New Year’s Eve Outfit – Black & Gold

by Irina on December 31, 2015

And here we are again. The last day of the year has come and once more it’s time to say our goodbyes to a year gone by so fast. Reflecting on the last 12 months: the good, the bad and the ugly makes me all melancholic, excited and thankful at the same time. I know it sounds super clichĂ©, but I love New Year’s Eve, it always gives me that sense of new beginnings and endless possibilities laying ahead. That’s why I love to dress up on this special day and celebrate it champagne, heels and lots of glitter. This year I felt like going with a black and gold theme. Simple elegance combined with bold jewelry. Sexy and daring without being overly complicated, a mantra I also want to become my mindset in 2016. What’s yours?

A few last words: make sure to say goodbye to all the bad things that have happened to you and leave them behind in the year 2015. Concentrate on a fresh, new start, reset your body and mind and do whatever makes you happy in 2016. Happy new year, everyone!

We’ve featured quite a number of Christian Louboutin shoes here on InTheirCloset and I think that’s because, other than being extremely popular with our readers, they are also what I would classify as “classic”. Louboutin pumps range from demure to over the top but almost all of them feel timeless. CL’s “Claudia” ankle-strap sandals are no exception. They are simply a new take on a tried and true shoe. Look how beloved these are by hollywood starlets and Playboy bunnies alike. You’d probably have to be either or both to swing that price tag though.

Ivanka Trump “Bulbli” Ankle Strap Sandals

Update (12/14/2010): Well, well. Seems like Ivanka Trump can add shoe designer to her resume now?! Or maybe not because her “Bulbli” sandals look like spot-on clones of Louboutin’s Claudias though I must admit they have the much nicer price tag. Available in black, red or graphite patent.

Aldo “Brodigan” Ankle Strap Sandals

Thank you, Aldo, for bringing us a shoe both lovely and affordable. No, my friends, you will not be able to show off that red sole, but if it’s class you’re looking for, look no further. Aldo’s “Brodigan” pump is the versatile, cocktail pump you’ve been looking for minus the hefty price tag. *Ding Ding*. We have a winner! Also available in a great nude color.

I kind of have a soft spot for chunky high heel sandals. I know they’re not the most flattering shoe to grace a woman’s feet, but for some reason I like them anyway. To me, they represent the underdog of the shoe world. Not really popular but low-key cool. Doesn’t sound convincing to you? Well, then have a look at the buckled Givenchy sandals below and try telling me these ain’t cool! Because I think they’re totally kickass! And not too high. Plus, they have a chunky heel which makes them probably quite comfortable, too. The only downside though? Well, these babies cost $880! Gulp!

Kelsi Dagger “Gina” Buckle Sandals

As much as I love chunky heels, there’s no way I could justify spending such a huge amount of money on shoes, so luckily, I found these almost identical Kelsi Dagger “Gina” Buckle Sandals which sell for much less than the real deal. I also really like the red inner sole on these. Looks kinda Louboutin-esque, no? Anyway, these are made of real leather and come in either black, luggage or greige. You like?

Real vs. Steal – Chanel Spring 2010 Clogs

by Celine on December 13, 2015

Update: This post has been updated on December 13, 2015. Scroll down to see the new add.

Some shoes take time to grow on me; others I want immediately. The studded clogs from Chanel‘s S/S 2010 runway fell into the latter category. I don’t know if it’s the 60s-70s clothes kick I’ve been on recently or maybe just the fact that I love how nude shoes of all kinds elongate the leg (that 4 inch heel helps, too), but I prayed to the fashion gods above that someone would come out with a knock-off (the Chanel shoes being out of my budget and all). Usually, my prayers of that kind get answered – by the Steve Maddens and Jeffrey Campbells of the world – and I was not disappointed…

Jeffrey Campbell “Charlie” Clogs

I just received these Jeffrey Campbell “Charlie” clogs (I ordered them immediately after seeing them) and I have to tell you – they’re just as fabulous as I imagine Chanel’s to be. That scary 4 inch + heel is surprisingly comfortable to walk in and I just love their retro spirit. From the chunky wooden heel to the gold studs, these are truly an excellent knock-off. And for $178 (see retailers listed below for more prices), they’re really a steal. The clogs are available in either beige, black or tan.
