If you are familiar with the fashion blogosphere I’m pretty sure you will all remember the studded Chloé Susan (also sometimes called “Susanna” or “Suzanna”) ankle boots below as they’ve created quite a buzz among fashion bloggers in 2009. Even though they cost more than a grand, people bought them like crazy and the boots soon were sold out everywhere.

Chloé Pre-Fall 2008

The studded ankle boots were part of Chloé’s Pre-Fall 2008 collection and came in an array of colors like red, white, black and green (my personal favorite!).

Kate Bosworth & Sienna Miller Love Chloé

Famous fashionistas Kate Bosworth and Sienna Miller both sported the studded ankle boots in red. Kate was literally obsessed with those boots and wore them whenever possible last year. And can we blame her? They are so cute and both women looked absolutely fabulous wearing them, didn’t they?

Lemaré “Chantal” Studded Ankle Boots

Update (11/11/2016): OMG! Just spotted these insanely similar Chloé Susanna boot dupes by Lemaré! Aren’t they absolutely gorgeous? And so spot-on to the real deal, too! They come in various colors and uppers and you can even choos between different metal hardwares (silver or gold). The price is a little steep at €260, but I don’t think I have seen a Chloé Susanna dupe as spot-on as this one, so it might be worth the investment! You better don’t wait around for them to go on sale because these babies will sell out fast!

Jeffrey Campbell “Starburst” Studded Ankle Boots

Update (05/30/2012): Jeffrey Campbell‘s highly-coveted “Starburst” booties are now available for European fans for at British shoe e-tailer Office. Better get them quick before they sell out!

Free People always seems to get the best Jeffrey Campbell styles. First they got the awesome Ann Deumeulemeester lace-up boots and now they sell knockoffs of the iconic Chloé studded ankle boots (Free People call this style “Northern Lights” while JC and other retailers named it “Starburst”). Don’t they look almost identical? The heel is a bit off, but the studs and buckles are pretty close to the original. The only downsides are that the Jeffrey Campbell studded booties don’t come in red. But the boots are available in black, white and brown, so if you always wanted a budget-friendlier alternative, these Jeffrey Campbell knockoffs are probably your last and only chance as the Chloé booties are a couple of seasons old now.

If you had to pick one pair of shoes to give you that extra boost of confidence on any given day, these stunners by Christian Louboutin would be my choice. You can’t wear them and NOT have everyone looking at you. So, what will you wear with them? Will it include a pair of scene-stealing jeans or perhaps a figure-accentuating skirt? Either way, get ready to turn some heads. Wait, are you thinking: “How will I ever afford these?” – it’s OK, we’ve found hope. Take a look below!

So let me be honest with you. At first, I kind of hated Christian Louboutin‘s Daffodile pumps. They looked too stripperish, too high, just totally OTT. However, the more I saw these extreme platform pumps being flaunted by celebs on and off the red carpet the more I started to like them. Not sure what changed my mind about these… maybe the extra few inches gained by wearing these sky-high beauties? I’m not sure, but I do know that I certainly don’t like the $995 price tag attached to these designer heels.

Wow! I can’t really describe these Christian Louboutin Duvette Metallic and Patent-Leather Pumps in any other way. Far away from demure, these pumps are reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour and spark nostalgia within me. There is something special about these pumps that I can’t quite get a grasp of. The cutouts embossed with gold truly bring luxury to the table, and as usual the sophistication of this shoe is what makes Louboutin so iconic. If you’re as head over heels for these pumps as I am, than the steal below is simply a must see!

Real vs. Steal – Zara Basic Sandals

by Irina on June 14, 2013

Update: This post has been updated on June 14, 2013. Scroll down to see the new add.

If there was a shoe that dominated the fashion blogger world last summer, it were these colorblocked suedette ankle strap sandals from Zara. I lost count how many times I’ve seen these heels featured in style blogs. It seemed like every fashion blogger owned a pair of these. These heels became tremendously popular among fashionistas all over the globe and sold out very quickly; probably because they were so inexpensive yet super chic and totally on trend (colorblocking!).
