Out & About

I’ve been a lot on my feet lately; running errands, organizing stuff and flat sandals have been my lifesavers! We all love a good high heel, but sometimes life just won’t let us have them. There’s a ton of ugly flat shoes out there, but there are also shoes out there like these by Givenchy. Classic and minimalistic and yet still fabulous in its own simple way, don’t you think? And expensive, of course. Let us not forget about that.

So there’s the Acne Pistol boots and the Rag & Bone Newbury booties – these both boot styles share the reign over the coveted designer bootie “goes-with-everything” kingdom in Hollywoodland. I’d love to join the fashionable crowd below, but spending $525 on shoes isn’t currently a viable option. However, I’ve found an almost identical match for all our budget-conscious readers and… well, me.

Who could not love Nikki Reed‘s outfit here? A cool leather jacket, red lips and matching heels, a striped shirt paired with skinny jeans and big black shades – isn’t that a look pretty much every woman would approve (and one that would make almost every woman look good in)? It’s equally cool and casual, but also dressed up thanks to the heels and red lips and a little badass, too. Below is our budget-friendly take on Nikki Reed’s fabulous outfit. Do you like it?

When it comes to Isabel Marant shoes, it’s always either hit or miss for me. Marant’s Birkenstock-like sandals from her recent S/S 2014 collection for example, didn’t resonate all too well with me, but these strappy high heel sandals here however are a total win in my book. They slightly remind me of a certain Alaïa pair from a couple years ago which is obviously a good thing because I’m absolutely obsessed with Alaïa shoes. Too bad these Marant heels are just as expensive as Alaïa’s. Boohoo!

Dior‘s “Mise En Dior” Earrings have become quite the new “It“-piece in the fashion world. They are pretty much sold out everywhere, despite their heavy price tag of $290 (and we’re talking costume jewelry here). I must say I am still a little undecided whether I love or hate these because while they do look great on the promo pics and on the celebs below, I’ve also seen pictures where they looked rather big and clumpy and made their wearer’s ears look huge and padded. But still, I am slightly leaning towards loving them for some reason. Maybe because they’re Dior.

Jarin K Double Side Earrings

UPDATE (10/11/2014): As you might know, the introductory price of Dior’s Mise En Dior earrings used to be $290, but due to their popularity and high demand Dior raised the price to over $400 this year which I think is absolutely outrageous. If you’re not willing to pay Dior’s new, inflated price (we’re talking costume jewelry after all) yet want to invest in a high-quality dupe that is going to last you a while, you might want to consider these double side earrings by Jarin K. While I think it’s a little shameless to sell someone else’s design for such a high price, I also think this is karma’s retaliation for Dior’s unjust markup.
