We all know those little festive red carpet clutches are anything but practical or versatile, but they’re just so darn pretty, aren’t they? My personal favorite brand for those type of box clutches is Alexander McQueen. I just love the mix of beauty and morbidity that graces their famed skull clutches. What I don’t love though is their exorbitant price tag. $1.400 for a handful of baggie? I think I’ll have to pass, thanks.

Urban Expressions “Galaxy” Rhinestone Box Clutch

A great alternative to pricey Alexander McQueen are these Urban Expressions box clutches. I really like the blue version here! Similar look, but much nicer in price. I just miss the skull clasp on these. Also available in other colors.

Who could not love Nikki Reed‘s outfit here? A cool leather jacket, red lips and matching heels, a striped shirt paired with skinny jeans and big black shades – isn’t that a look pretty much every woman would approve (and one that would make almost every woman look good in)? It’s equally cool and casual, but also dressed up thanks to the heels and red lips and a little badass, too. Below is our budget-friendly take on Nikki Reed’s fabulous outfit. Do you like it?

I didn’t really know much about Tom Ford prior to Vahni‘s arrival here at InTheirCloset, but ever since V brought the Texan-born designer extraordinaire onto my fashion radar a few years back, he never really left since. And now that I’ve vigilantly watched Ford and the fashion scene for a couple years, I feel entitled to profess the following: nobody does black & gold quite like Tom Ford. Let that sink in for a moment [...] Alright, let’s get to these awe-mazing zipper-adorned high heel booties of his, shall we? Normally, the thought of a zipper being stuck on my designer heels would sound like my worst fashion nightmare, but the magic appeal of Tom Ford kindly begs to differ. Two words: badass and obsessed! Sadly, these ultra sexy and equally unique high heel booties never received the celebrity coverage they deserved (or any personal style blogger love, for that matter). So far, only Mary J. Blige seems to have been brave and fierce enough to rock these zippered beauties yet. Not sure why, but maybe that price tag of $1.390 might have had something to do with it.

ZiGi Girl “Tabatha” Zipper-Heel High Heel Booties

This one’s for you, V! Enter ZiGi Girl‘s “Tabatha” Booties. They ain’t Tom Ford, I know, but they are the next best thing to Tom Ford for $129.95. ‘Cause as much as we’d all love to have the real deal in our closets, at almost $1.400 this ain’t a viable option for most us. So we have to settle for Tom Ford on a budget instead. Yay to paying rent and all the other boring stuff! Get these lovely (and budget-friendly) Tom Ford dupes as fast as you can click that “Buy now“-button because I sense an “Out of stock“-warning very soon here…
