We have already written multiple times about how Isabel Marant‘s footwear creations always seem to create a massive hype around them. Whatever the French designer brings out on the market is almost instantly set to be a guaranteed success. First, we had the “Bekket” hidden wedge sneaker and the “Dicker” boot and now “Carol”, a crystal-embellished leather cuff sandal with a stacked wooden heel, is well on its way to becoming the “It“-shoe of the season. Much like everyone else, I absolutely adore this boho-chic summer sandal, but there’s no way I could justify that enormous $1.035 price tag that comes along with it.

Jeffrey Campbell “Lakota” Studded Cuff Sandals

Vahni, one of our former guest bloggers here at ITC, has recently blogged about how she (and the rest of the fashion world, for that matter) is totally insane for Isabel at the moment; and for the above pictured “Carol” Sandal in particular. Luckily, just a few days before I happened to stumble upon Jeffrey Campbell‘s “Lakota” Sandal which as you can easily see below is heavily inspired by Madame Marant’s studded creation. I happily passed on the tip to Vahni and she ordered them within a heartbeat. You can see how Vahni rocks her new JCs on her Instagram (absolutely love how V paired them with white denim). Since I am quite positive that these shoes, which retail for $178 (approx. 1/5 of the original’s price) and are available in either black or white, are probably going to sell out very quickly soon, you better hurry up to order these JCs if you’re, too, like Vahni are insane for Isabel.

Very much the modern update on a classic pointy-toe pump, this design by Christian Louboutin is perfect for the fashionista who wants to be the first to add another sexy pair of heels to her wardrobe. While most versatile in black, (the way Rihanna and Lea Michele wear theirs), if you’ve got the budget to also get them in neon yellow… you can count on your feet getting a considerable amount of attention all season and beyond. And considering the popularity of this pair among Hollywood’s most stylish stars, it’s no wonder you can’t find them in stores. But, the good news is other designers are definitely catching on and look-a-likes have begun to emerge… One of the first designs to echo this coveted futuristic design at an affordable price is shown below…

Wild Rose Posy-01 PVC Ankle Strap Pumps

If you are a huge fan of the designer look above, then why not have a little fun with this version by Wild Rose? While it’s definitely not worth a huge investment, if you’re one to try many different styles, you can have a lot of fun wearing these. I do wish they had a little bit of a higher/skinnier heel and lower cut toe, but for ca. $30 you can play with this trend and show a little pop of neon under some trousers during cocktail hour. Pick one other accessory in a complimentary neon shade (like a cuff or a great belt) to really pull the outfit together and make it look effortless. Perhaps try the bright orange pair under some navy pinstripe trousers, a white blouse and a couple bright bangles in gold and magenta.

Ever since I discovered this Instagram picture on @theshoegirl‘s Instagram profile a few months ago, I couldn’t stop thinking about those gorgeous caged booties. Something about them was screaming EXPENSIVE to me, but I couldn’t recall any designer doing such a caged suede bootie style in the last couple seasons. For weeks, I tried to identify and hunt them down, but no such luck! The caged design reminded me of the famous YSL cage heels from Spring 2009 as well as Louboutin’s Coussin booties which I both loved very dearly. I was already giving up hope when suddenly I came across two (!) great alternative finds in one day. First one is Schutz‘ “Sid” suede bootie which originally retailed for a whopping $270, but is now currently on sale for less than $140. And the second one, and my personal favorite if I might add, is ALDO‘s “Lavinia” caged ankle bootie which looks spot-on to the booties in the picture and cost only $90!

We haven’t paid much attention to Jerome C. Rousseau yet, but seeing what kind of awesome shoes he designs, this is about to change right now.

Today marks the first day of Fall which also means: it’s officially bootie time! And let me tell you: I loooooove bootie time! Why, you ask? Because I loooooove booties, silly. And how could I not with so many fab ankle boots such as these by Giuseppe Zanotti available around me? The asymmetrical zipper that runs across the boot is such a nice extra detail, don’t you agree? It’s what makes this shoe stand out without being too loud and demanding. I love when shoes have that vibe. What I don’t love though? The price of these Zanottis. And we’re already talking sale price here. Sheesh!
