Fabulous shoe, meet my readers; readers, meet fabulous shoe aka the Shark-Lock Ankle Strap High Heel Sandals from Givenchy. I’ll always have a soft spot for Givenchy (and their shoes in particular), but this sleek, perfectly shaped high heel with the iconic shark-lock clasp that has become sort of Givenchy’s signature detail lately, has probably been my absolute favorite from their last couple of collections. You just can’t go wrong with a fabulous like this one, assuming you can foot the bill, of course. In this case, $975.

Steve Madden “MAYVEN” Ankle Strap Sandals

Not feeling like spending 1k on shoes? Well, how about $38.99 instead? Steve Madden‘s “MAYVEN” ankle strap heels will give you a very similar Givenchy look for roughly 4% of the real deal’s price. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

Lately I’ve been refraining myself from buying yet another pair of high heels. Because as much as I love a sky-high stiletto I just don’t have a hundred parties or special events to attend in order to be able to take yet another high heel out. I’d love to be one of those girls who can easily spend a whole day in five inchers, but the truth is that I run most of my daily errands in low to mid-heeled shoes – mostly booties in particular. I really like these Givenchy boots below for example. The various thin straps give this shoe a sort of mummy/bondage look which is a nice interesting detail and the heel while definitely manageable and still comfortable will give you another 2 inches plus. However, the price of $995 gives me the creeps!

UPDATE (11/05/2013): Stumbled upon this wallet-friendly beauty of a banded buckle bootie by N.Y.L.A.! A total steal at $19.97 and available in either black or beige faux leather.

Jeffrey Campbell “Isley” Bondage Buckled Boots

Taa-daa, leave it to Jeffrey Campbell to give us the Givenchy look for less! I really like the light beige color as it makes these booties appropriate for summer. JC’s version has an almond toe instead of a rounded one like the Givenchy original, but otherwise it’s pretty much spot-on! Just wish these boots came with a friendlier price tag!

Jeffrey Campbell “Isley” Slashed Open Toe Ankle Boots

Jeffrey Campbell have also come up with an open-toe version of the Isley in black. Personally, I’m not really digging an open-toe on a flat boot (hobo shoe resemblance anyone?), but if you want the Givenchy look in a black bootie, this one’s probably your best bet!

These black strappy sandals by Givenchy are just kick-ass. I wouldn’t necessarily wear them with a knee-length dress like Julianne Moore did below (the upper ankle straps cut off at a rather unflattering point leaving her look sort of stumpy), but I’d totally rock these babies with leggings, jeans or a short skirt/mini dress.

UPDATE (04/12/2013): Almost three years after the last update, I have come across these Nine West heels which are an almost spot-on dupe of the Givenchy designer heel version. Available in either black, emerald, brown and cognac leather for $135.99 (sale price)!

ALDO “Kantimati” Multi-Strap High Heel Sandals

UPDATE (04/11/2013): Also found these high heel sandals by ALDO which instantly reminded me of the Givenchys as well. $49.98 (sale price!) and also available in cognac.

Matiko “Mel” Open-Toe Sandals

UPDATE (05/26/2010): The Michael Antonio knockoffs didn’t get too many positive reviews, so if you love the Givenchy style and are willing to spend some cash on a high quality knockoff, try these sandals by Matiko. Available in black or brown.

Michael Antonio “Tazara” Strappy Sandals

If you’re digging the style, but frown upon paying the designer price (original retail price for the Givenchys was a whopping $1.150), leave it to Michael Antonio to satisfy your shoe needs while still staying on budget. Their “Tazara” strappy sandals are an almost identical copy of the banded Givenchy heels and they come in either black, tan, red or white. L.O.V.E.!

Victoria’s Secret angel and supermodel mom Miranda Kerr went for a monochrome casual cool getup recently when she departed from LAX on January 15, 2013, looking absolutely fabulous in oversized cat eye sunglasses, an animal print cardigan, black leather pants and her favorite Isabel Marant Bekket wedge sneakers. I loved Miranda’s look so much, I recreated it for you on a more budget-friendly level. Hope you like it!

I think I already mentioned once or twice here how much I adore Miranda Kerr‘s style?! Everything looks so effortless chic on her. Her latest outfit is probably one of my all-time favorites. The Victoria’s Secret model wore a grey bouclé coat with black leather shorts, sheer tights and black booties which she finished off with the lustworthy Givenchy Antigona satchel and a pair of Miu Miu sunglasses. What a dashing look, right?
