So how great was your summer yet? Very, I hope. As for Selena Gomez, well, it seems like she’s having the time of her life right now travelling around Europe, splashing in the water with friends; all that while wearing the nicest of clothes. This outfit she donned a few days ago in Italy was my absolute favorite Selena lately. The young actress wore a gorgeous white lace romper from Zimmermann, paired it with Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses and finished off her ensemble with Brian Atwood‘s super hot “Abell” studded heels. I loved Selena’s sexy and stylish look so much that I tried to recreate it for you on a more accessible level. You like?

It’s hard to define a signature style for Givenchy, but their shoes have been pretty masculine and tough-looking lately. Case in point: this chain-adorned chunky ankle boot. Statement chains have been on trend for quite a while now (it all started with Céline’s ID Choker Necklace, remember?) and this boot fabulously shows how to wear mentioned statement chain on your feet instead of your neck. If you love chains and chunky boots and have quite the powerful checkbook, here you go: $1.550 and these trendy designer boots are all yours!

These shoes aren’t meant for long walks, but rather, to be candy for the feet. Slick and feminine, these heels by Jimmy Choo are definitely built for style. But aren’t there times in our lives when the Wow!-factor is exactly what we crave? Okay, there are many times – and for those instances, shoes like these were made. But is the price tag worth the amount of mileage they’ll get compared to the rest of your collection? We can relate, so keep an eye out for a copycat below.

I’m still not cool with “Yves” being stripped from Saint Laurent, but I am definitely cool with the creative direction Hedi Slimane is taking the French fashion house. The shoes are especially fabulous. I really like the angular design of these black ankle boots. So chic! And expensive. Le sigh!

Steve Madden “DEVIL” High Heel Ankle Boots

Oh, Steve Madden – you are a “DEVIL” indeed! The description of these pointed-toe booties says “So sexy it’s just plain evil!” – well, I say “So close to the original, it’s just plain copying!“. Not that I mind too much though since the price tag of these $129.95 black booties is much easier to handle than the $950 one of the original Saint Laurent heels. Pre-order these beauties now if you want your Saint Laurent fix for less and have them ready when Fall comes around the corner!

I have yet to come across an Alaïa shoe that I don’t like or covet. His footwear creations are always the right amount of edgy, sexy and creative. Just take a look at these super hot leather and stretch crisscross stilleto sandals! Imagine how awesome these would look with a leather leggings and a structured white blazer! They’re currently on sale at NET-A-PORTER (which is a good thing), but even the sale price is still pretty steep at $1.347,50. Some day… some day I will own a pair of Alaïa heels! Too bad it can’t be these ones.
