Look for Less – Michael Kors Heidi Boot

Posted by Sophie on Sunday, February 14th, 2010

The Michael Kors Heidi boots (above) are mostly sold out but you can still spoil yourself with the Qupid Nelson Lace  Up Boots for only $59.90.  Lace up ankle boots are perfect with skinny jeans or leggings.  Sexxxyyy!

Look for Less – Michael Kors Glitter Pumps

Posted by Sophie on Monday, February 1st, 2010

I’ve always admired animal prints especially leopard prints.  As 2010 is the year of the Tiger, I’ve been diggin’ the leopard-y stuff even more than ever anything from clothes to accessories including these Michael Kors Glitter Pumps.  A little touch of feline makes me feel pretty & glamorous.  The black & white prints are an easier style than the multi-colored prints.  Reminds me of extraordinary snow leopards I saw on the Planet Earth documentary.  Adds instant whoomp to your black dress.

On sale for only $60.12 $85, the Haidy pumps by rsvp are perhaps the loveliest leopard pumps for the price!  I can’t help but putting this pair with cropped jeans and a cute button-down shirt.  However you may wear them, you can’t go wrong with these lovelies.

* With a slick cutout on the side, this rsvp pump is a “keeper”
* Genuine patent leather or synthetic animal hair uppers; leather lined
* Covered low platform
* Covered high heel
* Durable synthetic outsole
* 4″ heel

Love It or Hate It – Maison Martin Margiela Boots

Posted by Sophie on Saturday, May 2nd, 2009

I’m always lusting after cutout boots but not really fond of the Maison Martin Margiela knee-high boots Kim Kardashian is wearing.

Although with a cool asymmetrical cutout, they look better on the display shelf than on your feet… the exposed area is a bit too much for my liking (from the heel to almost to the toes).

Even if I had $1300 of disposable income, I still wouldn’t get this pair.  There are far too many other yummy boots to choose from out there…

Maison Martin Margiela Boots $1245


My personal taste leans more towards this pair, plus it’s MUCH cheaper!  Which pair would you prefer design wise?

Look for Less – Balmain Studded Crystal Sandals

Posted by Sophie on Saturday, April 25th, 2009

Oooh, ladies… don’t these sandals take your breath away or what?  I have such a huge “shoe crush” right now.  The BALMAIN STUDDED CRYSTAL SANDALS are the hot item amongst celebs/fashioninstas and one of the most coveted shoes of the year.

The big names such as Beyonce, Rihanna, and Victoria have been spotted wearing Balmain jackets, jeans, shoes… yet these heels are my absolute favorite from the Spring ’09 Balmain collection.  Super HOT glam-rock heels!  Yay!


You can rock this amazing style without the high price with Soiree Metal Studded Sandals.  Also available in white.  Yours for $90 from YesStyle.
