Tory Burch

Update: This post has been updated on August 28, 2010. Scroll down to see the new add.

I never paid that much attention to Tory Burch until now, but these lace-up boots here definitely put her on my radar. I like the masculine shape, the buckles and chunky heel and I think they’d look fantastic if paired with a feminine floral dress to balance out the look and put in some extra contrast.

Dolce Vita “Joelle” Boots

UPDATE (08/28/2010): These lace-up boots by Dolce Vita are a rather pricey knockoff, but they’re still less than half the price of the originals & also not sold out.

Dollhouse “Rogeri” Lace-up Boots

UPDATE (10/31/2009): Found another, much cheaper Tory Burch knockoff pair by Dollhouse which also looks more like the original actually.

RSVP “Beatrice” Lace-Up Boots

While these boots by RSVP might not be blatant knockoffs I think they still qualify as a great alternative if you are looking for a cheaper version of the Tory Burch boots. They are not quite what I’d call a steal at $169 a pair, but still about $430 less than the originals. Also available in brown (my personal favorite!).

Fab Friday 5 – Vahni Edition

by Vahni on July 23, 2010

So this is my first Fab Friday 5 post, and I’m totally excited (and not just because it’s Friday)! Every week I come across so many delicious things during my Internet wanderings, and now I finally have a place (and people) to share them with. Hope you enjoy exploring this selection—wishing you all a happy weekend.

Fab Friday 5 - Vahni Edition #001

The Breakdown:

  1. LOLA&BAILEY Long Live McQueen Tote, $49 – A clever—and cheeky—version of the classic expression that is also an homage to one of England’s greatest exports. Originally sourced by
  2. Vera Wang Lavender “Gabriella” Sandalsls, $425 – Kind of like a shorter version of the oh-so-covetable Gucci Helena boot.
  3. Afterglow Wing Knuckle Duster Ring, $70 – I love a good knuckle duster, and this one in sterling by Afterglow is so cool, don’t you think?
  4. NET-A-PORTER Magazinels, Free! – Even if the prices are beyond your budget, NET-A-PORTER’s online magazine is a visual feast that is chock full of style inspiration. And it’s weekly, so you can get your fashion fill between monthly print issues.
  5. Tory Burch Lucite Cuff in black, $45 – A little avant garde, a little tough girl chic. Buy two and sport them Wonder Woman style, to really make a statment.
