Today marks the first day of Fall which also means: it’s officially bootie time! And let me tell you: I loooooove bootie time! Why, you ask? Because I loooooove booties, silly. And how could I not with so many fab ankle boots such as these by Giuseppe Zanotti available around me? The asymmetrical zipper that runs across the boot is such a nice extra detail, don’t you agree? It’s what makes this shoe stand out without being too loud and demanding. I love when shoes have that vibe. What I don’t love though? The price of these Zanottis. And we’re already talking sale price here. Sheesh!

ALDO Asteilia Stiletto Ankle Boots
Update (08/15/2018): Spotted these stylish stiletto booties at ALDO the other day and remembered that we’ve featured a similar Giuseppe Zanotti design a few years before. ALDO’s ankle boots don’t have the buckle strap on the shaft, but otherwise they’re a good dupe match, wouldn’t you agree? They’re available in either black or white leather for $140.
