Oh my, oh my, oh my! I don’t have words to describe how much I’m in love with these black buckled stiletto booties by Giuseppe Zanotti. They’re so hot and the side buckles are such a sexy little detail, don’t you agree? Too bad even the sale price makes me want to cut my credit card in two.

This beautiful crystal-studded high heel sandal by Sergio Rossi is what I call a perfect “Cinderella shoe“. It’s a total showstopper and will give any bland outfit (e.g. an elegant but slightly boring LBD) the right amount of bling and sass. If you’re just as much in love as I am and have the needed pocket change of $1.660, then go ahead and buy your Cinderella dream shoe. However, if you’re a fashionista on a budget with a broke Prince Charming, then read on to find some budget-friendly alternatives. Just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Ever since I first featured BP.’s “Trolley” booties as a possible alternative for the Acne Pistol boots, they’ve become quite popular with this blog’s readers. So when I recently discovered a spot-on “Trolley” boot look-a-like for less than 25% of the steal deal’s price, I knew I had to share it with you. So here you go: Reneeze’s Baba-02 Zip Ankle Boots. Happy shopping!

For many years, I’ve been anti-flats, especially the closed ones. I can’t really recall why I disliked them so much, I guess they just never really spoke to me. However, now that I’ve been dipping my toes in the fashion world for a few years, I grew to like flats. As long as they look so cute like this one from Carven. Isn’t it adorable? I love the slingback bow, it’s such a cute detail. Would I spend $540 on a pair of cute flats though? Well, that’s a complete different story.

So let me be honest with you. At first, I kind of hated Christian Louboutin‘s Daffodile pumps. They looked too stripperish, too high, just totally OTT. However, the more I saw these extreme platform pumps being flaunted by celebs on and off the red carpet the more I started to like them. Not sure what changed my mind about these… maybe the extra few inches gained by wearing these sky-high beauties? I’m not sure, but I do know that I certainly don’t like the $995 price tag attached to these designer heels.
