Maison Martin Margiela x H&M Plexi Wedge Booties

Designer capsule collections never really bothered me, mostly because I found most items to be way too overpriced and . Maison Martin Margiela x H&M was no different for me. I know many consider Margiela to be a fashion visionary, but I finnd most of his clothes simply unwearable. It’s just not my style. However, I always used to have a soft spot for his shoe line and the shoes from Margiela’s capsule collection for H&M really resonated with me. My absolute favorite style were the wedge booties with the lucite wedge heel but $350 for a pair of H&M shoes? Uh, thank you, but no, thank you!

While I think $171.99 is still quite a lot of money for an H&M-quality item, these lucite heel wedge booties by Choies which look almost identical to the Margiela x H&M wedges are still about 50% cheaper and made of real leather, too, just like the real Margielas. Plus, you can save another 20% with the promo code above which cuts down the price to a reasonable $137.59 (the store offers free worldwide shipping, too). Now that’s a deal, right?

Chiara Ferragni | The Blonde Salad | Valentino Rockstud PVC Thong Sandals

During the summer season, flip-flops aren’t usually my type of go-to shoes unless I am going to the beach. However, these Valentino Rockstud PVC Thong Sandals redefine the mundane flip-flop, making them an elegant semi-casual yet semi-formal summer shoe.

And, of course, the stylish fashion blogger and footwear designer, Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad, proves all of the statements above. As she pairs them with various outfits, these Valentinos exhibit their endless potential as a versatile summer sandal.

Splurging $295 on PVC footwear that can only be worn only during one part of the year is quite the extravagant price to pay. Thanks to Steve Madden, the “JIFFY” Studded Jelly Thong Sandals are the perfect budget-friendly alternative to the Valentinos above. Priced at $39.95, they are almost identical to its designer counterpart with only minor differences that are hardly even noticeable.

Boyish-chic look


Confession: I never really, fully grew out of my elementary-school tomboy phase. Sure, I’ve traded in my jerseys for jersey-knit dresses, but I will always have to resist the urge to throw on anything off the floor and run out to play King of the Hill with the boys.

Hence, I could not have been more excited to discover Hedvig, blogger of The Northern Light, rocking a smart, stylish, borrowed-from-the-boys ensemble. just throw on a menswear-inspired coat, a few simple accessories, and head out of the house with just enough time left to see what the kids next door are up to.

Christian Louboutin Supra Fifre Thigh-high Boots

Thigh-high boots are dangerous territory because they can easily look…well, wrong. Think cheap-y and stripperish! But let us not judge too hasty here because over-the-knee boots can also look super hot and fabulous. Case in point? These Christian Louboutin OTK boots. The black suede tones down the Pretty Woman resemblance factor by quite a bit while the lacing detail gives them a vintage Victorian feel.

These are thigh-high boots done right, but oh, €1,335 for a pair? I think I’ll have to pass this time!

So you want Louboutin style but for less – a lot less – right? Well, worry not, Berskha has got you covered. Don’t be fooled though, the boots are from a past season. Anyway, I love the way that blogger Laura Ruiz – Ármodi  wear them.

Came across these Louboutin inspired faux suede OTK boots by JustFab. What do you think about these? Yay or nay?
