Shoes

So we’re back to Alaïa! These shoes might seem familiar because we’ve already written about the lace-up version of this hot mesh cut-out bootie a few months ago. And surprise, surprise, I’m totally in love with this Alaïa style as well! But as usual there’s no way I could afford it. Boohoo!

Audrey Brooke “Venice” Mesh Booties

Luckily, I can afford these $69.95 mesh booties by Audrey Brooke which are a great Alaïa alternative if you can’t spend a fortune on the real designer originals.

Kristin Cavallari for Chinese Laundry “Letizia” Mesh Platform Booties

I also stumbled upon these platform mesh ankle booties by Chinese Laundry which are also obviously inspired by the Alaïa heels above. They’re a bit more expensive than the Audrey Brooke shooties but still waaaaaay cheaper than the real deal. Available in black, nude, rose and red suede.

Real vs. Steal – Zara Flat Jelly Sandals

by Irina on February 16, 2014

UPDATE: This post has been updated on February 16, 2014. Scroll down to see the new add.

Chances are you’ve already seen these rhinestoned two-tone t-strap flats by ZARA somewhere. Maybe you saw them on a style blog (or many, as I have) or maybe you spotted them on someone else’s feet out in the streets last summer; you might even have contemplated getting them yourself while perusing the ZARA store for the latest fashion finds. I’m not sure whether ZARA designed these with some other designer shoe in mind (not that I know of) since they like to “borrow” from the latest runway styles. Anyway, these t-strap flats became quite the hot seller and sold out at full-price in no time.

Bamboo Lynna 01 Rhinestone Studded Strappy Flats

Et voilà! Bamboo brings us a perfectly finde substitute in faux suede leather for under $12! Is that amazing or what? Love the sandals, love the price! I think I even prefer the Bamboo flats over the ZARA version since I really don’t like having gummy plastic material cover my feet (even though the ZARA sandals also don’t look quite like a jelly flat to me). Anyway, better get them now before these sell out as well and so you’re ready to rock a pair of super cute summer shoes when warmer weather comes around.

Back in April, we received a reader request from Anais asking us to find a look-4-less option for these gorgeous side-buckle booties by Giuseppe Zanotti from the SS2013 collection. At this time there weren’t any look-a-likes of these Zanotti ankle boots available, so I told Anais to wait a few months because I was sure that eventually I would find something suitable for her. I kept her email in my “open requests”-folder and yesterday was the day I could finally check off Anais’ request because I managed to find 2 great look for less alternatives. Woohoo! I hope you like my steal finds, dear Anais!

So I am usually neither a big fan of chunky military boots nor am I a white shoes person, but the moment I spotted these all white Doc Martens on Solestruck’s Instagram I was OBSESSED! I instantly pictured an outfit with them in my head and had to share it with you. I really can’t get enough of black and white lately, can you? And what do you think of the look or the monochrome standout boots? Yay or nay?

I know we’re still a million light years away from summer, but I’ve had enough of winter already! And I’ve especially had enough of boots and booties – I miss wearing my airy summer shoes so much! Speaking of summer shoes, how lovely are these ankle wrap wedge espadrilles by Jimmy Choo? I am absolutely in loooove with them! Too bad they’re all sold out! But even if they weren’t, $495 is a pretty steep price for a pair of espadrilles, don’t you agree?

These ELLE wedge espadrilles might miss the ankle wrap, the rest, however, looks pretty much identical to the Jimmy Choos above. And who wouldn’t love the price? Steal deal alert!
