Let’s talk about wedges for a moment. Just how good are they? I mean, you can either eat or wear them. Pure genius! 😉 All (stale) jokes aside though, wedges are definitely a girl’s best friend. They are the best compromise between extra height and comfort. These slingback espadrille wedges by Céline are admittedly cute, but they don’t really make me want to spend almost $500 on them.

Real vs. Steal – Anine Bing Studded Boots

by Irina on February 24, 2015

I feel like Anine Bing‘s microstud ankle boots are the official successors of Chloé’s highly popular Susan boots. The distinctive stud styling and the long pointed-toe make them instantly stand out and these boots quickly gained momentum in the fashion world and were a regular shoe staple among all the biggest fashion bloggers. I’m not quite sure where the brand came from all of a sudden, but I’ll definitely keep Anine Bing on my fashion radar.

So I think this is the first time, after more than 3 years of writing this blog, that I feature a sneaker here on In Their Closet. Of course, it couldn’t be just any ordinary sneaker for this occasion, no, it had to be a “fashion sneaker” naturally, the most popular one being the “Bekett” / “Bekket” velcro sneaker by Madame Isabel Marant at this time. Personally, I both like and hate them; I’ve never been too fond of sporty looking shoes, but these exude that cool kid vibe and how clever is the hidden built-in wedge? Genius.
