Over the years I have fallen in love with so many Louboutins that I always thought: “Well, now he has outdone himself! I couldn’t love a shoe more!” – But then this shoe came along. The “Impera” – a truly imperial lasercut lace-up stiletto pump. So how divine could a shoe be? And even though it’s usually very hard for me to love a white heel, this one I absolutely ADORE! In both white and black leather. Just look how gorgeous these shoes look on the celebs! I’m especially in love with how Alessandra Ambrosio has worn her Loubies. Too bad they are a) sold out and b) totally out of my budget.

We have already written multiple times about how Isabel Marant‘s footwear creations always seem to create a massive hype around them. Whatever the French designer brings out on the market is almost instantly set to be a guaranteed success. First, we had the “Bekket” hidden wedge sneaker and the “Dicker” boot and now “Carol”, a crystal-embellished leather cuff sandal with a stacked wooden heel, is well on its way to becoming the “It“-shoe of the season. Much like everyone else, I absolutely adore this boho-chic summer sandal, but there’s no way I could justify that enormous $1.035 price tag that comes along with it.

Jeffrey Campbell “Lakota” Studded Cuff Sandals

Vahni, one of our former guest bloggers here at ITC, has recently blogged about how she (and the rest of the fashion world, for that matter) is totally insane for Isabel at the moment; and for the above pictured “Carol” Sandal in particular. Luckily, just a few days before I happened to stumble upon Jeffrey Campbell‘s “Lakota” Sandal which as you can easily see below is heavily inspired by Madame Marant’s studded creation. I happily passed on the tip to Vahni and she ordered them within a heartbeat. You can see how Vahni rocks her new JCs on her Instagram (absolutely love how V paired them with white denim). Since I am quite positive that these shoes, which retail for $178 (approx. 1/5 of the original’s price) and are available in either black or white, are probably going to sell out very quickly soon, you better hurry up to order these JCs if you’re, too, like Vahni are insane for Isabel.

When I first laid my eyes on Tibi‘s crystal-embellished “Britt” wedge mules, I was instantly obsessed! And that’s coming from someone who really isn’t a fan of mules. But this one was different! And while the Tibis aren’t terribly expensive at $495, they are however pretty much sold out everywhere and hence hard to get ahold of. So when I spotted these non-embellished Zara mules below, I thought maybe this could be a DIY project? I’m not much of a DIYer, but the idea sounds doable. What do you think? Are these shoes worth the effort?

After running this blog for more than 6 months, I don’t get as excited as I used to when spotting a new knockoff. Today, however, was one of these rare days. A few months back when it was announced that Chloë Sevigny would design a second collection for Opening Ceremony (Fall/Winter 2009), I spotted a pair of to-die-for black buckle boots on Chloë’s feet and I instantly fell in love.

It was one of these shoe obsessions where I was even willing to take the plunge and go for the real deal, but my enthusiasm came to an abrupt end when I learned that a) the buckle boots wouldn’t be available until late August/September and b) were priced at $625 which is twice the price I expected/hoped them to be.

Jeffrey Campbell “Potion” Ankle Boots

I tried to find reasonably priced knockoffs for weeks, but never found anything noteworthy. Until today when I accidentally stumbled upon these buckled boots by Jeffrey Campbell. Just look at them, they look almost the same except the original O.C. boots have those additional buckle caps which is a minor bummer, but otherwise they are identical and cost only 1/6 of the originals’ price. Big YAY!
