If you’ve never worn flats to work because they seem too informal, these pointy confections by Christian Louboutin may just be the anecdote. They are certainly among the most luxurious I’ve ever seen, and yet oddly familiar… like a pair that Holly Golightly might have pulled out from underneath the bed looking for her crocodile shoes in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Of course, although these are fantastic, perhaps you may want to check out the other options below if your budget doesn’t allow for such a large investment.

Ivanka Trump “Annulio” Pointed Flats

This lovely option by Ivanka Trump, is both ladylike and modern at the same time. Perfectly polished for work, and yet they have a little added flirtatiousness to them as well. If there ever was a pair of flats that could look fabulous with a skirt, it’s got to be these. The pointy toe will elongate your legs, while the small heel elevates the foot just enough to give you support, and not completely betraying you at the end of the day with cramped toes. Plus, the patent leather is very easy to maintain. These are currently available in black, coral, lime, burgundy, grey and nude patent leather as well as matte black leather.

J.Crew “Viv” Pointed Patent Flats

Leave it to J.Crew to offer some spring-infused alternatives made from great quality soft leather, and sure to provide a comfortable fit. At $188, they are a little bit more expensive than your average department store option, but you’ll instantly feel the difference in the way these will mold to your feet. If you love wearing stylish flats, consider investing in a quality pair that you’ll keep reaching for year after year! Plus, choosing a bright shade like Kelly Green is a great way to update your favorite weekend skinny jeans.

Report “Gonzalez” Pointed Flats

If you like to have a pair of shoes on standby for those days where you can’t even fathom wearing any kind of heel, the answer is this pair by Report. Perhaps you might try this more matte version with some sleek black leggings and a sweater dress? I definitely love my heels, but this is one very convincing alternative; especially for when I need to look polished, but my toes require a vacation. This pair is available in black, chestnut or nude patent leather.

Pour La Victoire “Bre” Pointed Flats

If you loved the color choices above, check out even more bright options with this beautifully constructed version by Pour La Victoire. While the shape of the shoe does provide a more polished look, you can really have fun and modernize with a some color by combining a fuchsia pair with your classic gray suit. Wear them also with tailored pants, or tapered capris! And why not invite your pretty a-line and full skirts to the party too? Just make sure to keep those skirt hems above the knee for the most flattering silhouette (shoes pictured are available in various colors and uppers).

If you had to pick one pair of shoes to give you that extra boost of confidence on any given day, these stunners by Christian Louboutin would be my choice. You can’t wear them and NOT have everyone looking at you. So, what will you wear with them? Will it include a pair of scene-stealing jeans or perhaps a figure-accentuating skirt? Either way, get ready to turn some heads. Wait, are you thinking: “How will I ever afford these?” – it’s OK, we’ve found hope. Take a look below!

Over the years I have fallen in love with so many Louboutins that I always thought: “Well, now he has outdone himself! I couldn’t love a shoe more!” – But then this shoe came along. The “Impera” – a truly imperial lasercut lace-up stiletto pump. So how divine could a shoe be? And even though it’s usually very hard for me to love a white heel, this one I absolutely ADORE! In both white and black leather. Just look how gorgeous these shoes look on the celebs! I’m especially in love with how Alessandra Ambrosio has worn her Loubies. Too bad they are a) sold out and b) totally out of my budget.

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!

Available for $139.95 in either black leather or light grey suede.

Oh my, Tom Ford, your shoes are giving me serious heart palpitations! So we’ve already shown you the OTT mirrored mosaic OTK boots from the SS14 collection two weeks ago and here we have another pair: a just as extravagant and insanely sexy lacey thigh-boot. But all that footwear sexiness comes with a price tag of $3.600. Yup, that should cool us down a little.
