This fall Isabel Marant came up with a hodgepodge of “cowgirl meets rocker glam” hybrid shoes. The “Milwaukee” boot is a beautifully cratfed studded suede and leather Western ankle boot. It’s the perfect fall/winter everyday boot with enough personality to be the center of attention in an outfit.
Writing up a post about these buckled booties by Balenciaga is a real pleasure. Why? Well, mainly because I find myself very attracted to this type of masculine biker boots even if it’s such a bulky boot.

The Balenciaga Cutout Buckled Booties are just great. Since these boots have been making the rounds on a number of style blogs and celebs lately, here you go with a budget-friendly alternative. Topshop comes in second in terms of the Balenciaga look with their “ARABEL” boot that is also available in white and a black studded version.
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.
You’re not going to be cold this winter when you’ll follow the latest trend: the Yeti coat. The last few months, large fashion houses got inspired by none other than Elmo. Emilio Pucci, Christian Dior, Gianfranco Ferre, Dries Van Noten and Ralph Lauren are just some famous names that send these hairy coats onto the runway. The Yeti coat is recognizable by its slick, but thick hairs. It’s wide around the upper body and has no collar. It comes in natural colors such as brown and black, but daring fashionistas like Charlotte Collard rather chose colorful examples . The Yeti coat is best worn in combination with a tight outfit. Think skinny jeans or a short dress with tights. As soon as you’ll wear it with flared jeans, you’ll look like you’ve gained 20 kilos.
