Slip-on sneakers are a huge, huge trend right now and I have a feeling Givenchy is partly to hold responsible. I’m totally loving their iconic rose print which they put on pretty much every item at the moment and I think the floral print gives these sneakers a nice, feminine touch. But as much as I love these floral slip-ons, would I be willing to spend $570 on them? Probably not.

It’s hard to define a signature style for Givenchy, but their shoes have been pretty masculine and tough-looking lately. Case in point: this chain-adorned chunky ankle boot. Statement chains have been on trend for quite a while now (it all started with Céline’s ID Choker Necklace, remember?) and this boot fabulously shows how to wear mentioned statement chain on your feet instead of your neck. If you love chains and chunky boots and have quite the powerful checkbook, here you go: $1.395 and these trendy designer boots are all yours!

‘Tis the season to get your spike on! From spiked heels to spiked drinks – I am so down! Which is why this Pigalle “Loubie” should totally be in my stocking. But at over $1.000 and the fact that it’s sold out – ol’ St. Nick won’t be dropping these babies off anytime soon! No worries though, all my naughty girls; we found a nice lil’ knockoff below.

Studio TMLS “Bahia” Studded Pumps

See… naughty girls need love, too. And these pretty pumps as well! “Bahia” by Studio TMLS is not as spiked or as high as the Pigalle, but for about roughly 10% of the original cost, I think we can deal with these few exceptions. But not spiking my drink with enough of the good stuff is a whole other story. 😉

Ever wanted to see the Acne Atacomas of 2010? Well, ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce you to the “Admire” strap wedge ankle boots? While these don’t tickle my fancy I’ve seen a couple of style bloggers crying out loud for these, crashing their credit cards just so they can bring these babies home (e.g., Sandra from 5 inch and up). Chunky wedge boots; they’re still going strong for Fall 2010 as you can see.

Senso “Neve” Wedge Booties

It hasn’t been too long since I wrote my first post on Senso footwear where I proclaimed my love for the Australian shoe brand. And with this Acne look-a-like here they manage to keep my expectations high for their line. Certainly not a cheap thrill at just below $200, but if you can’t see yourself laying down almost $700 for the real thing, these are a great alternative. Available in black or bronze metallic. Don’t wait too long though, the pre-order is already starting to sell out of popular sizes.
