Even though I’m still missing the “Yves” in Saint Laurent, I must admit that Hedi Slimane is doing a remarkable job on revamping the (Y)SL brand. I’m a great fan of the new shoes and bags line in particular. There are so many elegant and timeless pieces to choose from! I first have seen these minimalistic ankle strap heels shown below on Karla’s blog and immediately fell in love with them as they match my vision of “the” perfect ankle strap high heel sandal! If only they’d match my shopping budget as well…

Jeffrey Campbell “Strides” Ankle Strap High Heel Sandals

Update (02/28/2015): Stumbled upon this great Saint Laurent Jane alternative by Jeffrey Campbell. JC’s version has a slightly higher platform, but otherwise the design is almost the same. Also available in nude/ivory leatherls.

Topshop UNIQUE Hi Strappy Sandals

While browsing through Topshop‘s newest arrivals today, I spotted this little fella here and was instantly reminded of the Saint Laurent Jane heels. Although the ankle strap is significantly wider than on the SL original and the price tag at $230 not exactly steal-worthy, I still think these’d be a great buy if you’re looking for a budget-friendl(y)ier Saint Laurent alternative because the overall look of these Topshop heels is still very, very similar to the designer version.

Lace-Up heels have officially conquered the shoe world and just like skinny jeans, they are here to stay! We’ve written about lace-up heels several years ago and ever since more and more lace-up styles have surfaced. There just seems to be something so absolutely irresistible about an intricately laced-up foot on a stiletto heel. No doubt: lace-up heels are THE sexy shoes of the moment! If you can’t afford the pricey designer kind à la Aquazzura, you have to turn to the high street and other fast fashion retailers to get your fashion fix. Topshop‘s sexy “Gillian” heels were (and still are) incredibly popular among the fashion blogosphere and have sold out multiple times on the website already. Luckily, you don’t even have to spend that much because I discovered a spot-on “Gillian” dupe by Breckelle’s that looks just like the Topshop version, but costs only a little more than 10% of it! Super steal deal alert!

P.S.: Topshop’s “Gillian” Pumps are also available at Topshop (d’uh!) and Breckelle’s Mandy-02 Heels are also available at Amazonamazon.

Even though I love high heels and complex designs, sometimes shoes have to be simple, flat and wearable in order to fit one’s needs of everyday life. Over the years, I have come to love and appreciate neutral-colored ankle boots. They are easy to combine, comfortable and look good with virtually anything in your closet. You might also already know about my passion for anything Alexander McQueen and these chain-embellished booties from the lower-priced McQ Alexander McQueen line unite everything I love in a good ankle boot. They are flat (= comfortable) yet have a small heel (= added height) and the gold chain is a nice little detail which gives these booties a more individualistic, unique look. If only I could afford these…
