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.

So I think this is the first time, after more than 3 years of writing this blog, that I feature a sneaker here on In Their Closet. Of course, it couldn’t be just any ordinary sneaker for this occasion, no, it had to be a “fashion sneaker” naturally, the most popular one being the “Bekett” / “Bekket” velcro sneaker by Madame Isabel Marant at this time. Personally, I both like and hate them; I’ve never been too fond of sporty looking shoes, but these exude that cool kid vibe and how clever is the hidden built-in wedge? Genius.

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 $6.5k – ouch!

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 $6.500. Now that’s what I call a real steal!

I’m currently trying to build/extend my jewelry collection which is a rather tough task since I just can’t get my mind used to spending hundreds of dollars on costume jewelry. For example, I really adore this pavé link bracelet by J.Crew, but $125 seems like a lot for a bit of shiny base metal, don’t you agree? That’s why I’ve been on the hunt for something more budget-friendly with a similar design…
