Oh, Tom Ford! Ever since watching this documentary about him, I kind of have developed a soft spot for the well-spoken Texas-born designer. While I was a little too young to appreciate his creativity and talent when he was doing his magic for Gucci and YSL back in the 1990s, I have been following his own brand with a lot of interest over the last few years. It’s not often we feature Tom Ford on this blog which is mainly due to the fact that the mainstream fashion chains rarely pick up on his collections, but this bootie is an exception. It’s sexy and extravagant (check out the screw-studded backls!) but also works for the mainstream fashion taste. What doesn’t work for the masses though? The hefty price tag of $1.490!

Call It Spring “Diver” High Heel Booties

Update (10/26/2014): Just stumbled upon these Call It Spring peep-toe booties and they instantly reminded me of the Tom Ford heeled ankle booties above.

Steve Madden “DIANNA” Peep-toe High Heel Booties

If you want Tom Ford for less, Steve Madden is your dealer! Madden’s “DIANNA” peep-toe bootie sure has Tom Ford written all over it, no? While it does miss the cool screw-studded detail in the back, it does have the higher heel of the two and – if you ask me – the nicer arch as well. Plus, splurging on these booties won’t leave your credit card crying for mercy.
