Shoes

UPDATE: This post has been updated on August 9, 2013. Scroll down to see the new add.

Some shoes take time to grow on me; others I want immediately. The studded clogs from Chanel‘s S/S 2010 runway fell into the latter category. I don’t know if it’s the 60s-70s clothes kick I’ve been on recently or maybe just the fact that I love how nude shoes of all kinds elongate the leg (that 4 inch heel helps, too), but I prayed to the fashion gods above that someone would come out with a knock-off (the Chanel shoes being out of my budget and all). Usually, my prayers of that kind get answered – by the Steve Maddens and Jeffrey Campbells of the world – and I was not disappointed…

Jeffrey Campbell “Karl” Clogs

UPDATE (02/27/2010): Jeffrey Campbell has released a new version of the Charlie clog named “Karl” with a raffia fabric upper in either navy or beige. So pretty!

Jeffrey Campbell “Charlie” Clogs

I just received these Jeffrey Campbell “Charlie” clogs (I ordered them immediately after seeing them) and I have to tell you – they’re just as fabulous as I imagine Chanel’s to be. That scary 4 inch + heel is surprisingly comfortable to walk in and I just love their retro spirit. From the chunky wooden heel to the gold studs, these are truly an excellent knock-off. And for $178 (see retailers listed below for more prices), they’re really a steal. The clogs are available in either beige, black or tan.

It’s quite hard to find dressy-slash-sexy flat sandals in comparison to how easy it is to find a hot high heel these days. However, these t-strap flats by Giuseppe Zanotti certainly fit the description! Signore Zanotti has developed this signature style lately where he would add metal plated embellishments on the shoe like found here back on the heel and t-strap (see another example here). I can totally see these working with a black maxi dress or a nice pair of denim shorts. But $750 for that bit of shoe? I think I have to pass this time!

Right now I can’t stand the thought of wearing boots in this heat, but fall season isn’t so far away and if you don’t know what ankle boots to stock up on, check out these Western-style booties by Italian shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti. I love the twist with the built-in semi-wedge heel, but I sure don’t love the price: $1.150! Ouch!

Chinese Laundry “Sergio” Cowgirl Wedged Booties

If you love the style of Zanotti’s fashionable cowgirl booties, but can’t afford to spend that much on a pair of shoes, take a look at these Chinese Laundry ankle boots. It’s obviously heavily inspired by the designer boots seen above even though they don’t have the pebbled leather texture. But the overall design is super similar and the price ain’t not too bad as well: $150! Plus, until today you can save 20% off sitewide and get free shipping on orders of $75+ with promo code “SUMMER20” at Chinese Laundry! But hurry, the offer ends 8/3! P.S.: These booties also come in red leather.

Very much the modern update on a classic pointy-toe pump, this design by Christian Louboutin is perfect for the fashionista who wants to be the first to add another sexy pair of heels to her wardrobe. While most versatile in black, (the way Rihanna and Lea Michele wear theirs), if you’ve got the budget to also get them in neon yellow… you can count on your feet getting a considerable amount of attention all season and beyond. And considering the popularity of this pair among Hollywood’s most stylish stars, it’s no wonder you can’t find them in stores. But, the good news is other designers are definitely catching on and look-a-likes have begun to emerge… One of the first designs to echo this coveted futuristic design at an affordable price is shown below…

Wild Rose Posy-01 PVC Ankle Strap Pumps

If you are a huge fan of the designer look above, then why not have a little fun with this version by Wild Rose? While it’s definitely not worth a huge investment, if you’re one to try many different styles, you can have a lot of fun wearing these. I do wish they had a little bit of a higher/skinnier heel and lower cut toe, but for ca. $30 you can play with this trend and show a little pop of neon under some trousers during cocktail hour. Pick one other accessory in a complimentary neon shade (like a cuff or a great belt) to really pull the outfit together and make it look effortless. Perhaps try the bright orange pair under some navy pinstripe trousers, a white blouse and a couple bright bangles in gold and magenta.

‘Tis the season to get your spike on! From spiked heels to spiked drinks – I am so down! Which is why this Pigalle “Loubie” should totally be in my stocking. But at over $1.000 and the fact that it’s sold out – ol’ St. Nick won’t be dropping these babies off anytime soon! No worries though, all my naughty girls; we found a nice lil’ knockoff below.

See… naughty girls need love, too. And these pretty pumps as well! “Bahia” by STUDIO TMLS is not as spiked or as high as the Pigalle, but for about roughly 10% of the original cost, I think we can deal with these few exceptions. But not spiking my drink with enough of the good stuff is a whole other story. ;-)
