I just wrote about reader requests yesterday. This one came from Shasha that she sent us a few weeks ago where she asked for a budget-friendly alternative for a pair of Fiorentini + Baker boots. Here you go, Shasha!

Bronx “Cur Lee Q” Boots

It was quite easy to find multiple alternatives. This one by Bronx is my personal favorite and probably also the closest to the originals. Available in 5 different colors.

If you prefer the light suede version as seen on Dakota Fanning, you might find yourself enamored with this second knockoff version by Steve Madden. Available in either taupe suede or black leather.

Fall has arrived. We waved summer goodbye. It’s time to pack all the sundresses in the back of the attic and get out the boots, coats and cozy winter scarves. Weather-wise it’s not the greatest season, but fashion-wise it’s a total win. One word: Layering! I decided to sum up all the fall trends that I’ve noticed on the F/W 2010 runways and put them together in one outfit. Tell me what you think of it!

Real vs. Steal – Fendi Peekaboo Satchel

by Irina on September 27, 2010

I love being able to answer reader requests. We are receiving so many by now that it becomes quite hard to answer each and every one of them. However, they’re all being stored in my inbox archive and once I stumble upon something suitable I’ll definitely come back to you. Back in February reader Marlena emailed us asking if we’d seen a steal version of the infamous Fendi Peekaboo Satchel? Which wasn’t the case… back then.

Handbag Heaven “Ashton” Oversized Satchel

Thanks to Handbag Heaven I was finally able to check this reader request off my list. Yay! Obviously inspired by the Fendi Peekaboo their “Ashton” satchel is only a fraction of the original’s price. The bag comes in either black or a beautiful nude creamy color which I personally prefer. Oh, did I mention there’s also a mini version available?

I am always secretly admiring people who are rational shoppers because I am so not one of those people. Whenever I go out shopping for something like new trousers or say, a jacket, I always end up looking at pretty dresses or insanely impractical high heels. I remember how my Mom once took me to a shoe shop when I was like 8 years old and I would refuse trying on any other shoes than those pretty purple patent ballerina bow flats. They were way too fancy for everyday wear and my Mom was doing her best to convince me to settle for a more practical pair, but I kept being stubborn and eventually got my way. My shoe shopping routine hasn’t changed much ever since. Case in point: these disco peep-toe pumps by Luiza Barcelos. Not practical at all and not suitable for wearing on a day-to-day basis, but I couldn’t care less. You can’t control love.

This look of Kristin Cavallari maybe not one of her most recent ones, but I still remember it quite well because I really liked how she mixed the feminine nude lace tank with a sharp black leather pencil skirt, a few key jewelry pieces in gold and neutral accessories (bag + clutch). Check out my budget-friendly take on Kristin’s look below.
