Real vs. Steal

I didn’t really know much about Tom Ford prior to Vahni‘s arrival here at InTheirCloset, but ever since V brought the Texan-born designer extraordinaire onto my fashion radar a few years back, he never really left since. And now that I’ve vigilantly watched Ford and the fashion scene for a couple years, I feel entitled to profess the following: nobody does black & gold quite like Tom Ford. Let that sink in for a moment [...] Alright, let’s get to these awe-mazing zipper-adorned high heel booties of his, shall we? Normally, the thought of a zipper being stuck on my designer heels would sound like my worst fashion nightmare, but the magic appeal of Tom Ford kindly begs to differ. Two words: badass and obsessed! Sadly, these ultra sexy and equally unique high heel booties never received the celebrity coverage they deserved (or any personal style blogger love, for that matter). So far, only Mary J. Blige seems to have been brave and fierce enough to rock these zippered beauties yet. Not sure why, but maybe that price tag of $1.390 might have had something to do with it.

ZiGi Girl “Tabatha” Zipper-Heel High Heel Booties

This one’s for you, V! Enter ZiGi Girl‘s “Tabatha” Booties. They ain’t Tom Ford, I know, but they are the next best thing to Tom Ford for $129.95. ‘Cause as much as we’d all love to have the real deal in our closets, at almost $1.400 this ain’t a viable option for most us. So we have to settle for Tom Ford on a budget instead. Yay to paying rent and all the other boring stuff! Get these lovely (and budget-friendly) Tom Ford dupes as fast as you can click that “Buy now“-button because I sense an “Out of stock“-warning very soon here…

Let me tell you: if you have a chance to get your hands on a pair of Thierry Lasry sunglasses at a reasonable price, do NOT miss it! I bought a pair very similar to the ones shown below this Spring and they’ve quickly become my absolute favorite to wear during the summer. The quality is superb (very sturdy material, made in France) and they have a very classic, timeless design that will never go out of style. Just take a look at how cool they are on style blogger Chiara Ferragni. So fierce, right? However, retail prices for Thierry Lasry sunglasses are ridiculously high, so I would recommend buying this brand during a sale (I was super lucky and got mine for 50% off!).

The design is almost identical, but these stylish cateye sunglasses here can be purchased for less than 10% of the real deal. Score!

Well, hello there Giuseppe Zanotti darlings! You look quite nice. I love your serpent gold ankle strap detail along with the snake-embossed leather and the pin-thin stiletto heel of yours. How about you both hop into my shopping cart, huh? Oh, wait a moment, is that a $1.600 price tag I spot on you? Uhm, well, it was really nice meeting you. Gotta go now. Bye!

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.
