I have yet to come across an Alaïa shoe that I don’t like or covet. His footwear creations are always the right amount of edgy, sexy and creative. Just take a look at these super hot leather and stretch crisscross stilleto sandals! Imagine how awesome these would look with a leather leggings and a structured white blazer! They’re currently on sale at Net-A-Porter (which is a good thing), but even the sale price is still pretty steep at $1.347,50. Some day… some day I will own a pair of Alaïa heels! Too bad it probably won’t be these ones.

I have already written in length how much I love everything “Rockstud” from Valentino, so I won’t even start elaborating how I lust over these pyramid studded ankle wrap espadrilles. But the whopping $895 price tag attached to these summer shoe beauties makes them absolutely inaccessible for me. So when I spotted the non-studded ShoeDazzle “Morena” espadrilles shown below, I thought these would be the perfect fit for a DIY Valentino Rockstud project. Personally, I’m not much of a DIYer, but since this DIY idea would only require ironing on a couple of pre-glued studs, the task sounds actually manageable even for absolute DIY beginners like me. What do you think? Are these shoes worth the effort?

Selena Gomez may currently be on everyone’s radar due to her opening up about her chemotherapy to fight lupus, but she’s on mine because her sense of style, more than often than not, is absolutely top notch! One of my favorite Selena off-duty looks included a grey head-to-toe knitwear ensemble which she posted on her Instagram last year. Her getup was probably by Zara and it instantly reminded me of Marc Jacobs head-to-toe cashmere lookls from F/W 2014. I really loved Selena’s cozy meets casual knitwear look, but went to forget about it until very recently when I stumbled upon this awesome look-alike two-piece ensemble by BCBGeneration which looks just like Selena’s version. A few days later, I discovered another great look for less option at Stradivarius and took it as a sign to recreate Selena’s outfit here on this blog. What do you think, did I nail her look or what?

It’s mostly all about high end designer fashion here on this blog, but once in a while a trend is born right among us in the budget fashion sector. Case in point: these vividly blue Zara slingback high heel sandals. I feel like I’ve seen these strappy heels a thousand times on Instagram this year and I’ve been obsessed with them ever since I first saw them on the Zara website. They weren’t expensive at $79.90, but unfortunately these heels sold out so fast that many didn’t get a chance to buy them in the first place, me included. I then tried to hunt them down on eBayebay, but the asking prices of $100+ (for used shoes!) were absolutely ridiculous! So I was slowly coming to terms that I would have to let these beauties go. Luckily, I was wrong!

Fashion Union Lace Up Heels

Update (10/10/2015): Discovered another Zara dupe today! This one’s by Fashion Union and I kinda think this a rebranded version of the Missguided heel below.

If you missed out on the Zara heels and are not willing to shell out more than the original price, you’ve come to the right place. Because I just happened to stumble upon these spot-on Zara dupes at Missguided. They’re absolutely identical in terms of design and color, plus they’re $40 cheaper than the Zara version. Personally, it’s all about the vibrant blue color for me, but these heels are also available in nude, black and berry red faux suede if these colors are more to your liking.
