I know pencil skirts aren’t the most comfortable to wear and that crop tops aren’t to everyone’s taste as well, but personally, I do love the concept of both. Especially when put together. So when I spotted this gorgeous white lace pencil skirt at Topshop I knew I had to pair it with the lovely striped crop top I’ve seen the day before. A little red bag, nude heels, a dramatic cat eye and a few glitzy accessories finish off my springy budget look. Do you like it?

Shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti is a well-known man on this blog because a) his shoes are absolutely loved by celebrities and b) because his shoes are often copied. And while it’s not cool to copy, I really can’t blame the copycats because shoes as fabulous as these scalloped suede lace-up sandals need to be brought at more affordable price points. At least that’s how I think. My obsession for these Zanotti heels started when I first saw Aimee Song from Song of Style rocking these high-heeled beauties in various of her outfits. I just love the delicate nature of these! They’re incredibly sexy yet still elude a sense of romance. But here’s the deal-breaker: they cost a whopping $1.095 and are pretty much sold out everywhere.

Reverting back to the 1920s Christian Louboutin strikes again with these beautiful Burlina T-Strap Peep-toe Platform Pumps. While the inspiration from the Flapper era is quite obvious, the sophistication is also very palpable. This classical design gone contemporary brings back nostalgia for Old Hollywood Glamour, yet the price is the direct opposite. This contradictory mix of fun sophistication is a modern interpretation of 20s inspired wardrobe for the quintessential woman. If you love these as much as I do, than you must check out the look-a-like below!

When it comes to Isabel Marant shoes, it’s always either hit or miss for me. Marant’s Birkenstock-like sandals from her recent S/S 2014 collection for example, didn’t resonate all too well with me, but these strappy high heel sandals here however are a total win in my book. They slightly remind me of a certain Alaïa pair from a couple years ago which is obviously a good thing because I’m absolutely obsessed with Alaïa shoes. Too bad these Marant heels are just as expensive as Alaïa’s. Boohoo!
