Real vs. Steal – Anine Bing Studded Boots

by Irina on February 24, 2015

I feel like Anine Bing‘s microstud ankle boots are the official successors of Chloé’s highly popular Susan boots. The distinctive stud styling and the long pointed-toe make them instantly stand out and these boots quickly gained momentum in the fashion world and were a regular shoe staple among all the biggest fashion bloggers. I’m not quite sure where the brand came from all of a sudden, but I’ll definitely keep Anine Bing on my fashion radar.

Choies Stud Punk Boots w/ Contrast Suede Panel

If you love the design of the Aning Bing boots above, but can’t afford to spend almost $700 on a pair of shoes, well here’s your budget-friendly alternative which I spotted over at Choies. An almost spot-on dupe of the real deal made of genuine leather and selling for only $84.99 instead of $699. Total steal deal alert!

A few of our readers mailed us and asked for more jewelry to be featured here on this blog. Now while jewelry is admittedly not my strongest forte when it comes to finding steals, I will do my best to keep our readers satisfied. And what better way to start than with Tiffany & Co. jewelry? Introduced in 1995, the Atlas collection is named for the mythic Greek god who holds aloft an enormous globe. Created by John Loring, Tiffany design director emeritus, the Atlas collection explores the raised Roman numerals of its archetype, the Atlas watch. The collection encompasses necklaces, pendants and earrings to bangles and rings in 18 karat yellow, rose or white gold and sterling silver with diamonds. In this post we focus on the Atlas hinged bangle. The 18k gold version comes in at a whopping $7k – ouch!

GoJane Roman Numeral Segmented Bracelet

Update (02/24/2015): Found another great and affordable Tiffany & Co. Atlas bracelet dupe at GoJane. Available in either gold- or silvertone for only $16.40!

Zenzii Roman Bangle

Luckily, you don’t have to rob a bank to get a similar look. These Roman bangles by Zenzii are a great alternative if you’re after the coveted Atlas bracelet. It’s not a total match because the Zenzii bangles feature more Roman numerals than the real deal, but it’s still a great look for less which will cost you only $28.95 instead of $7.000. Now that’s what I call a real steal!

A good friend of mine recently bought a Mulberry Bayswater (a gift to herself on her birthday) and for a week straight everyone oohed and ahhed over it at the office. It is a spectacular bag, to be sure, but I think this new Mulberry takes the cake: the Alexa – a slouchier, more casual version of the Bayswater named after British style export Alexa Chung who is a true devotee of the Mulberry brand. If you haven’t heard tell of this bag yet, you will. Speculated to be the “It” bag of the moment, the Alexa sold out instantaneously on Net-A-Porter after being added last week. Restocks are supposed to follow soon, but even still, this beautiful creation is way out of my sad little budget.

Update (02/20/2012): Alright, it’s official!

I already own a bag by Melrose Glam (the Alexander Wang Rocco inspired one, review coming in March) and the quality of this bag is ridiculously amazing. Definitely worth the investment.

Chloé has created quite a few “It“-bags in the last 10 years, but it’s been rather quiet on their bag front lately. Well, that’s not entirely sure because there’s one bag that is currently making the rounds and getting a lot of hype and exposure – the “Alice” tote, a large two-tone bag that has the shape of a classic doctor’s bag. I’m usually not a big fan of colorblocking on bags, but this one I find very pretty. I really like its classic elegance and clean lines and the gold hardware gives this bag that extra oomph. But this beauty comes at a price. At $2.195, to be exact.
