When I first saw these studded combat boots and read that they are Saint Laurent, I had to double check it because I wasn’t expecting this drastic change of style from Hedi Slimane. His first womenswear collection for (Y)SL was very classic and feminine and so were the shoes (e.g. “Jane” high heel and “Paris” ankle boot) that it seemed unlikely to me that Slimane would swing in such a different direction within just one season. But obviously I was wrong and Slimane’s second collection for Saint Laurent (F/W 13/14) was screaming nineties grunge all over! And while I prefer Slimane’s first collection over the second one (including the footwear), I must admit that these spike-encrusted boots have a strange appeal that I can’t quite put in words.

Jessica Buurman “KERMT” Studded & Spiked Ankle Boots

Update (10/15/2013): Stumbled upon another super fabulous and almost identical Saint Laurent boot look-a-like at Jessica Buurman. Not a steal at $195, but so close to the original!

Jeffrey Campbell “Draco” Strapped Stud Boots

One look at the price tag of the (Y)SL boots and it was clear that there’s no way I could afford them. So what’s the next best thing? Yeah, Jeffrey Campbell and their “Draco” boot. Not a 1:1 dupe but obviously very, very Saint Laurent inspired. At $329.95 this ain’t a steal, but it’s still way cheaper than the Saint Laurent original.

Oh, Tom Ford! Ever since watching this documentary about him, I kind of have developed a soft spot for the well-spoken Texas-born designer. While I was a little too young to appreciate his creativity and talent when he was doing his magic for Gucci and YSL back in the 1990s, I have been following his own brand with a lot of interest over the last few years. It’s not often we feature Tom Ford on this blog which is mainly due to the fact that the mainstream fashion chains rarely pick up on his collections, but this bootie is an exception. It’s sexy and extravagant (check out the screw-studded backls!) but also works for the mainstream fashion taste. What doesn’t work for the masses though? The hefty price tag of $1.490!

Call It Spring “Diver” High Heel Booties

UPDATE (10/26/2014): Just stumbled upon these Call It Spring peep-toe booties and they instantly reminded me of the Tom Ford heeled ankle booties above.

Steve Madden “DIANNA” Peep-toe High Heel Booties

If you want Tom Ford for less, Steve Madden is your dealer! Madden’s “DIANNA” peep-toe bootie sure has Tom Ford written all over it, no? While it does miss the cool screw-studded detail in the back, it does have the higher heel of the two and – if you ask me – the nicer arch as well. Plus, splurging on these booties won’t leave your credit card crying for mercy.

I remember very well how I totally fell in love with this strappy high heel sandal the first time I discovered it on Zara. I was especially smitten with the bright turquoise suede version. For some reason I decided to wait and see whether these would go on sale. As you can probably imagine it wasn’t the best idea because unsurprisingly these strappy heels became quite the hit among fashion bloggers and hence sold out in no time. I still regret not snapping these up while I had the chance because they remind me of these fab Alaïa sandals which I absolutely adore.

Obsession Rules “Victoria” Strappy Suede Sandals

UPDATE (04/12/2014): Stumbled upon this Zara dupe by Obsession Rules which is actually $10 more expensive than the real deal, however, overall it’s a rather reasonable price for a real suede shoe and if you’re desperate for the look of the Zara heels, these are a an almost perfect match (the only noticeable difference is the slightly lower heel of these).

Bonnibel Sonya-4 Strappy Peep-Toe Heels

No need to worry though because I happened to come across these wallet-friendly faux suede heels by Bonnibel which are a total 1:1 dupe of the Zara sandals above. Too bad these don’t also come in turquoise. But black and beige are absolutely fine, too!

I’ve been a lot on my feet lately; running errands, organizing stuff and flat sandals have been my lifesavers! We all love a good high heel, but sometimes life just won’t let us have them. There’s a ton of ugly flat shoes out there, but there are also shoes out there like these by Givenchy. Classic and minimalistic and yet still fabulous in its own simple way, don’t you think? And expensive, of course. Let us not forget about that.

If you crave Givenchy but don’t have the neccessary shopping budget, then here’s a great and wallet-friendly alternative we discovered at Sole Society. The clasp is slightly different, but the overall look is still very similar to the real deal. Available in black, taupe and dark brown.

Who could not love Nikki Reed‘s outfit here? A cool leather jacket, red lips and matching heels, a striped shirt paired with skinny jeans and big black shades – isn’t that a look pretty much every woman would approve (and one that would make almost every woman look good in)? It’s equally cool and casual, but also dressed up thanks to the heels and red lips and a little badass, too. Below is our budget-friendly take on Nikki Reed’s fabulous outfit. Do you like it?
