Real vs. Steal – Givenchy Multi Band Boots

Lately I’ve been refraining myself from buying yet another pair of high heels. Because as much as I love a sky-high stiletto I just don’t have a hundred parties or special events to attend in order to be able to take yet another high heel out. I’d love to be one of those girls who can easily spend a whole day in five inchers, but the truth is that I run most of my daily errands in low to mid-heeled shoes – mostly booties in particular. I really like these Givenchy boots below for example. The various thin straps give this shoe a sort of mummy/bondage look which is a nice interesting detail and the heel while definitely manageable and still comfortable will give you another 2 inches plus. However, the price of $995 gives me the creeps!

N.Y.L.A. “Yaritza” Buckle Booties

UPDATE (11/05/2013): Stumbled upon this wallet-friendly beauty of a banded buckle bootie by N.Y.L.A.! A total steal at $19.97 and available in either black or beige faux leather.

Jeffrey Campbell “Isley” Bondage Buckled Boots

Taa-daa, leave it to Jeffrey Campbell to give us the Givenchy look for less! I really like the light beige color as it makes these booties appropriate for summer. JC’s version has an almond toe instead of a rounded one like the Givenchy original, but otherwise it’s pretty much spot-on! Just wish these boots came with a friendlier price tag!

Jeffrey Campbell “Isley” Slashed Open Toe Ankle Boots

Jeffrey Campbell have also come up with an open-toe version of the Isley in black. Personally, I’m not really digging an open-toe on a flat boot (hobo shoe resemblance anyone?), but if you want the Givenchy look in a black bootie, this one’s probably your best bet!
