OMG. That stands for Oh. My. GUCCI! And oh, the hotness…Daryl, will you marry me? I am sick for this platform from the Gucci S/S 2010 collection. I mean, what else can I say, other than I think I need a cold shower? And so will anyone in the vicinity of a broad in these bodacious bondage-like shoes. Meeeeeeowwww, mama!

bebe “Lily” Leather Cutout Sandals

So why don’t I already own the Gucci Daryl? There are 930 reasons why, namely 930 George Washingtons that aren’t staring back at me from my wallet. I tell you, writing for this site is really going to get me in trouble because…look at that, whaddya know…our trusty friends at Bebe have produced the “Lily” Leather Cutout Sandal, a near replica. That I must buy. And at $149, you’re probably thinking the same thing, too. Hurry though—I’m betting they won’t last long.

Alexander Wang is undoubtedly the master of grunge. His clothes are exquisitely designed but also have a downtown edge. Leave it to Wang to create a LBD that is equal parts East-Village and Red-Carpet. A nude under layer hints at skin without actually showing any and a sweetheart neckline adds… well, sweetness. I’ll tell you something that isn’t sweet though: the hefty price tag. Oh, and did I mention it’s also sold out? Boo-hoo!

Topshop Bandage Ruch Bandeau Dress

Topshop‘s “Bandage Ruch Bandeau Dress” might not be a dead-ringer for the Alexander Wang dress above, but it’s pretty darn close. I might even argue that it’s better. I’m really enjoying the thicker bands of fabric that are strategically placed over the hip and bust area. Of course we still have that hint of a sweetheart neckline and the mini-length and at $90 (!) this really is a steal. I predict this one will sell out fast.

Real vs. Steal – Brian Atwood Lola Pumps

by Vahni on February 9, 2010

I’ve got to admit that I’m a bit surprised by the incredible popularity of the Brian Atwood Lola Pump, because it is bold shoe, to say the least. Yet Lola, and the peep-toe version Wiked, have been photographed on almost a dozen celebrities. No wonder why it’s now sold out.

Real vs. Steal – Givenchy Lace Ankle Sandals

by Vahni on February 1, 2010

What happens when you cross a lace bootie with a sandal? You get these sassy Lace Ankle Sandals by Givenchy—a clever alternative to the bootie. As hard as it is to believe, some people have not fallen head over stilettos in love with the bootie-with-skirts trend, and you can’t really blame them. It’s a tough look to carry, especially on some body types. But as you can see from the photo below, several celebs have figured out just how versatile and flattering this hybrid can be.

Coloriffics “Cyndi” Lace-up Sandals

Like so many other designer shoes we’ve featured here, the Givenchy pair is both steeply priced and sold out or at least very hard to get. So we offer you the Coloriffics “Cyndi” Lace-up Sandal. Although the lace on this pair rests on black suede (which cuts its transparency), they still mimic the flattering openness of the Givenchy sandal, so the look is not as heavy as a a peep-toe bootie. And hey—bonus!—the heels are not foot-wrenchingly high. Available in black and ivory.

Who would have thought that post-’80s, sequins (and ’80s silhouettes) would be all the rage. But they are, and sequins continue to decorate tank tops, gowns, and dresses—like this Hervé Léger that has been spotted on songstress Beyoncé Knowles. If there is one thing B knows, it’s how to rock a curve-hugging dress.
