Here we have another pair of the typically OTT Giuseppe Zanotti pumps. The silhouette is all very similar with the sky-high towering heel and some sort of exaggerated design. As usual, my initial liking towards Giuseppe Zanotti footwear always arises some mixed feelings, which later turn into a slight footwear obsession. Undeniably, these exaggerated peep-toe platform pumps are a form of creative vision. Likewise, they look amazing and really elongate one’s legs for a super flattering finish. I really love how Gabrielle Union paired these pumps with a simple yet elegant red dress.

Sam Edelman “Alexa” Peep-toe Platform Pumps

Although Zanotti is known for his innovative style, Sam Edelman also brings an inventive touch in the footwear industry. Greatly mimicking the designer deal above, these “Alexa” Peep-toe Platform Pumps have a very similar shape and structure. And though the general motif is very comparable, the price tag makes a huge difference! These are not only futuristically beautiful, but also quite affordably priced at $130! Aside from this bright purple version pictured below, they are available in black suede as well.

I used to love wearing white when I was a teenager, but then got tired of it and stopped wearing anything white apart from tops or blouses for a very, very long time. Nowadays, I embrace wearing white again and even an all-white look as daring as this one from Jennifer Lopez really finds my liking. I love the crisp cleanliness of J.Lo’s look, so I tried to recreate her outfit for you on a more budget-friendly level. Do you like it?

I have to admit when accessorizing with jewelry, I tend to go for silver. And these Anais loafer pumps by Alexander Wang are no exception. A beautiful shiny yet matte loafer with matching tassels that will look awesome with an all red ensemble or, of course, with the always proverbial play-it-safe black. But at $650, I’d rather take a pair in silver plated, please. ;-)

Topshop “PLANET” Flared Heel Platform Moccasins

Well, what planet are you on? Um… a cheaper one that’s selling this very cute “Planet” platform by Topshop! Absolutely loving the exaggerated platform and the fact that it’s available in black and silver for under $200.

Jeffrey Campbell “Zealous” Wedge Pumps

OMG, this knock-off is my favorite! I’m jealous of any chick who has this wedge and overzealous writing about this hot “Zealous” heel by Jeffrey Campbell. OK, it’s not the cheapest knock-off we’ve ever discovered, but a wedge like this must be in your fall lineup. Available for $169.95 in awesome fall colors: silver (as seen), black & bronze (paired with rich browns & oranges will be hot). At least the fashion style tips are FREE!

I already mentioned I am by no means a handbag expert. I think I own about 10-15 bags and usually have around 2 or 3 in rotation per season which works out totally fine for me. However, from time to time I find myself obsessing over a particular handbag such as the Marc Jacobs “Stam” bag which was named after topmodel Jessica Stam. The satchel has some obvious Chanel references (e.g. the quilted leather or the gold chain), but I’d still consider it unique enough to stand on its own.

Does anyone remember when glitter and 5 inch heels were strictly relegated to “Ladies of the Night”; nor would one be caught dead outside of a strip club in anything with these features? Well, I sure do! I’m trying to recollect when the changeover happened and by whom. But until I can recall the exact shoe that went mainstream with a 5 inch glitterati heel, I’ll just enjoy this quite sensible (yet quite expensive), peep-toe pump by the respectable Jimmy Choo.

But if your wallet needs to enjoy something a little less expensive, then this glittering copy of the Jimmy Choo by Enzo Angiolini will barely sully your shoe shopping budget for the month – only $88.95. By the way, check this heel out in black and red glitter… HOT!
