I am a shoe girl – always been, always will. I could spend an entire day browsing online shops for the perfect pair. Givenchy happens to make some really great shoes and I’ve always been a fan of their designs. If I had a few hundred dollars on hand, I would easily spend them on these absolutely gorgeous cut-out heels.

Vanessa Hudgens Loves Givenchy

High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens has a pair of her own Givenchy booties and apparently likes them a lot. She first sported these with an LBD to the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party in Septemer 2008 and then re-wore them with a casual outfit when she was shopping later in November. I’m not too fond of pairing these booties with a dress, but Vanessa certainly looked very chic in her black getups. What do you think?

bebe “Vixen” Caged Leather Boots

UPDATE (09/03/2009): bebe‘s version definitely has its differences compared to the original Givenchys as bebe’s is made of patent leather and has a platform, but I still prefer their knockoffs out of all I have seen yet. They are certainly not the cheapest option, but the quality of the shoes looks really good. These knockoffs have also been recently worn by Lindsay Lohan. I wonder if she was aware they were designer-inspired?

Finding weather appropriate shoes for the transition phase between summer and fall can be quite tough sometimes. You can’t wear sandals because your feet would freeze at night, but wearing booties the all day long will cook your feet and make them a boiling torture as well. That’s why open-toe ankle booties are just perfect for this difficult time. They let your feet breathe during the day, but keep them warm at night. The Giuseppe Zanotti cut-out peep-toe booties below are a great example of such footwear.

Type Z “Twilight” Cut-out Ankle Boots

These cut-out peep-toe booties by Type Z will give you an almost identical Giuseppe Zanotti look for about 1/6 of the original’s sale price. The heel is slightly thicker on these knockoffs, but apart from that they could be easily mistaken for the real deal, don’t you think?

These Burberry studded ankle strap pumps used to retail for $650, but are now on sale for $384.90 in limited sizes. Studs are hot for fall, so if you haven’t gotten your studded pair of shoes yet, you might consider buying these. If you have that kind of budget, of course.

Black Halo is not the most creative brand when it comes to innovative design. All they seem to do every season is to either change the hemline, color or fabric on their best selling dresses and voilà a new collection is born. Their formula works however! Good thing their collection consists of classic, timeless designs, so lack of creativity is subsidiary and hence can be forgiven.

Try this Black Halo look-a-like dress by LuLu*s if you are looking for a similar frock. As you can see it’s almost a 1:1 copy and the price is just awesome at $33 (this is less than 1/10 of the original’s price). Not too shabby for a knockoff, right? This dress could be one of your key items this fall and you can either dress it up or tone it down with a few simple accessories.
