but the price tag of more than $190 (and we’re talking sale price here) is unfortunately a little to steep for my budget. Boohoo!

Spektre “She Loves You” Sunglasses

UPDATE (05/02/2015): I also stumbled upon these sunglasses by Spektre which are obviously an hommage to Céline’s Audrey. They’re not a steal at $255, but they might be a good alternative should the real deal ever become unavailable. Available in an array of colors and lenses.

We’re slowly approaching the month of May, so I think it’s time we start putting our thoughts to what we’re going to wear on our feet during summer. One of my personal summer shoe favorites: wedges, of course! They can be chic, comfortable and they add height without killing your feet. These studded wedge sandals by famed French shoemaster, Monsieur Christian Louboutin, is absolute wedge perfection! And the nude color will elongate your legs even further. Too bad there’s a $795 price tag between me and my new perfect summer shoe match though!

I’m such a fan of Saint Laurent‘s classic shoe line, but why does it have to be so darn expensive? Spending $685 on a pair of simple black pumps? Not in my budget, unfortunately.

Madden’s heels have a zipper in the back.
