I know I already mentioned that Aquazzura is having quite the fashion moment with bloggers right now, but WOW!, I then went on to discover another one of their latest top sellers: Wild Thing, a delicate suede high heel sandal with intricate lace up tassels and a fringed vamp. Now I don’t know about you, but even though the shoe looks lovely on its own, I wasn’t too compelled at first. But then I started seeing all those gorgeous personal style bloggers donning their Wild Things on Instagram and all and suddenly I found myself completely obsessed with this shoe! I love how many of the bloggers used it to either add a pop of color or to compliment their already colorful outfit. I so wish I could lavishly spend $785 on a pair of shoes, but rent is not gonna pay by itself unfortunately.

Let’s be honest: while we all love shopping for those extravagant, one-of-a-kind statement pieces, in everyday life we’ll most likely reach for just a couple of our favorite basic, proven items. That one great fitting jeans that makes your bottom look all nice and round, that perfect nude pump that elongates your legs and goes with everything, that comfy white tee you bought like 5 years ago that still doesn’t show any signs of wear. Now basics might not be the most exciting things to shop for, but they’re crucially important for the versatility and combinability of your wardrobe. While recently browsing the newest arrivals at Joe’s Jeans online, I noticed they have a great selection of simple but beautiful basics to offer, so I picked out my favorites to share with you. And while we’re on the subject of Joe’s, have you already heard about their new #HELLO jeans? It’s the first jeans that charges your iPhone on the go. Awesome idea, right? What technology can accomplish these days.

Great flats are hard to find. Especially ones that will look chic even with work attire. These ballerinas by Valentino are perfect to wear with chic cigarette pants to the office and look just as fantastic with leggings and a tunic on the weekend. The studs give them a little bit of a vampy edge while the color makes fair-skinned legs look longer. There is even a tiny hint of a heel to balance them out and provide an extra bit of polish. But even though they are quite gorgeous, they are also a little too expensive for everyday flats. The concept is not completely lost though; there are at least a couple inspired-by versions out there for way less. Keep scrolling down for more tips and info on where to find them!

C Label Hudson 10 Studded Ballerina Flats

This first version by C Label has the same studs as the original as well as the beautiful overall shape and construction. The small difference is their slightly higher heel which I love because even though flats are phenomenal for long days on your feet, that extra half inch goes a long way. But that definitely wouldn’t change how you’d wear them; they would still be perfect with skinny or tailored boot cut trousers and a feminine blouse for work. Just throw on a colorful cardigan and instantly feel inspired by a fresh new take on a little 1950’s glamour.

GoJane Studded Flats

Deal: Use promo code “GJSHIP60” to get free shipping on your $60+ order!

The second option we found is from GoJane, and at under $25 for the pair, you can be sure you’re getting a steal. This style works especially well when worn with jeans and a tee for running errands or grabbing brunch or coffee over the weekend with friends. The cut of the shoe is the exactly same as the designer version, the only difference is the hardware and studs, which are more modest in design. But while the other styles might be dressier, these still look sharp and classic; plus your feet will thank you for giving them a day of rest once in a while.

There’s something so Audrey Hepburn about these classic quilted ballet flats by Chanel that makes me fall in love with these shoes right away. Now don’t get the wrong idea, I don’t wear ballet flats very often; mostly because I think they make my legs look funny. I do, however, admire all the women who can just slip on a pair of flats and a cigarette pant and instantly oozing effortless chic looking like their own version of Audrey. I’m not sure what the retail price is for these quilted beauties, but they’re Chanel, so how affordable can they be?

Oh boy! I think I might have a new favorite Chanel bag! I’ve always thought I would never like a Chanel bag more than their classic flap bag, but seeing the quilted version of the Chanel Boy bag below makes me reconsider. It’s edgier than all the classic Chanel bags and I love its modern twist. It looks fresh and new yet still remains to be quintessentially Chanel. Not sure how much this baggie retails for, but I do know that I’m not able to afford it. Boohoo!
