I am naturally not attracted to red—I have a total of three red pieces in my wardrobe. But when I saw the red suede Jimmy Choo Fire Cut-Out Ankle Boots like Fergie’s (below), I fell in love. Fire indeed! They are totally hot. There’s just something about all those stripes of skin peeking through.

Vince Camuto “Aphrodite” Sandals

Who doesn’t love a Choo shoe? I know no woman alive who’d deny herself the pleasure if her finances could enable the experience. If only. Since most of us can’t fill our closets with boxes by Jimmy Choo (and because the Fire Cut-Out Ankle Boots are sold out anyway) here’s a nice consolation prize: the “Aphrodite” by Vince Camuto. They aren’t 100% like the Choo version, but still a shapely and sexy pair. Available in black, nude and natural… and I’m loving the natural for all those military looks planned for spring.

Office “BASK IN GLORY” Cut-Out Booties

Also worthy of consideration are the “BASK IN GLORY” Cut-Out Booties by Office. Love this shoe for its Choo-like similarities (the buckle detail and opening at the ankle), and also for its daring differences (woven detail and trim). It’s also available in a delectable dark taupe that really showcases the lovely detail on these booties—you must click over to Office to see the 360-degree view. I’d even go so far as to say that I like the dark taupe better than the Choo booties. Now that speaks volumes, doesn’t it?

  • Wow Cindy Crawford still looks unbelievable?

    I guess the real vs. steal question could be posed for her face, as well?
