Zigi Girl

When it comes to designer shoes, I do love big names such as Louboutin, Zanotti and Blahnik, but Gianvito Rossi is my newest discovery and probably a big name soon himself. Admittedly, he’s actually not much of a newbie, but I feel like this brand has risen its profile drastically lately. Rossi shoes are a big thing now and you can find them in almost any designer fashion store nowadays. Looking at shoes like the one pictured below, Rossi’s success doesn’t really surprise me. His aesthetic vision is clear, his designs meticulous and the craftmanship superb (it’s “Made in Italy”, after all!). Too bad all this shoe goodness comes with a matching price tag.

While I never really warmed up to the wedge sneaker trend started by Isabel Marant, I must admit that I really liked Marant’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection. Especially the shoes! I even considered getting the studded “Caleen” booties pictured below, but since I can’t afford designer shoes full price, I had to wait until they went on sale and well, try getting size 9 Isabel Marant shoes on sale. Absolutely no luck for me this time!

Mossimo Supply Co. “Karis” Studded Ankle Boots

UPDATE (11/29/2013): Also came across these studded boots by Mossimo Supply Co. which are more of a dupe of the Steve Madden booties above than of the original Marants, but since Madden copied Marant, you could say that therefore Mossimo Supply Co. copied Marant as well.

From yesterday’s bulky flatforms back to delicate lace stilettos heels today: welcome to the world of Dolce & Gabbana, the epitome of femininity and Italian elegance. Seriously, just how pretty are these lace-trimmed net peep-toe booties? I am majorly in love and officially obsessed wit these, but not so much with the price tag. Oh well, a girl can dream…

I didn’t really know much about Tom Ford prior to Vahni‘s arrival here at InTheirCloset, but ever since V brought the Texan-born designer extraordinaire onto my fashion radar a few years back, he never really left since. And now that I’ve vigilantly watched Ford and the fashion scene for a couple years, I feel entitled to profess the following: nobody does black & gold quite like Tom Ford. Let that sink in for a moment [...] Alright, let’s get to these awe-mazing zipper-adorned high heel booties of his, shall we? Normally, the thought of a zipper being stuck on my designer heels would sound like my worst fashion nightmare, but the magic appeal of Tom Ford kindly begs to differ. Two words: badass and obsessed! Sadly, these ultra sexy and equally unique high heel booties never received the celebrity coverage they deserved (or any personal style blogger love, for that matter). So far, only Mary J. Blige seems to have been brave and fierce enough to rock these zippered beauties yet. Not sure why, but maybe that price tag of $1.390 might have had something to do with it.

ZiGi Girl “Tabatha” Zipper-Heel High Heel Booties

This one’s for you, V! Enter ZiGi Girl‘s “Tabatha” Booties. They ain’t Tom Ford, I know, but they are the next best thing to Tom Ford for $129.95. ‘Cause as much as we’d all love to have the real deal in our closets, at almost $1.400 this ain’t a viable option for most us. So we have to settle for Tom Ford on a budget instead. Yay to paying rent and all the other boring stuff! Get these lovely (and budget-friendly) Tom Ford dupes as fast as you can click that “Buy now“-button because I sense an “Out of stock“-warning very soon here…

Well, hello there Giuseppe Zanotti darlings! You look quite nice. I love your serpent gold ankle strap detail along with the snake-embossed leather and the pin-thin stiletto heel of yours. How about you both hop into my shopping cart, huh? Oh, wait a moment, is that a $1.600 price tag I spot on you? Uhm, well, it was really nice meeting you. Gotta go now. Bye!

bebe “Sameena” Gold Anklet Sandals

If you, too, find yourself having such a talk with those designer shoes above, here’s a great Zanotti dupe I’ve found at bebe. Their “Sameena” sandal is very similar looking to the Giuseppe Zanotti heels, but will cost you only approx. 10% of the real deal. So yay for that, right?
