I’m not sure why they call these boots 50/50, when they’re 100% awesome, but I’ll take them! Stuart Weitzman has been a household name in evening shoes for a very long time. Many people don’t know that the collection features far more than glitz and glamour for the feet. There’s everyday booties, bags and wedges to name a few. In my fashionable opinion, each year the shoes get better and better looking, but the amazing comfort stays the same. So it’s no surprise that many of Hollywood’s leading ladies are consistently seen in Stuart Weitzman shoes on and off the red carpet. These below photos are sure to get you less sad about leaving summer behind.

Real vs. Steal – Acne Pistol Boots

by Irina on September 27, 2014

UPDATE: This post has been updated on September 27, 2014. Scroll down to see the new adds.

Acne‘s “Pistol” ankle boot is pretty much the “It” shoe of the fashion blogosphere because it’s either in every style blogger’s wardrobe or at least on their wish list. Apparently the appeal is partly due to the fact that Acne makes great quality footwear and most bloggers say they were totally worth the investment. At first I didn’t really see why these simple boots were so highly coveted, but the more I look at them the more I start to like them.

Dolce Vita “Jax” Booties

UPDATE (11/15/2011): Woohoo, found another fantastic though slightly pricey Acne boot alternative. These Dolce Vita tassel booties come in either black, brown or cognac. They’re selling pretty quick, so you better hurry if you fancy this boot style. P.S.: I bought these booties recently and now am pretty much wearing them to death! Big shoe love here!

Topshop “AMBUSH” Side Zip Boots

Thank Topshop for bringing Acne to the masses. Their Pistol boot look-a-like is almost just as fabulous as the original and I’m currently debating whether I should try these boots myself to see if they can become my go-to ankle boots for this Fall and Winter. Also check out the other colors and variations of the “AMBUSH” boot herels.

Nelly Shoes “Low Clara” Ankle Boots

If your budget does not allow for a big splurge and you’re living in the EU, you can get your Acne Pistol fashion fix at Nelly. They have a fab Acne Pistol boot look-a-like for under £50/€50, but be aware that these here are faux leather.

A few months ago reader Carolyn e-mailed us and asked whether we could find her an alternative for the gorgeous baby pink moto jacket that Blair from Atlantic-Pacific wore in one of her outfit posts in February this year. Of course we took to this quest and were able to find a few suitable pieces, but none that I was perfectly happy with. I e-mailed Carolyn, made my suggestions and checked her request off the list, but this casual-cool pink look of Blair’s has never really gotten out of my mind ever since. Fast forward months later until today when I, while doing my daily research for this blog, happened to stumble upon this beautiful baby pink coat by JOA which instantly reminded me of Blair’s Sister Jane moto jacket. And while it isn’t a perfect match in terms of shape, the baby pink color as well as the material seem to be absolutely spot-on. And since I totally fell in love with this coat, I just had to recreate Blair’s look with our usual budget-friendly take. Hope you like my style blogger look 4 less.

Does anyone remember when glitter and 5 inch heels were strictly relegated to “Ladies of the Night”; nor would one be caught dead outside of a strip club in anything with these features? Well, I sure do! I’m trying to recollect when the changeover happened and by whom. But until I can recall the exact shoe that went mainstream with a 5 inch glitterati heel, I’ll just enjoy this quite sensible (yet quite expensive), peep-toe pump by the respectable Jimmy Choo.

Ivanka Trump Maggie 2 Glitter Peep-toe Platform Pumps

UPDATE (03/14/2014): After 3 years after our last find, I accidentally stumbled upon these glittery peep-toes by Ivanka Trump today and noticed they’re a Jimmy Choo Crown dupe. A pretty one if I might add.

Enzo Angiolini “Sully” Platform Pumps

But if your wallet needs to enjoy something a little less expensive, then this glittering copy of the Jimmy Choo by Enzo Angiolini will barely sully your shoe shopping budget for the month – only $88.95. By the way, check this heel out in black and red glitter… HOT!

When it comes to me obsessing over shoes it usually happens with high heels only. However, if it’s a shoe by Valentino I most likely will love it no matter whether it’s a sky-high stiletto or a flat gladiator sandal like this one. And I absolutely adore these studded summer sandals! Who wouldn’t anyway? They’re utterly chic without compromising on the comfort factor and the gold rockstuds really set these shoes off. I love how LeAnn Rimes wears her Valentinos with shorts and breezy tops. Too bad I don’t have her shoe shopping budget because at $845 these would have been quite the investment in terms of summer footwear.

bebe “Petra” Studded Flat Sandals

I was so happy to have stumbled upon these amazingly similar bebe gladiator sandals. They do miss one horizontal strap, but otherwise they’re a fabulous Valentino look-a-like. And did I mention they’re currently on sale for $39.99 (were $59.99)? What a great deal, right? But hurry up, some sizes are already out of stock as these summer sandals are figuratively flying off the shelves.
