I confess: I. Love. Gucci. Especially the magnificent spring 2010 collection, with its ikat-meets-robot dresses and accessories. Who else could mix tribal, bondage, and mod—and do it so successfully? Apparently Heidi Klum is a fan as well. Let’s not all hate her cause she’s beautiful (even after popping out her own tribe of kids) and in Gucci, OK?

Killing me softly with their song, killing me softly… What? Huh? Oh. Sorry, I was having a moment. I could swear I heard the siren song of the Gucci S/S 2010 collection calling my name. And in that same hypnotic moment, I envisioned walking into my closet and seeing Daryl, and Gail, and all my favorite Gucci friends. Sigh.

bebe “Shana” Leather Cuffed Platform Sandals

You know what I’m going to write, right? That I’d totally be rocking the Gucci Gail this very moment if only they weren’t $795. But as such, they are relegated to my footwear fantasies. So again, we turn to bebe, which has become quite the reliable source for designer-inspired shoes. The Shana Leather Cuffed Platform Sandals vary slightly compared to Gucci’s Gail, but they still have the same impact. Not for the weak at heart, no they aren’t. So should you decide to throw caution to the wind and strut these 5.75-inchers, at least the price tag won’t give you heart palpitations. Available in black and white.

OMG. That stands for Oh. My. GUCCI! And oh, the hotness…Daryl, will you marry me? I am sick for this platform from the Gucci S/S 2010 collection. I mean, what else can I say, other than I think I need a cold shower? And so will anyone in the vicinity of a broad in these bodacious bondage-like shoes. Meeeeeeowwww, mama!

bebe “Lily” Leather Cutout Sandals

So why don’t I already own the Gucci Daryl? There are 930 reasons why, namely 930 George Washingtons that aren’t staring back at me from my wallet. I tell you, writing for this site is really going to get me in trouble because…look at that, whaddya know…our trusty friends at Bebe have produced the “Lily” Leather Cutout Sandal, a near replica. That I must buy. And at $149, you’re probably thinking the same thing, too. Hurry though—I’m betting they won’t last long.

I never wrote that much about Gucci clothes or shoes before because basically I never cared about their line nor did it ever appeal to me. This season however their women’s footwear range is just mindblowing and I’m beyond obsessed with their sky-high platform high heels. So dangerous! It doesn’t come as a surprise that the name of these platform peep-toe booties is “Kills” because whoa! they’re definitely KILLER! You know what kills me besides? Their price tag. $990 isn’t exactly pocket change.

Steve Madden “BELINA” Platform Booties

Thank God for Steve Madden who once more proves with these Gucci knockoffs that he’s still on top of the copycat game. If you crave these booties as much as I do, make sure to take advantage of the sale and these booties will cost you $59.98 only instead of the regular $120. Most sizes are still available!

With shoes, it’s like that: the more the merrier and the higher the better. Almost every outfit can be stepped up a notch if worn with a pair of high heels. Don’t believe me? Try it yourself and you’ll see I’m right. Your legs will look leaner and longer and your whole posture will improve. Anyway… while I’ve never been much of a Gucci fan, I must admit I’ve been quite pleased (OK, more like obsessed) with their footwear range for Fall 2009. Especially with these triple platform stiletto platforms. So dangerous and surely super hard to walk in.

ALDO “Fogler” Platform Pumps

I first read about these Gucci inspired pumps by ALDO on Rachel Zoe’s website, so the finder’s credit goes out to her. They might not be quite as delicate as the Gucci heels, but at $125 they’re a great alternative if buying the real deal is out of question. Also available in grey and purple.
