Real vs. Steal – Alaïa Mesh Cutout Lace Up Booties

October has arrived which means it’s officially “bootie time“. I have been swooning over Alaïa shoes for years now and I have yet to be disappointed. A few season ago Azzedine Alaïa created these beautiful nude suede high heel lace up ankle boots which have clear cutout mesh panels. Aren’t they absolutely pretty? I can totally see them working with almost anything in a woman’s wardrobe (jeans, dresses, you name it). Unfortunately, Alaïa shoes aren’t known to be budget-friendly… what a bummer!

Chinese Laundry “Lacee” Mesh Panel Lace Up Platform Ankle Boots

These Chinese Laundry lace up platform booties may not be of Alaïa quality, but they surely look a lot like Alaïa, don’t they? The price tag however is a lot nicer at $60.28 (compared to Alaïa’s steep $1.175). Available in blush and black suede.
