This year seems to be the year of the stud. It’s like the whole world decided to get its Rebel Yell on and rock studs on everything from once-innocent flats, to jackets, to headbands, to bags—from high-street to your street. I offer you Exhibit A, the Garbo Studded Tote by Be & D. Mmm-hmmm. Nice, eh?

If you’re like me, and you can’t bear the thought of renting a bag, becoming attached, then having to send it back, I offer you Exhibit B, the Handbag Heaven Morgan Studded Rock Tote. All those shiny studs against a brown backdrop are sure to kick up even the tamest outfit. And the price! You don’t have to be Taylor to afford this one.

I’ve been loving this floaty summer look by Audrina Patridge for weeeeeeeeks now. We broke down Audrina’s designer items in a previous post already and now we finally have found affordable look for less items to recreate Audrina’s outfit on a budget. Thoughts?

Salma Hayek made an appearance on Letterman this Monday to promote her newest film “Grown Ups“. And dare I say that Miss Hayek (I refuse to call her Mrs. Hayek-Pinault!) looked a-friggin’-mazing in an amethyst Alexander McQueen crepe dress paired with nude YSL Tribtoos (yup, they’re still going strong) and the obligatory “No paparazzi, please!” Ray-Ban aviator sunnies. I can’t even tell you just how much I adore this dress and how I love it on Salma. The vibrant color, the fact that it’s Alexander McQueen, how it hugs Salma’s delicious curves… a truly stunning look for the actress (♥)

I confess: I. Love. Gucci. Especially the magnificent spring 2010 collection, with its ikat-meets-robot dresses and accessories. Who else could mix tribal, bondage, and mod—and do it so successfully? Apparently Heidi Klum is a fan as well. Let’s not all hate her cause she’s beautiful (even after popping out her own tribe of kids) and in Gucci, OK?

I haven’t been aware of fashion designer Isabel Marant for quite a long time, but ever since I saw Sienna Miller donning an awesome pair of killer stud booties by the French designer, I knew this had to change. The clothes she designs are really great, but her shoes are where it’s really at for me. Case in point: the chain-wrapped slouchy suede boots from her Spring 2009 collection which have been lusted after by fashion connoisseurs around the world.

For some reason celebrities haven’t picked up on these kickass boots yet. Miley Cyrus, not particularly known for her impeccable style, has been the only who rocked these suede boots on stage.

Jeffrey Campbel “Third” Suede Chain Boots

Jeffrey Campbell might not deserve a creativity award for his work since most of his styles are based on some other designer’s shoes, but I have to give kudos to him for being a great trendspotter. He picks up on trends when most high street retailers still replicate stuff from last season. These chain boots are an almost identical copy of the original Isabel Marant boots. They are not the cheapest at $244.95, but since the originals cost about $1300, they are still a great budget-friendly alternative.
