The curved heel has been making its appearance quite often among stylish footwear lately, adding a futuristic yet minimalistic flair. Not to spare, Maison Martin Margiela brings us a common yet inspiring open toed bootie with a twist. His take on such a popular silhouette makes this design so easy to wear; the versatility goes on without an end just like the price tag. Beautiful, yes, but also extremely pricey. That’s why we have a steal below that is just as gorgeous as it is affordable!

It is my personal opinion that you have to be mentally ill if you do not like this classic staple of a bag! Yves Saint Laurent‘s Muse Large Leather Dome Satchel is a handbag that will never go out of style. This bag comes in several different colors, and I personally love it in the brown which is available through Forzieri. I also love Nicole Richie’s bright yellow version because it gives your most boring outfit a splash of color. If you don’t have the funds to splurge on this handbag we have another alternative for you!

I always say that the awesomeness of an article of clothing can be judged by how many talented stylists pull it for their clients to wear. If we go by my thought then the Dolce & Gabbana corset dress is something everyone should run out and buy. Was. Was something we should’ve bought. If you weren’t lucky enough to snag one last spring, it is unfortunately sold out, but read on…

UPDATE (05/26/2015): When I spotted this beautiful strapless pencil dress by bebe I instantly thought of the Dolce & Gabbana corset dress above and thought it would serve as a nice look 4 less alternative. Also available in petite sizes.

GUESS by Marciano Carmella Corset Dress

For those of you that are subscribing to my above style tip, or perhaps you just love the dress, GUESS by Marciano has created their own version of it. The Carmella dress is slightly more form-fitting, but still features the decorative vertical seams. This detailing is supposed to mimic boning and is extremely figure flattering. Carmella is a ton more affordable and conveniently available now in either white or gold.

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!

I’m still not cool with “Yves” being stripped from Saint Laurent, but I am definitely cool with the creative direction Hedi Slimane is taking the French fashion house. The shoes are especially fabulous. I really like the angular design of these black ankle boots. So chic! And expensive. Le sigh!

Steve Madden “DEVIL” High Heel Ankle Boots

Oh, Steve Madden – you are a “DEVIL” indeed! The description of these pointed-toe booties says “So sexy it’s just plain evil!” – well, I say “So close to the original, it’s just plain copying!“. Not that I mind too much though since the price tag of these $63.89 (sale price!) black booties is much easier to handle than the $950 one of the original Saint Laurent heels. Pre-order these beauties now if you want your Saint Laurent fix for less and have them ready when Fall comes around the corner!
