Last year it was the Rocco bag that made its way around Tinseltown and with one very good reason: it’s AMAZING! The shape was reminiscent of an 80s duffel bag that got a makeover at the fabulous factory and the stud detail made it a great choice for day or night. Though the Alexander Wang Donna bag got less attention, it certainly didn’t lack in the celebrity love department. The bag’s differences made them like distant cousins or perhaps fraternal twins. The Donna is slouchy, only suited for day wear and like its name explains, a hobo bag. But, it is still – oh so perfect!

Urban Expressions Slater Knotted Messenger

If the price tag is just a little too much for you to get your Wang on, then this Urban Expressions messenger bag is your next best bet. Both versions share the same shape, silver hardware, a center zipper, knotted shoulder and front camera-style pockets. If you buy it, we might just be twins, but the identical kind.

Does this sound familiar? You see something and are really turned off by it first, but then, the more you look at it, the more it grows on you until you become obsessed with it? That happens to me quite often I must admit. In almost every case it’s a shoe which I first hate, then like and finally LOVE! The last time this happened to me was with these lace-up ankle boots by Ann Demeulemeester.

($985, Saks Fifth Avenue)

When I first saw them, I thought they were way too clunky for a woman’s feet. But I couldn’t help but be fascinated by them, so I decided to give them another chance and googled them. Sometimes, in order to be able to see a shoe’s full potential, you have to see it on a person’s feet. That was definitely the case with the Ann Demeulemeester lace-up boots. The moment I saw the models flaunting them in a mini dress, I was irrevocably in LOVE!

I couldn’t find any celebrities rocking these beauties, but fashion editors and style bloggers like Jane of Sea of Shoes happen to love them as much as me.

Forever 21 Lace-Up Peep-Toe Booties

UPDATE (01/06/2015): Now look at these lovely lace-up booties booties which I’ve discovered at Forever 21 today. So cool, right? They totally reminded me of the Ann Demeulemeester bootis above. I’m especially in love with the olive color.

Jeffrey Campbell Corset Heels

UPDATE (10/05/2009): More good news! Free People have finally restocked Jeffrey Campbell’s Ann Deumeulemeester knockoffs. Missed out on these the first time? Now is your chance to get hold of these cuties!

Sometimes I think everything Jeffrey Campbell does these days is copying other people’s work. Well, it may be unethical, but at least it allows us budget fashionistas to be fashionable without the hefty price tag. Look at these beautiful, almost identical knockoffs. Pretty amazing, huh? They sure are shamelessly expensive for knockoffs, but even priced at $198 they are about $700 les than the originals, so they can’t be TOO bad, right? All sizes are still available, but you better be fast as these knockoffs won’t stay for too long (they’re also exclusively sold at Free People, so if they are gone there, you won’t find them anywhere else).

October has arrived which means it’s officially “bootie time“. I have been swooning over Alaïa shoes for years now and I have yet to be disappointed. A few season ago Azzedine Alaïa created these beautiful nude suede high heel lace up ankle boots which have clear cutout mesh panels. Aren’t they absolutely pretty? I can totally see them working with almost anything in a woman’s wardrobe (jeans, dresses, you name it). Unfortunately, Alaïa shoes aren’t known to be budget-friendly… what a bummer!

Oh my, Tom Ford, your shoes are giving me serious heart palpitations! So we’ve already shown you the OTT mirrored mosaic OTK boots from the SS14 collection two weeks ago and here we have another pair: a just as extravagant and insanely sexy lacey thigh-boot. But all that footwear sexiness comes with a price tag of $3.600. Yup, that should cool us down a little.

If you love these as much as I do, better get them ASAP, I am sure they will sell out in no time!
