3 weeks ago Taylor Swift made a TV appearance on The View where she openly spoke about the infamous Kanye West VMAs incident. While most people were interested in all the drama and the juicy details, I found myself being captivated by Taylor’s stunning turquoise strapless jacquard dress by Rebecca Taylor which had a gold metallic jacquard finish and a cute oversized bow detail on the bodice.

Do the Louboutin pumps below look familiar to you? That’s probably because you’ve seen Britney Spears wearing these in her music video to “If U Seek Amy” (watch video here). I already loved these shoes in black, but the orange version is just killer! Such an eye-catcher.

Dollhouse “Soleil” Ruffle Pumps

I already featured these ruffle pumps by Dollhouse the first time I wrote about the Louboutin pumps, but I just happened to stumble upon this amazing orange version only available at DSW and just had to share. Isn’t the vibrant orange color simply amazing? These shoes will spice up even the most boring outfit. However, you don’t know the best thing yet: The pumps are currently marked down 30% and cost only $54.98! Awesome, huh? Be fast and make sure you don’t miss out on this great deal because these heels will sell like hot cakes!

The moment I saw these heels by Proenza Schouler I was truly, madly, deeply in love. This is what I consider art & creativity! I adore everything about these shoes, especially the segmented heel which gives these lustworthy creations an architectural look. Pure genius!

Michael Antonio “Miller” Zip Ankle Booties

If you are looking for a more affordable version of the zippered Proenza Schouler booties, Michael Antonio has a pair of ankle boots that looks just like the ones above. I hear you saying: “What? Where’s the segmented heel?” Well, unfortunately, they – for some reason – omitted that part which is a shame because it’s the heel that makes those shoes stand out most to me. My guess is that the construction of such a complicated heel would’ve probably resulted in a signifant raise in production costs, so in order to keep prices low, they decided to skip that part and simply replaced it with a standard heel. Too bad! The rest of the style however is pretty identical compared to the original booties, so if you have some extra room in your closet, feel free to indulge in these.

Have you already started shopping for fall already? Crazy how fast summer went by, huh? As much as I love summer and all the nice features attached to it (e.g. warm weather, beach days & floaty summer dresses) I am just as much looking forward to fall. I love autumn weather, cozying up in warm wool coats and looking très chic in suede boots. The Christian Louboutin boots below would be a great addition to my shoe closet, but paying more than 1k for shoes does not really fit in my budget.

Michael Antonio “Macey” Ankle Booties

These ankle booties by Michael Antonio instantly reminded me of the Louboutin ankle boots though the buckle on these does vary slightly. The shape and overall look however is clearly inspired by the Loubies. Best thing about these booties here is that they are very budget-friendly at $54.95 and they come in 5 different colors including black leather (shown below), black suede, red suede, grey suede (my favorite!) and tan suede. If you haven’t invested in a good pair of shoes suitable for autumn weather, you might consider buying these.
