Real vs. Steal

I don’t know exactly when and why, but over the last few years heeled ankle boots have become my personal shoe kryptonite. For some reason, I don’t seem to be able to let a month go by without buying a new pair of ankle boots. I’ll usually go for pairs-with-everything black, but occasionally my “adventurous” side will get the better of me and I’ll opt for a softer, less safe shade like tan, taupe or grey. So when I first saw these beautiful, neutral-colored suede ankle boots by Saint Laurent, I was instantly smitten. They’re casual and cool, complementing and blending effortlessly into any day-to-day outfit. Long story short: Saint Laurent’s “Blake” bootie is pretty much the perfect ankle boot – EVER! But it’s also pretty expensive at $895.

Sole Society “Leo” Suede Ankle Boots

Luckily, we’ve found a dead-on “Blake” dupe for you! Sole Society‘s “Leo” looks just like the Saint Laurent boot with the exception that it costs only a fraction of the real deal. The retail price for the Sole Society version used to be $109.95, but it’s currently on sale for half off! Now that’s what we call a real steal deal, so you better get advantage of this awesome deal while it’s still available! At this price I’d get them in all three colors!

Mango “Alba” Buckle Ankle Boots

Another fitting Saint Laurent alternative would have to be these tan suede ankle boots by Mango which may not be an identical “Blake” dupe, but are still close enough to give you the same laidback designer look. Bonus: these, too, are currently on sale for less than $60! Yay!

If there’s one thing Stuart Weitzman is exceptionally good at, it’s boots, especially the sexy kind. A few years ago, we had celebs and bloggers going crazy for the widely copied 50/50 OTK boots and now the fashion crowd is lusting after the “Highland”, a super sexy over-the-knee suede pull-on boot which has a lacing detail in the back. And even though I feel like I’ve seen this boot on pretty much every stylish celebrity and fashion blogger by now, I’m still not fed up with it in the slightest way. I also can’t seem to pick a favorite color! The taupe version is so cool and subdued while the black version really pops against bare legs and turns up the sexiness factor by quite a few notches! But as gorgeous as these suede thigh high boots are, at $798 these beauties are way too expensive for me to splurge on the real deal!

Oh Balmain, how I love your sharp-tailored blazers! And apparently Kim Kardashian does just the same as she’s been spotted wearing this gorgeous military-inspired double-breasted leather blazer on at least 12 different outings. And if you follow Kim K.’s style, you’ll know how rare it is to see her wear something as bold as this blazer more than once, so she must be really in love with this particular piece. I so wish I could afford me some Balmain real deal goodness, but at $3.710 this isn’t going to happen anytime soon.

Vakko for INC International Concepts Faux-Leather Blazer

While randomly browsing the big ol’ Internet today, I stumbled upon this chic faux leather blazer by INC International Concepts and it stopped me right in my tracks. Everything about it looked so familiar – the design, the colors, the silhouette – and after about five seconds it dawned on me: Balmain on a budget for sure! The original price for this piece used to be $169.50 which I find to be quite heavy for a *faux* leather blazer, but luckily it got marked down to a little over $100 as of now. So if you’re a passionate Balmain lover and are willing to invest a bit to get the coveted designer look, this is a great alternative.

We do see a whole lot of lace-up bodysuits or tops in stores nowadays, but back in 2015 Givenchy were among the first designers to rediscover this super sexy trend in their badass Fall/Winter collection 2015. Shortly after the collection debut, mega socialite Kim Kardashian wore the runway look head-to-toe, going braless in this deep plunging v-neck bodysuit and – if I might add – absolutely killing it while doing so! Sure, the outfit was risqué, revealing and overtly sexual, but Kim had the poise and attitude to pull it off. The lace-up bodysuit then continued to garner further fame and attraction as more celebrities and fashion insiders have been seen wearing this super sexy, bondage-inspired $2.600 Givenchy number. Yes, you read that right: this bodysuit costs $2.600!

Fall has officially arrived now and I am slowly starting to build my winter wardrobe. Acne Studios‘ “Velocite” shearling jacket has been an obsession of mine for several years. I just love the luxe-looking, plush shearling lining, the straps and buckles, the oversized moto look. It’s the perfect winter jacket and just look how fab and cozy all the style bloggers look in their Acne Velocite below. The only thing holding me back to get my own Acne Velocite? The price tag, of course. $2.800 is a pretty steep price.
