Soooooo, Chanel espadrilles, anyone? Let me tell you: last year they were EVERYWHERE! I feel like I’ve seen them on pretty much every famous style blogger’s feet. Chanel released a couple different variations, one of which are these black cap-toe mesh espadrille flats. I must admit I have grown quite fondly of this particular version, but I don’t see myself spending $450 on a pair of espadrille shoes anytime soon.

Valentine’s Day is approaching and I’m still not a big fan. I do like to dress up for special occasions however, that’s why I decided to let my imagination run wild to create an imaginary V-Day outfit. This year I wanted the look to be bold, so I went with a red and black color theme. The floral-embroidered top is obviously the eyecatcher in this look and adds some serious drama while the rest of the outfit is kept classic yet sexy yet feminine. Do you like it? And what are your outfit ideas for Valentine’s Day?

To this date Manolo Blahnik‘s “Hangisi” Cobalt Blue Satin Pumps are still one of the most requested shoes for a Real vs. Steal post on this blog. Our inbox is filled with emails from women who asked us to find a budget-friendly alternative to Carrie Bradshaw’s beautifully blue Manolos in the 2008 Sex and the City movie. And while there are quite a few wonderful Hangisi look-alikes out there, many of them run either on the rather expensive side or are simply not available anymore, so I was super happy when I came across these vivid blue satin heels by ASOS because they’re the perfect blank canvas for a DIY Manolo Blahnik Hangisi shoe project. All you need – besides the ASOS shoes, of course – is a pair of sparkly shoe clips and you’re good to go! I happened to find a really cute version by this brand called Absolutely Audrey for $22.95 which will give you a very similar look to the Manolo Blahniks. The total price for this super basic DIY amounts to a little over $90 which is less than 1/10 of the real deal’s price. Now that’s what I call a real steal deal!

New Year’s Eve Outfit – Black & Gold

by Irina on December 31, 2015

And here we are again. The last day of the year has come and once more it’s time to say our goodbyes to a year gone by so fast. Reflecting on the last 12 months: the good, the bad and the ugly makes me all melancholic, excited and thankful at the same time. I know it sounds super cliché, but I love New Year’s Eve, it always gives me that sense of new beginnings and endless possibilities laying ahead. That’s why I love to dress up on this special day and celebrate it champagne, heels and lots of glitter. This year I felt like going with a black and gold theme. Simple elegance combined with bold jewelry. Sexy and daring without being overly complicated, a mantra I also want to become my mindset in 2016. What’s yours?

New Year's Eve Outfit - Black & Gold

A few last words: make sure to say goodbye to all the bad things that have happened to you and leave them behind in the year 2015. Concentrate on a fresh, new start, reset your body and mind and do whatever makes you happy in 2016. Happy new year, everyone!

We’ve featured quite a number of Christian Louboutin shoes here on InTheirCloset and I think that’s because, other than being extremely popular with our readers, they are also what I would classify as “classic”. Louboutin pumps range from demure to over the top but almost all of them feel timeless. CL’s “Claudia” ankle-strap sandals are no exception. They are simply a new take on a tried and true shoe. Look how beloved these are by hollywood starlets and Playboy bunnies alike. You’d probably have to be either or both to swing that price tag though.

Ivanka Trump “Bulbli” Ankle Strap Sandals

Update (12/14/2010): Well, well. Seems like Ivanka Trump can add shoe designer to her resume now?! Or maybe not because her “Bulbli” sandals look like spot-on clones of Louboutin’s Claudias though I must admit they have the much nicer price tag. Available in black, red or graphite patent.

Aldo “Brodigan” Ankle Strap Sandals

Thank you, Aldo, for bringing us a shoe both lovely and affordable. No, my friends, you will not be able to show off that red sole, but if it’s class you’re looking for, look no further. Aldo’s “Brodigan” pump is the versatile, cocktail pump you’ve been looking for minus the hefty price tag. *Ding Ding*. We have a winner! Also available in a great nude color.
