If you’re a fan of the ankle boot trend and have a thing or two for edgy details like decorative zippers, you will most probably be in love with these open-toe booties by Giuseppe Zanotti. While I’m not a fan of the pinkish color, I admit I’m quite smitten with the style. The retail price of $1178 is quite a turn-off; even the sale price is not my cup of tea.

Once again it’s Michael Antonio who rocks my world by delivering an almost identical copy of the fierce Giuseppe Zanotti booties. I much prefer these ankle boots in classic black, but they also come in red, grey or brown. Sizes are already starting to sell out, so be quick to order if you fancy the style.

When skinny jeans first joined the fashion scene a few years ago, I truly thought it was a trend that would come and go like so many others before it. And that neither I, nor anyone larger than a size four would partake in wearing such tightly tailored denim. Well, I’m eating my words now. Skinnies have arrived and they’re even hotter now than they were back in the 80’s. Why? Because they’re not all high-waisted and acid wash jeans. Denim has come a long way. It stretches, hugs, lifts, and is more comfortable now. Which is why Vanessa Hudgens practically lives in her Nudie Jeans. And why not? They’re as versatile as leggings – without the need to cover your you-know-what.

I never wrote that much about Gucci clothes or shoes before because basically I never cared about their line nor did it ever appeal to me. This season however their women’s footwear range is just mindblowing and I’m beyond obsessed with their sky-high platform high heels. So dangerous! It doesn’t come as a surprise that the name of these platform peep-toe booties is “Kills” because whoa! they’re definitely KILLER! You know what kills me besides? Their price tag. $990 isn’t exactly pocket change.

You know when bad style happens? Usually when celebs—or mere mortals—are trudging through everyday life: to the gym, to the gas station, to pick up the kids, to the salon. Unlike some celebs who think sloppy is permissible (or synonymous) with casual wear, Kim Kardashian knows that casual can still be chic. Her latest wardrobe trick is to throw a blazer over a long-ish top, add skinny jeans and a perilously high bootie, and POOF! It’s the perfect, practical, photo-appropriate, running-errands outfit.

It’s not often that I meet a flat that I like, but these flat over-the-knee boots by Chloé aren’t exactly your everyday flat boot. A little pirate (with their folded tops), a little bondage (with those glorious leather straps criss-crossing from back-to-front), these boots are both edgy and practical. Imagine how great they’d look with black tights and winter shorts or leggings and a boyfriend cardigan? Ahhh. I can almost imagine sliding them…uh. Wait. Not at $1.295 a pair!

Jeffrey Campbell “City” Over the Knee Flat Boots

So back to that fantasy of being the ingénue in fab flat boots and shorts…thanks to Jeffrey Campbell, it is actually possible. Save yourself more than $1.000 and grab a pair of Jeffrey Campbell City Over-the-Knee Flat Boots. Like the Chloé boot, they have those wonderful criss-crossed straps, and you can still walk a mile in them. And should your feet begin to experience some pain, at least your finances won’t. Available in black, blue or ivory.
